Our take on the Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth® Mobile speaker II Nylon Edition by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Legendary Bose® sound from your smartphone or tablet
The Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth® Mobile II speaker delivers your music when you want it, where you want it. This compact portable player features built-in Bluetooth so you can enjoy rich Bose® sound with your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth-enabled device.
Built for on-the-go fun
The speaker's built-in rechargeable battery means you can go completely wireless — unplug it and take it along with you for up to hours of playback on the go. An integrated bi-fold nylon cover protects the system's metal grille and chrome trim. And the case folds out to become a stand when you're ready to listen.
Great sound, thanks to Bose®
Play music files or stream Rhapsody®, Pandora® Internet radio, and other music apps. Whether you're listening indoors or out, you'll get clear, full sound. your music. Bose® innovative audio technology delivers outstanding performance from a system that's only about the size of a hardback book.
This was purchased as a gift for my daughter. She originally requested another brand which returned. She loves the Bose. It has great sound, good volume and the bass really gets there.

Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth® Mobile speaker II Nylon Edition Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Bluetooth (A2DP) Technology: The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II Digital Music System 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 Bluetooth system can pair up to 6 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 Mobile speaker II.
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 Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II system.
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: The speaker is designed to sound best when placed on a shelf, counter, desk, or tabletop that is 24-48" high. For best bass response, the speaker should be placed near a wall; bass response decreases as the speaker is placed closer to the center of a room.
Aux Input: The SoundLink Bluetooth has a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a external portable audio source other than your Bluetooth-enabled device.
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.
Integrated Cover/Stand: The SoundLink Bluetooth's integrated bi-fold cover protects the speaker during travel and unfolds into a stand for instant playback anywhere.
Rechargeable Battery: The SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II is powered by a built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. A fully charged battery gives you up to eight hours of continuous playing time in most situations. An empty battery usually takes two to three hours to charge. The battery light shows green when the battery is charged between 70-100%. Yellow indicates a charge between 20-69%. And red means the battery is less than 19% charged.
Note: When the SoundLink Mobile speaker II is unplugged and unused for more than 14 days, it enters battery protection mode to preserve battery power.
AC Power Adapter: The included AC power adapter can be used to charge the integrated battery and power the unit.
