Crutchfield: Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker
Item # 018SLMCROL | MFR # 783342-0500
Price Break: -$10.00
Bose® knows sound. So it's not surprising that the compact Bose® SoundLink® Micro Bluetooth speaker can produce a big sound that's clear and clean. This portable speaker not only has an "outdoor voice," it's got the build to match. The SoundLink® Micro's soft, silicone enclosure makes it waterproof, shock-resistant, and sand- and dust-proof. And its thick silicone strap is also tear-resistant.
Use the SoundLink® Micro's built-in microphone for hands-free conversations with your paired smartphone. The speaker also lets you access your Siri® or Google Assistant™ voice controllers to use your smartphone hands-free. Voice prompts guide you through the pairing process, making it super easy.
With the free Bose® Connect app you can do even more. You can pair two SoundLink® Micros together for spacious stereo sound. Or select Party Mode to have both plays simultaneously, doubling the volume. The app can also control other Bose® SoundLink® products, so you can operate them all from your phone.

Small speaker, Big Sound, great price for Bose Product and even better value.
Pros: Great for travel....
This is the second Soundlink I have purchased. Having the stereo effect is fantastic, you can have your music anywhere as long as you have blu-tooth. The units are so small but pack a big sound! This is a must for anyone that wants their music anywhere.

Great speaker. I have other Bose products and this speaker has the same excellent quality.
Pros: Portable. Good quality
Cons: Didn't come with a written manual. I had to call Bose and they told me how to download it.
VERY NICE LITTLE SPEAKER WITH A VERY LARGE SOUND, AND BOSE IS ALWAYS THE BEST , I OWN SEVERAL BOSE ITEMS , SOME FOR A VERY LONG TIME, ALL STILL WORKS GREAT
Pros: NICE SIZE , GREAT SOUND, WATER PROOF CAN USE AROUND HOT TUB AND POOL

Great sound for a small speaker bose quality
Amazing sound in a little package! Easy to pair, compact size and great sound with plenty of base. This little speaker is great for travel or to the park.
The sound is great. It seems to lack top end power.
Pros: clear and crisp sound like we expect from bose
Great portable speakers and the sound is unbelievable! One sounds great by itself but two paired are even better! The band to attach them to items is ingenious!
Pros: The strap is great and the sound
Cons: No complaints.
I really like both the sound and the portability of this small speaker. I take it from room to room in the house, on my patio and even in my kayak.
The sound is very good at high and low levels.
Small and convenient portable speaker with powerful sound. Can't go wrong.
Love the sound and the size of the unit. It is very compact and easy to pack. It stays charged a long time as well. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a portable speaker.
It does what I thought it would do - being BOSE though - It was nothing special, and a little disappointed in that it didn't rise above a normal tiny speaker
Pros: nice idea to have a bluetooth connection - walk around without the home devise needing to be wired up
Cons: nothing special about it being BOSE On/off switch is a mystery at times
Great sound as all Bose products have. My friends are surprised at the volume this little box can achieve. It fits well on my motorcycle handlebar and I'm considering purchasing a second one so I can pair them and improve the sound even more while riding my Harley Davidson. The portability is nice also.
Pros: Small footprint, portability
Cons: The black silicone cover shows lint and dust. It does come in different colors so that should be considered.
I bring this everywhere I go! Great sound from a small speaker. Another fantastic Bose product.
Pros: Size, sound
it's cute and sounds good for it's class. I also have the soundcolor and I like that one better for the power. I got this one for travel and to use with the ipad.
Cons: overall power
|NFC Touch Pairing||No|
Rugged & Waterproof: Bose used a high-quality silicone material to eliminate as many seams and gaps as possible in order to create a seal around the speaker to protect it against dust and water, plus guard against dents and scratches. The Bose SoundLink Micro is waterproof and splash resistant with a IPX7 and IPX4 rating. You can immerse the speaker in water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 3.2' (1 meter). It can also be used while showering and in the rain or snow. The integrated tear-resistant, silicone strap provides easy transport of the speaker. Simply secure it your backpack, purse, bicycle handlebar, or other object.
Note: Do not submerge this speaker in any pool of water deeper than 3.2' (1 meter). This speaker does not float.
Custom Designed Drivers: The Bose SoundLink Micro portable Bluetooth speaker features a custom-designed transducer and silicone passive radiator that reproduce impressive sound when compared to the overall size of the speaker.
Voice Guided Multi-Device Pairing: Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing, making it simple to wirelessly connect your Bluetooth-enabled source device to the Bose SoundLink Micro. The SoundLink Micro keeps track of the last eight devices to have paired with it, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired. It even allows you to keep two Bluetooth source devices connected at once for easier switching between devices (however, it will only receive audio from one device at a time). The Bose SoundLink Micro will automatically re-connect with an already paired Bluetooth source device when it is in wireless range (up to 30').
Wireless Music Streaming: Thanks to the support for Bluetooth A2DP & AVRCP, you can stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth source device to the Bose SoundLink Micro speaker system. You also get basic playback controls like Volume Up/Down, Play/Pause, and Previous/Next Track from the SoundLink Micro's top-panel buttons. The Bose SoundLink Micro has a range of approximately 30', so you can enjoy your music without wires. If you are using a smartphone and a phone call comes in, your music will be interrupted until the phone call ends. Once the phone call ends, your music will automatically resume.
Hands-Free Speakerphone: The Bose SoundLink Micro also features a built-in mic, so you can use the SoundLink Micro as a speakerphone for your smartphone. The built-in mic will be used to carry on your side of the conversation, while the other party is heard through the Micro's speaker. You can use the SoundLink Micro's top-panel controls to answer, end, and reject calls. The SoundLink Micro can even access the voice dialing functions of your smartphone and audibly indentify incoming callers (when applicable).
Digital Voice Assistance: The SoundLink Micro's built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone on your Apple iPhone 4S and newer or compatible Android smartphone, so you can access Siri & Android's digital voice assistant (like Google Now).
Bose Connect App: The Bose Connect app (for Apple iOS 9.0+ and Android OS 5.0+) gives you quick access to the key features like the auto-off timer, volume control, and battery readings. Plus, it's the easiest way to manage multiple Bluetooth connected devices. From the app you'll also receive software updates, product tips, and be able to personalize settings.
Stereo & Party Modes: For those times when one Bose SoundLink Micro isn't enough, you can use the Bose Connect app to pair two SoundLink Micro speakers together. You can select Party mode to pair two Micro speakers together for double the sound. You can select Stereo Mode to naturally separate and spread the sound across an immersive stereo soundstage.
Top- and Side-Panel Controls: Top- and side-panel controls include Power On/Off, Volume Up/Down, Bluetooth Pairing, and a Multi-Function button. The Multi-function button provides Bluetooth music playback functions (such as Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track), as well as Bluetooth hands-free phone functions (such as Voice Control/Digital Assistant Activation, Answer/End/Reject/Mute Call, and Device/Speaker/Call Switch).
Rechargeable Battery: The rechargeable lithium-ion battery gives you up to 6 hours of playback time. Using the SoundLink Micro's microUSB input, the included microUSB-to-USB cable, and a USB power source (not supplied) you can charge the built-in battery. It takes approximately 4 hours to fully charge the built-in battery. Each time you power on the speaker, a voice prompt announces the battery level. When the speaker is in use, a voice prompt announces if the battery needs to be charged.
Note: Battery performance varies with the content played and volume level.

Bought this speaker for two reason. First and foremost is for my son who loves to listen to his music while working on projects in his personal space. This speaker will provide him with far better sound than his tablet, and if he drops it or spills on it, it should be just fine. Secondly is for when we travel as a family, we will now have a good source of sound for our music no matter where we are, even if it is floating in a pool, or kayaking in the ocean.

The Bose Soundlink is a great choice for blu=tooth listening, iPod touch, smartphone etc. Great sound, compact unit. [ DENNIS Jan 30, 2018 ]
If your iPod does not offer built-in Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming, we do have many powered speakers that feature an auxiliary audio input for a physical connection from the iPod's headphone output. For the same price as this Bose model, check out the JBL Flip4: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_109FLIP4BK/item.html It's been a very popular model and gets great reviews from customers on our website. I hope that helps My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan [ Ryan Jan 26, 2018 ] Staff
