Comments about Bose® SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® Speaker - Silver:
Like all Bose products, the sound is incredible, exceeding what you would expect for the price. My only complaint is that we have two of these, and you are not able to have them both play the same song from an iPad. You have to choose which one you want to have play the music as opposed to having them play the same song simultaneously. If they made that possible, it would be a perfect product.

great sound from a small speaker
I have two , the original " Mini" that I use for my home and anywhere I wish to take it. and I recently purchased the "Mini II" which I keep on our boat to use when we are anchored . Both work and sound great. Just what you would expect from Bose !
I love my little powerful speaker!!!!!!
I am sooooo happy with my purchase! I don't need anything else! Every time someone comes to my place and here's my music playing through my speaker, they want to go and purchase one for themselves. I won't be needing any other stereo component at all!!!
Love this speaker!
A year and a half into our relationship, I don't know how I lived my life without this little guy. From patio time to parties to hotel rooms to cleaning sprees it never disappoints. I use it daily and it has more than paid for itself. If you love music and want a compact speaker with amazing sound, don't hesitate to get one!

Nothing "Mini" at all with this engineering marvel
By Artie Audiophile
As a musician, singer and overall audiophile who goes back to the ol' days of boom boxes, I must say this unit packs power. I ran the "Pepsi Challenge" with the Mini II vs the UE Boom, Beatspill, etc and there is no comparison. You get pounding beats for hiphop, bass for r&b, hi hats and mids with so much clarity and no distortion at higher levels. I even use it in my car because it sounds better than my car stereo. It's portable for my softball games where everyone enjoys the clear music and I commute on my bike with it and people see me enjoy exercising even more..save time..get this unit and don't look back.

Just what I expected, and very satisfied.
I was on the hunt for a small portable unit with decent sound, projection, and long battery life. I listened to dozens of other portables that varied in size, performance, and price range. This unit won hands down. I am very satisfied with the battery life, as that is important to me. Seems like I get the full 10 hours out of it, although so far I only use it for 30 minutes to an hour or so at a time, so I haven't really kept that close tabs on it. I mainly use it in close proximity, and never expected it to be anything more than for my personal enjoyment. In other words, I never expected it to be something to drive a party. It's perfect for the office, garage, small gathering, or on my old work truck dashboard. As someone else mentioned, it "isn't terribly stereo", but I am satisfied with the apparent 'depth' of the sound image. This unit meets/exceeds my expectations as a small portable system. It sounds great, has a substantial feel to it, and appears well built.

Was nice...while it was functional
After about 6 months to 1 year, the speakers started turning off randomly. If not charging/placed in the dock, it now turns off every 5-10 minutes. Searching forums this appears to a common problem and the warranty is useless. When in the dock, it makes a horrible noise at the same frequency. Turning it back on became so frustrating I just stopped using it. The sound quality is good for this size compared to other products, but pales in comparison to, say, the sounddock. I would not recommend this product, in fact, would highly suggest you avoid.

Over a year
For almost 2 years, I've used this speaker daily. I carry it from room to room, leave it in the kitchen and clearly hear in back of the house, carry it to work and plug into a computer for classroom use. It's great with classical, jazz, swing, country, and classic rock, audio books, podcasts, tv, It's well worth every penny paid for it and so incredibly versatile!

To start, I have to say I'm a bit prejudiced in Bose's favor. I have long (decades) been a fan of their products and have tried other branding but usually aren't as satisfied with the results. Once again I am absolutely satisfied with this little gem. Its small. The size of a 7 inch shoe (good things do come in small packages so don't be offended if you have a 7" shoe). The sound is typically "Bose"- well balanced and surprising. Place this on the floor or under furniture and away for a bit more base. But even so it doesn't lack base wherever you place it. Though it does better overall at a distance or pointed away I think. I'm a purist. Bluetooth as a platform does not by any means transfer music from the source in the best quality and don't get me started on the dismal MP3 format. But none the less, preadjusted leveling and amplification is spot on. If you use an app that has leveling output and such, you can adjust this if you like but again, it isn't necessary. The only caveat is its weight. It's a hefty pound and a half. So don't go day hiking with it and all your other gear (ask someone else to carry it).

I recently purchases the Mini II and I love it. The sound is amazing and it is priced right.
