Bose sound link mini, any recommendations?
I use a Minirigs speaker. It’s not bluetooth, it’s 3.5mm jack connect, but it makes a great sound and doesn’t drain your phone or tablet by having the bluetooth on. Last night I was at a party cooking a big paella for the guests and I had the Minirig playing a Spotify playlist from my tablet. I got loads of people saying what a great sound it made.Posted 3 years agoTurnerGuyMember
I normally think most Bose stuff is pretty poor, but the mini is actually pretty decent. Good with vocals and the bass is very tuneful and there is a lot of weight to the sound.
It needs a small amount of eq and I use aneq on android, which has 5 channels – so I cut the lowest bass one slightly and up the top two slightly for more clarity.
From a youtube comparison I think it probably sounds like a soundlink v3 then, but that is twice as heavy and a lot bigger, which is a consideration for traveling, especially if they will want it in your flight hand luggage in future.
I heard a soundlink v2 but wasn’t impressed by it.
Resale will also be better on it than the creative.Posted 3 years agosuperfliMember
Well impressed with my Cambridge audio minx go. I wanted something more powerful and with plenty of presence compared to my little vehu speaker. Brother in law has noise sound link, full size and that was very impressive. Had a look at a few reviews and the ca came out well plus loads cheaper than the Bose.Posted 3 years ago
The battery life is amazing. It’s first outing was in my mates van to the alps. 13 hrs playing time and it still was going strong! Not run it out yet, but was told when I bought it that it lasted for 16 hrs. Only weakness is blue tooth range is carp. 2m before it breaks up.FlaperonSubscriber
£35-£40 gets you a Nokia MD-12 speaker which is about 95% as good IMHO, owning both.
Funky colours, too.

I have just had a weekend at Bontrager 24/12 and the UE Boom was brilliant. Great volume and no concerns about battery life – it actually speaks to you and tells you the percentage remaining. It was great to have it on the table amongst all the other detritus of 24 hour racing and camping and not have to worry about spills etc.
It also fits nicely into an Alpkit padded cell (size 3 I think) and weighs a lot less than the Bose.
I really wanted the Bose and searched for reasons to buy one over the Boom but just couldn’t.
Oh, and you can also link them with another Boom for better stereo and more volume.
