Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II £249.00 via York Designer Outlet
I needed a new speaker for my bedroom and loft/lounge area and my dad recommended Bose. I looked online at Bose speakers. I wanted something I could easily take from one room to another (shower singing is compulsory) and I also wanted to be able to take it outside in the summer for BBQ's. I then visited York Designer Outlet and went to the Bose shop to look at their range. I found that this speaker was completely wireless when in use. It has a charging unit which I use every few weeks. The charge lasts for around 8 hours. The speaker comes with the leather case already around it which doubles as a stand for the speaker as shown in the second image. The cover then flips back to the front of the speaker to protect it (a leather sleek design).
The speaker connects to my iphone wirelessly and also has an aux port should I wish to play music from a non bluetooth device. I cannot recommend this speaker enough. I use it everyday without fail and the battery life is great. Its a beautiful piece of kit to look at due to its sleek design. My dad has a Bose surround system which produces excellent quality sound. I was sceptical as to whether the speaker would produce a high quality sound. I don't think I can compare it to any speaker that I have previously owned. The quality of sound is almost slightly unreal due to the size of the speaker. I find myself thinking 'how can such a quality sound come from such a small unit?'. For me the fact that I can connect my iphone once and then only ever have to press one button to turn on and off is brilliant. I know that some speakers you have to connect your phone each time. This speaker does everything for you automatically which makes it so simple to use. I also like how I can adjust the track and volume directly from my iphone, can it get any better?! If you are thinking of buying a speaker then I highly recommend the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II. I am aware that bose have just released and new version of this speaker. Maybe i'll upgrade in a few years but for now this product does an amazing job!
I am also planning a review of the QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones at a later date.
