Bose is a name that is associated with high-quality sound devices. They sell everything from headphones, speakers, and even sunglasses that can play music. The brand is a well-known name in the Nepalese consumer market. Recently, Bose has launched its Portable Home Speaker in Nepal. So, let’s check out the new Bose Portable Home Speaker including its specs, features, price, and availability in Nepal.
Bose Portable Home Speaker Overview
Bose Portable Home Speaker is part of the company’s portfolio of smart speakers. Though it’s a smart speaker and is meant to blend in with other stuff in your living room, it’s portable and you can carry it around wherever you go.
Build and Design
The Bose Portable Home Speaker comes in a cylindrical shape with a bucket-like handle towards the top end. The bottom of the speaker has a rubber base. It holds the speaker in its position when it is placed upright. The lower portion of the speaker is covered with a circular grill. There is another grill on the side that faces the sky when the speaker is in its standing position.
Controls and Pairing
For the initial setup, you need to download the Bose Connect app. The app will guide you through the entire process. You can use the app to set up the voice assistant, browse through your music, update the speaker’s software, and even pair the Portable Home Speaker with any other Bose smart speaker. In places without a Wi-Fi connection, you can pair the speaker to your smartphone via Bluetooth and listen to your favorite playlist.
Talking about controls, Bose has included a bunch of touch-sensitive buttons on the top surface. The buttons are enclosed within the top speaker grill. There are buttons for playing/pausing music, toggling volume levels, switching between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, turning the mic on/off. However, you can skip these all together and command your favorite voice assistant to do those instead.
The circular speaker grill on the lower portion of the speaker provides 360 sound. A transducer aims downward into an acoustic deflector to radiate sound in all directions. For better bass, there are three passive radiators that deepen the sound.
Battery and Durability
Bose claims that the battery on the Portable Home Speaker can last up to 12 hours. However, if you use the speaker at the maximum volume, that may not be the case. You can charge the device via its USB Type-C port. The battery isn’t user-replaceable so users have to rely on the charging cable in case the battery dies inside. Bose claims that the battery can last over six years of normal usage. The speaker also comes with an IPX4 rating against damage by water splashes.
