The speaker is very small, It can easily fit in a male pocket (it's a bit too heavy to carry in pocket though)
The sound: not good at all, I really want to like this for its size and price but even my phone speakers are better. I regret this purchase.
Does the job I need it to and the sound quality isn't to bad.. definitely not a replacement for my other blue tooth speaker, but it's twice as small, battery last a little longer and waterproof!

Quick start guide & warranty card
Unlike the Nano which was primarily made from aluminium-alloy, the Icon Mini in its rather pebble like shape, sports similar materials & construction to other more recent speakers in the revamped SoundCore lineup. Consisting of a soft rubberised feel main body and mesh metal front (not certain how long the branding will last though), the Icon Mini come in measuring at 95 x 76 x 32 mm with a weight of 208g, making the Icon Mini just over 50% larger but over double the weight of the Nano (54mm x 54mm x 28mm / 80g).
Along with the fresh design comes a fresh power on/off sound, which kinda reminds me of a water droplet motif, fitting as the speaker is now packing an IP67 rating (something which was always missing but wanted on the Nano), so your good against dust, dirt and full submersion in water (up to 1 meter). With more real estate on the body, the standard array of button controls from speakers in the SoundCore (or most BT speakers) lineup are present, making for easy definition and control away from your phone.
Advertised at Anker’s Power Conference in Japan as containing a 3w speaker (like the Nano), the Icon Mini sounds much louder & fuller with noticeably improved bass (likely due to either a passive radiator, restructured internals or improved driver)….in the hand you can feel quite a bit of pulse when bass driven tracks are in play. The improved bass though I found to be a bit of a negative as well, with some genres sounding a bit muddy especially at high to full volume. Those who like their podcasts though will find it a nice boost.
Arriving part charged at 70%, the claims of 8hrs use from a single 3hr charge seem accurate (depending on volume) with 1-2 hours usage out of the box only slicing off 15%.
Improved audio and fuller bass
IP67 rating (water & dust)
Wireless stereo capabilities like several in the SoundCore lineup
Microphone for calls or AI assistant use
Not So Good
Still rocking micro-USB charging
Score 4.5 out of 5
Now let’s face it, if your after a speaker this size and with an IP67 rating, it’s for fun…on the go…use. You’re not going to be expecting audiophile level stuff, just good tones, battery life and reasonable ruggedness…all of which the Icon Mini delivers on, often in spades. Inclusion of the auxiliary port is still a nice touch for those with non-BT devices, though the flap for this and the micro-USB charge port (yep) might involuntary cause a few choice words for those without fingernails…
I got this as a replacement for my Soundcore Mini 2. After a recent trip away, the can shape of the Mini 2 was slightly difficult to pack, and took up a bit much space in my rucksack.
This new Icon Mini is a different form factor as you can see from the photos. It's also waterproof, as you can see from the photos! Love seeing people's faces when you run a speaker under the tap!
Sound wise, I have compared it to the Mini 2 as this is the one closest to it in terms of size and sound. I will point out, I am no audiophile - I just know what I like.
It's not as bassy as the Mini 2, wasn't really expecting it to be, there's a physical size limitation here. I do find the Mini 2 a little tinny as well though - weird combination I know.
But back to the Icon Mini... The sound off this is lovely and 'warm' not tinny, and enough bass to make the desk vibrate. I've played a few different genres through it, from Dance to Heavy Rock - it performs well with all, as I said, it's a lovely warm sound, not mushy (told you I was no audiophile!).
As with all Anker/Soundcore products, battery life is going to be amazing - I've played it for several hours since I got it, haven't charged it yet - Battery life on the phone is showing it as 75% still!
All in all, it is another great little speaker from the Anker stable. The great thing for me is the form factor though, there is a great little strap that I can attach to my rucksack whilst out and about, and it's not going to fall out.
Update: Anker/Soundcore have this on sale now at £12.99 (31/08/2020), I’ve just ordered 3 as presents for friends. Get them whilst they’re at this amazing price point!!!
The speaker itself seems sturdy and has a good weight to it. Another reviewer got it right when they said it is like a deck of cards except a bit thicker. It can be tucked in a pocket but it would be a bit bulky. This thing is, however, perfect to throw in a backpack or tie to the outside of your bag.
You may also want to look at the full size Soundcore Icon to see if it has extra features you need.

The build quality feels great but my only gripe is that the black-on-black buttons along one side are difficult to see or feel out in dim light - I'm often pressing the wrong one. Battery life is just OK - you'll get enough charge for a few albums or movies on the go, but I've been caught short a few times when I forget to charge it up.
As well as bluetooth the device has a handy 3mm headphone jack which I use with my portable projector, but the device goes to sleep after a while while using it. It's not a huge issue to turn it back on, but an annoyance when watching a movie.
Given the price these issues aren't dealbreakers, it's one of the best small speakers I've used, and by far the best value for money.
