The stylish Bose® Soundbar 500 is meant to be heard, not seen. Its thin profile fits discreetly under the TV screen, while its powerful acoustics fill the room with sound. And with Amazon Alexa built in, you can ask Alexa to play all your favorite music.
When the music’s playing loud, the Bose® Soundbar 500 will still hear you. Just behind the grille is a custom-designed eight-microphone array for superior voice pickup. But control doesn’t stop at just voice; use the Bose® Music app (available on iOS and Android) to manage your music, or the included remote. And with Alexa, music is just the beginning. You have access to everything from weather reports to news headlines, all without lifting a finger.* Future software updates will unlock new features.
Bluetooth & Wi-Fi
With both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatibility, you can wirelessly stream whatever you want, however you want. Play integrated Wi-fi music services like Spotify and Amazon Music (some services may require subscription), or your music library through Bluetooth or your home Wi-Fi. And multiple users can personalize their experience and control their content with the easy-to-use Bose® Music app.
ADAPTiQ audio room calibration optimises its acoustic performance for the unique characteristics of your room, giving you the best possible listening experience. And HDMI ARC connectivity keeps your system compatible with the most current technology. The included remote features six presets so you can enjoy your favorite music with a single push.
Sleek, Compact Design
Aesthetically pleasing design with matte top finish, wraparound metal grille and ultra-thin structure makes it look as good as it sounds.
Add the Bose® Bass Module 500 for deeper sound or add Bose® Surround Speakers for a fully immersive sound experience (Bass Module and Surround Speakers are sold separately). The Sound Bar 500 is designed to easily connect with a range of compatible Bose® smart speakers and soundbars so you can enjoy more music in more rooms.
*Alexa commands and controls may vary by country’s functional capabilities.
