When it comes to portable speakers that you can transport in your pocket if you really want to, the Bose SoundLink Micro cannot be beaten. You can do a lot with this speaker, including clip it onto your backpack.
The speaker has a microphone built into it so that you can take speakerphone calls. No more will your speakerphone calls be muffled with the other person complaining that they can’t hear. That in alone of itself is worth the dollars. You can also clip the speaker on your clothes so you can go about your chores or other business while chatting. The person on the other end of the line will be none the wiser.
This speaker is said to be louder and clearer than the other speakers in its class. It has a lot of special features too that are worth the consideration. You could dunk this speaker into a glass of water and it would still work. A waterproof speaker is certainly a good investment. Think about those trips that you take where it suddenly starts raining. You can be sure that you won’t ruin your speaker on your trip outside.
Also, consider how great a bike ride with this speaker could be. You could keep the wildlife away if you go into a conserved Park. It’s more pleasant also to listen to music when you are hiking in remote areas than to constantly have to worry about the jingling of bear bells.
For those of you that like color, there are three options. You can choose between traditional black, dark blue, or orange. If you are the adventurous sort like me and you don’t like losing items, then I’d go for the orange. It sticks out a lot more.
The weight of this machine is 290 grams. It’s really not that light when you consider that that is 10 ounces. However, it’s just enough heft to be a quality piece of speaker.
Oh, and did I mention that the strap is actually rubber? This material protects against tearing while also giving some flexibility.
