    Excellent crisp sound! Good at filling medium size room. Great for BBQ!!

    • Written by from Aberdeen

    I was first brought into attention of this speaker at the airport, when I heard some quality bass and mid-range sound from the duty free Electronic store. I couldn't believe it was coming out of this little aluminium box! So impressed after playing some of my favourite tracks on it, I ended up buying one for use in my bedroom. Since then, I have used it in every other room and outside in the Garden! Generally, it is hidden out of sight but pumps out room filling music.

    The beauty of this speaker is in its construction with quality material and the sound it produce at normal/high volume is truly impressive. At normal/normal-high listening level, it matches my B&W Zeppelin for detailed mid and natural bass. It is restricted by the bass radiators, so at max volume there is distortion with bass heavy music. Acoustic music sounds so smooth and crisp, there are no complaints here.

    The battery lasts long enough for an evening of listening without being plugged in. I have taken it on holiday, giving much music pleasure even when abroad! I think it is one of the best looking Bluetooth speaker around at the moment.

    If Bose were to update this speaker, I would strongly recommend changing the charging station design and make the power in plug more discreet. As it is, it sticks out noticeably too much, spoiling the aesthetics of the rest if the design.

    I think it's a small but worthwhile investment for great portable music around the home.

    Best little speaker on the market hands down! Solid sound that absolutely refuses to distort and with a good kick of bass to boot! Take a jump in the deep end and buy one! Guaranteed you won't regret it!

    Connected to my Sony laptop, iPhone & iPad in seconds hassle free. This tiny unit packs some punch! The weight is portable yet comforting. Battery life is long enough for that impromptu night out. Great that my pals devices can hook up easily too! Best of all & most important is the sound quality; off the charts. I love it and cannot recommend this enough. An affordable & SUPER gift. Keep up your amazing work please Bose.

    Bose Soundlink Mini

    Amazing sound from something so small, can fill a medium sized room and is good for portability as it is small, light and has a good battery life. No problems with Bluetooth connectivity either and had it for 5 months now.

    You would think this small speaker has got little sound but actually it is as loud as those big, bulky speakers… well actually louder! The amazing thing is you charge it and can use it wherever you want whenever you want? (as long as you have battery and have bluetooth, if you don't have got bluetooth you can get a wire and plug it in)

    So whatever you do, choose bose

    So much sound from something so small

    • Written by from Norwich

    Have tried a few Bluetooth speakers recently including those from Sony etc, and while some of them perform admirably, they simply do not compare to the rounded fullness of sound provided by the Bose. It's a tiny little thing - but the sound is exceptional, without distortion, and oh my it can be loud if you want it to be! It's not the cheapest Bluetooth speaker in the world, but ultimately you get what you pay for, and this in my opinion is money well spent.

    Other reviewers have commented on Bluetooth pairing and connection issues - I have not experienced any problems at all. Connected and paired with 2 iPhones (5 & 5s), an iPad Air, and a 2013 MacBook Pro - all working perfectly.

    Phenomenal things come in small sizes!

    • Written by from Livingston

    The previous reviews about this speaker have it spot on. How such a small device outputs so much bass is beyond me. It's a top quality product, not only in terms of sound, but design too. It pairs with my iPhone, iPad, and MacBook Pro effortlessly. And once you've paired a device, all you need to do is switch it on, turn on Bluetooth from control centre on your device, and it's linked within a second.

    To summarise - buy.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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 yet flawed by unreliability

    • Written by from Sleaford

    I bought my Bose SoundLink Mini in November 2013 having demo'd one at an Apple reseller. Great sound for size etc. and a solid build feel.
    HOWEVER ....... I have probably used mine no more than 10x in total using Bluetooth from iPhone & MacBook Pro [it is now mid-Jan 2014]. The Bluetooth will no longer connect so I have to use the AUX input which rather defeats the object of investing in a 'portable' Bluetooth speaker.
    I would have expected more than 10 weeks use before a major fault appearing. Without this fault, and in the expectation of many years of reliable service, I would have unreservedly given this product 5 stars. A pity ....

    Small speaker, big sound!

    • Written by from WOLVERHAMPTON

    An excellent product with fantastic sound quality for something so small. I have an older Sony portable speaker dock which is quite a bit bigger and I have to say this little speaker has clearer, better quality sound. Small speakers usually suffer a lack of base - this one doesn't, but it is undoubtedly better when placed within a couple of inches of a wall.

    I'm very happy with it and would happily recommend it to anyone looking for a small highly portable speaker.

    Also it looks great, feels substantial and well built.

    Sensational Speaker

    The sound from such a small speaker is absolutely phenomenal. It fits in your hand yet the sound will fill the largest room with a rich base. Highly highly recommended, well worth the price..
