In regards to the quality and build of the Soundlink Mini II, it is built with an aluminium outer case, so it will be able to withstand a lot of abuse. It is also equipped with a built in mic so you can take your calls using the speaker. Another improvement that Bose has made is the play time of 10 hours compared to 7 hours from the previous model.
Just like the previous model, included with the Bose SoundLink Mini II package is a charging cradle to make charging very easy. If you don’t want to take the cradle with you, there is also another charging input port on the speaker itself.
You can even link with a smart speaker like the Echo Dot and make the sound even louder.
The Bose SoundLink Mini II can link to two devices at the same time, that means that you can alternate between two devices to stream music from. It can also remember up to 8 devices, so you don’t have to pair them each time. So overall, as an all around, Bluetooth speaker for travel, cottage or for everyday use, I recommend Bose SoundLink Mini II.
