Immersion. Like you’ve never felt.
Sound is powerful. It can touch you in ways pictures can’t. Think about it. You don’t get pulled into a movie watching it on mute. It’s the sound that draws you in. The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 delivers on that promise. With six full-range transducers, including two new custom-engineered up firing dipole speakers, a center tweeter, and speaker arrays connected to Bose PhaseGuide technology, the Bose Smart Soundbar 900 with Dolby Atmos® delivers an immersive experience for all your content.
Even content not encoded with Dolby Atmos sound immersive.
Dolby Atmos is awesome for feeling fully immersed in your movies because it adds an extra dimension of height to the sound experience. But what about the stuff you like to watch that isn’t encoded in Dolby Atmos? Not a problem. Bose proprietary TrueSpace™ spatial processing intelligently analyzes signals other than Dolby Atmos, like stereo or 5.1, and mixes them to create an immersive 7-channel sound experience. The result? Enveloping sound no matter what you watch.
Looks as beautiful as it sounds.
Material quality. Construction. Finishes. Controls. Every detail was obsessed over to produce a soundbar that’s every bit as astonishing as its sound.
At your command.
With Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, you can control all your entertainment, manage your day and get information — using just your voice. The noise-rejecting microphones of the Smart Soundbar 900 work together to listen in every direction for your command, even when the music’s playing loudly. And for times when you want privacy, you can disable the microphones anytime with the mic-off button.
Say it. Watch it.
Exclusive Bose Voice4Video™ technology expands your Alexa voice capabilities like no other soundbar can. In addition to controlling your Bose smart soundbar, you can control your TV and cable or satellite box with just your voice. No remote. No buttons. No nothing. Turn on your TV and jump to your favorite station all with one simple ask of Alexa. Even if your TV was on a different input, it’ll automatically switch over to the right one for you. It’s a quick way to watch what you love.
Music. Any way you want it.
When it comes to what you want to hear, you have so many options. With Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, Apple AirPlay 2, Spotify® Connect, and Chromecast, you can wirelessly stream whatever you want, however you want. Browse your favorite music services or play something from YouTube. If you can get it on your device, you can hear it through the Bose Smart Soundbar 900.
"Alexa, call mom."
Using Alexa only, you can directly call Bose smart products, Amazon Echo products, and anyone in your contacts list. Simply say, "Alexa, call Mom," 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 Bose smart products and this feature set up and be on Wi-Fi® in order to use.
Want to kick it up a notch? Add more.
The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 sounds immersive all on its own. However, you can add to the experience whenever you’re ready. Add wireless bass modules, surround speakers, or both to create a full home theater system.
Private — or party — listening.
Bose SimpleSync™ allows you to pair your Bose Smart Soundbar 900 with compatible Bose products. Want to watch TV but not disturb anyone else? Pair your soundbar with select Bose headphones for a personal TV listening experience. Want to add even more sound to the experience? Pair your soundbar with a select Bose Bluetooth speaker.
More music. In more rooms.
Group your Bose Smart Soundbar 900 with any other Bose smart speakers over Wi-Fi for a seamless audio experience throughout your home. Listen to different songs in different rooms or one song in every room at the same time. Meanwhile, any of your friends or family can connect their mobile device to your Bose smart soundbar via Bluetooth and play their favorite music, too.
Easy to set up.
The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 uses a single connection to your TV. Choose either the HDMI™ eARC connection or the optical audio connection (both cables provided). Simply connect the soundbar to your TV, hook it up to power, and turn it on. Then, download the Bose Music app to your mobile device to complete the setup.
Easy to use.
With the Bose Music app, you can easily set up your soundbar, choose your voice assistant, set up Voice4Video™, add software updates for the latest features, and browse through all your music in one place, seamlessly jumping between stations, playlists, and services without ever leaving the app. Plus, it’s another simple way to control the Bose Smart Soundbar 900 or group together your compatible smart home products. Setting up presets with the app is easy, so the music you love is just one touch away.

Customer Reviews for Bose Smart Soundbar 900 Dolby Atmos with Alexa and Google Assistant Voice Control
Really happy with the sound we have with this soundbar. The room in the basement is still under construction so the cube speakers for surround are not set up yet. But this soundbar does a great job even without them.
Bought the 900 soundbar when it was on sale in December. I was debating between getting a Samsung 990B or Bose 900 with bass and surrounds. Since, it was on discount, I decided to first try the 900 soundbar alone. It must say I was really disappointed as I did not expect such mediocre performance from Bose. You have to turn the sound up to 50-60 before you start to hear details in dolby atmos sound. I already have a samsung Q950A and it outperforms Bose in every aspect esp. with Atmos performance. I will give it a few mode days and try on different sound modes, but I may be returning it and buying a Samsung 990C or Nakamichi Dragon.
I've been a lifelong Bose user with many devices in my home. The 900 sound bar also is a great speaker and we're very happy. My only complaint is that the on line "Instructions" were not very clear. Simple stuff like is the device on or off? Also the multiple sound and lights indicating status are not intuitive. I can probably can sort it out but why do I have to? Your design people think it's easy. Problem is I have many devices that are "easy" but I don't have time or patience to deep dive them all.
The soundbar sounds great but the remote is a bit difficult to use, especially in a darkened room. We also had to use the optical cord as hooking up with the HDMI cord didn't work. An illuminated remote, like my TV remote would be preferred.
Bought month ago and it sounded good. Then I went through the settings with a Bose customer service rep and before I knew it we had it dialed in perfectly. Could use a better bose directions on settings on the app and what they all mean and do. After the tech explained what the center channel and height channel were I was set. also helped me get the Dolby atmos working as my tv had a setting that was fighting it from turning on
Crystal clear sound, adaptiq adjusts the sound specifically to your room. I would highly recommend getting the bass module as well. I am getting the surround sound 700 as well to pair. This is theatre sound. Absolutely amazing system. Super easy set up through the app. 5 stars as wxpected from Bose.
While researching soundbars I received mail from Bose informing me of the opportunity to obtain a refurbished model for hundreds less than new. Having purchased several Bose products previously it was an easy decision to seal the deal. I am very pleased with my purchase.
I upgraded my old Bose Lifestyle AV18 home theater system to the 900 sound bar with some 700 speakers and a 700 bass module. The sound is incredible! It actually sounds better than the whole sound system I used to have. Very happy with my purchase!
Superb sound, very easy install compared to older version based on new app. Sleek design. Much better bass. Occasionally the ARC connection fails, power off and power on solves that issue..If needed the support team is responsive and professional, i am impressed as many high end companies fail miserably in this area, my hats off to Bose for after market support.
I am happy with my purchase. I do think you need to make the set up instructions more clear. In the instructions you picture the wrong remote control on the diagram. I had to go to YouTube to figure it out. The connections to the satellite speakers need to be more clear.
Even though I haven't experienced what I bought the system for (height channel fulfillment). When I play these speakers without the rear speakers it's a beast of a product stand alone.. can't wait to find time to play with it some more
The bass 700 that completes the theater set with this sound bar has a popping, cracking sound defect. It is very common and only solution is to connect the base to the soundbar using wires. Having purchasing this unit for wireless use, this is very frustrating. Do little research before purchasing this!
The only way I can connect 300 speaker with sound bar 900 is to group them together but I got sound latency with my Sony Bravia 75 inch TV. Tried to make adjustment on Tv audio Configu but it won't work!!
System was initially painless to set up. Instructions were clear and easy to follow. However, when we moved the rear speakers to their permanent location, we were unable to get the arc to talk to our soundbar. Portions of the installation instructions were simply missing. We solved the issues by unplugging everything, tv, soundbar, woofer, surround sound speakers. Once everything was restarted, we got the appropriate instructions to reset up the system. Thereafter, everything has worked flawlessly. A warning that a reset would be necessary would have been helpful. We found it on You tube, not cool.
The system, once working properly, met our expectations, outstanding Bose quality. It is a bit pricey though, especially the two surround sound speakers. $600 is too much for what you get.
Paired the sound at 900 with the base module 700. Absolute great sound and great customer service per usual. I used to work for BOSE and still one of my favorite companies I've ever worked for. Love the company, product and service.
It is a nice unit but I cannot get it to work when it is plugged into HDMI eARC. I have a picture but no sound. I have printed the user manual so I hope that helps resolve the issue. It works with Optical cable only.
Bought around a month ago and I am really impressed so far. Typical Bose build quality and high end spec materials. Sleek and unobtrusive design coupled with technical knowhow. The sound is crisp, bass punches from the 700 series subwoofer and marries perfectly to the soundbar so that fil watching is immersive but not deafening and if used for music is spot on for all genres. This has replaced my Denon home system and blown it out of the water!
Purchase this about 3 weeks ago now. It does not have the sound as excepted for a Bose product. I am dis appointed that the bass from the bar is lacking and the highs are just ok. We replaced a old Bose system that we felt was outdated but we are no reconsidering our purchase.
Great sound quality, but some connectivity issues.
I purchased this unit three (3) weeks ago and the sound quality is second to none. It has room filling sound with excellent bass. This makes the fifth Bose soundbar or system that we have in our house. I have had issues with connectivity on two (2) occasions with this unit when paired with my Sony Bravia. I have had to unplug the Bose and reconnect to get it to work. Hopefully it doesn’t continue to happen.
Purchased this sounder since all my other Bose products sound great. This is a great looking sounder that fits perfectly in front of the tv, but I continue to struggle with the sound. At times I think it sounds too tinny despite having the bass set at +70 and the treble at -60. Added the Bass 500 but not much improvement. Also keep trying to synch the sound to the lip movement on the tv. So far not as good as I was hoping for. Keeping my fingers crossed
What a solid piece of art this is. From the style to performance this is really impressive. Since setup and having friends and family here this sound bar they themselves mentioned to my wife and I how much they enjoyed their experiences. Something magical happens here every time we use it.
Very dissapointed in the surround sound. I thought I would be getting surround sound when the TV is on. That's not the case. I only get surround sound when a movie is in dolby. This should be explained when I called bose for advice when purchasing my sound bar. The Alexa in my soundbar doesn't work right. This unit is harder to set up than what bose leads on. I thill don't know if it's set up correctly or not. If it wasn't for the sound while playing music, I would rate this unit 2 stars. I own many many bose products,and have always been a HUGE bose fan, but I was mislead by bose when I asked questions about this product. The Alexa only plays music from my Amazon music playlists. It will not play anything else. It stop playing after 5 seconds when I ask her to play a certain artist.. VERY VERY disapointed.
Was looking a powerful sound for awhile now to keep up with the rest of my audio and so far it does a decent job quality is there when it comes to precision sound and delivering it to different sides of the room at once best sound bar I've heard hence why I choose it over every other brand name out there and I heard alot before choosing this one. Over all good sound bar beautiful sound for it's size. Only thing I wish it had was more outputs so I can add my equipment to it.
