Sound quality is pretty good and it goes surprisingly loud for the size without a loss in quality. I also like that it turns itself off after a few minutes if not used which conserves the battery power so it has lasted me ages on one charge. To connect, i just select it on the bluetooth list on my phone and it wakes up. I did buy the micro as well which is not quite as good but they are pretty effective filling a room or two. I have a sonos cinema set up at home which is obviously better but it cost about £2k so it should be but you only really get a big benefit in a large room at high volumes. For smaller rooms at lower volumes this bose is great.
Bit hesitant about the shape at first but bought it to replace my soundlink mini ii which got the flashing red light of death annoyingly after two years of use. Almost lost faith in bose if it wasn’t for my husband’s soundlink still going strong. This one is definitely better than the previous incarnations. It sounds wonderful but is very bassy so i don’t have it up too loud because of the neighbors. It’s gorgeous though and takes up less space on the windowsil than most other speakers due to its shape.
Good sound quality, easy to use, but expensive compared to equivalent compeition.
This is one quality bit of kit. Trouble is, i don’t bother using my other hifi stuff now because the sound from this one is great even though it’s small.
Generally to speak the sound quality seems like good, but it also has some weaknesses in some ranges of music. From the perspective of the portable to say the production is fine. Sometimes the response of bluetooth is a little bit slow. It looks like pretty good so far and it needs to be tested further.
Compact, user friendly with usual bose quality sound.
By far the best portable speaker i’ve used.
If you are bose lover and don’t want to compromise on the sound quality and need a small portable one to cary around, then this is the one you are looking. Awesome sound quality with crisp and clear sound and powerful one. Good enough to handle if you want to put in your living room, dining room or bed room or study room .
Amazing sound from a small speaker.
Amazing piece of kit, the sound is fab and works well everywhere.
Great sound quality, neat design. Only downer is connecting two speakers together took ages due to a 4 hour update that was required.
Sound quality is not as good as the previous bose – which is still available so buy it although its a little more expensive. I bought this on offer so not so bad but i wouldn’t buy it again.
I have bose mains powered speakers indoors and wanted a bluetooth speaker that’s portable for use outside, with great sound quality. I was dubious that a small speaker would deliver realistic and loud sound. This way exceeds my expectations. Solid, smooth and robust looking, well balanced and no seams in the grille. It’s a metal case with rubberised top and base which look and feel good. Control buttons areclearly marked and responsive. Plugged in to charge and within a couple of minutes paired 4 separate devices. (just remember to switch off bluetooth on paired device before pairing the next).
Feels good, looks good, sounds amazing. I used it in a gym with over 50 people and it sounded amazing. There is no other portable speaker. I have friends with all variations and this is hands down the best.
Sound quality i’ve only given a 4 due to the volume not being quite as loud as i’d like, but that would be my only grumble. So glad we got this, can have in the garden, bathroom, any room. Connectivity is easy, very portable & we’ve taken it abroad in case with no issues. Good battery life, easy to charge. A tad more expensive than other offers out there but i’d say worth it if you’re looking for quality & something that lasts.
Absolutely amazing as expected, i have to admit my son got one of these for christmas and i was impressed. It’s not just the sound that’s impressive, the build quality is superb. Highly recommended and worth every penny.
Great sound quality, as expected from bose. One of the few speakers that allows the flexibility to use as a docked speaker for a mac or pc workstation (with charging cradle) and also use as a portable bluetooth speaker around the house or out and about.
Returned after a few months as the same thing happened to this as the mini 2 i had. The battery wouldnt hold its charge after a couple of months and i was faced with the light just blinking red. I would never buy another bose product.
Well, we got this as we thought that being a bose and all it would be unbeatable. We also have a wonderboom (bought at £64 on offer at £50 in black friday) and so wish we would have bought another wonderboom at nearly a quarter of the cost of the bose soundlink. Although i am happy at the quality of sound and volume, the wonderboom is a tad better. The only bonus of this speaker is you can get a charging cradle, but wonderboom comes with charger that you can plug in if you need to. My faith in bose has been knocked and if i was to recommend a powerful wireless speaker i would say get a wonderboom instead and save your money.
My son was absolutely loved it. Worth paying the extra for a quality product.
You pay more but l can’t fault it good on every aspect.
