Bose specialize in audio equipment – namely speakers, noise-cancelling headphones, sound systems and radios. If you’re looking for a sound you can trust, Bose are a very good shout. Despite Bose having a wide selection of products, the one most suited to us is their live sound systems – more specifically, the Bose L1 Portable PA Systems. These are probably the most compact and easy-to-use PA systems known to humankind and, what’s more, they sound as slick as they look. The Bose L1 is perfect for singer-songwriters (probably those with deeper pockets, I’d imagine) who play lots of pub gigs, the mobile DJ who likes to blurt out ‘CAN I GET A REEE-WIND!?’ on occasion... or simply for those mumbling verbose types.
