Wireless music streaming from mobile devices is an ever-bigger market, and high-end audio specialist Bose has decided to lay down a marker in the Soundlink Wireless Mobile Speaker.
It's an A2DP Bluetooth device, and works with Apple's iPhone and iPad and the army of Android kit out there, and as you'd imagine comes with Bose's usual levels of quality – and price.
Bose has had a presence around the mobile audio market for a while now with the likes of the iconic SoundDock, but the latest addition is of course wireless, and we're pleased to see Bose has resisted the temptation to succumb to Apple's AirPlay cash cow and has instead gone for the more widely used Bluetooth.
Otherwise the Soundlink Wireless Mobile Speaker has a fairly no-nonsense design, but comes with a novel leather or nylon casing that folds back and doubles as a stand.
The former will set you back £300, with the latter coming in £40 cheaper – as we've said, Bose gear doesn't tend to come cheap.
But our own experience is that you get sound quality to match, and based on past evidence Bose doesn't just take its traditional audio smarts and throw it at the mobile market, it actually gears its devices up for the different nature and requirements of mobile-based digital audio.
Besides, if you've got that kind of cash to throw about, good for you.
