Bose Home Speaker 500

 

The Bose Home Speaker 500 delivers wireless audio via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, along with Amazon Alexa voice assistance, but is somewhat overpriced for the sound quality it delivers.

Powerful audio performance with rich bass and clear highs. Streams via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Works with Alexa, and will eventually work with more voice assistants.

Expensive. Display looks a little dated. DSP thins bass out at top volumes. Some deep bass causes enclosure to rattle.

The Bose Home Speaker 500 sounds great for its size, and the bass rattling can be forgiven because it only happened on one track and wasn't actually distortion. Regardless of how rich and crisp the drivers can sound, however, the wide stereo experience...

Bose Home Speaker 500 review: Rethinking—and reshaping—smart speakers

 

Bose's first smart speaker supports Amazon Alexa today, and promises AirPlay 2 compatibility in 2019.

Expansive, honest sound from an agreeably compact package ; Onboard display and user-friendly physical controls ; Recognizes voice commands even in challenging conditions ; Very broad audio codec support

Companion app can't also control Bose's own SoundTouch speakers ; Touch controls on top of the speaker aren't backlit ; Some minor bugs remain to be squashed

As happens often with newly launched networked speakers, we’ve experienced a few performance quirks. Mostly connection issues (up through the cloud and back) that stall operations for a second and/or trigger an on-screen alert. Bugs they’ll squash.

Best Home Wireless Speakers of 2019

 

We bought and tested 6 of the best home wireless speakers of 2019 to find the optimal way to free your music from the confines of your phone or computer...

Excellent sound ; Great volume ; Many connection options ; Relatively compact ; Great sound ; Easy to connect/control multiple speakers ; Relatively inexpensive (street price) ; Can be moved from room to room

Expensive ; Multi-speaker management leaves a bit to be desired ; No simple Bluetooth connection ; Sound not quite as high-caliber as other models

All of the speakers we tested are capable of providing your home with music. However, some offer more features, greater expandability, and better overall sound than others. We hope our testing results have led you to the perfect speaker for your needs...

Bose Home Speaker 500 - first look Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Bose crams Alexa and Spotify into a compact, powerful and premium-sounding home speaker.

Alexa and Spotify support, AirPlay support in the pipeline ; Multiple mics mean Alexa will hear you loud and clear ; Colour screen displays Spotify album art

Won’t work with SoundTouch products ; Expensive compared to rival products

I was pleasantly surprised at how loud and clear music on the Home Speaker 500 was... the directional mics picking up voice commands over music cranked all the way to the max was also impressive.

Good

 

Got this speaker around a week or so ago! The sound from it is fantastic. It's is pretty easy to use and set up! Presets are a nice touch and if you don't want to connect your phone all the time they make life a little easier. The reason it hasn't got...
