Bose Smart Soundbar 300
The Bose Smart Soundbar 300 delivers spacious sound, clear dialogue and rich bass for your movies, music and games. The acoustic architecture is specially designed to keep this soundbar sleek and elegant. With built-in voice assistants and exclusive Bose Voice4Video™ technology, what typically takes several steps can now be done with one simple voice command. It’s fast, simple and easy enough for everyone to enjoy.
Four full-range drivers work together to separate and direct sounds left and right to deliver spacious, enveloping sound, while the centre tweeter clarifies speech for clear dialogue.
Pair your soundbar with selected Bose headphones for individual listening levels, or with selected Bose Bluetooth® speakers for dual-speaker music listening.
Clear voice pickup
A noise-rejecting mic system listens in every direction for your command—even if the soundbar’s playing loudly. Or you can disable listening at any time with the mic-off button.
At just over 5 cm tall, the Bose Smart Soundbar 300 is designed to sit low in front of your TV, for an unobstructed view of the screen. Wall mount available.
Precisely placed micro-screens virtually eliminate distortion for cleaner, smoother bass.
Exclusive Bose technology expands your Alexa voice capabilities, combining several steps into one. With one command, jump straight to your favourite TV shows—instantly.
Custom software automatically analyses what’s playing—movies, music, TV shows or games—and fine-tunes the sound to optimise your listening experience.
Built-in voice assistants
With Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, you can control your entertainment, manage your day, get information and make or take calls, hands-free. And with Alexa only, you can even make or take calls.
Exclusive Bose Voice4Video™ technology expands your Alexa voice capabilities like no other soundbar can. In addition to controlling your Bose Smart Soundbar 300, you can control your TV and your external cable or satellite box with just your voice. No remote. No buttons. No nothing. Turn on your TV and jump to your favourite channel all with one simple ask of Alexa. Even your tech-troubled guests or match-day partygoers will feel like experts. Just say, “Alexa, watch channel 23”, to start watching instantly. It’s the fastest way to watch what you love with who you love. And you can even make calls to or take calls from Bose smart products, Amazon Echo products and anyone in your contacts list. Hands-free, phone-free and free of charge.**
The Bose Smart Soundbar 300 uses a single connection to your TV via an optical audio cable (included) or an HDMI cable (sold separately). Simply connect the soundbar to your TV, hook it up to power and turn it on. Then, download the Bose Music app to complete your setup, connect to your Wi-Fi and choose your voice assistant.
With the Bose Music app, you can easily set up your soundbar, choose your voice assistant and browse through all of 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 300 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. And multiple users can personalise their experience and content.

And, you can pair a Bose smart soundbar with selected Bose headphones to get synchronised sound at separate volume levels—which means you can lower or mute your soundbar while keeping your headphones loud.

How do I connect the Bose Smart Soundbar 300 to my TV?
The Bose Smart Soundbar 300 uses a single connection to your TV via an optical audio cable (included) or an HDMI™ cable (sold separately).
Does the Bose Smart Soundbar 300 have a headphone output?
No. However, using Bose SimpleSync™ technology, you can wirelessly pair the Bose Smart Soundbar 300 with the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 to get synchronised sound at separate volume levels—which means you can lower or mute your soundbar while keeping your headphones loud. This connection is restricted to one soundbar and one pair of headphones at a time.
Does the Bose Smart Soundbar 300 have Wi-Fi built in?
Yes. The soundbars use the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard.

However, when using calling products, both parties are required to have this feature set up in order to use it, and must be on Wi-Fi.

Can I connect two wireless bass modules to my soundbar?
Yes. If you desire even more bass, you can wirelessly connect two bass modules to the Bose Smart Soundbar 300. But you can only connect two of the same bass modules. In other words, you must connect two Bose Bass Module 700 units, or two Bose Bass Module 500 units, to a single soundbar. You cannot connect one Bose Bass Module 700 and one Bose Bass Module 500 to a single soundbar.
How do I wirelessly connect the optional Bose Bass Module and/or Surround Speakers?
The optional accessory speakers and bass modules can be paired via the Bose Music app during the initial product setup. You will be prompted to add your accessory speakers after you download the Bose Music app and start the set-up process. If you did not add a bass module or speakers during the initial set-up process (or if you purchase them later), you can go into the settings menu for your soundbar in the Bose Music app and add them at any time.
Are the Bose Surround Speakers wireless?
Yes. The Bose Surround Speakers connect wirelessly to the Bose Smart Soundbar 300, so no wires would be required from the front of the room to the rear, for example. But the Bose Surround Speakers do require electrical power to power the wireless receiver, and there is a speaker wire connecting the wireless receiver to the speaker itself.
Can source devices, such as a set-top box, Blu-ray player, gaming system etc., be connected directly to the Bose Smart Soundbar 300?
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.
