Many of us would like nothing better than to plonk our bodies down in our favorite chair when we return home, kick back and relax — preferably with our favorite tunes playing in the background, of course. Music is food for the soul, and a good home theater system also works wonders to de-stress with a great movie. Bose has come up with the Soundbar 700 and Soundbar 500 which will crush the limitations of spaciousness from a solitary enclosure, as it merges size-defying performance with superior voice pickup as well as the power of Amazon Alexa. There will be support for other voice assistants in the future, as well as AirPlay 2 compatibility for simple streaming from Apple devices from early next year onwards.
The Bose Soundbar 700 has been specially engineered to outperform every other product in its category. Of course sounding great is one thing, but the engineers at Bose have also come up with a stunning design to match its performance. Never, ever judge a book by its cover, or a speaker by its design in this case, where it measures slightly more than 2″ in height, 4″ deep and 38″ long, while boasting of curved clean lines, a wraparound metal grille, and a gorgeous tempered glass top. Underneath the hood, there is plenty of proprietary technology to keep it going.
It is said that seeing is believing, but the Bose PhaseGuides will need to be heard to be believed. PhaseGuides will send multiple channels of a soundtrack or song via space, placing discrete sound in places where there are no speakers. Working in tandem with Bose DSP, custom low-profile transducers, and QuietPort technology, your ears will enjoy exceptional detail and depth when it comes to your favorite music tracks, while you will never miss a word in a movie ever again with crystal clear dialogue, and experience dramatic realism when it comes to sports.
The Soundbar 500 is no slouch either, as it switches seamlessly from audio for video to music, measuring 1.75″ high x 4″ deep and slightly more than 31″ long. Either model, they will feature proprietary ADAPTiQ technology that can acoustically adjust to its surroundings, as well as HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC) for compatibility with future technology. The Bose Soundbar 500 and 700 will retail for $549.95 and $799.95, respectively, so what are you waiting for?
