    Astounding Lows For Size

    Posted .

    This speaker was the obvious choice for me after I had compared it to the other bluetooth speakers in it's price range like the JBL Charge and the Beats Pill. But what really blew me away was the astounding amount of bass produced from this incredibly small system. This one feature sets this speaker far beyond it's competitors. So how does Bose do it? It comes down to three important factors that you don't get from other systems at this size. The first component that adds such bass is the shear surface area given to the woofers on the dock. The front and back is almost completely covered by woofer inside the grill. The passive radiators really enable the two drivers to dish out all they have and extend the low frequency response. The second feature that seems to add bass is what Bose is notorious for doing and is deceptive but completely genius. At normal listening levels and more quiet listening levels, Bose will automatically eq's the bass higher to give you a more full sound, but then as you turn up the volume the bass levels off to protect the woofers. Bose has been doing this for years in it's speaker systems and it's always set them apart from their competitors in portable audio. The third and final defining feature that helps dish out the bass is something I just recently noticed. The way this thing is built is completely oriented around resonation with whatever surface this monster sits on. It is very dense and heavy but the base of the enclosure is made out of a strange, thick rubber that not only grips onto the surface it sits on, but also passes vibrations from the speakers to the surface very efficiently. But what does this mean for sound quality? It means that the bass can resonate extremely well on whatever surface you place it on. If you set the Soundlink Mini on a solid oak table in the corner of a room, the bass is going to smack you square in the face. This doesn't mean there is significantly less bass when you pick it up off of the given surface, I'm just saying it's another factor that adds to the intensity of full sound that you simply don't get with other speakers in this range or hardly anywhere in docks. Now I've only talked about bass because it is very hard to achieve a full sound with something this size, but trust me, this thing doesn't lack anywhere else. The highs are surprisingly good for Bose's standards but that's simply because the speakers are practically the size of tweeters already. My only gripe in sound quality, is that the mid is lost at a decent distance with this speaker, but a full sounding midrange is literally impossible with the given size of these speakers. The mid bass punch will carry surprisingly far along with the highs. This thing will fill up any room with sound in your average house. The battery life is surprising on the Soundlink Mini; it'll go the distance. Bose didn't mess around with the battery on this bad boy. It's got your standard bluetooth, which can be a little screwy at times but you're going to encounter the same issues with any bluetooth device. I fell in love with this thing whenI listened to my friend’s Soundlink Mini. I got my hands on it for a whole day and played my own music, I was laughing at how incredible it sounded. It continued to surprise me song after song, yet it is so little. You can practically put this thing in a baggy pocket and go anywhere with it. It is absolutely gorgeous in person. Very modern look with the brushed aluminum, which matches the Mac brushed aluminum nicely. I think it’s the best looking speaker on the market for it’s range. If you need something portable don't waste your time looking into other brands, Bose did their research and absolutely crushed the competition here.

    After listening to the Bose Soundlink II i was sure i wanted one, but when I put the Soundlink mini next to it and used the same music off the same device then the decision was easy. The Mini in my opinion had better sound, I also love the small form factor. As with all Bose products the sound is just amazing and it's actually hard to believe it until you hear it. The sound is balanced from Mozart to the Dead Kennedy's the small form factor reproduces the sound at the highest level. I was amazed at the battery life, i get way more than 8 hours on average to loud settings. The charging base is a nice addition and makes recharging every night easy. One thing that was a plus for me was the smaller size then the bigger soundlinks. All aluminum case makes for a beefy weight on the mini, and it gives it a nice look sitting next to my mac mini on my desk. I highly recommend the mini!

    Samfrantastic!

    I just got the speaker last night. I paired it with my iPhone 4S with no drama at all. The speaker came with a partial charge, but I was able to plug it in to charge it and listen to it right out of the box. I listened to it for about three hours to wring it out and all of the various music styles sounded great. Crystal clear sounds and awesome base response. Much better that any other speaker in the $200 price range or less. Today I tried to pair it with my laptop. It wouldn't. There was a hitch with needing to update my Bluetooth drivers. I needed to get Dell on the phone - we all know what a pleasure that is - NOT. After two hours they got me straightened out with the updated drivers and VOILA! The speaker paired with my laptop too! It also sound terrific with that source. I tried them at all sound levels and max volume on the iPhone and on the speakers is too loud for our living room. They are plenty loud enough. I narrowed my choice down between the SoundLink Mini and the UE Boom. I was hesitant to go with these speakers as they don't have speaker phone capability and some of the fancy features of some of the alternatives, like iPhone app to control the speakers. I ultimately decided sound quality was most critical. I thought the optional carry case looked a bit mickey mouse for the price. That's my only negative comment. I will probably not use the docking station and left it in the box that is now stored away. If you are like me and want great sound, these little speakers are absolutely worth the price of admission! Buy them - you will not be disappointed!

    In one word, FANTASTIC

    I have several Bose speakers, including the SoundLink II, but this one became my favorite after about 30 minutes of listening. It is not only well made but it's small and sounds great! The sound filled up the room like it was a speaker 5 times it's size. Here is a review I made on youtube if you like to see.

    Heavy, but worth the extra weight.

    Posted .

    Amazing sound for the size. I was initially leaning towards the Jambox Mini, but after listening to both in Best Buy, I decided to go with the Soundlink Mini. Even a non-audiophile, like myself, can appreciate the great sound that the Soundlink Mini puts out. My only gripe is that it is a little heavy. I would probably not carry it in my computer bag, but it's definitely a good size to put in a carry-on suitcase. Overall, the sound quality more than makes up for the extra weight. No problem connecting to my Windows Phone and Surface 2. MicroUSB charging capability would have been nice, but the charger is so light and small (the plugs even fold), it's not really an issue. Plus, it charges the device faster than a microUSB charger would be able to. I also bought the orange solid case, which looks great on the device. Overall, a great product.

    Deep bass, small size

    Prior to get this speaker, I read a lot of reviews. Then bought it online, thinking that I should be aware that the sound described by others couldn't be as good as they said, for a matter of size. I was surprised when I played a Jamiroquai deep-bass song. Believe me, it won't fill a living room, but it's an awesome producto to enjoy music on a counter or table among friends.

    Purchased a cover for my new Bose Mini Soundlink Speaker. Great Quality - great product. Tight fit which makes it a little hard to install but just follow the included instructions. Once it is on, it works great. Really looks good and I feel like my speaker is well protected in case something bad should happen. Highly recommend!

    I needed a blue tooth speaker to take on the front porch, got a Sony boom box for the summer. You can't beat this, it is amazing to hear the deep bass along with the balanced mid range and high notes. I take it to work and am able to play it low and it delivers excellent sound as well. No regrets!

    These covers provide excellent protection for your Bose Soundlink Mini II. Love all the new colors. I actually returned the red and got the darker red color. Looks great on my silver mini.
