Bose squeezes its award-winning audio technology into a sleeker, ultra-compact form factor that trumps most of the competition on build quality alone. The company engineered two custom high-powered transducers to achieve a dynamic soundstage capable of managing solid bass and mid-range levels with ease. It can remember six different devices through a one-time-only synchronization setup as well. Additional protective cases add some color to its plush look.
