Still better known for compact home cinema systems, Bose is making a determined and not unsuccessful push into fresher, more youthful product categories. The original Bose SoundLink Bluetooth speaker paved the way, coming in a variety of jazzy colours,...

Bose’s SoundLink Air bundle has a lot in common with SoundDock Portable’s. In addition to the speaker, which measures roughly 12.1” by 6.7” tall by 4.2” deep at its largest points, you get a candybar-shaped rubber and plastic Infrared remote...

Bose’s $479 , an AirPlay version of the company’s venerable SoundDock speaker docks, is a somewhat portable speaker system. I say “somewhat” because though it can be powered by a battery, the SoundLink Air doesn’t include one—Bose’s rechargeable...

I say a "somewhat" portable iPhone and iPod speaker dock , because though the Bose SoundLink Air can be powered by a battery, the SoundLink Air doesn't include one - Bose's rechargeable lithium-ion battery is an additional pay-for option. My review unit...

The SoundLink Air is easy to configure and sounds good in general use. I'm disappointed that the rechargeable battery isn't included, and I find the lack of an on-board power button bizarre. But if you like your music a little bass-heavy and won't need...

For most music genres, the wireless AirPlay-enabled Bose SoundLink Air offers strong overall audio performance. But it distorts on deep bass tracks at high volumes, and at $350, that shouldn't...

Avec le SoundLink Air, Bose s'accommode enfin de la technologie AirPlay d'Apple tout en apportant sa touche audio particulière avec un son chaud bien rempli avec des basses bien présentes, mais sans exagération. Les finitions sont excellentes, mais l'on...

Trådlösa högtalare med stöd för Airplay har vi testat ett antal under hösten här på 99mac. Men frågan är ändå inte om Boses Soundlink Air är den som levererat den bästa ljudkvaliteten av dem alla, även om det inte alltid är en helt strulfri lösning. Det...

De taille raisonnable, facile à configurer, et délivrant un son de très bonne qualité, la SoundLink Air se classe logiquement en septième position de notre classement permanent des enceintes sans fil, ce qui est plutôt bien compte tenu du nombre de...

Apparatet har et tiltalende ydre, er let at placere og nemt at bruge. Der findes ingen specielle finesser, men den reagerer hurtigt og gør, hvad den skal, uden problemer. Selv for dem, der godt kan lide Bose-lyden, spekulerer vi på, om de ikke har...

Bose har tidigare lanserat trådlösa högtalare men då har det handlat om Bluetooth. Nu finns Soundlink alltså även med AirPlay och utseendet är bekant från Sounddock-serien. Vi gillar den rundade formen med dess avskalade yttre och den helsvarta färgen...

Apparatet har et tiltalende ytre, er lettplassert og enkelt å bruke. Det finnes ingen spesielle finesser, men det reagerer kjapt og gjør hva det skal uten problemer. Selv for dem som liker Bose-lyden, lurer vi på om de ikke har strukket det for langt...
