Crutchfield: Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker
Bose® knows sound. So it's not surprising that the compact Bose® SoundLink® Micro Bluetooth speaker can produce a big sound that's clear and clean. This portable speaker not only has an "outdoor voice," it's got the build to match. The SoundLink® Micro's soft, silicone enclosure makes it waterproof, shock-resistant, and sand- and dust-proof. And its thick silicone strap is also tear-resistant.
Use the SoundLink® Micro's built-in microphone for hands-free conversations with your paired smartphone. The speaker also lets you access your Siri® or Google Assistant™ voice controllers to use your smartphone hands-free. Voice prompts guide you through the pairing process, making it super easy.
With the free Bose® Connect app you can do even more. You can pair two SoundLink® Micros together for spacious stereo sound. Or select Party Mode to have both plays simultaneously, doubling the volume. The app can also control other Bose® SoundLink® products, so you can operate them all from your phone.

Average Customer Review(s):
This is my 5th Bose product purchase and again they seem to amaze me every time. This speaker is plenty loud and has good quality audio. The lows aren't as rich as some of those larger speakers but no worries as I was looking for a speaker to be able to take with me anywhere in any conditions and this hits the mark. The sound is exactly what I was expecting. I will be purchasing additional speakers for my children to use.
Pros: Compact Loud Easy to use and pair Waterproof Extremely versatile
Cons: Only one con and that is that the lows aren't as rich as other larger speakers but that was to be expected.
Sound is OK being a Bose... However it does not stand on its own, it has an awkward strap on the back that you have to find a place to hang on???
I expected great quality sound because it was Bose and I wasn't disappointed. I picked this size and style to have nice tunes at the pool and the beach. The surprise, was the kick butt power of this little speaker. I recommend.
Pros: Great quality sound, fills up any size room with sound.
Cons: Bose products are on the pricey side. I wouldn't trust the strap to the outside of a backpack like they advertise.
Excelent product and fast shipping.thanks
Pros: fidelity and exceptional sound
I ordered 3 for family and they all loved the sound they all said that are going to order more it sounds great when it's used as a Bluetooth also..
Pros: Sounds great!
Simple set up for an outstanding performance. Clear and perfect sound out of a small highly technological speaker. Absolutely impressed and satisfied with my purchase. Don't spend time looking for other products, Bose is simply outright the best speaker company.
Incredible sound quality for such a small unit. The only drawback to the design is that it isn't capable of standing up on its own. Not the end of the world but just should be noted. ??
Good sound and easy to use.
Pros: Small, easy to use
Cons: Not stereo
What a great little speaker! This is a perfect travel companion. Sound is great. Bluetooth connectivity is easy and it is so compact! I liked it so much I bought as Xmas gift for my staff. Can't beat it.
Pros: Portable Great Sound Easy Bluetooth Connectivity
Sound is awesome. Easy to connect Bluetooth wise. Charges quickly. Only drawback is the weight, just a tad heavy.
Pros: Bluetooth connectivity, sound.
Great sound...easy to pair with IPhone/IPad.
Pros: Light...easy to travel with. Powerful sounds.
All I can say is WOW Bose never disappoints Still don't believe it's as small as it is !!
Pros: Size, sound, price
Awesome sound from a small speaker. My only negative is that the strap pops off to easily and won't fit around the handlebars on my Harley. But when I do yard work or I am in the garage; I have it strapped to my belt and the sound beats my Apple Air Pods. I bought 2 more after hearing the sound.
Pros: Great Sound!
Cons: The strap releases too easily.
This is the best small bluetooth speaker I have ever had, great date for such a small speaker. I bought two so I could parents them in stereo. WOW sound great??????
Pros: Sound sound sound, small and good battery life. Waterproof
Cons: NONE that I can find.
Great sound for such a small speaker! Easy to take anywhere
I bought a black one of these a few months ago and fell iin love with it. I took it almost everywhere I went. Problem was, the black one would get lost too easily. I would lose it for days at a time since it was dificult to see. Especially in low light conditions. I would put it in my backpack, and at time would not be able to find iit unless I physically stuck my hand in there to feel for it. So when they went on sale for the holidays, I picked up the bright orange one............. Problem soved!
Pros: Super portable, quality sound, and loud!
Cons: Does not stand up on edge on it's own.
I shouldn't have been surprised by the incredibly "big sound" of this very small speaker after having two Wave Radios for years. This was perfect for making my iPod portable without having the Earphones and for hands free phone use.
Pros: Intuitive controls and portability.
Cons: Manual could be more informative.
It was easy to set up.My wife wants to order another speakerLarry
Pros: Good price.Great sound
Great holiday gift for my son and husband. Portable, durable and great sound. Thank you for recommending.
I like this speaker very much. Excellent sound. Good construction.
Got on sale totally worth it! It's small but packs a great sound.
Pros: Great sound, bass and it is portable
Cons: Needs to be charged often
Great sound for such a small speaker. Well worth the money
' Compact and beautiful sound. Everything I hoped it would be.
In Love ??
Good sounding Bose speaker. Not quite on par with my Mini Soundlink but the price point is much lower too. I'm happy with it for my office.
It's a mighty sound out of a small speaker. In Party mode it is very good sound.
Excellent sound from such a small speaker. As always excellent customer service. All questions answered. Will never purchase anywhere else!!
For its size the quality of the audio is very good, great bass and voices sound clear and solid no matter the volume. High frequencies should be raised. Highly recommend the speaker.
Pros: Powerful bass, very clear and solid voices in music and phone calls
Cons: needs high frequency audio compensation
Battery goes on and on and on and.... Sound quality is terrific-- just what you'd expect from Bose. It is very portable (you can pick up a carrying case for it). The cool part is that i can use Spotify or Apple iTunes and operate through my phone! Easy to set up Bluetooth.
Pros: Sound Size Easy to set up
Cons: Doesn't come with a carrying case (but very easily remedied)
Great little speaker for the size & price & although I most likely won't use the strap option I am a little skeptical about its strength & security. The strap is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
Awesome sounding little speaker. It has great sound all around the speaker. It doesn't have to be sitting on a table to have good sound. I strapped it to my back pants belt loop and it still sounded good. Bass is really good for a small speaker. I've had several blue tooth portable speakers and so far the Bose Micro is the best. Battery life could be longer, but so far 6 hours seems to work o.k. It's not the lightest considering it's size, but most of the time it's sitting on an end table or on the vanity in the bathroom. I haven't tested the waterproof aspect, but it should be fine considering the rubberized cover on the speaker. I downloaded the application after I brought the speaker. App seems to be made for adding another Bose Micro. I'm thinking of getting another Bose Micro in order to have stereo sound. I would recommend this speaker to anyone looking for a great sounding travel speaker that can go anywhere from the bathroom to the beach.
Pros: Sound, portable, size
Cons: Short battery life
Amazing product. It can only surprise you with all aspects you are looking from a tiny speaker.
I love it, Bose did great with this one. If you're hanging out by the pool or working on a vehicle it's a great thing to have around
Pros: Small with Big sound,decent bass,very manageable
Cons: has to be recharged after about three or four hours
The bass quality is very surprising for a speaker this small. Clear sound. Good midrange and highs. Small enough to take many places. Setup was a breeze.
Pros: Amazing sound for such a small speaker.
Really happy with this product. It is lightweight and great for travel and has sound that's a lot bigger than you would expect.
Pros: Small, lightweight, durable and has a great bass sound. Links to Bluetooth quickly.
great little speaker. it's perfect for a bed room or small living room area. i can't believe the good clean sound from it. the Bluetooth pairs up with my iphone easily and also with my wife's samsung galaxy phone. i was listening pandora radio for several hours and the battery barely went down 10%. great battery life. also when a call comes through while listening to the radio it pauses and you can talk through the speaker which was pretty cool. it comes with a rubberized strap on the back to prop it up on a table and can be a little tippy. other then that this speaker is definitely worth the price. highly recommended. in fact my one friends who was stopped by when i had it playing couldn't believe it and was asking all about it.
Pros: sound, Bluetooth connectivity, portablitity
Cons: can be a little tippy when standing up, not a big deal at all though
Amazing sound quality in such a small device
Pros: easy to carry, very compact and light to travel with
Great sound, great price. Sent bk because I was told it would pair with my Echo dot but it did not. Disappointed
It sounds awesome. Its small and powerful. It doesn't need to much space.
major sound for it's size!
Very happy to have this next to my treadmill and love not having to mess with ear buds. Small enough to be super-portable but still able to deliver big and clear sound.
Pros: Simple to set up.
I've been using a pair in the garden and they are wonderful. Highly recommended.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!!!!! Little speaker big SOUND!!!!!!!! VERY HAPPY MUSIC LOVER
Pros: Everything works great, easy to program, happy with the size, not much space needed , could hardly tell it is there and it has sharp crisp sound. Perfect!!!!!
Awesome product and awesome service from Crutchfield!
Good sound. Battery life decent as long as you are using it at 50-60 % volume. I plan on taking my Bose SLM kayaking, camping etc. and testing it. I'm a bit worried about the strap not able to hold on to things (compared to the JBL Clip 2 caribiner). I probably won't take this mtn. biking since I use my Soundsport wireless for that. I did purchase during the holiday sale so I was able to get it for a decent price. As always Crutchfield support and service is excellent!
Pros: Price, battery life but you are getting a better sounding, better quality bluetooth speaker.
Cons: Nothing yet. I wish there was a charging port cover. I'm worried that it would get rusted or full of dirt and sand etc.
I cannot believe the sound that comes out of this speaker! It sounds like a speaker that is quite a bit larger in size. I am considering buying a second for my wife because she enjoys it as well.
Ok, I've had this thing for a few weeks. I've listened to it all over the house, outside, in the garage, in the backyard. The sound is great. No drop outs. Good bass, clear highs. The passive is subdued by the strap on the back. Looses some of the bottom end when faced down on a flat surface. I unstrapp it when I put it on a flat surface. Better bass..... The directions suck....why bother including them. There's nothing there to tell you how to operate the unit. The Bose connect app sucks. Can't use it on any device I have. If it ain't Apple related ..Forgettaboutit ! You need Android 5.0 or higher to make it work. Buy me a better phone....? Or make the app user friendly....! Customer service with Crutchfield was great ! Can't say anything bad about that. Bose makes a good product, but there paraphernalia sucks.....and there app ! Rock on !
Pros: Great sound and Bass......
Cons: Paraphernalia, and Bose connect app....they suck !
Amazing sound from a small speaker. It will do everything I need it to do without the worry of having to be overly careful with it.
Pros: Water resistant and shock proof.
Great speaker for it's size. It has bass for such a small footprint. Don't get me wrong, not booming bass but sufficient bass for a small size. I got two so I can use two separately, or both in stereo. Set-up was easy, just go online for detailed instructions.
Pros: Small Size Some bass for the small size Easy set-up for two in stereo
Crisp tones and soothing base, what could be better. Very few drops even moving around.
This speaker is unbelievable I don't know how Bose does it is such a small package the sound is awesome great piece.
Pros: Connects quickly to my IPhone and the sound is awsome
Love this little speaker! Much better base than I expected, and it was easy to link up. I'd like to link a couple together next!
Pros: Good base, affordable
Cons: None yet!
Small speaker, Big Sound, great price for Bose Product and even better value.
Pros: Great for travel....
This is the second Soundlink I have purchased. Having the stereo effect is fantastic, you can have your music anywhere as long as you have blu-tooth. The units are so small but pack a big sound! This is a must for anyone that wants their music anywhere.
Pros: Small with great sound!
Cons: None, Bose nailed this one.
Amazing speaker for the price. Great sound can easily take it anywhere
Pros: Great value great sound very portable
Compact and sounds very good. Seems very sturdy when handling it.
Pros: Small and great sound
Cons: A little pricey
Great speaker. I have other Bose products and this speaker has the same excellent quality.
Pros: Portable. Good quality
Cons: Didn't come with a written manual. I had to call Bose and they told me how to download it.
VERY NICE LITTLE SPEAKER WITH A VERY LARGE SOUND, AND BOSE IS ALWAYS THE BEST , I OWN SEVERAL BOSE ITEMS , SOME FOR A VERY LONG TIME, ALL STILL WORKS GREAT
Pros: NICE SIZE , GREAT SOUND, WATER PROOF CAN USE AROUND HOT TUB AND POOL
Cons: NO CONS
I bought it for my wife, because she loves to hear long hair music while gardening. This speaker fits the bill..It is waterproof. It sounds like a lot bigger speaker than it is. She loves it.
Pros: Love it!
Cons: no cons
It was louder than I thought it was going to be great speaker to take anywhere I would recommend this speaker to buy
Pros: Great speaker loud
Cons: I thought I was going to be able to put on my motorcycle
Great sound for a small speaker bose quality
Amazing sound in a little package! Easy to pair, compact size and great sound with plenty of base. This little speaker is great for travel or to the park.
The sound is great. It seems to lack top end power.
Pros: clear and crisp sound like we expect from bose
Great portable speakers and the sound is unbelievable! One sounds great by itself but two paired are even better! The band to attach them to items is ingenious!
Pros: The strap is great and the sound
Cons: No complaints.
I really like both the sound and the portability of this small speaker. I take it from room to room in the house, on my patio and even in my kayak.
The sound is very good at high and low levels.
Small and convenient portable speaker with powerful sound. Can't go wrong.
Love the sound and the size of the unit. It is very compact and easy to pack. It stays charged a long time as well. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a portable speaker.
It does what I thought it would do - being BOSE though - It was nothing special, and a little disappointed in that it didn't rise above a normal tiny speaker
Pros: nice idea to have a bluetooth connection - walk around without the home devise needing to be wired up
Cons: nothing special about it being BOSE On/off switch is a mystery at times
Great sound as all Bose products have. My friends are surprised at the volume this little box can achieve. It fits well on my motorcycle handlebar and I'm considering purchasing a second one so I can pair them and improve the sound even more while riding my Harley Davidson. The portability is nice also.
Pros: Small footprint, portability
Cons: The black silicone cover shows lint and dust. It does come in different colors so that should be considered.
I bring this everywhere I go! Great sound from a small speaker. Another fantastic Bose product.
Pros: Size, sound
it's cute and sounds good for it's class. I also have the soundcolor and I like that one better for the power. I got this one for travel and to use with the ipad.
Cons: overall power
|NFC Touch Pairing||No|
Rugged & Waterproof: Bose used a high-quality silicone material to eliminate as many seams and gaps as possible in order to create a seal around the speaker to protect it against dust and water, plus guard against dents and scratches. The Bose SoundLink Micro is waterproof and splash resistant with a IPX7 and IPX4 rating. You can immerse the speaker in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 3.2' (1 meter). It can also be used while showering and in the rain or snow. The integrated tear-resistant, silicone strap provides easy transport of the speaker. Simply secure it your backpack, purse, bicycle handlebar, or other object.
Note: Do not submerge this speaker in any pool of water deeper than 3.2' (1 meter). This speaker does not float.
Custom Designed Drivers: The Bose SoundLink Micro portable Bluetooth speaker features a custom-designed transducer and silicone passive radiator that reproduce impressive sound when compared to the overall size of the speaker.
Voice Guided Multi-Device Pairing: Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing, making it simple to wirelessly connect your Bluetooth-enabled source device to the Bose SoundLink Micro. The SoundLink Micro keeps track of the last eight devices to have paired with it, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired. It even allows you to keep two Bluetooth source devices connected at once for easier switching between devices (however, it will only receive audio from one device at a time). The Bose SoundLink Micro will automatically re-connect with an already paired Bluetooth source device when it is in wireless range (up to 30').
Wireless Music Streaming: Thanks to the support for Bluetooth A2DP & AVRCP, you can stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth source device to the Bose SoundLink Micro speaker system. You also get basic playback controls like Volume Up/Down, Play/Pause, and Previous/Next Track from the SoundLink Micro's top-panel buttons. The Bose SoundLink Micro has a range of approximately 30', so you can enjoy your music without wires. If you are using a smartphone and a phone call comes in, your music will be interrupted until the phone call ends. Once the phone call ends, your music will automatically resume.
Hands-Free Speakerphone: The Bose SoundLink Micro also features a built-in mic, so you can use the SoundLink Micro as a speakerphone for your smartphone. The built-in mic will be used to carry on your side of the conversation, while the other party is heard through the Micro's speaker. You can use the SoundLink Micro's top-panel controls to answer, end, and reject calls. The SoundLink Micro can even access the voice dialing functions of your smartphone and audibly indentify incoming callers (when applicable).
Digital Voice Assistance: The SoundLink Micro's built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone on your Apple iPhone 4S and newer or compatible Android smartphone, so you can access Siri & Android's digital voice assistant (like Google Now).
Bose Connect App: The Bose Connect app (for Apple iOS 9.0+ and Android OS 5.0+) gives you quick access to the key features like the auto-off timer, volume control, and battery readings. Plus, it's the easiest way to manage multiple Bluetooth connected devices. From the app you'll also receive software updates, product tips, and be able to personalize settings.
Stereo & Party Modes: For those times when one Bose SoundLink Micro isn't enough, you can use the Bose Connect app to pair two SoundLink Micro speakers together. You can select Party mode to pair two Micro speakers together for double the sound. You can select Stereo Mode to naturally separate and spread the sound across an immersive stereo soundstage.
Top- and Side-Panel Controls: Top- and side-panel controls include Power On/Off, Volume Up/Down, Bluetooth Pairing, and a Multi-Function button. The Multi-function button provides Bluetooth music playback functions (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), as well as Bluetooth hands-free phone functions (such as Voice Control/Digital Assistant Activation, Answer/End/Reject/Mute Call, and Device/Speaker/Call Switch).
Rechargeable Battery: The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 6 hours of playback time. Using the SoundLink Micro's microUSB input, the included microUSB-to-USB cable, and a USB power source (not supplied) you can charge the built-in battery. It takes approximately 4 hours to fully charge the built-in battery. Each time you power on the speaker, a voice prompt announces the battery level. When the speaker is in use, a voice prompt announces if the battery needs to be charged.
Note: Battery performance varies with the content played and volume level.
