The Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker on the Market
The Bose-SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II is another exceptional product by the renowned audio and sound company Bose. My overall rating of this product can be broken down into a total of 4 different criteria. These criteria are sound quality, durability, compatibility, and portability.
The sound quality of this product is absolutely fantastic compared to other portable Bluetooth speakers on the market. Bose is known for creating products that produce a full sound with very high audio clarity, and this product is no exception. Even while playing music that contains a high assortment of different instruments, all of the sounds are evenly balanced and work cohesively to present music the way its supposed to sound.
The SoundLink mini II is amongst the most durable of portable Bose products. I have personally owned this product for about 6 months, and despite the amount of times Ive dropped the speaker on hard surfaces, the quality of the product remains unaffected.
Whether your intention is to use the SoundLink Mini II with a mobile phone, a computer, or any other Bluetooth device, incompatibility is not going be an issue. I have flawlessly been able to pair the speaker with my phone, my laptop, and the cellphones of several different friends. Once the speaker is powered on, all one needs to do is pair their device with the speaker in order to be connected. Once the speaker is connected to your paired device, you can control the volume of the speaker directly from the device you are using.
The SoundLink Mini II is approximately the size of a water bottle. Its dimensions are 2 inches by 7.1 inches by 2.3 inches, and it weighs less than 2 and a half pounds. When the weather is nice, I often take this Bluetooth speaker with me on hikes. Because its so compact, the speaker can easily be placed in the water bottle carrier of my backpack in order to listen to high quality music out loud and on the go. The wireless range of this product reaches up to 30 feet; therefore, the speaker is very convenient if you want to walk about a room and play music without having to be in close proximity.
One minor concern I had before purchasing this product was the price, which is set at $200. However, because this product has remained in the same condition as when it was newly purchased, the price is very appropriate for the overall quality of the product. The SoundLink Mini II has withstood the test of time, and continues to provide exceptional sound without the fear of diminishing sound quality.
Overall, I would give this product a nearly perfect score out of 5 stars. Ive personally owned this product for over 6 months, and have yet to notice any functionality or sound quality issues. If you enjoy taking long walks outdoors, studying with pleasant background music, or just want to jam out with your friends, the Bose SoundLink Mini II is excellent for these types of situations. Without a doubt, this is the first product I would recommend to anyone who is in the market for a portable Bluetooth speaker.
