What customers say about "Key Specs"
Bose Lifestyle SoundTouch 535 Entertainment System
  • Rep at the Bose store played a song on both the 525 and 535, same volume and going in between both systems simultaneously.. And you could hear the difference. Both sound amazing but the 535 was definitely more immersive.
  • This is the best system I've ever had, the sound quality is amazing.
  • Clarity of sound : dialogues, music, actiaon sequences. You could feel the sound getting split between the speakers and surrounding the room.
  • Excellent quality sound. However I have some problems with image that suddenly disappear from the screen. It happens frequently with all the sources connected to the system. I tried to update the system but the problem persists.
Bose Lifestyle 600 Home Entertainment System
  • The Acoustimass 300 bass module that comes with the Lifestyle 600 is very impressive. The V35 Acoustimass module (PS48III) also impressed me but the 300 raises the bar here.
  • First time to have this Bose home theater system and didn't disappoint me at all!.The more i listened to it the more I love sounds.Highly recommend those who appreciate and love music/sounds.
  • Replaced my bose T20 with this unit, as usual bose never disappoints.
  • It sounded just as good at home as it did at the store and the acoustic calibration was quick and not unpleasant.
  • Beautiful design, Bose spends no expense on quality from the inside to the outside.

What customers say about "Audio"
Bose Lifestyle SoundTouch 535 Entertainment System
  • The sound of course is as it should be--its a treat to listen to anything play through plays beautifully and the for movies--like being in a movie theater.
  • I particularly like to see live music videos/dvd/blu-rays on my 114" projector- screen and the complementary trinity of a high-end screen + projector + surround sound from my 535 has left many a vistor saying it is almost as good as having the best seats in a concert !!!
  • Beautiful Surround sound as heard at the Bose store (have to setup based on room and settings).
  • When it comes to music there is nothing next to Bose. I am happy to drop my idea of going with Sonos as there is no comparison if you are a serious music lover.
  • Sound quality has a rich bass, typically full of feel of American taste. You may be a bit disappointed if you love European sound quality, which is rich in mid range.
Bose Lifestyle 600 Home Entertainment System
  • I love the tiny speakers in combination with the unbelievable sound quality that Bose is famous for.
  • Great sound quality for a person who loves quality sound.
  • Clear dialog and nice vibrant midtones clean highs without shrillness, beautiful spatiality, with a enjoyable imaging and a wide soundstage.
  • The receiver makes it the center of the entire setup. You can change anything in sound quality to your liking.
  • Words cannot explain the 360 degrees sound quality, so I’m not even going to explain it.

What customers say about "Features"
Bose Lifestyle SoundTouch 535 Entertainment System
  • Just put in a home theater and used the Bose Lifestyle 535 series - sound is great. I am pleased and would recommend.
  • Bose 535 is an easy to use system. With only a few steps, it helps me set up the surround sound in my living room.
  • I have this system installed in my home theater. Setup is a breeze! Wonderfully spacious three dimensional sound --- you'll find yourself ducking for cover during battle scenes when the bullets magically whiz over your head.
  • The audio-calibration feature is pretty cool and programs the system to 'sense', calibrate and adjust the output to suit the size/acoustics of the room. If you move it to a different just takes less than 5 minutes to re-calibrate the system to optimize the sound.
  • Not Reliable - sound and video cuts off for all HDMI sources.
Bose Lifestyle 600 Home Entertainment System
  • SoundTouch enabled means you can connect the Bose console to your wifi and stream high quality music and even update the system wirelessly using the SoundTouch App (which I heard some people don't like the App).
  • I highly recommend going with the lifestyle 600 over the SoundTouch 300 setup. I know it's almost twice as expensive but the extra features are so worth it!
  • App feature on your phone allows you to do almost everything your remote can do.
  • I really disliked the harmony style unify remote and the double click buttons, and the lack of dedicated source buttons.
  • The documentation was sufficient for only the most basic usage, no specifications, no guide to using or configuring the remote, no actual explanation of the technology at all.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Bose Lifestyle SoundTouch 535 Entertainment System
  • Easy to program and use as it serves as a well-functioning 'receiver' as well. My 535 has my Roku, blu-ray player, I-pod and wireless transmitter for my projector (Epson 5030 UBe) connected to it...with ports to spare to connect my computer if I want to.
  • Of note and a minor disappointement was that despite spending $3.5K (bought it when it first came out) I still had to buy a separate connector/pod for my would think that for that price it would come included.
  • Great sound, I wish I could connect another unit via RCA plug.
  • This product doesn't have simple features like USB input (it has only for photos ... sedimentary era).
Bose Lifestyle 600 Home Entertainment System
  • Setup was a breeze with this system. The first step is to connect the console to power and connect it to your TV using the hdmi ARC connection. Then the system walks you through the rest via the on screen display. The 2nd step is pairing the remote since it isn't paired from the factory.
  • One interesting difference from the 600 to the V35 is on the 600 the front 3 speakers are connected with one thick cable directly to the back of the console which splits into 3 separate cables for each speaker.
  • The sound quality is great. the only issue is that my PS4 and XBOX One do not work when routed through it and I have to plug them directly into the TV.
  • Super easy to set up, no cables to buy, trim/cut/layout/hide, easy to experiment with speaker positioning at a whim.
  • The TV has NO HDMI (ARC) port. Why was I not informed of this?
  • Initial setup is simple following on screen prompts but, after that, it is nothing but trouble and aggravation.
