Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker II
A day on the beach. A barbecue in the park. Hanging with your friends. It's hard to predict where you'll be each day, but the SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker II was engineered to deliver bold sound wherever life takes you. And by ready-for-life, we mean marine-tested. Drop-tested. UV-tested. Simplicity-tested. From the pool to the park to the patio, its rugged, water-resistant design lets you enjoy the music you love in more places. Voice prompts make Bluetooth pairing easy. And up to 8 hours of listening per charge lets you keep your playlists playing. Despite its size, you can always have Bose sound. Wherever you are.
Big sound, packed in
Enjoy bold, wireless sound wherever life takes you. As a product of Bose engineering, and thanks to dual opposing passive radiators, it pumps out sound while keeping vibration to a minimum. The result? It rocks your world without moving an inch.
IPX4-rated water resistance. Plus since Bose always takes testing above and beyond, these are tested against water sprayed in all directions for 5 minutes straight-like getting caught in a heavy rain storm. So spend the day enjoying your music at the pool, no worry involved.
Rugged, soft-touch silicone exterior
With a body constructed of durable materials, it features a rounded and compact shape that fits easily into your bag or backpack.
Easy to pair, quick to use
Voice prompts talk you through pairing, so when you're connected with two Bluetooth devices at the same time you can switch quickly. The Bose Connect app simplifies pairing with drag-and-drop convenience, unlocks features and accesses future updates.
When you're connected, you can take calls out loud without having to pick up your smartphone. If a call comes in, just press a button on the speaker. Even access Siri or Google Now.
Power through your longest playlist
The lithium-ion battery's 8 hours of play time keeps your music going through the night, plus compatibility with most USB power sources makes it easily rechargeable.

Deducted one star because it comes with a charging cable only - the wall plug is not included. I'm guessing their theory is that it will be charged by a computer and used on the go. And, yes, "everyone" has a wall plug anyway. But to package a product without all necessary accessories is just not right.
Now for the annoyances: The on/off, Bluetooth, and volume up+ and down- buttons are harder to press than on the original. The thing that bugs me the most is that they are VERY poorly marked--the icons are pale and almost impossible to see, so you have to look hard at them when you want to adjust something, until you know their placement and can do it by memory!
Battery life is average.
One thing I DO like about this speaker is that when you turn it on, a little voice says, "Battery High" or "Battery Medium" so that you know roughly how much charge you have remaining, so that things don't suddenly go silent!
Let me clarify that:The voice says "Battery High" or "Battery Medium" ONLY when you turn it on. There's NO "Low battery" warning as you're using it. I have been sitting here working--and things suddenly went silent!
So now I have to wait for it to charge--I don't know how long--until it will run off battery power as it charges so I can play Bluetooth music from my phone. It's been 20 minutes. Time to get out the 5-disc CD player from 1985 so I can have music in the house. Hey--it still works.
UPDATE: after 3 hours of charging, it was still dead. I called Bose. Customer Service agent asked what was wrong with the speaker. I told him, "It's stone dead!" (Insert Monty Python parrot sketch here) We went through all the troubleshooting steps. Dead speaker, after 12 days.
If you're going to buy one, definitely get the extended service plan!
UPDATE#2: I received the replacement speaker for the one that died after 12 days on the 22 of July. On September 13, I turned it on and there was no sound. Called Bose. Went through all the troubleshooting steps. They were kind enough to put through the paperwork to send me a replacement. Still waiting on it, six days IS reasonable, I don't expect them to overnight it. Now I have to call the Extended Warranty people again to change the serial number again when it arrives. Seriously, people, buy the extended warranty! Money well spent.
Also, the speaker phone does NOT work well with Bluetooth. The volume of the incoming call is terrible. I had to use an aux cable input to get good speaker phone functionality.
Last the volume buttons seem to be finicky and require me to press them several times before I get a result.
Not the best Bose product by a long way, but it is handy and has good battery life and sound.
