What kind of audio sources can I use with the SoundLink Revolve speakers?
The audio connection options for the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ are Bluetooth® and 3.5 mm stereo audio cable. NFC can also help facilitate Bluetooth® pairing.
Can two SoundLink Revolve speakers be wirelessly linked together in Party Mode?
Yes, using the Bose Connect app, you can enable Party Mode from any of the following Bose Bluetooth speakers: SoundLink Revolve and SoundLink Revolve+.
Do SoundLink® Revolve speakers support Wi-Fi® or WiDi®?
No. The speakers’ wireless connection is Bluetooth® only.
What is the wireless range of SoundLink Revolve speakers?
The speakers have a wireless range up to 9 m (30 ft). Performance can be affected by obstacles such as walls, interference from Wi-Fi or other wireless devices.
How many devices can pair with SoundLink Revolve speakers?
SoundLink Revolve speakers keep track of the last eight devices that were paired and connected to them, dropping the least recently used device when a new one is paired.
Can I stream music (Spotify, Deezer etc.) from my computer to the speaker?
Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth® and is within 9 metres of the speaker.
What happens when my phone is streaming music and a call comes in?
When a call comes in, the music will pause and the call will ring through the speaker. You can answer the call by pressing the multi-function button and talk into the speaker itself to conduct your phone call. When you end your call, music playback resumes
What is the battery performance of the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+
In typical usage, the SoundLink Revolve battery lasts up to 12 hours and the SoundLink
Revolve+ lasts up to 16 hours. Battery performance can vary with the content played and volume
at which it is played.
How long does it take to charge the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ Bluetooth® speakers’ battery?
While not playing music, much of the SoundLink Revolve speakers’ battery charge can be recovered in approximately four hours when using a USB power source. Charging from
alternative USB power sources or when playing music may take longer.
What purpose do the voice prompts on the speaker serve?
They provide guidance during the Bluetooth® pairing and connection process. They also identify the connected source devices by text to speech, simplifying usage with more than one source device.
Can the voice prompts be disabled?
Yes. Simply press the “+” (volume up) and “–” (volume down) buttons simultaneously.
Can the SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ Bluetooth® speakers be used toprovide audio for video, such as watching a movie on a tablet?
Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—may be compromised due to various signal processing technologies implemented in the speakers. This is true especially when using Bluetooth® as your input. For better synchronisation and lower latency, we recommend you use the Auxiliary or USB Audio inputs. For the best experience, please update your speaker’s software.
What does the IPX4 rating mean for the water resistant SoundLink Revolve speakers?
The IPX4 rating classifies the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects (including body parts like hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact and water in electrical enclosures. For SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+, we’ve stretched beyond the required testing parameters, to ensure that your speaker will long outlast an accidental showering of water. This means that you can use SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ in more places and not worry if it gets wet (for example, splashes at the pool, getting caught in the rain, washing your car, splashes in the kitchen, etc.). Just don’t submerge it.
