EXPLORE THE FEATURES
Sounds good, anywhere
ADAPTiQ audio room calibration will optimize its acoustic performance for the unique characteristics of your room — giving you the best possible listening experience.
Clear voice pickup
A custom-mic array delivers superior voice pickup, so the soundbar will still hear you even when the music is playing loud.
The soundbar’s recessed ports use a piece of resistant screen to reduce noise while getting more sound through a smaller opening. The result? Virtually distortion-free bass from a slim profile.
Not sure the soundbar heard you? An ingenious light bar helps indicate when your voice assistant is listening, thinking, or speaking.
Proprietary PhaseGuide technology works with tiny transducers to direct beams of multi-directional sound, delivering an unprecedented level of spaciousness. You’ll feel like sound is coming from places outside your soundbar.
Custom-designed, low-profile transducers provide superior clarity while maintaining an incredibly slim design.
QUIET FOR THEM.
LOUD AND CLEAR FOR YOU.
Want to watch TV but not disturb anyone else? Now, with Bose SimpleSync™ technology, you can group your Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 with a Bose Soundbar 500 or 700 for a personal TV listening experience. With independent volume controls, you can lower or mute your soundbar while keeping your headphones as loud as you like.
Built-in voice control
With the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa built right into the Bose Soundbar 700, you can control your music, get information, and manage your day without lifting a finger.* Just choose your voice assistant to start listening. But what good is voice control if the soundbar can’t hear you? Experience superior voice pickup from a custom-designed eight-microphone array that will still hear you no matter how loud your music is. And an ingenious light bar will help visually indicate when your voice assistant is listening, thinking, or speaking. Plus, it’s always getting better. Future software updates will unlock new features.
*Voice commands and controls may vary.
Looks as good as it sounds
Featuring a tempered glass top, wraparound metal grille, clean lines, and an exquisite finish, the Bose Soundbar 700 is just as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. Place the soundbar on the TV stand or mount it elegantly on the wall. Either way, it’s pleasing to the eye and ear. And the Bose Soundbar 700 Universal Remote is included with the purchase of your soundbar. It features six presets and lights up only the buttons you need in the moment, making it even easier to find your favorites.
One remote is all you need

How is the Bose Soundbar 700 soundbar different from the Bose Solo 5 TV sound system?
The Solo 5 system is designed primarily to provide better TV sound with an emphasis on dialogue. It greatly improves your TV sound and helps with dialogue intelligibility. The Solo 5 system does not include any built-in virtual assistant functionality. The Bose Soundbar 700 does that and much more — including built-in voice control from the Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. It provides a wide soundstage (a lot wider than the bar itself) and brings your music and movies to life by immersing you in the sound. You will hear sounds coming from places where there are no physical speakers. The Bose Soundbar 700 also includes ADAPTiQ audio calibration technology, which adjusts the sound of the soundbar to best fit your room, no matter the shape or furnishings. So it always sounds its best.
Can the Bose Soundbar 700 be mounted to the wall?
Yes. The optional, new Bose Soundbar Wall Bracket lets you mount the soundbar flush to the wall.
How do I run the ADAPTiQ audio calibration system with the Bose Soundbar 700?
ADAPTiQ is part of the overall setup process and driven through the Bose Music app. You will be prompted to run ADAPTiQ after you download the Bose Music app and start the setup process. If you skip running ADAPTiQ during the initial setup process — or change your room significantly after initially running ADAPTiQ — you can go back into the app and do it again. Initiate ADAPTiQ and follow the prompts in the app.
How do I connect a Bluetooth® device with the Bose Soundbar 700?
Press and hold the Bluetooth source button on the remote for several seconds (the light will flash on the Bose Soundbar 700 remote). Ensure your mobile device is in pairing mode and select the Bose Soundbar 700 from the list. You also can pair your mobile device to the soundbar using the Bose Music app.
Does the Bose Soundbar 700 have NFC technology for Bluetooth pairing?
What type of remote is included with the Bose Soundbar 700?
The Bose Soundbar 700 comes with a new backlit universal remote control. Line-of-sight is not required between the remote and the soundbar because it does not use IR. Instead, the remote uses Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate with the soundbar and then the soundbar blasts IR commands to control your other devices.
How does the Bose Soundbar 700 connect to my TV?
The simplest way to connect the Bose Soundbar 700 is via the supplied HDMI cable to your TV. If your TV has an HDMI-ARC or HDMI-eARC connection, you should use that connection. If your TV does not have an HDMI connection, then you should connect the Bose Soundbar 700 to the TV using the optical cable (supplied with the Bose Soundbar 700).
How do I control other devices with the Bose Soundbar 700 remote controls?
There are two ways to control other devices: HDMI-CEC and IR. The soundbar may be able to control connected devices (TV, Blu-ray Disc™ player, game console) over HDMI-CEC. This allows you to turn on other devices and operate them with the soundbar remote without any programming. It also enables one-touch access to entertainment, enabling you to turn on multiple devices and select an input with one button press. However, not all devices respond to these commands. In particular, cable and satellite boxes may not respond to HDMI commands. The customer still can control devices that do not respond to HDMI commands by programming the Bose Soundbar Universal Remote (included with the Bose Soundbar 700).
Does the Bose Soundbar 700 have HDMI-eARC capability?
What placement guidelines should be considered to ensure optimal audio performance from the Bose Soundbar 700?
The Bose Soundbar 700 uses the reflective surfaces of the room to deliver a spacious home theater experience. To ensure optimal audio performance, the soundbar should be placed equidistant from each side wall and directly in the front-center of the TV. No objects should be placed in front of the soundbar, nor should it be placed recessed inside a cabinet, as this would result in a limited sound stage.
Can source devices, such as a cable box, iPod, gaming system, etc., be connected directly to the Bose Soundbar 700?
No. All sources must be connected to the TV and then a single connection (via the HDMI or optical cable) must be made from the TV to the soundbar.
Can I use my streaming music presets from the Bose Music app with the Bose Soundbar 700?
Yes. The Bose Soundbar 700 uses presets via the Bose Music app and the remote control.
What music services can I access from the Bose Soundbar 700?
The Bose Soundbar 700 can play music directly over Wi-Fi from Spotify, Pandora®, TuneIn, iHeartRadio™, Amazon Music, SiriusXM, and Deezer. Alexa access on the Bose Soundbar 700 allows voice control of Spotify, Pandora®, TuneIn, iHeartRadio™, Amazon Music, SiriusXM, Deezer, and Audible. Apple AirPlay 2 compatibility allows access to Apple Music, and other services may be accessed by playing from a device using a Bluetooth connection. Music and voice services may vary.
What can I do with my voice assistant on the Bose Soundbar 700?
It is not possible to provide a comprehensive list of supported features, because the Google Assistant and Alexa are constantly evolving — but the integration of voice control with the new Bose family of smart products supports the vast majority of functionality, including music playback, control of smart home devices, setting timers and alarms, and general information requests. Give it a try, just say “Hey Google”, or “Alexa” and ask a question.
What Google Assistant features are not supported?
The following features are not supported at this time, but will become available in future automatic software updates:
News playback and Routines with news content included.
Sleep sounds and Routines with sleep sounds included.
Chromecast capabilities, but Google Assistant voice control of Chromecast-enabled TVs is supported.
Can you mix and match the wireless bass modules and soundbars?
Yes. The Bose Soundbar 500 and Bose Soundbar 700 and the Bose Bass Module 500 and Bose Bass Module 700 all use the same wireless protocols and can be mixed and matched (e.g., a Bose Soundbar 700 wirelessly paired with a Bose Bass Module 500 or a Bose Soundbar 500 with a Bose Bass Module 700). However, the design language and materials of the Bose Soundbar 500 and the Bose Soundbar 700 product lines were designed to complement the product in the same class (e.g., Bose Soundbar 500 products together and Bose Soundbar 700 products together). So, the glass on the Bose Soundbar 700 products looks more complementary together than if you mixed one Bose Soundbar 500 product with a Bose Soundbar 700 product.
