As we love listening to music outdoors, we were given the chance to review this Bose outdoor speaker. So here’s our product review of the Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System.
Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System – Performance
Judging outdoor speakers according to its performance is a key aspect in deciding whether to buy them or not. When you are thinking to buy one, it is of great importance to know if that outdoor speaker can deliver excellent sound quality at a very wide or large outdoor area. Of course, who would want an outdoor speaker that when used outdoors the sound cannot be heard or the sound quality is depressing?
Contrary to outdoor speakers that have poor sound performance is the Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System. This Bose outdoor speaker is pretty impressive in producing sound. Listening to your Spotify playlist while sitting at your patio’s couch or while having a pool party at your backyard would absolutely be a fun time. The sound it produces is really rich and loud given that you will play them outdoors.
We tested this Bose outdoor speaker at our backyard and we couldn’t agree more with Bose. The Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System sounds really clean, clear, rich, and powerful. It has full stereo performance, thanks to its two 2.5” full-range drivers and its 5.25” woofer. With these features, you can now enjoyably stream music wirelessly from your local music files, music streaming services (such as Spotify, Pandora, and Deezer), and Internet Radio right at your home.
To power up the Bose SoundTouch 251 Speakers System, an AC power cord comes with it. So you need to plug them in if you want this Bose outdoor speaker to function. This also means that it doesn’t come with a built-in rechargeable battery.
Bose 251 Outdoor Speakers System – Design
Aside from the outdoors speakers, the Bose Environmental Speakers 251 also comes with a SoundTouch SA-4 amplifier, SoundTouch wireless adapter (that helps in controlling the amplifier and the outdoor speakers via Wi-Fi), SoundTouch controller, mounting materials, USB cable, and a power cord.
For us, the design of this Bose outdoor speaker is pretty simple. We say simple but in a good way. The Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System is minimalistic with how it looks and we appreciate how Bose made it like this. The plain form of the speakers makes it adaptable to the view outdoors and that makes it really eye-catching.
As we mentioned that it comes with mounting materials, the Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System can be mounted on the walls of your home. You can attach it outside your patio or even at posts in your backyard. You don’t need to worry if it gets damaged with outdoor elements because Bose considered those risks. With that, this Bose outdoor speaker is designed to withstand the cold, heat, snow, rain, and other elements that are commonly exposed to this outdoor speaker. You don’t only get to enjoy great outdoor sound, now you also get to be worry-free.
The Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System comes in two color options, Black and White.
Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System – Connectivity
In terms of connectivity, you can mainly use this Bose outdoor speaker via your home’s Wi-Fi network.
With this feature, it allows you to wirelessly stream music anywhere at your house, be it indoors or outdoors. With this type of connection also, you get to stream music from your device’s local music files, online music streaming services, or even from your favorite Internet radio, all controlled at the palm of your hands.
To assist you in controlling the Bose SoundTouch 251 SE Outdoor Speaker System, the SoundTouch amplifier, SoundTouch wireless adapter, and the SoundTouch controller comes with it. These are tools to let you connect to your outdoor speakers wirelessly. The setup was also easy as we tried to use them. Connecting the outdoor speakers was smooth and we didn’t find any problem. Controlling the outdoor speakers was also a convenience, thanks to the help of the amplifier, wireless adapter, controller, and its dedicated app that can be downloaded from the app store.
