Product description

Colour:Triple Black

The Bose Home Speaker 500 fills any room with powerful sound. Inside the speaker, two custom drivers point in opposite directions to bounce sound off the walls, creating a soundstage wider than any other smart speaker. Voice control from Alexa is built in, which gives you access to millions of songs, playlists, Internet radio stations, and more. All you have to do is say the words, and the music starts playing. When the music's playing loud, the Bose Home Speaker 500 will still hear you. Just under the top is a custom designed eight microphone array for superior voice pickup. But control doesn't stop at just voice, start and stop the music with the top controls, or manage it all from the Bose Music app. When it comes to what you want to hear, there are plenty of options, too. Access integrated music services like Spotify and Amazon Music at the touch of a button. You can set up to six different presets for playlists, Internet radio stations, and more. Or, connect over Bluetooth to play anything from your phone or tablet. And the color LCD display will show you what's playing, like current song, station, playlist info, album art, and more. Alexa integration doesn't stop at just audio benefits. You have access to things like weather reports and news headlines. So if you want to hear something, just ask. It also includes control of compatible smart home devices, all with the sound of your voice. The Bose Home Speaker 500 looks as good as it sounds, too, with a seamless, anodised aluminum body that gives the speaker a refined finish. It's part of a new Bose family of smart speakers and soundbars designed to grow with you, so you can enjoy more music in more rooms. This speaker is not compatible with SoundTouch speakers. Available in Triple Black or Lux Silver.


From the manufacturer

Bose Home Speaker 500

The widest sound of any smart speaker.

Experience wall-to-wall stereo sound from a single speaker. With built-in voice control from Alexa, you get songs, playlists, and more at the tip of your tongue. And you have the freedom to control the music your way — with your voice, with a tap on the top controls, or with the Bose Music app.

What sources can I play music from?

Use Alexa or the Bose Music app to play directly from music services over Wi-Fi, or use Bluetooth or the 3.5mm aux jack. Or stream to it with Spotify Connect or AirPlay 2 (coming soon) from an Apple device.

How can I control the music playing on the speaker?

You can start and control content on the Bose Home Speaker 500 with your voice, the buttons on the speaker, the Bose Music app, Spotify Connect (through the Spotify app), or AirPlay 2 (coming soon) from an Apple device.

What app should I use to set up and control the Bose Home Speaker 500?

The Bose Music app is used to set up and control the speaker. Once set up, you can also control the speaker using its buttons or your voice (with Alexa, where available). Some Alexa-related settings can be managed in the Alexa app.

What can I do with Alexa on the Bose Home Speaker 500?

It's not possible to provide a full list because Alexa is constantly evolving. But this speaker supports most Alexa features, such as music playback, control of smart home devices, setting timers and alarms, and more.

Is the Bose Home Speaker 500 compatible with other speakers?

The Bose Home Speaker 500 only works with other members of the Bose Smart Home Family for multi-room listening. You can also use Bose SimpleSync technology to pair it with a Bose SoundLink speaker for synchronized music playback.

Simple control. Hard to stop listening.

Take control of your listening experience with the Bose Music app. Browse all your music in one place, and seamlessly jump between stations, playlists, and services. Plus, it’s another simple way to control the Bose Home Speaker 500. You can easily set up your six presets, and multiple users can personalize their experience and content.

Meet the Bose family

The Bose Home Speaker 500 is part of a new family of smart speakers and soundbars. They all work together, so you can add another whenever you want to enjoy more music in more rooms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bose speaker - it is what it represents. Quality sound
By Rajat on 19 December 2019
Originally I was looking for 2 speaker system from either Bose or Sonos bit eventually upon researching and doing plays on the speakers realised that Bose 500 speaker has deep bass and at maximum volume, there is no distortion of sound.

The play from Bose 500 is crisp clear and clear. The model fro. Amazon came originally with only Alexa assistant but on setup, Bose updated it with Google assistant as well. I save 129 AUD over JB Hi Fi and Bose website on price during black friday.

I'm happy with the purchase and enjoys the music when I require.

If you are not looking for all the bar and dual speaker setups and need stereo sound speaker then this is the one for you. Bose 300 is also good but at maximum volume, there is a sound distortion. It could be due to the specific device as well as I'd not many choices for Bose 300 to try.

Would love to re-try Bose 300 speakers again and see if I can use it in my bedroom. Both speakers are good for decent size halls therefore bedrooms are not an issue for these speakers at all.
