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.
