great product

Comments about Bose® Solo 5 TV Sound System:

Just bought this and thought t may be to small for the living room. IT's worked out so well may have to buy a second one for the game room. I wanted something that would allow me to hear spoken word better and this did the job.

Nothing special

By ggk

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Solo 5 TV Sound System:

Positive: It filled ambiance with sound better than TV. Bass sounds higher than the system looks like. Negative: Lacking fidelity, fast drumrolls doesn,t sound as distinctively as with other bose systems they seems to get muffeled. Owing to the smaller speaker that can be understood however I can not anticipate that from a Bose system

Blows you away

By Talonip

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Solo 5 TV Sound System:

Just bought a 55 inch tv. Good sound but not quite enough for a big room. Went to Best Buy and listened to several other sound bars and they all had very poor volume. They had this Bose tucked into another corner and I turned it on and wow. Easy hook up ( optical ). Beautiful sound at home. I am using Pandora with the unit via Bluetooth. Had a dinner party and had Andrea boccelli on and everyone wanted to hear this unit. They were blown away too. Beautiful sound and plenty of volume. Gotta feeling they might have rushed out to buy one too.

    Great, but a flaw

    By David

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bose® Solo 5 TV Sound System:

    My family and I were excited to find a used Bose Solo 5 for a good price. Immediately upon receipt I called Bose to verify the serial number and authenticity of the product. Everything checked out and my family and I set out to compare the sturdy little soundbar to our existing 2.1 soundbar system from another brand and the various other Bose products throughout our home. What was our impression? Great overall, but in the end we are passing for one specific reason I will get to shortly. First, some general impressions.... THE SOUND IS RICH - The Bose Solo 5 does have a quality rich sound. Indeed certainly a night and day difference from the tv speakers AND much richer than the Vizio 2.1. AT LOUDER VOLUMES THE BASS IS GREAT - We were all surprised to find that's Base on this little 2-driver soundbar was deep and powerful at higher volumes. We tested it on Peter Jackson's Hobbit movie where the dragon Smaug was taunting Bilbo. You can feel the bass in your chest! The 5.1 Dolby was properly decided by the soundbar and all the details of every tone (highs, lows and miss) were crystal clear. This may seem unbelievable but at higher volumes, the bass was actually better and more impactful than our non-Bose 2.1 system which has a dedicated subwoofer! VOLUME WAS SUFFICIENT - Many reviews that I have read on the Solo 5 complain about top volume not being loud enough. I found it to not be a problem. Keep in mind that the volt output of the source and max capability of the cable impact the top volume. The top volume from broadcast tv was lower than that coming from an optical table hooked up to an Apple TV. Another note is that the sound did not degrade on higher volumes like many of my other Bose products. With other products such as my Bose Companion 20 computer speakers and Bose sound link Color Bluetooth speaker, the bass seems lessened at higher volumes and the details get more muddied. The Solo 5 did not demonstrate that weakness. REMOTE CONTROL WAS SOLID - The remote was solid and easily programmed to work with our Sony televisions. TRUESPACE DIGITAL PROCESSING MADE A DIFFERENCE - Bose plays tricks with the sound so it feels like sound is coming from somewhere else other than the soundbar at times. I am not sure exactly how they do this but my guess is that they know the time difference it takes a sound from one side of the bar to get to your right ear verses your left ear. My guess is that they change the timing of the sound from the left side and the right side of the soundbar to make your brain think the sound is coming from elsewhere. The effect is not as pronounced as both sets of My bose computer speakers where the two speakers can be separated from each other more, but it is still audibly evident and exciting on the sound bar. BLUETOOTH SOUND QUALITY WAS GREAT - We were surprised that the quality of music via Bluetooth was comparable to music directly wired to the sound bar. Now for the FLAW, we could not get passed..... THE HIGHS WERE WAY TOO HARSH - This is the fault that ultimately makes the soundbar a no go for us. That is, the highs like cymbals are very harsh and stringent. The ukulele strum on the Disney song Lava, for example, hurts our ears when it doesn't on any of our other Bose products including QC 15 and 20 headphones. When the soundbar was hooked up to the kids Nintendo Wii U, the highs were very harsh when Mario would get coins. It sounded so tinny and high-pitched and nearly unbearable. We hooked the soundbar up to a variety of sources using all three input methods (optical, coaxial and 3.5 mm auxiliary) and the defect was there on all of them. So, in the end even though most of the sound was better than our Other soundbar, the one flaw made the Bose Solo fatiguing to listen to. That is, you had to almost strain your ears and enjoyed muting the soundbar for a listening break during commercials. Is the soundbar better than the typical tv speakers? Yes, by far. Are we going to resell the Bose and keep saving for a better Bose home theatre system rather than their least expensive entry-level Bose Solo 5? Yes, the harsh highs leave us no choice. Others though, especially those new to Bose - will find the rich sound very inviting. Also, I have come to trust Bose and imagine that the emphasis on treble is a purposeful trade-off in order to enhance the voices which is the emphasis of this particular product. Yet, in the end now having put the Solo through its paces, I understand way the soundbar has received such mixed reviews.

    Great for my apartment !

    By 49rbear

    Comments about Bose® Solo 5 TV Sound System:

    I installed this the other day and it's great in my apartment living room. I'm not a lover of hearing strong bass all the time but this delivers bass perfect for me while watching TV. Thinking about buying one for the bedroom but I don't really watch TV in there enough to justify buying another one. Think I'll use the old sound bar in there.

    Great for a kids room.

    By HungryJosh

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Bose® Solo 5 TV Sound System:

    I'd like to start that I am a Bose fan. I have the 525, wireless, wired headphones, and sound links, but he solo 5 is lacking that Bose punch I'm use to. I brought it for my man cave and wasn't impressed. It's that same volume as my Samsung tv which is disappointing. For music it's quite loud and I have no complains. Bose needs to head back to the lab and give this thing more juice in order to stamp a Bose name on it.
