Bose has recently announced a surprising product which is named as the postable Home Speaker. The portable home speaker is priced at $349. As per the connectivity is concerned, the portable home speaker by Bose is featured with Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth connectivity which instantly supports Google Assistant, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect as well as Amazon’s Alexa. It is basically a smart speaker which has three high-quality voice, voice-enabled audio devices.
The all-around versatile Bose battery-powered speaker looks quite similar to the next-generation version of the Bose’s SoundLink Revolve+. As per the design is concerned, the shape of the portable home speaker is cylindrical as well as a solid base like shape which is again featured with slim bucket-shaped handle. The portable speaker is measured 4 inches in diameter, 7.5 inches high as well as 2.3 pounds weighs. The speaker contains three passive radiators along with a deflector as well as the high-exclusion driver inside it. All these three components immensely help to spread audio in each and every direction.
As we have mentioned above the Home Speaker of Bose has W-Fie as well as Bluetooth connectivity options enabled. Along with this, it is also featured with Amazon Alexa as well as Google Assistant built-in. So through this users can easily play AirPlay 2 for playing music from their Apple devices. They can even play music through Spotify connect for listening to tunes from the Spotify App. As per the update in the next year, it will be allowing two different portable sound but ar the price of $349 a pop. It becomes a bit expensive proposition here.
Generally, we do not find lots of portable smart speakers available. This is because most of them need to be plugged into work. Having said that there are indeed some good options provided by JBL and various other brands. This is going to be the first-ever portable smart speaker by the brand Bose which can smoothly be able to run with both Amazon Alexa as well as Google Assistant.
The portable smart home speaker from Bose is featured with a solid aluminum case which is IPX4 water resistance rating. This means the portable speaker has long-lasting quality and is quite durable for withstanding the occasional splash. As per the brand, it confirmed that the Portable Home Speaker has the ability to last up to 12 hours on just a single charge. It contains USB-C charge slot through which the charger needs to be connected. Along with this, the users can even purchase a charging cradle which is priced at $29 that is solid separately. Having said that it is a purely optional one.
The brand is also promising to provide some more and additional connectivity features with its app. Through this, the users can easily be able to link up a multiroom sound system in connection with various other smart speakers of Bose. At the end of this year, the brand is also planning an Ultimate Ear style set up which will allow the users in pairing the Portable Home speaker with a couple of older products such as Mini, Micro color as well as Revolve. At the beginning of the next year, the company will also be offering stereo pairing for two different Portable Home Speakers.
Yes to be very honest, it is not that easy to go for the Portable Home Speaker when we think about the recently leaked report of Sonos Move. Sonos Move is the first-ever Bluetooth speaker by the brand which will be offering quite similar features to the Bose’s home speakers. As the speaker by Sonos Move comes with various options such as Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, AirPlay 2 as well as Bluetooth. Along with this it will also be having USB-C port down it for the charging as well as charging dock options for powers. Sonos is all set to come up in the market and it will be announcing about the Move at an event by next week. By seeing both the portable home speakers, it seems that both Sonos, as well as Bose, are going to face the tough competition and we feel this time Bose is going to beat its rival named Sonos by announcing about its upcoming it’s Portable Home Speaker first.
