I listen primarily to classical music, chamber and orchestra. However, with the Bose Revolve I have sampled other genres such as blue grass, rock, Latin, Jazz (vocal & small group and big band), acoustic guitar. I am impressed with the sound quality, the clarity â at pretty much the entire audible frequency spectrum (of an older guy). The other impressive feature to me is the relatively deep bass tones. And all this from a small down-firing single full-range driver/speaker assisted by âtwo passive bass radiatorsâ. I am quoting from a review I found on the Internet.
I use the single Revolve on my desk or another piece of furniture nearby at a distance between 4 to 9 feet. I feel setting it on a sturdy wooden plate such as a desk or counter top enhances the volume of the sound. The perceived sound quality is still very good, and loud enough, when placed about 36 to 50 feet away, provided there is no ambient noise. Placing it about two to three feet from a corner gives me the best sound.
The speaker volume setting and other functions can be controlled from a Bose app via Bluetooth from a smartphone.
Some write-ups and ads imply it produces a stereo or âsurroundâ sound. This is not correct. One speaker = mono. I am tempted to get another Revolve for true two-channel stereo performance. BUT I already have a good stereo system with wired speakersâ¦
I stream audio from different sources, mostly from a Samsung Galaxy (Android) phone (I keep older phones for streaming audio and video.) either directly to the Bose or paired with the Amazon second generation Echo Dot system.
Battery performance has been excellent.
Difference between Revolve and Revolve plus speakers:
I was interested in the larger Revolve plus, thinking it had better speaker performance. I wanted to cut off the carrying cord for esthetic reasons.
Bose Technical Support stated the performance of the Revolve (that comes without the carrying cord) equals that of the Revolve plus. Quote from a Bose email: âI would not suggest for you to remove that carrying handle as it will be considered as damaged cosmetic which will automatically void the warranty for the speaker. You can consider getting the Soundlink Revolve instead since there is actually no difference in the sound power and quality. One big difference between the two is the longevity of the playing time once fully charged aside from its size. . . .â
I hope this little review is helpful.

The speaker met my expectations for the most part. The first time I listened to music with the speaker, I thought the bass would be heavier. However, I’m quite pleased with the rich quality of sound the speaker puts out. I typically have the volume on my phone up all the way and the speaker about 25% or less of its maximum. I have turned the speaker up to its maximum volume only once and that was to test how loud it can get. I can confidently say I will never have to use the maximum volume in my 760 square foot apartment – if that says anything about how loud it can get (or how small my apartment is).
The battery lasts a bit longer than the specs indicate. I easily use it over 16 hours over the weekend without charging it. Additionally, the speaker charges quite quickly.
Despite having a 360 degree speaker, I still move the speaker around with me if I’m leaving one room to go to another because I usually take my phone with me wherever I go and the Bluetooth limit is approximately 30 feet. I have had some trouble with the connection when less than 30 feet away but with walls between the music source and the speaker. Additionally, a few times I’ve had my phone next to the speaker and it will still cut out for a second.
I have tried to answer a few calls using the speaker but the person on the other end complains that I cut in and out or they just can’t hear me period despite being next to the speaker. But that’s obviously not why I purchased the speaker so I won’t take a star off for that.
I typically use Spotify Premium with the highest quality download options which I believe makes a difference in the quality of sound you get from the speaker.
Overall, I’m pleased with the speaker as a casual listener of many different genres. I hope this very non-technical review helped!
