Best Features of Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II

Think that a speaker can’t have bass? Well, you couldn’t be more wrong! This amazing speaker has big sound, with bass included, on a very small body. For a full listening experience, you won’t be disappointed with this. The speaker is mini, so you can take it with you no matter where you are going. Phones and tablets connect to the speaker easily with Bluetooth, so you no longer have to mess around with different cords for different phones. There is a built in speakerphone, so you can take calls on it. Also, the range is 30 feet for Bluetooth, which is nice so you don’t have to just sit right next to the speaker all night. The battery is a lithium ion one, and it plays for up to 10 hours on a full charge! You won’t be without your music at all.

What’s Included

The Bose speaker comes with your purchase, and it also comes with a charging cradle. It’s completely wireless.


It’s pretty hard to lose anything with this speaker because there are no wires. No more do you have to search for the specific charging cable. This speaker comes with a charging cradle, which is so nice and easy to use when you’re at home. Also, the speaker is vintage but modern, so it can fit in any house without any issues style wise. The sound is so much better than other speakers out there.


The cost is a bit more than others on the market at $179. However, it is a high quality portable speaker.

Final Verdict

If price isn’t much of an issue, you really need this speaker. It is probably one of the highest quality out there on the market, and the sound is really nice to listen to when it mixes with the bass. For the best parties, you need this speaker to play your music.

It’s the little speaker with the big, huge voice. The Sound Link Mini Bluetooth speaker II provides complete sound with dramatically deeper lows than you ‘d get out of a speaker that suits the palm of your hand. And due to the fact that it’s cordless and ultra-compact, it’s easy to take Bose sound anywhere.

Customer Reviews

Better than expected.

Based on a stupid amount of research and reviews I purchased the Bose SoundLink Mini II and the JBL Charge 3 for review to replace an aging Monster Clarity Bluetooth speaker I had been using for beaches/pools/vacations. Disclaimer: I have never liked Bose anything. I have always thought their product was overrated junk marketed to less than savvy consumers. After reading multiple reviews from sources I trusted, I landed on the MiniLink II and the JBL Charge 3 as best options for my needs. Outside of my mentioned purchases I informally “reviewed” several other Bluetooth speakers owned by friends. None of them were worthy of mention here.

Nicely updated Bluetooth Speaker

I bought the original Soundlink Mini about three years ago and have been very happy with it. I used it at home and at my office. In my office, I had to keep it at a low volume but it never sounded muffled and delivered clear and crisp highs and sonorous lows. At home with the volume cranked up, it never failed to deliver. When the updated version came out, I hesitated but the updates made it worth jumping into the newer version. My original unit is now gracing my sister’s home.

Brand Bias or not, this little speaker is the best in its class.

Let me start off by saying that I am both a tech junkie and music lover. Sorry, no audio industry experience or sound engineer degrees to tout here, I’m just a guy who likes music and stereos. Everything from HiFi systems to desktop speakers to PA gear to little bluetooth speakers like this Bose Soundlink Mini II.

I tried various brands like JBL only to find that they are nothing close …

I have a Bose Wave Music System from 10 years ago, which I never replaced with any other speakers. For serious classical musicians, this sound system is a godsend, except that mine doesn’t come with bluetooth. I wanted to buy a portable bluetooth speaker that is equivalent to my Wave system. After checking out reviews about portable bluetooth speakers, I tried various brands like JBL only to find that they are nothing close to my Bose Wave system and not worth purchasing. Many reviews emphasized importance of base. In my humble opinion, ‘loud base” is not good enough to be acclaimed as superior. My friend let me borrow his original SoundLink Mini, which I found best among all of the portable speakers I had tired. However, it didn’t have features like multiple device connectability or speaker phone. Oh, boy, don’t I love Bose Soundlink Mini 2! Although the sound doesn’t match the one of Bose Wave (please know it is portable and tiny), the quality is significantly better than other portable speakers. I can switch between my iPhone, iPad and Mac (up to 8 devices the manual says) instantly. I can also answer calls directly from the device and even connect with Siri with one touch. In terms of colors, I debated whether or not to get black. I am glad I ordered pearl. I love the sophisticated tone of color that goes along the theme of my room. This is one of the best purchases on Amazon that I made in recent years.

Better than the last in every way!!

This speaker fell from the roof of my Blazer while I was driving 50mph. It wacked the ground hard and started to somersault and shed pieces and still plays music like it did before.

Great Sound at Any Volume

I’m really happy with this product. I was hesitant to purchase it, because the price is a little beyond what I’d consider to be in my budget. But, after trying a number of less expensive options and returning them all, I finally decided to bite the bullet and order this instead.

this is what I’ve been missing

I love speakers, but not in an audiophile sense, I just like to have speaks everywhere so I can hear music everywhere. I thought I’d never want to drop a lot of money on speakers until I heard music through my friend’s Bose (this same model). I just knew I needed to wake up to music coming out of this speaker. It’s load without distortion, nice bass, and the bluetooth has good range. I chose this one over the other Soundlink simply because this one looked like it was made of more durable material.

Great sound – definitely better than the Beats Pill & Magic Box

My Requirements: Bluetooth speaker, great sound, small-medium size, horizontally rectangle shape more or less, black, so no cool shapes or colors, and awesome Amazon ratings.
