Bose SimpleSync™ allows you to pair your Bose Smart Speakers and Soundbars 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 listen to the same music in different rooms at the same time? Pair your soundbar or speaker with a select Bose Bluetooth® speaker to add more sound around the house. Here’s how it works.
The kids’ naptime is the perfect time to catch up on your favorite shows. But do you ever worry they’ll wake up if the volume’s too loud? So, subtitles it is. Not anymore. With SimpleSync™ technology, you can pair select* Bose headphones to a Bose Smart Soundbar for an independent listening experience. And, more importantly, independent volume control. That way they sleep peacefully and you watch your shows — as loudly as you want. Check out the video below to see how simple it really is.
Whether you’re having family time on the patio or hosting the annual holiday party, you want everyone to hear the music — everywhere. Saying hello to guests from room to room or going outdoors to indoors, you can seamlessly follow along to the music. In the video below, see how to use SimpleSync™ to connect a Bose Smart Speaker to a select* Bose SoundLink portable Bluetooth speaker or a select SoundTouch speaker for a one-to-one connection. SimpleSync™ technology has a typical Bluetooth wireless range of 30 feet to stay connected.**
The free Bose Music app is the only app you need to use SimpleSync™, even with your SoundTouch speakers.* In just a few taps, you’ll be able to pair two select products and get 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.
Away from your phone? No app, no problem. Simply press and hold the Bluetooth button on each device to group and sync their sound at a moment’s notice.

How many Bose products can I connect with SimpleSync™ at the same time?
SimpleSync™ provides a one-to-one connection, so you can use it to pair two products maximum. Your two products must remain within typical Bluetooth wireless range (30 feet) of each other to stay connected. Walls and construction materials can affect reception at times.
Which Bose products have SimpleSync™?
All members of the Bose Smart Family can be paired with select Bose speakers and headphones. The number of compatible products will grow over time — for the complete list, see Products that support SimpleSync™ in the Bose Support section.
Can I use SimpleSync™ to connect a Bluetooth-enabled SoundTouch speaker to a Bose Smart Speaker?
Yes. SimpleSync™ establishes a Bluetooth connection from your Bose Smart Speaker to your Bluetooth-enabled SoundTouch speaker. The signal establishes a one-to-one connection, allowing the same music to be played in sync in two different rooms. However, the SoundTouch speaker must stay within the reliable Bluetooth range of 30 ft to maintain connection.
The products below are some of the products compatible with SimpleSync. The compatibility between products will grow over time — for a complete list, please see the "Products that support SimpleSync™" article in Bose Support.
