Revolve Plus sounds nothing like a "Bose"
Hello Bose enhusiasts!
I was using my Bose Revolve for 2 years and was supersatisfied with the quality of sound and everything. I was flirting with the "plus" for quite a while (it's not cheap to be honest) and then an oppurtunity came to sell my Revolve and with no hesitation ordered brand new Revolve+.
Surprisingly not so bigger as imagined but dissapointment came when I paired it with the same phone and played same Deezer playlists: less bass comparing to smaller Revolve and sound quality worse compared to his cheaper brother.
I’ve tried all sorts of settings, equalizer, different tracks, putting it on different surfaces. The old Revolve made excellent clear sound (quality & power) on ceramic floor when you put it in a corner about 0.5m from walls. Of course I've tried also with this one but it is a shadow from the first one.
I read some posts that firmware ruined the sound. When I unboxed it it had Version 1.5 but the sound was the same as now with updated 3.0.4.
I've got quite wide range of music genres that I like but Plus does not convince me with any. When I first played live acoustic version of Hotel California by Eagles, smaller Revolve blew my mind each time I played it meanwhile Plus leaves me indifferent.
I've heard quite a few Bose products and none dissapointed me like this one. I know Bose engineers can make super products and I hope there is just "a fine tuning thing" which will be solved with a new firmware on this Revolve+ to make it sound like Bose. If not, I’ve bought myself an average but very expensive bluetooth speaker.
Am I the only one experiencing this or maybe there is something that I'm missing?
