Length: 7:58 Mins
UPDATE: Jul 28, 2013 - I've just reviewed the BoseSoundlink Mini and it has surprisingly good sound, I actually prefer the sound of the Mini to the SoundLink and SoundLink II. Both the SoundLink and SoundLink II can produce louder sound and both have more bass. But you should definitely see if you can listen to the SoundLink Mini before making a decision because it is a pretty amazing sounding speaker for its size. Here is the ink to my review... http://www.amazon.com/review/R2LM0EQRW8AWY6

UPDATE: 9/27/2012 - Bose has recently released the new SoundLink Bluetooth Wireless speaker II. I have reviewed that separately but simply want to say that it is an evolutionary revision with little change as compared to this SoundLink. In fact, the apparent lower pricing of the original SoundLink would represent a wiser purchase, in my opinion. It could be argued that the new bi-fold design of the cover on the new SoundLink II is actually not as useful as the cover on this SoundLink. See my review of the SoundLink II for all the juicy details.SoundLink® Bluetooth® Mobile Speaker II - Nylon Now back to my original review...


My rating is closer to 3.5 than 3 stars but Amazon only allows full-star ratings.

I own several bluetooth wireless speaker systems, the most recent of which is this Bose Soundlink. But I also own the Altec Lansing iMW725 inMotion Air Universal Wireless Speaker and considering its sound quality and price, its an extremely worthy consideration.

I am writing this about five hours after having received the Bose SoundLink Wireless Speaker. I opened the box, took the speaker out and in 2 minutes paired it with my Toshiba Thrive Tablet. I then played some classical music and said to myself, "Oh my goodness!" The sound of these speakers is amazing. The violins sound clear and distinct. Horns sound undistorted and smooth. The piano sounds like you are in the first row of the concert hall. The bass is at just the right mix with the mid-level and higher sounding instruments. The clarity of the sound is what stands out.

I then paired up an IPOD touch and played "Never My Love" by the Association. The vocals were clear and distinct and the instrumentation blended in very nicely. I am no audiophile but I am pretty discriminating. At several volume levels, these speakers sound great. They are among the best I have ever listened to.

With all of this, these speakers are portable because of the built-in battery. You can take these anywhere and have this quality of music. Amazing!

I have not seen any indication of some issues a few critics have mentioned. There was virtually no distortion and the sound did not seem to me to be compressed and equalized as some have observed.

Yes, you are paying a premium for a Bose product, but if you want quality, then this product is worth it.

I look forward to many hours of immersion in my favorite music, sounding very clear and true.

Bose hit a home run with this. I want to make it clear that this is an honest review and I have no connection with Bose whatsoever. Buy this and enjoy. I would give it six stars if I could.

I recently purchased a Jambox because I was looking for a small wireless speaker that I could just throw in a bag and take wherever. While the size of the Jambox was nice, I always felt that it lacked in sound quality and felt the max volume was much too quiet. Thankfully Bose introduced this product while I was still in the return period with the Jambox, so I returned the Jambox and payed the extra in order to get the Soundlink. I was not completely sure what to expect from the Soundlink. I have one of the Sounddock speakers, and the sound from that device is amazing, so I was not expecting it to sound as good due to the smaller size, but just wanted something that surpassed the Jambox in volume and sound quality.

When I got the Soundlink home and tried it out, I was completely surprised. This little thing sounds amazing! As some other reviewers said, this really does make the Jambox sound like a toy in comparison. It really is quite amazing that something this small and portable produces audio that sounds this good. It is significantly larger than the Jambox, but its size still makes it very easy to take around in a bag. If you are looking for a portable, wireless, battery-powered speaker, you will not find a better one than the Soundlink Mobile speaker from Bose.

Bottom line: If you can afford this speaker, BUY IT!

If you can afford it and LOVE music and need to play it in odd sites, away from electicity, BUY IT!

I'm a long, long time Bose fan. Bought 3 Bose Wave Radio/CD players, 13 years ago. Still perform flawlessly, never a skip to the CD's and the original batteries in the remote have NEVER BEEN REPLACED!!! That is a lot of *bang*, for my buck!

I was completely unaware that Bose had come out with a portable Bluetooth speaker until Hallmark snuck one of the commercials for the Soundlink Speaker into one of their Christmas movie presentations! Darn them, anyway!!!! I flipped back to that commercial FIVE TIMES, mezmerized by what Bose was claiming. Crap! I thought I had all my Christmas shopping done this year! :)

I'm lucky: we have a Bose store 9 miles from our cottage, in Michigan City, Indiana. I hightailed it down to that store, calling first to see if they carried this, and greeted the poor salesperson at the door when she was opening up the store. To be honest, although the name Bose was attached to it, I wasn't expecting much. I have more battery operated and Bluetooth micro speakers than I can shake a tablet/MP3 player at and although "nice" they just can't or won't project the sound. The cheap models are great in a silent room with no fan or heater/air conditioner running. But, add that ambient noise or actual people in a room, and one normal conversation can drown out the cheaper speakers.

I really wanted to try out my own devices, and was worried that Bose wouldn't allow me to link them up to their Bluetooth model. I was SO wrong! The wonderful salesperson said, "Sure! Give them a try; then you can see how easy it is".
