Overall and Final Verdict
So we set out to find out if the Bose SoundLink Mini II would be a good way to add more functionality and use to your mobile phone. In the end, I was pleasantly surprised with the portable speaker. Bose has a bit of a reputation for being overpriced and underperforming with some people so when I turned up my music on the SoundLink Mini II and it filled up the room I wasn’t really expecting that, especially given its size. The SoundLink Mini II sounded great and was about half the size of the last portable speaker I took a look at. Even better was the easy to use charging dock that it came with. Being able to keep it charged up and ready to go increased the chances of me grabbing it and taking with me when going out. With its current price being about $180 the SoundLink Mini II does run you more than the Sound Blaster Roar 2 that I took a look at before. With a $30 difference between the two, I don’t think it’s THAT much more, especially when you are getting the charging dock. But I do think that price is too expensive for most people. Even the trendier Beats by Dre Pill is down in the $150 range as well. So while I do think having the SoundLink Mini II out for your 4th of July weekend would be convenient, I have a feeling people looking for a portable speaker option are going to look past it at better-priced options.
