To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
Bose home speaker 500 is easy to use and provides great sound, however I have had difficulty setting up the app associated with the product - not sure whether this is a local issue, but as yet remains unresolved. I believe the app would make it easier to use the other features of the product including the set up of each playlist favourite or the setting up of Alexa. However if using it via itunes and already set up play lists it works a treat.
Don't believe the reviews you read, try it for yourself, this product is awesome, small in size, very impressed with the sound, the only down side there is no remote, it is controlled by the app on your phone, you wont be disappointed.
The sound is excellent. It's like better than having a hifi stereo. The app was annoying because every time you want to do something you need to either talk to google or open the app. I found it easier to just connect to bluetooth. I highly recommend this speaker.
