Bose Solo 5 Review


A decent, inexpensive speaker, but not the best budget option

Inexpensive, easy to use

Comparatively mediocre sound

The Bose Solo 5 is a decent soundbar at a fairly low price. However, there are some better low budget options available (namely the ), making this a poor choice for most users.

Bose Solo 5 review


Compact soundbar looks good, but fails to measure up in terms of performance

Compact size ; Easy to use ; Universal remote included ; Good clarity to dialogue

Lacks punch ; Narrow soundfield ; Not very dynamic ; Not a vast improvement on standard TV sound

Its small size will appeal to some, but even at this price, we want more from it in the performance stakes

Bose Solo 5 review: An ultra-compact soundbar


The Bose Solo 5 is a simple budget soundbar with a useful universal remote, but its sound quality is a little disappointing

Small size ; Remote

Price ; Sound quality ; No included wall-mount kit

So about this product. I had done some searching about this soundbar and there are mixed reviews some good and some bad. Now bare in mind this will not turn your living room into a cinema if you want that then get something else. This soundbar to me is...

Stopped working


Suddenly stopped working after 1,5 years. Died. Doesn't even turn on. Wasn't that good anyway. Just realised that I paid around 75% of the price for shiny “BOSE” sign. Don't bother.

Very impresisve for its size


Bought this for the bedroom TV not expecting too much due to its size ( I have a bigger older Bose in the lounge). But it surpassed expectations and is close to my existing one (that's what the advance of tech does in a few years I suppose). Like the...
