Plays where you play

The SoundLink Mini speaker I is small and light enough to tuck into your bag. It weighs just 0.68 kg. Its low profile lets you place it almost anywhere and provides a low centre of gravity, which makes it nearly impossible to tip over.

The rechargeable lithium-ion battery delivers up to seven hours of play time. And at home, you can listen even longer—the charging cradle lets you listen while it charges. An empty battery usually fully recharges in three hours.

Bluetooth connectivity

The speaker has a range of about 9 metres, so you can enjoy the sound you want without wires. It pairs easily with your smartphone, iPad or other Bluetooth device. And it remembers the six most recent devices you’ve used, so reconnecting is even simpler.

You don’t have to sacrifice performance for portability. Proprietary technologies and an innovative driver configuration combine to deliver full-range sound—including deep lows—in an ultra-compact package. It lets you take your music to places it’s never been before.

Easy operation, elegant design

What kind of audio sources can I use with the SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker I?

The speaker is designed specifically for use with today’s most popular Bluetooth devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. In addition, it includes an auxiliary input for a wired connection to an MP3 or similar portable player.

How do I control the speaker?

Power and volume controls are located on the speaker itself. Otherwise, use your smartphone or other paired device to select a playlist, streaming audio source etc. No remote control necessary.

What is the wireless range of the SoundLink Mini speaker I?

On average, the speaker will work within 9 metres of your paired Bluetooth device. Walls and building materials can affect reception at times.

Can I stream music (Pandora®, Rhapsody® etc.) from my computer to the SoundLink Mini speaker I?

Yes, as long as your computer is enabled for Bluetooth and is within 9 metres of the speaker.

If I’m using my smartphone with the SoundLink Mini speaker I, will phone calls play through the speaker?

No. A phone call interrupts your audio source and plays through your phone only. When the call ends, your music automatically resumes through the SoundLink Mini speaker I.

How do I check battery life? What is the playing/charging time of the battery?

When the speaker is turned on, the battery indicator lights up for three seconds and then turns off to conserve power. To check the charge, press and hold the power button and the indicator light will come on. The light is green when the battery has 70% or more charge. Yellow indicates a charge of 20% to 70%. And red means less than 20% battery life.

Battery performance varies depending on the content and the volume at which it’s played. In typical usage, a fully charged battery gives you up to seven hours. The battery will fully charge in three hours.

Can I use the SoundLink Mini speaker I as part of my home wireless network?

No, the SoundLink Mini speaker I works only with the Bluetooth wireless protocol. If you’re looking for speakers that connect via Wi-Fi®, have a look at our Smart home speakers.

Can the SoundLink Mini speaker I be used to provide audio for video, such as for watching a movie on a tablet?

Yes. However, the quality of the experience—specifically, synchronisation between audio and video—can be influenced by the Bluetooth implementation on the viewing device. You will get the best performance by keeping the SoundLink Mini speaker and the device in close proximity, which minimises wireless interference. Use of Wi-Fi® in the area may also affect performance.
