All of the great reviews just haven't owned it long enough...

published

An absolutely frustrating piece of equipment. WHEN it work and WHEN it decides to keep connection with the smart TV, it has fantastic sound and base. However these are quite limited windows of time between hard resetting the TV, hard resetting the soundbar, reconnecting cables, reconnecting the soundbar to the app, etc ETC.
It does play great sound however with the price of these units I would have been better off with a lower priced unit from a different brand as a great tradeoff for reliable connection and hardware. There's no point offering great sound when most days you turn the tv on and want to throw everything out the window because you're reconnecting it all AGAIN.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi for $698.

Over rated rubbish

published

I have owned this sound bar Bose 500 and sub for about 2 years now. In that time I have had to reset the unit and set up with the internet about 30 times as it loses connection and won't connect back unless you do a full reset. Each time a setup is required it takes about half an hour. You have been warned. Also the sync between the tv and sound cannot be matched even with adjustment in the unit, it just doesn't sync up.

Purchased in at JB Hi-Fi Retail Stores for $700.

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

Love it

published

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

Price is reasonable. Features are great. Loving it.

published

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.

great appearance and sound quality but...

published

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.
