Little but loud
THERE is an easy choice to make when buying a Bluetooth speaker. The bigger it is, the better the sound. That rule will probably last forever, but Bose is hoping their new SoundLink Micro can be the best small speaker you can buy.
The tiny waterproof speaker is just 9.5cm wide and 3.8cm deep and weighs 290 grams. But Bose promises it will produce better sound “centimetre-for-centimetre” than any other speaker.
The speaker has been made to withstand not just drops in the pool or sink, but hot Australian summers and freezing American winters. The speaker features up to six hours of playback and can sync with other SoundLink speakers for stereo mode and party mode. Price $169.95
INSIDE Tested beyond IPX7 waterproofing. Weighs 290 grams. Comes in black, blue and orange.
