Our customers raved about the original Bose SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth speaker, giving it an average rating of five stars. We think the Bose SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth speaker II should be equally popular.

The Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker II is small enough to slip into a bag or purse.

And the SoundLink® Mini II can function as a speakerphone with your paired smartphone. Just press a button on the system's control panel to activate the built-in microphone and take an incoming call.
The built-in lithium-ion battery gives you up to 10 hours of play time, so the SoundLink® Mini II can keep a party going, even unplugged. The included charging cradle keeps the speaker juiced up and ready to grab, so you can slip it into a daypack and have your tunes close at hand anytime. And you can conveniently recharge from most USB power sources if the cradle's not handy.
The SoundLink® Mini speaker II features a solid, anodized aluminum housing and skid-proof rubber bottom, so it can stand up to everyday use whether you place it on a dining room table or a rock by the campfire.

Great sound from a little product.
I'm just saying it's great !......
Pros: great sound
Cons: no cons
The Bose Soundlink is easy to set-up. Both my husband and I compete to play our music and the unit allows us to both be connected wirelessly. The sound is amazing.....better than speakers that are so big that they are pieces of furniture. I'm suggesting our dance club use it for the next outdoor dance....yes it has that much sound quality!
It is a great speaker but I would like to know the purpose of the two outlets at the side of the speaker and how they can be used?
Worth the price.
Pros: For its size it has a full deep sound. The voice battery level when turned on is great feature. The connection speed.
Perfect mobile sound solution. Excellent range in a compact configuration.
Terrific sound, just as you would expect from Bose. And of course the salesperson was very helpful.
Great product. Sound better than its size. Highly recommend to buy
Great sound, nice battery life. It's got to be one of the best. Replaces the JVC that I had.
great size for taking anywhere. quality construction and sound you would expect from a much larger speaker.
I love the new Bose mini Bluetooth speaker! It is perfect in the bathroom in the mornings and great to move to the kitchen later in the day. Great sound , perfect!
Pros: Love it.
Cons: No cons
This speaker is all I had hoped it would be! It's perfect in the studio where I can easily move it around with me, using my phone, iPad, or computer for the playlist. The sound is full-range, despite the small size, and can fill the entire studio if I turn it up. The speaker is solid and durable. The charge lasts for hours, and the docking station is inconspicuous. I'm not very tech-savvy - very easy to set up and control. I love this speaker!
Pros: Small, great sound including bass, easy to set up and control, solid and durable, charge lasts for hours
Cons: Can't think of any
Great sound quality, gets very loud, easy to use, and keeps its charge a long time. It's a little bit heavy to carry in a bag, but not too bad. Over all a great speaker
Pros: Great sound, small, holds charge for 10 hours
Cons: A little bit heavy. Does not come with a carrying case
my factory installed navigation went in my 2007 328xi bmw the radio is integrated into navigation , so I had no radio in my car. I don't care about the nav. but missed the radio, It cost quite a bit from bmw dealer to replace nav. couldn't put in an after market radio went down that road with installers from my area. So I use my cell phone iheart radio app and this mini speaker, great sound for the size of the speaker, So now I can enjoy the radio again! It's amazing the sound quality of this speaker plus it's portable I can take it with me wherever I go. I use straight talk for cell phone service so I get 5G's data a month plenty of data for what I use on my cell. Had speaker in 2 days. Plus when I use it I can answer my cell phone through the speaker. Thanks Crutchfield! You made my day!
Amazing sound! Great highs, mids and esp bass. I listen mostly to jazz like Miles Davis. Portability is convenient. Highly recommended and Crutchfield has the best customer service hands down!
Pros: Sound, sound and sound.
Speaker is so great. Small and great sound combined! Could not be happier.
Easy to use, great sound quality!
Pros: Easy to use, fantastic sound!!
Big sound..little speaker. This speaker delivers great sound. Love it
The soundlink mini has great sound if you like lots of bass and no treble. The midrange and highs are overpowered by the lows. Not what I expected from BOSE. Their speakers always had a nice wide range.
Pros: Great bass response. Plays loud.
Cons: Washed out highs.Crutchfield response on 3/14/2017 Larry, we're sorry you're disappointed in your speaker. Whenever you are not completely satisfied with anything you purchase from Crutchfield, please contact our Customer Support team. Purchases from Crutchfield can be returned or exchanged within 60 days of the purchase.
Great speaker. I love it. It's compact and powerful.
I love this speaker and got two for gifts. The design, the size and the sound are all very good. The only thing that I would add to give it the 5 stars is the ability to receive WI-FI with music directly from the internet.
Pros: Size, style and sound
Cons: No WI-FI
This Bluetooth speaker is a great addition to a small room. It consistently sounds bigger than it is, and is great at holding it's connection. It's sound is better than many speakers in its category, that I have heard-but doesn't quite match the sound from speakers that are larger or more expensive, like the Audioengine. Overall you can't go wrong with this speaker.
Pros: Sound, price
Cons: Won't fill a large room withsound
Excellent product. Impressive sound.
This is solid choice for a Bluetooth speaker. It pairs easily, with guidance by prerecorded voice prompts and a lighted Bluetooth indicator. It is attractive, just the right size and shape. You can use either the dock or a port on the side for charging via a micro-USB cable. A voice recording tells you the percent of battery life remaining when plugging in or removing charging cable or dock. The sound is pretty good for such a small speaker. Voice prompts can be disabled - great when teaching a class. The speakerphone works great, and you can use Siri for dialing. My ONLY negative comment is the high price for the Bose speaker. This was my second choice of BT speaker. First I bought a JBL Flip 4 . Each and every pairing was indicated by a very loud three note guitar riff - DUH DUH DUUUH. This feature could not be silenced. I returned and bought the Bose which has superior sound and features. The only negative is the price.
Pros: Great sound Bluetooth pairing is easy Looks good, perfect size Speakerphone is excellent Nice feature set. Audibles can be silenced
Great product!! Great sound. Perfect for Saturday's with the boys on the golf course!!
Pros: Great sound.
It is a really nice small speaker. The Bluetooth seems to connect over a good distance - it is able to reach if I am not in the same room with it which is nice. The sound is really good. I recommend it.
Pros: Good sound quality
I own a few BOSE products, docking station, earplugs and now the Soundlink Mini II. It is a great system. Brought it to a dinner with friends and enjoyed an evening of great sound coming from the system. Very versatile with the ability to play anything from my phone (iTunes, Spotify, etc.) and hear it through the new speaker. Nice size speaker and I like the announcement of % of battery life available. I love it! The service from Crutchfield was great. Shipped and received ontime.
Compact with great sound you expect from Bose
Good sound for the size of the unit.Easy to to set up. I carry it to my garage when i am working on cars and play the music I have on my phone. I can hear it all over the shop.The charging station does not plug in real snug but it does charge and with the push of a button it will tell you how much charge you have. Fast charge for 10 hours of play. Two thumbs up. Highly recommend.
Pros: Quick Charge time. Good sound
Cons: charger does not plug in securely
Beautiful and full sound, a very small device. I thought it would be a lot larger and was pleasantly surprised. This was a gift for my wife who had wanted one for so long but never brought it. Thank you Crutchfield for answering all my questions and sending it quickly.
Pros: small system with a full sound
Cons: none yet
Perfect companion to an Echo Dot. Great sound. Easy to set up.
Sounds great. The second one that is. The first one refused to charge the battery. The folks at Crutchfield were great on the return. No issues. It pairs quickly and connects very quickly every time I turn it on. The sound quality is really surprising from such a small device. Highly recommended.
Very good sound but lacks depth which is why I gave it 4/5. It has much greater base potential than what this is programmed to put out. The docking station is really nice. If there was an EQ app you could bring the full potential of this speaker
Pros: Very good highs
Cons: Lacks lows and sound depth
Small size big sound, always with the Bose quality
Huge sound from such a small speaker. Excellent service from Crutchfield as well.
It was very nicely packed and delivered before time. Great service.
My purpose for purchasing the Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II was to use it in business presentations. Previously I had these great videos on my laptop that I would redirect to a large screen .... but would have to use my laptop speakers to run the audio. Well suffice to say...they were wholely inadequate!! With large groups...not everyone keeps exactly quiet. And use poor laptop speakers...you get people shhhing other people. Now my audio fills the room! And adds the desired "WoW" factor as my HD videos!! Plus I get the added benefit of using the speaker for my personal use. The sound is much bigger than the speaker itself. It delivers that big Bose sound quality in a compact unit ... that I can carry in my briefcase. Definitely a worthy purchase! Highly recommended!! And there is no one I trust more to purchase it from...than Crutchfield!!
Pros: Great Sound in Small Package. Easily mobile Connects to my apple equipment easily and flawlessly
Cons: Wish the 3.5mm to 3.5mm headphone wire was included
This speaker is awesome! Fills the room with sound!
I won this Sound Link Mini II Speaker in the Great Gear Giveaway Sweepstakes & what a wonderful winning it was! The sound is terrific for such a small speaker. It carries sound at a good distance too. It is fairly light so you'll have no problem carrying it. Some of my friends & relatives have seen & heard this speaker & have dropped hints for this as a present for the upcoming holiday season. I will say, it's worth getting!
Excellent sound out of such a small device. Very easy to use and no issues so far.
Pros: Big sound, portable, holds good charge.
Awesome Sound from a Super Small Unit. Bose does NOT Disappoint ! I have used a Bose Portable Sound Dock for years in the house, out at the beach and when doing presentations. Always had great sound but it was another bag to carry. Now with the Soundlink II I can put that speaker in my computer bag, lighten my load and still get the great sound I and my audience expect! The Big Sound from this Small unit is nothing short of AMAZING
Pros: Small, Easy to carry along, Great Sound, good looks
Cons: Have not found any yet!
Great product, very easy to use, long battery life, sounds great.
" Good Thing come in small package" this definitely define this SoundLink. I'm quite surprised about the crystal clear sound. It's sound like a huge speaker system. I'm glad I'm invested in this Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker. Thinking about getting another one. I would recommend to all my family members,and friends. Love the huge sound,
Built like a tank... and sounds just as powerful! I don't know how Bose does it; but they manage to get really wonderful sound to come out of this tiny box. Not bragging; but my wife and I are used to listening to the expensive, high-end audio equipment in our media-room, so we were really impressed by what this little speaker delivers...for less than two hundred bucks! Christmas came a bit early this year when I bought TWO more...one for each of my daughters! Don't bother spending time reading a lot of other reviews (just this one, haha). Order one today. I can guarantee you'll be happy with it.
Pros: Quality build... quality sound. Long lasting battery charge. Compact.
powerful sound! Perfect for my studio
Pros: beautiful and powerful sound, perfect size for small studios
Love that it's so convenient in size and sounds amazing. I should have pull the trigger a bought it at a glance and I absolutely wasted my time researching it. I got it for my office and it's just perfect, sound is rich, clear and bass is spot on. This is my second due to my wife snatching it up for the kitchen lol I only had it out the box for 10min and ordered a second right away. I hooked it up to the bedroom tv like a mini sound bar for football...awesome!
Pros: Perfect sound
Cons: Nothing at all
I've owned this for 2 weeks now and am 1000% happy with it. The pros far outweigh the only cons.
Pros: Superb full range sound Strong construction Easy to use following a learning curve Better battery life than stated Pairs.effortlessly
Cons: Learning curve a bit steep due to extremely simplistic design. But once you figure it out it works flawlessly which turns this con into a big pro.
You know you can never go wrong when choosing a Bose product. Primarily use this device in the kitchen, but can take it anywhere and it sounds awesome. Was extremely easy to set-up and connects to all the bluetooth devices without any issues.
Pros: Great bass and ease of use/set-up
I loved the sound, the look and the portability, but each song that played skipped. It started from the beginning. Plus, it doesn' t have a remote. I don't want to walk across the room to turn the sound up or down. Crazy for spending the money on this.
Pros: The size, portability, and sound.
Cons: The songs skipped when each song played, and it doesn't come with a remote.
The sound quality and portability are both why I bought the Bose mini sound link and I have not been disappointed.
Great sound quality! Simply design, easy to use! It is very convenient to connect to different devices.
Pros: Great great sound!
Cons: None at this time
I have always been impressed with Bose products and this wireless speaker met all my expectations. Great sound, solid & well made, good controls, nice charging stand & intuitive voice instructions for pairing, charging, etc.
Pros: Great sound including fabulous bass with great loudness & pairs well. Charged perfectly but not sure how long the battery lasts as I have not had it long enough to test this part.
Cons: It would be helpful if a special priced protective soft case & caring case option were available with the speaker. I have purchased a reasonable priced combo case thru other retailers. An optional second charging cord would also be a good add on so that you can set up the charging cradle with the first cord & have a second one available for on the road charging. These would really add to the coolness factor of this product. I hope Bose is hearing this!!
I am well pleased with this item.
Excellent quality and easy to use. Am able to use it from my smart phone and I-Pad which makes it super convenient. The sound that comes out of this little speaker is very powerful and has a strong rich sound.
Pros: Set-up was quick and easy. Long battery life, runs longer than my I-Pad
Cons: A bit pricey but well worth it.
I bought this so I could have something I could use out in the lawn and at the beach. The speaker is compact and has great sound. I have several other small portable speakers but the sound quality is just not there. This little speaker rocks, it is clear and has good base.
Pros: The speaker is compact and has great sound.
Cons: None at this time
I love this speaker! It's actually my second one -- my husband received one for a birthday present and we use it every single day at home. I'm a theatre teacher and wanted a speaker for my classroom and loved ours at home so much that I bought this for my classroom. It's small enough to lock in my desk drawer at the end of the day, I can carry it into the theatre for rehearsal (unlike the cumbersome system used before), and I can put it in my bag if I need to bring it home. The sound is really fantastic for choreography rehearsals with big groups of students in a big theatre.
Pros: GREAT sound! So portable and lightweight! It's so easy to connect to different devices -- iPad, iPhone, laptop.
I'm happy with the Bose speaker so far, but I wish it would get louder for outdoor purposes. If you want loud music outside, then go with the bigger more expensive speaker. Bluetooth connectivity works great with my smartphone. Battery takes a while to charge, a D it drains quick when the volume is cranked.
Pros: Convenient Easy to use
Cons: Could be louder Battery life and charge time
Beyond my expectations.
Pros: Amazing sound for it's size
A musician for over 40 years, sound is important to performance. This is absolutely the best out there. Bose is the best!
Packs a sound better than a system 5x the size and is perfect for my office.
Pros: Sound quality, build (metal instead of plastic) and battery life.
Being new to the smart phone experience I quickly tired of the audio on my phone speaker. After reviewing the excellent Crutchfield website on small portable bluetooth speakers I came across the great selection of speakers offered. My purchase price point was $200.00. Having been impressed with previous Bose products I was drawn to the Soundlink mini ll. After listening to a demo version at a local store I was very impressed. The overall sound quality compared to competing speakers in that price range was outstanding. The Bose mini ll has a smooth emphasis on bass tone with a nice mild mid range and just enough striking highs-very natural sound. Place it near a corner and the sound really expands- greater bass- very impressive! I absolutely love it. Nothing beats it at this price range. BTW ordering the Bose mini ll thru Crutchfield was seamless and delivered on time as promised-great experience!
Pros: Overall excellent sound quality, well made, handsome looking unit, can't be beat in the $200.00 and under range.
Cons: None really. Though a remote might be a nice touch.
Small, solid, sleek & cool looking with Great sound! Everything that was promised for my husband's birthday! We're both happy!
Love it! Got it for my office couldn't ask for a better device. Everything about it is great!
I own several other mini speakers and this is by far the best build and sound of all of them. The Bose is much louder and sounds much better than many competitors that I have tested. I like that this version of the speaker now uses a micro USB port for charging instead of a proprietary port that the first version used. The speaker is light enough that I take it everywhere with me. I recommend to anyone looking for good sounds that is portable and doesn't break the bank.
The sound quality for music is absolutely amazing. I saw it and listened to it on display at a local store, but then bought a Samsung Level Box that was on sale. The sound quality of the Samsung was terrible. So I returned it and got the Bose that I originally wanted. The only thing I would like is to be able to use Aux and Bluetooth inputs at the same time, which was possible with the Samsung, but a minor inconvenience for my needs.
Everything I was hoping for.
Pros: Sound quality Form factor Ease of setup and pairing
Cons: Slightly annoying voice prompts when powered on
I have had a couple of sound docks both wired and Bluetooth . That being said I decided to try this one . In a room it sounds good but outside it will need to be all the way up and is no where near as loud as my previous models. Even all the way up you can still have a conversation . I actually plan to return it for something else more powerful.
Pros: Compact . Looks nice
Cons: Not loud . Not really good for an outside speaker.
Surprisingly big sound from such a small unit. Operation is intuitive, with "Plug and play" capability.
Great features in a small package.
Pros: Bose quality, great price.
Would of given it five stars but all the great reviews hyped it up so much I expected the sound to blow me away. You can only get so much sound from such a small speaker, and for the size, I believe it's the best sounding. I would have given 5 stars if it was $149.
Pros: Carbon color Deep Bass Quality build Design
Best mini speaker i have ever purchased. I had a ihome mini speaker before this one and the bose one is by far the better buy. For the size, extremely good bass. I use it outside a lot, with my phone at half way volume and you can hear it clear as day from about 60 ft away. Plus with Crutchfield I got free shipping. What i saw is what I payed
Pros: Great sound/bass Small and portable Easy to use Looks great
Cons: None at this time
Symphony hall sound from a little box! All 5-stars except the "Coolness Factor". 4-stars because you can't play more than one unit via Bluetooth per device.
Pros: HUGE sound, little box.
Cons: Can't play more than one via Bluetooth per device.
This speaker is really something. I use it every day. It has replaced my clock radio (I never used it to tell time!). I read on another review that placing it close to a wall makes it sound even better is true. I place it in an inside corner and even better yet. Bose is a sure thing for quality. Thanks Crutchfield.
Pros: Size, sound, charging cradle.
Cons: None so far
Extremely happy with the purchase of this little, but powerful speaker! I also purchased the case to protect from bumps and to keep the finish nice. If you're considering a portable blue tooth speaker......this should be it. A definite 5 stars all the way around. Am considering getting another as I am presently carrying this from home to work and back.
Pros: Nothing but great things to say on this fine Bluetooth speaker. The sound is just beyond amazing! So very happy I made this purchase. Great service and FAST shipping at Crutchfield!
I've used Bose products for over 20 years and once again i am very satisfied with their product. I use the Mini as my computer speaker and it does the job just fine. Then, it does duty in my garage, in the backyard, and this summer it'll go boating. I would recommend this to anyone that wants quality sound with "on the go" versatility. Crutchfield came through with their 2 day service and I was very pleased with the whole transaction process.
Pros: Solid build Good sound quality Portability Easy to operate
Cons: Wish it had just a bit more volumn
PRO: Amazing sound, it is very impressive given the size of the device. Sleek design, perfect for my tiny NYC apartment, doesn't take too much room but does exactly what I need. CON: It's a little bit heavier than I thought it was going to be. Also, I do wish there was a small remote included
Definitely worth the money if you are looking for a great portable speaker. The sound is so clear and crisp. Love it!
No problems connecting with gadgets. The sound is really excellent. And the portability will come in handy.
A lot of sound is packed into this streamlined, beautifully designed speaker. The loudness and quality rivals our wood furniture speakers, and the convenience of Bluetooth makes this purchase a no-brainer, especially for the price point. In fact, we liked it so much, we bought a second one.
Pros: Compact design, portability, ease of use, quality of sound, downright cool.
Cons: Extremely addicting, because of all of the pros.
Excellent sound from a very small package.
Pros: Battle life, sound.
Outstanding sound quality from such a small speaker.
Pros: Fast charging, great battery life, awesome sound. No difference in Bluetooth or hard wire sound.
The pearl color and design are fancy enough to be used in our dining area. The sound is well balanced. We usually play music from the music channel application of our TV cable provider. It runs several hours a day providing soothing background music. In our application it only need to be charged every other day.
Pros: Great balanced sound - looks great- good battery life. Unit is very appropriate for indoor use and normal volume levels.
Cons: None for my application, We do not use it in harsh environments or with excessive volume levels.
Like I stated earlier in my comments, looking at this little thing you would never believe the sounds that come out of that little black box!!!!!!!!Always loved Bose always will...These products will progress just as they have....Great Job Bose!!!
Pros: Everything,potable,wireless,amazing 10 hrs or more battery life//
Cons: There is NO cons with any bose products withme SORRY!!!!
Bose the build great products Made in The USA!!!
Pros: Looks and sounds great.
I've had the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth for about a year, and loved it, so bought this one recently as a gift. It is very easy to pair with many Bluetooth devices, whether a phone, tablet, mp3 player and even some computers. Once paired, the speaker will provide excellent quality sound at a good volume of anything your device can transmit whether streamed or stored. I keep mine in the charging cradle most of the time, and then take the speaker with me to other rooms or outside. The range is excellent: I will sometimes leave my phone inside and have the speaker with me outside with no interruptions or static in the music.
Pros: Hi quality, good sound, very portable.
Can't get a radio signal around here for squat. Makes traditional (high quality) radio useless. Streaming now from a tablet to Bose speaker. Sounds great. Natural sound. Easy to connect. Spent the money. Got the good one. Not disappointed. Don't think you will be either. Cheers
Pros: Adjustable volume on speaker. Charging cradle.
Cons: none so far
I purchased this speaker for my daughter for Christmas. We listened to it together and it has such great sound and bass for it's size! It was a hit!
Pros: Sound, quality
Great sound. Great Crutchfield service
Pros: Great sound
Cons: Difficult to switch between streaming devices
Quality sound, quality build.
Pros: Battery life. Sound quality.
Great sound and easy to use at a good price
This small speaker is what you expect from Bose, great sound in a small package. Battery life has been better than expected. We opened the speaker Christmas morning and used it till the night on a single charge. It has connected with everything from Mac to pc to iPhone. One cool surprise feature is that it shows speaker battery status on your iPhone. I am very pleased with purchase.
Pros: Sound Bass Solid build (weight) Good connectivity Good battery
great sound in a compact design. I was impressed with the amount of bass. just grab and go to anywhere
Pros: compact size, great sound including bass
Cons: pricey and not water resistant
I expected to like this unit as I have heard it play in stores. However, not until you use it with your own music and in your own environment, can you truly appreciate it. The simplicity of connection to my wife and my phones and iPads is excellent and transparent. Sound quality is excellent and bass is improved even more by putting it within a foot of a wall( to reflect the bass) We carry it from room to room as the Bluetooth range is excellent. We even expect to carry it to our sailboat as its so small and portable and great battery life. We are so impressed that we are buying 2 more, one for each a of our adult children for Christmas.
Pros: Portability Sound quality Operational efficiency
Great gift. My husband and father love this speaker. Great sound quality.
Great product does exactly what I need it for
I love music and jamming, so you must understand that this heaven made product is my new best friend! the base is amazing. I just wish it had come with all accessories (sound wire) for the $200 I paid for it!
Much to love about this speaker. Great sound on jazz but can handle Rock well. The anti-slip base is important. it won't vibrate off the table when cranked up. Spacious sound from a distance.. can fill a room. The battery (10 hr) will outlast all others for continuous sound w/o a charge.Bose pushes more air for smaller space and the best thing? You can break out a party in your cargo shorts anywhere you go! Don't waste your $$ on Dr Dre Beats pill or other, Bose makes them for the DJ anyway
Pros: long battery before charge, great sound
Cons: none now
Two great companies coming together to sell 1st class productsproducts with 1 class service.
Pros: The best products out there
Cons: Everyone needs more battery power,, don't they? Eventually?
Great device, performs beyond my expectations. I should have purchased this long ago.
Pros: Strong Bluetooth distance Great sound
Cons: The Bluetooth "device announcement" is odd
Da best ever
Pros: It manageable
Cons: Regular too large
It performs as advertised. Quality product all around. Don't hesitate to buy it unless you will frequently be using it close to a pool, etc. It's not waterproof.
Pros: Great sound in this segment and ease of use.
Cons: Not waterproof
Awesome speaker. Loud and crystal clear. It's amazing how much sound come out of this little speaker. You will not regret it.
Pros: Small Loud Clear Quality
For the money, I was expecting better clarity. Now after hearing it I can't justify the price tag. It lacks bass. I'm comparing this to a Jawbone within the same category. The Bose just doesn't have it. I'm not expecting 2 10 inch JL Audio W0's worth of base, but is throws the balance off. In small bed rooms it provides ample enough of sound. Take it out doors...forget about it. Just can't cut it. I did take it into a small hotel gym ( 6 feet by 25 feet) with 2 treadmill going, the Bose is drowned out. Shop around, for less money I'm sure you can find of equal sound quality for much much less.
Pros: Looks sleek, charges fast.
Cons: Lacks sound balance, sound quality doesn't match it's asking price, not loud enough.
Excellent bluetooth wireless speaker. Have been meaning to get one for quite awhile. This one is excellent in sound quality and feels really solid.
I wanted a wireless speaker with good sound that would turn itself on and off when needed. I found that I have to press the power button to activate the speaker, but I don't have to turn it off, so I got most of what I wanted. The great sound and how it looks next to my Macbook Air make it very enjoyable compared to my old wired speakers.
Pros: Great sound, portability and styling; turns itself off.
Cons: Must be turned on to pair with Bluetooth.
Great sound and great base fills a room
This is an amazing portable speaker. Bose did a great job. Sound is really incredible and the build quality is superb. Batter lasts forever i have not even come close to draining it. If you're looking for a high quality portable device this is it.
Pros: Great Sound, build Quality, portability
It's good sound quality, I wished it had a remote
Pros: Good sound
Cons: No remote
Got this for my wife for an anniversary gift and she is tickled pink about it. The Bluetooth connectivity lets her connect to her phone so she takes awesome sound where ever.
Pros: Portability, Great sound
Great product, a gift for a friend, she loved it.
This speaker puts out some really good sound for its size. Unlike some speakers the sound quality doesn't lack at full volume. It usually pairs to my phone within two seconds of when I turn it on. The price looks a little steep but as the saying goes you get what you pay for. I'm very happy with my purchase!
Pros: Fast pairing Good battery life Looks great Sounds amazing
big sound from such a small speaker, I owned the first generation soundlink mini, the second generation soundlink Mini II has the same quality, with more features. Great product from Bose.
Pros: smooth sound, easy to connect, long battery life
I considered the less expensive Color Soundlink, but liked how this is less likely to be knocked over. I'm looking forward to comparing the two side by side.
Pros: Solid craftsmanship, great battery life, and of course great full spectrum sound
Cons: A little distorted at higher levels, but I haven't tried adjusting the input devices settings
I think the speaker is amazing. Bass sounds great. Love that it speaks the battery percentage and the device it's connected to. My one complaint is that if I turn it off after use and don't have it charging, the speaker dies even when it's not in use. This may just be my product so I will be contacting Bose to find out.
I heard one of these at a friend's house and was convinced immediately to get one. Terrific sound, terrific portability. I've used it to project sound to a meeting room. I put it in a Ziploc bag and put it on a shower shelf. I like how I can pause and restart my phone's playback from the speaker and don't have to wake up and access the phone control. It would be nice if it could skip the phone to the next/previous track also, but it can't.
Pros: Sound, portability, battery life, ability to connect to multiple Bluetooth sources
Cons: Expensive, like most Bose products
I reviewed this in the store, but was amazed at how well the sound was at home. The Bass was beautiful and is so nice to use when on the iPad or iPhone. I got this for my wife but I think I'm taking it over :)
Pros: Actually sounds good from mult rooms.
Cons: I only have 1 :(
This speaker seems to be excellent quality. I have been using it at work in an office and also outside on the golf course and it has worked flawlessly with great sound in both areas. The battery life seems to be really good, I used it off and on the entire weekend and still had 4 hours of battery life left when I plugged it back in on Monday. I am very happy with my purchase and would make the same choice again.
Pros: Quality sound, easy to set up and use, works great with my iphone.
I am no audiophile but sound coming from this has very good base and treble. I am totaly satisfied with bose
Pros: Sound Looks Portable
Cons: No NFC
|NFC Touch Pairing||No|
Bluetooth Technology: The Bose SoundLink Mini II Bluetooth speaker offers built-in Bluetooth technology which lets you wirelessly connect with many Bluetooth enabled devices; such as your iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows Phone/PC, Mac computer/laptop, and more. The Mini II supports Bluetooth A2DP/AVRCP for wireless music streaming and Bluetooth HFP for hands-free speakerphone. Bluetooth wireless technology has a range of approximately 30'.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Bose SoundLink Mini II Bluetooth speaker.
Advanced Sound Performance: Proprietary speaker technologies deliver your music in all its clarity with robust sound unusual for a compact, wireless speaker. Its unique driver configuration allows the small, lightweight speaker to reproduce deep, full sound.
Note: For best bass response, the back of the speaker should be placed near a wall, but not directly against a wall. Bass response decreases as the speaker is moved away from a wall. Do not lay the speaker on its back. Sound is emitted from both the front and rear of the unit.
Aluminum Construction: The Bose SoundLink Mini II Bluetooth speaker features a single-piece aluminum cabinet finished in silver with a black mesh grille that is both attractive and durable.
Top-Panel Controls: The SoundLink Mini II Bluetooth speaker features simple-to-use top-panel buttons (Power/Volume/Mute/Bluetooth/Aux). You will control all playback functions of your music from your connected Bluetooth mobile device.
Aux Input: The SoundLink Mini II has a side-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a external portable audio source other than your Bluetooth-enabled device.
Rechargeable Battery: The SoundLink Mini II Bluetooth speaker is powered by a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. A fully charged battery gives you up to ten hours of continuous playing time in most situations. The included charging cradle, USB/AC power adapter, and 40" microUSB-to-USB charging cable recharges the battery and serves as a convenient home base for the speaker, and it lets you play while it charges. An empty battery usually takes three hours to charge. The battery light shows green when the battery is charged between 70-100%. Yellow indicates a charge between 20-70%. And red means the battery is less than 20% charged.
Note: If a connected device stops playing audio for 30 minutes, the speaker automatically turns off to conserve battery power.
AC Power Adapter: You can also plug the included USB/AC power adapter directly into the SoundLink Mini II's microUSB port using the included microUSB-to-USB cable to power the Bluetooth speaker by standard household current.
Firmware/Software Updates The unit's microUSB port is also designed for downloadable software updates that may be available in the future. By registering this product, you will automatically be notified of any necessary updates.
Optional Bose Accessories: You can add a soft cover (018SLMCRVB, sold separately) to the speaker; available in a variety of colors. You can also purchase a convenient travel bag (018SLMTBBK, sold separately).
