    Bringing premium audio performance to mobile devices renowned for their tinny sounds, Bose has upped the music on the go ante with the SoundLink Wireless Mobile speaker, a Bluetooth enable travel speaker with the aesthetic and audio ability to act as your main home sound system.

    Beautifully crafted with a high-end finish, Bose’s classic styling and luxurious performance qualities are paired up once again to produce a device which will quickly convert those struggling with the idea of needing a truly portable speaker.

    Bose SoundLink: Design

    Stylish enough to take pride of place in any room of the house yet rugged enough to withstand the rigours of being on the move, Bose’s Wireless travel speaker features a compact yet powerful design with the aluminium and plastic construct filled with speaker hugging padding capable of withstanding a succession of hard knocks without showing the effects.

    Lining up at  13cm high by 24.4cm wide and just 4.8cm thick the SoundLink lands roughly the same size as a hardback book and barely any heavier with a 1.3kg heft making it easy to carry and comfortable to store in a backpack or satchel.

    Bose SoundLink Features

    Utilising the latest A2DP Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity protocol, the touted 10m range between device and speaker is managed with ease and excess to spare removing the need to worry about keeping your handset directly next to the speaker.

    The SoundLink’s interchangeable attached cover serves a number of purposes from the obvious protection abilities to acting as an inbuilt stand when the metal-lined front plate is folded back. In a move reminiscent of the Apple iPad 2 Smart Cover, when snapped shut, integrated magnets put the speaker into sleep mode, pausing the music and conserving battery.

    Bose SoundLink: Performance

    A claimed eight hour battery life from a single charge rings true with the SoundLink more than capable of providing impeccable audio via wireless or cabled means throughout the day and certainly long enough for most excursions away from a power adaptor.

    Maintaining Bose’s high standards the SoundLink offers unrivalled on-the-go audio with the difference between its performance and that of your smartphone or PMP not only noticeable but a difference that will leave you shocked that you ever let your handset’s audio abilities suffice.

    Bose SoundLink: Verdict

    Bose has once again shown it can lead the way in the audio market offering true audiophiles the chance to enjoy their music on the go without compromise. Easily one of the best portable audio products on the market the SoundLink will make most other docks or compact sound systems in your home redundant.
