Reg­u­lar Blue­tooth speak­ers are small and don’t pack enough power to shake a small room. But Bose’s Sound Link Wire­less Mo­bile Speaker ac­tu­ally makes you re­alise you don’t need big speak­ers to raise Cain.

In keep­ing with Bose’s de­sign fetish, this speaker has straight lines and fits into any am­bi­ence—modern or retro. It is so com­pact that you can just place it on a small sidetable and for­get about it. A spe­cial cover at the base be­comes both a pro­tec­tive wrap when not in use and a stand when the mu­sic is blar­ing out.

Since it em­ploys Blue­tooth for con­nec­tiv­ity, it comes with­out wires and, there­fore, can be put to use not only in a room, but also in a mov­ing car, at pic­nics or even dur­ing power cuts. It has in­built recharge­able bat­ter­ies that, once charged, can play mu­sic for a good four hours and more. And if you are more wor­ried abut the bat­tery dy­ing on you than lis­ten­ing to mu­sic, all you got to do is to use the aux­il­iary op­tion. There is an Aux In port at the back. Bose has man­aged to do with­out a dis­play by adding a nar­row panel with LED in­di­ca­tors that shows the charg­ing sta­tus and con­nec­tiv­ity via Blue­tooth and Aux. Also, the con­trols, in­clud­ing power on/off, Aux, Blue­tooth along with the mute and vol­ume con­trols, are placed on the top, with­out dis­turb­ing the rich look of the de­vice.

On the mu­sic front, the Soundlink Wire­less Mo­bile Speaker of­fers loud and clear au­dio. This comes from Bose’s pro­pri­etary tech­nol­ogy that has speak­ers with “dual op­pos­ing pas­sive ra­di­a­tors” for ro­bust sound with low notes. While play­ing mu­sic, the vol­ume can be con­trolled from the de­vice it­self. The claimed Blue­tooth range is up to 30 ft.
