    Disable auto switch off

    • Written by from Hong Kong

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

    The best small Bluetooth speaker

    • Written by from Great Bentley

    Outstanding performance, OK if you're a audiophile you may disagree but in the age of compressed music this product sets the standard. I recommend placing the unit at ear level if possible.

    It's changed my listening habits for the better with its portability.

    SO I never thought I would fall inlove with such a cute little thing! me and my mom were getting her one and it was so easy for me to use and set up right at the apple store with my own iphone for the fun of it, now i want one! 12:30am and been using it since we got home and setted it up! using my laptop bluetooth for the first time and im truly in awe of how the sound quality as always is amazing but just simply the design and features it has! i cant wait to try it on with a AUX cable! it is so worth the $200! im going back to get mine soon! :)

    BOSE hit the right Note

    • Written by from Las Rozas

    I have had a jambox which was good, but this is great. Perfect crystal clear sound from my old Iphone 3GS right up to my IMAC.
    Amazing sound from such a nice sleek designed little box. 5 out of 5 well done BOSE

    Great but an app required

    • Written by from Shaker Heights

    Excellent product. I wish an APP is created to switch the bluetooth and the system on/off, volume up/down.

    Love this little thing!!

    • Written by from Chesapeake

    I have the Soundlink at the office and a mini at home. I crank it in the morning and love it. If I want to tote it with me to another room, it's easy to carry. The sound is so good. I compared other brands, and this sounds the best. I went to four stores to try different brands. Many of the others sound a little distorted if you turn them up.

    The battery lasts for a few days before I have to charge it again. I leave it in the bathroom so I can hear it in any adjacent rooms while getting ready. I crank it!

    In the store I could walk to the other side before it got distorted. In my home, it can only handle one wall in-between your phone and the speaker. I just leave my phone next to the speaker.

    Surprisingly excellent

    • Written by from London

    If you audition this in a store you will not be hearing it at it's best, I find the Mini performs better in a smaller room (eg. bedroom, hotel room etc) - so do not underestimate the sound quality on the showroom floor. I was also quite keen on the larger SoundLink III however I did not think it was that much of a step up in audio quality for the size and weight trade-off. The Mini is an excellent speaker with rich bass and highs for such a small size - definitely the best mini-bluetooth speaker on the market. Highly recommended.

    wins a comparison with JBL Flip, Jawbone and UE Boom

    • Written by from jacksonville

    I purchased the mini Jawbone for listening to Classical music from my computer but was very disappointed in the lack of volume I could get. I then purchased the Bose Soundlink Mini, the JBL Flip and the UE Ultimate Ears Boom and compared them directly. While all three have a lot more volume than the Jawbone, the JBL Flip is not nearly at the level of the other two. The UE has an appealing, boomy sound, as the name suggests. As a Classical musician looking to get the real tone of string instruments from the speaker, however, the Bose Soundlink Mini was definitely the winner. It is worth noting that the UE Boom seems to have a better wireless range and, unlike the others, the Bose cannot be charged using USB, though it comes with a charging cradle.

    Awesome bit of kit

    • Written by from Beeston

    I bought the BOSE speaker just after Xmas & never thought it would be as good as it actually is.
    The sound quality you get from it is absolutely outstanding, the best mini speaker on the market by far.
    Even 3 of my work colleagues have bought one since taking it to work.
    5 star rating from me!

    The Best Sound!

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    I wanted to splurge on my wife this past Christmas. She often complains about the tiny speaker on the iPhone. I compared several different blue tooth speakers. I liked the sound of the SoundLink Mini the best. I knew I had purchased the best sounding mini speaker, but I was not prepared for just how good the sound would be. If you place the Mini about 12 inches from a wall or other backdrop, the sound is even more present and seems to fill the house. I am floored by this product. We mostly use the Mini indoors at work and home; we don't travel with this unit - the sound is perfect for ambient music while working, studying, or cooking. The unit is also loud enough to play over a party if placed properly in the room. I am very impressed with SoundLink Mini. It is highly recommended.

    I have tried several bluetooth small speakers, including the Beats Pill. The bose knocks the spots of all of them, its amazing how much bass it produces and the sound fills a room! Everyone who comes round cant believe is that one tiny speaker producing the level of sound it does.

    The construction is solid metal and its a heavy device.

    The charger can be a bit of a fiddle to get on and I have invested in the limited choice of speaker covers just in case it has a small tumble.

    I highly recommend the product, you will not be disappointed!

    I thought I wanted a longer battery life.
    I thought I wanted a splash proof neoprene outer casing.
    I thought I wanted an included carry case.
    I thought I wanted all of these things and more until I heard this incredible speaker.

    After just a very short demonstration period I realised I could sacrifice all of these things because what I really wanted was the sound that this little sonic marvel produces. We all know that it will never be as loud as your dedicated home system, but this speaker replicates a depth of a much larger speaker that I have not heard in any other of it's size. All other portable units I sampled had a harshness that cut into my listening experience. This beauty has warmth and for the first time... BASS!

    It may be on the heavy side compared to other portables but that just tells you that it stinks of quality and oozes class with it's brushed aluminium finish and included charging stand.

    You all know your price range and the things you think you want, but trust me, take a listen to this miraculous machine because you may realise that you want something completely different.

    Great sound but one glaring weakness

    • Written by from Tecumseh

    This speaker has excellent sound, especially for its size, but the one weakness is that it shuts off after 30 minutes if it receives no audio signal. This makes it totally unusable with my iPod alarm. I could understand it if this happened on battery power, but it makes no sense whatsoever on AC power. The same thing happens if I use the aux input on the speaker - this makes even less sense. To me this is a major design flaw. I have searched for an app that would send an audio signal (inaudible high frequency) to the speaker every 20 minutes or so, but have not been able to find one. Has anyone come across such an app?

    Can't control the Bass

    • Written by from Venice

    I probably shouldn't complain but the bass over powers the mids and highs. Can't reduce it so everything I play soundtrack bassy. If I can't find an EQ that can balance my Pandora and music library I'll have to return it. The rest is good

    Very Impressed!!!

    • Written by from Gilbert

    Just received my Bose mini speaker and I was blown away. So easy to operate and set up. The sound is amazing for such a tiny speaker. It's so nice and portable and can be used for presentations in small rooms where I need it with my laptop. This is a fantastic speaker, great quality and name brand and so sleek and nice.
