Bose SoundLink Micro

 

A great portable speaker . Bose SoundLink Micro .

Compact design ; Close to indestructable ; Good sound for the price

Doesn't do 360 sound ; Not quite as load or clear as the Wonderboom

An excellent portable speaker that’s ideal for close outdoor and shower listening.

Bose SoundLink Micro review: A nice price cut makes it even better

 

Bose's smallest and most affordable wireless speaker is arguably the best sounding speaker in its tiny size class.

The Bose SoundLink Micro is a pocket-sized Bluetooth speaker that is able to play louder and produce richer and louder sound than competing micro wireless speakers. It's fully waterproof, has a built-in microphone for speakerphone calls, plus an...

Battery life is only average. Bigger portable speakers will deliver similar or better sound for the same money or less.

The well-built and travel-friendly Bose SoundLink Micro is arguably the best sounding speaker in its tiny size class.

Bose SoundLink Micro review: The rugged speaker you can take anywhere

 

It's small, it's cute and it's rugged, but the Bose SoundLink Micro isn't the best sounding tough speaker around

Ruggedised and portable design ; Multifunctional voice-assistant button

Terrible sound quality ; Doesn't float ; Dubious strap

If you’re looking for a portable tough speaker, I’d advise you avoid the SoundLink Micro and buy the £85 UE Wonderboom instead. Or, if you’re looking for an even more portable speaker, go for the Philips BT3900 EverPlay – a pocket-sized speaker that...

Bose SoundLink Micro review

  (Rating Hidden)

The compact and rugged SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker from Bose has a tear-proof strap to help you secure it to a bike, bag, or belt when you're on your travels. It's waterproof too, but does this wireless speaker sound good enough to deserve a...

Bose SoundLink Micro review

 

A tiny Bluetooth speaker you can literally carry in your pocket sounds like a great concept, but going small -- and I mean really small -- usually means sacrificing sound quality, or more specifically bass performance. Bose's SoundLink Micro, the...

A little pricey and battery life is only average.

While it may not be a bargain at its price point, the travel-friendly Bose SoundLink Micro is well-built and arguably the best sounding speaker in its size class.

Bose SoundLink Micro

 

The Bose SoundLink Micro speaker delivers an impressive Bluetooth audio performance for its size, but its price feels a tad high.

Strong audio performance, with rich lows and well-defined highs. Waterproof. Good speakerphone mic.

A little overpriced. No aux input.

The Bose SoundLink Micro is certainly one of the better-sounding speakers we've tested in its size category. At $110, though, it definitely faces stiff competition. The hardest thing for us to reconcile is that the SoundLink Micro is basically twice as...

Bose Soundlink Micro review: This very tiny Bluetooth speaker delivers great big sound

 

Anyone looking for a good-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker that can almost fit in your pocket should audition this Bose model.

Rugged and well weatherized ; Produces surprisingly pleasant audio with good separation, given its small dimensions ; Can be paired with a second Soundlink Micro for stereo sound

Monophonic sound, unless paired with a second speaker ; Noticeable low-frequency distortion at higher volume levels ; No auxiliary audio input or output

The Bose Soundlink Micro is a pricey but capable Bluetooth speaker. Provided the limitations caused by its diminutive size are understood, it’ll be a rugged, highly-portable audio device that will serve users well.

Bose SoundLink Micro Review

 

Great sound for a small speaker, but the short battery life feels limiting in something so portable

Good sound quality, Completely waterproof, lightweight and portable

Short battery life

The is a great little speaker, but some may find its short battery life of 5 hours somewhat limiting. The is just as portable and lasted 14 hours in our battery life test, but its soud quality is slightly inferior.

Very impressed

 

This speaker is very impressive for what it is. Sound quality and actual volume it produces is quite surprising. Product feels like a premium item and the strap on the back makes it very versatile for attaching to various things. I currently have it...
