Bose Solo 5 review


Compact soundbar looks good, but fails to measure up in terms of performance

Compact size ; Easy to use ; Universal remote included ; Good clarity to dialogue

Lacks punch ; Narrow soundfield ; Not very dynamic ; Not a vast improvement on standard TV sound

Its small size will appeal to some, but even at this price, we want more from it in the performance stakes

Bose Solo 5 review: A small-sized soundbar for the bedroom television


The Bose Solo 5 is a simple budget soundbar with a useful universal remote, but its sound quality is a little disappointing

Small size ; Remote

Price ; Sound quality ; No included wall-mount kit

Not so great


I'm lover of Bose products and got couple of them already. But unlike the other products, this is not great and the sound clarity is upto the BOSE brand. Disappointed overall. And the universal remote supplied is very complicated and system doesn't...

Good budget sound quality


As with all the cheaper Bose stuff it's great quality sound for the money. Great little all round speaker for the front room with the bonus of Bluetooth for connecting your phone.

Great soundbar


I purchased this Bose soundbar as I have other Bose equipment and knew that it would be good quality. As expected it was easy to set up, it came with an optical cable (other soundbar don't always include them) and a great 1 for all remote control. Very...
