Great Speak but Horrible App

I’m impressed by the wonderful sound this little speak reproduces, especially compared to the two (2) Sound Touch systems I’ve own for a couple of years.

The iOS App for the Bose Home Speaker 500 is horrible, especially compared to the Sound Touch App!

I cannot find the Internet international stations I have as preset stations on my Sound Touch 30. I cannot turn off the system either from the App or the device (no on and off physical button)!

I was using the Bluetooth fiction to play music from my iPhone X. The songs kept breaking up, the volume varying on its own, and I got annoyed so I stopped using the 500.

I found the “equalizer” (for the bass and treble) during the initial set up (I fumbled through it), but could no longer find it.

Alexa was easy to set up — but Echo Show is far superior for Alexa usage. Clearly, the sound of Bose 500 beats even the new Echo Show 2.0 by miles.

However, I’m returning this Bose 500; the App is not ready for prime time. And maybe the Bluetooth receiver and chip are defective on the unit I bought.

Bose should try to incorporate the best features of the Sound Touch App into the app for the Bose Home Speaker 500, which looks gorgeous and produces wonderful sounds, but . . . .


Absolutely Astonished

This new app makes life so much easier and with the new Alexa integration I can keep track of day to day tasks much easier and get help from my personal assistant when needed!


WiFi required

After getting this home I tried using the app for connecting the wireless speakers to the new 500 system it would not recognize the sound bar and the sub woofer and other satellite speakers would not pair together with out WiFi and internet connection!
