Overview

Overview

Details mean everything. So we compromised on nothing.

Beauty's in the eye—and ear—of the beholder. So we designed the Lifestyle 650 home entertainment system to be beautiful in every way. Acoustics. Aesthetics. Craftsmanship. Simplicity. For your movies and music, it's the most uncompromising 5-speaker home cinema system we've ever made.

Spotlight on speakers

We have a long history of creating big sound from small packages. With OmniJewel satellite speakers—even smaller than our Jewel Cube speakers, which are also available for this system—we're rewriting that history with a new chapter on elegance. Each of these tiny speakers features a carefully milled aluminium housing with two acoustic enclosures for dual-opposing drivers. This is the key to creating our first omnidirectional speaker for true 360-degree sound and a more spacious home cinema experience. It took a team of 30 people to perfect every last detail, ensuring the acoustics would work with the aesthetics. And the rear speakers? Wireless.

The centre channel matches the sleekness of your TV and offers greater performance than previous centre channel speakers. It's packed with five precision speakers and coated in an anodised aluminium finish.

Thunderous bass. Wireless connectivity.

Of course you want that resounding bass performance for movies and music. But you don't want a monstrous piece of equipment to enable it. With its premium glass-top finish, our wireless Acoustimass® module delivers on sound and style. A powerful driver and QuietPort™ technology combine for best-in-class performance for its size.

Statements in elegance, continued…

The polished glass curvature of the console has a singular style you can't ignore. But it's more than just good looks. The console houses all of your technological needs: Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi® connectivity for wireless music streaming, 4K video compatibility, 6 HDMI™ inputs and more. And it's all controlled with a universal remote.

 

Same system, different speakers.
Which is right for you?

 

LIFESTYLE 650 SYSTEM

OMNIJEWEL SPEAKERS

 

These are the most spacious satellite speakers we've ever produced. With 360-degree output, these speakers work with the centre channel (about 53" long) to provide an incomparable, immersive experience. They are made from a single piece of extruded aluminium and blend seamlessly in your room.

 

 

LIFESTYLE 600 SYSTEM

JEWEL CUBE SPEAKERS

 

These speakers feature Direct/Reflecting technology, with precisely angled transducers inside each speaker. The output is stunning — what you'd expect from speakers many times their size. They are complemented by a Jewel Cube centre channel that is much smaller (about 15 cm long) than the OmniJewel centre channel."

 

Less effort, more music

With the Lifestyle 650 system, we put a lot of thought into taking the thinking out. Of course, there's the premium home cinema performance that you'll love for movies, TV and sports. But when it comes to enjoying your music, you can listen whichever way you want, without worrying about which technology is best. This system features SoundTouch®, which lets you play music through your Wi-Fi® network for instant in-home listening. Or listen directly from a phone or tablet using a Bluetooth® connection.

 

Fast, simple control of all your music

Experience your favourite music from your SoundTouch® speaker with the SoundTouch® app. SoundTouch® lets you take total control of your listening experience. Browse popular music services such as Spotify® and Deezer, Internet radio or your stored music library. Easily personalise presets for one-touch access to the music you love, and control one or many SoundTouch® speakers around your home.

 

Engineered to keep it simple

Unify technology walks you through setup with guided onscreen messages, and ADAPTiQ audio calibration fine tunes the sound specifically to your room and the things in it. So when you hear it, you hear it at its absolute best. The rear speakers and bass module even connect wirelessly for easier placement.

Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Set up was a breeze Upon receiving this I was definitely excited because I and my family are music and action movie fanatics,also I am very familiar with the quality Bose has to offer as I own Bose head phones and have Bose speakers in my vehicle. To start I have owned several speaker receiver components Kenwood and Pioneer and know the headache of having to run speaker wire and fine tune base and treble right, center , left speakers to your liking .What I absolutely love is that the set up of system is not as complicated as I thought that it would be(actually very easy!), however I am still amazed at the amount of wiring that is still involved with such a sophisticated piece of equipment this day in age ,I digress this minor pain more than makes up for the impeccable sound quality that is and is only BOSE! We started off with watching war movie U-571 if you are familiar with it you know why we wanted to watch it first after setting up this system the ballistic blasts from torpedoes , thuds and ,creaks from a submarine as it depressurizes will have you shaking in your seat (it was literally like being in the belly of that submarine. Bose's bass module will rock you to your core.It gave us a new appreciation of this movie and the Bose brand. JUST AMAZING!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning surround sound What a great system the Bose Lifestyle 650 is. Normally when I read a comment like that I expect it to have been written by the company, or a sales rep for the company, or someone otherwise induced to make favourable comments. However, I am none of these. I have been asked to make my own comments as a normal Bose customer. I expected great sound quality from the Bose Lifestyle 650 and I wasn’t disappointed. The depth of sound was brilliant. The best experience was from watching films or concerts. The sound of a storm outside when two people were talking indoors was stunning. Watching concerts made you feel you were there in the audience, with the surround sound making a real difference. I did hope that the volume adjustments between the speakers would have been a bit better. You can adjust all of the speakers, but due to the size of our room, the rear speakers had to be repositioned to allow for finer adjustments. The design is really sleek and smart enough to display n any room. The one caveat I would add is that the instructions tell you to allow an hour to set everything up. If you are a Bose employee with experience of installing the Lifestyle system you might be able to manage it in an hour, however, it took me a lot longer to install all of the speakers, although this also included changing the connections from the set-top box and DVD player to the Lifestyle system. The system was very easy to use with set-up instructions displayed on the television screen and adjustments made via the remote control screen. As I said before, what a great system the Bose Lifestyle 650 is. I am really happy with the results and I would recommend it to anyone wanting great sound production.

How does the Unify® intelligent integration system work?

Once a video connection is made between the Lifestyle® control console and your TV, the Unify® system walks you through initial system setup, step by step.
