Great speech enhancement
My husband wears hearing aids, and the speech enhancement really helps him understand dialogue clearly without having to have a loud volume. Set up super easy and quick.

Sounds great and a great value.
I bought the sound bar and couldn’t be more pleased. I am, however waiting for the Bass 500 to get back in stock which should put this thing over the top. A very economical way to put together a sound system for our den.

Voices and dialogue are now loud & clear!
My wife has hearing loss and hasn't been able to clearly hear TV & Movie dialogue for over a year. The Bose TV Speaker is amazing! She can now clearly hear the dialogue in movies and TV shows. Watching her watch TV without her having to ask "what did they say" is the best Christmas gift ever. Thank you Bose.

Excellent Sound as Expected
We have several Bose products and they never disappoint. We love the sound. We had a Sony tv speaker that didn’t quite cut it.

worse Bose purchase: overheat & noise
It was supposed to be Christmas gift. It was overheating after 15min of use. I let it cool down a few time but same issue. At once point it starts making a high pitched noise. Unplug it and decided to exchange it. My conversation with customer service made me decide to just return it. Idk if they celebrate Christmas but the only option offered was a replacement that I will receive in 2 weeks, after new year and the holidays. I packed it, returned it and got me a Samsung sound bar which surprisingly has better sound;
I’ve spent thousands on Bose equipment in the past and because of this experience, I’m not buying anything from them again.

Awesome sound quality
I have trouble hearing conversations on shows but with the sound bar all conversations are crystal clear. Makes a tremendous difference in my viewing pleasure.
My only suggestion would be to have an LED sound level meter so you can tell how much you are changing the volume.
