Bose portable home speaker battery life is awful + audio is problematic
Hi there, recently i purchased a a portable home speaker. As a owner of a revolve + for two years i felt an upgrade was needed plus the idea of connecting both via simplesync was appealing as my revolve+ is working well still after many drops.
Intially testing the speaker at home for a few minutes he seemed fine. The day after i used it to a full extent.
I noticed the battery doesnt hold long so i did some checking.
At 80% volume. Battery holds 1.5-2 hours which is absolutely ridiculous. Tried 100% volume and it ran out of juice in an hour and 5 minutes!
While i know the rated 12 hours is not supposed to be while running full volume so
I tried 50% volume and it held 5.5 hours.
Absolutely disappointed. Especially since my revolve holds full volume for 4 hours and this speaker is supposed to be better.
More over that, i noticed the revolve + is louder than my new portable home speaker
First i i didnt believe my ears. Testing few times i i noticed that while using simplesync indeed the revolve plus is louder and while using them apart in most cases the revolve + is louder (only case it wasn't louder is when i listened to a very treble based song).
Also the sound sounds muddy and very poor. Bass is indeed better than the revolve+ but this sounds really wrong.. especially in high volumes
Warranty is intact as this was bought 2 weeks ago.
Talked to the local bose store in israel
They doubted my complaints and said they want to take it to the lab and i may be qualified to have a return. Which is obscured.
Proud owner of the wireless soundsport , when i had a problem with them a year ago(rubber peeling and battery discharged fast) i went to the local store and they said i wasn't qualified for a return. Only after posting here about the situation and applying to bose global email they gave up and gave me a replacement.
Im hoping this wont happen again. And hoping i just got a damaged product from the factory and replacement if needed will go smoothly unlike last time.
Mabye there is a way to fix it and the product is not damaged.. would love to try troubleshooting. Tried resetting the speaker. Didn't work.
Thanks in advance.
