Update: The Bose SoundLink Mini II is still kicking around after all these years. Give it a listen and it’s easy to see why – even in 2017, this is one of the best Bluetooth speakers on the planet with excellent sound and great build quality.
The Bose SoundLink Mini II is relatively ancient, having been released in June 2015. Fans of the original SoundLink Mini loved the upgraded features and audio of the second generation speaker. But how does the SoundLink Mini II fare against more modern competition?
From the spec sheet, you may be disappointed to find all the things the Bose SoundLink Mini Ii lacks. There’s no NFC for easy pairing, no multipoint Bluetooth for pairing to multiple devices simultaneously and it’s not water resistant. Its battery life is also rated for an average 10 hours where speakers like the JBL Charge 3 can last up to 20 hours and charges your phone in a pinch.
While the lack of features may turn off some buyers, it would be a mistake to write off the SoundLink Mini II entirely because it remains one of the best sounding wireless speakers on the market.
