Bose SoundWear Overview

Rethink portable audio with the Bose SoundWear Companion Speaker. This lightweight wearable speaker rests gently around your neck and delivers the big sound that made Bose famous: soaring highs, lush mids, and deep bass. The SoundWear features built-in Bluetooth so you can connect to your smartphone or tablet and enjoy your favorite tunes from Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Google Play, and more. The Bose SoundWear also features a built-in microphone that lets you take calls and control the voice controls on your smartphone.

Product Information

Hands Free; Ears Free

Sure, you want music with you at all times. But you don’t always want to slap on headphones and shut out everything else around you. You don’t have to. The new SoundWear Companion speaker was designed for you. This wearable speaker offers the best of both worlds—convenience and connection—in a way that allows you to be present with your music as well as your surroundings. It rests comfortably on your shoulders, with sound that is full and clear to you—yet minimizes the sound for others. And with legendary waveguide technology at its core, that performance is easy to trust.

Great Battery Life

Plays up to 12 hours. A quick 15-minute charge gives you up to 3 hours.

Sweat and Weather Resistant

Don’t worry about a little rain or a lot of sun. This wearable can take it.

Vibrations for Incoming Calls

Haptic alerts are a discreet way to notify you of incoming calls.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Wireless Bluetooth pairing made easier with voice prompts.

Wearable Tech - With a Familiar Twist 

With some wearables, it’s fashion before function. Not in this case. Every part of this speaker is meticulously engineered for better sound. But even a groundbreaking product can benefit from a proven technology—like Bose's waveguide technology. So they used two 11" waveguides to pump out what other wearable speakers don’t—deep, rich sound.

Surrounded in Sound; Aware of Your Surroundings

Put it on. Walk around. Take a call or ask Siri a question. This speaker gives you freedom from your devices and keeps you closer to your surroundings at the same time.

A Long History of Innovation

It’s interesting, when you look back on it. Stereo speakers that reproduced more sound from the back of the speaker than the front.

Compact, single-speaker stereo systems that replaced stacks of equipment.

Noise cancelling headphones that changed just about everything.

These are just a few of the breakthroughs Bose introduced in their long history of innovation. Until you tried one of these, you likely couldn’t know how much of a difference it would make.

Swappable, Stretchable, Durable

The speaker isn’t the only thing Bose obsessed over. The custom designed covers are acoustically transparent, so nothing gets in the way of the sound. Static free so your hair and clothing don’t cling to it. And four-way stretchable so it fits the speaker snugly. Your speaker includes a Black cover.

Bose Connect App

Control your SoundWear speaker’s Bluetooth connections and manage bass adjustments easily through the Bose Connect app. The app also provides product tips and lets you personalize your settings, so you can make them

Excellent listing experience!
We have had our Soundwear speaker for 6 weeks. I don’t know why these were not developed before now. They truly are the best sound reproduction we have experienced with Bose

Once again Bose goes above and beyond the competition with ease. Only my wife stunts my purchase growth of Bose products as she says I don't need whatever it is I'm trying to buy, but she surprised me with this one as she knows I really wanted it so thankful for this awesome self centered listening experience while walking about in public or indoors. My music doesn't disturb the public and the public doesn't disturb my music.

Technology and music in a phenomenal product!
I auditioned Bose Soundwear Companion at a store display a few months ago and I was intrigued by it, but hadn't made the commitment to purchase. This is a product that must be used to see the great benefits of daily use. I can now have music in many places where I couldn't and having a headphone would block noise in areas that I would benefit from being aware of my environment. Instead of tuning out, I can tune in. The soundwear is a portable stereo system that doesn't require any special effort to use and its a product I want to use as often as possible. The sound quality is fantastic for a wearable product and I can listen at lower volumes. The telephone audio is clear making the soundwear one of the absolute best products for bluetooth cell phone communications. Having it the product and using it, now I wonder why I didn't get it upon the first tryout.

As a music lover and an active person that works in a warehouse, this is easily the best purchase I have ever made. Never have I been able to listen to my music at work like I can with the soundwear. The only drawback I have was taking the cover off. I ended up tearing the silicone on accident while taking it off to wash.

Looking for a reason to get my 3oo back...
I originally saw these on a YouTube review and immediately went to a few websites to see who had the best deal for these speakers, because who are we kidding 3oo for speakers is a lot. I was so surprised to receive my purchase from Bose much faster than they estimated like 4 days sooner. Over the next two days while I sat and waited I reviewed more ratings and found myself getting more nervous about my purchase thinking I made a mistake. What if they are too loud for my office cubicle job, or during conference room meetings. Plus for 3oo I was looking for any reason or flaw to return them. Once they arrived I scrambled to open the box and connected them to the first bluetooth device in my home I could find. Luckily I happen to have 2 friends over at the same time they arrived. So I was able to get their first impressions too. Let me just start by saying, these are the most fun to wear, to let people try on and see their first time reactions. This device was so amazing my first words I said to my friends was "oh no, I'm not getting my 3oo back, I need these in my life". The next day at work I wore them during my whole 10 hour day and playing music for probably 5 hours straight and by end of day only reached 60%. I had almost 20-30 people in my department try them on and 1 of which went online and purchased her own instantly. I can honestly say I have no clue what the heck these 1 star reviews are about on Amazon. It totally plays quiet enough that people standing right next to you can't hear. Obviously that means your not going to have the volume full blast but that's common sense. Anyways I'm on day 4 of my purchase now and have not regretted for one moment. Oh and for what it's worth I use a Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy TabA, all of which have synced perfectly.

Not being in on or close to the ear the bass is weak and I returned it as I have many other Bose products but this just doesn’t come out as one I’d recommend

Losing the passion
I recently bought a new Galaxy note 9 and the problem I'm having is that soundwear will not control phones media or music at times unless I start media with device first. I've exchanged my speaker and phone thinking they were defected yet problem still occurs. Explain please.

A Cyclist New Best Friend
Cycling can be a little boring since the law does not allow you to put anything in your ears and playing music through your phone isn't the best quality and can drain your battery. Now, I am able to listen to quality stereo sound while cycling to music that motivates me. I can also answer calls with crystal clear quality. But the best part is that I am aware of my surroundings without breaking the law or putting my safety at risk. I also enjoy longer rides since the battery lasts up to 12 hours. With my new speaker, I am ready and looking forward to my 7 day AIDS Cycle from San Francisco to Los Angeles in June, 2019 . My only dislike is that I wish it had a strap in case I fall off my bike. :)

No Connection
I bought this for my father because he is hard of hearing. I was hoping we could watch movies together and he would not have to wear headphones. Unfortunately they would not connect to my amplifier even though it has Bluetooth. They connected to my tablet immediately and were great for using with the tablet. Unfortunately that's not how I wanted to use them and returned them.

Great all rounder
As a collector of many gadgets and toys, they all fit a purpose somewhat from the Homepod, the wireless gaming headphones and to the QC35 to name a few. This SoundWear is absolutely awesome.

I have it connected to my MacBook and iPad Pro for YouTube, Netflix and other streamed media. I have it also connected to each of the gaming consoles PS4 Pro, Xbox One and the Switch for great audio playback.

The utility is awesome though may take awhile to get used to in finding that sweet spot on your shoulders. It's not too bad for yoga too!

Definitely worth giving a shot of the demo.

My husband is an audiophile, techie and Bose aficionado. Purchasing this as a birthday present and hoping it works for him. He usually wears headphones to listen to lectures and this may provide him more flexibility and comfort.
