Bose Soundbar 500
we brought the soundbar for the loungeroom along with the matching subwoofer.I would rate them i was surprised the sound they deliver suitable for an open plan livingroom. If you are looking at a soundbar i would suggest the bose.Paid 1200 for both the soundbar and subwoofer

A sound bar that you CAN live WITHOUT
The main thing is that the sound quality of this sound bar is not much better than my 2 years old Samsung Smart TV in built speakers. It has a some noticeable additional bass compared to the TV in built speakers, but not a level of bass that you would be satisfied with having spent $700. Similarly the improvement in sound quality from the TV in built speaker (if any at all), certainly does not justify the spending. Also, it is difficult to adjust the sound volume. The adjustment can be made either through the app or by using the controller that...comes with the sound bar, but the adjustment seems to be disproportionate every time you press the + or - button. It would be nice if there is visual indication of the sound level. The only upsides are that the sound bar has a really nice appearance, and the app allows you to listen to digital radio and preset them so that you can operate with the included controller.

Bose is not the quality company you thought it was
Bose make soundbars that systemically die after about 18 months and promote customer service channels that are mostly non-existent. Bose is not the quality company that they once were.
For the global thread that shows how their power units are faulty and systemically die after 18 months.

Know better, choose better.
Recently upgraded to the Bose Soundbar and am incredibly happy with the quality of the sound and acoustics. Slimline design.
Only issue is the additional purchase of brackets required to be mounted on the wall
Purchased in May 2020 at Virgin Wines.
Price is reasonable. Features are great. Loving it.
We bought it because we thought it was pretty good price. But it actually has a very good sound for a small item and the features such as Alexa is very helpful. Never thought that we would be using Alexa but in the end it becomes part of our daily life even the kids loving it. Reasonable price, nice looking and easy to set up. Very happy.
Purchased in August 2019 at online for $615.00.
great appearance and sound quality but...
many give bose flack for its cost but the 500 sound bar is high quality and far better appearing than its sonos rival. When added to the sub it can fill a room to 60 square meters quite nicely. However, its falls apart with the fact yuo cant add other brand speakers to it wifi network. For this reason if wanting a more powerful and diversified speaker portfolio, despite bose's great performance it may not be for you.
