Bose Home Speaker 500 Buzzing


Bose product name

Home Speaker 500



Firmware Version



What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on


Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce

I don't know what suddenly changed but I have been using my home speaker 500 for a while with no issues at all and then suddenly started to get a buzzing sound when the volume is at anything but very low. Even with the base down low it still occurs. It buzzes whether connecting through bluetooth or directly to Spotify via Alexa, makes no difference. 

I tried moving to a different place, different surface to mount it on with no difference at all. This is not a cheap speaker but is completely useless now!

Where do you run into the issue?

This week

When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously?

It worked perfectly before but came out of nowhere

Any troubleshooting steps you took

Moving the speaker, checking the firmware, trying different source. Nothing made a difference.
