Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker
The SoundLink Mini speaker is small and light enough to tuck into your bag. It weighs in at just 1.5 pounds. Its low profile lets you place it almost anywhere and provides a low center of gravity that makes it nearly impossible to tip over.
The rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers up to 7 hours of playtime. And at home, you can listen even longer-—the charging cradle lets you listen while it charges. An empty battery usually fully recharges in three hours.
The speaker has a range of about 30 feet, so you can enjoy the sound you want without wires. It pairs easily with your smartphone, iPad or other Bluetooth devices. And it remembers the most recent six devices you’ve used, so reconnecting is even simpler.
You might not expect sound this rich from a speaker this small, but the SoundLink Mini speaker is something new. You don’t have to sacrifice performance for portability. Proprietary technologies and an innovative driver configuration combine to deliver full-range sound—-including deep lows-—in an ultra-compact package. It lets you take your music to places it’s never been before.
Here is what other people think about it:
“I am a professional synthesist, sounds designer, composer and have been dealing with professional audio for a very long time…I can say without ego that I have pretty good ears. I just received this Bose device and I am astounded…really…no joke. Everything everyone has written is spot on.
It sounds incredible with full range output, wonderful bass response and clear/crisp articulate high end…all wireless via Bluetooth. It is beautifully designed with a lot of heft and weight, nice touch buttons on the top with led based indicators for power, bluetooth and Aux input. Nice to have visual indicators as to what’s going on
The unit paired with both my MacBook Pro and iPad in an instant and was cranking out tunes immediately. I have the unit on my desk and it is WAY loud enough for personal listening and if I want to walk around the room I can crank it plenty loud. Does it sound like a large full range speaker set up…no. Does it provide really high quality personal listening with an ease of use factor that’s off the charts…absolutely. I also have a small Jambox and its night and day and my in store tests with the large Jambox left me cold…the big Jambox is BIG and IM is kind of ugly (fwiw).
Bose was also smart enough to include an Aux input which is a great feature for me so I can plug one of my instruments or my guitar into my iPad then directly into the Bose without any delay for recording. Lastly the AC adapter is small, flat with folding prongs that go into the wall…nice! For me this is in a way a life changing device for its convenience, size, quality, features and flexibility. Without a question of a doubt worth every penny and more.”
“I purchased all three devices over time, and was able to compare them side by side. I was originally impressed by the Jambox’s (the small one) design and size. The feel of it was great, it had resonance and surprising bass for its size. I decided I wanted something a bit bigger, and louder, especially for outdoor settings. The small Jambox couldn’t compete with a deck full of people and drinks. The Big Jambox could. Quality and build was great. It felt durable, and portable. Battery life on both Big and small Jambox are great. I wasn’t as impressed with the sound quality of the Big Jambox. For its size increase from the baby Jambox, I imagined an equivalent rise in depth. It felt more flat.
I then purchased the Bose SoundLink Mini and have been blown away. It’s similar in size to the small Jambox, build quality is phenomenal, and the depth of sound is astounding for it’s size. It puts the Big Jambox to shame. Battery life is great, sound alone fills a room, and works well in outdoor settings. Accessories are clever and well thought out, and the controls on top are clear and intuitive. I’d recommend the Bose far above Jambox currently.”
“Being at military school with very little room having this tiny yet very very loud speaker makes every day much better and more fun”
