      Typical Bose Sound!

      Not my first bose product but it is my first soundlink and it sounds way bigger than it is! Deep powerful bass and crisp highs... My only complaint would be th Not my first bose product but it is my first soundlink and it sounds way bigger than it is! Deep powerful bass and crisp highs... My only complaint would be that it can't be charged using USB.. It would be nice to not have to use the charging brick and 110 volts when I'm traveling in my truck or on my motorcycle. It is supposed to last 14 hrs on a charge, I haven't tested that yet. Love it! Should fit nicely into a small backpack or picnic basket:)

      SLIII vs SL mini.

      Having both I can make an informed review. Simply the SLIII is the better of the two but not necessarily the better choice. The mini has an amazing output and q Having both I can make an informed review. Simply the SLIII is the better of the two but not necessarily the better choice. The mini has an amazing output and quality of sound for such a small speaker. This is the speaker that you want if mobility is important to you. The SLIII is bigger and easily produces a level of sound to fill a medium to large room. It is however bigger and not so great as a mobile speaker. Having played various music genres on both. The mini has more bass than the III but not by much. The III does have a greater clarity and sounds a little more balanced. Unfortunately it does seem to lose the bass on some dance tracks. Both are pricey, there is £100 difference between the two. So my advice is if mobility is your focus then get the mini, if you want an amazing bluetooth home speaker then it's the III.

      Average sound quality

I have been ve I am trying to find a replacement for my Beats XL which is under recall. I don't have a great ear for sound, but I find bad sound very fatiguing. I have been very satisfied with the Beats XL and have inexpensive Bose soeakers wired to my computer. The Bose Bluetooth III speaker seems to miss the sound range I get from the Beats XL. It is not as full sounding and is occasionally a little tinny. It's being sent back. It may be fine for most pop music.

      Totally Disappointed

      I got my speaker in the mail today and was hotly anticipating getting it out the box!

Well, I sat down on deck, turned on some music through my iPhone, and knew in about 2 minutes that this speaker wasn't for me. I had read all the reviews raving about how high the volume went and how clear the sound was, and that there was even good bass response. Needless to say I was thoroughly disappointed in the output of this speaker. I felt it wasn't very loud at all, even when turned up to the highest level and distorted pretty quickly. I got it today and for $300 dollars, I'll be returning it tomorrow. It's just not worth keeping. Where's the Beats Pill XL? I knew I should have bought that when I saw it in Canada a few weeks ago. That speaker sounded great, in the store anyway.
