JBL Link 500 is rated out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Ears from Wow! Was a little worried when we got the Link 500 and there were virtually no instructions. I am no spring chicken (as can be noted by using that phrase), but was able to download the Google home app and have music playing within 5 minutes of opening the box! Yes, it is that easy. You can do everything from get the weather report to hear what you have scheduled on your calendar for the day, and much more! Was able to connect my TV via Bluetooth easily. I am truly amazed at the sound quality from something so small! Great bass, treble and mid range. Also, it is loud enough for any party with no distortion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jart from Link 500 - Superior sound, sufficient Google Home The JBL Link 500 combines JBL's exceptional sound engineering with Google's home management tools. At first glance, this thing is huge! See the pictures. It is 14 1/2" x 7 5/8" x 6 1/8" and weighs almost 8 pounds. The Link 500 produces full bodied sound with the high fidelity that is expected of JBL. The only fault of the Link is Google Home. Google Home functions well, but it takes some getting used to. There are plenty of commands to use, but there is not a book included listing them. So, you have to do your own homework to figure out how to make the most of your Link 500 with Google Home. The voice recognition is good, but you have to speak loudly and clearly to get its attention. Overall, since Google Home could be updated to have better commands and interaction, and the sound quality is excellent, I highly recommend the JBL Link 500.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Shika from Nice, but heavy I love JBL products! Nice, clean quality sound! The product does have a little weight to it, which I'm not a big fan of. I like light-weight products. It also doesn't have any built in grips for easy-movment. So it prevents me from being able to carry it easily. Have to hold it with both hands at all time! I also haven't been able to use the Google assistance as well as I'd like. Each time I wanted it to play a sound. It would say "playing sound now", but ends up saying "Unable to play, please try again". Maybe my internet wasn't strong enough, but I'm not sure. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by 68eight from Amazing sound Wow the sound is amazing, tight bass clear highs JBL definitely knows how to make speakers.I put this in my master bedroom originally but since it has such powerful sound decided to put it in my family room.This speaker is for big spaces.While this speaker is big it's still rather easy to move around if need too.This speaker doesn't have a battery so not portable needs to be plugged in.Now to Google features I downloaded app on my phone and connected wifi to speaker.Once connected my Google features turned on.I love walking in my house and saying hey Google put some music on.I don't got to touch my phone to check traffic,weather,time,etc....I just ask and it tells me. While I'm still in the learning stages of all the things it can do.I really know I'm love this thing.I'm a get the smaller version for my room so I can have access at all times and can play simultaneously on both speakers too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AndeS from Wow! Great sound and ease of use. I really enjoy the sound quality and convenience of the JBL 500. Although slightly larger than anticipated, it is worth the extra space. Already have recommended to several friends and relatives. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tomsters from Great sounding with amazing functionality! I just finished putting the JBL Link 500 through its paces and I have to say right away that I think it is an awesome device. To begin, it comes with minimal instructions and an A/C cord. The Link 500 plugs into the wall (there is no battery). You need to install the Google Home app on your smartphone and with this you can set up the JBL link 500 to get it ready to take commands and play music using the Google Assistant. If you have an android phone, you will already be familiar with the Google Assistant. Once you have completed the setup with Google Home, you can then start asking the JBL Link 500 questions or tell it to play music. You do this by saying "hey google" or "ok google" and then give a pause and then ask the question or give the command. There is a little light in the top front of the speaker that indicates if Google assistant is listening to you (after you say ok google). You can also turn the assistant on/off and lower volume etc with dedicated buttons on top of the Link 500. Right away I started asking it to play specific songs and it did very well even when I was in another room with a wall between us (but with open doors). It also came in handy in real time when a friend and I were trying to remember James Franco's name and we asked it a few questions from another room and it got the info for us which was very cool and an example of real time usefulness. It does not appear to be able to make phone calls though. Now as for the sound... I think it sounds great... very full, clear and rich sounding with deep resonant bass especially if you put it near a wall. The bass is very strong on this one (it has a radiator on the back). I found myself saying "ok google" ... please lower the volume - more than once or twice... because I have neighbors! It's pretty powerful. I think it would be perfect for a small party when you want some volume and bass happening. The Google assistant functionality is also very consistent and it even heard me when the volume was quite high (thank god!). I think it is an amazing product and I would highly recommend it to anyone. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kevin1015 from Great Sound This speaker has amazing sound quality. It sounds great and even when you turn the speaker full blast, the sound quality is still great. It gets pretty loud and works for parties or just chilling by yourself. The Google assistant is a great feature as well. It is very convenient and a nice additional feature. One of my friends has a Bose SoundTouch 30 wireless speaker and this speaker sounds just as good, plus it has a Google assistant. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Will you have to plug this into the wall or is it fully wireless?
In terms of its internet functionality it is totally wireless - it connects to the internet via WIFI which is wireless internet. As far as power source goes, it uses an A/C power cord for power (it has two prongs) and does not have a battery so you do need to plug it into an A/C outlet for it to work.
