It’s powerfully simple. Fill any room with wall-to-wall stereo sound, while Alexa puts millions of songs at the tip of your tongue.
Inside the Bose Home Speaker 500, two custom drivers point in opposite directions to bounce sound off the walls. The result? A wider soundstage than any other smart speaker, powerful enough to fill any room with an astonishing stereo performance.
Play. Pause. Shuffle. Or skip to your favourite song. You’ll have millions of playlists, albums and more at the tip of your tongue. With Alexa built in, you have access to things like weather reports and news headlines, too. So if you want to hear something, just ask. And future software updates will add new features.
Turning the music up at a party? It’s not a problem for our voice pickup technology. Just under the surface is a custom-designed eight-microphone array, so the speaker still hears you, even when it gets loud. You can turn off voice access whenever you want, too. Just tap the microphone off button to cut power to all microphones and continue to access the other features of the speaker.
Control doesn’t stop at just voice. You can tap the top controls to play, pause or skip tracks, or manage it all from the Bose Music app. And you can set up to six different presets for playlists, Internet radio stations and more, so your favourites are just a tap away.
When it comes to what you want to hear, you have so many options. Play your favourite music services, like Spotify or Amazon Music, over a home Wi-Fi network at the touch of a button. Or, use a Bluetooth connection to play anything from a phone or tablet. And Apple AirPlay 2 is coming in early 2019.
With the Bose Music app, you can easily browse through 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. Setting up presets with the app is easy, so the music you love is just one touch away. And multiple users can personalise their own experience and content.
