Bose's smallest portable Bluetooth speaker SoundLink Micro goes on sale in the US


Bose introduced its smallest portable Bluetooth speaker earlier this month, the SoundLink Micro. If you haven't pre-ordered one yet, you will now be able to purchase one for just $109.95.

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.

Moreover, the speaker has been built with mobility in mind, so you'll be able to strap to just about anything like a bike, backpack, or cooler. Bose says that SoundLink Micro features a custom-designed transducer and silicone passive radiators, which allows it to achieve a quality of sound that's better than any speaker of its size.

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.

"Last but not least, in order to connect it to your Android or iOS smartphone, you'll have to download the Bose Connect app via Google Play or App Store." Isn't the convenience of a Bluetooth speaker its ability to connect to any device seamlessly. Who do I "need" the app. Imagine trying to connect a friends device or something.

I don't think this is entirely true. You probably need the app to access some extra functions not available via Bluetooth, but for music and speaker phone you could probably skip the application.
