Is Bose compatible with Samsung?

All Bose headsets designed for Samsung devices come with a small in-line remote control and a built-in microphone. You can easily answer your calls, hang up and adjust the volume.

Note: The letter “S” on the back of the remote indicates that these headphones have been designed for use with Samsung Galaxy devices. Some remote control functions may not be available on some models. Consult the user guide for your Samsung Galaxy device to verify if the remotes work with your model.

How do I connect my Bose to my Samsung TV?

  1. Connect the soundbar to the TV
  • On the back of the Samsung TV, locate the HDMI eARC or HDMI ARC connector

Note : If your TV does not have an HDMI connector marked eARC or ARC, you can use the optical cable to connect the Samsung TV to the soundbar. An HDMI input must have ARC (Audio Return Channel) functionality to allow the TV to send the audio signal to the soundbar.

  • Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI eARC or HDMI ARC connector on the Samsung TV.
  • Plug the other end of the cable into the soundbar’s HDMI (ARC) connector.
  1. Connect the soundbar to power.
  • Plug the AC power cord into the power connector on the back of the soundbar.
  • Plug the other end of the power cord into the AC power outlet. If the socket is active, the soundbar will turn on automatically.
  1. Download the Bose Music app.
  • On your mobile device, download the Bose Music app using Google Play or the Apple App Store

The Bose Music app is only available for devices with Android 5.1 or iOS 10.3.3 or later operating systems installed. Kindle devices are not supported.

  • Log in to the app using your Bose account credentials or create a Bose Music account by following the instructions in the app.

Once the soundbar is added to your account, you will be able to associate streaming music services with it.

Corrective measures to no sound from your device connected to the TV

If you can’t hear any sound from a device connected to your TV, try the following:

Press the TV icon on the Bose remote. The system turns on and chooses the last used source, which can be a source on the TV.

The soundbar’s light bar flashes white in response to signals sent from the remote control. If the light bar does not flash when you select a source on the remote, see the troubleshooting procedure The remote does not work .

Try another channel, disc, or playback application. The content used may be a problem.

If the source has its own volume controls or audio output settings, verify that the volume is correct and that the audio settings are correct for the connection you are using.

Try another source connected to the TV or try launching a media service built into the TV. If you hear sound through other sources on the TV, the problem is with that source. Try resetting your TV or smart device to resolve this issue.

The audio output setting of some TVs must be correctly configured when the sound is passed through other speakers. Check your TV settings to see if it has an audio output setting. If this is the case, check that this parameter corresponds to the type of audio connection used (HDMI ARC or optical) and that the television speakers are indeed deactivated.

Check that the soundbar’s HDMI cable is correctly inserted into a socket on your television marked with HDMI eARC or ARC (Audio Return Channel).

If your TV does not have an HDMI connector with eARC or ARC label, use an optical cable to connect the TV to the sound bar. The HDMI input must be equipped with ARC (Audio Return Channel) functionality for the TV to send audio to the sound bar.

Make sure the device is properly connected to your TV. The audio cable’s plugs may not be pushed far enough into the connectors, or the cable may be loose. Check that the cables between the device and the TV are securely connected at both ends. Also check that the input selected on the TV matches the connection the device is plugged into on the back of the TV.

Reset the sound bar by unplugging the power cord from the AC outlet, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord back into a live AC outlet.
