Bluetooth speakers receive audio wirelessly when paired with an audio device that is capable of pairing with Bluetooth. Basically you receive a digital audio from the Bluetooth stream, then convert it to analog audio, then amplify the audio, and finally convert it to sound. One Bluetooth speaker device we are tackling today is Bose’s Soundlink Mini II Special Edition. Pairing Bluetooth-enabled devices is an easy process, however there are cases where Bluetooth suddenly disconnects from paired devices. Here, we will talk about the Bose Soundlink Mini II special edition and troubleshooting methods to fix Soundlink Mini II Bluetooth disconnections from the paired device.
Fix Bose Soundlink Mini II Bluetooth disconnects from paired device
There are several factors that can cause the Soundlink Mini to suddenly disconnect from the paired Bluetooth device, such as the distance from the paired device, bugs in the Bluetooth device software, and a complete list of previously connected Bluetooth devices.
Since we will be talking about the special edition Bose Soundlink Mini II, here are some highlights of its specifications:
- Dimension:1 “high x 7.1” wide x 2.3 “deep
- Weight: 1.5 lbs
- Input: 3.5mm auxiliary
- Output: USB-C
- Wireless range: 30 feet or 9 meters
- Battery life: 12 hours
If the Bluetooth connection between the Soundlink Mini II and the Bluetooth-enabled device suddenly disconnects, try the following methods below:
Method 1: make sure the devices are within wireless range
Since the ideal Bluetooth range between two devices is 33 feet, make sure both devices are within that range. If at any time the devices are more than 33 feet or 9 meters from each other, it may be the reason why the wireless transmission suddenly disconnects. There are also obstacles that can reduce wireless range, such as nearby walls, doors, or other devices.

Make sure to keep the Bluetooth device closer to the product. Once the two devices are very close to each other, check to see if the problem will be resolved.
Method 2: Clear Paired Bluetooth Device Lists from Bluetooth Settings
The Bluetooth device can remember devices that it was previously paired or connected with, and most of the time, it automatically reconnects to them. If a previously paired device is nearby, it may automatically connect and therefore disconnect its Bluetooth speaker. To resolve this, make sure to clear the memory of previously paired devices or the pairing list from the smartphone’s Bluetooth settings, and then reconnect the Bluetooth speaker again.
Clearing the pairing list allows you to create a new memory and it will only reconnect to the products you want it to connect to. Try pairing the Bluetooth speaker with the Bluetooth device again.
Method 3: look for sources of conflict
Apart from mobile phones, other electronic devices can cause conflicts with the wireless connection where both are in close proximity and use the same power circuit. Make sure to unplug nearby electronic devices and then check if the problem will be solved.
Method 4: Connect to other Bluetooth devices
To check where the problem is caused by the Bluetooth device, try connecting the Bluetooth speaker to other Bluetooth devices. If with a different device and the problem persists, you may need to perform the following method below.
Method 5: Check the Bluetooth adapter from a Windows PC
If the speaker is connected to a Windows computer, try checking the Bluetooth adapter from the power management settings. To do this:
- Right-click on the Start or Windows button located in the lower left.
