Product Details

Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker, Model SLMINI

Today's digital devices put a world of music in the palm of your hand, but often without a way to truly enjoy listening. Headphones are great if you want to listen alone, and portable speakers let you share your music but can be bulky. Combining supreme portability and stunning audio quality, the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker lets you pack a party in your pocket, purse or just about anywhere your phone goes.

The Bose SoundLink Mini is deceptively small, and made to travel. At just 7.1" in length, it's only slightly longer than many of today's large-screen smartphones. A smooth aluminum shell and flush-mounted buttons give the SoundLink a sleek, minimalist design that looks great and will easily slide into a bag. Take it to go, and rest assured knowing the Bose Sound Link Mini's rechargeable battery will give you up to seven hours of playtime.

While it may be small, the Bose Soundlink Mini is no slouch with sound. Proprietary Bose speaker technology gives this portable speaker system the high-quality sound Bose is known for. Just like the rest of their compact speakers, the SoundLink puts out surprisingly big sound, with a full range of tones, from clear highs to deep lows. You'll get the kind of natural-sounding audio that normally comes from full-sized speaker systems.

Operating the Bose SoundLink is also super simple. Activate the speaker system by pressing the Bluetooth button, select the SoundLink on your device, and you're ready to listen. A functional range of up to 30 feet lets you roam freely while the music plays. Control volume through the SoundLink speaker, and everything else on your phone. And if you've got a non-Bluetooth device you'd like to listen from, the Bose SoundLink Mini speaker system lets you connect it via a standard 3.5mm input jack.

Thank you for your wonderful sound of music. My beautiful 94 year-old Mom loves to watch classical music performances on her iPad. The deep, rich sound of the SoundLink Mini II brings the orchestra into the cozy comforts of her home. One thought: You may want to consider buttons with a "clicking sensation" for each interval of sound. I believe this would give customers more control with the volume and mute settings. Thank you for giving us your best. Merry Christmas!

I've had this for about one month and love the sound quality and ease of use. I have been struggling with charging it recently though. Even though the indicator light says the unit is charging it doesn't progress past "battery low" or occasionally it's reaches 20% even after charging overnight. I tried the reset suggestion mentioned above but it didn't work for me. Other suggestions?

Excellent Bluetooth speaker

By 

from Undisclosed

I purchased at a Bose outlet about two years ago as a refurbished unit. I use this as a portable speaker throughout my house to play music through my ipod. I use it in the bathroom when getting ready, working inside the house, outside or in the garage for background music. My stereo system / home theater is respectable (Denon, PSB, NAD) so being used to that kind of sound, I needed a Bluetooth speaker with a realistic sound quality I would be satisfied with. Happy to say this Bose Bluetooth speaker sounds great (for a Bluetooth speaker) - natural and easy on the ears with even emphasis throughout the low / mid / high range. The battery life is excellent. The build quality is solid - metal chassis. It is amazing how much sound comes out of such a small speaker. Good job Bose.

Over 1 1/2 years and still bumping strong!

By 

from Undisclosed

I originally bought the series 1 but the battery failed and traded up to the series 2. Both are great units, but the series 2 was the clear winner with Bluetooth answering and audio controls for pausing skipping etc. I bring this speaker everywhere! You name it! Home, work, from the beach to the backyard it's been everywhere. I'm a professional mechanic and I use it while working on cars and wherever I put it, that's where it stays thanks to the low center of gravity. If you want portability and sound quality look no further. I've tried others in the same price range, but this I believe is the undisputed champion. Good job Bose!

Perfect for my need

By 

from Undisclosed

I bought this speaker on Christmas 2015, thus I am using it for a little more than one year and I absolutely love it. I wanted a small portable speaker with decent audio quality because I noticed that at home I do a lot of casual music listening with my portable devices that carry with me in every room, I listened to this product in a store and both my wife and I liked it right away. Before buying it I listened to other speakers in the same category, at the end I decided for this because I own another Bose product (the SoundWave) and for its pleasant aesthetic. I really like the sound of this little guy, you just cannot squeeze nothing more from something so small. Sometimes the bass are a little too overpowering but it is sufficient to change its position to get a more balanced sound. Of course because the two internal drivers are so close to each other you don't get any stereo separation, unless you pair to a computer and you put it right close to the keyboard. It is easy to use, easy to pair. There is no mic therefore you cannot use it to make calls if you are using a smartphone, but I do not need that feature. I appreciate that it remembers a lot of pairing devices, between me and my wife we have many smartphones, tablets and laptops around, it never failed to connect to any of them. Battery life is great, the charging cradle could be a nuisance if you travel (you just have to carry it with you instead of a simple USB cable), maybe this issue could be fixed in a next release. The look is great, we have the dark gray one and it is really non intrusive even on the bed stand where we put the charging cradle. It is small enough that fits well in the hand, the material is made of has a nice touch feeling. The bottom had a thick rubber pad to avoid scratching the surface where it stands, but it easily collects dust and small particles, I usually scrap it passing the palm of my hand before setting it down. Everything considered, I highly recommend this product.

Love this speaker

By 

from Undisclosed

I bought one of these speakers for my husband for Christmas. He loves it! As others have wrote in reviews that there spouses have taken over there speaker. Well I didn't take his over but I did purchase one for myself. You can't believe the "big" sound that comes out of this little speaker. Other pluses are -connecting via Bluetooth is simple! We've had other wireless speakers where you would have to disconnect and forget the saved Bluetooth speaker from you device before someone else could pair with it. Thanks for such a great product!

Disappointed!!!

By 

from Undisclosed

I bought this speaker specifically to use as a speakerphone for my mobile phone. I use a competitive product right now and I thought Bose would be much better audio quality. The audio level on full volume is so low on the Bose. A small speaker worth 10% of what I paid for this Bose is much better for my use case. When it comes to music from the phone the audio is loud and much better. This does not meet my use case. I am really disappointed that this is sitting on my desk and am using my old speaker for my calls!!!!! Here is my recommendation, see if you can do something on the software and push that as an update to increase the volume when used as a speakerphone. If that works I will change this back to a full 5 stars
