The Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II comes with a built-in speakerphone which allows you to take calls out loud by pressing a button on the top of the speaker. When you’re done talking, music resumes automatically.
The SoundLink Mini speaker II comes with an improved rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts up to 10 hours. It now charges with most USB power sources and includes a charging cradle.
You can connect two Bluetooth devices at a time, letting you play music or any content from your phone and tablet. For example, while playing music from your tablet, you could take a speaker phone call from your phone.
New voice prompts streamline the process of connecting to Bluetooth devices. It walks you through the simple steps to connect to a mobile device, and identifies your devices by name using text-to-speech.
The Bose SoundLink Mini speaker II stores the eight most recently used Bluetooth devices in memory, eliminating the need to pair again.
The speaker features proprietary dual-opposing passive radiators combined with two custom-designed, high-efficiency transducers. Bose digital signal processing optimizes the audio output for balanced sound at any listening level.
The SoundLink Mini speaker II is Bose’s smallest Bluetooth speaker. Keeping the compact footprint and size of the original, it measures 2.0”H x 7.1”W x 2.3”D and weighs 1.5 pounds.
The speaker has an anodized aluminum housing that resists scratches and fingerprints, and includes an updated beveled accent and a micro-perforated steel grill.
The SoundLink® Mini speaker II comes in two colors: Carbon and Pearl. Separately sold soft covers come in Deep Red, Energy Green, Navy Blue, Charcoal Black, and Gray.
