Before this year, the quality of Bluetooth Speakers was pretty pitiful. This year, there are speakers like the Bose SoundLink Mini Speaker, which reviewers absolutely adore. On Amazon, it gets an average of 4.8 out of 5 stars from 628 reviewers.
The Bose SoundLink Mini Speaker has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that delivers about 6 hours of playtime. The first impression you get when you take the SoundLink Mini out of the box is how substantial it feels. It weighs 1.5 pounds and has heft. When you place it on a table or on the charging cradle, it is stable and does not wobble. The enclosure is solid aluminum. It sounds incredible with wonderful bass response and clear/crisp articulate high end.
It’s available from Amazon for about $200.
