Introducing Bose AR

AN AUDIO-FIRST APPROACH TO AUGMENTED REALITY

Bose AR logo

Our world is filled with so many wonderful things to hear and to see. But we miss so much because we spend so much time looking down, staring at screens. We know we're better than this. But how can we get what we want from our devices — without constantly looking at them?

Bose AR is a first-of-its-kind audio augmented reality platform that makes astonishing new audio experiences possible by helping you stay connected to your digital world and stay engaged in the physical world at the same time.

The first Bose AR-enabled products and Bose AR-enhanced apps are now available. We invite you to try Bose AR for yourself, or join the growing list of partners helping us to help everyone experience life heads up, hands free, and ears amazed.

Bose AR-enhanced apps

Combining the power of wearable audio products, mobile devices, and integrated apps, Bose AR unlocks the potential to experience fundamentally new ways to travel, exercise, learn, play, and more by augmenting your world with content for your ears instead of your eyes. For iPhone and iPad users with a Bose AR-enabled product, the first step is to open the Bose Connect app (version 8.0 or later is required) and confirm your product’s firmware is up to date. Then you’ll have access to a showcase of Bose AR-enhanced apps with links to download them. iPhone and iPad apps are available now. Android apps are in development. Bose AR availability and functionality varies.

PRODUCTS

Bose AR-enabled products

Bose AR-enabled products have motion sensors embedded inside that can detect your head orientation and body movement while you wear them. Bose AR-enhanced apps can then use this information along with location data from your mobile device to offer you audio content tailored to where you are and what you’re doing. Bose AR availability and functionality varies.
