The BOSEbuild Speaker Cube is a build-it-yourself Bluetooth speaker that enables kids to explore the world of sound, music and speakers through app-driven, hands-on activities. The Speaker Cube takes kids on a journey that starts with a basic magnet and coil and ends with them building their very own durable and great-sounding Bluetooth speaker. BOSEbuild is a new product line from Bose Corporation - our first specifically for kids. We aim to inspire kids to discover how their world works by combining compelling consumer electronics with an exploration and build experience. The Speaker Cube is the first product from BOSEbuild and allows kids to discover how speakers work on their way to building a great sounding Bluetooth speaker. The product experience is guided by an iOS app that both provides animated instructions and drives different hands-on experiments. The final speaker sounds great and is so durable that we stand behind it with a limited two year warranty. It can be personalized with colored lights and custom covers so that kids really feel that it is their own.

My 5-stars are for the absolutely first-rate experience my son and I had building it. Downloading and connecting the initial app that guides you through the steps was straightforward and frictionless. The step-by-step experience teaching about electromagnets, vibrations, and sound waves was excellent and informative: just the right balance of learning and play, freedom and hand-holding.
And it was frustration-free, unlike some experiences with other iOT products. [Another aside: My son's drone required that we connect to the drone via wifi ... but then it told us to connect to a wireless network to download a software update ... but then it told us we weren't connected to the drone ... but when we reconnected to the drone, it said we still needed to download the update ... and then the update failed the first two times ... ugh. AWFUL out-of-the-box user experience.)
Back to the BOSEbuild Speaker Cube: I have one significant quibble: 85% of the step-by-step learning experience involves experimenting with an electromagnet and copper coil which aren't part of the final assembled speaker. Most of the learning is done with those parts and taping them to the cardboard box that the product was packed in. When it's time to build the actual speaker, those parts are set aside. Furthermore, speaker itself is mostly already assembled: You simply plug the face (cone) into the back control board, and then snap the other four sides together around it with clips.
I totally understand why Bose chose to do this in order to maintain the audio integrity of the final speaker, but it doesn't really feel like we built the speaker itself.
That said, the step-by-step learning experience was still so good, I forgive them. 5 stars.
The end result is a fun, nice sounding Bluetooth speaker.
I saved two of them in my cart before Christmas 2017 at a cost of 119.99. The price increased to 149.99 a couple of days later, and I purchased two kits without realizing the increased cost. Now it’s 99.00. Hey BOSE: what’s the deal with the “surge pricing” on this product?
In my opinion, while this is a very cool and innovative educational project, it isn’t worth the $149 (each!) I paid, or the $99 they’re charging today. My rating would be 5 stars, but I feel that the best educational value offered by this experience is: don’t pay $149 for a kit that’s worth *maybe* $75.
