    Great yet pricey

    There’s already a ton of reviews but I wil, say this, set up was super easy, the sound is really nice and clear. Love the remote that came with it. It rivals the expensive Logitech universal remotes. Bass is okay but this is expected when it’s just a bar and does not have an external sub woofer. I bought this to get rid of my traditional Sony sound bar and sub, in order to clean up my set up and reduce the wires. This nose unit is relatively small and living in a apartment or condo, it’s nice to have great sound without worrying about blowing our your neighbors with a huge subwoofer.

    Sound I can understand

    This is not the speaker you want if you want to blow your walls off and rattle the floors for movies and get surround sound feeling, but it is plenty loud enough to enjoy and get the feeling that you are in fact watching a movie. The main reason i did get this Bose was for the clarity of the dialogue.It has a special dialogue button which reduces background noise and emphasizes the voices so you can actually hear what people are saying. 1 word to the wise, make sure you hook it up from the cable box to the speaker, not the tv to the speaker. For some reason it makes an incredible difference, especially the loudness and deepness of the sound.

    Exactly What We Needed

    We love our big screen HD Smart TV mounted on the wall but have never been happy with all the sound blasting out of the back of the TV. It would bounce off the wall and deafen anyone in the kitchen, but where my wife would sit in the living room she couldn't hear the voices unless it was sky high, and it would blast me out of the room. If your looking for a theater surround sound, look further. But if your looking for a very high quality compact soundbar with excellent sound at a very reasonable price I highly recommend the Bose Solo 5.

    Our surround sound theater in a box system died after years of great service. Rather than go the same route and have additional speakers that are not needed, we simplified and when with a sound bar instead. Should have done this a long time ago. We have a Roku and Blu-Ray player connected to the TV and an optical digital audio cable from the TV to the sound bar. Done. Sound quality is excellent. Excellent mid-range and highs and the bass is quite good considering there is not sub-woofer. We are using this in our living room but it would also be great in a bedroom. Very happy with the purchase.

    The sound bar came in a nice box. What was outstanding was that the purchase included a fiber optic cable that I plugged into my recent Sharp Roku TV also just purchased at Best Buy. The quality of the sound bar is great but I would not say excellent typically Bose speakers are very base oriented as is our American culture. I love a lot of base but love the highs and that is missing its a matter of a critical ear. For a TV speaker it does the job very well. I own a couple of sound bars and this is above average.

    Sounds Great

    Purchased to replace a bulky sound system after mounting the TV over the fireplace. The sound is great, it really fills the room with sound. Everything is very clear and full. The universal remote connected to all of my devices with full functionality. The power brick is about the size of a deck of cards and is a little hard to hide, but it comes with a Velcro strap so it can be hung from the TV mount if you have it mounted under the TV. The bass is not as heavy as I would prefer, but still sounds great. No distortion at high volumes.

    Firstly, let me get my audience right. If you are looking for a wall mountable sleek audio soundbar that delivers loud audio as well as crisp dialogue and clean music, and if you are looking for something that is not uber expensive. This product is for you. I was taken aback by the clarity it produces. I am an ex-owner of Solo 15 Series I, to be honest, I was a little disappointed with Solo 15 but couldnt do anything about it because it was company won raffle and dint wanted to discard it away. But Solo 5 beats Solo 15 in my opinion. I highly recommend this product.

    We bought a 55 inch 4K Samsung TV. Picture was amazing but we had a terrible time understanding conversations during shows. I had heard this was a common problem with the larger, thinner TVs. After reading many customer reviews, I decided to try out this Bose sound bar. It has a feature which reduces background noise/bass and makes the conversations much clearer. The first time listening was amazing. No longer do we have to increase the volume to understand what is being said. Give this produce the highest of ratings. Great price and product!

    I purchased this product after reading some of the other reviews. They are correct in that it is not going to give you surround sound but for me it really does the job because TV speakers are not of very good quality and I don't hear as well as I used to. It enables me to listen to the TV without having to turn the volume up as loud as it will go. I also like the fact that it is only one piece and I don't have to have wires all over the place. The best thing of all to me is that it was really easy to set up and I only need one remote to work the TV and the sound system. I highly recommend it.

    I was in search of a new sound bar and one that would give me clear dialogue. We don't watch a lot of movies or care so much about booming sound effects - we just want to hear and understand what people are saying. We have other Bose products and love them. This was an affordable option - though we were bummed to see it went on sale for $25 less soon after we bought it and the store wouldn't credit us because it was more than 14 days before we said anything. Like by a few days. And the bar was still on sale :( But the bar itself is great and we enjoy it.

    I purchased this Bose sound bar because the price point was great. Especially for it being a Bose product. It's small enough to fit on my entertainment system and carries good sound and base. My sony tv's sound quality is very poor which made me want to buy a sound bar to improve it's performance. I'm one happy customer, and would recommend this for someone looking to buy a sound bar that doesn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a full on sound system. This little thing does the job wonderfully. :)

    Perfect for a Small Enclosed Location

    I bought this for use with a 40" TV in my home office. It's used to listen to music during the work week, deliver computer audio for conference calls, and sneak in some PlayStation 4. The available settings for music vs. voice profiles make this perfect soundbar for a small enclosed space. My TV is mounted in a corner, so typical wall mounts that are available for sound bars would not work. I instead picked up some metal brackets from the local hardware store, and with some M8 (I believe) screws, was able to build a perfect soundbar mount that mounts directly to the back of the TV.

    Bose does it again with another amazing audio device. The sound is typical to all of bose audio products from headphones to speakers with the ability to push maximum volume with no distortion. The bass is incredible and the acoustics are crisp. I will never want to watch TV or a movie using the TV speakers again. The drawback is the massive lotion bottle size remote that controls the unit and the bricked power cord. Avoid wasting your money on imitation soundbars and just buy yourself a bose. It is a solid investment.

    Sound bar for improved dialogue

    This product does as it says. It greatly improves the clarity of the dialogue from your TV, compared to the internal speaker, without needing to increase the volume. The overall sound quality is superior as well. The remote can replace your existing one and adds features specific to the sound bar, such as being able to toggle between normal settings and the enhanced dialogue mode. It is a huge improvement and solved a very annoying condition with my otherwise very good TV.

    Great sound, can really hear things that you didn't hear before. Bluetooth works great and was easy to connect to other devices. Bass is a little lacking but overall sound is great. Was able to set my directv remote to control the volume and when the soundbar senses audio from the TV through the optical cable it turns the sound bar on. It also turns itself off after a hour of no audio. Only have to use the Bose remote if I need to switch inputs, but for normal everyday use I don't use it. Enjoy!

    I bought this just to use in the bedroom, so I was not looking for anything expensive or flashy. The sound quality is what is expected from BOSE without a bass. The only thing I wish it had, was more bass. However, I do not need a bass to keep bumping. It enhances my tv's sound and was easy to set up. I just with that using the BOSE controller as a universal remote would be easier to use with TiVo. It works, however with Tivo's distinct features and separate menus, I have to reach for the actual remote. Not a deal breaker at all.

    I bought this to replace a very old surround sound system with 5 speakers and a sub woofer. I wanted to reduce to one speaker, so I purchased this sound bar. I read some reviews on line, and I know Bose's reputation, and purchased this bar. I am very pleased with the sound; it has all the fullness I had with the larger system, in a single, very sleek speaker. Just remember, if you want to mount it, you need to purchase the wall mounting system separately, and Best Buy does not carry it. On the plus side, the optical cable was provided with the speaker.

    This is my second Bose sound bar and I bought them both for the same reason, Mario hearing is not what it used to be and I’ve had difficulty picking up audio, especially on British programs. The new televisions, while sporting an amazing picture, come up short on sound. This sound bar has a setting which accentuates the mid range so I can hear the spoken word decidedly better and that has made all the difference in my enjoyment of programming

    Thought we had to get another sound bar and wireless subwoofer when we got a new TV for a room upstairs. The person helping us agreed that was overkill and showed us the Bose. Wow! Who knew 1 3x3x22" bar could fill up the room so well! Love them! We bought 1 for the bedroom, 1 for thecraft room and for the man cave, we liked them so much! Will be getting 1 more for the guest room which is next on our next project list!

    I have been dreaming to have a bose speaker ever since because of the good review in terms of sound quality. When a friend needed a speaker for his karaoke set up I have to let go and have to give him my preloved sound bar and buy a new sound bar for my self. Iweny to best buy and they showed me differend brands but I ended up buying BOSE solo 5. I experienced great quality of sound.
