Design Case Study: Bose SoundLink Speaker I

While it is the older version of the Bose SoundLink Portable Speaker that I am analyzing, I must say that this tiny speaker really holds its own.

The sound quality, portability, and battery life is all there. The design aspect that I would like to focus on today are the side grips for the speaker.

I must say that whoever came up with the side grips for the design of this speaker is a genius. Not only does it make the speaker look aesthetically better, but it is easier to grip and so people will drop it less.

There are many portable speakers out there that do not have this feature, due to varying reasons. But this is what makes the Bose SoundLink Portable Speaker stand out from the rest.
