Bose has a new speaker on the market. A brand that we already know about its latest headphones and that is preparing to renew an iconic speaker presents a new model of portable speaker, wireless and resistant to water like the Bose SoundLink Flex.
The SoundLink Flex is a compact speaker, almost 8 inches long. With a design that may be reminiscent of those old transistors that can still be seen on the street, Bose has achieved some shapes with a certain retro air in which a grille occupies almost the entire front.
Would you dare to throw it in the water? Fleet
The elongated body of the SoundLink Flex is dominated by a grille on the front and a back finished in silicone in order to resist shocks and avoid scratches when placing it on all types of surfaces.
A speaker that is also IP67 certified, which means that it is resistant to water, dust and dirt. It’s more, Bose claims that if dropped into water, the SoundLink Flex will float… a test that you have to have the courage to carry out.
Another feature of its finish is that according to Bose, the SoundLink Flex is resistant to UV light and corrosion. The aim is to avoid wear from outdoor use that can cause the exterior to deteriorate and the finish to flake.

Of the internal components there are not many details, but the brand announces that it integrates passive double opposition radiators. What’s more features Bose digital signal processing technology to avoid distortion in the sound.

Plus, with the SoundLink Flex you can create a stereo audio system when pairing a second Bose speaker via Bluetooth, as well as connecting it to other Bose speakers and soundbars as part of a home audio system.
