Great Sound Quality For A Tiny Speaker

By Randi

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker:

I bought this speaker about a year ago, very satisfied with the sound quality, off course not to be compared with a bigger speaker, for example, my Companion III. I always have this speaker in my backpack on my business trip. Amazing sound quality for a tiny fellow. My disappointment is only to its connection, it disconnect frequently and it very annoying. A problem that I wouldn't expect from a product with such high price.

SMALL BUT POWERFUL

By Retchief

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker:

I recently purchased this speaker, and have been very pleased with the quality of sound and volume capability. As with all of the Bose products the workmanship and quality are obvious. The weight alone tells you this is a quality design. Built to last and stand up to anything I will do with it. When I can afford the purchase I plan on moving up to the full size Soundlink.....

Awesome sound, terrible software issues

By MrsO

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker:

Haved owned this for over 1 year, love the awesome sound & portability. Sadly with a 70% charge it got stuck with red flashing light indicating battery protection mode/low battery. I plugged into my imac and updated software & hope it will be more stable. After googling, I have discovered this seems to be a common issue. Fabulous sound but buyer beware...

Huge sound, small size.

By Steiny88

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker:

I knew I would get a great product from Bose, but the sound this makes has such depth and clarity that I have a hard time believing the sound is actually coming from this small frame. A lot of bluetooth speakers are either tiny and thin sounding or combine this tinny sound with a rough and exaggerated bass. The Bose speakers have a wide range and the sound at all frequencies is very clear and accurate. The only issue I had was with the initial pairing with my iPhone. It took a minute to get it to connect, but now it recognizes it immediately and pairs instantly. Its hard to judge a speaker without listening to it, but these are worth the price you pay. I'm planning on buying another as a gift.

Poor Bluetooth connection

By Tgudel

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker:

I bought this speaker one week ago and used it for the first time yesterday. I am extremely disappointed by the Bluetooth connection. The poor connection causes the sound to be awfully choppy. I have connected to my iPhone 6 and my MacBook Pro and on each tried streaming music online and from my device (music / iTunes directly). I thought it might be my wifi connection that was causing the sound choppiness but this is ruled out by playing music directly off of my device which would have no lag time. I heard great things about this speaker and bought it because I enjoyed using my Uncle's at the beach. It looks pretty and I love the size but not being able to play a full song without skipping pieces every few seconds or minutes is not going to work for me :( If you're looking for a smooth playing speaker without interruptions to your music I would have to advise you to look elsewhere. Ps this is an addition to another review which did not post in full.

Firmware update ruined soundstage

By Hifinut

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker:

I have enjoyed this speaker for five months. Having enjoyed many high end audio systems through the years, I was more amazed each day at how well this little speaker presents the music. I have an iPhone 6s Plus that compared to the iPhone 5, has a really good sounding DAC. It made my SoundLink Color sound much better, as did the firmware update for it late last year. I listen to anything musical. Abba, Al Jolson, Jazz, Country, Rock, Movie Music, Classical, New Age, etc. My music list spans 8 decades. I use an app called Equalizer Pro (mix1009) by Chun-koo Park that allows me to play lossless flac CD and high resolution files so the speaker is getting the best source material via Bluetooth...sorry Chun-koo, but I have all equalization turned off. The app handles my 19+ gig of music flawlessly with a very user-friendly interface. Prior to updating my SoundLink Mini II firmware from '.3 to '.4 four days ago, I listened five to six hours a day enjoying my music's sound stage...I am very familiar with the music and how it sounds on different speakers and amplifiers. The little Soundlink Mini II with '.3 firmware presented mixes pretty accurately...for example the echo in Katie Melua's "I Cried For You" from her live concert 900+ feet down in one of three legs in a gas well rig in the North Sea...Chicago's Day & Night with its bloated bass...Chris Botti's delicate trumpet work on "When I Fall In Love." And Daft Punk from the movie Tron "The Son of Flynn" or "Derezzed" at 80% volume. I spent a year and a half tuning my sound room with bass traps and recognize the '.4 firmware's sound signature...pitched up bass, a bump between 4K & 5k. Dave Brubeck's "Take 5" the clarinet sounds sharp, the string base notes are pitched up, the drum solo in to have exaggerated snap but the great airy sound of the drums themselves sounds boxy...symbols no longer have that delicate ring...they hiss. I have read most of the 200+ reviews for this speaker on this site. There are at least three repeating user insights...the speaker sounds better than past Wave Radios, better than SoundLink III, but tends to sound "hollow" when taken outdoors. The amazing feat this speaker performs is how well it works in the various rooms I play it in. The very frequencies that this speaker do not augment is the reason it sounds so good in doors...those same frequencies tend to disperse quickly outside leaving the SoundLink Mini II's sound a bit thin. I think that may be some of the reasoning behind the sound signature change. For instance, I work in a noisy environment. It is a waste to use this speaker there because it does not play as loud...those little drivers are working their magic producing a greater range of balanced frequencies...I use my SoundLink Color...yup, I carry both with me...the Color's sound is not as good because it plays fewer more focused frequencies loud...which is also why the Color does not sound as good in doors. Folks, if you want loud go with the SoundLink Color...it is more musical than the competition at its price point...I know, I own several of the competition's speakers. The SoundLink Mini II with the '.3 firmware is not a partying speaker. It is a speaker that can produce a consistent, pretty darn good sound stage in a variety of rooms. It is an admiral achievement. Let's leave the playing loud thing to the SoundLink Color and SoundLink III. Those of you who own non updated (firmware '.3) SoundLink Mini II's, I envy you. I am 60 and have spent a lot of money chasing good sound. That speaker you have IMHO represents the most enjoyable, best built, user friendly (six volume levels between each of Apples's volume levels) portable audio speaker made to date by anyone. For a smile, listen to Al Jolson's "I'm Sitting on Top of The World". Don't even get me started on how good this speaker plays at really low volume...highs and lows are there. In my opinion, firmware '.3 earns a solid 5 stars; firmware '.4 earns 2 stars. Dear Bose, the '.4 update gives the speaker more punch, it plays louder...but a pan flute sounds sharp on certain notes...string bass solos, each note is no longer the same volume...one or two notes/frequencies are louder...kind of like the one note somba...Karen Carpenters voice, so hard to get right, was so right with firmware '.3 but squeaky with firmware '4...these past 4 days have been sonically miserable...please give me back my speaker...possibly the best small speaker Bose has ever made...and I have been listening since Bose 901's.
