Bose Portable Home Speaker (Luxe Silver)
Designed To Create A Spacious, 360° Sound Field - Indoors Or Out. Built-In Rechargeable Battery
Control With Voice Commands. Water Resistant IPX4 Rated
The Bose Portable Home Speaker is (1) a wireless home speaker that can be used individually or connected to a Bose whole-home wireless system or (2) can be a portable Bluetooth speaker! So it is truly an Indoor/Outdoor product with Voice Control compatibility.
Around the house, you can move it from room to room - and when you leave home, you can take it with you. Whenever it's connected to Wi-Fi you can control it with your voice and stream music directly from the internet. Outside Wi-Fi range, you can control it like any other portable speaker with your mobile phone or tablet via Bluetooth and listen to anything you can play on your device. And no matter what you listen to or where you listen to it, you'll hear it all in 360 degrees of astonishing Bose sound. It's the home speaker you won't want to leave home without.
Say It to Play It: Anywhere you can get Wi-Fi, you can use the Portable Home Speaker as a smart speaker. With the Google Assistant and Alexa built-in, just say the word to stream all of your favourite music, Internet radio stations, podcasts and audiobooks - plus get the weather, send messages, set timers, add to your to-do lists and control smart home accessories, too.
Easy Streaming: Play popular music services like Spotify and Deezer on your Portable Home Speaker anywhere you've got a Wi-Fi connection, controlled either by the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, or using the Bose Music app. Everywhere else, you can use Bluetooth to listen to anything your mobile phone or tablet can play. Additionally, you can play music on the Bose Portable Home Speaker from the Spotify app on a smartphone, tablet or computer using Spotify Connect and from an Apple device via Apple AirPlay 2 compatibility for streaming content like Apple Music.
Simple Setup & Total Control: Download the free Bose Music App to get step-by-step instructions on how to set up your speaker. Then use the App to easily browse through all of your music in one place, seamlessly jump between stations, playlists and services, and keep your speaker’s software up to date. The Bose Music App also lets you group your Bose Portable Home Speaker with any other Bose smart speakers or soundbars you have, for a seamless audio experience throughout your home. Listen to different songs in different rooms or one song in every room at the same time and get everyone singing along.
Even Better Together: The Bose Portable Home Speaker is part of the new family of Bose smart speakers, which includes the Bose Home Speaker 300, the Bose Home Speaker 500, the Bose Soundbar 500 and the Bose Soundbar 700. The Bose Portable Home Speaker can play in synchronised multi-room groups with additional Bose Portable Home Speaker units or with any of the speakers mentioned above. Start with one Bose smart speaker and add more any time. You can also send synchronised audio from the Bose Portable Home Speaker to one additional Bose Bluetooth product, such as a portable speaker or pair of headphones.
Charged Up & Good To Go: The optional Charging Cradle (sold separately here) is the perfect home for your Bose Portable Home Speaker. Keep your speakers battery full when you're not using it - or keep the music playing even while you're charging it.
Great Bose Sound: The Bose Portable Home Speaker is an incredible-sounding smart speaker that's flexible enough to handle any situation. It produces surprisingly spacious audio, including deep, rich bass that spreads evenly in all directions so it envelops you from every angle. It's battery powered, so you can easily take it with you all around your home and ask the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa for music. And away from Wi-Fi, it's still an excellent Bluetooth speaker - so your sound can go wherever you go. Plus, you can control it with the Bose Music app, Apple AirPlay 2 or Spotify Connect, or with the intuitive buttons on the speaker. And you can group it with other Bose smart speakers and soundbars to fill your home with sound - or even send synchronised audio to a Bose Bluetooth speaker or pair of headphones.
Compared to the Bose Home Speaker 300 & 500: The Bose Portable Home Speaker is Bose's only portable smart speaker, while the Bose Home Speaker 300 and the Bose Home Speaker 500 have no battery and must be plugged into the wall to function. Acoustically, the Portable Home Speaker and the Home Speaker 300 have comparable performance, with the same 360-degree sound and impressively rich bass from similarly compact sizes. Meanwhile, the larger Bose Home Speaker 500 is Bose's best-sounding smart speaker, providing wall-to-wall stereo sound from a single enclosure. The Home Speaker 500 also includes a display screen to show you what's playing. Finally, the Portable Home Speaker is IPx4 water resistant and does not have an aux input, while the Home Speaker 300 and 500 are not water resistant and do include an aux input.
All three speakers share the same voice, app and software features, including your choice of the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa, compatibility with the Bose Music app, Apple AirPlay 2, Bluetooth, the ability to synchronise in multi-room groups and more.
Compared to a Bose SoundLink Revolve+: The Bose Portable Home Speaker has noticeably more powerful acoustic performance than the SoundLink Revolve+ and is a bit larger, with a different visual design. Both products work as Bluetooth speakers in any environment, but when you bring the Portable Home Speaker onto a Wi-Fi network, it also works as a smart speaker with the Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa -plus it has all of the other features of a Bose smart speaker (Bose Music app compatibility, synchronising multiple speakers, AirPlay 2 and more). The Bose SoundLink Revolve+ does not have any built-in voice assistants, smart features or Wi-Fi access. Finally, the SoundLink Revolve+ has a battery life of up to 16 hours, while the extra acoustic power and voice assistant functionality of the Portable Home Speaker limit its battery life to up to 12 hours at loud volumes.
Acoustic Technology: The Bose Portable Home Speaker applies unique Bose portable speaker acoustic technology in a new, more powerful form factor. An ultra-efficient, high-excursion transducer aims downwards into an acoustic deflector to radiate rich sound uniformly in every direction, while three passive radiators deepen the bass by increasing the vibrating surface area of the speaker. Just like Bose SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ portable speakers, this 360-degree design avoids the positional sweet spots and frequency drop-offs of speakers that just aim forwards - but this time, with the extra power and stronger bass that come with a new shape and a third passive radiator. Placed in the middle of the room, a corner or anywhere in between, the Bose Portable Home Speaker delivers the same impressive audio experience for everyone. Music is clear, surprisingly spacious and remarkably loud for a product of this size.
