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

Magical music machine, to delight everyone.
We bought these for our disabled foster child, who loves her music. Due to difficulties with her wheelchair, headrest, and not liking headphones on her head, these were a magical find. A couple of clicks to pair them up, and her eyes opened wide in delight as the music appeared from out of thin air. The added advantage for others is they don't intrude outside the users personal space, and the user can hear anyone talking to them. They fit all shapes and sizes with no discomfort to anyone from small children to very large adults. Battery life is good, with a USB charging point, and the black sleeve can be swapped to match outfits, as required.

I’m a realtor and live on the phone. I can listen to my music and seamlessly switch to answering the phone and hang up, boom right back to my music. I don’t have to do a thing. I use this while walking my dogs, working on my computer, and just doing housework. It’s wonderful to be aware of surroundings, be hands free AND listen to music with the BEST sound.

Recently I was driving our little old convertible with no radio, and thought I’d try this out. I can not believe how wonderful this sounds even over all the wind noise. Bike riders, rest assured, this is the product for you!!

Encapsulates your head!
My husband surprised me with the SoundWear speaker. He knows I dislike earbuds because I can’t hear what’s going on around me and because they make my ears waxy. Regular headphones are never small enough and slide off. I was sceptical at first, given the cost. When I finally got my speaker around my neck and turned on some tunes I just sat there laughing in shear glee and amazement. It was like my head was inside the music. Fully engulfed in high quality sound while being aware of my surroundings.
The speaker phone is impeccable. No one really knows the difference and unlike a phone, it always stays at the same distance from your mouth so the other person can hear you clearly at all times.
I feel safe going for walks or riding my bike with it because I can hear traffic around me.
Love all our Bose products!
Just bought my husband the Bose Alto audio sunglasses for his birthday. Can’t wait to see his face when he gets them!

Best Bose product made
I absolutely love my soundwear. I wear it all day long listening to music or talking on phone with it. And the best part is you can still hear the doorbell or conversations around you. I have trouble keeping the earbuds in my ears so this item fixes that problem. Bose does not do much advertising on this product which they should. My 2 sisters and I think they are the bomb!!!!

Sound quality is good
Though these are really comfortable wearing speakers, and the sound quality is really good.
My draw back on them is that you can make calls, talk, listen to music, all those things are great qualities. The issue is that everyone can hear your music, and your conversations nothing private about these sound wear. You won't be able to wear them on a airplane and expect to enjoy the movies, music etc, etc..
This I consider part broken technology. Sure you can get Bluetooth headphones but the way they advertise they made these soundwear act like you have private conversations and private music listening,you may as well carry a large speaker around with you because nothing about these soundwear are private share with the world.. Fix this problem and you'll have some top notch all in one speakers.

I have had two of these now and I can only listen for 4 to 5 hours on one charge. It's supposed to last 12 hours.

Awesome sound, comfortable to wear
I'm not sure what got me interested in this product, but I watched several YouTube videos and all were very positive. I listened to them using the Bose display at my local Navy Exchange and was awed at the sound quality.

Well, they're Bose, so you can expect great sound. But I like them for the following additional reasons:
--Very comfortable to wear; you don't even know they are on.
--You don't have to turn the volume up very loud to listen. This allows you to listen and not disturb others, while at the same time hear what's happening around you. (I wouldn't wear them in a public setting though.)
--Ease of use. They pair via Bluetooth very quickly and seamlessly on multiple devices at the same time. Just turn them on and your listening! Mine are paired with an iPad, iPhone and MacBook Air. There are no conflicts either; they pair with whatever device you are currently using.
--Long battery life. They also charge very quickly.

I live in a condo. The connection on these with any of my devices does not fade or break up anywhere in my unit.

While these may not be for everyone, I highly recommend you check these out at a Bose display near you. You'll be as impressed as I was.

Amazing product!
I received this product a while back as a gift and have used it nearly everyday since. The sound quality is incredible (just like most Bose products) and this thing is impervious! I have dropped it numerous times onto concrete, asphalt, etc without the cover on it and it still sounds as good as new. It has also survived several rainy days without its cover on and so far the water resistance is great! This product gives a unique listening experience, and after letting many people try it out I have found that the unique surround sound experience isn’t for everyone. A few people said that it almost gave them a headache, so I would suggest that before you buy this product you try it out at the nearest Bose store or Best Buy. Personally I have never experienced headaches after wearing it all day. The battery life is also incredible for this product, I can go days without charging it (though I would suggest charging it every night just so you never get caught without battery life). This product is also very comfortable with or without the cover on. During hot and sunny days it never heats up. It is easy to adjust and can be bent to extreme measures without any sign of breaking. Over all this product is incredible, I would definitely consider purchasing it if you are someone who wants to take music anywhere without disturbing other people or blocking out the world with headphones. Congratulations Bose for making another incredible sound product! If I could I’d give more than 5 stars!

I want to listen to music without being shunned away from the surrounding environment
Teodorico D on Apr 18, 2018
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.

Can everyone around you hear your music and calls?

  It's not as loud as you'd think but if someone is right next to you, yes.
