Unbelievable Sound Quality,
This review is from: Bose ® SoundLink ® Mini Bluetooth Speaker - Silver (Discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
The sound quality from this little speaker is like nothing you have ever heard before. Hearing really is believing, but be warned when you do hear this thing you WILL want one.
I bought mine over 3 months ago after a chance encounter with one in an Apple premium re-seller, I was actually killing time whilst shopping with my wife and thought I would have a listen to this little speaker. The shop was empty and the assistant suggested I give this some volume, then he turned it up further. I played Rock, Classical, Blues and even some bass heavy Dance and it was crystal clear with no distortion. I left the shop finished shopping with my wife and actually went back and bought the speaker - IT WAS THAT GOOD!
I am not a person that buys products on a whim, I usually spend a lot of time reading reviews and looking for the best price around - but not that day, I simply could not imagine going home without one.
It is quite a hefty solid weight, Reassuringly heavy in fact. Connects to my iphone instantly and is indispensible for my mac book when watching a movie - though I would recommend investing in a male to male phono cable as you do get sound lag with videos otherwise, this is a Bluetooth limitation rather than a Bose quality issue (you are even advised to do this in the accompanying Bose documentation).
The build quality is what you would expect from Bose - and for those of you that do not have experience of this (and this is my first Bose device) just think of the gorgeous unibody Mac Book Pro and you are only halfway there. Battery life is impressive, you can realistically expect 5 hours at high volume - more than enough.
Please go and listen to one, but as I say take some money with you because hearing really is believing. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
