About audio/video synchronization

Recently, we’ve heard from some customers who are experiencing audio synchronization delays while watching videos. We know truly wireless headphones are subject to some latency between audio and video, but the feedback we received indicated that the product wasn’t performing how we expected.

A SoundSport Free software update is now available to improve audio/video synchronization issues in most used cases. You can download the new software wirelessly through the Bose Connect app or by visiting on your computer. If you own a Bluetooth device that fully supports Audio Video Distribution Transport Protocol (AVDTP), version 1.3 or later, you will benefit by this update. We have confirmed Apple iPhones and iPads use this protocol and we will continue to evaluate other popular Bluetooth devices. Audio/video synchronization may also vary depending on the mobile app being viewed (e.g. Netflix, YouTube). We encourage you to use the most recent software for your mobile apps, Bluetooth devices and Bose headphones.

If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you visit and contact us through your region, or follow us on Twitter @BoseService.
