This is a single (mono) speaker, but Bose provides an app (Bose Connect) that lets you pair multiple SoundLink speakers together for stereo, and it largely works well (as long as you're using the latest generation Bose bluetooth devices). I tested this with both iOS 10 and iOS 11 from two different devices (Apple iPhone 7 Plus and iPad Pro) and pairing was fast, and easy to change devices. Each time you connect your device, the SoundLink Micro announces that it is paired ("connected!"). I wish there was an option to disable the spoken prompt (maybe in a future firmware release). The Bose Connect app also lets you set language, name the device, and apply firmware updates. The first firmware update took 90 minutes (!) on a fast connection - perhaps Bose servers were overloaded.
All this is good. And - compared to other single-speaker offerings in this size - the sound is clear, balanced, and doesn't distort at higher volumes.
The problem comes when you compare this to Bose's other offerings - namely the trusty SoundLink Mini that has been my travel workhorse for years. Yes, the SoundLink Mini is larger and heavier (1 pound, 8 oz vs 10 oz) and it's not waterproof. But there is absolutely *no comparison* in sound quality. First of all, as a mono speaker, you're giving up sound separation and presence for portability and size and that is to be expected. But the real issue is that the Micro has a "thin" quality lacking not only in bass and but mid-range too. Yes, the sound is clear and balanced, but when you compare the sound of the SoundLink Micro to the Bose SoundLink Mini, the Micro sounds like a "Bose with a cold". I tried to upload a video that clearly demonstrates the sound difference but couldn't figure out how to attach it to this review.
My recommendation? Go for the SoundLink Mini unless you absolutely need the size and waterproof form factor that the SoundLink Micro offers.
Keeping the sound of my other Bose speakers in mind and reading other reviews for this speaker, I already had expectations as to what this would sound like, however, I was still surprised by the amount of bass the speaker was able to put out. And I don't mean loud, droning bass, but bass that makes a song sound like it's coming from a bigger speaker - everything sounds authentic. Drum kicks and other instruments come out convincingly with a nice punch - they don't sound tinny! The treble is effortlessly smooth but, importantly, never dull. The midrange is fine, but the treble and bass are somewhat more boosted, which isn't necessarily a bad thing on a speaker this size as the sound travels a bit farther that way (especially important when outside). Besides instrumentation, voices sound very convincing - this is a great audio book / podcast speaker, and I use it all the time for that since the speakers in my phone and laptop are anemic compared to the Bose. As for other reviews that complained about the treble or are trying to compare it to the Soundlink Mini (which I also have), they are unfounded in my opinion. The treble is fine, especially for a Bose speaker. And you don't lose anything with the Micro being a mono speaker compared to the Mini being stereo - while it's possible to tell the difference between the two from that perspective, it just isn't practical as you lose stereo separation if you are more than a few feet or otherwise are not facing the mini directly. The Micro sounds the same from most directions as audio fires up instead of from the front of the speaker.
I like listening to my music loud and usually end up wishing most speakers were louder but I was pleasantly surprised how loud the Micro gets. It gets much louder than the two Anker's, and is able to stay dynamic and punchy at those loud levels. Most speakers lose a substantial amount of bass or become shrill at top volumes, but the Bose is able to hold its own near max as its music processing limits the speaker from distortion, and something which differentiates itself from most other speakers, prevents it from sounding tinny at levels near max.
And unlike the Anker's, the Micro lasts for quite a while. At volumes above a little above half, I get around 6-7 hours easily, and get 8-12 at even lower volumes. This brings up another important point - the speaker sounds great even at low volumes. Bass is dynamically boosted at lower levels - keeping the sound full, which is a problem for many of these small speakers. In general, I find most smaller speakers don't sound any better than your phone's built-in speakers at low volumes. The Bose definitely has a nice presence at low volume - it makes it easy to fall asleep to if you use it before you go to bed.
I also have the SoundLink Revolve+, and until you reach the top volume of the Micro, the two speakers sound remarkably similar when paired in party or stereo mode. They only differ in certain tracks with very deep bass or when you push the Revolve+'s volume past the Micro's max volume - but listening to them in stereo is a surprisingly pleasant experience. It seems like the speakers volume match when they pair - so it sounds fairly balanced, you can however make one louder / quieter than the other by pushing the volume buttons separately on each speaker.
Looking over the reviews of Bose's other SoundLink speakers, including the Micro, most people probably need to skim the manual for the speaker as almost all features in the Bose Connect App can be performed by button presses on the speaker instead. For example, you can pair two SoundLink speaker's together without the App by pressing the bluetooth and volume up buttons together. Hold it long enough, and it will prompt you to press the bluetooth and volume down button on the other Soundlink speaker - and then they connect (you can also switch between party and stereo through button presses)! You can also disable voice prompts by pressing the volume + and - buttons until you hear 'Voice Prompts' off. You can easily find the manual by going to Bose.com -> Speakers -> SoundLink Micro and the manual is under their Support section.
As for its closest competition, the B&O P2, the Bose is fully waterproof while the former doesn't have any weather proofing. The battery on the Bose lasts much longer on maximum than the P2 (2-ish hours compared to a 5-ish for the Bose), even though the P2 isn't much louder than the Bose. And most importantly, the Bose is way cheaper and has a flatter frequency response than the P2. The P2 and the Anker's I have above have a large treble boost which, superficially, may sound nice for a few minutes, but quickly becomes tiring when the speaker is within a few feet from you since things become bright and shrill easily. In my opinion, the Anker Soundcore Sport is the next closest competition. It is pretty much the same size as the Micro, they're both IPX7 waterproof, and they both feature ~1.5 inch drivers with a passive radiator. It's also only 40 dollars compared to the Bose. However, the Sport is covered in a hard rubber and the buttons on that speaker have practically zero feedback - so 'click' or noticeable indent when pushed - which can make the speaker hard to use, especially when wet. Sound-wise, the Bose definitely wins - but the Anker puts up a good fight for being only $40. Primarily, it lacks the bass the Micro offers. As a plus, the Sport doesn't have the trouble boost it's smaller and non-waterproof brother, the Soundcore Mini and the B&O does - it sounds pretty flat across the midrange and treble - but just doesn't sound as full as the Micro. If you can afford it, the Bose is an easy choice over either Anker.
If something were to happen with my Micro, I would easily buy it again (even though it being the cheapest Bose speaker, it still isn't cheap and cost ~5x as much as the Anker speakers) because simply: it sounds better, the battery lasts much longer than many others in it's class (much longer than the Anker's max), and I don't doubt its durability. Lastly, the fact that Bose's newest SoundLink speakers can pair to two devices at once is awesome, I can stream music from my phone and pause it to play a YouTube video on my computer and the experience is just seamless. I also haven't had any problems with party/stereo mode - both have been flawless! And while I pick on the two Anker's I have, those are both excellent speakers in their own price ranges - but I definitely believe the Micro is a step up for the better.
Edit: I added some more about the Anker Soundcore products I have since those are the closest in competition next to the B&O P2, in my opinion.
Edit 2: 04/2018 - 6-ish months later. I've used this speaker every day since I got it back in October of 2017 (I listen to music a lot). It's probably my favorite bluetooth speaker that I have ever purchased (even including the original Soundlink Mini and newer and larger Revolve+, both of which I still have) not necessarily because it sounds better than the two - but it can definitely compete at lower volumes, but because of its small factor and waterproofing. This is the first expensive speaker that I have that actually feels durable - I don't worry about babying it like I do with the Mini and Revolve+. Along with the Revolve+, as I noted above - they both work surprisingly well when paired together in party/stereo mode - so if you need something louder than the Micro (and can afford it) I would definitely recommend getting the Revolve+ and pairing the two together so you can have something small for regularly every day use and something for a party on the weekends!
For some future next generation Micro, I would like to see it get louder within the same size and battery life and include USB audio like the Revolve+ does. I think both would go a long way for people who complain that it doesn't have an AUX cable.
This speaker is the ultimate multi-functioning sound machine. It's small enough to take anywhere and produces better and bigger sound than much larger and more expensive speakers. Bose really put a lot of thought into this one and produced another winner!
