With the Soundlink Mini, Bose largely succeeds in their attempt to create a small portable speaker with good sound. While it may be small, Tech Guide says the Soundlink Mini has "excellent sound quality," and Laptop Magazine says it has the "best sound in its class and beyond loud for its size." And Bose has made sure you can take that sound anywhere, building the Soundlink Mini similar in size to the original Jambox, and 9to5Mac says you can "easily throw it in a bag" but "it's way heavier." Despite that weight difference, PC Advisor finds "it's still light enough" and "the extra weight really gives a premium feel." The Soundlink Mini manages to offer big sound in a small package that won't break the bank.
