    Superior Sound Quality

    • Written by from Houston

    Sound quality that can be expected from Bose. Clear, warm, and therefore pleasant.

    I exchanged this for the Big Jambox, having tried it for several days but couldn't quite get over the how it sounded. I wrote a review of it here too, so that people who purchase it can maximize it's potential if they need the speakerphone functionality. But this review is not a thrashing of the Big Jambox. It's about Bose.

    It's reassuring when you open the box and the first thing you see is a leaflet that says "Our Commitment to You" and they back that commitment with what you hear compared to others. Even a policy that supports this commitment should you not be happy with it. I work in a company (NOT Bose, not even in the same industry) that gives similar promise and can relate.

    The finishing and detail is high quality, down to the power, aux, & service connectors, and power supply. It feels like something that will last. I also have the Bose In-Ear and On-Ear headphones for a couple of years and they are still as good as when I bought them. So with that baseline, I trust this will be the same.

    In the box, you only have the unit and the power supply. Very simple. Wished there was a 3mm jack connector too. But was not a deal breaker for me. I wrote on my Big Jambox review that battery life was what kept me away initially from this product. But I found that sound quality is my prime objective and therefore can 'live with' some shortcomings.

    Overall, great product and hope to enjoy it for years to come.

    Soundlink II Compared to soundlink

    • Written by from North Judson

    I owned the sound link 1 since it first came out and although it was not perfect I could appreciate it's quality build and great looks. Lets start with a sound comparison since it is what matters the most. I found that the 1 lacked the clean mids and highs at mid to high volume and sounds slightly muffled compared to the 2. Where the 1 really shined was nighttime listening because the sound is rich at low volumes. Now the soundlink 2. There has been ample improvement in clarity for the highs and mids specially at medium to high volume. It sounds really good until sounding slightly squeezed at full volume. At low volume the low mids seemed to have disappeared compared to the 1. Bass sounds to separated from mids and highs. This seems to have improved after break in period of about 50 hrs. Two changes that have been made that I did not care for are the green light stays on after full charge now and when the the Bluetooth connection is dropped the volume returns to minimum and has to be turned up again. I bought the leather version and love the look of it and the new cover design works great.

    Awesome speaker

    • Written by from Omaha

    I used mine for the first time today. Sound quality is excellent. Very easy to pair with my iPad and iPhone. I switched back and forth from either. I can't recommend this speaker highly enough.

    BOSE-- Does It Again

    • Written by from JACKSONVILLE

    Just fired up my Bose Soundlink Mobile speaker II- Leather Edition and I'm sitting here listening to a Carol King and James Taylor album "Live At the Troubador" with it synced to my iPhone 5 and all I can say is WOW. Just what I have been looking for. Great sound and mobility. Have to give this one 5 stars!!!!

    No other portable speaker has the sound

    • Written by from Ephrata

    I did a lot of research and I could have bought one of the Bose Portable or Bose speakers or even a Jambox but no other of those is as portable as this unit. Someone who purchases this is looking for a compromise as the larger Bose units no doubt have better fuller sound but this unit puts out excellent sound for its size and weight. You can easily put this in your carry on bag and the lithioum recharchable battery is a big plus as you can set it anywhere without the power connected. The foldable stand and the way the magnets close it on the speaker face is cool and practical. I don't believe that you need to pay the extra $50 for the leather as the nylon will do just fine. Again, if compact sound is what you want, this is the unit for you.

    Battery Power retention is cr4p

    • Written by from warminster

    The sound is OK and it does pretty much what it says on the tin, but the battery on my 6 month old Soundlink is clearly not upto the task. I charge the unit, use it for an hour and next week there's no power left in the cell at all and It has to be recharged; hardly an endorsement of a cable-free system! Bose Customer Services weren't interested, just saying that Li-Ion batteries do that....rubbish.
    I wouldn't bother with this unit again...there are better units out there at the price....and with better customer support.

    Love it!

    • Written by from Whitehorse

    As a non-techie who owns a MacBook Pro, an iPad3, and a new iPod Touch, I needed an easy way to play my digital music... without headphones and with good quality sound... anywhere and everywhere. Speaker set up was a cinch, even for me, and the sound qualitty is better than expected. Love this little speaker!!!

    Easy to set up and use both with Bluetooth and wired, but it sounds muddy and muffled. The highs lack brilliance and the lows sound overdriven. Not worth 350 IMHO. Returning today.

    Bose soundlink II

    • Written by from fairborn

    $229.00 At military exchange. I had never felt the need for an external speaker for my Iphone/Ipod. Dang was I wrong! This Bose is amazing! The sound is incredible. Set up takes all of 5 minutes and the quality of the unit is superior to anything else I've seen! If you don't have bluetooth, you can hook up your ipod with a connector cord (not provided) I did compare this to Beats, Jawbone..ect...side by side. No comparison! This accessory is a must have for anybody that appreciates music. I did get a great deal but the average price of about $270.00 still seems like a bargain for the quality it provides. Did I mention it was amazing? It's Amazing!

    Unbelievable sound!!!

    • Written by from Millarville

    Big sound; small package. I couldn't imagine such a small speaker sounding this amazing until I heard it for the first time. I travel a lot and this speaker fits into my computer bag. I listen to it everywhere. The bass is very full and deep.. Very crisp and accurate sound.

    You have to hear this speaker!! Amazing!

    Bose engineers understanding of sound and speakers are unprecedented.

    I would highly recommend this speaker.

    C'mon when you put out subpar quality on the first edition and call it meant for evening listening it is almost an insult to promise 'daytime listening' quality for the second version. Don't buy this.
