Will do in a pinch but price is high for mediocre sound
17 November 2011
Summary: I have read far to many reviews about the great sound quality to conclude that there are obviously quite a few people that have lower expectations of sound quality than myself. The sound from the SoundLink is extremely muddy. The only way I could get acceptable sound was by fiddling with EQ settings from computer or choosing the bass reducer EQ setting on my iPhone. Even then the overall quality is just so so.
Summary: It's Bose, so it's pricey, and looks dead sexy. But ultimately, I couldn't get over the fact that it sounded like I was listening to everything in mono (as opposed to stereo) Even though there's 2 speakers, they're just too close together to give proper sound. I contacted Bose and asked if I could add a speaker, and they said no. And then, of course, I had trouble getting the Bluetooth to sync properly. Had to keep forgetting and re-finding my iPad.
Very inferior to Soundlink 2, or any other Bose product I have tried

Summary: I feel bad writing this because generally I am really convinced by the quality of the Bose range. We have two Soundwave systems, a Soundwave Radio, two sets of Companions (one with a sub woofer) and a Soundlink 2, so we do put our money where our mouth is! I had high expectations for the Soundlink mini, and in many ways it is great: beautiful design, incredibly compact, very portable and packs a lot of punch. If anything it is at least as powerful as the Soundlink 2.
Summary: The sound quality of this device is excellent, no question. Getting the device to connect however, can be a real problem. All too often i'm turning bluetooth on and off or re-starting my computer / phone in order for the SoundLink Mini to pair. Be warned.
Summary: I am amazed by its high quality sound by such a small speaker. I use it with my iPhone or iPad, and listen to it in the house, garden, and parks with such joy. Its very good is much appreciated.
Liian voimakas bassotoisto, joka säröytyy kohtalaisellakin äänenvoimakkuudella.

Summary: Otsikko puhuu karua kieltään. Taajuuskorjaimella tilannetta voi korjata melko hyvin, mutta bluetoothin välityksellä tämä ei joka laitteella onnistukaan. Paikoitellen toisto on lämmin, yllättävänkin vakuuttava, mutta materiaalista riippuen sitä leimaa voimakas ja rasittava matalien taajuuksien korostus. Pahimmillaan tämä aiheuttaa äänen säröytymistä jo maltillisillakin äänenvoimakkuuksilla.
