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 Headphones. 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.
You get voice control from Alexa built in, which puts millions of songs, Internet Radio, playlists, and more at the tip of your tongue. And when the music’s playing loud, the Bose Home Speaker 500 will still hear you. Just under the top is a custom-designed eight-microphone array for superior voice pickup. But control doesn’t stop at just voice — tap the top controls to play, pause, or skip tracks, or manage it all from the Bose Music app.
Integrated Music Services
When it comes to what you want to hear, there are plenty of options, too. Access integrated music services like Spotify and Amazon Music at the touch of a button. You can set up to six different presets for playlists, Internet Radio stations, and more. Or, connect over Bluetooth to play anything from your phone or tablet. And with Alexa, music is just the beginning. You have access to things like weather reports and news headlines. If you want to hear something, just ask. Plus, future software updates will add new features — like Apple AirPlay 2.
It looks as good as it sounds, with a seamless anodized aluminum body that gives the speaker a refined finish. The Bose Home Speaker 500 is part of a new Bose family of smart speakers and soundbars designed to grow with you, so you can enjoy more music in more rooms.
Bose Music App
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.
