Bose knows sound. I knows Bose knows sound because I have their QuietComfort 20 nose cancelling earbuds, and they are the best thing that ever happened to me on a bus, me on an airplane, and me in the company of children. And sometimes their parents. So I have no doubt the Bose SoundLink Micro, a portable waterproof speaker new for 2017, is just the latest music blaster made to prove how much Bose knows.
Next I'd like to see if Bose knows baseball and football. As in, can they do something about the horrible PA systems installed in my teams' stadiums?
The Bose SoundLink Micro is a portable wireless speaker ready to play loud and clear clipped to a backpack, mounted to some handlebars, or just set down on a nearby rock. It has an IPX7 waterproof rating and exterior rugged enough to resist dents, cracks, and scratches from jostling and the occasional drop.
Paired with Bluetooth the speaker can pump for up to 6 hours per charge. It also has a built-in speakerphone, plus a multi-function button that gives you access to Siri, Google Assistant, or the Amazon Echo Dot.
Speaker dimensions are 3.87" tall x 3.87" wide x 1.37" deep. The Bose SoundLink Micro comes in Black, Midnight Blue, and Bright Orange. At printing, it was still shipping in time for holiday gift-giving.
