Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings using a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The machine learned model takes into account factors including: the age of a review, helpfulness votes by customers and whether the reviews are from verified purchases.
Initial start up was frustrating as a key instruction was missing on picking the Bose from your phone wifi settings to get connected and allow the 300 to connect to wifi. This miss cost me 30 minutes of frustration and research. Finally called the BOSE support line, and pronto everything else has been good. The sound quality is fantastic, the base is brilliant. Voice recognition is still quirky and the Bose music app is good, but could be better. It does allow you to pick from Spotify and Prime Music through the app. Have not tried Alexa yet but again have not really looked as Google was already being used. Great value and sound quality. A definite buy if you enjoy listening to music and are currently using a google home mini or other...
Pros: Sound is great for one driver system..No complains. Bose App is user friendly.
Cons: Initial setup will be annoying..Firmware upgrade which will be installed before first use goes into limbo.. I had to inlink the bose devise from the app and do the set up again for it you work.. This is common problem with Bose300 as checked on the web with no clear solution offered by Bose.
