It simply plays audio really well and that's all.

At $299, the SoundLink III is a significant investment for those who want to fill a small room or patio with clear sound, but it isn't any pricier than competing models from Jawbone and Braven. Bose manages to pack plenty of sonic punch and battery life into a slim package, improving significantly on the previous model.
Furthermore, the SoundLink III offers better clarity and volume than competitors like Jawbone's Big Jambox and Braven's 850 HD. The lack of extras like speakerphone and onboard playback controls comes as a surprise at this price. But if you can live without those ame... Full review
The Bose SoundLink 3 is indeed better than the speaker that preceded it in nearly every way. It sounds better, is louder, and has drastically improved battery life. Even in areas where it doesn’t surpass earlier Bose speakers, it certainly matches them evenly. Especially as far as competitors to Bose are concerned, this is now the speaker to beat.
With that said, the price of $299 may be a bit high for certain people, especially when the older SoundLink 2 and SoundLink Mini still offer high-quality sound at a lower price point (roughly $269 and $199 respectively). If you&rsquo... Full review
The Soundlink Bluetooth III’s design looks more sleek than what’s come before it and measures at about 5 x 10 x 2 inches, but its two-tone gray appearance is just boring. Bose tries to spice things up with $35 accessory covers. Those add-ons add some color to an otherwise bland design, but inspire no confidence in protecting the speaker from water or unfortunate tumbles. They seem to be more of afterthought than inspired an design.
Regarding design and functionality, Bose is stubbornly stuck in the past, trending in the opposite direction than brands like Jawbone and Ult... Full review
The Soundlink Mini gets really loud and easily fills a normal room with deep, clean music and is plenty loud for a small group of people to listen to outside on a bike, at a park, or on the beach. The Soundlink III goes one step further, filling a large room and possibly annoying the neighbors in the process.
This is the best-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker I’ve heard but it isn’t appreciably better than the $100 cheaper Soundlink Mini and it is significantly less portable. Moreover, Bose didn’t fix any of the gripes I had with the Soundlink Mini.
The SoundLink III is the latest iteration of Bose's Bluetooth speaker, replacing the SoundLink II as its $299.95 (direct) wireless model. It doesn't look quite as stylish as the SoundLink II, but it puts out an accurate, slightly warmer sound that will appeal to casual listeners even more (but might turn off audiophile purists compared with the previous model).
The Bose SoundLink III is a worthy follow-up to the Editors' Choice SoundLink II, offering slightly bigger, slightly warmer sound that presents plenty of detail and texture across the spectrum. If you want to spend a lit... Full review
We find SoundLink III to be a more attractive speaker than its predecessors. It maintains the same general look and shape, but everything has been refined, making it more elegant.
The volume level is quite acceptable, as the unit is more than able to fill a small room, and could even be suitable for outdoor use. It ramps up rather slowly, but the top level is comparable to that of the Braven speaker, and there’s relatively low distortion.
SoundLink III does sound and look better than the first two models, although it loses the built-in cover. For those willing to spend... Full review
The competition in the portable Bluetooth speaker arena is much stiffer these days and the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III isn't as big of a standout as it was when the first version launched in 2011. It also isn't as feature-rich as some models. Still, its sound and battery life have improved (the battery life is a bigger jump than the sound), and its build quality remains top notch.
We could sit here and argue which competing models sound as good (or almost as good) for less money. However, at the end of the day, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III is a high-quality prod... Full review
