If you are looking for a small portable bluetooth speaker that is tough, light and gives you great sound then consider purchasing the Bose SoundLink® Micro Bluetooth® speaker. Measuring just 9.5cms wide and deep, 3.8cms high, and weighing a mere 290 grams, the Micro is tiny until you turn it on and you hear it blasting out sounds like any of the bigger toys! With unmatched sound for its size, and tested beyond its IPX7 waterproof rating, the Micro lets you enjoy music, take and make calls, and access Siri, Spotify or your Google Assistant.
I had the opportunity to see this little speaker at the recent launch of #SpotifyxBose in Sydney, and yes, it does survive a drenching! Not that I would purposely spill water on this little speaker but it's good to know that if an accident happens your Micro will most likely come out ok.
The Mico is built to survive extreme heat; it was made and tested to withstand soapy water, chlorinated water, and salt water. In the rain or snow, dropped in the sink, pool, or ocean, the Micro will keep playing. The Bose Micro has a silicone exterior protecting the device from scratches, dents, cracks, hits, falls, dust, dirt and sand. What I really like about it is the strong strap on its flip-side making it easy to attach to bags, backpacks, bikes, coolers, and other gear.
The Micro is small in size but big on technology. A new custom transducer, miniature dual-passive radiators, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery were engineered together – as a micro- system. Cm-for-cm, the Micro delivers a different kind of mobile audio – up to 6 hours of surprisingly loud-and-clear audio and low bass – from an enclosure that fits entirely in the palm of your hand.
The Micro uses simple voice prompts for Bluetooth pairing, has an integrated speakerphone, and a multi-purpose button to take calls, make them, and access your VPA with one push – without grabbing your phone. When used with the Bose® Connect app, it can sync with other SoundLink speakers for Stereo Mode (left-right channel) or Party Mode (to play music simultaneously).
The SoundLink Micro is available in black, midnight blue and bright orange and retails for A$169.95 and NZ$199.95 at Bose retail stores and authorised Bose online retailers.
