Since the Bose Company was founded in 1964, it has earned a solid reputation for audio excellence built on its dedication to research and continuous improvement. The review product, the Bose Soundlink Mini Wireless Mobile Speaker which is aimed at the portable Bluetooth speaker market, shows all the hallmarks of its Bose heritage.

The diminutive Bose Soundlink Mini Wireless Mobile Speaker delivers a superior sound yet still fits in your hand.

This ultra-compact speaker connects wirelessly to Bluetooth devices such as smartphones and tablets, so you can have games and videos at your fingertips and listen to your music wherever you go.

Weighing 0.67 kg, the Bose Soundlink Wireless Mobile Speaker is so lightweight and compact it fits in your palm, or in your bag. With its distinctive sleek profile and low centre of gravity the speaker can be positioned almost anywhere you choose without risk of toppling over. The lithium-ion rechargeable battery delivers anything up to seven hours of music listening. Thanks to the design of the charging cradle supplied, home listening can continue whilst you recharge the battery. This can take less than three hours with a fully discharged battery.

Bose Soundlink Mini User Review

This is the rig I have been looking for – something truly portable that punches well above its weight. I was undecided at first, with so many other choices, before taking the final plunge. Out of the box, just the feel of the Soundlink Mini makes you want to smile. This is the real deal, not the feeble portable speakers you often associate with the concept of mobile sound. This product oozes quality. Pairing up takes all of 20 seconds, and you’re good to go. The audio quality is stunning. If you are used to distorted music from battery-driven speakers, this is a step into the future. The treble is crisp and clean with a nice bass boom and no distortion. You will be amazed. The Bose tech guys should take a bow.
