Lets Break It Down

 

Design

The design of a Bluetooth speaker is crucial for every product launched on the market even though most customers claim functionality rules over design. However, when it comes to two tech products that contain similar features, the design will end up with the last word. For this reason, this Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker provides a unique and compact design which is complementing its functionality. It is perfectly designed so it goes with any interior style and décor. The casing is aluminum which makes it look luxurious and minimalistic designed. What is surprising is that even though the dimensions are small, the sound is booming.

If you wish to keep the Bose speaker for scratching there are soft covers available for you to customize it to your own taste and the design of your home. It is also available in many colors you could choose from.

 

Functionality

The setting up of the speaker is quite easy and simple. The main advantage of this product is its ability to pair with every smartphone or any other Bluetooth device. As a bonus feature, the speaker is able to remember the last 8 devices which were connected through the Bluetooth. This means that all your devices will be connected to it as long as you have wireless internet, without you having to setup each and every one of them every time.

We also like that all the items which are needed for the speaker to work are included in the price box. With the Bose sound speaker you have a charging cradle, wall charger and a cable to connect them for the same price. As compared to other products from this range, the price which Bose sound speaker has is a bit more expensive. Nevertheless, it is a durable product which you would be able to use for a longer period of time compared to some other products with the same features.

 

Performance

This speaker is more suitable for some areas around the house more than others. The sound is clear anywhere you go, the intensity of the sound however, varies. In smaller rooms, such as kitchen or a bathroom, the sound is perfect. Surprisingly enough, it is loud enough for the living room as well. However, if you wish to use it outside in the garden or patio, the sound gets drowned out and the sound quality is lower. This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to enjoy the music, but it does mean that you are going to have to gather around the speaker rather than standing far from it. What I like and appreciate most in this product is that the sound is not distorted when you listen it on the max volume which is a rare quality not many speakers possess.

The battery life is as promoted, although after years of using it, it starts to demand a more frequent charging. It is normal for a battery to lower its quality as it ages, though. There are very few companies which are known for their continuous battery life quality and they certainly don’t produce a product with these features in this price range. Also, you shouldn’t leave it plugged in for 24 hours because you would damage the battery.

Our Verdict

All in all, this is an excellent product for the features it offers and the price range. It is sleek and top quality in its build. It is a tad on the pricier side, but overall we feel it’s worth it. To summarize, the Bose sound speaker II is even better in performance than the previous version and it produces the highest quality of audio in most wireless speakers from this category.
