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 esp.to 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.
Bose Lifestyle 650 Home Entertainment System
  • I am a huge Bose fan and was very interested in this system! I currently have many Bose products and the sound is so incredible. The Bose 650 is no exception. I thoroughly enjoy this system and its sound capabilities.
  • Enjoy the sound even more so when the action movies start. I'll continue with Bose.
  • Excellent sound system in the market and omni directional speakers are very cool and small...
  • This is a complete system! Super high quality and the remote controls everything including my apple TV so no need to add $xxx on for a harmony.
  • The Bose home theater system is a complete home entertainment product with outstanding sound. As a prior Bose product owner, the quality of their product line is outstanding.

What customers say about "Audio"
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.
Bose Lifestyle 650 Home Entertainment System
  • The wireless bass module and rear speakers give you a lot of versatility and convenience, with much less of a rat's nest of wires. The sound quality is excellent.
  • The Lifestyle 650 doesn’t allow adjusting the sound volume of the speakers based on your preference. Instead, they have a terrible ADAPTiQ to automatically adjust the sound volume.
  • Sound is incredible, the 360 surround sound resonates beautifully
  • I am always looking for better sound. I'm a huge music lover and I want a system that allows me to really feel it in my soul. When the Bose Lifestyle 650 system was delivered to me, I thought wow, this thing is huge, as the box was enormous.
  • The system sounds like being in a movie theater, with sounds never before picked up on my prior system.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Bose Lifestyle 650 Home Entertainment System
  • Overall the product is very solid and not cheaply designed. The speakers are mostly metal except for the base which is very large and has a glass top to it.
  • The wireless capabilities were excellent. I used to have to worry about hiding my wiring or wiring through the walls which is a pain. So the while the front speakers (L, R, and Center Channel) are all wired, the back ones are each separately powered and wirelessly connected.
  • The SoundTouch feature works well, once one finally figures it out. The documentation supplied with the system is very cursory and uninformative, unlike previous Bose products I have bought.
  • Compact, easy to use, and it rocks! Geek Squad did a really great job installing it and explaining everything.
  • Great movie watching experience, Every detail, and sound separation is well managed by the system

What customers say about "Connectivity"
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.
Bose Lifestyle 650 Home Entertainment System
  • Setup was a bit difficult mainly due to the fact that the directions are actually on the television and not in the box. The one in the box just shows you to connect to the TV which would have helped me with setup immensely if I understood that this was what I needed to do.
  • It was easy to set up, although the rear speakers can be configured wirelessly but I chose to set it up hardwired (since I already had wires ran).
  • Having 5 HDMI inputs, i was able to setup all my devices (Roku, Chrome cast, Laptop and Set top box. I do not have to run for plug in plug out.
  • The wireless capabilities were excellent. I used to have to worry about hiding my wiring or wiring through the walls which is a pain. So the while the front speakers (L, R, and Center Channel) are all wired, the back ones are each separately powered and wirelessly connected.
  • I connected my other rooms wireless speakers to this lifestyle and work perfectly. It is like one place controller for entire house.
