The Bose Soundbar 500 is a perfect soundbar for customers looking for better performance for all their music and movies, as well as Amazon Alexa voice control built in, where available. The music capabilities are enabled via both Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® connections. The soundbar provides good audio performance for your music and video from a one-piece, very slim design. It is so slim it won’t interfere with most TVs when placed in front of them.
