Amazing Sound from little Bose 500
Reviewed in India on 6 November 2018
In one word, Amazing. Planning to buy Bose speaker for a long time. Made multiple visit to Bose Experience stores to experience SoundTouch and Sounbars, but nothing compelled by ears. Ultimately found the right speaker for me. It is a smart speaker with Alexa. Which is integrated with my Amazon Music, Spotify, Saavan, TuneIn accounts. When I give command to Alexa even when speaker is playing loud music, it picks up well and play the right song from correct online source. Never thought music listening would be so easy. Of course it can play songs over Bluetooth from my mobile and with wired AUX connection. Over Bluetooth also its sounds amazing as on WiFi online streaming. Also, Alexa has all the functionality as Amazon Echo series has.
Quality of the sound is mind blowing. It actually gives wide and wall to wall sound for anything you play from that speaker. From Bose Music app you can also adjust Bass & Treble, which provides much richer sound effect. The small color display on the unit is also useful. Shows album artwork, which song it is playing and time as well when in stand by. 6 Presets are very useful to me. I have set different Internet Radio stations on those presets, so that in the morning I can turn on my favorite Internet radio station while having tea.
Personally I love this speaker. Not sure if everyone will like it or not. But for me it matches beyond my expectation. You may experience at Bose store before you buy. But My experience is much better at home than Bose store due to much crowd & noise at store.
Highly recommended product. I bought it is from Amazon India, as it was offering cashback on HDFC cards, Amazon pay credit and no cost EMI, whereas none were available in Bose store. Also, Amazon & Seller Appiro Retail were amazing, they delivered it within 14 hrs of ordering, just before Diwali.
