With the 360 degrees sound and a 30-foot wireless range, the Bose Soundlink Revolve Plus demands to be at the center of attention. Quite literally boasting a deep, jaw-dropping sound no matter where you’re standing in the room, the Revolve Plus has a promised uniform sound coverage without a single dead zone.
So, is it worth it, or should you stick with the Bose Revolve?
Design and Build Quality
It comes in triple black and luxe gray color. Both of which suit the minimalistic design of the Revolve Plus. The Revolve Plus is unique and modern, but we should expect no less from Bose. Its seamless aluminum body is sleek and smooth around all 360 degrees, which only adds to its visual appeal.
With the unique lantern shape, that’s instantly pleasing on the eye. You’d immediately recognize it from a distance as a Revolve speaker combining this shape with the flexible fabric handle, and you’ve got probably the most easily portable Bluetooth speaker for its size.
The Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus can easily be mounted to any standard tripod through its Universal threaded mount. Also, using the input button, you can cycle between auxiliary input and a micro USB port input, which also charges the speaker simultaneously.
But of course, portability comes with its hazards. Luckily for us, there Revolve Plus IPx4 certified water-resistant and can take a drop from a considerable height. Keep in mind that it’s not entirely waterproof. So you may wish to weigh up your options if that’s something important to your purchase decision.
The Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus boasts up to 16 hours of battery life. However, I managed around 10 hours with just under a four-hour recharge time back to 100%. Both save themselves while other speakers may last longer; you won’t find bass as deep or as powerful anywhere else.
I’m sure what you all want to know is how sound quality is. Well, the bass is punchy and plentiful though maybe not quite as intense as Bose Soundlink 3. The mid-range is crisp and well balanced, with the bass and high frequencies presenting a nicely balanced sound palate.
Overall, in short, it’s a brilliant sound with minimal compromise considering its unique design and a 360 degree sound delivery.
The speaker more than feels your average-sized room without too much disturbance to sound balanced at higher volumes. Honestly, walking around a room and experiencing the same delivery of sound is something you have to experience yourself to appreciate.
The Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus has NFC functionality allowing NFC enabled phones to Bluetooth pair just by merely touching your device onto the Bose logo. It works seamlessly with Siri and Google Now voice commands, allowing you to control your phone as long as you’re next to your speaker.
The speaker can also act as a 360-degree speakerphone at a considerable distance without compromising unexpected sound clarity.
I’d say Bose did a pretty damn good job in every other aspect. The Revolve Plus is obviously so much more versatile than say the SoundLink Revolve, and it has a bunch of new features.
The whole experience of portability is so much better just because of its sleek design and the handle. I did find myself taking it around from room to room much more than I did it with the Sound Link Revolve.
An essential factor for me is voice command options. It just adds another dimension of versatility to this Bluetooth speaker as well. The 360-degree sound is worth the extra cash over the SoundLink Revolve as long as you can live with the slight very minor compromise on the overall depth of sound
In short, if your Bluetooth speaker is going to be static more often than not, it’s just going to be in one place. Also, it’s not practical to have it in the center of the room. Most of the time, I personally stick with the punchy bass and save the extra cash.
However, If you’re going to be taking this speaker with you around the house or out of the house, then the Revolve Plus was made for you.
