Bose SoundLink Color Bluetooth Speaker II – – Great portable device

Bought it for my wife and i earned serious brownie points.

Its portable size, the sound quality is very impressive. I bought it for my 9 yr old daughter, and she is delighted with it.

Brilliant sound from this little speaker, easily links to other bluetooth devices, regularly used along with turntable and works very well. No hesitation in recommending this to others.

Once charged setting it up is a doddle. If you’re new to bose go for it, if you’re not new to bose you’ll have already bought one or a revolve+. The sound is typically bose. Full on sound, it’s amazing what they can do with small enclosures and the grill at the rear is probably the base reflex port.

Out of the box plugged in and connected using the app in five minutes. Half the size i expected, but the sound is really good as you would expect from bose. Bought the blue one, love the colour. Not one of the cheapest bluetooth speakers, but bought cheap last time, it didn’t last.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • for sometime now in my room and am still amazed when I play anything through it
  • Little box big sound!
  • Great sound and look

You can’t go wrong with bose. From speakers to headphones 🎧 sound quality is always great and nothing changes with this.

I bought this for my boyfriends birthday. Ended up making him open it early to try it out. The sound is loud and crisp. The design is sleek and have a great velvety matte finish.

Loved it as soon as i saw it. The sound quality is very good. Light weight and easy to carry around. I have had bose products before. But this one delivers as promised.

It’s bose, what can be wrong with them.

Sound quality is very good albeit a little ‘bassy’ if placed near a wall. Ideal for streaming background music at dinner parties if paired with a smart phone or ipad etc. I downloaded the spotify app and it works perfectly.

Very petite light and fantastic sound from this little device. Will use on holiday round the pool as water resistant. Purchased a case with is fab.

Great for music in the garden without filling the whole of the house with what you are playing.

I bought to use in my kitchen whilst cooking, and for taking on my hols. A note of caution though, it is fairly heavy if you want/need to carry it around.

Fantasic little system sounds amazing.

A quality product that is a perfect partner to spotify. I even watch films in bed on my ipad using it as a speaker.

As a purchaser of bose products this meets their usual high quality standards. Easy to set up and use but be aware it will not pair with my original soundlink portable speaker. Annoying as this wasn’t clear in the descriptor, suggesting that it was incompatible with all bose productd.

Excellent packaging, quick delivery and wonderful sound.

I was not planning to spend that much but decided to go for a good brand. So easy to set up and i use it daily. The sound is good enough given the size. Enough for the house and to have a small party in your leaving room. Perfect to take it with you in your bag and listen to the music in a park for example.

I have been using a bose soundlink mini ii for sometime now in my room and am still amazed when i play anything through it. So much so that i was looking to buy another for in the bedroom to save me carrying it around and relinking it to different devices. They are no longer available, so i bought this instead. I spent almost as much time unpacking it as setting it up. It sounds great straight out of the box, and this will get even better as it runs in. It doesn’t have quite the depth or separation between the ranges that the mini has, but then the mini cost a lot more. The color is weighty and well built and a really engaging listen. If i need another speaker i will buy this model again without hesitation.

Bought as a present for my grandson, he loves it, fantastic sound and portable.

The sound is spot on, great bass sound and clear speech, the auto set up is great too. This really is an impressive piece of kit for the money paid, would recommend.

    Excellent quality sound from a small box, i have compared it to two cheaper similar speakers but they do not compare to bose’s superior sound quality, connection to devises is quick and easy, a friendly voice tells you when you’re paired. I use the speaker with mine and my wifes phone but you also got a small jack plug socket on the side for non bluetooth devises. The quality is what you would expect from bose.

      • Bought a second one by mistake and decided not to return it as the sound quality is excellent. So good we sold our bose wave. Only shame is you cannot pair two of them to one device at the same time.

    Modified cover, think it’s bounce proof with a beautiful sound, a small speaker with an enormous capability. A true tone, and long lasting charge cycle. We have one in our holiday home in spain, and now another at home in the uk.

    This speaker is easy to set up, it looks okay, but whilst the sound is clear and crisp the bass is much too promenant and in my view spoils the sound to such a degree i can only rate it 2 stars. There is no adjustment for bass or treble and even adjusting the bass/treble on my echo spot makes no difference. Surely it can’t be beyond bose to update their “bose connect” app to allow some adjustment. I’ve only had the speaker a couple of hours and my initial reaction is that of great disappointment.

      • I am currently on my second speaker all being well it will last longer than the first one. I would like to thank amazon support team in their prompt response when i had trouble with my first speaker which shrugged off the mortal coil and could not be brought back. The problem was that it would no longer charge. Up to now the replacement has been fine and it is hoped that it will last longer than three months. I have had no problems with connecting my laptop or my phone to the speaker and whilst a little heavy on the bass side the sound quality is what i expected from bose, hence the four stars. All being well my first speaker was a one off friday afternoon model and that i will get a number of years service from the new one.

    • Had a friend show this to me and i had to get one for camping trips as well as every day use. The other half teaches music and uses this a lot to demonstrate songs/music to her class too.

    I’ve got the mini soundlink and got this for my daughter and it’s brilliant. Battery lasts ages, sound is excellent, solid piece of kit and “splash proof”.

      • I own the mk1 version of this, owned it for 4 years. It pairs easily with all devices from iphones to laptop. Pressing the bluetooth button, it will cycle round all the local bluetooth devices, picking out the one you want to use. I managed to pair 2 devices but after that no further connections possible. The speaker seems to stop broadcasting. I bought 2 of these mk2’s vainly believing i use them together, but even the bose app seems not to be easy. The problem is in the main though that i cannot pair the iphone to both speakers. I’ve whatsapp’d you to give you one more chance to respond. I don’t have the time to mess about with this stuff.
