Bose SoundTouch 300 Alexa Compatible Soundbar for $499

It's practically an Internet tradition to give Bose a hard time. We all know the jokes by now... "no highs, no lows, must be Bose" etc. But here's the thing, the company makes good sounding, reliable, easy to use products that fit great into a modern lifestyle. This is a proven recipe for success when it comes to soundbars and that's why I am flagging this deal: Bose SoundTouch 300 soundbars are now on sale for $499 (originally $699) for a savings of $200 or 29%.

The Bose SoundTouch 300 has a premium look and feel to it, thanks to a glass top and an aluminum grill. This smart soundbar is part of a modular system that allows you to add a wireless subwoofer as well as surrounds, or just use the main soundbar as is. This soundbar features HDMI input with 4K pass-through. And unlike many soundbars, it even features a room correction capability that adapts the sound to your environment.

This soundbar has Bluetooth as well as a Wi-Fi capability and is compatible with Amazon Alexa.

Math checks out..

edit: Are referral links OK here? Shouldn't they be disclosed as such, if so?

This is Great Found Deals, where links to deals and price talk are permitted.

Mind you, as AVS Forum Editor, finding and posting deals is now a part of my job.

It's self-evident those are referral links; I don't see that there's anything to disclose.
I get where you're coming from, but give this a read before you unintentionally get in trouble: https://prettylinks.com/2017/05/affi...est-practices/

Cool, I appreciate that. I'll add a disclaimer/explainer, seems reasonable. Thank you.

Sure thing.. Just my own opinion, but I'd be much more likely to purchase through one of those links if there was a quick tagline like 'Want to help support AVS Forum? We receive a small commission on items purchased through these links.'

edit: Yeah, you phrased it better Win-win I think, you'll probably get more clicks with that tagline, and users will be better informed.
imagic and scottiemon like this.

According to my information (I work in retail) the SoundTouch 300 is NOT Alexa compatible, just its successors, the SoundBar 500 and SoundBar 700, are.
The SoundTouch line is about to die this year which is why they are on sale now.

Given that Bose advertises Alexa compatibility for this model right on the SoundTouch 300 main product page, it does not take much research to conclude that information is incorrect.

At least their advertising money are going as strong as always. You could almost think this would be the last place for them to advertise at.
It probably is. Bose does not advertise on AVS Forum. This is just a deal on a soundbar that's on sale.

Any thoughts on bose soundbar vs sonos soundbar? For tv/movies specifically (don't care as much about the music sonos capabilities with the app functionality).
