SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II
Goes where you go.
Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it has to sound that way. The SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II delivers full sound with dramatically deeper lows than you’d expect from a speaker that fits in the palm of your hand. And because it’s wireless and ultra-compact, it’s easy to take Bose sound anywhere. The built-in speakerphone lets you take calls out loud with clear sound. And voice prompts make Bluetooth pairing easy. Plays unplugged for hours and can be charged from most USB power sources.

In summary (and to my surprise): the MiniLink II produced the highest quality audio of any wireless speaker device I have auditioned. It is the unit I kept, and will continue to use. For context, I almost exclusively listen to Spotify on this device, and almost exclusively around the pool. From a music reproduction perspective, nothing I have heard in this price range matches the MiniLink II for wireless sound. It emits truly high-quality audio. However, it is not as loud as the JBL Charge 3. If you are looking for pure volume, the Charge 3 is easily louder. Does this matter? Well, if you are simply looking for something you can hear at a loud pool, the Charge 3 is the better option. It does not have the low-end or fullness of the MiniLink II, nor does it as accurately reproduce audio, but it can attain more audible volumes at large gatherings.
I'm not entirely sure these are the best two devices to compare, but if you are looking for great audio, go with the Bose. If you are looking for loudness, go with the Charge 3.
Nobody gave me anything to do this review.
The ability to use it as a speakerphone is a handy feature. Callers have noted that my voice sounds clear. An incoming call can be answered (or refused) with a tap of a button on top of the unit.
For me, the more noteworthy improvement is in the Bluetooth implementation. This newer unit has the ability to remember up to eight paired devices and actively (and concurrently) be paired with two of them. When you turn it on, the unit announces the battery level and to which two devices it is paired. (The audible prompts can be disabled.) At that point, it will play content from the first device which is outputting audio content. If that device stops and the other device starts playing, the speaker will seamlessly switch to that second device. My device automatically connects to my laptop and smartphone. It remembers my Kindle Fire and, if the laptop is off, will connect to the Kindle. Very clever. Bose has replicated this Bluetooth implementation on their other devices.
They have also increased the battery life and changed from a proprietary charging connector to a standard mini-USB port. All-in-all a worthy update.
Here's what we need to clear off the plate before we get started. This is a $200 speaker designed to be portable, and should be treated as such. There are critical reviews in here that are pegging this speaker next to sound systems that do not even serve the same purpose as the Bose SoundLink Mini II. I have a few other systems to serve other purposes in my life: a Bower & Wilkins + McIntosh stereo system, KRK Rokit Monitors, just to name the two most enjoyed setups I have.
But here's the thing. I needed something portable. Sleek. Reliable. Something I could carry around my apartment from my bedroom to my kitchen to my bathroom. And that same speaker needed to have the ability to be thrown into my backpack when I go to my girlfriend's house or off to a friend's place for the weekend. I looked at other speakers, such as the Beats Pill and UE Boom. Which did I like best? The Bose SoundLink Mini II. I'm not a Bose fan, it's just not in my pedigree. I had a few products from Bose in the past and simply wasn't impressed by the hype (Bose 3-2-1, the original noise cancelling headphones, Bose 802 Series II PA/DJ speakers).
The SoundLink Mini II has since removed my brand bias. It's simply amazing. And to make a long story short, I love it. My roommate had the previous generation SoundLink Mini and I enjoyed connecting my iPhone to it when we had social gatherings in our old loft apartment. Back then it filled the living room with more than enough sound with 10 people in the room to converse over. I have since moved to a smaller apartment, but needed something I could listen to in all rooms of my current living space- something I could not do with my KRK Rokit 5 setup which I would connect to via AirPlay.
This little speaker provides great sound, albeit a bit too bassy for my taste. Solution: I set the Spotify EQ to "Bass Reduction" and the output is just where I want it to be. I listen to all genres of music, but 70% of the time focus my attention on electronic, Top40, and Hip Hop, and this speaker does just the thing for me. The added convenience of a Micro USB charging port as well as dual bluetooth connection makes using this speaker so much easier than the last version. Happy to see Bose listened to the critics before releasing their second revision of the speaker.
I have had this speaker for a mere 4 days and am very happy with it. I purchased the OEM Bose rubber bumper case for it, as well as a third party soft case, and now I'm ready to bring this where ever I need to go. It's the perfect tool for a city dweller on the run like myself, but this is easily at home on any kitchen countertop or office desk.
Don't hesitate to purchase this- the other speakers in its class (key point when comparing this speaker) simply cannot compete with the Bose. Sure, you can buy the cheaper UE Boom 2, but it's also cheaper in build quality and aesthetics. Leave the UE Boom for college freshman. For those of us who have matured a bit and enjoy both elegant design language and good sound quality out of such a small, portable unit, go for the Bose. You absolutely will not regret it! Happy listening, Eric.
