Product description

Product code: 82370503

The Bose Home Speaker 500 delivers wall-to-wall stereo sound from a single speaker. Built-in voice control from the Google Assistant and Alexa puts songs, playlists, and more at the tip of your tongue. Just choose your voice assistant and ask away. 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 (available on iOS and Android).

Bose sound
Inside the speaker, two custom drivers point in opposite directions to bounce sound off the walls, creating a spectacularly wide soundstage.

Voice control with the Google Assistant and Alexa
With voice control from the Google Assistant and Alexa built in, millions of songs, internet radio, playlists, and more are at your voice command. And when the music’s playing loud, it will still hear you. Just under the top is a custom-designed eight-microphone array for superior voice pickup. But control isn't just limited to the voice; tap the top controls to play, pause, or skip tracks, or manage it all from the Bose Music app.

A world of choice
It offers a huge choice of listening options. Access integrated Wi-Fi music services like Spotify and Amazon Music at the touch of a button (some services may require subscription). You can set up to six different presets for playlists, internet radio stations, and more. And with the Google Assistant and Alexa, music is just the beginning. You have access to things like weather reports and news headlines, so if you want to hear something, you can just ask.* Future software updates will add new features, and multiple users can personalise their experience and control their content with the easy-to-use Bose Music app.

Brilliant Bluetooth
Connect over Bluetooth to play anything from your phone or tablet. It's also designed to easily connect with a range of compatible Bose smart speakers and soundbars so you can enjoy more music in more rooms.

Apple Airplay 2 compatible
With Apple Airplay 2 you can control this speaker from any iOS device like your iPhone, iPad or Mac. Control it either from the Apple Home app, or directly from compatible streaming services like Apple Music, Spotify, and others.

Chromecast built-in
You can wirelessly stream music and podcasts with Chromecast built-in too.

Seamless design
Its seamless anodized aluminium body features a Colour LCD display to shows what’s playing, like current song, station, playlist info, album art, and more.

Bose SimpleSync
This Bose speaker has Bose SimpleSync built in. It allows you to connect it wirelessly with other compatible Bose products for seamless, linked up listening. So you can pair it with select Bose headphones when you need a more personal listening experience. Or pair it with compatible Bose Bluetooth speakers to hear expanded music in a different room. Or take a compatible Bose Bluetooth speaker into the garden and hear the same music inside and outside the house. It’s all easily set up within the Bose Music app. SimpleSync technology has a typical Bluetooth range of 30 feet.

*Voice assistant commands and controls may vary by country’s functional capabilities.
