Bose SoundLink II Mini Bluetooth Speaker

Best Bluetooth Speaker Overall

Why people love it
  • Amazing sound quality; solid, deep bass
  • Portable, lightweight, and durable
  • Excellent battery life and beautifully easy to charge

Iffy performance when connected via AUX cable and can't be paired with other speakers.


The Bose Soundlink Mini is a Bluetooth speaker that packs a punch into a tiny compact frame. Just like anything Bose, it's amazing how so much sound can be coming from such small speakers. The build quality for this is excellent with it's aluminum unibody enclosure. This speaker stands out for the ultra compact category of bluetooth speakers. It weighs a mere 1.5 lbs, yet feels solid to carry around. The unit comes with a desktop charging cradle but you can also plug the AC adapter directly into it.

Performance: What makes this the best of the best Bluetooth speakers on the market? Simple: its performance! It packs amazing quality sound into such a compact design. You get the sound quality and depth of a much larger speaker, and you'll be amazed by how loud this little speaker can go. For those who need heavy bass, it's definitely the speaker for your dubstep, reggaeton, or house music.

Battery life clocks in at around 10 hours, which is better than most of the other Bluetooth speakers around (average 6-8 hours). The aluminum casing can handle a good deal of wear and tear, and you'll find this speaker has a surprisingly long lifespan. Best of all, it can slip into any bag or purse, so you can take it with you anywhere you go.

Features: Want to make and receive calls while your phone is connected to the speaker? No problem! The built-in speakerphone makes it easy to take your call without disconnecting.

This speaker is easy to charge via USB and wall port, and you'll love how easy it is to pair the speaker with your Bluetooth devices. Not only is the setup quick and simple, but there's even voice prompts to help with troubleshooting. These features make for a very user-friendly experience every time!

Price: At $200, this is the priciest of the speakers on our list. However, when you consider the quality of sound, durability, and versatility, you can see it's a worthwhile investment.
