The Bose SoundLink Revolve is a portable Bluetooth speaker with high-quality sound and a small, durable design. It has a sound field that goes all the way around it and a water-resistant exterior, so you can use it outside or in the shower. The SoundLink Revolve also has a long battery life of up to 12 hours, and it can be connected to other Bose speakers to let you listen to music in more than one room.

Our Verdict

The Bose SoundLink Revolve is a great portable speaker with great sound quality and a small, tough design. Its 360-degree sound field makes it fun to listen to, and the fact that it doesn't get wet makes it great for use outside. The long battery life is also a big plus, and being able to connect it to other Bose speakers is great for people who want to set up music in more than one room.
