Bose Soundlink Lets You Send Your Music to a… Considerable Distance
July 20th, 2009
Bose, makers of tiny speakers with big sounds and equally large price tags, recently introduced the SoundLink speaker system, which uses a USB device to wirelessly send music stored on your computer to a speaker. No Wi-Fi needed. The speaker has a built-in Lithium ion battery that can play your music at full volume for up to 3 hours between charges. A remote control is included, but there are touch-sensitive buttons on the speaker itself as well.
Awesome right? A technically portable speaker that beams your music in and around your house through the magic of USB. What’s that? The range? How far does it – let me check the press release — hmm. I’d say it has a range of approximately in and around your house meters. Hopefully Bose will be able to give us a sweet-sounding range by August 27, which is when the SoundLink will go on sale, because it’s price certainly isn’t music to our ears: $550 (USD). At that price, there are certainly plenty of cheaper wireless audio solutions (assuming you’re okay with Wi-Fi), so the SoundLink better sound really sweet.
