Bose announces new Portable Home Speaker with Assistant and Alexa for $349

Is Siri or Alexa making us impolite?

Is Siri or Alexa making us impolite?

Smart assistants like Google Assistant, Siri, and Alexa are pointing people to fake customer support numbers in a new technique used by scammers, according to the Better Business Bureau . Unlike other Bluetooth speakers, the Home Speaker 300 has no inbuilt battery and required to be plugged at all times.

The Bose Portable Home Speaker is a cylindrical-style speaker measuring 7.5 inches tall and about four inches across.

Bose announced its $349 Portable Home Speaker today, growing its smart speaker selection to three high-quality, voice assistant-enabled audio devices.

Annie Park leads CP Women's Open; Brooke Henderson 1 back
Her 66 matched the opening round she shot past year at the CP Women's Open, which, of course, she went on to win. Did she have trouble getting to sleep on Wednesday? "It looks like they've stuck to their game plan".

So when there's a new Bose product, we're interested: step forward, the Bose Portable Home Speaker. Those in the southern hemisphere will have a chance to take the Bose Portable Home Speaker out and about soon, though. The speaker itself will be available from 19 September in the USA $349 in black or silver.

Packed into an aluminium body, the Bose Home Speaker 300 offers six preset buttons, touch and app control. On top of that, the Bose Portable Home Speaker features AirPlay 2 support, which will allow users to play music from Apple devices, or Spotify Connect to listen directly from the Spotify app. "We lived with it like anyone else would - with our families and friends, away from work - to make sure it was the kind of product we wanted to use, day after day".

The speaker houses just one driver, but broadcasts its sound in 360 degrees thanks to three passive radiators (which are pushed and pulled by air moved inside the unit by its one speaker), and a sound deflector. It, however, was bested by Siri in the "Command" category, proving that Apple's digital assistant is more useful for phone-related functions like texting or playing music. And while the left and right channels in standard one-piece systems can cancel each other out - leaving audible gaps in music - the Portable speaker won't. And seeing as its a Bose speaker, the sound quality is likely going to be good enough for both indoors and outdoors.
