Bose SoundLink Mini

 

Although it lacks a speakerphone, the Bose SoundLink Mini is by far the best-sounding compact Bluetooth speaker.

Best sound in its class and beyond; Excellent design and build quality; Loud for its size

No playback controls; Lacks speakerphone and USB charging

The SoundLink Mini's lack of speakerphone capabilities may deter some, and others will gripe about the lack of onboard controls or the device's ability to charge via USB. However, nothing approaches the SoundLink Mini's sonic versatility and full, rich...

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker

 

Portable Bluetooth speakers now have a host of features, from apps to speakerphones -- and some are even waterproof. Ultimately, though, the speakers have to sound good. The $199 Bose SoundLink Mini forgoes all of these niceties, instead focusing...

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker review

 

It's a good thing Bose has its logo splayed across the front of its new ultracompact wireless Bluetooth speaker, the SoundLink Mini, because if it didn't, you just might think it was made by Apple.

The Bose SoundLink Mini is a very sleek, very compact wireless Bluetooth speaker that sounds very good for its small size. It also has excellent build quality, with a unibody aluminum enclosure, and includes a charging cradle that you can leave plugged...

Fairly pricey; no speakerphone capabilities; protective case costs extra.

While it's fairly expensive at $200, the Bose SoundLink Mini is one of few standout products in the ultracompact wireless speaker category, featuring a top-notch design and very good sound for its tiny size.

Bose SoundLink Mini

 

The Bose SoundLink Mini continues Bose's line of excellent Bluetooth speakers, this time in a smaller form and with a more affordable price tag.

Room-filling sound. Satisfying midrange and high-end. Solid, sturdy construction. Handy charging cradle.

Doesn't charge through micro USB. Bass isn't particularly powerful. No speakerphone function.

Conclusion The Bose SoundLink Mini is an impressive little powerhouse that produces clear, solid sound. It might be lacking in the bass punch the SoundLink II and other larger, more expensive speakers offer, but for its size and price it offers great...

Bose SoundLink Mini Review

 

The $199 Bose SoundLink Mini is a very good choice for those looking for excellent audio quality in a small, if heavy, Bluetooth speaker. If you plan to listen indoors, it creates the illusion that the sound is coming from a much bigger speaker....

Excellent audio ; Wide distribution of sound ; Booming bass

No speakerphone ; No weatherproofing ; Proprietary charging cable

The Bose SoundLink Mini boasts excellent audio quality and booming bass for a speaker its size, but it’s lacking some features.

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker Review

 

We've had a chance to spend some time with Bose's SoundLink Mini, their ultra-compact portable bluetooth speaker. It's priced at Php 13,000.00, which is much more expensive than the other bluetooth speakers we've reviewed here in PTB (if not the most)....

It isn't cheap, but the Bose SoundLink Mini is an excellent-sounding Bluetooth speaker that is especially useful for those who travel frequently.

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker

 

While Apple has relentlessly replaced its iDevices every year or two, audio accessory developer Bose commonly goes in the opposite direction, keeping "new" speaker designs all but unchanged for years. Rarely does the company trot out a completely new...

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker

 

The Bose SoundLink Mini is one of the best sounding portable Bluetooth speakers on the market

Excellent, compact design ; Good sound quality ; Included charging dock

Doesn't charge via micro-USB ; Aluminium finish prone to light scratches ; Accessories are expensive

The Bose SoundLink Mini may not be the loudest portable Bluetooth speaker on the market, but it's one of the best sounding and really packs a punch considering its compact size.
