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