Bose Soundbar 500
ULTRA-HIGH PERFORMANCE WITH AN ULTRA-THIN DESIGN
This stylish soundbar is meant to be heard, not seen. That’s why Bose 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 two inches 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 Bose's thinnest soundbar yet, but its powerful acoustics fill the entire room with sound you just have to hear to believe.
The soundbar’s recessed ports use a piece of resistant screen to reduce noise while getting more sound through a smaller opening. The result? Virtually distortion-free bass from a slim profile.
Custom-designed, low-profile transducers provide superior clarity while maintaining an incredibly slim design.
Clear Voice Pickup
A custom-custom-designed eight-microphone array delivers superior voice pickup, so Alexa will still hear you even when the music is playing loud.
Elegant Light Bar
Not sure Alexa heard you? An ingenious light bar helps indicate when Alexa is listening, thinking or speaking.
Sounds Good, Anywhere
ADAPTiQ audio room calibration will optimise its acoustic performance for unique characteristics of your room - giving you the best possible listening experience.
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’s always 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 favorite music services over a home Wi-Fi network, like Spotify or Amazon Music, 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 early 2019.

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 personalize their experience and content. Plus, the app makes set up simple, walking you through each step.
