What kind of audio sources can I use with the SoundLink® Colour Bluetooth® speaker?
The speaker is designed specifically for use with today’s most popular Bluetooth® devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. In addition, it includes an auxiliary input for a wired connection to an MP3 player or similar portable player.
How do I control the speaker?
Power and volume controls are located on the speaker itself. Otherwise, use your smartphone or other paired device to select a playlist, streaming audio source, etc. No remote control necessary.
What purpose do the voice prompts on the SoundLink® Colour speaker serve? Are they available in multiple languages?
The voice prompts guide you through the Bluetooth® pairing and connection process, so you understand how it works. They also identify the connected devices by name, making it simpler when you’re using more than one source device.
The voice prompts are available in multiple languages with additional languages under development. New languages can be added to your speaker via software update. Check the Bose website for the latest list of languages.
Is it possible to disable the voice prompts?
Yes. Voice prompts can be disabled by simultaneously pressing the Volume up (+) and Volume down (-) buttons. We recommend leaving the prompts enabled because of the added functionality they provide.
What is the wireless range of the SoundLink® Colour speaker?
The speaker is capable of stable operation at up to 9 m. Performance can be affected by walls and construction materials, or by interference from Wi-Fi or other wireless devices.
How do I check battery life? What is the playing/charging time of the battery?
To check the speaker’s battery life, press and hold the power button. The battery indicator light (battery icon near the power button) will come on. The light is green for a full charge and amber for medium charge. When battery life gets low, the speaker’s voice prompt will announce once “battery low, please charge now” and the light will blink red.
Battery performance varies depending on the content and the volume at which it’s played. In typical usage, a fully charged battery lasts up to eight hours.
The battery will fully charge with the included wall charger in three hours. You can also charge the speaker battery from nearly any USB power source using the included cable. This method may take longer than the wall charger.
If I’m using my smartphone with the SoundLink® Colour speaker, will phone calls play through the speaker?
No. A phone call interrupts your audio source and plays through your phone only. When the call ends, your music automatically resumes through the SoundLink® Colour speaker.
Can I stream music (Spotify etc.) from my computer to the SoundLink® Colour speaker?
Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth® and is within 9 metres of the speaker.
Does the SoundLink® Colour speaker support Wi-Fi® or WiDi?
No. The wireless connection for this speaker is Bluetooth® only. If you’re looking for speakers that connect via Wi-Fi, have a look at our SoundTouch™ Wi-Fi music systems.
Can the SoundLink® Colour speaker be used to provide audio for video, such as for watching a movie on a tablet?
Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—can be influenced by Bluetooth® implementation on the viewing device. You will get the best performance by keeping the SoundLink® Colour speaker and the device in close proximity, minimising wireless interference. Use of Wi-Fi in the area may also affect performance.
