Bose speakers are truly some of the greatest wireless Bluetooth speakers you can buy. One Fatherly editor has had a Bose that’s lasted 15-plus years without a single glitch. The new ones work with Alexa, of course, and immerse you in music. So it’s a happy day indeed when the Bose Home Speaker 500 goes on sale. And by sale, we mean serious sale. The kind of can’t-miss sale that used to only happen on Black Friday.

You want a badass-looking speaker, right? This Bose 500 speaker is it. It has a noise-rejecting app so your smart assistant never gets confused when you ask it to play Wilco. It’s got WiFi, Bluetooth, and Apple airplay 2 compatibility. You can stream tunes from Spotify or audio books from Audible. You control it by using your voice, tapping the top controls, or via the Bose music app.

But most of all, we dig the look of this thing. You get a seamless, anodized aluminum body that gives the speaker a refined finish so it looks like part of your decor, instead of a hulking brick.
