Bose has always made impressive, great-sounding speakers. The Home Speaker 500 is just that, providing wall-to-wall sound from a single speaker. The real added bonus of this speaker is that it includes Amazon’s Alexa, which allows you to control the device with your voice, too.
The speaker utilizes the Bose Music app to control the sound, as you can set up to six presets. The speakers themselves are pretty revolutionary as far as smart speakers go. The speakers use two drivers pointed in opposite directions to get the the widest soundstage from any smart speaker on the market.
The body is coated with anodized aluminum for protection that also looks sleek. Under the hood are 8 microphones that are designed to pick up your voice whether the music is playing loudly or not. You can also control the device by the buttons on top of the speaker as well.
