Bose SimpleSync is a new technology that allows you to pair a member of the Bose Home Speaker family with select Bose portable Bluetooth® speakers or Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. It’s really simple to use and it really comes in handy. Here’s how.
When binge-time and bedtime collide
Let’s say you and your significant other are obsessed with streaming the latest supernatural horror series and you’re halfway through a new episode. She’s falling asleep but she gives you permission to finish it on your own. How can you keep watching without keeping her awake? If you have a Bose Soundbar 500 or 700 hooked up to your TV, you can use SimpleSync to pair it with your Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. With separate volume levels, you can lower or mute your soundbar while your headphones stay loud and clear. Then you can finish the episode without disturbing her — and without spoiling the plot twists, either.
When it’s family movie time with the extended family
Bose SimpleSync is useful for the opposite reason, too — when there’s one person in the room who needs to hear the TV louder than everyone else, rather than quieter. For example, let’s say you have the grandparents over to watch the latest toys-come-to-life movie with their grandkids. Now, kids usually don’t mind turning up the TV really loud, but even they run for cover when Grandpa gets a hold of the remote. Luckily, loaning him your Bose Headphones 700 that you’ve used SimpleSync to pair with your Bose Soundbar 700 lets him hear things loud and clear while the rest of you can enjoy the movie without having to break out the earplugs.
When your dinner party morphs into an actual party
Let’s say you’re hosting a small party with friends, but then your friends’ friends arrive and it’s starting to feel kind of crowded. It would be really great if some of the people would move into the other room, but the music’s playing in this room, so how can you blame them? If you’re using a member of the Bose Home Speaker family and you’ve also got a Bose portable Bluetooth speaker, you can use SimpleSync to pair them and play the same song at the same time. Then you and your guests can spread out a little and keep the good times — and tunes — rolling. SimpleSync technology has a typical Bluetooth wireless range of 30 feet to stay connected.
The app that makes it all happen
The free Bose Music app does a lot of things, including help you set up SimpleSync. In just a few taps, you’ll be getting more out of your Bose speakers and headphones than ever before. To get started, make sure your compatible products are turned on and in pairing mode, and then open the app on your mobile device.
