The Bose brand is synonymous with noise-cancelling headphones, but the US company has been delivering home sound systems since the 1960s bit got left behind when it came to early networked speakers.

The Bose Home Speaker 300 delivers room-rocking bass and 360° sound in a space-saving size. With the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built in, enjoy millions of songs, playlists, and more with just your voice. And you have the freedom to control the music your way — using your voice, with a tap on the top controls, or the Bose Music app.

A more up-to-date option is the no-frills $269 Bose SoundLink Revolve+ II, a portable Bluetooth device that can sit in an optional charging cradle, making it a good best-of-both-worlds options.
