The Bose home speaker 500 fills any room with powerful sound. Inside the speaker, two custom drivers point in opposite directions to bounce sound off the walls, creating a soundstage wider than any other smart speaker. Built-in voice assistants, like Alexa and the Google Assistant, let you enjoy millions of songs, Internet radio stations, playlists, and more — hands free. All you have to do is say the words, and the music starts playing. When the musician’s playing loud, the Bose home speaker 500 will still hear you. Just under the top is a custom-designed eight-microphone array for superior voice pickup. But control doesn’t stop at just voice - Start and stop the music with the top controls, or manage it all from the Bose music app. When it comes to what you want to hear, there are plenty of options, too. With Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Apple airplay 2 compatibility, play your favorite music services, like Spotify, music, or Apple Music, or play anything from your phone or tablet. You can set up to six different presets for playlists, Internet radio stations, and more. And the color LCD display will show you what’s playing, like current song, station, playlist info, album art, and more.

Okay, setup was relatively easy. The sound, as we expect from Bose, is extraordinary. The box itself is very cool looking, looks good where ever you put it.
Once connected to Alexa, I connected it to Amazon Music which is where I get most of my music. I subscribe and also have about 8,000 songs stored there. If you have other music sources/stations, they're pretty easy to connect as well.
I had one major disappointment and one minor. I listen to a lot of books, and was sad when Alexa said she could not play Audible books. I hope that will be remedied in a future firmware update.
Minor disappointment: Like so many new Alexa compatible devices, the wake word is Alexa. No other choices. So, this is Bose great, Alexa familiar, but just waiting for Bose to make it better.
I almost gave it a 4, but the sound is just too good.
I returned this and bought an extra Echo and the Echo Sub instead. This setup improved sound quality in my opinion. Also everything works better with the straight Echo setup.
Tried following the instructions on Wi-Fi set up but Bose App does not correspond to the manual's instructions.
Been working this all day.
Two hours later I am still setting it up and having a very hard time getting a support video on "Group Speakers" to play. I finally got it to play only to discover when I clicked on the "Group Speakers" button as instructed to connect a speaker group, it was whited out and says "Grouping not Available"! That's what I bought this for! I only have one other Echo "Plus" Gen 2 speaker which from what I've read should work on a multi-room speaker setup. There is this notice on Amazon's page for this item..."Currently, stereo pairing, speaker groups, and multi-room music only support music playback over your wireless network, and do not support Bluetooth, 3.5mm AUX in, or TV/video connections." Aren't I trying to play this over my wireless network through Alexa? I'm confused. I was going to buy the Echo Sub system with 2 Echo+ for my mini-system but now I have no reason to believe that will work as a multi-room system either if this one doesn't. I'll continue to figure this out but if this just ends up being a $400.00 Echo like the product it will be going back. What a disappointment so far. As for sound that is the only reason it's getting a 3. It does not have the bass response I expected at all but the overall sound is as described by Bose as "The widest sound of any smart speaker." It has wonderful sound as a standalone but I really wanted it to act as a bit more of a subwoofer with all the talk about how wonderful the bass was.

Tenia que ser un muy buen equipo por lo que vale.
However, it is not great with Google Home if you use music services OTHER Spotify Premium, and you can't add it to a Home speaker group.
On the Bose speaker I can link my SiriusXM account and play anything. I can also link my Prime Music account and play anything.
But the main reason for creating a smart home is to control your devices with voice commands.
I can use the Bose speaker to voice control my lights and other smart devices but I cannot voice control the music serices.
If I tell google to play a station on Sirius it responds that the Bose speaker does not support Sirius (it does, see above).
Google Home does not allow you to set Amszon Prime music as a service (come on guys... play nice together). Normally I should be able the work around this with the command (play song X on Prime Music). But I get the "not supported on Bose" response (it does, again see above).
Because it doesn't have good integration with Google Home, I can't give it a better rating. Which is a shame because it sounds great and is easy to set up.
