Beware! There are problems in the setup of the Bose Home Speaker 300. It may be better to wait or look for other options.
First impressions with this speaker is it is well designed. Small but heavy. Very well constructed. I have a much older Bose soundlink mini Bluetooth speaker that is still running strong after many years. I have confidence in the brand and the way the devices are made. This one is certainly bigger than the soundlink mini and also will need to remain plugged in. But where you lose in portability you gain massively in audio quality. This speaker has a fantastic range of audio. The bass is strong and deep even without being turned up. I actually prefer the bass level at a lower setting with Bose as I feel you get a more natural and balanced audio at that level. That’s more of a personal preference. I did test it with full base to get an idea and it certainly would not disappoint people who love base heavy music.
As far as the software is concerned, you do need to download the Bose app to really get the most out of this speaker. I followed the instructions. I wish I could say it was a super easy setup but there were some slight issues with pairing the device to work with Alexa and also to get Spotify registered. That being said once you mess with the app a bit for anyone with a little bit of tech knowledge this is not a complicated set up. The firmware update I installed perhaps was not available when earlier reviewers had purchased the device. Pandora worked flawlessly right away. Like I said Spotify was a little fussy to link at first. As far as Alexa goes you need to go into the Alexa app first and add the Bose device before you can use the Alexa voice control. Once you do get it programmed the speaker is one of the best I’ve tried in this class.
My favorite feature of this device is the 6 preset stations setting with the buttons available for quick changing on the top of the speaker. Meaning you can have station #1 be your favorite pandora station and #2 be your favorite Spotify station. Or you can have several stations from just one of the apps preprogrammed in. This is a great touch that many other speakers have not adapted with physical buttons for easy control.
This is a very well made product that is fairly priced in this type of speaker class. The audio is superb. I wouldn’t take away any stars for a software issue that seems to be almost fully resolved at the time I tested the device.

The product was ordered at 7 am and delivered at around 2 pm same day thus exceeding all expectations (no one wants to wait to lay hands on new tech).
Unboxing was easy with two simple peel off tapes on either side of an upright box which looks premium. Once inside, the speaker is wrapped in white bag along with user manual (not very useful), a power cable and three pin options. Yet to understand why three different pins but I am sure people will read about them at the Bose website.
Speaker feels premium and looks premium which is expected. Build quality is robust.
One just has to plug it into a power source to start the set up. Once plugged in, you need to get on your mobile with the Bose Music app. Set up is easy as the app guide you through simple steps till you hit the update barrier. It is a little frustrating and it take a long time (many users say, multiple hours). Mine kept updating and I went to bed letting it update without fussing too much about it (try unplugging the speaker for 60 seconds and replugging to get out of the loop, it might work). Work up at 2 am and checked, the speaker software was updated.
Once the upate is done, the app asks you to setup music services, alexa etc which happens pretty quickly.
Bose Home speakers does not offer Amazon Music on the Bose Music app for India yet (why?). They really need to work towards it. Also only Spotify premium accounts are supported so get ready to get a premium subscription if INR 119 per month. TuneIn radio is built in (yet to be tested).
Bose Music app is easy to use and navigate and also great to manage music.
Bluetooth connectivity for the speaker is easy to set up and there are no drops or lags. Just press the bluetooth button on top of the speaker and it is in pairing mode instantly.
The Bose Music app lags or hangs if you switch to other functions on the phone, however it does not stop the music from playing on the speaker. One needs to restart the app to take control.
Alexa is responsive, thanks to the array of mics on top of the speaker. Amazon music thankfully is accessible through alexa (if not through the Bose Music App).
Buttons on top of the speaker are easy to use, sturdy and clearly marked.
Now coming to the most important part, music. It sounds like a very big speaker. Bass is limited given the small size but fills up a mid size room nicely. I tried listening to Indian classical, Indian Ocean-Tandanu, some AR Rahman numbers from Bombay and hip hop. The speaker plays along well and sounds like a good investment.
An in built battery to let it be a true wireless speaker would have been a boon but I am not complaining.
Pros: Sound quality, build quality, connectivity features, good app, responsive alexa.
Cons: App hangs, no battery to make it a true wireless, software update during setup takes forever. Bass could be more defined.
Overall a great purchase. Recommended.
- Excelente sonido
-alexa te escucha perfectamente a un rango de unos 10 metros aproximadamente
-el app hace todo muy practico y esta muy completa (no todo, todo pero se acerca)
-la integración con alexa es de mis cosas favoritas
-potencia. aunque fisicamente se ve pequeña la bocina tiene una fuerza muy potente se escucha por todo mi departamento. (el dept es de 100mt cuadrados entonces pues si tiene buen alcance en mi exp)
-los botones de acceso rápido para las playlist son un bonus cuando no quieres hablar con alexa o no quieres sacar tu celular
- algo que ami me parece muy molesto es que el volumen de alexa y el el altavoz no es independiente y aveces me saca unos buenos sustos.
- algo que también personalmente me parece molesto ya que utilizo mucho el auxiliar es que no puedo configurar un de los botones de acceso rápido para activarlo y tengo que entrar en la aplicación cada vez, pero si la usas principalmente por blue tooth no vas a tener ese problema.
-como no es dispositivo alexa y solamente una bocina integrada con alexa no puedes cambiarle el nombre de activación yo prefiero "ECHO" como palabra de activación pero este es mas un contra personal
- la instalación puede ser frustrarte pero una vez la bocina se conecta ya quedo
While testing the Sound Touch 300 out, I found that it wasn't as good recognising commands that my normal Alexa defice always got right.
My third comment is that you can't change the base word to wake the device. I have my Echo Dots lacated in the basement man cave. I had to change my wake word to Echo as my voice travels upstairs to where her Alexa is located and it causes great grief when my downstairs commands are playing out upstairs. Not having the abilty to change the wake word on the Bose 300 was the final straw in returning it.
Other than that it is a great speaker, just dont get 2 of them
