Hi, I can't seem to find an article or a topic regarding the difference between the portable home speaker and the home speaker 500. Would anyone be able to help me?
Welcome to the Bose Community!
I'd be happy to help with the comparison of these speakers. The obvious difference is that the Portable Home Speaker can use battery power whereas the Home Speaker 500 has to be plugged into AC mains.
In regards to the audio, the Home Speaker 500 has two 2½" (6.35 cm) full-range drivers and the Portable Home Speaker has one full-range, high-excursion, downward-facing, 2.66-inch (67 mm) driver, and three passive radiators.
They're both on the Bose Music platform and both support Bluetooth, AirPlay 1&2, and Wi-Fi, but only the Home Speaker supports AUX.
Is there any other questions you have?
