Re: SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve Plus Firmware Update - 3.1.1 - February 16th
I really just logged in here to share my negative view on actually most of updates that Bose provided for Revolve+. Out of the box over 2 years ago this speaker was unrivalled compared to everything else in the shop, just crashed these JBLs and others in its price range, especially in terms of bass. That was enough to justify the difference in the price - but not after several updates (the one with party mode especially), each downgrading it that now friends' speakers are preferred over my R+ that cost me twice as theirs. It just looks like slow process of downgrading old model to introduce a new one, almost unchanged and probably sounding like old R+ firm new. Like it should sound still up to this day. I'm just highly disappointed by the fact I knew I was buying a bit overpriced product, but hoping it would remain competitive for years unless competitors can come up to it... but that was not required.
Some will say that 1 customer lost is nothing - great, but just wanted to let you know what's Bose policy on products getting older, at least in this case. And if any moderator will suggest that no sound improvements should be introduced in any update then why not give people possibility to backup old firmware? 🙂
Also, needless to say I guess, that was my last product from Bose so far. I can pay premium, but not get benefits of that taken away.
