Found 6th Dec
Bose® project their mighty wireless SoundLink® sound in all directions with the Revolve Bluetooth speaker. True 360° sound ensures everyone in the room or area gets the same great audio. And because it’s portable, splash-proof and robustly built you can take the music with you wherever: to the park, by the pool, on the beach. The battery lasts all day and you can even take hands-free calls and voice-interact with Google Now & Siri. This is a speaker that’s equally happy indoors or out, delivering acclaimed Bose® sound quality in revolutionary 360° style.

360° Sound
The Revolve is built for portability, but don’t let the size fool you, it delivers awesome audio. A highly efficient transducer produces top-notch sound across the full frequency range. Dual-passive radiators handle the deep lows and make sure bass is powerful, warm and vibration-free, while the acoustic deflector guarantees omnidirectional listening. Packed with Bose® tech, it commands a rich, detailed, lifelike sound in all directions.

Stylish, Robust, Water-resistant
The first thing that strikes you about the Revolve is its looks. The speaker grille doesn’t even have a seam for true consistency of sound and chic. But this is a tough speaker. It’s IPX4 rated water-resistant so it’ll happily handle getting caught in a shower in the park, or life by the pool or beach. It’s even equipped with soft ‘bumpers’ top and bottom to allow for slightly rougher handling, like quickly tossing it into your bag. And smooth, soft buttons provide natural, intuitive interaction.

Brilliant Bluetooth, Big Battery
Connect your smart device wirelessly by Bluetooth to seamlessly play your top tracks, 360° style. The Revolve can connect to two devices at once and automatically remembers the last eight for quicker pairing. NFC devices link up with simple one-touch connection. Recharging via USB, its battery lasts up to 12 hours so it’ll easily keep going all day, wherever you take it.

Phone Functions
It works as a speakerphone when your phone’s connected so you can take hands-free calls with ease, and the quality of the Bose® speakers means words are clear and less muffled. And the multi-function button even allows voice interaction directly with Siri and Google Now.

This is my first deal I’ve ever posted so apologies if I’ve not done it 100% correctly. Amazon seem to have dropped their price for just the black version too although JL have 2 year guarantee.

pity it's not the + version.

What does the + version do extra?

This is a great price. I have one of these and a sound link mini 2. I think the sound quality on the soundlink mini is a bit better than the revolve but I think they have discontinued it now.

Bigger speaker for better audio, longer battery and has a handle from what I’ve read. But you’re paying for it as the cheapest I can see them for is £240

Hot - Bose

Good find.. this is a bargain. Didn't think the Black Friday price would be bettered but this has it well beaten

damn, bought it the other day for 160 - well worth it at 120

Great find thank you

Good price, Not voted

We had one of the Revolve+ but eventually sent it back

sound is a little disappointing NOT Sonos standard

Bluetooth is weak, cuts out at about 4 meters

Would recommend the Ultimate Ears equivalent

Just bought from amazon and used a £10 promo code I had so got for 109.99! Thank you!

We listened to these in jlp recently and was underwhelmed. The UE and libratone speakers have better audio quality imho which surprised me. I was expecting better as a friend has the sound link mini 2 and that sounds awesome.

can I ask what's the promo code

Heat for the deal at it is the best price. I'm guessing that these are probably on a par with the original Amazon Echo sound wise, but if anybody could actually do that comparison it would be appreciated. Feature wise seems pretty solid all round, but having bought my daughter a Soundlink Mini II, I would forever be comparing the two (possibly unfairly I realise).

We have just returned our 'UE megaboom', totally overpriced and overhyped

Yep, you win the prize for dumbest comment of the day.


Nah the dumbmerest comment of the day would be.

Hot - Apple.

Bought an UE Megaboom and Bose Sounlink Revolve. Tested both with different types of music and in various sized rooms round the house. The Bose won hands down. Just waiting for delivery of a Bose Soundlink Mini 2 before I decide which to keep. Great price this though.

Good deal Russell, heat added, was going to buy one of these but decided to get a JBL xtreme instead, speakers are generally subjective and depends on the type of music you listen to. i also have a UE Boom2 which will do for holidays as it is water resistant like this, but xtreme is for round the house and the garden etc

Bose is the most overrated and overpriced tat you can buy in terms of speakers.
Sound quality is average at best and that’s being generous. If you want decent sound quality look at Sonos, B&W or JBL.

I'm gutted because I've also just bought one for a lot more than this. I compared it with the megaboom with several different genres and felt that it was pretty much on par. I prefer the design of the bose because it's more stable and if you want to charge the megaboom or plug in an aux you have to either lie it down (in which case you don't get 360 sound) or have cables sticking out of the top. Be aware that it doesn't sound as "in your face" as a non 360 speaker because the sound is not all being projected right at you, but this is great if you have it in the middle of a room.

Just when you thought that millennials couldn't get any more gullible, they start to pay twice for a pair of speakers.

Within a year they'll be doing the same with shoes and specs.

voted cold, twice.

LOL. To be fair I am not an Apple fan by any means, but they still make some very good products (even if I don't like them because I hate iTunes with a vengeance). But no manufacturer is that consistently on point that you could ever warrant endorsing one of their products based on nothing more than the fact it bears their name. That's the only point I was really making

I also just bought one for 160 from av, though they have a 14 day return policy even if you have opened it.

How can the price vary so wildly on these? Obviously the official RRP is plucked out of thin air if it can be sold between £100 and £200! Already bought the much more expensive + and its probably going back as the difference is now silly. Not going to buy the smaller one though because its not even worth it at this price imo.

Selling mostly on their name now, like many other companies have done

Can these link up with an echo dot?

Can I ask you a question please? Some of you are Amazon Prime Members. Is it worth the subscription? I want to use the streaming side more than the delivery side. I was thinking of paying for the annual membership, but it sounds too good to be true!!!

Sonos or B&W aren't really in the same market as these are they? The B&W is over twice the price and much larger, hardly a shock it might sound better. The Sonos isn't portable. JBL sure.

When I bought my Soundlink Mini ii (2015) it was the best small portable you could get in my opinion and many reviews. As much as I didn't want to spend the asking price for it it just sounded so much better. (I still waited until I could pick it up in an airport cheaper...)

For me it is. Loads of "free" music, films, TV shows and fast delivery (usually). Get a free trial and see if you like it and the selection of stuff.

Re: Amazon Prime. We think it's well worth it, and we are very frugal. Postage alone covers the eighty pounds and there are loads of free movies on Prime. Must say that pay-for films can be expensive, even for older ones. Still worth the money. Happy Christmas

Clueless


Would you care to elaborate as to why you feel I’m clueless? Bose have incredibly good branding and marketing which allows them to sell very average speakers at prices far higher than they should be based on build and sound quality. They used to have some genuinely innovative and reasonable sounding products which is what they built their reputation on. Now they just pedal out low end audio equipment with artificially inflated price tags.

Dead link..both amazon and jl have run out I think! Heat added as it’s a great price..

Yeah I agree, although I’m not sure if sonos or B&W have much that are comparable in terms of being portable and water resistant? The only jbl i can think of is the flip but it doesn’t look as wife friendly as the bose.

People said that 10 years and 20 years ago....change the record. You obviously are just regurgitating the same old rubbish without actually using their products. I agree that some of their speakers are below par. However, they also have many many products that are excellent. That's not my personal opinion that's objective reviews from credible sources.

There was definitely something wrong with the unit you had if you were losing bluetooth connection at a 4m range.
