Bose Soundbar 600 Review: Unleashing Superior Sound

The Bose Soundbar 600 is a game-changer in the audio world, offering unparalleled sound quality and immersive experiences, it also has Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa built-in. The speaker exceeded a lot of our expectations. Its sleek design and cutting-edge technology deliver crystal-clear stereo sound that elevates any home entertainment setup. The ease of installation and seamless connectivity make it a top choice for both novices and audiophiles alike.


The Bose Smart Soundbar 600 has a light weight of only 6.9 pounds. It has two buttons on the top left; one activates Alexa and the other button mutes Alexa and the mic, a red light shows when the mic is muted. All the other stuff is controlled by the app and a small remote that comes with the soundbar. It has a designated HDMI port, an optical port, and a port from which you can connect an external subwoofer. The soundbar has decent build quality and is very sturdy.

You must download the Bose app for the full setup and wifi connectivity. The setup is very easy, you need to answer a few questions about audio preferences and the space the soundbar will be in. The app is also very easy to use, with options to add Chromecast, Apple Airplay, and Spotify Connect. You can use Bose voice control on this speaker to control your TV or your cable box. The soundbar includes Bose SimpleSync that you can toggle from the app, this pairs it with compatible Bose headphones and speakers.

​​The sound quality of the Bose Soundbar 600 is truly exceptional. The audio produced is immersive and rich, providing a theater-like experience right in your living room. The Surround Sound configuration offers a multi-dimensional audio experience that fills the room with clear and detailed sound, the Dolby Atmos performance was excellent. In our testing, we found that the sound was full and present without any high-pitched overtones. The Bose Soundbar has two side-firing and two up-firing speakers that easily fill a room without going over 50 percent of its volume. If you’re having trouble hearing the dialogue in movies, there is a dialogue mode that you can turn on in the app that improves the clarity of vocals. The soundbar handles height perfectly for its size, it feels that the sound is perfectly centered in front of you.

Surprisingly, the Bose Soundbar 600 does not have a subwoofer. You cannot feel that low-frequency heavy beat that comes from action scenes in movies. The soundbar also doesn’t have room corrections. This means that you will hear some sound only from a specific angle, and you will have to find a sweet spot that gives you the sound perfectly. Because the Bose Soundbar costs $500, we feel that Bose should have integrated room correction into the speaker.
