A very good app but could use some improvement

I own the Soundbar 700 with Surround Speakers. I placed the 700 on a TV table so it could be at least 18 inches from the wall to increase base response. I love the presets that I can define with this app. Bluetooth connectivity to the soundbar controlled by this app is superb.
What could be improved:
- a more refined equalizer. Base, Treble, and Middle Speaker work fine, but would like the option for one that’s a bit more sophisticated. 1) Adding a spaciousness adjustment would be nice. 2) Redefining the room sweet spot for surround. 3) adding PARTY MODE, where all the speakers play the same music without effects (no surround) would also be appreciated.
- Airplay 2 support.

Great Speak but Horrible App

I’m impressed by the wonderful sound this little speak reproduces, especially compared to the two (2) Sound Touch systems I’ve own for a couple of years.

The iOS App for the Bose Home Speaker 500 is horrible, especially compared to the Sound Touch App!

I cannot find the Internet international stations I have as preset stations on my Sound Touch 30. I cannot turn off the system either from the App or the device (no on and off physical button)!

I was using the Bluetooth fiction to play music from my iPhone X. The songs kept breaking up, the volume varying on its own, and I got annoyed so I stopped using the 500.

I found the “equalizer” (for the bass and treble) during the initial set up (I fumbled through it), but could no longer find it.

Alexa was easy to set up — but Echo Show is far superior for Alexa usage. Clearly, the sound of Bose 500 beats even the new Echo Show 2.0 by miles.

However, I’m returning this Bose 500; the App is not ready for prime time. And maybe the Bluetooth receiver and chip are defective on the unit I bought.

Bose should try to incorporate the best features of the Sound Touch App into the app for the Bose Home Speaker 500, which looks gorgeous and produces wonderful sounds, but . . . .

App works fine but time zone is stuck.

The app and the Bose 500 speaker work great. However, we can’t change the time zone. We bought it on the west coast and used then brought it home with us to the east coast and there appears to be no way to change the time zone on it. We were able to change the networks no problem using the online help, but time zone seems to be an issue. The forums seem to have a lot of people with the same issue. Alexa works great too but it seems like a pretty simple bug to fix since I can change 12 or 25 hour time display.

Little bugs like this make for an aggravating experience on an otherwise great product.
