The Bose SoundLink Flex Wireless Bluetooth Speaker was launched on Thursday, October 14. The new wireless speaker is the latest in the American company’s range, and one of its smaller and more affordable wireless options that focus on outdoor and rugged use. The new wireless speaker has a portable, lightweight design that’s meant for the outdoors, with its IP67 build allowing plenty of exposure to dirt and water. The Bose SoundLink Flex Wireless Speaker has a long battery life per charge and can be paired with other Bose speakers.

The Bose SoundLink Flex is priced at $149 (approximately Rs 11,200). Although available now and shipping in the US, no word on further global availability, including India.

The Bose SoundLink Flex is a portable Bluetooth speaker that sits alongside the rest of the SoundLink range, which also includes the Bose SoundLink Mini 2 and Bose SoundLink Color 2. The Flex’s position is different, in that it’s pitched as an outdoors-friendly wireless. The speaker was to be used in settings that could expose the device to water and dust. The IP67 dust and water resistance rating promises to ensure the speaker will stay safe even with considerable exposure, and can be safely washed under a tap for cleaning.

For charging, the Bose SoundLink Flex has a USB Type-C port and an included cable in the box. The speaker weighs around 590 grams and has a soft-touch silicone exterior with a steel grille covering the speaker drivers. Battery life is claimed to be around 12 hours per charge and the speaker is said to be fully charged in about 4 hours when using the included cable. It’s also possible to link it wirelessly to other Bose speakers for stereo pairing and wireless daisy-chaining.

The Bose SoundLink Flex uses Bluetooth v4.2 for connectivity and has a built-in microphone system for voice calls, including voice calls and the ability to communicate with the voice assistant on your smartphone via a Bluetooth connection. There are controls for power, volume, and Bluetooth on the speaker itself, and the SoundLink Flex can also be customized and controlled using the Bose Connect app.
