So you’ve settled that you want a Bose speaker? That’s an excellent choice! Bose provides rich and balanced life-like sound that I personally enjoy everyday all day at home and office. Two of the top Bose models are the Bose SoundDock and Bose SoundLink speakers, and we’re here to highlight the difference between them and help you get the best one for yourself.

Bose SoundDock Speakers:

Bose SoundDock II

Like its name suggests, the SoundDock is an iPhone/iPod dock speaker that you can dock your phone or iPod on to play music. The SoundDock charges your phone as you dock it, too, so you don’t run out of charge. The speaker also has an auxiliary input so you can connect your TV, computer, DVD or any other music device to it.

There are two main SoundDock models: SoundDock II which requires that it remains connected to an outlet for it to work, and the SoundDock II Portable, which features a rechargeable battery and allows you to play music easily on the go.

Comparison Between SoundDock II and SoundDock II Portable:

Bose SoundLink Speakers:

Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II

The Bose SoundLink is a wireless Bluetooth speaker that allows you to connect it to any Bluetooth enabled device, may that be your phone, your tablet or computer. It’s also portable, featuring a rechargeable battery that plays up to 8 hours before needing to recharge again. The SoundLink gives you the same deep and rich sound experience the SoundDock will give you, but with the SoundLink, you can enjoy it on the go.

The SoundLink is available in different models, SoundLink Mobile Speaker, SoundLink Mini and SoundLink Air Digital Music System, which we compare below:
