Bose®
Who says you can't have it all? You refuse to settle when it comes to finding full, rich, home theater sound in a stunning, elegant package. You believe that details mean everything. Bose LIFESTYLE 650 compromised on nothing, obsessing over every detail of this 5.1 system, so your music, movies and TV sound as stunning as it looks. Omni Jewel satellite speakers-the smallest speakers from Bose-and the slim center channel create true 360 Degree sound, so rather than hear sound from a single point, you'll hear it all around. The wireless bass module, thanks to Quiet Port technology, and a highly advanced DSP, virtually eliminates distortion and delivers surprisingly deep and clean bass. The rear surround speakers and bass modules even connect wirelessly. ADAPTiQ audio calibration fine-tunes the sound using your room's acoustics, so you can always hear it at its best, without having to adjust anything in your room. Sound Touch lets you stream your favorite music from music services like Pandora, Amazon Music and Spotify. Connect the system to your Wi-Fi network for instant in-home listening without a device, or play music directly from a phone or tablet using Bluetooth with NFC pairing. 6 HDMI inputs and 4k pass-through ensure your system works with the highest quality audio and video. Put together, everyone in the room gets a stunning audio experience wherever they sit or stand. And the setup is simple. Unify technology walks you through set up with guided onscreen messages. Sound Touch is part of an entire family of wireless products that work together. You can start with the Lifestyle 650 system, then add more speakers when you want to listen to music in more than one room-all with the simple control of the Sound Touch app. Included: Four Jewel Cube speakers; one center channel speaker; Acoustimass wireless bass module; console; universal remote; wireless surround speaker receivers; power supply; necessary cables. Available in black or white.

Great sound from a sleek and updated platform

Comments about Bose® Lifestyle 650 Home Theater System:

I purchased the Lifestlye 650 a couple of weeks ago and am very pleased with the overall performance. I've been looking for a modern design that blends well with the room and Bose sure delivered on this product. The wireless surround speakers were a major selling point as my wife was not crazy with the idea of speaker wires running anywhere. Our home is an older home that doesn't present in-wall wiring options for the rears in the theater room. The new OmniJewel satellite speakers are well designed and good looking. 4K pass through and a great number of HDMI connections sure made this hard to pass up. My wife was even more please I wasn't going to install another oversized, ugly receiver in the house. Unfortunately she has tolerated her share of unique looking pieces of tech hardware over the years and was finally pleased to see something that had great lines. To my surprise she didn't balk at the price when she saw and heard the demo unit. It was the easiest sell I've ever had when negotiating with my Dearest. The sound for my setup was more than I need. It could easily fill a room twice the size with sound to spare. The setup could be a bit daunting since the unit is packed in a rather large box. However once you identify and separate the components the rest is a breeze. I got ahead of myself by plugging things in in the sequence I had been accustomed to in other setups. It was unnecessary as the best guide is not in the provided printed material, but instead via the onscreen setup guide once the unit is connected to a TV and turned on. The manual is not your typical, "1st step, 2nd, 3rd and so forth," but merely a general guide on the different components. Once the unit came alive it walked you through every connection at a comfortable pace. You are in control and it did not proceed to the next component without your approval. Best on screen set up guide I've ever experienced. Usually a step is missed but not with this system. As mentioned before, I was a little ahead and already had the different speakers all connected. The remote is very intuitive and was able to accept and control all my existing devices. I did not expect it to control my older 73" DLP TV but it did. It will soon be replaced with a 4K set, so I am not able to comment on that pass through feature yet. Other devices connected were, Bluray player, Apple TV, DIRECTV, and even my outdated HD-DVD player. It even had the codes for it! The system is connected to my home network and Soundtouch app is useful. We all have our preferences, and improvements could be made to the app's interface, but it works. I am ordering additional Soundtouch capable speakers to listen to and control audio throughout the rest of the house. Though used primarily for home theater, the music capabilities are nice features. I even plugged a USB drive into my Router and enabled the DLNA server function and was browsing through and playing music over the speakers. What a treat for completing honey dos when the time comes. I have not used the Bluetooth capabilities yet. Overall a very satisfied Bose customer now. I was leaning toward a much different setup and was pleased with this spontaneous purchase. You must see it and listen to it firsthand if given the opportunity.

Amazing sound for such a compact system

By Bob55

Comments about Bose® Lifestyle 650 Home Theater System:

I just purchased and installed the new Lifestyle 650 to replace my 2006 Lifestyle system as it had no HDMI connections making it difficult to sync all other components to the Bose remote. However, I was successful in connecting all components with the new Bose remote, which is a nice upgrade. While installation did take several hours, Bose made it easier through the TV prompts as it walked you through each step. Also, it verified and tested the connections of each speaker by sending a tone through them. I will admit, any installation has it challenges especially as technology changes. A glass of scotch along with music from my Bose Bluetooth speaker made if even easier. After syncing my Verizon cable system and BluRay player, the TV worked immediately with only one problem. The sound wasn't what I expected. While it is not indicated in the manual or onscreen prompts (at least I didn't see it) it needed the optical cable that goes from the cable box to the Bose main unit. I went through SETUP and reconfigured the audio from HDMI to optical. The change was amazing as I now have a very rich surround sound effect. The systematic and efficient packaging (you will know what I mean when you see it) did include the optical cable. Also, I learned from the dealer a clever way of dealing with the rear wireless speakers. Since my original cable was running through the ceiling with the speakers attached to the rear wall, I had no outlets that were conveniently located to connect to the wireless boxes/receivers for each speaker. So I located the boxes behind the main control center in my cabinet under the TV and spliced it to the old wire in the ceiling. The wires were identical or compatible as I know you they need to be. The Acoustimass speaker (woofer or bass unit) is wireless and sounds great. It was helpful to read the manual on their website before purchasing the unit as it assisted me in planning my installation before purchasing the unit. One more point. Their support services are amazing as I recently had a bad speaker with my 10 year old system. They were able to find a replacement speaker that was an exactly match. While I did shop around for other systems, I had no difficulty staying with Bose. We are very pleased with the Lifestyle 650 as their technology has dramatically changed over the last 10 years. Bluetooth is a nice addition that worked easily and flawlessly from my cell phone. The compact size blends in very nicely with the decor of our room. Don't be fooled by the size as they give an amazing theater experience. Go out and listen for yourself.

Very impressed

By Stefan

Comments about Bose® Lifestyle 650 Home Theater System:

I bought the 650 sight unseen - and unheard - from a web shop. The setup took the better part of an evening, I've hardly seen such intricate packaging. Cardboard origami. A neat little separate box for every single piece, weird, but maybe this is because Bose is going to sell the pieces in various configurations - 5:1, 2:1, etc. In any case, I move frequently because of work, so I reassembled the empty boxes for using again - handy. I could not resist unboxing everything before starting the setup. The "display" pieces are beautifully designed. Really, really pretty, I can't really explain how carefully engineered and solid this stuff feels - every single one of the seven main pieces. But... I bought a white system, and if I'd had the Bose guys on hand, who decided to pack this stuff with four black power cables and three gigantic black wireless receivers/power converters, I'd have pelted them with rotten fruit, if I'd also had rotten fruit. The wireless boxes for the jewel speakers are twice the size of the speakers. And black. Not so cool... Now I need to shop white power cables separately and hide those converters under something. A nitpick, but all the other cables are white - all 300' of them or thereabouts - so this is just a silly oversight. So, three things to fix here: Pack the wireless receivers into a speaker "foot", combine the power converter into the console, and if you're shipping a white system, do it properly. Everything else feels sans compromise, including the price, and these details would be easy to get right. Did I adequately get across how annoyed I was over those extra pieces and black cables? Good :) The actual setup is incredibly easy. There is a big glossy paper sheet at the top of the box showing exactly how to get started. Follow that precisely and the rest of the instructions will be on the TV screen. I instead "opted" for the different approach of throwing aside the glossy sheet because it was in the way when I wanted to unpack all the toys. Then I forgot all about it, and by the time I had connected everything and wanted the instructions, I instead wound up looking at the user guide. That comes in about 18 languages and you don't want to drop it on your foot, and it is completely useless during setup... So, get the glossy sheet in front, follow the instructions, and then this is really smooth. That's how I wound up doing it in the end, with one exception - the on-screen instructions explicitly direct you to unplug whatever is hooked up to the TV and plug it into the Bose console instead. I tried that but I like the other way much better - the XBox and Apple TV are connected to the TV, and the Bose system only does sound, using the HDMI ARC connection. This way everything works perfectly - including AirPlay, which goes to the Apple TV. I've stuck the Bose remote somewhere out of sight, I haven't even tried the SoundTouch app, the TV (new-ish Samsung unit) is in charge, but hey, do I have excellent sound. One last setup note is that the Adaptiq calibration trick is really nice, too - the speakers auto-calibrate based on where you like to sit, which the system discovers when you put on a funny headset with a really long cable, move to five different listening places, and click the remote when ready. The funny headset is only for setup. What else. Sound? Excellent. Better than anything my ears can find fault with. Five stars, really. And the design. I'm nicking one star off the durability thingy because the console cable attachments stick too far out and it felt like I needed to be careful with that. I think those plugs should be inset under the bottom of the console. The console door also feels a little dinky compared with everything else - a tough comparison because the overall feel is so stellar.

Best lifestyle system (for right configuration)

By Lance

from Undisclosed

Comments about Bose® Lifestyle 650 Home Theater System:

The new omnijewel speakers are incredible. I love the sleek matte finish and glass top surfaces and this is a major upgrade from previous generations. I'm glad there was a choice between this and the previous type of speaker becuase placement matters. On this 650 model vs. the 600 there is a wider center speaker so that is a consideration for placement. The Bose soundtouch app and interface continues to be the most simplistic wifi speaker and I really enjoy the integration with Pandora and Spotify. The bass on this system is hands down the best I have heard compared to older acoustimass modules and 4k compatibility works well with a Samsung 4k Bluray and DirectTV box. The smaller boxes inside the main box were not as simple as previous models but being able to pull the subwoofer up and out of the bottom middle was a nice touch for the heaviest piece. in a very open space the system sound much clearer and has a much wider soundstage than any HTIB type system I have ever heard. You could for the same price build a larger system but it would not have the beautiful styling or simplicity in use. I would like to see some updates on the remote in the future and just received an email today about some new updates on the app which I have not yet done. Overall very impressive and sounds better than many Dolby Atmos HTIB systems I listened to without all the clutter. I have the older Soundtouch 30 II and Soundtouch portable and am curious as to what the app in future updates. Pros: great sound, clarity, bass, style, simple once set up Cons: remote could be better and inintial setup not fun
