A smart speaker with smart sound

The Bose Home Speaker 500 scores points in the department where other smart speakers, including the ones from Google and Amazon don't. It is smart but it also a mindful of its audio output. It is extremely loud and yet it manages to produce a balanced sound output - with clear vocals, a resonating bass effect and a clarity - even at extremely high volume levels. And of course it has Alexa.

Amazon Alexa has never sounded better

The Bose Home Speaker 500 is by far the best sounding Amazon Alexa speaker that you can find right now. The sound signature is typical Bose, and the crystal-clear detailing really takes the cake.

The Bose Home Speaker 500 is by far the best sounding Amazon Alexa speaker that you can find right now. The sound signature is typical Bose, and the crystal-clear detailing really takes the cake. Whether you splurge the cash on this totally depends on how much of a music are you, and whether Amazon’s Alexa is that important in the larger scheme of things. If the answers for both are affirmative, the Bose Home Speaker 500 hits the right notes.

Top-tier audio quality

Debuts are never easy, but the Bose Home Speaker 500 does an excellent job of meeting the company's high bar for quality. With the smarts of Alexa behind it, a strong design and eardrum-bursting audio quality, there's no question this immediately vaults into the premier tier of smart speakers. The price will surely be a sticking point for many – especially with comparable rivals like HomePod and the Sonos One available for cheaper – but there are very few other reasons to avoid this option.

Might be the best sounding Echo alternative yet

from Gizmodo

Until now, I would have argued that the Sonos One carries the crown of the best sound. The Bose Home Speaker is better, and it pains me to admit it because otherwise, it’s just not a great gadget.

In our testing it produced the crispest clarity and some of the most powerful bass, resulting in an expressive soundscape that hangs drama and emotion on every note. Add in all the functionality that comes with built-in Alexa capabilities, a convenient Bluetooth connection, and enough volume to power any party you'd like to throw, and you have a speaker with almost no downsides (apart from a hefty price tag)

Alexa for audio connoisseurs

from Pocket-lint

We've only listened to a couple of tracks on the Bose Home Speaker 500, but they were impressive. Certainly it will give you surprising volume for the size, so if you're looking for a quality single smart speaker arrangement, then it's certainly one to consider.

Pleasantly surprised at how loud and clear music is

from TrustedReviews

I was pleasantly surprised at how loud and clear music on the Home Speaker 500 was... the directional mics picking up voice commands over music cranked all the way to the max was also impressive.
