Sound (loudness) between two bluetooth speakers

Hi! I am looking for a bluetooth speaker for around a pool.  I'm looking between the SoundLink Color and the Soundlink Revolve. I'm not seeing in the specs the ability to compare obectively the sound quality and loudness (decibels?).  Am I missing this?

Hi Hollykm, 

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community! 

 

Bose does not publish these specifications. The reason for this is that we believe such statistics do not add very much to an understanding of an audio product's acoustic characteristics and, even worse, can be misleading. Audio manufacturers make these measurements independent of industry standards and in varying conditions.

Additionally, a single statistic is not a reliable measurement of a product's performance. One could, for instance, find a very expensive system with exactly the same specifications as a much less expensive system. On paper, the two would appear identical. The difference in performance, however, would be significant.

A better approach, we feel, is to listen to the product. We strongly urge you to make your own comparisons. Bose systems will surpass your expectations.

 

In regards to the two speakers you have chosen to compare, both of these will be great as they are both water resistant. It is going to be down to personal preference. I would recommend going into a store for a demo of them. 

 

I hope this helps to clarify! If you have any other questions please let me know!

 

Kindest,
