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

I have owned my soundwear speakers for a year now. I can use them for 3 days at 8 hrs a day before I have to charge them again. They are the perfect solution to being able to carry on a full conversation without someone getting upset that I couldn't hear them due to headphones/earbuds blocking my hearing. I even had to buy my husband a pair of his own.

I bought it a little over a month ago. The first few minutes I was not sure, but after a few more minutes, I became comfortable with it and them became a great fan. It does everything I needed for around the house and car. It is the greatest addition for making and receiving phone calls. Excellent for watching TV and videos. Connects to my devices easily and supports multiple devices. Best part is while driving it makes phone conversations amazing. Sound quality is incredible, exceeded all my expectations. Extremely pleased with this purchase. Did not believe I could think more highly of Bose, but I was wrong, I have several Bose products and look forward to adding more products in the future.

Wonderfully rich & comfy!!!
My husband surprised me with these yesterday. He knows I love listening to the Bible at night while he's reading and he didn't want me struggling with wired headphones anymore. He also is big on my safety and wants me aware of my surroundings when I'm out & about. The Soundwear is wonderfully rich!! I've used them all day - in the car talking on the phone, walking around the house talking on the phone, listening to music and watching movies. Comfortable to wear, rich sound quality, and still pretty private. Best surprise in ages, hands down!!!

As expected but no connections
I have a month with it. I am glad to use it, no more expectation than it fills the gap between speakers and headphones, and it does as good as Bose can do it. The sound is around your head in a pleasant way. The people around me can heard around 20% of the sound that I heard. This is good in off to avoid be obtrusive. The quality of the music is good but a little lean. I am happy. The other side of the coin is this, outside the iPad and phone, there is no way to connect it to my music equipment: record player or CD collection, or the TV. I wish to connect it to TV to avoid the same problems of sound that I have with music with others.

Freedom sound everywhere
I bought these set of speakers awhile back and the only other thing I have had so far was earphones and earplug speakers. With wires. This is a new deal. No cables or cutting out the sound around us. I use these always when hiking. Perfect as listening to all sounds of nature blend on low volume in some nice music. Truest a experience enhancer.

Decent speaker but HORRIBLE for calls
I've owned this product for about 6 months now. This is the second one that I've tested. The first one I returned because I thought the issue was specific to the item purchased and not the SoundWear Companion line. As a speaker, it does its job. I wouldn't say that the quality is amazing, but overall, it does what its advertised to do. I purchased this because I wanted to be able to talk over Bluetooth without having something in or over my ears while still having free hands. Most of the time, the person I am speaking with on the other end, complains about the sound quality from my end. They say that I sound like a robot. So I usually end up turning off the SoundWear to carry on my conversations. If you want a set a speakers to follow you around the house as you listen to music, get this. If you want to use it primarily to carry on conversations, keep searching. To be fair, I haven't seen any other product that can do this without any issues. The phone that I have it paired with most of the time is a Samsung S10.

Excellent sound
I bought these last month. The design caught my eye among the quality. Once I opened and listened I was hooked. You will be thrilled to listen to your favorite music or podcasts through these.

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?
Howard L on Jul 1, 2019
  It's not as loud as you'd think but if someone is right next to you, yes.
