    Phenomenal

    So much competition, so many portable bluetooth speakers to choose from. Your search is over. Perfect for a one room setting or a day at the beach with the family. Bose is always the quality choice.

    Phenomenal!

    • Written by from Saint Petersburg

    Absolutely everything I thought would come from a Bose product. I thought it was pricey initially for a Bluetooth speaker, but Bose always delivers! I would have given it 5 stars but there is some issue with docking it in the charger. It doesn't line up easily, especially if you buy the soft cover accessory. Other than that, fantastic sound quality, and very easy to link with any Apple product!

    Bose >>>> Pill

    • Written by from LAFAYETTE

    I have beats studios, solos, iBeats, and I decided it was time for a speaker. As you may guess my first option was the Pill. I like the Pill's sound but it was more about loudness than being crisp. I then compared this to the Pill side by side, and the Pill sounds like straight garbage. The soundlink mini delivers both great volume, loudness, bass, and treble. Wouldn't even consider buying a beats speaker after listening to this beast.

    This Bose speaker is made for Apple products.

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I got this for this past Christmas and have enjoyed the sound since. This is not a complicated system that requires sound analysis or anechoic chamber. Sound reproduction can be simple and Bose makes it simple for the masses.

    Bose has created items that enhance our recreational activities and down-time. Try this speaker-it works on so many levels!

    Rubber bottom made this FLOAT RIGHT OFF TABLE in 2-3 MPH breeze. BEWARE

    • Written by from Eastlake

    Took this baby outside while gardening and thought my husband was careless and knocked it off the table. I yelled at him and scowled. Put back up on the cement tiled tabletop and began my chores again. Not too long and off the table it was AGAIN! I yelled again and when my husband came over to the table, he suddenly says, LOOK, I told you I didn't knock it off! There it was, as if there was a ghost pushing across the tabletop, floating across to plummet again. We were floored! We check the windspeed on the iPhone and it was 2-3 MPH breeze. Unfortunately, our new speaker is now far from new. The speaker now crackles and there are two dents in it from each fall. Bad design, why is that there anyway?

    The best bluetooth speaker on the market bar none.

    • Written by from Allentown

    I received this as a gift and I was blow away by the sound quality. It will fill a large room with awesome sound and without distortion. There is nothing and I mean nothing to not like about this speaker. Bose build quality and sound quality. It is not light but you need those powerful magnets to get this amazing sound. I have literally listened to every bluetooth speaker from $150 to $300 and this is the best. No buyers remorse and no disappointment. Pair this with your iPhone, iPod, iPad, or Mac and you will not be disappointed. If you are on the fence about buying these speakers, get off and just do it. You will not regret this purchase.

    Incredible! I purchased it a few weeks ago and it is surprising how powerful and how beautiful the sound quality is. Lots of magnificence coming from such a small device. No need to look elsewhere. I have read old reviews that states that it cuts out. IT DOES NOT. I have it running for hours and never cuts out. Absolutely love it. Nice job Bose.

    Worth the money.

    • Written by from Calgary

    There's a lot of junky speakers out there that promise a lot, but fall short. Not these.
    They are a bit bass-y, but there are ways around that. We bought this unit for travelling, but the bluetooth connection to these is faster and easier to connect to than our Apple TV, so we find we use them in the house a lot. We have diverse musical tastes; ranging from classical to rock, jazz and country. They all sound good with the right equalizer setting in iTunes.
    They are great for car trips. Good sound in the hotel room is delightful.
    So is having them out on the back deck. With a decent router and an iPad or Macbook pro, we get our whole library available.
    For once, a product that works as advertised.

    Actually Sounds AMAZING!

    • Written by from Boulder

    Let me preface this by saying I actually LOATH Bose products. As an audiophile I think Bose's sound quality is quite horrible and overpriced. They pride themselves on good audio but everyone in the audiophile industry know what a joke they are. I was totally against all Bose products until I heard these.

    These sound AMAZING for the size and price. I was blown away by how accurate the sound stage was for these. Very clear bass, mid, and treble! In fact the bass response surprises me considering how small they are.

    I also own the UE BOOM and it does not even compare to these. The UE Boom bass and mid are muddy and sound distorted at high volume. The only thing the UE Boom has over the bose is portability.

    But for everything else the Bose just kick all the others out of the park. I use these on the go in my car as well, they fit perfectly in the middle console and don't shift around while driving because of the material the bottom is made out of.


    Don't hesitate to buy these! They are no like the rest of Bose's speakers.

    We'll worth the price

    • Written by from Williamsburg

    I have owned and used the SoundLink Mini since before Christmas '13. It is still going strong and producing great music. I play it primarily off of an iPhone via Bluetooth, and use it regularly all over the house, garage, outside deck, the beach, etc. Price paid $200.

    Pros: sound, battery life, portability, and durability (has been dropped and got some sand in it at the beach without issue)
    Cons: sometimes tricky to line up with the base for charging, occasionally wants to remain paired with previous device

    After 6+ months I'd say its a great product with no real negative aspects. If it's in your budget, I recommend the purchase.

    Simply the Best

    Incredible sound. Deep base. Perfection. Don't waste your time looking at anything else. I looked at the JBL, Jawbone, Beats and Ultimate Ears. Bose blows them all away.

    Sounds as good or better at high volume than my expensive SoundDock-10

    • Written by from Lafayette

    Despite a price closer to a grand, weight exceeding any bowling ball, and large-boombox size, I bought the first SoundDock-10 in my city, due to the exceptional sound quality. Imagine my surprise when I discovered this "Mini" for $200 sounds just as good as my SoundDock-10.

    If I hadn't heard how good it sounds, I would have NEVER believed what I am telling you. So don't take my word for it. Listen to one for yourself in a store. They sell them at Target. It sounds as good as those washing-machine-sized Klipsch speakers from back in the 1980s.

    Too Much Bass

    • Written by from Greenfield

    Awesome little speaker system, love everything about it but it needs an equalizer app so that the bass can be turned down!

    The major and only complain about this device is the lack of standby mode. It will switch off completely after minutes of inactivity.
