Plays where you play

The SoundLink® Mini speaker II is small and light enough to tuck into your bag. It weighs in at just 0.68 kg. Its low profile lets you place it almost anywhere and provides a low centre of gravity that makes it nearly impossible to tip over.

The rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers up to 10 hours of playtime, and charges with most USB power sources. At home, you can listen indefinitely by keeping the unit on the charging cradle. The battery charges as you listen and the speaker is always ready to grab and go.

Bluetooth® connectivity

SoundLink® Mini II has a range of about 9 metres, so you can enjoy the sound you want without wires. Voice prompts talk you through pairing with your smartphone, iPad or other Bluetooth® device, making it easier than ever. And the speaker remembers the most recent eight devices you've used, so reconnecting is even simpler.

Big performance, small size

You might not expect sound this rich from a speaker this small, but the SoundLink® Mini speaker II is something new. You don't have to sacrifice performance for portability. Proprietary technologies and an innovative driver configuration combine to deliver full-range sound—including deep lows—in an ultra-compact package. It lets you take your music to places it's never been before.

Easy operation, elegant design

The SoundLink® Mini speaker II is designed for sleek simplicity. Its single-piece aluminium casing is both attractive and durable. The speaker features power and volume buttons—you control all other functions from your Bluetooth® device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just... Wow! I received this from my parents as a surprise Christmas present, having wanted one for years. The sound from this little device is absolutely phenomenal, it's surely something else. It's got a great flat sound, but you can hear everything so clearly. There is a huge kick to the bass, much more than you would expect considering the size of the device. It's an oomph that doesn't distort, even at the highest volumes. The treble isn't drowned out at all, I'm playing songs I've listened to to years and I'm hearing treble notes I swear I haven't heard before. It sounds as though you've a full line up of subwoofers, tweeters and whatever other speakers in there, somehow, with Bose's magic cramming it all in to something you can hold on your palm. The volume fills a room, easily, and at maximum it does borderline on a slightly uncomfortable loudness. This isn't a bad point of the product, I'm merely stating that it can get really loud, and like I said above, there is zero distortion. The only sound issue I've found is because the SoundLink Mini II fires your music from the front and the back, if you place it in certain areas, such as in a corner or against a wall, you can get a reverb effect from the rear speaker's output hitting your ears slightly after the front speakers. I wouldn't call this bad design, it's a speaker designed to be taken out and about, so having sound firing from the front and the back makes sure everyone in your group can enjoy the music, as not everyone will be in front of the device in every situation. I, however, have never taken it out of the house at the time of writing this review. I love the brushed aluminum finish, it adds a weight you would expect of a premium product and no doubt scores in the durability department (although I would cry if I damaged the gorgeous finish.) I would prefer a tactile button as opposed to the rubbery buttons Bose have chosen, but this is only because I worry that my fingernail will leave a lasting mark should I press the button with it. I'll find myself coming up with lists of songs I can go back to my SoundLink Mini II and play, just to hear what I've been missing on each track in the years before being blessed with my Bose. It is my first Bose product, and it's definitely made me want to buy everything they have on offer, perhaps new headphones next? The battery life is hard to call at the moment, I've charged it once, straight out of the box but whilst using it, all the way to 100%. I've had it on and off a dozen times and would put my total playtime so far as around 4-5 hours, but the speaker reports that it's battery is at 60%. Seems pretty on the mark of Bose's 10 hour battery life claims. I love that it's safe to use the device whilst it's charging too. I haven't yet used the hands-free feature, I actually only found out about that feature when coming to this page to write my review and to find out what the middle, "three-dots", button does on the device. As for Bluetooth connectivity, I have had zero problems connecting the two mobile phones I have used to the device. Both connected without a hitch, and the device remembers both of the phones. I upgraded my phone shortly after Christmas and so the Bose still remembers my old phone, and sometimes connects to it with a "Connected to Nexus 6P" shout. I just press the Bluetooth button and it instantly switches to my new phone, telling me "Connected to OnePlus 3T". I thought Bluetooth was a bad technology thanks to a pair of competitor brand bluetooth headphones I own, which struggles to remember a device, even though it only has memory for one device at a time. Always have to re-pair it, but not the Bose. It's fantastic. I don't know how many devices it can store, I'm guessing six, like it's bigger SoundLink III brother. It really is a fantastic little speaker, Bose have really hit the nail on the head with this one.

Accessories FAQs


What kind of audio sources can I use with the SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker II?

The speaker is designed specifically for use with today's most popular Bluetooth® devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. In addition, it includes an auxiliary input for a wired connection to an MP3 or similar portable player.

How do I control the speaker?

Power and volume controls are located on the speaker itself. Otherwise, use your smartphone or other paired device to select a playlist, streaming audio source, etc. No remote control necessary.

What is the wireless range of the SoundLink® Mini speaker II?

On average, the speaker will work within 9 metres of your paired Bluetooth® device. Walls and construction materials can affect reception at times.

Can I stream music (Spotify®, Deezer®, etc.) from my computer to the SoundLink® Mini speaker II?

Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth® and is within 9 metres of the speaker.

What happens when my phone is streaming music to the SoundLink® Mini speaker II and a call comes in?

When a call comes in, the music will pause, and the call will ring through the speaker. You can answer the call by pressing the multi-function button and talk into the speaker itself to conduct your phone call. When you end your call, music playback resumes.

How do I check battery life?

When the speaker is turned on, the battery indicator lights up for 10 seconds, then turns off to conserve power. To check the charge, press and hold the power button to turn the indicator light back on. Green = 70% or more charge; yellow = 20 – 70%; red = less than 20% battery life.

What is the playing/charging time of the battery?

Battery performance varies depending on the content and the volume at which it's played. In typical usage, a fully charged battery gives you up to 10 hours. The battery will fully charge in four hours using the included cradle or wall charger, possibly longer with some USB sources or while playing music.

What purpose do the voice prompts on the SoundLink® Mini Bluetooth® speaker II serve?

The voice prompts serve two key purposes. First, they provide guidance during the Bluetooth® pairing and connection process so the customer understands how it works. Second, they identify the connected source devices by name, simplifying usage with more than one source device.

Can I use the SoundLink® Mini speaker II as part of my home wireless network?

No, the SoundLink® Mini speaker II works only with the Bluetooth® wireless protocol.

Can the SoundLink® Mini speaker II be used to provide audio for video, such as for watching a film on a tablet?

Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—can be influenced by the Bluetooth® implementation on the viewing device. You will get the best performance by keeping the SoundLink® Mini speaker II and the device in close proximity, which minimises wireless interference. Use of Wi-Fi® in the area may also affect performance.
