Meet SoundLink Revolve, one of our best-performing portable Bluetooth speakers yet. It delivers true 360° sound for consistent, uniform coverage. Place it in the centre of the room and everyone gets the same experience. Or set it near a wall and sound will radiate and reflect around the room, immersing you. Taking it outdoors? Great, it’s meant to go where you go.
Which one is right for you?
Our two 360° SoundLink speakers are similar. There’s SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+, which plays louder and longer and includes a fabric handle for easy portability.
Deliver high-quality, low-note performance and reduce wasteful vibration by turning it into acoustic output.
Downward-facing, full-range transducer works with an acoustic deflector for 360° sound.
Omnidirectional acoustic deflector
Spreads sound evenly—without a single dead zone—for uniform coverage.
Astonishingly loud. Surprisingly small.
Don’t let its size fool you. This pint-sized enclosure is packed with more technology than meets the eye. A highly efficient transducer. Dual-passive radiators. An omnidirectional acoustic deflector. All of which simply means you’ll get lifelike sound… and real-life goosebumps.
Packed with power
A portable Bluetooth speaker needs impressive battery life. This one delivers. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery plays up to 12 hours—for listening all day long. Sure, some other speakers may play for longer, but not without compromising the deep, powerful bass you’ll get from ours.
One app. Complete control.
The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. Get tips, unlock product features and personalise your settings, so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up.
You can also easily manage your speaker’s Bluetooth connections with a single swipe, so everyone can have a turn at being the DJ. And when loud just isn’t loud enough, turn it up with Party Mode to play two wireless speakers simultaneously. Or switch to Stereo Mode for dedicated left and right playback, giving you a full and dynamic surround-sound experience.
Your music. Ready to go.
An optional charging cradle keeps your SoundLink Revolve charged and ready. It’s a convenient home base for your speaker, and you can play your music while it charges. Just plug the wall charger included with your speakers into the cradle.
Make a connection. It’s easy. Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing. You can connect to two devices—and the speaker remembers the eight most recently connected devices.
Don’t have your phone handy? Don’t worry. Just press and hold the multi-function button to access the voice input for Siri or your Google Assistant right from the speaker.

What is a Bose Refurbished product?
Refurbished products are a great way to enjoy Bose performance at outstanding value. A Refurbished product is one that’s been returned to Bose, for any reason.
It’s then thoroughly inspected, tested and serviced to meet strict Bose sound quality standards—the same as for a new product. Appearance is closely examined; products occasionally have minor, nearly imperceptible blemishes. All Refurbished products have the same warranty as new products. And are available only from Bose. Quantities are limited.

Do SoundLink Revolve speakers support Wi-Fi® or WiDi®?
No. The speakers’ wireless connection is Bluetooth only.
What is the wireless range of SoundLink Revolve speakers?
The speakers have a wireless range of up to 9 m (30 ft). Performance can be affected by obstacles such as walls, interference from Wi-Fi or other wireless devices.
How many devices can pair with SoundLink Revolve speakers?
SoundLink Revolve speakers keep track of the last eight devices that were paired and connected to them, dropping the least recently used device when a new one is paired.
Can I stream music (Spotify, Deezer etc.) from my computer to the speaker?
Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth and is within 9 metres of the speaker.
What happens when my phone is streaming music and a call comes in?
When a call comes in, the music will pause and the call will ring through the speaker. You can answer the call by pressing the multi-function button and talk into the speaker itself to conduct your phone call. When you end your call, music playback will resume.
What is the battery performance of the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ Bluetooth speakers?
In typical usage, the SoundLink Revolve battery lasts up to 12 hours and the SoundLink Revolve+ lasts up to 16 hours. Battery performance can vary depending on the content played and the volume at which it is played.
How long does it take to charge the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ Bluetooth speakers’ battery?
While not playing music, much of the SoundLink Revolve speakers’ battery charge can be recovered in approximately four hours when using a USB power source. Charging from alternative USB power sources or when playing music may take longer.
What purpose do the voice prompts on the speaker serve?
They provide guidance during the Bluetooth pairing and connection process. They also identify the connected source devices by text to speech, simplifying usage with more than one source device.
Can the voice prompts be disabled?
Yes. Simply press the “+” (volume up) and “–” (volume down) buttons simultaneously.
Can the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ Bluetooth speakers be used to provide audio for video, such as when watching a movie on a tablet?
Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—may be compromised due to various signal processing technologies implemented in the speakers. This is true especially when using Bluetooth as your input. For better synchronisation and lower latency, we recommend you use the Auxiliary or USB Audio inputs. For the best experience, please update your speaker’s software.
What does the IPX4 rating mean for the water-resistant SoundLink Revolve speakers?
The IPX4 rating classifies the degrees of protection provided against the accidental contact of water in electrical enclosures. For SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+, we’ve stretched beyond the required testing parameters to ensure that your speaker will long outlast an accidental showering of water. This means that you can use SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ in more places and not worry if it gets wet (for example, splashes by the pool, washing your car, splashes in the kitchen, etc.). Just don’t submerge it.
