Pros & Cons
The Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II is very compact and offers surprisingly clear and powerful sound. It can easily be connected wirelessly with Apple, Android, Blackberry device or even tablets and/or laptops for continuous on the go music enjoyment. The Bluetooth needs to be connected only once to any smart phone or laptop with any physical docks or wires. The speaker can keep up to six Bluetooth sources in memory. This lightweight speaker is easy to carry and offers 30-feet wireless range. These speakers also come with an integrated bi-fold cover protects the speaker during travel and unfolds into a stand for instant playing anywhere.
This Bluetooth device controls everything like playlists, streaming music station without any remote control. It features very easy controls with its own power and volume buttons on top of the unit. The speakers come with rechargeable lithium-ion battery that stays strong for up to eight hours, while continuing with other activities. The battery charge is indicated through color changing from green to yellow to red, and is fully charged within 2-3 hours. An optional car charger is also available for charging while travelling. These speakers come with Auxiliary input that allows playing other audio sources like MP3's and/or DVD/CDs, and the USB port ensure ongoing Bluetooth device compatibility. Additional covers are also available separately in leather or nylon materials to match an individual style and interest.
However, many users feel the speakers are expensive and sometimes the sound is muffled when played on high volume/frequencies.
Overall, the Bose Soundlink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II is awesome wireless speaker for its sound quality, ease of use and performance features.
