Bose Unveils New Portable Speaker with AirPlay 2 Support
THE Bose, a well-known American audio equipment manufacturer, unveiled this week its new model of portable speakers compatible with Apple's wireless connection protocol, the AirPlay 2.
The new Home speaker Bose's Bluetooth interface is designed to be compact and has a ?similar? design to the HomePod with a cylindrical body; however, the manufacturer's novelty is divided at the bottom by the speaker network and at the top by the aluminum body.
The buttons on the top of the laptop allow manual control of power, volume and playback; they also offer a unique feature to disable the microphone from speaker, so you can be sure that it is not being recorded all the time.
Inside, the Home Speaker has three passive radiators, one driver high-pitched, and what Bose says is a baffle to deliver a "clear, realistic sound in all directions."
The speaker also has a wing which allows you to move it from place to place safely. In it there is a rechargeable battery capable of up to 12 hours of playback and, although not water resistant (IPX4), the new speaker Bose will not have problems with splashing or small spills.
As for connectivity, the speaker is compatible with major protocols and virtual assistants, including Apple's AirPlay 2; Google Assistant and Alexa from Amazon. When it comes to connecting to iOS, through AirPlay 2 you can play music from any device and pair it with other speakers on your own iPhone from the Bose Music app.
The Home Speaker costs $ 350, the same amount Apple used to charge for HomePod, before reducing the price of the smart speaker to $ 300 a few months ago. According to Bose, the new model will be delivered from September 19.
