Coziest speaker ever with sublime sound

  • great sound
  • small
  • short power cord

What a great sound comes from this small speaker, really sublime. Before I had her working I had to reset her (yes it's a ZE). Since there was no manual, it was a puzzle for a while, but long live the internet. After the reset it went almost by itself. The Bose Music app had trouble finding the speaker, but after some insistence it succeeded. The only music services she draws from are Spotify and TuneIn. She can't do anything with Deezer. It is a pity that a premium account on Spotify is required, this should be possible. She answers most questions or comments, which is quite comical sometimes. When I say: "Hey Google, good morning", I get a very friendly answer back, even the travel time and traffic situation to work comes after it, the weather conditions (home and work), any agenda items... a bit of a personal assistant who Google . I still have a lot to discover, but so far I'm very happy with it. It's just a shame that she isn't cordless, now you need an extension cord if you want to take her outside to enjoy your favorite music (or a good conversation, because she can do that too).

no stereo playback

  • cannot play stereo sound

Despite what is stated on the website, it is not possible to have two speakers reproduce stereo sound, very disappointing from both Bose and Coolblue.

Doubt

  • Sound
  • design
  • No battery

After having played with this speaker daily for 2 weeks, I noticed that it gives a super sound, the beautiful compact size also fits perfectly with my interior. After a long puzzling, I finally installed the wifi on it. Sometimes it works very well but every now and then the speaker disconnects from the app, restarting with the app and connecting the speaker is the solution, the reason is unknown to me because both the phone and speaker fall within my WiFi signal, Bluetooth works good by the way, but then I have that every message and other sound is also about the speaker, which is of course not always the intention. Google assistant also works properly and even with the Dutch language, but sometimes the music stops and it indicates that it can't help me even though I didn't say anything, I even thought the song contained sound to control the assistant , but after dialing the number again it didn't work. In my eyes it is a beautiful speaker with a beautiful sound, but with the necessary "teething problems". Maybe in the next update they will disappear. For me it is not recommended yet and I am still unsure about what I will do with it

Beautiful device for both the eye and the ear!

  • beautiful sound
  • Quick to activate
  • limited WiFi range

Nice extension to my Bose soundbar. Both devices can play together or separately. The sound is very good. And after some research how the settings work, the device can be operated quickly. The presets are also easy, so you can quickly play music you've previously chosen when you don't have time for it.
