Bose SoundLink Mini II is a small Bluetooth speaker. However it comes with great portability and flexibility to us and brings it anywhere. It is not definitely going to fit in our pocket, but for it is still good for home usage. The combination between solid sounds, small size, and stylish design will make you interested to see it deeper. You are not going to find it as the best one, but those great things would easily satisfy of your needs for hours of enjoyment on listening music. They also bring so many improvement in comparable with the previous model. The extra battery life and microphone function are only some of new features that they put it here. To make it easier for you to decide, here the full review about this audio gadget. So we hope you enjoy it.
Build And Connectivity
The Mini II is closely looks similar to its predecessor. The previous one only coming with single color, but now they put two other variants that look so much better. If you already have the Mini I, you probably notice that the design is appeared to be too classical. Almost too classical for young customers to look for, I guess they really need to improve their design to make it looks better. I don’t mind the original one, but the wider consumers will probably need a better enchantment on it.
Pairing the Bluetooth speaker with my device is fairly simple. You just need to turn it on and it would enter to the pairing mode. There is a helpful voice that helps you to know if the speaker is connected or not. It also asks for what kinds of language that it will be used. The voice is actually not really helpful if you are already familiar with this thing, but it will be so great feature for a new comer on this tech. On the front of its body, you will find volume button, power button, and Bluetooth pairing button. You could instantly know the battery percentage by pushing the Bluetooth button. One thing that I miss here is the flexibility on pausing and resuming the music because the playback control is so limited. The volume control is only usable for controlling the volume and holding it will not resulting anything
That’s everything is available for you to try. It also included a built in microphone for answering the call to make you stay with your smartphone. The playback control functionality is not a big deal since everything is working well. For the next section, we are going to talk about the battery life and sounds quality.

Battery Life And Sound Performance
First, I didn’t think that they would make battery improvement since the price is remaining the same, but they really improved the battery life by adding more than 2 hours longer with the previous one. Now the battery last for more than 10 hours with serious usage. The charging process is also easier now with the charging cradle is included in the box. They decided always to put the extra case on the box to prevent it from breaking if you split from your hands. The micro USB slot is back for charging it with USB cable as well.
The sounds qualities are improving on the lows, mids, and highs. That are the three things that I need to stress here. The bass is still boomy even on lows sounds. The bass is not impressive, but might be the best one for small speaker. The mids is a bit problem where there is small audible dip on it. You probably won’t notice it in comparable with the original one unless you are a critical listener. The highs are probably appearing to be similar with its competitor. It is great, but sometimes it missing of some details on the vocal. Even though there is still no hissing sounds and you don’t need to really worry about it.
|Improving on battery life and features.||The highs missing some details.|
|Great sounds power for its small size.||It is not allowing for stereo pairing.|
|Solid and durable build quality.||-|
The company really takes the original version and then defines it to be better. The improvement on battery life and audio performance are the sign that they are so serious on providing the best choice for smaller speaker. The design is the only thing that they need improve here. It still looks classical and might not appear for wider consumers. You could decide if this one is good or not for you by seeing of our review. At last, please make any comment if you have any question.
