Bose's impressive Bluetooth speaker gets a touch better
7 January 2013
Summary: While the SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II may no longer be in a class by itself, it's still near the top of the portable Bluetooth speaker category.
Pros: For such a small, portable Bluetooth speaker, the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II sounds great and plays impressively loud without distorting. It also has a built-in rechargeable battery, an auxiliary input, a rugged design, and the option to swap out protective covers (one of which is included).
Cons: The speaker is somewhat pricey and has no speakerphone capabilities. Also, its battery life could be a little better.
Summary: Most portable speakers trade off sound quality for size and weight. Not the SoundLink II. It may be on the expensive side, but if you want big-speaker sound, make sure you read our Bose SoundLink II review.
