To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was in the look out for a portable bluetooth speaker for few weeks and was initially keen on JBL or Sony brands. Later I started looking at Bose as well. Sony got ruled out because of poor sound quality. JBL's sound quality is not bad but what helped to make my decision was Amazon's fantastic pricing for Bose plus free delivery. I am really happy with the prompt delivery and the Bose meets my expectations. Very happy customer.
Ive been a Bose fan from home entertainment, soundbars, headphones down to portable speakers. The only reason I was 50/50 with the Soundlink Micro before is due to its price but when Amazon AU had it for $85, I bought it right away and never had any regrets with my purchase. Sound quality is top notch as expected for a Bose product. Battery life was great and actually exceeds expectations. I had it with me during our 3D2N hike and playing for more than 15h of music at no more than 50% volume and still had some juice left after the trip.
The speaker was super easy to set up. I got it connected and working in less than a minute. The sound quality is impressive. It sounds very well rounded, not particularly heavy on the bass so if that's what you're looking for you might be disappointed.
Great sound for the size, love the strap, ended up using this speaker everywhere. The only flaw is the microphone, the other side dont hear very well. This speaker is great for music, not as a hands free set.
For a small speaker the Bose really can pump out a reasonably big sound. The bass is not very strong but comparing with its peers it’s still beats them. As a travelling speaker it is an excellent companion.
