Play your music wherever you are. No matter what you’re doing. Weighing in at just 0.54 kg (1.2 lb), SoundLink Color II is just a little heavier than a football. And using it is a breeze. Control multiple functions with the press of a button, like answering calls on speakerphone, skipping tracks, switching between connected devices and more. And you can take SoundLink Color II along for day trips without missing a beat of your music. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 8 hours of playtime.
From the pool to the park to the patio, the SoundLink Color Bluetooth® speaker II is a tough and water-resistant companion that’s perfect for any adventure. Featuring a soft-touch silicone exterior and a built-in microphone for calls, it’s your go-to speaker with bold sound—wherever you need it.
The SoundLink Color Bluetooth speaker II is designed for life on the go. The wrap-around silicone body gives it the compact durability you need to toss it in a bag or backpack and take it anywhere. But it’s rounded with a soft-touch surface, so it’s still easy to carry in your hand. And, the SoundLink Color II is water resistant (IPX4), so you can listen by the pool or lake too. It’s tough enough to keep up, with a design that keeps your music portable.
Enjoy any song from almost any device—if it’s Bluetooth, you have everything you need to start playing. SoundLink Color II features a reliable wireless range of about 9 metres and connecting is seamless. Voice prompts talk you through the pairing and you can quickly switch between two connected devices. It even remembers the eight most recently used devices, so you can reconnect your phone, your brother’s tablet or your housemate’s girlfriend’s laptop.
The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. Get tips, unlock product features and personalise your settings so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up.
You can also easily manage your speaker’s Bluetooth connections with a single swipe, so everyone can have a turn at being the DJ. And when loud just isn’t loud enough, turn it up with Party Mode to play two wireless speakers simultaneously. Or switch to Stereo Mode for dedicated left and right playback, giving you a full and dynamic surround-sound experience.

Use of a Wi-Fi® network in the area may also affect performance.
