The sound bar is part of Bose’s Smart Home wireless music system, which means you can add more stuff to it. For example, if you are going for like a surround sound system, you can add Bose wireless surround speakers. There’s two to choose from, the Bose Surrounds and these Surround Speakers 700 you see here. You can also add Bose’s Bass Module 700 if you want an even bigger, even fuller, harder-hitting sound.
We actually hooked this speaker up in our large training room along with a bunch of other sound bars. We’re sort of doing some testing, just to hear a bunch of different bars in our training room, and as small as this speaker is it really was impressive and sounded, really was one of the best among the five different sound bars that we tested, especially in this large room. It really did a nice job of filling it with sound.
We also ran the Bose AdaptIQ system, which means you plug in a calibration microphone, it’s actually a headset you wear on your head right there in your listening positions to make sure that the sound sounds the best right there where your ears are picking up the sound. It plays sounds out of the speakers and sort of measures the acoustics of your room. As sounds bounce off all of your walls and windows and doors, it picks those reflections up and eliminates them so what you’re left with is perfect surround sound.
The Bose Soundbar 700 is a fantastic music solution, not just a good sound bar for your TV. You can of course get music into it using Bluetooth from any of your smartphones, but you should really get it connected to your Wi-Fi network so that you can use Airplay 2 if you have an iPhone, and you should download the Bose app so that you can have total control of the sound bar, and through the Bose app you can control all the different music streaming services like Spotify and Pandora.
We really liked just how great it sounded for music, a nice, good two-channel stereo image and a full, rich sound, thanks to the Bass Module 700. To connect the Bose Soundbar 700 to your TV, you basically have two options. You can run an HDMI cable from your TV’s Audio Return Channel HDMI connection to the one HDMI input on the back of this sound bar, or you can run an optical digital cable from your TV to the sound bar. Either way works.
Why pick Bose Soundbar 700 on Black Friday?
As far as controlling the sound bar goes, Bose actually includes a pretty snazzy remote control and they call it “contextual” because when you are, say, listening to music it only lights up the buttons you would need for music, and when you’re watching TV it lights up different buttons that you would want to control the sound from TV and movies and things like that.
It’s nice, well-built, feels really good in your hands sort of remote control, really impressed with the capabilities and look & feel of the Bose remote. So this is the Bose Soundbar 700, Bass Module 700, and these Surround Speakers 700 altogether makes for a really nice home theater system. We were really impressed, we think you will be, too. If you have any questions about this stuff, go ahead and throw them in the comments, we’ll try to answer them
