5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding sound, 6 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Bose ® SoundLink ® Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II - Matte Finish/Dark Grey Nylon Cover (Electronics)
WHile its not always easy to tell from the photos this speaker unit isn't much bigger than a VHS cassette (remember them?) since we moved in a few years ago my wife and I have bemoaned the lack of a decent music system in our living room, we have an old separates system in the attic but its just too big and a variety of laptops etc that are OK but not fantastic. We have been using my old HDX9430EA laptop for the job as it has the best (and loudest) laptop I have ever heard. Thanks to a works bonus I was wandering around a certain high street computer store browsing when I saw this, after a cursory once over I saw it was set up to test so after a brief wrestle I had it connected to my mobile (there were about 25 discoverable bluetooth devices in there!) and tried some tunes through it, everything from Motorhead, metallica, tom petty and Jeff Waynes war of the worlds were blasted out accross the store, we even generated a small crowd. The sound in such a huge space was excellent and could be heard a few aisles away. So I bought it, got it home and paired it up with my Kindle Fire HD, brilliant sound but now it was in a living room the bass picked up another couple of notches, now it lives very unobtrusively in the TV cabinet, but the sound quality is amazing, you would have needed 6ft wooden speakers to generate this kind of bass a few years ago. THis small and compact device fiills the room and I haven't dared to see what its like on full, the bass has a real good kick to it but not enought ot overpower the rest of the sound, it has handled rock, metal, jazz and the aforementioned 'War of the Worlds' with ease and I have to say Richard Burtons voice has never sounded richer (its on par with the 500w pioneer system that lives in the attic).

The old saying is that you get what you pay for and am I glad I paid for this, on top of all that its portable, so while changing the brake pads on my motorcycle in the back yard I had this sat on top of the wheelie bin booming away happily. It is a great product, while I agree with others saying its a little bass heavy if you have any kind of graphic equaliser on the playing device then you can alter it easily.

Absolutely worth the money and recommended to anyone looking for a decent quality speaker let alone a portable one.
