4Lovely sound but short-lived
By Amazon Customer
As with all Bose audio equipment, the sound quality of this device is superb, but its endurance--not so much. Within less that one month of use, it went dead. Totally. I contacted Bose, and they are sending a replacement, which I hope proves to be a lot more long lived. A word to the wise: save the box and everything that came with the speaker, along with your receipt.

4Excellent sound (for its size), but bring your own wall plug...
By Jeffrey A. White
I bought this to pair with an Echo Dot. Setup was very easy - almost effortless. Sound is much better than what the Dot, or even the full-sized Echo, can produce, and I am very pleased with its performance.
Deducted one star because it comes with a charging cable only - the wall plug is not included. I'm guessing their theory is that it will be charged by a computer and used on the go. And, yes, "everyone" has a wall plug anyway. But to package a product without all necessary accessories is just not right.

1Speaker has Glitches (one solution hold button 3 dots "multifunction" for 10+ seconds to pull Lazarus)
By Franky
Ok. I used this model Bose at a friends house. It was marvelous take it anywhere! Gets a little wet no problem!!! I decided I wanted one. So I did like most people put it on my cart wish list and one day I decided to go ahead and purchase it. First day sound ok, but every so often a crackling sound with the unit (huhhh) I don't remember this when I used it at my friends house. Leave it connect to the AC power all happy watch a movie with it all is well. Day three unit doesn't respond. Completely dead. Hold power button no use. Connect to AC Power nothing. Read Manual. Absolutely nothing... All lights are dead on a brand new UNIT!!! Arrrr... I explained the problem to Amazon and they were wonderful and shipped me another one. (Sent the faulty one back). Still had hope for Bose! The new Bose Soundlink arrives and again like a kid on Christmas.

Again the bloody unit goes completely dead. Press and hold power button ---> NOPE. Plug into AC outlet --> NOPE, AC USB plug ---- > NOPE.. Since I'm an engineer, I start going from the AC plug and work my way backwards testing every component. Everything works well. Just the unit decided to die (completely non-responsive to power button) NO LIGHTS when connected to power. So I figured maybe hardware is fine and it was the silly software people who messed it up.

I looked on Bose website all their solutions (For link go to Bose website, Amazon blocks all links) Completely not useful. Then you follow the white rabbit down into the hole where it says if it doesn't work when connected to power do this .... (hold multifunction for 10 + seconds) WTH! where is that on the manual?

After pressing the Lazarus (3 dots) button then it came back to live. Why would Bose make a multifunction button that "cuts" power to the whole unit? The power button should control power. There is something clearly missing from the user interface people. Great product bad user interface cost money. I thought that I had a lemon so I returned it which costs at least $3.99 (assumed) to amazon to return and then another $3.99 (assumed) to ship a new one plus sending the old one to the "magic land of returns." Assuming the price is about $20 total to return on a unit that costs $129 and probably ~$30 to fabricate that seems painful. It hurts: PROFIT. Then I read the plethora of other people complaining online about dead batteries and unresponsive units. Huhhhh.. Also thank you Amazon from protecting us one link at a time.

Hopefully the Lazarus button fixes most of the issues with this unit. Bose should consider making the power button into Lazarus button given that it is a software thing that can be fixed with a program.
