I will start off you have to have the right environment or place to use listen to this product. I could feel the bass in my shoulders. Bluetooth also can connect to two different devices at the same time; I had this speaker connected to my Mac and iPhone simultaneously without issues, playing music from both devices at the same time. The bass of the Bose SoundWear is lacking. Also, although you can tighten the neckband, they will not be stable enough for exercises that require a lot of tilting or laying on your back like crunches, and some yoga poses. Due to the design of these speakers, the user doesn't need to worry about achieving an air-tight seal in order to get a consistent bass delivery. But for the purpose of this review, what is written has been observed.
This Bose SoundWear came with a black stretch cover that was already on it when I removed it from the box, I wanted to see what it looked like with the cover removed, and I found the cover a bit difficult to remove, and even more difficult to put back on, this is because the cover fits so snugly around the device. I can get more like 20 hours but I also have the volume at a low level. The only inconvenience I find is the charging port, which is cumbersome to find the right angle to charge it with. Many people have commented that the headset mic is quite good. The perfect answer for people like me who cannot stand things in my ears or over them for extended periods. While this speaker provides for the listener to be aware of their surroundings, it does mean that others are going to hear your music.
The device itself is great. Unfortunately, since they're mostly made for indoor use, they do not come with carrying case or pouch. This test does not apply to in-ears and earbuds, due to the lack of pinna interaction. My daughter called me earlier and she made a comment on how great the call sounded and asked if I had a new phone. For testing, I used an iPhone 6s, a Moto Z Play, a Mac running the High Sierra beta and Bluetooth 2. I tries adjusting them all different ways. And used special materials like a bend-and-stay steel wire encased in medical-grade silicone that has just the right amount of low-spring torsion to stay form-fitted to your shoulders.
Voice prompts aid with pairing. However, running and jumping will have the SoundWear jostling around uncomfortably. Due to the fact that the speakers are positioned on the shoulders rather than the ears, they get near perfect scores for openness and acoustic space excitation. Think of it as a sleeve that wraps around the unit and zips shut while still providing easy access to the buttons that control it. Bluetooth streaming uses a lot of battery. They're a bit more lightweight than their size would suggest, although since there are no around-the-neck headphones with this weight, you will feel a slight pressure on your shoulders. The audio quality is amazing, which is something you'd expect when paying a premium price for a premium product.
Bose® Soundwear Wearable Bluetooth Speaker It's the best gift of the season - a wireless, wearable speaker. The sound quality is fantastic for a wearable product and I can listen at lower volumes. Do not bend the speaker so that it folds back on itself and do not tightly wrap the speaker around objects. The call quality on this is just amazing as the sound. It rests comfortably on your shoulders, with sound that is full and clear to you—yet minimizes the sound for others. There is excellent clarity, detail, and balance in the highs and mids, and, surprisingly for its size, even bass-focused tracks have some oomph and depth.
I was not expecting it to be such a great experience and have that much fun with it. So they are suitable for listening to podcasts, audiobooks, or music that is not very bass-heavy, but they won't be ideal for fans of extended and heavy bass. Larger values may help pull the soundstage out from inside of the head and bring it to the front. This Bose product is made of quality materials and the whole thing has a premium feel to it. You can also easily manage all your Bluetooth connections.
Buy this Bose Soundwear Companion Speaker, if you have needs like mine, and can afford it. The cover itself stretches just enough so it fits quite snug but can still be removed and spot cleaned or replaced with another color. In addition to testing out gear ourselves, we analyse the results reported from all major American and European consumer organisations and read copious press and tech site reviews. When it matters: When a true reproduction of the stereo image is desired. You'll be as impressed as I was.
The speaker has two speakers that are accompanied by two bass ports. A big plus for buying this speaker is you do not have to constantly be pulling out your ear buds every time someone says a word to you. While wearing the device, it sounds like surround sound. A flexible round and comfortable horse-shoe ring with a small area to be able to put on the device, it simply rests on your shoulders. This value is the inverse of the Leakage test score.
