  • Great sound
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - October 15, 2018

    As always with Bose you get a great sound. This speaker has such a smooth bass and really clear vocals. It is a very sturdy unit with a lot of weight which gives it a feel of quality. I have other Bose speakers with a similar sounds and are much smaller, but they are bluetooth only and don't have the screen (Which is a nice touch). My criticism would be that when in Wifi mode you can only adjust the volume if you're in the proprietary Bose app. However you can get around this by using the bluetooth connection. Overall I would recommend this speaker to someone who is wanting a table top speaker to provide good quality sound to a room.

  • Great usable features!
    Reviewed by Yessy m - November 7, 2018

    I enjoy using my Bose Home Speaker 500. It is a great addition to my home. It is easy to hook up to my wifi. Connecting it to my wifi network makes it easier to use the Alexa built in feature. Alexa is really popular in my home. I use Alexa to turn on and off devices as well as my television. With the amount of power this speaker has, I experience wall to wall sound. It listens to my voice and follows what I ask. I love that I can use my voice, touch or the app to control my speaker. I can also use Bluetooth instead of WiFi to connect it to my phone. I received this product complimentary to test in exchange for my honest opinion.

  • Lots of sound in a small package
    Reviewed by rlindsey98 - December 26, 2018

    I have just received this wonderful speaker and could not be happier. Wonderful sound, lots of music choices if you stream and the option to use your existing music with the AUX port. It is important that you are familiar with the Bose Music App for your smartphone as it controls all of the functions. One note, if you have issues with the set up delete the app and reinstall that will work wonders for you. Mine came out of the box without the display clock enabled so I had a challenging experience getting it started. It was one of the issues resolved with reinstalling the app. I love this speaker and it sounds fantastic as Bose speakers always do.

  • Not as good as expected
    Reviewed by SeaKyle - July 26, 2019

    All of my audio devices are Bose and have been a fan/customer for 15+ year. The Bose Home Speaker 500 doesn’t live up to the Bose name in my opinion. The device itself is good looking, setup was easy, sound is Bose quality hands down. My problem is with the Alexa integration. It doesn’t always hear me, understand my commands or respond. I have to repeat myself two or three times and I’ve even found myself yelling at it in front rider to get it to work. Integration with Spotify is also not great; the sound is dimmed for the first five to ten seconds at the start of the song. I’m hoping there is a software update that will fix all of this.

  • Sound's Spectacular
    Reviewed by PP9552099 - October 14, 2018

    Setting up was ever so simple. I connected the power to the speaker before downloading the app. As it was downloading I heard the speaker come to life with a short but dramatic theatre style sound blast. That was impressive, but I had to wait whilst an update was provided to the speaker. There was a buffering type sign in the app, going around and around and around. I wish it had a better indicator. Meanwhile the screen on the speaker simply said "Finish setup in the Bose music app". Once set up had concluded I said "Alexa, play Radio 2" and had the speaker playing via TuneIn within 30-35 minutes of taking the box from the UPS driver.
