Today Bose unveiled the SoundLink III, a pint-sized speaker the company says is its best-performing Bluetooth model yet. Designed to be used primarily while you're out and about, the $300 portable speaker comes packing a longer-life 14-hour battery than its predecessor, as well as some sound improvements under the hood.

Inside the three-pound speaker you'll find four neodymium transducers and dual-opposing passive radiators, a combination that makes it louder than previous models, while still maintaining "balanced and natural" sound. Music is streamed from your favorite mobile device to the SoundLink III using Bluetooth A2DP, and the speaker remembers the last six devices to connect, so you don't have to worry about constantly pairing. Five optional $35 cases keep it protected during your travels. Hit the source link for more details.
