The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Bose Portable Speaker Suggestions

Suggestions Needed.

I have an older friend who I'm dragging into new tech, kicking and screaming. 

He loves the Bose sound and wants a Portable Speaker he can try using with Bluetooth and plug an audio device into. He doesn't use a smartphone and ABSOLUTELY refuses to use any smart tech that uses voice controls.  He wants to bring it to his Garage and/or workshop easily. Does Bose make something like this? He's very picky about sound quality. Even though he has 65 yr old ears with some hearing loss he wants the quality he had at 16. 

Thanks for the suggestions. 





Re: Bose Portable Speaker Suggestions

Hey Kassan12047@, 


Thanks for reaching out! I do believe that we will be able to help you and your friend! 


We do have a great range of portable speakers which are battery-operated, support Bluetooth and Aux input. I have included the LINK HERE to the range. The Portable Home Speaker would likely not be suitable for your friend as it is a WiFi speaker with a voice assistant. Based on the information you have provided, I would recommend either the SoundLink Mini II or the SoundLink Color II for ease of transport. 


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out again!
