This Just Might Be the Best Wearable Speaker Money Can Buy

The wireless Bose SoundWear Companion is the cream of the crop.

Headphones are great when you want to drown out the world and immerse yourself in an album, podcast, or conversation. And thanks to advancements in noise cancellation and wireless technology, when it comes to headphones there are excellent options available at just about every price point. But what do you do when you need the mobility of headphones without cutting yourself off from the world? When you want to be surrounded by sound but still be aware of your surroundings?

Bose SoundWear Companion Wearable Speaker

You could go with a traditional portable speaker, many of which offer incredible sound. That said, most portable speakers still don’t offer as much mobility as headphones or earbuds. Carrying them around with you as you move from room to room is a total pain. And if you’re trying to do anything outside the house you can pretty much forget it.

So if you really want to bring your music with you everywhere you go without cutting yourself off from the world, you need a wearable speaker. And when it comes to wearable speakers, there’s the Bose SoundWear Companion, and then there’s everything else.

The Bose SoundWear Companion Wearable Speaker is a Bluetooth speaker that wraps around your neck and rests comfortably on your shoulders. The neckband is made of bend-and-stay steel wire and medical-grade silicone, which produces just the right amount of torsion to keep it form-fitted to your shoulders all day long. Once you get it adjusted, you’ll hardly know it’s there.

As for sound quality, the Bose SoundWear features two 11-inch versions of Bose’s legendary waveguide speakers. They produce a deep, rich sound you simply won’t find in any other wearable speaker—a sound that’s crystal clear to you while minimally impacting those around you.

The SoundWear has other bells and whistles, too. It plays up to 12 hours on a full charge and up to two hours on a 15 minute quick-charge. It’s both sweat and weather resistant, and it has haptic alerts to notify you of incoming calls. There’s also an app that lets you create custom settings and easily pair and switch between multiple devices.

Best of all, Bose will let you try it out risk-free for 30 days. At the end of that period, if you’re not completely satisfied, you can send them back, free of charge, for a full refund.

So if you’re looking for ultimate mobility and unreal sound quality, you’ve got to give SoundWear a try.
