Go wireless for the Fourth (and beyond) with Bose’s SoundLink Mini

Available next week, Bose’s latest wireless creation — the ultra-lightweight and compact SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker — is here just in time for your Fourth of July backyard shindig.

Small enough to hold with one hand, the speaker also features a low center of gravity, making it nearly impossible to tip over. And at 1.5 pounds, it’s even easier to jam on the go. We’d be skeptical of sound quality at such a small size, but given the Bose name, it seems unlikely to disappoint.

Though it has less of a range than the SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II, you can easily link the speaker to your Android or iOS device, tablet, or other Bluetooth-supported music player. It also includes a port to plug in directly to an MP3 player, and you can add a little color with a cover ($24.95) that comes in blue, green, or orange.

The price is on the higher end, coming in at $199.95 — but you’re also saving a hundo from the larger model. Pre-order it here to ship on July 1.
