Our take on the Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker

by Woody Sherman
Bose

Big sound, anywhere you are

There are two essential things you need to know about the Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker. First, it's small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. And second, it sounds way, way fuller than it looks. Trust us on this. Its sound will fill a lot of living spaces with room to spare.

The Bose® SoundLink® Min <em>Bluetooth</em> speaker lets you take your music anywhere you are

The Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker lets you take your music anywhere you go.

All your entertainment, streaming with Bluetooth® ease

The SoundLink® Mini connects wirelessly to your smartphone, tablet or other Bluetooth device, so you can enjoy music from your personal library, thousands of Internet streaming radio stations, or services like Pandora® Internet radio while cueing up songs from your fingertips. The included charging cradle is a nice touch — it lets you keep the speaker charged and ready to grab, so you can slip it into a daypack and have your tunes close at hand anytime.

Unplugged or plugged

The built-in lithium-ion battery gives you up to 7 hours of play time, so the SoundLink® Mini can keep a party going, even unplugged. Or place it on a kitchen shelf in its cradle while you manage your news and entertainment listening from a tablet. All the while, you'll be listening to clearly defined midrange and highs, while enjoying bass response you probably never imagined would come from something this small.

Impeccable build quality

The SoundLink® Mini speaker is engineered with a solid, anodized aluminum housing and skid-proof rubber bottom, so it can stand up to everyday use and sit almost anywhere.

From our review Big performance, small size

I can easily imagine the Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker sitting happily in its included charging cradle next to the family's keychains and wallets, waiting for the “grab-and-go” moment on the way out the door. It's ridiculously simple to operate. It requires a tiny footprint — slightly more than your average Hershey bar — and it doesn't need wires. And it delivers a healthy helping of that legendary Bose® listening experience.

— Woody Sherman, Crutchfield A/V Writer

Features

Bluetooth (A2DP) Technology: The Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker offers built-in Bluetooth (A2DP) technology which lets you wirelessly connect with many Bluetooth enabled devices; such as your iPod touch, iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, or laptop. You'll be able to wirelessly stream music stored on your device or from music apps on your device; like Pandora, iHeartRadio, MOG, or Spotify. And if you need to multitask, you can keep using your device while you listen to music. Bluetooth wireless technology has a range of approximately 30'. The SoundLink Mini can pair up to six Bluetooth-enabled devices (only one can be active). If you are using a smartphone, a phone call interrupts your audio source and plays through your phone only. When the call ends, your music automatically resumes through the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker.

Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker.

Advanced Sound Performance: Proprietary speaker technologies deliver your music in all its clarity with robust sound unusual for a compact, wireless speaker. Its unique driver configuration allows the small, lightweight speaker to reproduce deep, full sound.

Note: For best bass response, the back of the speaker should be placed near a wall, but not directly against a wall. Bass response decreases as the speaker is moved away from a wall. Do not lay the speaker on its back. Sound is emitted from both the front and rear of the unit.

Aluminum Construction: The Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker features a single-piece aluminum cabinet finished in silver with a black mesh grille that is both attractive and durable.

Top-Panel Controls: The SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker features simple-to-use top-panel buttons (Power/Volume/Mute/Bluetooth/Aux). You will control all playback functions of your music from your connected Bluetooth mobile device.

Aux Input: The SoundLink Mini has a side-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a external portable audio source other than your Bluetooth-enabled device.

Rechargeable Battery: The SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker is powered by a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. A fully charged battery gives you up to seven hours of continuous playing time in most situations. The included charging cradle & AC power adapter recharges the battery and serves as a convenient home base for the speaker, and it lets you play while it charges. An empty battery usually takes three hours to charge. The battery light shows green when the battery is charged between 70-100%. Yellow indicates a charge between 20-70%. And red means the battery is less than 20% charged.

Note: If a connected device stops playing audio for 30 minutes, the speaker automatically turns off to conserve battery power.

AC Power Adapter: You can also plug the included AC power adapter directly into the SoundLink Mini to power the Bluetooth speaker by standard household current.

  • Input: 100-240V~ 50/60Hz, 360mA
  • Output: 12VDC, 0.833A Max

mini-USB Connector: The unit's mini-USB (type-B) port is designed for downloadable software updates that may be available in the future. By registering this product, you will automatically be notified of any necessary updates.

Optional Bose Accessories: You can add a soft cover (018SLMCRVB, sold separately) to the speaker; available in blue, green, or orange. You can also purchase a convenient travel bag (018SLMTBBK, sold separately). The Bose SoundLink Mini Car Charger (018SLMCHRG, sold separately) lets you charge the Bluetooth speaker through your vehicle's 12-volt/cigarette lighter port.

Bose soundlink mini bluetooth speaker

Written By JR, Cincinnati on Sunday, July 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I listened to 7 other speakers in all price ranges, bigger and smaller in size and cheaper and more expensive. This speaker sounded the best of all the others. The bass is amazing for a speaker of this size. The bluetooth range is 100 feet, outside in the line of sight. I used a Samsung Note tablet and a Droid Max phone. The Samsung was the furthest at 110 feet. Battery lasts as advertised and the charging cradle is really convenient. This speaker is so small you cannot believe the big sound that comes from it. I had no problem connecting it to 3 different devices. It is very well constructed and I don't hesitate to recommend it.
Pros:
*Big sound from a small package *Well built *Great range *Good value
Cons:
*None

This is the second Mini sound link we've bought. The sound quality is amazing for such a small and portable device. I've been using another bluetooth speaker, but the quality of sound isn't anything like the sound of the Bose.
Pros:
chargeable, portable, big, clear sound
Cons:
when used in the kitchen, the microwave can interrupt the signal

after reading a bunch of reviews I really was scared to try the mini soundlink. There was several bad comments about it not having enough bass and it did not have enough volume to it . Well with it being a BOSE product I decided to but it anyways and take my chances. I was blown away with the performance and sound of this product. This thing has all the bass and speaker volume you could want. It sounds better than any I have tried. Buy it you will not be disappointed,

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this speaker a couple of months ago, and I have enjoyed it ever since. The sound quality is absolutely amazing for a speaker this size! The construction quality is top-notch, and the battery life is more than adequate. The charger is easy to use, and there is an input jack for a cable, if you don't want to use the Bluetooth connection. Thanks to Bose for a great product, and thanks to Crutchfield for offering a great product as well. Your ears won't be disappointed!

Great sound, great construction and portability.

You pay the price, but you get premium quality. This unit is very impressive and the sound it generates just makes you scratch your head. How do they do it? Nice, clean design... even the charge cradle. Very happy.
Pros:
Big sound from a little container; clean design; appears very well made.
Cons:
Not a con, but would have been nice to include a carrying case. It would enhance the total product at very small cost.

Good Sound, Good Value

Written By Anonymous, Tuckahoe, NY on Thursday, June 12, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
For years, I've enjoyed listening to my iPod on a Bose SoundDock. I recently came across the SoundLink mini and thought I would give it a try. It's only been a few weeks, but I am more than happy with the purchase. The sound is as good as can be expected from a battery operated speaker of this size. Nevertheless, the sound is good. What really separates the SoundLink from the SoundDock is the bluetooth technology. It allows you to place the speaker anywhere in a room or outside and maintain control of the bluetooth device in your hand. I particularly enjoy connecting to the Siruis app on my iPhone.
Pros:
Very small and stylsih, sound is good for a speaker this size
Cons:
none thus far

But it is so small

Written By GC, Charlottesville, Va on Friday, June 06, 2014
 
This little speaker is quite impressive. You can crank it on up and the distortion is minimal. It also can get pretty loud for those times when your in the great outdoors. I throw it and an MP3 player in my back pack, head for the mountains, and enjoy quality tunes while watching the sun set.
Pros:
Great sound, small in size, soundly built.
Cons:
Wish the battery life were longer, for those 3 day camping trips. Have to tote an external power source to recharge it after 6 or 7 hours.

A very impressive sound -surprising for the size. Very easy to use and connect to your Bluetooth device. I like the fact that you can use a "wired" connection if you want since my MP3 player does not have Bluetooth connectivity. Played it for a friend and they immediately went out and bought one. Battery life is very good.
Pros:
Sound. Size, Ease of Use. Ultimate in speaker portability.

Have had this product about three weeks now - very satisfied. with speaker sitting about three inches from a rear hard surface, bass response is great. Not sure how the sound would carry in an outside situation. Pretty sure I have used this for more than seven hours now on it's initial charge with volume fairly high. - almost ready for a charge. Pricy, but good quality.

Sound from this small a speaker is great.

Another great Bose product...

Written By RickNYC, New York, NY on Monday, May 19, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Needed a bluetooth speaker for my office at work and could not be happier with the Bose SoundLink Mini Speaker. My office is about 10x12, so on the smaller size for a room and this speaker rocks-out! The base is deep and strong, the highs are clear and crisp. Easy to set up and use. I use mostly with Iheart radio and Pandora. Highly recommend if you are in need of a great speaker for a smaller room. I keep it at the office but it could be very portable in a briefcase or backpack.
Pros:
great full sound, easy to set up and use, very portable.
Cons:
seems to be a bit on the pricey side, as is the case with Bose products but it delivers on the sound quality and design.

Excellent built quality!! Was looking to buy the UE Boom but read the reviews on the battery life and lack of replacement thus went with the Bose. Very good low end reproduction but lacks the highs. Does. to have the 360 degrees coverage but that was not a must for me. Have not tested how long a battery charge will last yet.

Great speaker!

Written By MOP68AR, Colorado Springs CO on Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
very impressed with this speaker from Bose. I originally purchased it for my camper due to the small footprint and blue tooth capabilities. I now use it for way more. This little thing rocks! Now with that being said, keep in mind this is a small speaker and if you are looking for boombox performance then this is not it. however, this puts out more then enough sound to listen to in a bedroom, or other small space. I even use it out side my camper during campfire cooking and sounds just great. Good battery life as well.
Pros:
small, good bass, battery life
Cons:
price.....however in range of others but still it is $200 bucks

WONDERFUL PRODUCT!

Written By Nancy, Aberdeen, WA on Thursday, April 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This speaker is just awesome! The sounds that come out of it are unbelievable for such a small piece of equipment. I can play music from my iPad and hear it flawlessly on this speaker even when I carry it outside more than 30 feet away from the iPad (through a wall as well). I've also used it in my bathroom which is a good 40+ feet away and through 4 walls with only minor skips now and then. With the additional purchases of the soft cover and carrying case, it's very well-protected. I'm so very happy I stumbled across this speaker; it's one of my best electronics purchases (except maybe the Bose Companion 5 system for my desktop).
Pros:
Easy to transport and charge; solid but not too heavy; great sound; good looking.
Cons:
None

Great sound overall. Small size for loud sound, clarity great. Can charge from a (12V car charge). A bit on the pricy side, but have given the no name portable Bluetooth speakers a fair chance first and they always stop working within a couple months in some way or another. This one has had no problems in over 4 months.

Sterling Sound!

Written By SuSu, Asheville, NC on Friday, April 18, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Oh my gosh. What tremendous sound comes out of this mini speaker. I was totally surprised when I turned it on the first time and so was my husband who owns some incredible standard sized sound equipment. I really took my time before purchasing this speaker. I have been looking for the past couple of years for a small Bluetooth speaker; however, none fit my requirements. This one has exceeded my expectations. My husband is fearful that I will wear it out. :-) I use it in our bedroom for easy listening and in the kitchen while I cook. And, I take it on our front porch where I could sit for hours listening to it. Our car radio is okay; however, I don't have the capability to listen to iTunes on my iPhone so I plan on taking it in the car for long journeys. I just ordered the car charger for the mini and am so excited to receive it. I also ordered the soft cover in orange since my husband owns a Kubota RTV so he can listen to music, other than headphones, on it while keeping the mini a little more protected. I am still stunned by the amazing bass out of this small speaker. The overall sound quality is absolutely superb. You will not be disappointed in this speaker. Don't wait...buy it today!! It's the best money I have spent in years.
Pros:
Sterling sound, small form factor, incredible portability
Cons:
None

Bose Mini Impresses

Written By Billy, Columbia, MD on Monday, March 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have had the Bose Soundlink Mini for about a week. Every time I turn it on and stream tunes, it never fails to amaze me. It is incredible what Bose has managed to cram into such a small footprint. Sound is full and rich. Base is impressive, as is the treble. It fills any mid-size room with glorious sound with little difficulty. Searched quite extensively, read many reviews for something to replace an older JBL device which broke. Finally settled on the Bose mini and have no regrets.
Pros:
Bluetooth, small, portable, great sound, impressively crafted.
Cons:
None I can think of.

It is a great piece of equipment. The wi-fi is great, easy to make connection. I use the wi-fi with the iPad and it make connection every time. The sound is much better than the sound from the TV. I use the aux port to connect to the TV. it is convenience to carry around.

Great Little Speaker

Written By Mike C, Wisconsin on Sunday, February 16, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this after reading all the rave reviews. Totally agree that the sound is awesome for the tiny footprint and the construction quality is excellent. Does it put out the sound of a good Klipsch ProMedia 3 piece system for PC use? No way. Different animal all together but just don't buy one for that purpose thinking it will. The Bluetooth works flawlessly and if you have a few spots you feel this type of speaker will work - there isn't a speaker this size that will do it better. It's NOT however, an acceptable substitute for a good home office PC speaker system or something that will fill a living room with sound produced by bigger speakers or small speakers with a subwoofer.
Pros:
Great for what tit is.
Cons:
Not great for what it isn't.

Bookshelf replacements?

Written By JMusica, Oklahoma on Thursday, February 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Man, I wish I had these in college. I remember spending 100 bucks plus for a set of book shelf speakers for my room. They were nice, but not this nice and portable!
Pros:
Portable, sounds great, easy to connect to bluetooth. Sounds a lot cleaner then other portable bluetooth speakers that I have tried. The others were too muddy where these have definition.
Cons:
No, I don't live in a dorm room anymore. However, if you want to blow out the doors, these are not for you. They get loud enough and sound clean enough - just what I need. Don't expect ground pounding music, if you do, don't move next door to me.

Great sound

Written By Dave, Kersey, Pa on Monday, February 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Unbelievable sound from such a small speaker. I'd give it a 5 star except that if you don't use the bluetooth, and use the aux cable, the sound is poor. Unfortuantely, my older iPods don't have bluetooth, so I "can't" even use it with them. If you have bluetooth, it's an awesome speaker.
Pros:
Awesome sound using bluetooth
Cons:
Poor sound using AUX jack.

Excellent Speaker

Written By Taylor Campbell, Oxford, MS on Monday, January 27, 2014
 
Sound: I bought this speaker and was amazed by the sound it produced. This unit has very good bass for its size (it sounds best when placed close to a wall, which allows the rear radiator to reflect back toward you.) The volume of sound produced by this unit is great for indoor spaces. I can hook my laptop up projectors in my college's classrooms and fill the room with great sound from this speaker. The unit is loud enough to listen too in quieter out door spaces, though you will likely want something louder for an outdoor party.

Build: This unit feels very sturdy. The exterior of the unit is made of aluminum (matches MacBooks very nicely) and has a large, grippy rubber pad on the pad to hold it in place. The controls on top are a very soft rubber. The unit has a nice heft, and feels sturdy and well built.

Features/ease of use This unit is very ease to use. To charge it, you just sit on its cradle (although sometimes you have to kind of guide it in, it doesn't center itself very well) and the unit chirps to notify you that it is charging. When using the unit's bluetooth the indicator above the bluetooth button stays white. (if turned off it will try to reconnect to the last device and ignore all other devices) To change devices simply press the bluetooth key and the light pulses blue allowing you to easily and quickly change devices. My only complaint is the lack of a built in mic for speakerphone use and lack of media controls.

Over all a great unit.
Pros:
Sound, Size, Build Quality, Appearance, Battery Life, Ease of use.
Cons:
No built in mic (means can't be used as a speakerphone), no media controls (you can not wireless control your device with this speaker.

Purchased the Bose SoundLink MiniBluetooth for my wife who always listened to her music stored in her Ipad. Works great and the sound is wonderful. Small enough to carry to any room.
Pros:
great sound for a small speaker, portable easy to operate and control
Cons:
You can pair multiple devices, however only one can be near it when playing your music or you must turn bluetooth off on the other devices to operate properly.

Unbelievable

Written By PaulO, Naperville, IL on Saturday, January 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
True to form Bose delivers above and beyond with the Soundlink Mini. My daughter wanted a portable player for her iPhone and in comparing this with other similar products, it was clear why Bose is the leader in delivering rich, full sound in such a small device.
Pros:
Light, portable, easy to operate, sound is truly amazing.
Cons:
No case or anything to put it in. I had to spend an additional $50 on a carrying case- thought they could include something since it is touted as portable.

This speaker sounds great, but its not loud enough. Also, the sound seems to distort somewhat at louder frequencies. I'm not sure if I should exchange it or not because at lower volume, it sounds very good. I guess for the price I expected more.
Pros:
Great sound and good battery life
Cons:
Not loud enough and distorts at higher volumes.

Works for us!

Written By TomB, Lewes, DE on Friday, January 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My neighbor found one of these at the Bose Store and raved about it. My wife needed something to play music in her office area, out on the patio in warm weather (our community does not allow permanent exterior speakers) and in the living room (she hates to mess with our main house system - " too complicated"). We had been using a small AAA battery speaker, but the sound left a lot to be desired and distorted frequently on highs and lows. Hey, what do you want for $20?

I got it for her from Crutchfield for Christmas. WOW, I was impressed with what it put out for distortion-free sound no matter how loud we pushed it. We have 13 ½ vaulted ceilings in our great room and I was amazed with the warmth of the realistic sound this unit put out. Our whole house is filled from her iPad playing through this speaker! My wife is looking to having it on our patio for the summer!

While it is no match head-to-head for my Denon/Polk main system with two Sony 400 CD mega-changers, I am forced to say that it is an excellent value for the money.

Crutchfield delivered the unit to me in one day as they always do with no hassles and no stories. I did not need to talk to anyone on this purchase, but as always the Crutchfield buying experience was A+ and faultless. I suppose that I could have looked at other brands, but during the holidays, I want to resist the urge to over-analyze.

This purchase ranks up there with the iPad I got her. She's happy, so I am happy - end of story!
Pros:
Small, easy to use, great sound amazing for the size, long battery life, fast re-charge
Cons:
Accessories are expensive as is usual with anything Bose you buy

Outstanding Sound Quality

Written By Beavis W, Louisville, KY on Thursday, January 02, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is my first Bose item purchase. In the past I never understood the price break vs. sound quality until I turned the Mini on. I was looking at other BlueTooth speakers for less than $150 and there are 100's below this price range. I read several of the reviews for the Mini and watched the Crutchfield video review and was sold on the product. The product arrived in two very quick shipping days, way to go Crutchfield! The Mini's packaging just shows the time and quality Bose places within their products. Once I opened the box I turned it on, and sync'd it up with my iPhone 5 with no hassle. I was surprised it had enough juice to play for almost an hour. I was immediately blown away by the sound quality from such a small device. The Mini has sound quality and loudness of a large scale home speaker. The Mini has some weight but very portable. I just can't say how impressive the sound quality for this small device puts out. I had it next to my Polk 5000 sound bar during the holidays and my friends thought all the music I was streaming was from my Polk 5000 sound bar but it was coming from the Mini. They were all impressed and couldn't believe the sound quality output. Terrific and I will be a loyal Bose owner going forward!
Pros:
Outstanding Crutchfield service and shipping. Bose Packaging high quality to match the exceptional sound output. I can't impress enough the sound that comes from this Mini speaker. Easy to charge on the portable charging base that comes with the unit, excellent phone to mini speaker range, very loud with excellent low and high's from all ranges of music played thus far. Heavy Metal, Rap, Country, Blues to Jazz!
Cons:
None, buy this item if its near your price range. Spend the extra money from the other BlueTooth speakers. The Mini Rocks!

I tell you what. This little speaker packs a punch. This is another speaker system done well by BOSE. The speaker has enough sound and power to fill just about any room. I have demoed this little package to the guys at work and they have all been impressed some much they are going to buy one for themselves. Now I know the price is a little steep for a speaker, but it will be money well spent and you regret buying when you do.
Pros:
Sound great, portability, Bluetooth and aux cable ability
Cons:
It can be a little boomy depending one where you place it.

Very nice speaker with clear music overall. Plenty of volume for a smaller room or close listening. I was less impressed when I hooked it up to a desktop PC, perhaps I need to adjust the sound settings. It would be nice of it would hook up to 2 phones at once but it doesn't. The dock is convenient. My girlfriend liked it so that's all that matters!

This little Bose speaker sounds amazing. It is a solid, very well made speaker with deep, full bass and expanded high and midrange sound. I have tried most and this is the best sounding Bluetooth speaker I've heard. It can arguably replace most home music systems. I highly recommend!
Pros:
Great sound Excellent, full bass and high, crisp treble High quality aluminum construction. Elegant design Nice accessories (bumper & travel case) Slim A/C adapter w/docking cradle
Cons:
A bit heavy (but that is why bass sounds so good) Does not work as a speakerphone if a call comes in while connected to Bluetooth.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Newly acquired at Christmas so not a long listening experience yet but this speaker has fantastic full sound for it's size. The highs are clear and surprisingly full bodied bass. Can't really comment on the play time after a full charge yet but I expect it will live up to the specs as everything else has so far. I've been using a Logitech mini boom box for the past year and a half and it pales in comparison to the Bose Soundlink Mini. Granted the Bose is more than twice the price but as they say, you get what you pay for. I'm thinking of getting another...

Bose mini

Written By E, Gc, ny on Thursday, December 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Solid build. Looks elegant. Not sure of durability if used outside. Sound is above average. For its size I would say very good. Bass is decent but not very deep. It is loud enough to fill a 20/30 room w ample sound. Needs an iPhone app so I can control on/off as well as speaker volume. Now I keep at high volume and adjust in my iPads volume. But still would be nice to have an app. It keeps a connection at 30 feet easily, but that is less if there is a wall inbetween. But that is typical of most bt devises. Not sure if it is bt 4.0 which is much more energy sparing as it turns itself in and off as needed. I don't think it is as the blue light stays on even after paused for 10 minutes. Accessories stink. Why no black protective case? Neon? Why? This is a Bose not a Beats! I had a 50 gift card and w free shipping and no tax this was a great deal. At 200 though I would still expect a USB mini charger, better base, and bt 4.0. I would recommend it but I didn't shop and compare sound. Others could be better at price. Jawbone looked like a toy and pill looked stupid. So on looks, this is the deal.
Pros:
Looks good w decent volume and middle of road sound. But for size good
Cons:
No USB mini. Not great bass.

Bose Mini Soundlink: minor design flaw

Written By EddieA, Boulder, CO on Wednesday, December 18, 2013
 
It deserves 5 stars for sound quality. But ... I have discovered one minor design flaw in the Bose Mini Soundlink. The unit is designed to turn itself off after there has been a lengthy idle (no audio streamed) period. But, if the unit is plugged into its charger, such that it cannot run out of electricity, it still turns itself off after the idle period. If the person who is using it is disabled or otherwise has limited mobility, and does not restart streaming from their music device promptly after the previous playlist finishes, that means that someone has to go to the Soundlink and press the power button to turn it back on ... even though there is no danger of it running out of electrons.
Pros:
Fantastic sound.
Cons:
Having to get up to turn it back on, even when it is being charged.
