About the product
Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it has to sound that way. The SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II delivers full sound with dramatically deeper lows than you’d expect from a speaker that fits in the palm of your hand. And because it’s wireless and ultra-compact, it’s easy to take Bose sound anywhere. The built-in speakerphone lets you take calls out loud with clear sound. And voice prompts make Bluetooth pairing easy. Plays unplugged for hours and can be charged from most USB power sources.
The Altec Lansing iMW575 Life Jacket Bluetooth Wireless Speaker features great stereo sound with Voice Confirmation and an onboard microphone for clear, hands-free communication. This portable speaker includes two powerful 2.5 inch drivers with Altec DSP Audio Enhancement technology for optimum music playback and APT-X for CD-quality wireless audio--as well as a 3.5mm AUX-in cable for added device compatibility. The rechargeable Lithium-ion battery offers up to 16 hours of battery life on a full charge. The rubberized jacket has an IPX 67 Water/Dust/Shock-proof rating, durable enough to carry with you anywhere.
