My husband has to be the most difficult person to buy for at Christmas... ever! Unless you buy him socks he's really difficult to please because he buys most of the stuff he wants during the year, but this year he had his eye on one of these Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speakers.
Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speaker £169.00 Amazon
We've had iPod docks in the past and I had actually planned to buy him a dock for Christmas but then realised that we'd be upgrading our iPhones in the New Year and chances are he will go for the iPhone 5, which is a different connect to the iPhone 4S, so I was worried that it'd just get left on the shelf if it didn't have an adapter. That's where the Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth Speaker comes in, because as the title suggests, you connect via bluetooth rather than having to dock it.
I looked all over the place for one of these, but they were proving a very popular Christmas present because they were out of stock everywhere I went. I looked at other bluetooth speakers but they sounded a bit tinny and not anywhere as good quality as the Bose.
The speaker itself is stylish and compact with the controls on the top and a charging dock which comes with it. Of course, once it's charged you can play it anywhere but I wouldn't say that it's something you'd want to carry in your bag all the time because it is heavy, but the weight is definitely justified when you hear the sound quality to come from such a little device. This Bose speaker is a bit of a pocket rocket as far as volume is concerned... I was amazed at how loud it was. Think of hi-fi kind of loudness to the point where at it's loudest you struggle to hear someone talk in the same room. It has to be heard to be fully appreciated so if you're ever near a Bose store, go and have a listen.
I think the girl did good this year with his presents, normally they're not very exciting but it's safe to say Jason absolutely loves this. I'd like to thank Halifax who gave me an Amazon voucher to go towards buying something for someone special this Christmas as part of their 'Giving Extra' to someone special campaign.
