Video: Bose Home Speaker 300 In Price Decline: Small WiFi Speaker Amazingly Cheap
2023 Author: Sheila Hailey | [email protected]. Last modified: 2023-11-26 15:18
In July 2019, we saw the Bose Home Speaker 300 for the first time at a dealer - at a recommended retail price of 279 euros. Just a few months later, the compact WiFi speaker fell below the 200 euro mark, as this graphic by Idealo shows:
This is a relatively rapid price decline, the cause of which can probably be found in several places. On the one hand, there was the initially somewhat high manufacturer price (only 279 euros, meanwhile “corrected” to 229 euros), which was higher than that of direct competitors (eg Sonos One). On the other hand, Bose itself also has WLAN speakers from the older "SoundTouch" series in its range, such as the SoundTouch 10, which can occasionally be obtained for 140 euros. However, we would not assume bad sales figures, because customer satisfaction at Bose in general and at Home Speaker 300 in particular is good.
It is not yet clear whether the price for the Bose Home Speaker 300 will drop further. But one can say with certainty that it is unlikely to exceed the 230-euro threshold across the board.

The Bose Home Speaker 300 is part of a multiroom system, which also includes the Home Speaker 500 with display we tested or the Soundbar 700 (approx. 650 euros). As a loner, the Home Speaker 300 sounds like every small kitchen radio and is comparable to the Sonos One (approx. 200 euros) or the Yamaha Musiccast 20 (approx. 180 euros). The loudspeaker is controlled by app or voice, a battery is not installed.
The equipment is impressive: The Bose Home Speaker 300 masters Apple Airplay 2, Bluetooth, has 6 preset buttons for favorite programs at the top and listens to the word with microphones if desired (Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant). There is even a 3.5 mm jack socket. Its disadvantages: no room measurement (such as Sonos TruePlay), no stereo pairing with another HomeSpeaker 300 possible, not compatible with the Bose SoundTouch family, no Ethernet socket.
A purchase is recommended for everyone who appreciates rich sound from a compact housing. However, expansion (in so-called synchronized multiroom groups) can only be carried out within the Bose “smart home family”. That's the way it is with multiroom systems - you have to choose a brand.
