Bose headphones and speakers are notorious for hardly ever going on sale. But right now Amazon has marked the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker II down to $179 with free shipping, which is a fresh 10% discount and one of the lowest overall prices we’ve seen.

I bought this speaker as a present for my dad’s birthday about 6-months ago and he still raves about it every time I see him. Don’t trust my dad’s ears? We were so impressed with the original SoundLink Mini that we went as far as calling it the best sounding Bluetooth speaker ever.  The second generation model built on that greatness by adding microUSB charging and improving battery life (now 10 hours). We’re not the only ones who love this speaker. More than 1,600 Amazon reviewers rate it 4.7 out of 5 stars.

It’s the small speaker with the big, big voice. 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 SoundLink Mini II has a built-in speakerphone, so you can take calls out loud with clear sound. And voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing, so connecting to your music is easy. The speaker’s lithium-ion battery provides up to 10 hours of unplugged playtime, and it can be conveniently charged from most USB power sources. At home, the included cradle keeps the speaker charged while serving as a home base, so it’s always ready to grab and go. The SoundLink Mini II was engineered to stand up to everyday use and be placed almost anywhere. It connects wirelessly to your Bluetooth enabled devices–up to two at a time. The SoundLink Mini II is available in Carbon or Pearl and can be customized with colored accessory covers to fit your unique style. Included: SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II; charging cradle; wall charger; cable.
