Bose Home Speaker 300 review: Solid smart speaker with Alexa and Google, but it's not the One

The Bose Speaker 300 doesn't rock in the same way as the Max with the Prodigy's Voodoo People, or sound as natural as its own big brother the Home Speaker 500. But it wasn't all good news for the Google Max: Its brightness issue is still present -- especially with rock music.

The Bose Home Speaker 300 is a solid smart speaker, and a better value than the larger 500 model.

Setup Fails Because of Firmware Update Stuck

The sound quality is good and I'm giving it two stars because it comes in a really nice box. Setup failed because a required firmware update failed. This left the speaker unusable. Spent three hours this morning researching the problem, I found many other purchasers having the same problem, then I h...

Great sounding home speaker.

Everything about this Bose home speaker screams top notch quality. The packaging is simple yet very elegant. When you open the box and pull out the speaker it is immediately apparent that Bose strives to impress.

There isn't a lot of instructions in paper form included. You have to download an app...

Fantastic audio

First off, I looked through the reviews to see why people had issues with this speaker. I noticed many were issues with the app and/or software complaints. I will touch on that aspect.

Not for music listening...

I have several other Bose systems and they pretty much perform well. This would be OK for podcasts, books, Alexa or Google voice assistants (though it doesn't support Google Play Music). It produces "room filling" -- but low quality -- murky sound satisfactory for stoned millennials. Sounds like an ...

Never expect anything but the best from BOSE!

This review is for the BOSE HOME SPEAKER 300 WIRELESS SMART SPEAKER. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try the Bose Home speaker. Upon receiving it, the first thing I took notice of was the general look and feel of the speaker. I could immediately tell that it was high quality. Set up is a b...

Good sound, but neither Alexa or Google voice assistants worked

We have had many Bose products over the years and we were very excited for this one to come out and actually pre-ordered it. However, it did not live up to any expectations. First, the sound quality was good, but not great. From there, things get worse. Over the course of a few weeks, we could not g...
