Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
They advertise WiFi AND Bluetooth connectable.....but you can't have them at the same time......like you can on any mobile phone......so you have to go through a complicated disconnect from one to get to the other one. Typical Bose software that never works well ALL the time.
Firstly the sound on the Bose home Portable is fantastic. It can easily be played in large rooms and fill the area with rich sound. I've played various types of Music and it gets the sound across in big bass whilst maintaining a clear treble. After comparing this to other speakers on display at a retailer I was convinced that the Bose was the winner in my mind. Now leads to a small gripe,the software or app by Bose is rather underwhelming. Not being able to receive or make phone calls is also a little bit annoying considering it does have a great inbuilt Mic.I can only hope that Bose improve on these small in inadequacies later down the track. Overall it is a rather hefty price to pay but I'm glad I have this beast of a speaker. Just be mindful that it has some bells but not all the whistles it really could potentially have.
Just go to the nearest store and listen to Bose Portable Speaker yourself, then compare its sound with Sonos, JBL and other brands. If you like how Bose plays music, then buy it. You'll love using it every day and features it has to offer! Don't make judgement by watching youtube video reviews or by listening to someone saying that Sonos etc sound better. Decide for yourself after checking it out live.
