ULTRA-HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH AN ULTRA-THIN DESIGN
This stylish soundbar is meant to be heard, not seen. That’s why we engineered custom-designed drivers to keep the Bose Soundbar 500 almost impossibly thin, without taking away from the acoustic excellence Bose is known for. Measuring only 5 centimetres high, its profile fits discreetly under your TV screen, so you won’t even know it’s there—until you hear it. And with Amazon Alexa built in, you won’t have to lift a finger.
Like the Bose Soundbar 500, it’s the little things that make a big difference. It may be our thinnest soundbar yet, but its powerful acoustics fill the entire room with sound you just have to hear to believe. Come and visit us to experience it for yourself.
EXPLORE THE FEATURES
Sounds good, anywhere
ADAPTiQ audio room calibration will optimise its acoustic performance for the unique characteristics of your room—giving you the best possible listening experience.
Elegant light bar
Not sure Alexa heard you? An ingenious light bar helps indicate when Alexa is listening, thinking or speaking.
Clear voice pickup
Custom-designed microphones in both the front and back of the soundbar deliver superior voice pickup, so Alexa will still hear you even when the music is playing loud.
Custom-designed transducers provide superior clarity while maintaining an incredibly slim design.
The soundbar’s recessed ports use a piece of resistant screen to reduce turbulent noise while getting more sound through a smaller opening. The result? Virtually distortion-free bass from a slim profile.
Built-in voice control
With Amazon Alexa built right into the Bose Soundbar 500, you can control your music, get information, manage your day and so much more.* You have access to everything Alexa has to offer—all without lifting a finger. But what good is Alexa if she can’t hear you? Experience superior voice pickup from a custom-designed eight-microphone array that will still hear you, no matter how loud your music is. And an ingenious light bar will help visually indicate when Alexa is listening, thinking or speaking. Plus, it just keeps on getting better. Future software updates will unlock new features.
MUSIC. ANY WAY YOU WANT IT.
When it comes to what you want to hear, you have so many options. Play your favourite music services, like Spotify or Amazon Music, over a home Wi-Fi network at the touch of a button. Or use a Bluetooth® connection to play anything from a phone or tablet. And Apple AirPlay 2 is coming in early 2019.
Take control of your listening experience
With the Bose Music app, you can easily browse through all your music in one place and seamlessly jump between stations, playlists and services. Plus, it’s another simple way to control the Bose Soundbar 500. Setting up presets with the app is easy, so the music you love is just one touch away. And multiple users can personalise their own experience and content. Plus, the app makes setup simple by walking you through each step.
