Bose Quality, Alexa Cool, But Not Perfect
Reviewed in the United States on September 20, 2018
Hack...I want to listen to Audible books on my BHS 500. I paired it with my Echo Spot. I tell the Spot to play my book. Bose plays it.
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.
