The SoundLink Mini is Bose's smallest and portable speaker. It only weights 1.5 pounds and features Bluetooth pairing, input source (aux), a power jack and 3.5-mm line input which is located on the right side. The SoundLink battery life lasts 7 hours of playback from its 7.4V, 2330mAh, 17Wh, Li-ion battery that Bose boasts. Last but not least, a charging dock for iPhone is included, along with a micro USB port.

The Bose SoundLink Mini put a smile on our faces when we heard the lashings of deep, rich bass coming out of such a tiny wireless speaker. Compact speakers of this kind and price don't tend to dig deep into the lower frequencies. Too often we've heard...

Being that the Soundlink Mini uses Bluetooth, it was easy to pair it with just about any device. Along with that, the six buttons on top were very simple to use and navigate. Using a Galaxy S3, original Nexus 7, and an iPad connecting was easy and fast...
