Sure, you can listen to music on your phone. But it’s not going to sound so hot. You know the drill: The more you crank up the volume, the more muffled the audio.

The Bose Home Speaker 300 is an impressive little number with a 360-degree design. The sound is crisp and clear, plus you get smart home features via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant and access to music streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more.
“I am really impressed with this small speaker,” wrote a satisfied five-star reviewer. “Every voice, musical instrument, footstep, car door, even the fall of leaves can be heard from this device. Watching movies from my tablet has never been better. This Bose produces fantastic sound. I keep my volume on low and it can still be heard in the next room.”
In fact, you can bring your own music to the party—just connect the speaker to your phone via Bluetooth, WiFi or Apple Airplay 2.
The reviewer continued: “This device can be your source of entertainment for your dinner party or fiesta. I used it during a family gathering rather than hiring a DJ and it was heard throughout the entire room that seated 200 people. I also use this speaker when I'm exercising or even doing yoga or meditating with the sounds of waves crashing. I love this speaker!”

The Bose Home Speaker 500 is a beefier big brother to the 300 model with a wider range of sound, eight built-in microphones for ambient noise rejection (compared to the 300’s six-microphone setup), six presets to customize your audio experience and an interactive touchscreen to make it easier to control your favorite music and podcasts. It has the same 360-degree design and smart home features as its little brother, but with a bigger audio profile and futuristic build.
“The Bose 500 speaker impresses,” a delighted shopper wrote. “It is a stately speaker that looks good on your kitchen counter. But even better than how it looks, it sounds terrific. Effortless bass and rich well-balanced sound. The expansive soundstage is immediately satisfying to the ear. It can go louder than you can withstand, with no distortion. You will not be disappointed with how it sounds. Music integration is top notch: Pandora, Spotify, Sirius XM, Amazon music, etc. all work flawlessly. Alexa is responsive. The six preset buttons are no gimmick, but quite useful. Easy to set up, easy to use. Really enjoyable to listen to at all volume levels.”
