This high quality smart speaker has Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant built in, but it's far more than a voice control hub. Custom left and right driver placement create amazing, room-filling sound that lives up to the audiophile reputation of Bose, and at this price there's never been a better time to buy.

The Bose Home Speaker 500 was released back in 2018, but it's still among the best smart speakers you can buy in 2021. 

This Bose wireless speaker accomplishes astonishing, room-filling sound thanks to two custom drivers pointing left and right within its smooth shell. Bose designed such a setup to achieve stereo sound separation without the need for a second speaker, and it achieves an impressive soundstage despite the speaker's subtle size. 

The Home Speaker 500 model also features an LCD screen displaying the current track you're playing. as well as AirPlay 2 compatibility and a custom eight-microphone array that picks up commands from wherever you are, no matter how loud your tunes are playing. 

With Google Assistant and Alexa built-in, you can ask this speaker questions and use it to control your other smart home devices, from your lights to your thermostat.

We gave the Home Speaker 500 a glowing review, but one drawback was its original price. If you're after a high-quality speaker with Google Assistant and Alexa built directly into the experience, however, this discounted price is perfect for you.
