      Nice System

      Posted

      I am a huge Bose fan and was very interested in this system! I currently have many Bose products and the sound is so incredible. The Bose 650 is no exception. I thoroughly enjoy this system and its sound capabilities. Overall the product is very solid and not cheaply designed. The speakers are mostly metal except for the base which is very large and has a glass top to it. I believe the makeup of the components helps the sound immensely. Noting that the materials are very solid this does equate to a heavy weight. I needed help getting the box to the house as the base speaker alone was 30 lbs. and it all comes in one huge box. Setup was a bit difficult mainly due to the fact that the directions are actually on the television and not in the box. The one in the box just shows you to connect to the TV which would have helped me with setup immensely if I understood that this was what I needed to do. As well the cabling is not labeled, color coded, or anything so you have to guess a bit at which cable goes to what. The wireless capabilities were excellent. I used to have to worry about hiding my wiring or wiring through the walls which is a pain. So the while the front speakers (L, R, and Center Channel) are all wired, the back ones are each separately powered and wirelessly connected. The electric/wireless adaptor is a bit cumbersome as it is larger than you would expect with everything else being so sleek and compact. The remote was also very sleek however it doesn’t seem to do very much, although maybe I’m missing a bit and will discover more uses later. Once setup the sound was excellent! I even upgraded my cable package because it worked so well. I love music and I love Bose speakers however I was a bit disappointed with the interface. I use Pandora on my smaller Bose box and can control it with my iPhone, which is cool, however for this system I would have expected a bit more built in functionality without using my iPhone. So any music I want to listen to on my network, online, or using an internet service had to be controlled with my iPhone. Overall it’s a nice system, very slick, solid, and a beautiful sound. I am very impressed. It could use a few more updates by Bose which I am hoping they will consider in newer versions.

      Disappointed: 4K Pass Through Issues

      Posted
      Bosebuyer

      I have waited months to post this disappointed review for the Bose 650. First of all the sound quality is excellent thus that is not the issue. However, it’s a home theater system and should work with external devices without any problems but that is not the case. Several months ago I upgraded to 4K devices (e.g. Sony TV, Apple TV 4K, Xbox One) and connected all components to the Bose 650. The system advertises it has 4K video source capabilities. Unfortunately, problems started to occur such as green vertical lines down the sides of the TV or discoloration when viewing the ATV and Xbox. The store manager replaced the console however that did not resolve the problems. I cannot recommend this ‘expensive’ product until the 4K pass through issue is resolved. I strongly recommend you read the post on the Bose Community before purchasing. The details of this problem are thoroughly described on a lengthy post found on Bose’s Community under Lifestyle 650 Green Vertical Lines on Edge of Screen. Many others have reported this problem thus Bose Engineering is aware but a resolution has not been provided.

      Superior Sound Quality

      Posted
      AmandaGuil

      I am always looking for better sound. I'm a huge music lover and I want a system that allows me to really feel it in my soul. When the Bose Lifestyle 650 system was delivered to me, I thought wow, this thing is huge, as the box was enormous. Thankfully, it was mostly packaging, and the product is sleek and fits perfectly in my home. I thought physical setup set up was pretty straightforward, hardest part was getting my husband off the couch to help place the individual speakers up high for me. I didn't like that you have to use a TV to have the software set up. I didn't want to connect it to my TV, I intended to use it mainly with my phone music apps. However any anynnoyances I had with set up instantly dissipated when I heard the beautiful sound coming from around me. I have a lot of experience customizing sound systems and know exactly what I want to hear. This system from the box sounds amazing, without needing any tweaking of the equalizer. The remote user interface makes it simple and easy to adjust sound settings, as well as functioning as a universal remote programmable for all your device needs. There is an app to control it as well. I personally like to get in depth with settings, and this system doesn't have too many extra options for that but as I've said doesn't need it, as interface to sounds exceptional from the box. This Bose 650 system is pricey but totally worth the money if you really enjoy a good quality system. It blows away anything I've ever listened to before. My car has a really awesome system too and this makes that sound bad comparatively. Bose has a great reputation for quality products and this is one of them!

      Wow, game changer

      Posted

      I have to say, this is my first Bose product and I am in love. I went straight from TV speakers to this Bose 650 home entertainment system, and wow. I can actually wash dishes and watch my favorite show now, before I couldn't even hear the TV over the running water. The overall design of the product is great, solid, sleek, and for the most part, compact. The base speaker is heavy and you will need a good spot for a 30 pound black box, but it’s worth it. Listening to music through this bad boy is like having the band in your home and watching a movie is like you are there! I could not be more impressed with the sound quality. As for the setup process, I would not say that it was the easiest thing I have ever set up, but it was relatively simple. It comes with paper instructions but they are mostly just to get you to the on screen TV instructions. From there, you just follow step by step and if you run into any problems the on screen instructions will direct you to call a support team (I did not need help from the support team). At this point, I have had the entertainment system for 4 weeks and have yet to run into any issues, however I still consider this the honeymoon phase. Although I have not had it long, I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone. The sound quality surpasses anything else and the wireless feature is dream! This product is really amazing. I received this product to test for 4 weeks and to send back without any compensation for my review.

      Great sound but...

      It has great sound and the omni directional speakers are very cool. I wanted only one HDMI cable going to my wall mounted TV so I loved the idea of plugging all the other into the BOSE and letting it send the video signal to the TV. Whether this is the cause or not I had to adjust the audio delay several times to sync the sound. Sometimes on power up it does not remember it's last selection on the source so I have to change it. The remote is very heavy and does not have all the buttons I need to control my standard cable box. So it is now it is yet an extra remote. On occasion when I first boot it the video display is very dim and I have to reboot everything. The instructions for the AdaptiQ were lacking and BOSE support was no help. I am single and the AdaptiQ makes you sit in four completely different locations. I don't want the sound perfect for four location but just one. So the AdaptiQ I thought would be so great is not. I have no clue why they don't give battery options for the rear speakers so a power cord does not have to run across the floor. For this sound I would not mind replacing batteries often if that is what it took. The wiring for the corner speakers is old fashioned bare wires. This looks tacky. There is not reason they could not have made them plug in like everything else.

      Finest system with the style, elegance

      Posted
      pri9949

      Being an avid music listener, I was in a constant search for a home theatre that is best in the market. After a long wait, I found it in 'Bose Lifestyle 650'. I can say, its the finest technology that comes with the style, elegance, perfection, yet simple and small. We are very impressed with its looks, rich quality in sound, granular frequencies that are hard to hear in other music systems. Honestly, I could get the same level of experience as that of watching movies in theaters with dolby effects. We are totally impressed with the way it absorbs the disturbances that can be noticed in other music systems. Best of all is, I can integrate most of my other music gadgets (like iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Blu-Ray player, Dish TV) with the 'Lifestyle 650'.. such that I can listen to them by switching to the respective audio source (which is a single tap on the remote). When my infant kid is sleeping, I can switch to the 'cordless head phones' and enjoy the same level of excitement. With this, I believe 'Lifestyle 650' addressed all options within the single package. Though we got different boxes for all the components, the installation is quite simple and I have done most of the assembly without even looking the manual. I would definitely recommend this product to all my friends, family and colleagues

      Set Up Was a Breeze

      Posted
      chellefish1976

      Upon receiving this I was definitely excited because I and my family are music and action movie fanatics,also I am very familiar with the quality Bose has to offer as I own Bose head phones and have Bose speakers in my vehicle. To start I have owned several speaker receiver components Kenwood and Pioneer and know the headache of having to run speaker wire and fine tune base and treble right, center , left speakers to your liking .What I absolutely love is that the set up of system is not as complicated as I thought that it would be(actually very easy!), however I am still amazed at the amount of wiring that is still involved with such a sophisticated piece of equipment this day in age ,I digress this minor pain more than makes up for the impeccable sound quality that is and is only BOSE! We started off with watching war movie U-571 if you are familiar with it you know why we wanted to watch it first after setting up this system the ballistic blasts from torpedoes , thuds and ,creaks from a submarine as it depressurizes will have you shaking in your seat (it was literally like being in the belly of that submarine. Bose's bass module will rock you to your core.It gave us a new appreciation of this movie and the Bose brand. JUST AMAZING!!!!!!

      Excellent sound system with some glitches

      The system is relatively easy to set up, once the software update is completed. I spent some time trying to get sources to work, etc., before the update, which is supposed to be automatic, suddenly started loading. The update solved many of the functionality issues with my sources, but not all. Some of the buttons on the remote still don't work, although Bose assured me that future updates would probably take care of this. The wireless bass module and rear speakers give you a lot of versatility and convenience, with much less of a rat's nest of wires. The sound quality is excellent. The SoundTouch feature works well, once one finally figures it out. The documentation supplied with the system is very cursory and uninformative, unlike previous Bose products I have bought. One simply has to figure things out by trial and error, but have patience and you'll be pleased with the results.
