Bose SoundLink Mini 2 review: A sound all-rounder

 

The Bose SoundLink Mini 2 is a worthwhile successor to the original

An impressive first Bluetooth speaker from Bowers & Wilkins that looks as stunning as it sounds. It’s a great choice if you need the portability and built-in battery, but at this price it enters the territory of multiroom audio systems, such as the...

Bose SoundLink Mini II review

 

Bose's diminutive Bluetooth speaker offers great portability and a weighty, bassy sound...

Full-bodied sound ; Weighty bass ; Portable

Lows lack precision and agility

If you’re after a fully portable speaker that doesn't scrimp on bass weight, the SoundLink Mini II could be for you

Bose SoundLink Mini II

 

The Bose SoundLink Mini II is a small Bluetooth speaker. It isn't small enough that you'll carry it with you every day, and you're definitely not going to fit it in a pocket.

Power and refinement from a tiny box ; Great charge dock

No aptX or NFC ; Cheaper alternatives are available

There are plenty of cheaper alternatives out there, but the Bose SoundLink Mini II is the best wireless speaker in this class right now.

Bose SoundLink Mini II Bluetooth speaker review

 

Big sound from a small body, but the proposition is made less attractive by a premium price

Excellent build quality ; Voluminous sound fit for a mid-sized room ; Voice guided Bluetooth pairing ; Long lasting battery life

Sound quality is limited by its size ; Dangerous price point with rivalling models offering expanded functionality at a lower price

Bose SoundLink Mini II

 

The tiny Bose SoundLink Mini II delivers the richest bass you'll find in a portable Bluetooth speaker this size, while managing to stay balanced with crisp highs.

Powerful audio performance with surprising bass response for its size. Well designed. Built-in speakerphone. Can connect to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously.

Digital signal processing changes bass response at different volume levels. Deceptively heavy. Aux audio cable isn't included.

It's pretty clear that the SoundLink Mini boosts bass, but mostly in the low-mids and lows rather than the sub-bass realm. In fact, sub-bass can get limited by the speaker's DSP, depending on the volume level. All this considered, this is probably the...

Bose SoundLink Mini II review

 

What's the best product Bose has ever made? That's hard to say, but a case can be made for the SoundLink Mini , the company's 2013 compact Bluetooth speaker that features impressive build quality and sound for its size and isn't too outrageously priced...

The Bose SoundLink Mini II is a very sleek, compact wireless Bluetooth speaker that sounds great for its small size. It also has excellent build quality with a unibody aluminum enclosure, and it includes a charging cradle that you can leave plugged in.

There's no real stereo separation, and you can't pair two speakers together.

Bose SoundLink Mini II remains one the few standout products in the ultracompact wireless speaker category, featuring a top-notch design and very good sound for its tiny size.

Bose Soundlink Mini II Review

 

The Bose SoundLink Mini II is one of the top wireless speakers because of its excellent audio quality and good battery life. You can expect it to produce full and balanced sound capable of filling any room in your house. However, the lack of durability...

The speaker’s audio quality is among the best available.

It isn’t dust-resistant or water-resistant.

The Bose SoundLink Mini II is one of the best-sounding wireless speakers available, but because it’s missing basic durability features, it isn’t very rugged and is best used indoors.

The Bose SoundLink Mini II is one of the best Bluetooth speakers available. It produces great, full and balanced sound that provides ample bass even though the speaker is so small. The speaker's expansive volume and sound make it seem bigger than it...

This speaker has great sound quality.

It is not water resistant.

Don't let the small size of this speaker fool you – this is one of the most full-sounding speakers that is great for in home use.
