Solidly built, sounds good, pairs well with laptop
20 November 2013
Summary: Solid piece of equipment which "liberated" my music library on my laptop. My whole family can now enjoy my collection without headphones, and not relying on the little tinny speakers built into my laptop. Sound quality is very good. However, don't expect stereo separation from this small box. It seems very well built, but is more heavy than I expected. I wouldn't toss this into a light cloth bag and go- it is more like carrying around a brick.
Pros: very good sound quality quality construction portable
Cons: too expensive (like all bose products) heavier than i expected blue tooth is a little finicky in my opinion
Summary: Porchased this for my wife's birthday to use with her IPod. What a great sounding speaker for such a small package. Have since sync'd it with our smart phones, tablet and laptop. Did alot of research and listened to a number of similar products for alot less money and this is definitely worth the extra cost. I have read a number of reviews and have determined the complaint of sync drop out is not the speaker but the sync'd device.
Pros: great sound compact & very portable easy to use quality built
Summary: I bought the first Bose soundlink. It was great, I really loved it. My 2 complaints would have been the power adapter was too big and there was no remote. The soundlink 2 came out and I was tempted but I waited. The mini came out and I was more then tempted, anything smaller is a huge bonus for me. I read reviews. Then went to Best Buy to test it. I bought it immediately. Sounds great, the power adapter is small and very smart.
Summary: I bought Bose Soundlink Mini because I like to listen to my Pandora on my IPad. My friend recommended this to me, and wow! I can't believe such small thing can produce such amazing sound! I was blown away! I was offered The Beats Pill at an AT&T store for a cross promotion (only $100 with purchase of HTC smart phone). I tested it and it seemed pretty cool at the time, but I didn't take the offer. Now that I got this, there is no comparison.
Summary: Before this Bose came out I spent about an hour at Best Buy deciding between the Beats Pill, Jambox and the Jabra Soulmate. Went with the Soulmate. It had the best overall sound according to my ear for what was available at the time. Jambox and the Beats were just to tinny. Soulmate had the best balance. Had the Bose Soundlink Mini been available at that time I would definitely have chosen it. This has amazing sound for its size. The build quality is excellent.
Summary: I was looking for a portable device to take to work and this little device answered my calls. Solid construction, Nice deep clear sound with a nice balance of highs and lows. The sound also depends on the quality of the recording. Its best to record high quality mp3's to get the best sound. The battery last me about 10hours although I listen to mostly talk radio so the sound is not loud. I own several bose products so the quality of this product was no surprise to me.
Considering the size, this speaker has incredible sound. Easy to use too.

Summary: Very often I'll be listening to something in my car, via the Bluetooth connection on my phone. When I get to my destination the pristine sound of my car's audio system gets replaced by the terrible sound quality of my cell phone. This Bose SoundLink Mini is the perfect solution. It is small enough that I can keep it handy, and it simply and seamlessly takes over the audio connection from my car, from my phone's Bluetooth.
