  • from Toronto, ON

Great sound, until after a year of ownership

I got this speaker a couple years ago. Its been good, sounds good, but the bluetooth has become unreliable over time, it likes to disconnect from devices and the speaker has all the lights flash on it when this happens. Usually the best way to keep this thing reliable is just leave it plugged in. Which kind of defeats a feature of the speaker, being portable and all. Other than that it still sounds good, but sometimes I get some popping sounds which can be annoying. Overall I'd say for the price of the speaker and how its held up, I'd reconsider buying it again.

  • from Vancouver, BC

Solid speaker

Great for the boat/hanging out.

  • from Toronto, ON

Exactly what we wanted!

Bought this speaker for my fiancé for his birthday and he uses it all the time! Great sound for a small speaker and love that it has a charging dock but is still portable!

  • from Montréal, QC

Great sound for a little speaker

Very clear sound with good base. This is the second one I've purchased, got the first one for work.

  • from Niagara Falls, ON

Great but mighty

Love it. Perfect for a small room. Lots of base and treble. Amazing for such a small device. Holds charge well. Very portable. There are better speakers by Bose but you will pay more too. This is an excellent compromise. Highly recommended.

  • from Perth, ON

Nice little speaker

After reading previous reviews I was a little worried about this speaker but it was exactly what I wanted and expected from a Bose speaker. No problems pairing the speaker with any of my apple devices. So easy that I didn't even need to read the instructions. (Perfect for a man) Sound quality is very good. Bass sounds better when speaker is on the charging base near a wall but also good when in the center of a room 25 feet from device. At the price a good value if sound quality is important to you.

  • from Barrie, ON

Premium sound for audiophiles

Superb sound quality unmatched by other Bluetooth speakers. Although the price may be higher than what people are willing to pay, it definitely comes down to "you get what you pay for" with these sorts of technology. Bose gets it right - the highs, mids, and lows are all crisp and volume is great for use in or outdoors. Set-up couldn't be easier and the battery lasts exceptionally long (I've gotten the 10 hours advertised). Makes for a great gift for a music lover and anyone who has limited space but wants a superb sound.

  • from Burnaby, BC

Great buy

Just bought this item last black Friday sale. The design is really cool the voice message is a plus. I watch Netflix on my iPad and connecting with my Bose Soundlink Mini 2. The audio is dope considering the size of this device. The bass is intact even I put in the higher volume. This is a great buy for me and I strongly recommend this to others.

  • from Toronto, ON

Great sound, too quiet for my liking.

I read lots of reviews thinking this would be a great loud speaker for me to use, but its slightly quiet for my liking. It is a great compact speaker and very portable. I ended up just returning it for the Soundlink 3 which is bigger and louder

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Great speaker, but its too quiet

I bought this blue tooth speaker a year ago and have been meaning to review it previously, but... the sound QUALITY is superb. Highs and lows are perfectly balanced, the connectivity is terrific: it connects easily and has never dropped the link. It's what you'd expect of a Bose device. Except when you use it outdoors! You can't hear it. I have the volume cranked on it and on my Galaxy 6 phone.. and I'd rate the volume at about a 4 out of 10. Indoors its great.... but outside is where I wanted to use this.... around the yard, in the hot tub, in the garage, on the deck with people over...... It ends up not being any louder than my phone is all by itself. So, depending on how you want to use this, it may or may not suit your needs. Just a heads up. Nothing wrong with it whatsoever....... if you're inside.

From an audiophile...

In my car, I have about 600 watts of crystal clear music. In my home, I have spent considerable money on my theatre system. I am not dedicated to any one particular of genre. I listen to everything from BB King to Slipknot, to (odschool Dr.Dre). I must say: no "portable speaker" will ever give you the sound I'm used to. However, this little speaker is not to be skipped over. I purchased four different speakers, in order to give each a try. As soon as number 4 speaker began to play (#4 being the Soundlink Mini 2), it was immediately clear that none of the other speakers were of any competition. It is small. It is powerful. And most importantly (at least in my book) it is crystal clear - the way music producers designed their tunes to be. There are a few weakpoints that may prevent one from buying; no waterproofing, no dustproofing, and no advertised shock resistance. However, this thing is incredibly well built. The metal grills covering the front and back are sturdy as heck. The weight isn't anything that would worry about, but is substantial - but any 'good' speaker will weigh a fair bit. What made me pick this out of them all was the sound. The functions (of waterproofing, etc.) while neat, didn't seem overly useless. Many "waterproof" speakers cant be submerged, the ones that can are severely limited to the depth you can take them, and when they are wet, they sound horrible. The reason for buying a speaker is to hear sound (mind blowing, isn't it). Anyways, I'm done ranting, just take away that the Bose Soundlink Mini 2 really is an excellent speaker. While there is no waterproofing, no dustproofing, not drop resistance (though, I haven't tried yet, it more then makes up in the difference in sound quality.

  • from Edmonton, AB

  • from Kamloops, BC

  • from Paradise, NL

A safe purchase with very little drawbacks.

As many other reviews have said, this is one of the best sounding speakers in it's class (and that holds very true especially with it's small size). But with saying that I have three drawbacks with this item. Number one the sound or maybe the fact that it's not 360 degree sound. This means when the speaker is not pointing straight at your face you will notice a bit of lower sound quality. Number two is that many units new out of the box may come with a mark on the speaker grill similar in colour to the "BOSE" logo. As well as the top multi function buttons may become mushy with heavy use. Number three is not directly at the speaker but the optional Bose cases you can purchase are terribly, terribly hard to put on and remove. It will require not a bit but a lot of force and pressure just to apply it. Other than that I find those drawbacks being somewhat nit picky and compared to other speakers in it's class, all I can say is that this is a very safe buy that will last!

  • from Edmonton, AB

Perfect besides the lack of NFC.

This is an amazing speaker. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a small speaker with big sound. The best uses are in medium sized rooms or in close proximity to listeners out on a porch for example. The one thing this speaker lacks is NFC capability, if this was included it would be the best Bluetooth speak on the market.

  • from Saint John, NB

Very Good

Can't beat Bose for the quality of sound.

  • from Coquitlam, BC

Great speaker for size, but I did upgrade after

I got this as a gift from my husband as I wanted something for playing music around the house. I was worried about it's size as I want room filling sound but I was actually quite impressed with the sound this small thing can produce. Even the bass is ok. But i do want to feel like I am drowning in music and don't need the portable functions so I threw in the couple extra hundred and got a Soundtouch 20 which is AMAZING. But if you are looking for a portable high quality speaker with fantastic sound this would be great! If you want to use it as your main audio source in your house and want it real loud, spend a bit extra and upgrade. I must mention though, I would only take this as portable around the house, I would buy a cheap light speaker for camping/beach etc. this one is too heavy/fancy to do that with.

  • from Peterborough, ON

Exceeds expectatios

Considering its size , this unit out performs all others i tested in bass and sound quality

  • from St-Raymond

very good

best sound for a litle speaker

  • from Guelph, ON

If you buy it... you will love it

Before I bought this speaker... I tried many diffrent brand. However, this speaker has far better base and it is very loud. At peak you will have 50W while others will have around 20W. When you try this speaker, you will love it.

  • from Belleville, ON

Great little speaker

Clear beautiful sound. Great quality for the price

  • from Toronto

You Get What You Pay

I just purchased the soundlink 2 today. I started off with some orchestra music as a test and it passed with flying colours, the sound was very clear! When I tried a more up to beat song, it kept up well but it tends to wash out at high volume which kind of ruins the song. All-in-all, this would be great for an office listening to relaxing, calm music. Not recommended for people who like nice bass (it will kill the vibe quickly)??

  • from Surrey, BC

Worth it

It was money well spent.. The bass of these speakers is very well defined for such a small speaker, it also very handy when going out. I would definitely recommend this to my friends or anyone in need for some excellent speakers.

  • from Hamilton, ON


I have listened to every blue tooth speaker out there.By far the best sound for a small unit.would highly recommend this little unit. Well worth the money!!

  • from Toronto, ON


This little baby exceeded my expectations! Totally worth the money spent. It is incredible for small spaces, has a very clear sound, and good base, and the battery life is mind blowing. I highly recommend!

  • from Scarborough, ON

Very pleased. worth the price

I am very pleased with the mini 2. I was on the fence between the soundlink mini 2, sony srs-x55, and the jbl charge 2. I have read countless reviews online which compare the speakers and I couldnt make out a clear choice until I went to my local best buy store and I heard all of them in person. I was really surprised to hear the mini 2. It just sounded far better than the other choices I was considering and I was instantly blown away so I bought it right there. The speaker itself is compact and it feels sturdy and well made. The sound coming out of it feels like it comes from a bigger speaker. It has much richer bass than the x55 or the charge. It almost sounds like a 2.1 speaker system, almost.

  • from Burlington, ON

Completely changed the way I purchase speakers

I can't believe the acoustics that this little speaker produces. This is my first Bose experience and as far as blue tooth speakers go, I can't imagine anything better??? The bass is huge, it's loud for the size, the acoustics in a big room are remarkably clear. This little speaker is how an amazing speaker should sound. This is a fantastic speaker and has converted me to a Bose enthusiast!!!!

  • from Vancouver, BC

Amazing quality sound & portable speaker

Got this portable speaker so I can use it while riding my bike around the seawall and I love it! Sounds quality is great, battery life is more than expected. The only thing is it's a bit heavy for a "portable" speaker. I offered it to a few friends because really it was the perfect gift for this summer!

  • from Dundas, ON

SoundLink II

We already have 2 Bose Sound Docks and this little beast puts out just as much clean sound and volume as its big brother. I am so pleased with this unit I would recommend it to anyone. Small and portable and fairly light but very solid construction.

  • from Hamilton, ON

Great Sound and Great Value

I am happy with this purchase. I previously had a Bose sound dock that recently stopped working. On the one hand, it does not have a dock to plug in my devices but on the other hand the blue tooth is an excellent replacement. It also as an aux input. The sound is surprising deep and rich for the size of the unit. However, due to its small capacity it is obviously limited in what it can provide. But for the price and its size, the quality is excellent. I do recommend.

  • from Vancouver, BC

totally worth it clear sound great battery life great portability excellent product

  • from Toronto, ON

Overall great little speaker, worth every penny. Battery last long and charges really quick, very loud clear sound. just a great speaker. Would buy again.

  • from Victoria, BC

I love this thing! Excellent sound quality and great battery life. The only feature I'd like to see is the ability to charge my phone off of it...but it not a show-stopper.

  • from Scarborough shoal
