The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Home Speaker 500 a good upgrade from Sound Dock Series 1?

I currently have an Echo Dot connected via Bluetooth to my Bose Sound Dock series 1, making use of a Layen Bluetooth adapter, and whilst it is a bit cumbersome, it works almost seamlessly.


However, looking at the new Home Speaker 500 I wonder if it's worth the upgrade?


I realise that Alexa built-in is better, the options for Spotify and other things are better, but the way I am set up at the moment works ok for me.


But, is the sound quality better?  Is it louder or clearer?


Appreciate any views.
