Bose introduced the SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker, its smallest, most rugged portable speaker yet. Measuring just 3.75 inches wide and deep, 1.5 inches high, and weighing a mere .64 pounds, the Micro is has IPX7 waterproof rating. It lets users enjoy music, take and make calls, and access Siri or Google Assistant.
A new custom transducer, miniature dual-passive radiators, and a rechargeable lithium-ion battery were engineered together – as a micro-system. The Micro delivers up to six hours of audio and low bass.
Waterproof from the inside out, it was made and tested to withstand soapy water, chlorinated water, and salt water. In the rain or snow, dropped in the sink, pool, or ocean, the Micro will keep playing. Its silicone exterior protects it from scratches, dents, cracks, hits, falls, dust, dirt and sand. And an equally durable strap on its flip-side attaches easily to bags, backpacks, bikes, coolers, and other gear.
The Microuses simple voice prompts for Bluetooth pairing, has an integrated speakerphone, and a multi-purpose button to take calls, make them, and access one’s VPA with one push. When used with the Bose Connect app, it can sync with other SoundLink speakers for Stereo Mode (left-right channel) or Party Mode (to play music simultaneously).
The new SoundLink Micro comes in black, midnight blue, and bright orange. It will be available beginning September 21.
