Audio quality is ensured by a 60mm full-range loudspeaker, plus two face-to-face passive radiators that enhance the impact of low frequencies. A DSP is present to, via adequate digital processing of the signal, reduce distortion.

An on-board microphone allows the Bose SoundLink Flex to be used hands-free for calls.
