Product Information

The Widest Sound of Any Smart Speaker

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.

You get voice control from Alexa built in, which puts millions of songs, Internet Radio, playlists, and more at the tip of your tongue. And when the music’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 — tap the top controls to play, pause, or skip tracks, or manage it all from the Bose Music app.

When it comes to what you want to hear, there are plenty of options, too. Access integrated music services like Spotify and Amazon Music at the touch of a button. You can set up to six different presets for playlists, Internet Radio stations, and more. Or, connect over Bluetooth to play anything from your phone or tablet. And with Alexa, music is just the beginning. You have access to things like weather reports and news headlines. If you want to hear something, just ask. Plus, future software updates will add new features — like Apple AirPlay 2.

It looks as good as it sounds, with a seamless anodized aluminum body that gives the speaker a refined finish. The Bose Home Speaker 500 is part of a new Bose family of smart speakers and soundbars designed to grow with you, so you can enjoy more music in more rooms.

Bose Simple Sync

Hear your movies and music better

Bose SimpleSync is a new technology that allows you to pair a member of the Bose Home Speaker family with select Bose portable Bluetooth® speakers or Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. It’s really simple to use and it really comes in handy. Here’s how.

When binge-time and bedtime collide

Let’s say you and your significant other are obsessed with streaming the latest supernatural horror series and you’re halfway through a new episode. She’s falling asleep but she gives you permission to finish it on your own. How can you keep watching without keeping her awake? If you have a Bose Soundbar 500 or 700 hooked up to your TV, you can use SimpleSync to pair it with your Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. With separate volume levels, you can lower or mute your soundbar while your headphones stay loud and clear. Then you can finish the episode without disturbing her — and without spoiling the plot twists, either.

When it’s family movie time with the extended family

Bose SimpleSync is useful for the opposite reason, too — when there’s one person in the room who needs to hear the TV louder than everyone else, rather than quieter. For example, let’s say you have the grandparents over to watch the latest toys-come-to-life movie with their grandkids. Now, kids usually don’t mind turning up the TV really loud, but even they run for cover when Grandpa gets a hold of the remote. Luckily, loaning him your Bose Headphones 700 that you’ve used SimpleSync to pair with your Bose Soundbar 700 lets him hear things loud and clear while the rest of you can enjoy the movie without having to break out the earplugs.

When your dinner party morphs into an actual party

Let’s say you’re hosting a small party with friends, but then your friends’ friends arrive and it’s starting to feel kind of crowded. It would be really great if some of the people would move into the other room, but the music’s playing in this room, so how can you blame them? If you’re using a member of the Bose Home Speaker family and you’ve also got a Bose portable Bluetooth speaker, you can use SimpleSync to pair them and play the same song at the same time. Then you and your guests can spread out a little and keep the good times — and tunes — rolling. SimpleSync technology has a typical Bluetooth wireless range of 30 feet to stay connected.

The app that makes it all happen

The free Bose Music app does a lot of things, including help you set up SimpleSync. In just a few taps, you’ll be getting more out of your Bose speakers and headphones than ever before. To get started, make sure your compatible products are turned on and in pairing mode, and then open the app on your mobile device.

Bose Smart Speak 500
I received this Speaker for Christmas and I'm very pleased with it. Great sound, very compact. The only reason for not giving 5 Stars is due to the Bose App. it's not terribly intuitive to set up and the search function is basic to say the least. I don't have a good visual on my Spotify Playlists. The search function doesn't drill down neatly to my Spotify Playlist. Bose needs to work on this.

Refined sound from Bode Home 500; app needs work
Bose rich, detailed sound. Highs, mid tones and bass are clear even at high volumes. The app for the iPad needs an overhaul. A lot of wasted white space occurs because the app is always in “portrait” mode. The same could be said for my Bose Flex. However, the 500's app is responsive and Alexa works about 90% of the time. I’m somewhat concerned that I may have received a returned Bose 500 from Amazon since the wifi setup took three times to set up and a mysterious unknown name was looped into the setup process.

Upgrading my turntable, so I am moving my old turntable upstairs and will need a smaller speaker system for it.
