When the name Bose is mentioned, your first thought is likely the best selling, clearest sounding noise canceling headphones around. But many might not know that Bose offers more than just headphones. We had the pleasure of discovering another one of their great products, and it enhanced our enjoyment of a separate piece of technology we already had.
I should point out that music is one of our favorite things in life, and something we have near unlimited access to. Having a busy on the go lifestyle, it’s necessary when we have time to sit down and enjoy a funny movie, or just are hanging out with friends or family around the house, to make sure our music is beat-tastic and smooth listening.
Recently, Andrew and I upgraded our television to a 60 inch, and it was one of those super thin 4k screens with tiny built in speakers. It boasted Pandora, Spotify, Youtube, Netflix, all the top channels that most people use for either streaming music or movies, but one thing was missing. A full, resonant sound that delivered the tone our tv’s audio demanded.
I learned to realize that the smaller and slimmer these top-of-the-line televisions become, the less sound they’re going to produce. I remember when I was a child, my dad had a large speaker that came with his box-style tv. Man, that thing must’ve weighed a ton and took up quite a bit of space, but the surround sound was unreal. Today, the equipment still exists, but doesn’t have to be so bulky.
That’s where Bose comes in. So, you went to Best Buy and found the perfect new flat screen tv. But before you leave, you check out the sound section and take a peek at those new Bose Smart Home Speakers.
The new Bose family of smart speakers and soundbars work hand-in-hand to bring you superior Bose sound, and unlimited entertainment possibilities. Many of the new smart speakers and soundbars offer built-in voice control so users can use their voice to tell Amazon Alexa to play a song, or open an app.
These speakers also offer Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatibility, so you can wirelessly stream whatever you want, however you want.
One of my favorite features has to be the Bose Music app connection. You can enjoy one-touch access to the music you love, and manage it all from your smartphone. No more searching for the remote, or having to get up to make changes!
But some of you might ask, “what are my options?”
The Bose Soundbar 700 and 500 works with your television to offer exceptional sound with all the perks of a smart speaker with built-in features. The 700 offers you a few more speakers for louder and more crisp sound as it is a bit wider and taller than the 500. However, if you’re looking for something a little slimmer, with still just as good sound, the Soundbar 500 is right for you. It’s thin enough to fit right under your tv without taking up much space.
Key features of Bose Soundbar 700 & 500:
- Built-in voice control from Amazon Alexa
- Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatibility
- Bose Music app compatibility
- Slim and discreet
- Powerful acoustics
- Available for future software upgrades
Lastly, the Home Speaker 500 is the new cool kid on the block, offering everything you could want and more from a smart speaker. It has all the special smart features like the soundbar, Amazon Alexa, voice control, Bose music app compatibility, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functions. But it is a little more portable, as it can sync directly with your devices to enjoy Bose sound everywhere you go.
So, whether you are looking for an upgrade to your home speakers or starting fresh, consider Bose for your home sound needs.
