Amazon Vine Review ( What's this? )
Length: 9:27 Mins
The Bose SoundLink Mini really raises the bar in the high-end "mini" bluetooth speaker area, if not at least in sound quality then in build quality. There are several other speakers in this space, the two closest would probably be the Jawbone Jambox Jawbone JAMBOX Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - Black Diamond - Retail Packaging, and the UE Boom Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - Black (980-000678). I've listened to the other two and in my opinion the Bose just sounds better all the way around. There is a richness and fullness to the mini's sound that is not matched with either the UE or Jawbone Jambox.

The first impression you get when you take the SoundLink Mini out of the box is how substantial it feels. It weighs 1.5 pounds and has heft. When you place it on a table or on the charging cradle, it is stable and does not wobble. The enclosure is solid aluminum. Its got a matte finish to it and there is a row of rubberized buttons on the top. The front and back grills are metal.

Weight 1.5 pounds
Dimensions 2.3 x 7.1 x 2 inches
Battery: 7.4V, 2330mAh, 17Wh, Li-ion battery (battery is user replaceable)
AC Adapter: 100-240V, 50/60Hz

On the right side of the speaker (as you look at it) are a 3.5mm AUX-in port and a DC input for the AC Adapter. The AC adapter is thin in design and has a clever folding plug that makes this a cinch to throw in a bag or suitcase when traveling. The generously long cord length of 62" means you have a little more flexibility in where you can put the charging cradle.

The only other port is a MicroUSB port on the bottom of the speaker, right next to the charging contacts (for when the speaker is placed in the charging cradle.) The USB port is only for firmware updates. I was very disappointed that the speaker cannot be charged via USB since that is almost the most universally accepted way to charge most bluetooth speakers that I've seen. However the charging dock is convenient to use and you don't have to fiddle with USB cables, so in that sense it's fine. The charging dock is not perfect though... I often have to fiddle with the speaker to get it positioned properly on the dock.

The battery is 7.4V, 2330 mAh Li-ion and is accessed by gently lifting up the marked corner edge of the rubber base of the speaker. It's secured by 4 Torx-T9 screws.

I was able to fully charge the speaker in just about 3 hours and the speaker will play for up to 7 hours and maybe a bit more if you keep the volume down.

The rubberized row of buttons are: Power On/Off, Mute, Volume -, Volume +, Bluetooth, and AUX. When you first turn on the speaker, a white light briefly flashes above the power button to indicate power is on but it quickly turns off again. At this point the speaker will automatically be in bluetooth pairing mode if it has not previously been paired. There is a flashing blue LED to indicate that the speaker is in pairing mode. Pairing is accomplished quite easily and in some cases you may have to enter a code to complete the pairing: \"0000.\" Not all devices ask for the code... my iPhone4 did not ask.

Once you are paired, you can begin playing music from your connected device. Volume is controlled by both your device and the speaker. When you've reached the maximum level of loudness using the controls on the speaker, the white light above the bluetooth button (or the AUX button if you are connnected via a cable to your device) will blink.

I found the sound quality to be excellent. For best sound reproduction you should place the speaker so that there is a vertical surface behind the speaker to allow the bass to reflect from that surface. You should also be careful not to \"enclose\" the spekaer in a cabinet or that will play havoc with the way sound is dispersed with the Bose speaker. Please note that because of the way the Bose directs sound out of the front and the back of the speaker to achieve its signature sound this is not the best choice in speaker if you plan to use this outdoors with no abilty to place the speaker in front of a wall or other suitable surface that will reflect the sound. Additionally, since it is metal, it's not the best choice if there is the persistant chance that this will be banged around (although Bose does sell \"soft skins\" to help protect the speaker.)

i honestly prefer the sound of the mini to the full-sized SoundLink and SoundLink II. While it is true that the sound level is significantly greater with the SoundLink and SoundLink II, the bass is too boomy for my tastes. I much prefer the overall sound quality of the mini. It has a decent amount of bass that is balanced really nicely with great mids and highs.

Some people will no doubt be disappointed that the SoundLink Mini does not include a lot of extra features that are prevalent in even the least expensive of many other bluetooth speakers such as hands-free capability, USB charging, travel bag or even a 3.5mm AUX cable. But these omissions don't deter me from giving the SoundLink Mini a high recommendation.

This is a beautifully designed, great sounding bluetooth speaker that produces a satisfying amount of volume. It's understated elegance is easy on the eyes and if you do want a more flashy appearance, Bose has \"soft skins\" available in a variety of bright colors. These will protect the mini against damaging bumps and dings but at the same time make it look less \"elegant\" because you lose the look that beautiful and solid aluminum enclosure. Bose 360778-0010 Soft Cover for SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker, Orange.

If you plan on taking the speaker with you when traveling, you may want to take a look at the travel bag that is also available.Bose 360779-0010 SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker Travel Bag - Retail Packaging - Gray. A car charger cable is also available.

I was duly impressed with the SoundLink Mini. It's about as solid and good sounding as a mini bluetooth speaker could be."}">Read more ›

Here is my take on the Soundlink II vs. the Mini as I think there are a lot of people out there who might be considering the two. I posted a picture in the main description with the two of them side by side so you won't think I'm blowing smoke 🙂

I purchased both speakers because I wanted to see which one sounded the best because even though I was initially attracted to the small size of the Mini, I figured I'd keep the II and spend the extra hundred bucks if it sounded better overall. After tesing the two, the Soundlink II is headed back to Bose.

I don't even know how to explain it to you but the Mini actually sounds better than the II and it is 1/3rd the size. This makes no sense to me because the II has four drivers and two larger radiators and the mini has two drivers and two smaller radiators.

When I played the Soundlink II, the first thing that came to my mind was that somehow this speaker was lacking--in more than a few ways. The bass was weak, it sounded rather flat, it wasn't as loud as I was expecting it to be (yes, I pressed the volume button on the speaker till I saw the flashing light which means it's on max), and it had absolutely no stereo separation because you could easily pinpoint which direction the sound was coming from even at louder volumes. Honestly, I'd be embarassed to turn the Soundlink II up during a party with a group of friends because I know it wouldn't allow us to "feel the music" because the sound has no depth. I knew I was going to send the II back after about five minutes of listening but I listened to it a little more to see if I would change my mind. If you remove the Bose logo from the II, I don't think you would pay more than $30 for it based on the sound quality alone. Yes, it sounds that bad to me.

I actually originally wanted to buy the Mini instead of the II altogether but it was backordered everywhere so I ended up buying the II first. The first thing that you will notice about the Mini is not the sound but the design and build quality. I'm actually still in awe of how nice this unit really is. The case is SOLID ALUMINUM!!! It actually feels more like iron! Sometimes I just stare at it because they just don't make stuff of this quality anymore. I like to hold it in one hand and tap on it with my knuckles and hear the solid sound that it makes! When you hold it in your hand you will just know right away that it is a high quality product. Now the II doesn't look that bad either but there is just something about the Mini that will attract and keep your attention. Actually, I take that back, the Soundlink II is built well but it looks ugly because it doesn't look like a speaker. It looks like a book? More specifically, a book that is about to tip over at any moment. It looks even uglier when you flip the bi-fold cover on and lay it flat. The Mini, on the other hand, really does look like a mini speaker. I actually can't imagine designing it any better. Bose must have hired a new guy or gal to design it! I even think the small detail like the painted Bose logo looks so much better on it than a regular metal logo. Build quality and design for the Mini gets 5+ stars!!!

Regarding sound, as I stated earlier I am still scratching my head as to how or why this smaller unit sounds better than the larger II. Since I can't explain it to you I will just say that there is nothing mini about the Mini's sound. It addresses all the issues I had with the II. I'm not saying that the bass is better with the Mini but it certainly is more than appropriate for a speaker this size. The reason I am happier with the Mini's sound is because the size/performance ratio is much better than the II. With the II, I kept saying to myself \"it should be louder than this\" and \"where's the bass?\" because the II should definitely be louder and more refined considering its larger size and price. When you crank up the II, it just sounds \"sloppy.\" When you crank up the Mini, it sounds tighter. I also want to say that I actually enjoy listening to the Mini on my desk at lower volumes. That's actually what I bought it for. It's just nice to know that it can get loud if you want it to.

In all fairness, I didn't listen to the II for more than a few hours but I highly doubt there would be a night and day difference with any type of speaker break-in period. I have been an audio enthusiast for 18 years and I know that what I'm hearing with the II is pretty much close to how it was engineered to sound. I can't see a speaker break-in period getting the bass to go down another note on the II. Even without a break-in period with the Mini, I am very happy with the sound.

To give you some faith in my review and to prove that I'm not one of those people who looks at Bose and automatically thinks \"Bose is best because it is expensive...\" I sold my Acoustimass 15 speakers years ago for an NHT and Velodyne setup for my living room and never looked back. I'll even be the first to tell you that I think Bose's Waveguide technology is just hype with phenomenal marketing behind it and most of their stuff is probably marketed with a prestige pricing strategy. I don't think Bose is anywhere near the best as far as the sound reproduction of some of their larger stereo and home theater speakers go but there are some things that the company does right and the Mini is a perfect example. Sound quality is a major factor in picking a speaker but believe it or not it is not the only factor. Aesthetics, build quality, and size to performance are also equally important factors when choosing a speaker. Ask yourself if you would buy a boxy 300 pound tower speaker with a giant footprint and put it in your living room just because somebody rated it as the greatest speaker in the world? Why do you think so many people bought the Acoustimass speakers back in the day and still do today? For example, I wouldn't mind having a Lifestyle Acoustimass setup in my office. Not because I think it would make my music sound its best but the ratio of aethetics to sound quality would be much better than a larger, more clunky setup with lots of wires. So that's why I am saying the Mini is an excellent speaker. Not because I think its the best-sounding speaker but because there isn't a Bluetooth/portable speaker on the market right now at this price point that even comes close to offering you everything that the Mini does. I know I said earlier that people make the mistake of thinking that loud sound from a small speaker somehow is an indicator of a good speaker but in the case of the Mini, I'm saying its a great product not because of sound quality alone but because it has other factors going for it as well. One of those just happens to be that it produces large, high-quality sound for its small size.

Having said all of this, I cannot find anything that I dislike about this speaker. I hope you understand how I evaluate speakers and how I am evaluating the Mini. Asking for more bass, greater dynamics, or louder volume, considering it's dimunitive size, would be totally unwarranted and impractical. For what it is, I think you will be very happy with the Mini because there is nothing out there right now for two hundred bucks that can match it with regards to performance and overall quality. This is one of those Bose products (maybe the only) that I wouldn't even mind paying more for; it looks and sounds that good. Finally, I want to say that setup took about five seconds for both models as they both recognized my iPhone immediately. Another added benefit of the Mini compared to the Soundlink II is that the battery charge will last longer than the II. I also want to add that I actually don't care that either unit doesn't have a mic built into them or any other special features. After all, their primary use is for music playback. I mean a mic would be cool but I can live without it. Somewhere in the future I can see Bose releasing a Soundlink Mini II. Right now though, I really don't know what they could do to make the original Mini sound or look any better.

5 stars and highly recommended!

EDIT 8/20/13: I ended up buying the neon green cover for it. Personally, I think the speaker looks much better without the cover but you might think differently."}">Read more ›

I am a professional synthesist, sounds designer, composer and have been dealing with professional audio for a very long time...I can say without ego that I have pretty good ears. I just received this Bose device and I am joke. Everything everyone has written is spot on.

It sounds incredible with full range output, wonderful bass response and clear/crisp articulate high end...all wireless via Bluetooth. It is beautifully designed with a lot of heft and weight, nice touch buttons on the top with led based indicators for power, bluetooth and Aux input. Nice to have visual indicators as to what's going on

The unit paired with both my MacBook Pro and iPad in an instant and was cranking out tunes immediately. I have the unit on my desk and it is WAY loud enough for personal listening and if I want to walk around the room I can crank it plenty loud. Does it sound like a large full range speaker set Does it provide really high quality personal listening with an ease of use factor that's off the charts...absolutely. I also have a small Jambox and its night and day and my in store tests with the large Jambox left me cold...the big Jambox is BIG and IM is kind of ugly (fwiw).

Bose was also smart enough to include an Aux input which is a great feature for me so I can plug one of my instruments or my guitar into my iPad then directly into the Bose without any delay for recording. Lastly the AC adapter is small, flat with folding prongs that go into the wall...nice! For me this is in a way a life changing device for its convenience, size, quality, features and flexibility. Without a question of a doubt worth every penny and more.
