Bose SoundLink Micro tooth Speaker – Midnight – Great little speaker

This little unit packs a powerful and high quality punch. I bought solely on the reviews that i found on-line, and i am extremely pleased with the build quality – the fact that it’s waterproof ( although it doesn’t float on water) and if caught in the rain you know that the device won’t be ruined. Charging is quite fast via a micro usb cable (supplied) and the volume is adequate for my needs. The casing is a contoured and sleek silicone covering that protects it against bumps and the odd drops and i have every confidence that it will be reliable in the performance department for some time. I’ve now ordered a 2nd unit to take advantage of it’s ability to wirelessly pair together for full stereo sound – and i’m advised that there’s a bonus of increased volume when paired. This device has an ideal small footprint to discreetly hide in our conservatory whilst banging out fairytale in new york for the umpteenth time. I love it, i recommend it and well done bose.

Brilliant little speaker, sounds much better than considerably bigger off’brand speakers. Quite enough for my medium sized living room. Where i use it most is while commuting on my bike. Simple secure mounting and goes loud enough to hear over traffic. Used in some torrential rain, snow and hail and no problems at all. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Solid speaker in soft sturdy rubber package, deep portable sound for outdoors, don’t need to worry if dropped, good grip, connectivity is actually amazing, updates you on connect, battery left etc.

Unreal, how they get a sound like this from something so small is mind blowing.

Neat, portable, convenient, bluetooth speaker and the sound is bigger than its diminutive size.

It is small to fit in any bag, loud enough and good quality sound, water proof and great design. And worth it the moneythere isn’t an aux port, only bluetooth but it work very well.

  • Its great and here’s why
  • The perfect size for a portable speaker without compromising sound
  • Can’t believe the fullness of sound in such tiny package

This is exactly what bose claim, the best sounding speaker for its size. In fact i prefer this to many other speakers physically bigger and ought to be outclassing its tiny form factor. Obviously you are paying a little for the bose name and quality, which i think is fair enough, but with that you get their sound signature, which does make for a pleasant eq that doesn’t leave any holes across the spectrum the way others do in exaggerated upper bass or scooped mids. Normally i really dislike ‘mono boxes’ however good they are but i dont find that with this one at all, surprisingly. I did find that however with its bigger brother (the soundlink colour ii). I think the dsp has been really well tuned and this good eq is definitely all contributing to that. Now please don’t expect to have the bass blow your mind, of course there are physical limitations that even bose cant work around (yet) but regardless you’ll find it hard not to smile at the performance when the bassline drops. What makes this so wonderful for me, as i travel an awful lot, is the size and weight. There is almost no excuse not to throw it in your bag however little you are traveling with, and the battery life is plenty enough at 6 hours. The magic in this unit is when you’re chilling out and just have it sat in the room on the table.

So pleased with this speaker. Took it to southeast asia for 2 weeks, used it constantly.

First class quality and sound.

The speaker has a superb sound for its size. I use it tethered to my phone by bluetooth and when i open my phone in the morning the speaker starts up mentions the battery state and is ready to play. If i don’t want it on i can easily turn off. The other great innovation is that after initiating bluetooth with a device, if you then activate the device and press the soundlink in the available connections, it turns on the soundlink speaker remotely.

Can’t believe how good the sound is – simple to use – connects very easily with i pad and i phone with very clear instructions from the bose app.

Over the moon with this product.

It’s hard to describe good sound, but in my opinion this very portable speaker has it. I think it’s loud enough for most situations too. It feels like it might handle a bit of wear and tear. It connects via bluetooth quickly, without any trouble. It has a very stable connection with good range. The bose connect app is not needed to connect to the speaker, but it is needed for downloading and installing firmware updates. (i found new firmware straight after installing the app)overall, i’m really pleased with this speaker and glad i bought it.

Superb sound as you would expect from bose. Much louder than i expected. I took it on holiday and had it onall day by the pool. Chargedit every 3rd day when it was down to 20% , very impressive battery life. For the money this is fantastic and has the added bonus of being waterproof. Perfect for popping in your hand luggage when gpoing abroad.

Considering its size, the sound is impressive. I’ve heard many speakers this size or even bigger that sound thin and have little bass. I don’t know how bose do it, but this does have a surprisingly good bass and the overall sound is very good. The size is just about right for a portable speaker. Operating it is very easy and it’s simple to pair. If you have multiple devices connected to it, you can control those connections further with the bose connect app. Switching it on and off, it a simple press of a button. You also have the usual volume up and down and pause/play/skip button. I’ve not ran it to 0% but i used it for five hours once and it got down to 20%.

This is amazing bought as a gift for my hubby. The sound quality is just brilliant – it’s the size of the palm of your hand yet sounds like a full on stereo system when playing – we have a very decent sony bluetooth / ipod player that sits on the cabinet but this little beauty sounds 10 times better – sone may say it’s expensive for a bluetooth player but you pay for the quality of the sound and this beats the rest hands down.

I am delighted with my purchase.

Crisp, balanced sound and unmatched bass for its size

Fabulous sound from this little speaker. 🔊 how bose have done this i don’t know?. Great for traveling, holidays etc. Really powerful and quality sound, and so small too.👍 it tells you the percentage charge in the battery when you switch it on plus you can use it while it’s charging also really easy to pair with your phone etc.

Brilliant sound from this small compact bose travel speaker.

Seamless interfacing with nose connect is an added advantage. Definitely the best bluetooth speakers i had in recent times.

I like this 🙂 favourite bose product so far.

I own several bluetooth speakers and wanted something i can take on holiday. Small compact and beach ready. I was viewing a review on youtube one evening and bought it afterwards. Upon arrival i updated the firmware. Best to connect the speaker to a pc and upgrade via bose website which is fully automated instead off he app. The app was showing 1h20mins for the upgrade vs 5 mins via laptop. The sound is very good and full even at lower listening levels. This thing pumps some serious base out of such small package. Crank it up and the bass reduces slightly to compensate for the overall clearness of the sound but still impressive and compared to my jbl charge this is way better in terms of sound. Charging is super quick as well and the battery lasts forever which i can’t say about the bo a1 which i returned after getting 1,5h out of it.

Just received my bose speaker very well packed downloaded bose app plugged usb lead in and paired it with my sony xperia phone and it sounds amazing. I already own a larger bose speaker for my tv so this is for my bedroom highly recommend this speaker bose are the best ive ever had love it.

Waterproof from the inside out (IPX7), with soft, rugged exterior

I expected this product to be good, but i was still surprised by the sound quality that a speaker this size can produce. Very pleased with my purchase, it’s absolutely ideal for travelling as it takes up literally no space and is very light. The fact that it is water proof is an added bonus for around the pool.

Bose, lives upto the name in product and sound quality.

I love it so much i’ve dropped it off of my bag a lot of times had it drenched in water still works amazing,i take it everywhere i go strapped on my backpack.

I cannot fault this product, amazing sound quality even by the pool. Charges well and lasts a long time. Setting up was relatively easy too.

It goes with me all around the house and in the garden. Ideal for outdoor activities. The battery has a long life so doesn’t need recharging often.

As an avid fan of the sonos around my house, i bought this for holiday etc. The sound for the size of the speaker is outstanding. We actually listened to one in the bose shop before buying this and it is amazing.

Amazing sound quality for such a small speaker. My daughter got it for christmas and loves it. It is not too heavy which means you can carry it around at ease. Very happy with this purchase.

Tear-resistant strap to take it wherever you go

Great speaker, good sound for the size of the speaker. It’s not quite the same quality as the more higher priced range of bose speakers, but excellent for the price and size.

Nice feel to it, heavy duty and you don’t have to worry about scratching or water damage, sound is brill, works perfect as a google home device as well, extremely happy.

I chose this bluetooth speaker because the specifications seemed ideal for my requirements. I was looking for a stylish speaker to hook up to my phone so that i could listen to music on holiday, especially in my hotel or on the beach. I particularly wanted a speaker that was robust enough to take travelling, and could withstand the risks of knocks, or moisture. For me sound quality is top of the list, and for my purposes this speaker has sufficient volume and clarity and definitely met my expectations. I managed to source a case for the speaker, in a matching colour orange, so this was a bonus as it provides additional protection when not in use, and it keeps the cable secure. Bose is a renowned brand and for me this was the icing on the cake, as the purchase price seemed reasonable for such a quality product.

I use it daily for conference calls at home, much better audio than from my iphone and speaker picks my voice up clearly. Great sound and strap it to my bike when working out in doors. Battery life is good and connecting is pretty easy plus auto updates through the app. It’s also pretty robust and has a nice weight to it. Overall very happy with purchase and recommend.

Very satisfied with product and delivery.

I personally love bose equipment, but this one stands out for me as it one tough little speaker. I mainly use it outside in all weathers and it has stood up to everything so far. Long battery life and great quality sound.

Wireless Bluetooth pairing with up to 6 hours of play time from a rechargeable, lithium-ion battery

I cannot believe the sound off this for the size of it. I will be buying another one it is that good.

Purchased this given the great reviews and i am amazed. Such a small speaker but provides great sound quality. Very happy with the purchase.

Get one, you’ll be glad you did.

I just love the speaker and feel that the quality is great for its size. However, the charging cable would not fit into the speaker and i had to use my samsung charger to charge it. The cable is white and the usb end is fine but the end into the speaker is just too large. Would recommend speaker, sad about the cable.

First bluetooth speaker and am very impressed with the build quality and sound. Before purchasing was not sure was something i would use but am finding i am using all the time, shower, kitchen also using as radio speaker through my phone as better quality than my radio. Will definitely be using when go on holidays.

This little wonder packs a serious punch,it delivers sound clarity even at a higher volume,however as a soul music lover with heavy bass lines the bose micro suffers a little distortion but not to the point of irritating the ear drums. The bose micro sounds better when placed in a corner as the sound bounces off the wall giving a deeper sound. I will definitely buy a second speaker and connect via the app for stereophonic sound. Highly recommended piece of kit,well worth it.

I love these handy but strong speakers. Enjoying the music whille cleaning home, taking shower and gym time. Its amazing sound quality and quickly get connects to bluetooth.

Arrived before dur date very easy to you happy with sound.

Quality and volume of sound. Made 1000 times better when two are paired.

Took this with me on my diving holiday to the red sea. Life and soul of the party on the liverboard boat. Great sound and good battery life.

    • Don’t know how they do it, but the quality of this little speaker is so impressive. Tones are clear and superb bass. The speaker feels nice and solid and has a “good weight about it”. Sit this little baby on your table and the sounds will just come out in a quality expected of a much bigger speaker. Turn the volume up and you will start to annoy the neighbours am going to buy another, so i can use the ‘party mode’ 🙂 love it.

    • Amazing sound quality for something so small. Bought it for a holiday spent around the pool so was unsure how it would sound outdoors, but was fantastic.

  4. Excitedly received the bose soundlink mini as wanted a good quality great sounding shower speaker (i normally listen to music on my i phone 7 resting on the toilet cistern). It looked a quality item out of the box so i plugged it in to charger cable and linked up the phone and speaker using bluetooth (all very straightforward and easy). I then selected a track and pressed play. What the hell is this noise?the bass sounds were so distorted and the trebles sounded distant. I played around with the equalizer settings on the phone and tried all the different settings and still the poor sound kept coming. I know gary barlow isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but even so he deserves better than this speaker. (sorry a little joke there – i didn’t listen to gary :-d). The distortion just made listening unbearable, turning the volume down did help a little but then that defeats the object of getting a shower speaker as the voiume was so low that you wouldn’t be able to hear it whilst having a shower. Its been out of the box no more than 10 minutes and i’ve already repackaged and delivered it back via the post office for a refund.

    • A great portable speaker from bose, battery lasts quite well and has a rubberised protective coating. The bass and sound quality is awesome. If you place it in a corner of a room you forget how small it is.

  8. I bought one of these speakers last year and was absolutely blown away by the performance and battery life. I also use this a a speakphone for telephones calls and the quality is amazing. Normally the other party is aware that you are on speaker, but not so with this. I then called in at the bose shop and heard these working in ‘stereo’ using the bose app. The sound is unbelievable, even more so given the size. Whenever friends have listened to music that i have been playing they have no only commented they have rushed out and bought a pair. If you have one of these call into the bose shop and listen to them playing as a pair. You will not only be amazed you will immediately purchase one.
