Other speakers may have a battery that plays a little longer, but ours has one that plays a lot more of the bass you want to hear. All while still giving you up to 6 hours of music that’s deep, rich and full of life.
Don’t have your phone nearby? Don’t worry. Just press and hold the multi-function button to access the voice input for your phone’s Siri or your Google Assistant right from the speaker.
Make a connection. It’s easy. Voice prompts talk you through Bluetooth pairing. You can connect to two devices—and the speaker remembers the eight most recently connected devices.
Plenty of speakers look waterproof. But SoundLink Micro stands up to water from the inside out. That’s because we didn’t rely on the outer shell to keep water from getting in. Instead, we used materials like silicone to create a seal around the technology inside. It’s IPX7 rated. And exceeded.
It doesn’t really matter what you’re doing—hiking, biking, cooking dinner or hanging out. You need music. We designed a speaker that keeps pace with all of your adventures and delivers unmatched sound for its size. The SoundLink Micro speaker is small, but powerful. Super rugged and waterproof. It features a tear-resistant silicone strap—so you can take it along wherever you go. Because, when a speaker this small sounds this good, you’ll never want to leave it behind.
When it comes to waterproofing, we wanted to make a speaker that not only performs the first time you get it wet—but every time you get it wet. We used an IPX7 rating as a benchmark, then took it further. We rigorously tested our speaker for all kinds of situations. We built this one to survive a fall in the pool. Or in the ocean. There’s no need to panic if you drop it. Just pull it out and hit play.
Accidents happen. But that doesn’t mean you should be left with a broken speaker when they do. That’s why we chose silicone rubber for SoundLink Micro’s exterior. This high quality material allowed us to eliminate as many seams and gaps as possible (and it holds up to dents, scratches and cracks). It’s portable performance—for all the places you want to be.
The Bose Connect app gives you easy access to everything your product has to offer. Get tips, unlock product features and personalize your settings, so you can spend more time enjoying the music instead of setting it up.
You can also easily manage your speaker’s Bluetooth connections with one single swipe, so everyone can have a turn being the DJ. And when loud just isn’t loud enough, turn it up with Party Mode to play two wireless speakers simultaneously. Or switch to Stereo Mode for dedicated left and right playback giving you a full and dynamic surround sound experience.

The primary method to enable Party Mode—and Stereo Mode, too—is through the Bose Connect app. Follow instructions found in the app.
The SoundLink Micro speaker is waterproof and IPX7-rated. What does that mean for how I can use it?
For SoundLink Micro, we’ve stretched beyond the required testing parameters—in this case an IPX7-rated product—to ensure that your speaker will long outlast an accidental drop into water. The SoundLink Micro can be immersed in water up to 3.3 ft (1 m) deep, for up to 30 minutes. This means that you can use SoundLink Micro in more places and not worry if it gets wet.

How many devices can pair with the SoundLink Micro speaker at once?
The SoundLink Micro keeps track of the last eight devices to have paired and connected with it, dropping the least recently used when a new one is paired.

What happens when my phone is streaming music to the SoundLink Micro speaker and a call comes in?
When a call comes in, the audio on the SoundLink Micro will pause, and the call will ring through the speaker. If you wish to answer the call through the SoundLink Micro, simply press the multi-function button to answer the call. You can now talk into the speaker itself to conduct your phone call. Once you end your call, music playback will resume. Some details of this experience will vary depending on the implementation by the phone manufacturer.

The voice prompts serve two key purposes. First, they provide guidance during the Bluetooth pairing and connection process. Second, they identify the connected source devices by text to speech, simplifying usage with more than one source device.
Is it possible to disable voice prompts on the SoundLink Micro speaker?
Yes. Voice prompts can be disabled either in the Bose Connect app, or by simultaneously pressing the “+” (volume up) and “-” (volume down) buttons. We recommend leaving voice prompts enabled because of the additional functionality they provide.
Can the SoundLink Micro speaker be used to provide audio for video, such as watching a movie on a tablet?
Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronization between audio and video—may be compromised due to various signal processing technologies implemented in the speakers.
