  • Bose has released the SoundLink Flex, the latest addition to its portable line of speakers.
  • The Flex floats and has an IP67 rating, making it a solid adventure speaker.
  • The SoundLink Flex is available now and retails for $149.

Household audio brand Bose released a new portable speaker, the SoundLink Flex. This compact Bluetooth speaker features a soft-touch rubberized exterior with an IP67 dust- and water-resistant build. Bose ensures that the Flex is meant to go anywhere you go. The company even includes a tear-resistant loop, so you can hang it from a bag or carabiner.

Bose claims that it used the biggest driver the SoundLink Flex could fit, which should deliver powerful bass while retaining clear sound. It uses dual-passive radiators, something we’ve seen from the JBL Flip series, to amplify the vibrations. Bose knows that this speaker will find itself in all sorts of positions, and uses Bose PositionIQ to ensure optimal audio performance. This works whether the Bose SoundLink Flex is upright, hanging from your bag, or resting on your nightstand.
