Customer Reviews for Bose SoundWear Companion Wearable Ear-Free Speaker (Black)
I love to listen to music loud. I find that I do not need to turn this up as loud as I normally do with earbuds because it hangs around my neck. I get all the sound I want!
When I am out walking and excersizing I like this better as I can still "hear" the other people and vehicles coming up behind me yet I am still in my own world.
The battery life on this is incredible and the fact that I can buy a skin to the change the color on the soundwear speaker means I will never tire of it ( as if) and be able to color co ordinate it if the mood or whim strikes me!
I wanted to like this. I did. And I do. But I didn't want to love this....and I do!!
Bose hit another one out of the park!
If there is a CON to this it is that I wear this SO much during work outs and yard work that I have perspired on it and I wonder how to get the perspiration out of the cover and if it will eventually hurt the unit itself.
Bose says a little sweat or a lot of sun are ok on this little unit. I want to share it with my friends and family, but will need to purchase that separate cover first before I do just because. Then again, I may never let it out of my hands again!!
No bother! I still won't be without this amazing unit!!
I was impressed by the quality, but unfortunately doesn't have a good purpose. It's great to use near people you're okay with being highly aware you're listening to music. It's not a private or very discreet listening device - in fact, it's disruptive.
It's intended to bridge the gap between listening to great music near your ears without shutting out the rest of the world, which was its intended purpose and it was executed well. I thought that it'd also be nearly inaudible to those nearby while pumping a beam of sound waves only your ears could hear, but that's not the case.
Long story short, this does its job of keeping outside ambience listenable, however it does not keep your music private.
This doesn't mean I wouldn't buy this if I could though. I just can't use this the way I had hoped - on a bus full of people without being completely isolated from the world.
QC30 are my daily headphones that I love, but Soundwear speaker is something that I can listen to music and safely walk my dogs and be aware of my surroundings. Now we need a hard travel case for it :-)
Everybody at Bose should be proud of what they do for us. Keep up the good job Bose!
They are great to listen to music (Pandora) while doing other pc work and monitoring for incoming calls. The sound quality is great and your voice over the phone is also high quality, so nice for business calls when working at your desk
The only item I would fault is the placement of the control buttons. Being placed on the outside edge of the Soundware makes keyboard 'strokes' like pushing two buttons at once (mute a phone call) very difficult. If the buttons were on the inside edge of the Soundware it would be so much easier. Not a deal breaker however.
But another great BOSE product either way!
Man I tell ya, Bose out did themselves on this one!
I would be remiss if I didn’t add that I own 901’s down to 201’s, computer speakers, Wave Radio’s etc, and this is by far my (so far) my Favorite item from Bose!!!
Hey look, buy the system, with the return policy of Bose it’s simple to return. What do you have to lose?
Came extremely well packaged however every product we have ever received from Bose came extremely well packaged. First impression is solid, well built, and interesting.
I Touched the ON button and the system voice announced a 50% battery. Without touching any other buttons, to my knowledge, a voice announced, "connected to Dave's iPhone". I use my iPhone for music in our vehicle, my iPhone was still connected to a music service and the SoundWear picked up the music and began playing music with incredible deep rich sound.
I have the QuietControl 30 headphones, I assumed the controls were similar so I used the SoundWear controls in the same manner and the system worked flawlessly.
I’ve enjoyed using the SoundWear Companion for the last week. You get a long play time before having to recharge the unit.
Simple, easy to use, and stylish.
Beautiful deep rich sound.
Listen to music or talk on the phone while remaining connected to the sounds in your surrounding environment.
Light default in sound to notify you when you receive a message or email.
Lightweight, you won't know you're wearing the SoundWear Companion.
Solid quality construction.
Simple to adjust to your own personal comfort.
You can form the SoundWear to your shoulders or set it down on a solid surface and listen to your music.
Provides a very noticeable vibration when receiving a phone call.
Long lasting power so you can enjoy even more of your favorite music.
Depending on your listening volume people around you will be able to listen to your music or phone calls etc.
