One Month Excellence
I paired the Bose bass module 500 with the Soundbar 500 in our living room, TV room area. The Sound bar 500 was excellent, see other review, when paired with the Bass module.
Set up was simple and direct. Bass support has been excellent as well.
after 1 month using both units: the sound is excellent. Base sounds are ever present but not over powering. The amplitude of the bass can be changed, up or down, depending on sound source and type of input. For TV, reducing the bass made dialogue easier for us; more base was great for action scenes and broad based music applications and sources.

There may be one or two changes to recommend. I would add, and may, the satellite rear speakers for a more room filling surround sound. also, I may suggest upgrading to the 700 series.

In total, the Bose Bass 500 module is a must have with the Sound bar 500.

I highly recommend getting both.

Great sound for its size
So i got the Bass module to go along with my soundtouch 300 soundbar as it was supposedly compatible. I must admit i couldn't pair it up wirelessly so have it connected with the cable which isn't a big deal as the Bass Module is tucked away behind the TV however the wireless rear speakers paired up without a problem.

One thing i have to say though is the sound is just what I come to expect from Bose it is clear an punchy and no distortion even with the volume turned up. In fact have had to reduce the bass level from normal as it was a bit much but i think that is because the room has wood floors and minimal soft furnishings. I have other soundtouch products so this is a great compliment to everthing else

Overall I would recommend this, i'm certainly happy with my purchase

A true Cinema-Like Experience
Upon opening the delivery, I was majorly excited about unboxing what I knew was packaged.
When you open certain products from certain brands, there’s a sense of suspense almost. The packaging will look professional with it’s design, it will feel like a class above any other product on the market and this just adds to the moment.

It was the case with the Bose 500 Soundbar and Bass Module. Even before opening the box, I’d already locked onto the thought that this was going to be an exceptional product and *SPOILER ALERT* - My predictions were not incorrect.

Often you can find that soundbars, bass modules and home cinema systems overall can look very plasticy, weird material to cover speakers such as a horrible felt can be used or just plain boring and sticks out like a sore thumb in your living space.
However, when you compare it with Bose’s product, the on trend, sleek professional design of the black matte and striking, white LEDs that have been used with the curved edges of the technology, it’s easy to say that it stands out from the crowd in a good way.

Apart from the premium design, the Bose 500 Soundbar and Bass Module boasts of “Alexa” to allow your smart home be easy accessible through talking to this technology.

Once I had got passed the set up with a couple of minor niggles with the Bose Music App, I was provoked to put a peculiar nerdy looking device over my head. This device was the “Adaptiq Audio Calibration” which helps optimise the acoustic performance of the product to the bespoke characteristics of your room. Lots of Sci-fi-esque sounds began to play, seeming to be everywhere around my ears but I was assured that this was all in the name of having the best listening experience possible.

After set up, it was time to play/test with this new device and show it’s true capabilities.
I listened to my music streaming services and the sound that came from this ultra slim and sleek device was truly remarkable to start off with.
I then wanted to test the abilities of punching of different sounds when watching a film. Deep wide sound was instantly provided along with clear dialogue when needed.

It couldn't be this good though, surely?

What about video games? When I have the odd moment, I do like to indulge in playing my Xbox. I’ve found in the past that nothing quite compares to wearing over the ear headphones to perceive true, 3D Surround Sound. Oh how I was wrong! I could hear exactly where certain sounds were originating from and between you and me, I once or twice turned my head around to make sure that it was definitely coming from the Soundbar and not an intruder in my home.

Less about the Sounbar for just a moment though! The Bass Module delivers thunderous bass to heighten the listening experience and only add what the Sounbar already delivers. Everything is customisable to your viewing/listening needs and can be altered from the touch of a button.
With the module only being 25cm diameter, it can easily be hidden out of view due to the wireless connectivity.

The Amazon Alexa feature in my eyes is most certainly a unique selling point. I like to think that I’ve taken my cosy, Victorian house into the 21st Century with it’s smart home additions. To be able to control all these additions with simply speaking to the Bose Soundbar is such an advantage.This is even the case when the music is very loud and you’re unable to hear yourself think, the clear voice pickup manages to do so using it’s Bose magic.

I no longer have to lift a finger again, so my life just got a little bit more lazier, my activity tracker will definitely take another hit.

Although I haven't tested the Soundbar nor the Bass Module to destruction, I do know that it will last better than my other sound modules have done so in the past. You get a good quality product with Bose. It may be a little more expensive to start with but with cutting out the need to replace not much longer down the line, you’re reducing the false economy that we’ve been sold by many of Bose’s competitors.

In my opinion, it’s designed to be compact, slimline and easy on the eye.
This is built to last like many other Bose products and as mentioned, you get a sense of this, just opening the box.

It doesn’t sit in front of your television, making a statement piece of itself. Rather, it blends into it’s surroundings and will adhere to your audio and smart home needs.

The sound quality is superb and already people have asked me if I had the system professionally installed, which should speak a thousand words and reviews for the Adaptiq Audio Calibration. Bose should definitely be proud of this addition.

Once again, I have been overwhelmed at the quality of the product and it looks the part in my living space, subtlety providing the service it brillianty delivers.

Like mentioned, it’s outdone other audio products I’ve purchased from other retailers/companies, this is undoubtedly my favorite out of all of them.
It’s a true necessity in this current time to own a Soundbar and accompanying audio equipment that can carry out the task needed and it’s built to last. With demands for Televisions getting slimmer which leads to speakers being pretty much non-existent within them or so much of a “tinny” sound, they may as well not be there.

As a relatively young professional, with needs for audio quality to be excellent and above the rest, I believe it suited both my needs and the appearance of my home. It gives a professional, cinema-like experience to yourself for a consumer budget.

The Bose Bass Module 500 is a very punchy and superb sound bass module for the compact size it comes in. The design is very sharp and clean looking, blends in tidy with my setup. Unboxing this product is fairly simple and straight forward process. Setting up an connecting it to the Soundbar 500 is a very easy process done in the Bose Connect app. The build quality feels very sturdy and well built out of premium materials. The sound quality is excellent, it accompanies the Soundbar 500 brilliantly providing very clear and accurate sound in different scenarios from listening to music to watching movies. Adjusting the level of bass is very easy again using the Bose connect app. I would highly recommend this product if you are thinking of buying the Soundbar 500 because it accompanies the soundbar superbly. To summarize the design is very sleek and build quality feels very sturdy and long lasting. This is a great companion to the Bose Soundbar 500 because it provides a real boom to music and movies.

Bought my Bose Bass Module 500 a week or so ago now & already I couldn't.t be without it. My Deezer & Amazon music accounts have been spamked senseless as I pound out my tunes on my compatible Bose Soundbar. The bass thunder is truly immense & it makes my Classic Rock soundtracks even more enjoyable. My Bose soundbar sounded great on its own, but the improvement now with the addition of the Bas Module 500 is immeasurable! It really has given my music that "Like it's LIVE" feel to it & i'm so glad I went with the impulse of my desire & bit the bullet to buy this huge improvement to my music sounds. But not just music, films have become truly cinematic now, with the low grumble of bass noise echoing out from behind me & my sofa. Its relatively compact size makes it easy to hide out of sight & the favt that it's wireless made the set up a doddle. If you want a thunder to your music & a growl to your film watching experience, this Bose Bass Module 500 has to be the way to go!

Impressive bass
I got this Bass Module 500 together with the Bose Soundbar 500 about 3 months ago and my whole family is really happy with the purchase. It is hard to believe how powerful this little 10 inch cube is. It definitely takes any music or movies to a whole new level, you are really feeling it. Honestly, I normally put may be half of the volume for everything and it's pretty loud and powerful. Sometimes I'm scared that my neighbors downstairs will come and complain.
I really love the design of this subwoofer, it's very elegant and sleek, matches well with my furniture. The size is very compact, not too heavy. I've owned other subwoofers in the past and they were bigger and bulkier with some soft fabric around that my cats scratched a lot. This one doesn't have any fabric around.
I like that it connects wirelessly to the Bose Soundbar 500 once you turn it on, makes it very easy to use. All I normally have to do to turn them both on is to turn on my bluetooth on the phone and it will automatically suggest the Soundbar 500, then I click to connect and done. It's faster then going to the Bose app. I normally like to play music on my phone during the day and at night sometimes we use a projector to watch a movie with my husband.
One little suggestion that I can give is not to put it on the carpet because it will absorb some of the bass. We have a medium carpet and it has some foam underneath to make it cushiony. When I first put the subwoofer down on the carpet, I was not sure if it was on or not, then I placed it on the lower shelf of the TV
stand and I could feel a dramatic difference right a
So, after using this Bass Module 500 and the Soundbar 500 for 3 months, we believe that it was a good investment because can save money on going to the movie theater and watch something at home. Also, we are saving not only on movie tickets, but also on snacks. Usually in the movies food or snacks are highly overpriced for what it is, we can get some organic or natural snacks in the supermarket and eat at home while watching a movie.
I think, this set would make a great gift for anyone who appreciates great quality electronics and likes to watch movies and listen to music at home.

I have been using the Bose Bass Module 500 for about 3 or 4 weeks now and the performance really is excellent. Regardless of if you are listening to music, watching movies or even sport, this Bose Bass module is sure to leave you impressed! The product looks very smart and is discreet enough to not intrude in your room. I was also impressed with the compatibility with Amazon's Alexa and the ability to conenct my Spotify and Amazon Music accounts directly. A great compliment to the Bose Soundbar 500 That I have.

Match made in sound heven!
I am seriously impressed with the bass that is produced from such a small unit. This is one impressive boom box that pairs up with the soundbar 500 perfectly. The rumbles and dull tones hit all the right spots and really add to the whole sound experience. Watching action films with this unit really brings the sound to life.

Being wireless you can hide it just about anywhere in the room. All it needs is a plug socket for power and you're away.
Setup is all done from the Bose Music app, once added as an accessory to the soundbar its possible to alter the bass intensity, which is a nice feature.

Build quality is of a high standard, and you can expect the usual sleek design Bose bring to their products. I would highly recommend this to anyone who currently owns the soundbar 500. The difference is amazing.
