Bose's smallest portable Bluetooth speaker SoundLink Micro goes on sale in the US
The main advantages of the SoundLink Micro are its small size, IPX7 rating, and battery life. Also, the device allows users to access the voice input for their phone's Siri or Google Assistant directly from the speaker.
The IPX7 rating confers the speaker the much needed waterproof trait. According to Bose, the SoundLink Micro is built with materials like silicone rubber to create a seal around the technology inside, something that not many speaker manufacturers managed to achieve.
Furthermore, the SoundLink Micro will also let users take calls through the speaker, while the small battery inside can provide up to 6 hours of music. The device features micro-USB port and has a wireless range of up to 30 ft (9 m).
Last but not least, in order to gain more control over the speaker from your Android or iOS smartphone, you'll have to download the Bose Connect app via Google Play or App Store. Using it will allow you to connect two SoundLink Micro speakers in Party Mode, or switch to Stereo Mode.
