EXPLORE THE FEATURES
Sounds good, anywhere
ADAPTiQ audio room calibration will optimise its acoustic performance for the unique characteristics of your room—giving you the best possible listening experience.
Clear voice pickup
A custom-designed eight-microphone array delivers superior voice pickup, so the soundbar will 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.
Elegant light bar
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 Smart Soundbar 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 Google Assistant and Alexa built right into the Bose Smart 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. And with Alexa only, you can even make or take calls to Bose smart products, Amazon Echo products and anyone in your contacts list. Hands-free, phone-free and free of charge.**
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 just keeps getting better. Future software updates will unlock new features.
*Voice services (Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant) may vary and may not be available in all languages and countries.
**Call feature is only available with Alexa. To call products, both parties must set up this feature and must be on Wi-Fi.
Looks as good as it sounds
Featuring a tempered glass top, wraparound metal grille, clean lines and an exquisite finish, the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 is just as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside.

How is the Bose Smart 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’s sound and helps with dialogue intelligibility. The Solo 5 system does not include any built-in virtual assistant functionality. The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 does that and much more—including built-in voice control from 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 sound coming from places where there are no physical speakers. The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 also includes ADAPTiQ audio calibration technology, which adjusts the sound of the soundbar to best fit your room, regardless of the shape or furnishings. So it always sounds its best.
Can the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 be mounted to the wall?
Yes. The optional, new Bose Soundbar Wall Bracket lets you mount the soundbar to the wall.
How do I run the ADAPTiQ audio calibration system with the Bose Smart 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 Smart Soundbar 700?
Press and hold the Bluetooth source button on the remote for several seconds (the light will flash on the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 remote). Ensure that your mobile device is in pairing mode and select the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 from the list. You can also pair your mobile device to the soundbar using the Bose Music app.
Does the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 have NFC technology for Bluetooth pairing?
What type of remote is included with the Bose Smart Soundbar 700?
The Bose Smart 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 Smart Soundbar 700 connect to my TV?
The simplest way to connect the Bose Smart 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 Smart Soundbar 700 to the TV using the optical cable (supplied with the Bose Smart Soundbar 700).
How do I control other devices with the Bose Smart 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, games 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 a single touch of a button. However, not all devices respond to these commands. In particular, cable and satellite boxes may not respond to HDMI commands. The customer can still control devices that do not respond to HDMI commands by programming the Bose Soundbar Universal Remote (included with the Bose Smart Soundbar 700).
Does the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 have HDMI-eARC capability?
What placement guidelines should be considered to ensure optimal audio performance from the Bose Smart Soundbar 700?
The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 uses the reflective surfaces of the room to deliver a spacious home cinema experience. To ensure optimal audio performance, the soundbar should be placed equidistant from each side wall and directly in the front and centre 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 soundstage.
Can source devices, such as a cable box, iPod, gaming system, etc., be connected directly to the Bose Smart 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 make or take calls from the Bose Smart Soundbar 700?
Yes. Using Alexa only, you can directly call other Bose smart products, Amazon Echo products and anyone in your contacts list. Simply say, “Alexa, call Mum”, to initiate a call. Or say “Alexa, answer”, to accept an incoming call. You do not need your phone to make or take a call, and it’s free of charge. However, when calling products, both parties are required to have this feature set up in order to use it, and must be on Wi-Fi.
Currently, Amazon Alexa works with QC35 headphones II,QC35 II Gaming Headset, Headphones 700, Home Speaker 300, Smart Speaker 500, Portable Smart Speaker, Smart Soundbar 300, Soundbar 500 and Smart Soundbar 700.
Can I use my streaming-music presets from the Bose Music app with the Bose Smart Soundbar 700?
Yes. The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 uses presets via the Bose Music app and the remote control.
What music services can I access from the Bose Smart Soundbar 700?
The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 can play music directly over Wi-Fi from Spotify, Pandora®, TuneIn, iHeartRadio™, Amazon Music, SiriusXM and Deezer. Alexa access on the Bose Smart 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. Other services may be accessed by playing them from a device using a Bluetooth connection. Music and voice services may vary.
What can I do with my voice assistant on the Bose Smart Soundbar 700?
It is not possible to provide a comprehensive list of supported features, because 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.
Can you mix and match the wireless bass modules and soundbars?
Yes. The Bose Soundbar 500, Bose Smart Soundbar 700, the Bose Smart Soundbar 300 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 Smart 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 Smart Soundbar 700 product lines were designed to complement the product in the same class (e.g. Bose Soundbar 500 products together and Bose Smart Soundbar 700 products together). So, the glass on the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 products looks more complementary together than if you mixed one Bose Soundbar 500 product with a Bose Smart Soundbar 700 product.
The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 is very good for music. It has a well-balanced sound profile that makes it suitable for listening to a wide variety of music genres. However, it lacks some low-bass, but you can also get a separate subwoofer, which should help with bass performance.
The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 is a slightly better soundbar than the Sonos Arc. The Sonos isn't as well-built, but it supports Atmos, which is great for a more immersive listening experience. However, the Bose has a more neutral sound profile, and it allows for Bluetooth playback. Both setups can be upgraded easily.
The Samsung HW-Q90R is a better soundbar system than the Bose Smart Soundbar 700, although the Bose can be upgraded easily into the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 with Speakers + Bass Module. The Samsung gets louder and supports Atmos.
Does Bose Soundbar 700 have Dolby Atmos? No, the Bose Soundbar 700 does not have Atmos. Atmos is in the top tier of audio technologies for distinctly accurate audio portrayals. However, the 700 makes do with just DTS and Digital.
The Samsung HW-Q80R is a better soundbar than the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 by itself, though the Bose can easily be upgraded into the Bose Smart Soundbar 700 with Speakers + Bass Module. The Samsung comes with a dedicated sub and has a more extended bass, as well as a louder max volume.
Our Verdict. The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 is a bit better than the Bose Smart Soundbar 700. The 900 has a better surrounds performance, and unlike the 700, it supports Dolby Atmos content.
The Samsung HW-Q90R is a better soundbar than the Sonos Arc. The Samsung is a 7.1. 4 setup with a more neutral sound profile and overall better performance at max volume. It also has a better surrounds performance, and it comes with a graphic EQ and presets to customize its sound.
Sonos has a more streamlined approach to its home speakers, so they're your best bet if you want a seamless listening experience. However, Bose offers plenty of other products in addition to soundbars and home speakers, so Bose gives you more options. Both brands deliver when it comes to audio quality.
Yes. The Bose Soundbar 700 is a fantastic one-speaker solution for simple yet exhilarating home theater sound. With optional subwoofer and surround speaker modules, it can grow with your needs as long as those needs don't include Dolby Atmos.
Bose makes well-built and neutral-sounding soundbars. They tend to be very straightforward, and some of their setups are easily upgradable. However, due to their simple design, they don't have as many sound enhancement features as other brands and lack HDMI In ports.
It's a MUST if you have a Bose Soundbar 700. It's worth the money. That's all. Amazing sound when paired with the soundbar 900.
The Bose Smart Soundbar 700 is a better soundbar than the Bose Smart Soundbar 300. The 700 feels better built, it supports eARC, and it has room correction as well as EQ presets. It can also get louder with fewer compression artifacts present at max volume, and it has a better surround performance.
The surround sound from the speakers are amazing and adds realism and a theatre like feel when watching movies on my Samsung LED TV. You can't go wrong with Bose, the sound is amazing and I am so glad I was able to purchase this from Best Buy!
