    Terrific small speaker with a big sound

    • Written by from Clovelly

    Hesitant I have to admit, not expecting too much from the small form factor but I have owned it now for almost a year and have been totally delighted with the speaker. Sound is great, plenty of bass, it feels quality, works effortlessly and great for camping, indoor outdoor etc. not disappointed. It would be nice if you could charge it via USB cable but other than that it's terrific and highly recommended.

    The best in its class

    • Written by from Moscow

    Bought one of these last year in Amsterdam, since then it is my favourite portable speaker which travels with me everywhere. Surprisingly powerful and clear sound in such a small device. Design is perfect. Together with a case it is the best travel companion a music lover may find :)

    Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth Speaker is The Real Deal

    • Written by from VICTORIA

    I have spent months looking for the perfect Bluetooth speaker. I've read reviews, listened to salesman trying to sell me their products. I've synced them to my Apple iPhone 5s. Most lacked bottom end (bass) and sounded too tinny. No luck.

    Until one day I ran into this kid from a local stereo shop. I told him what I was looking for and he asked me if I had seen the new Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth Speaker. I hadn't. He told me that he synced one up to his MacBook Air and that it sounds awesome.

    A couple days later I was thinking about what he had said. I took the plunge and I bought a Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth Speaker. I synced it to my 2014 15 inch MacBook Pro with Retina and boy is it ever sweet. The sound is magnificent. It has a nice balance of highs and lows. It's compact and so I can tuck it into my lap top bag and take it anywhere with ease.

    Lots of Bang for the Buck!

    • Written by from Redford

    This speaker is simply awesome! It delivers full rich sound. I have it paired with my iPad Mini 2. I use it mainly for listening to audio books and my iTunes. The sound on the books is so crystal clear that I can actually hear the narrator take a breath at times. (I could NOT hear that through the iPad speakers, though). Weighing 1.5 lbs, the Sound Link Mini feels substantial. It has a rubberized bottom so it stays put.

    On a customer service note, I'd like to thank the young man at the 12-Oak Mall Apple Store (MI) for taking the time to set it up for me, pair it with my IPad and answer my other questions. Your help was appreciated.

    Quality is Splendid

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Have it next to my bed, paired with my iPhone 6. Sound is so good . . . worth a million dollars. Try listening to Massive Attack. It's these "little" things in life that can create a lot of joy.

    Get what you pay for.... and that's good.

    • Written by from Pontefract

    For a speaker of it's size and purpose it is definitely at the upper end of the price spectrum - But probably the best portable speaker on the market. Such a small speaker that can fill a room with quality sound.

    One of my absolute favorite pieces of electronics

    • Written by from Jamaica Plain

    Worth every penny. It plays back my music at my bedside when I wake up. It comes with me to the bathroom when I shave and, well, the usual. It comes with me when I travel, whether by car or by plane. Everywhere I go, this baby produces excellent sound for the money, and it is tough. It may not have the artificial (and lousy-sounding) bass of some models, but this is a remarkably accurate-sounding speaker, in a compact package and for honestly not a lot of money for what you get. I will keep this device for a long time, and I have no doubt it will continue to serve me well. Definitely one of the best buys I've made in the last two years.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Macomb

    The Bose speaker was a very good buy for me; it provides a lot of entertainment for who ever I am with. I decided to write this review because I enjoy listening to music and I am very satisfied with this product. I like to use it during my leisure time, it helps calm me down when I am upset or stressed. During parties it helps provide the life of it. It was reliable because it never broke on me, and it had a very long battery life. I am very loyal to this product and I will definitely not use anything other than Bose.

    Love it!

    • Written by from La Canada

    I was listening to my Spotify using the internal Macbook pro speakers. I don't know much about computers. Anyway, I got these speakers because of the reviews and I'm so glad I did. The quality of the sound is great! Such a big sound for such a little thing.

    do not buy this piece of ....

    • Written by from Hjørring

    This speaker works fine at first, but after a while it just stops connecting to the speaker via. bluetooth. The same happened to my new iphone 5s - it connected for about one week, and now it is completely unable to connect, and i've tried everything to make it work. This happens to a lot of people who buy this speaker, so save yourself a lot of trouble by not buyng this stupid speaker.

    Great sound, but bluetooth connectivity kills it.

    • Written by from San Mateo

    Do not buy this speaker if you are planning to use if from more than one device.
    Here is the expected workflow I have in my mind for a "wireless player":
    1. I take one of the paired devices: phone, laptop, iPad.
    2. The device recognises the player.
    3. I push play button.
    4. Music is playing.
    Here is the how it works:
    1. I need to go to the player and wake it up.
    2. I need to find the device (one out of 6 in my house), which is currently connected to the player.
    3. I need to disconnect current device.
    4. I need to get back to my device of choice.
    5. Find bluetooth settings.
    6. Connect the device.
    7. Play the music.

    I want to dance to the music, not to the stupidity of the product designers, who thought the workflow above makes a useful product.

    best portable speaker

    • Written by from Winnipeg

    best sounds and built for it size other than that nothing else. (5 star)
    cons:
    no microphone
    only uses bose charger (also 12volts car charger doesn't fit (pop-out) in 12volts car plug. Volvo xc90
    not capable of charging other usb devices
    no previous and skip button (not sure if can enable in future firmware update)

    comments:
    bose firmware software doesn't say if latest firmware is installed (apply on all soundlink speaker)
    even when it is plug in or on the cradle, playing at high volume doesn't charge the speaker (power supply adapter has enough supply to
    play at high volume)

    "Wondrous machine"

    • Written by from Barcelona

    This little marvel could have just popped out of a cartoon, where magic is at your will. I own much bigger audio gear, but honestly I cannot say it sounds (much) better! My Bose Soundlink Mini is always ready to provide that pure listening enjoyment I would NEVER have expected from such a tiny set of speakers.

    Not drinking the Kool Aid

    • Written by from Victoria

    I have a lot of Bose increasingly become unhappy with their products as they move more and more to manufacturing off shore and just slap their name on poorly made junk. I bought this because I read several glowing reviews from so called trade experts, but again, very disappointed. It links up inconsistently with my iphone, macbook and ipad, sometimes seamlessly, other times at a glacial pace. I also don't think the sound is as good as it should be, it is certainly pretty good but I have better speakers with more range. The charging device is a pain, because it essentially renders the speaker only semi portable. Not a disaster but Bose is slowly selling off their credibility in pursuit of mass market appeal, and I'm pretty much done with them.

    Fantastic little speaker

    • Written by from Glen Ellyn

    I am generally not a huge fan of Bose products, but this speaker is great. I have listened to plenty of other bluetooth speakers and haven't heard better from such a small footprint. You will not be disappointed.
