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.

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.

Sterling Sound!

Written By SuSu, Asheville, NC on Friday, April 18, 2014
 
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!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Sound is amazing for such a small unit. Feels very sturdy and well built. On the expensive side, but expect it to last a long time with quality construction and Bose name. Very happy with purchase.
Pros:
Awesome sound
Cons:
Expensive

Great for mobile speaker.

Written By Schafty, Lincoln NE on Monday, December 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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!
Pros:
Bluetooth, ease of use
Cons:
Have to purchase cover and carry case separately.

Big system sound!

Written By HighOctaneCEO, SoCal on Sunday, December 29, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Fantastic sound!

Written By FH Worsham, Evans, GA on Thursday, December 26, 2013
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...
Pros:
Great sound
Cons:
None so far

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.

Wonderful sound! Bought this after being disappointed with the Cambridge Audio Minx Go, which was too bass heavy and muddy for my taste. I listen to a lot of classical music and the Bose has much better clarity in the higher frequencies. Definitely worth the extra $50.

Amazing Unit

Written By JLM, ND on Wednesday, December 04, 2013
 
This unit is simply amazing. I am very picky with sound, design, quality, value etc. and this speaker exceeds my expectations in every way. It's worth every cent of the cost. Incredible bass, and sounds better than the bigger brother "Soundlink" - without question. Not a single glitch with BT and syncs with device instantly on it's own after initial sync. If you want an amazing sounding BT speaker that is totally portable and bass you can feel, then this is the only one to get. There are a few others that come close but this unit stands above them all in this size / price range and many bigger / more expensive ones as well. Buy it.
Pros:
Sound ; bass response; design; build quality; portability; very slim power supply; value
Cons:
Protection cases cost extra

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
As usual, Bose knows how to provide excellent sound in a small speaker. I've listened to a lot of other Bluetooth speakers before buying these. It's built better than the other Bluetooth speakers and I've found the range exceeds what the specifications listed as maximum distance. Expensive, but well worth it!
Pros:
Great Sound, small size and Bluetooth pairs easily.
Cons:
Other than price, none so far.

Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker

Written By Danie829, Washington State on Sunday, December 01, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
After purchasing a couple of lower end, portable bluetooth speakers for use with my iPad and being disappointed in the sound quality and battery life, I decided to make the investment in the Bose mini. I use it with my iPad to listen to Pandora at work, my mp3's in the car, videos at home and my white noise app during the night. I've also used it with my laptop and desktop computers. Absolutely love it. I'm amazed at the range, depth and quality of the sound that comes from such a small form factor. Yes, it's pricey. It's Bose. But in this case you really do get what you pay for. Highly recommended.
Pros:
Awesome sound and build quality.
Cons:
Ability to use a remote would be nice. For the price, should include a protective case.

best little speaker under $200

Written By EddieA, Boulder, CO on Saturday, November 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is the BEST bluetooth speaker you'll find at this price. I listened to several others at brick & mortar stores, and they don't come close to the quality of sound which this Bose has. It is especially handy on trips - can listen to the type of music I want in hotel/B&B rooms.
Pros:
Best sound in its class. PERIOD.
Cons:
There is no indicator to tell you where the volume level is set, once you are done pressing the + and - buttons. Sometimes, you may have to totally delete pairing info from a device, before the speaker can be paired with another device. (OK I admit it - I didn't read the instructions.)

This little, very portable, Bose speaker sounds incredible! You will be amazed out how much crystal clear sound this little speaker puts out! Plus that fact that it comes with it's own docking station allows for portabliity to take it with you to the garage, on the road or wherever else and not to have to worry about power. Looks great on your office desk. Even though it's $200, it a very good value considering it's a Bose product Very satisfied & as always top-notch customer service from Crutchfield (Thanks again Scooter)!
Pros:
Incredible sound from a very small portable speaker Comes with a charging dock & built-in battery will allow for easy portablility to take it with you to the garage, deck or wherever else you want to go. Very reasonably priced for a Bose product.
Cons:
The protective accessory cover is $25. A little pricey for what it is. Not necessary if you don't plan on taking it anywhere off of your desk, but I'd recommend it if you do plan on taking it anywhere.

Sound link mini AWESOME

Written By Los, The Woodlands on Saturday, October 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The most awesome mini speaker around. Very portable and great sound around a backyard pool area. I was wavering between the mini and the full size. Having read other reviews this is efficiently fitting my needs outside around the pool. I'm so glad I did due yo the portability.

My friend was do pressed with it when she first heard the sound and immediately purchased one for her son for his birthday. (Nice gift huh?).

In all, excellent purchase for the price I just wish Bose had included the protective case instead of purchasing separately. (I use my funny pack). But that's capitalism for ya !!!
Pros:
Sound unlike no other got the size. Very portable
Cons:
No protective case included but can purchase separately

Small Size, Big Sound

Written By Barry M., Syracuse, NY on Friday, October 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bose has done it again. We've been wanting to try a Bluetooth speaker for quite a while, and after reading the early reviews we decided on the SoundLink Mini but had to wait a few months for the product to launch. It was well worth the wait; we are completely happy with it.
Pros:
Packs a rich, hefty sound for its compact size; it won't fill a room like the Bose Wave Radio, but it's close. Portability is outstanding: small enough to carry around with one hand, and no cords or wires to mess with.
Cons:
None.

Great Sound, convenient to travel with

Written By AmitJ, Atlanta, GA on Monday, September 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am extremely happy with this purchase. I have gone the cheaper route before to get the docks for my phone and even the cheaper options for bluetooth speakers. None compare to the sound output and clarity with the Mini. I travel for work, so it is great to have with me on the road. The construction feels solid, so I feel comfortable just throwing it in the back pack.

The only constructive feedback is that the sound begins to bleed at higher volumes, however, at normal hearing range for most ears, it is great.
Pros:
Amazing, clear sound. Solid construction and small enough to travel with regularly.
Cons:
No mic for speakerphone capabilities. Would like to see a case, or some protection come with the device, the add-on case is quite pricey.

Best Bluetooth Speaker out there!

Written By KathyS, Ohio on Friday, September 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have tried (and returned in some cases) every Bluetooth speaker out there including the jambox, Brookstone's Big Blue speakers and many more. I kept the BOSE Soundlink 2 because I thought it was the best, but for some reason, i think the smaller model has a better sound - even though it is $100 cheaper. Great big room-filling sound and its great portability make it the ideal speaker.
Pros:
Great sound in a small size, automatically re-pairs to the last device used, extremely portable (I carry mine all over the house).
Cons:
None as far as I'm concerned.

Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker

Written By Anonymous, Checotah, OK on Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fantastic! I compared the Bose to the Beats Pill system: There is NO comparison. The Bose Mini blows the Pill away. The Bose sound is much fuller, smother, and balanced than the Pill. I played both of the devices at the same time in my home on the same song and it was absolutely obvious. I'm not a typical Bose advocate but this device is amazing and the only device in this price category that should be considered.
Pros:
Sound quality, size, charging

NICE

This is an excellent little speaker. I have its slightly larger brother, the Sound Link and thought that was great. But I think I like the mini even better. The sound is tight and compact with just the right amount of tonality throughout the spectrum. I was actually surprised.
Pros:
Small size, sound quality
Cons:
None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My first impression was wow!!! I was extremely pleased with the build quality. There are no rattles at all with this Bose, and no cheap plastic. I knew instantly when i heard how awesome it sounded that i was content. The mini has such amazing sound it would make the pickiest person happy. What made me happiest was the fact it has great bass and mids........ And even highs which is good because i listen to jazz music. Bottom line is, if you are looking for quality with great sound behind a great name then the new Bose mini is the best of the best. If your looking for top notch customer service, friendly staff and free lightning fast shipping then Crutchfield.com is the place to go.
Pros:
Build quality, sound
Cons:
No remote, no speaker phone...... But the sound makes up for that hands down!

INCREDIBLE BASS FROM TINY SPEAKER

Written By JohnX, Pohnpei, FM on Monday, August 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Very happy with this purchase. Just got mine today. Sounds fantastic...especially the bass. Really amazed by how great the bass is, not overpowering at all, but plenty enough to be even comparable to the other speakers in its class. No distortion. No problem connecting via Bluetooth with my HTC mobile. 5 stars for this and 5 stars for Crutchfield Customer service people also. Great service, very helpful, keep it up.
Pros:
So far, Best portable Bluetooth speaker period.
Cons:
So far, None

Excellent little speaker

Written By AM, Winston Salem NC on Monday, August 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Over the last 5 years or so I have bought some 5-6 portable speakers to use with my MacBook, IPod or IPhone. All came with excellent reviews but to me, all were substandard. This little mini Bose is truly excellent. Small, relatively light, and has a crystal clear sound. I generally listen to classical music with some R&B thrown in for variety. The sound quality leaves little to be desired.

Pros:
great sound and nice metal casing
Cons:
the bottom rubber gets very dusty should have used other materials.

Bose Soundlink Mini Review

Written By Viny, Oklahoma on Sunday, July 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am a bit of a Bose bigot as I own several products from speakers to headphones to this. I also own several different bluetooth speakers for portable music (mainly in the golf cart). While I haven't had a chance to take this speaker to the course, I am very excited to do just that. This is by far the best small portable speaker I have heard yet. Period. The bass far exceeds anything I've heard to date and the music is crisp and clear. I even realized I can put it in a zip lock bag and have music in the shower. You will not be disappointed with this one.
Pros:
Solid construction, good heft coupled with a rubber base should keep it in place in the golf cart tray. Mute button to instantly kill the music to deal with something else.
Cons:
No way to advance songs or turn off the source as you can with 3 button earbuds.
