Our take on the Bose® SoundLink® Wireless Mobile speaker by Crutchfield's Tara W.
Bose® sound from your mobile phone or any Bluetooth® device — no cables required
The Bose® SoundLink® Wireless Mobile speaker lets you experience the music on your phone like never before. This compact player features built-in Bluetooth so you can enjoy rich Bose® sound with your smartphone, tablet, or other Bluetooth device, without connecting a cable. And the speaker's built-in rechargeable battery means you can go completely wireless — unplug it and take it with you for up to eight hours of playback on the go.
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, this speaker will bring out the details in your music. You'll hear clear highs, well-defined mids, and a surprising amount of bass for such a small speaker.
Included cover and convenient built-in controls
An included nylon cover protects the SoundLink® speaker while you travel and folds out to become a stand when you're ready to listen. Power and volume controls on the top of the player let you easily make quick adjustments, but you'll use your phone or Bluetooth device to pick out songs and queue up playlists.
From the review The Bose® SoundLink® Wireless Mobile speaker — Fun on the go
"The Bose® SoundLink® Wireless Mobile speaker delivers a solid audio performance. When I combine that with the Bluetooth capability and rechargeable battery, this becomes an iPod (phone, tablet, and computer) speaker that'll work well in an office, in a home, and at a tailgate party."
— Tara W. , Crutchfield Video Production Manager

Bose® SoundLink® Wireless Mobile speaker Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile Speaker employs Bluetooth Technology that allows you to enjoy digital music & Internet radio from your Bluetooth enabled digital audio player (iPod), smartphone (iPhone/Android/Blackberry), tablet (iPad), or laptop (Windows/Mac) in & around your home. The SoundLink Wireless Mobile Speaker utilizes Bose proprietary speaker technology for lifelike sound performance. The Bose SoundLink can be moved from room-to-room thanks to it's rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
Bose Proprietary Speaker Technology: The Bose SoundLink wireless mobile speaker employs proprietary speaker technology that delivers robust sound with convincing low notes from Bose passive radiators.
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.
Bluetooth Technology (with 30' range): The SoundLink Wireless Mobile speaker is designed specifically for use with today's most popular Bluetooth devices, such as smartphones, tablets, & laptops. Wireless Bluetooth Technology eliminates the need to dock or physically connect your Bluetooth enabled audio device. A 30' wireless range lets you keep your Bluetooth enabled digital audio player, smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other device with you & place the SoundLink speaker where you want it.
Note: On average, the speaker will work within 30' of your paired Bluetooth device. Walls & construction materials can affect reception at times. The Bose SoundLink is not compatible with all Bluetooth devices.
Pair & Play: The SoundLink wireless mobile speaker must be paired with your Bluetooth enabled audio device initially. Simply press & hold the Bluetooth button on the unit's top panel, then choose the "SoundLink" speaker from your smartphone or other Bluetooth enabled source; and its now memorized, & ready to play. The wireless mobile speaker keeps up to 6 Bluetooth sources in memory. However, it can only connect to, and play audio from one device at a time.
Top Panel Controls: Power & volume controls are located on the wireless mobile speaker, itself. Otherwise, use your Bluetooth enabled digital audio player, smartphone, tablet, laptop, or other paired device to select a playlist, streaming audio source, etc. No remote control needed.
Phone Interrupt: When you have your smartphone connected to the SoundLink, an incoming phone call will mute the wireless mobile speaker & your phone call will only be heard from your smartphone. When the call ends, your music automatically resumes through the SoundLink speaker.
Auxiliary Input: The Bose SoundLink is equipped with a rear-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for playing an MP3 player or DVD/CD player through the system. A 36" stereo minijack audio cable is included.
Status Indicators: The status indicators, located on the front of the SoundLink speaker, illuminate to indicate when a source or feature is activated.
Integrated Cover: An integrated cover protects the speaker during travel & unfolds into a stand for instant playing anywhere. No sound is emitted from the speaker unless the cover is opened. The included cover is a dark gray nylon. Additional covers in various colors (burgundy, red, tan) are available (sold separately).
Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery: The installed rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides approximately 8-hours of playback time. The lithium-ion battery charges whenever the system is plugged into a wall outlet with the included AC power adapter. An empty battery usually charges in 2-3 hours.
Note: The included lithium-ion battery is replaceable; go to Bose.com for replacement.
AC Power Adapter: In addition to the integrated rechargeable battery, the Bose SoundLink can operate off of standard household current using the included AC power adapter.
- Input: 100-240V~50/60Hz, 600mA
- Output: 17.0V, 1000mA
Note: Optional 12-volt car charger (018SNDCHGR, sold separately) is available.
Auto Off: If a device is connected, but not playing audio, the speaker will turn itself off after 30 minutes.
Mini-USB Port (service): The Bose SoundLink wireless mobile speaker is fitted with a mini-USB (type-B) port, labeled "Service", for software updates to ensure ongoing Bluetooth device compatibility.
