Bose Soundbar 900 Review

The Quick Verdict

Stunning to look at even better to listen to, I’d recommend this to anyone looking for the very best Soundbar available! 5 stars!

Since adding the Bose Soundbar 900 to our TV we wouldn’t want it to be removed. 

We’ve found it easy to use via the app along with providing some incredible sound while watching some of the only films to watch when checking the sound quality of a soundbar; Star Wars intro or Top Gun! 

Both sound amazing through the Soundbar 900.

Overall Rating: 
5/5 stars

The Bose Soundbar 900 is the top of the range of Bose soundbars. 

It features an impressive array of features including Alexa or Google Assistant built in, support for Dolby Atlas and HDMI eARC for connecting seamlessly with your TV. 

We tested the product using the eARC and attached to a Samsung QE85Q70AATXXU 4K LED TV that should give the Soundbar enough power to really test it. 

Bose describes the Soundbar as an “immersive sound experience” and we can’t disagree. 

It looks amazing and when we crank the volume right up the dog walkers on the back field start to dance! 

Sound is projected into all corners of the room and helps create a real sense of being in the Cinema but at home. 

It even makes the Star Wars theme tune sound better!

Design and Features of the Bose Soundbar 900

  • Stylish and modern aesthetic
  • Polished glass top which is impact resistant
  • 9 speakers including two dipole up-firing transducers 
  • 9 channels of amplification 
  • Bose’s PhaseGuide technology has been incorporated with the design
  • Able to control your TV box and turn on your TV with Alexa.

This soundbar looks great and has all the features of the best on the market.  

Cleaning a Bose 900

As the top of the speaker is made with glass, it needs cleaning a lot. From dust to finger prints it attracts them all. It is easy enough to clean though using a microfibre cloth. 

For cleaning other places make sure to use a dry cloth and that the ventilation area is not covered up.

Setting up the soundbar 900

First connect the soundbar to the power by putting the cord into the power port of the speaker and the other end into a main plug socket. 

If the soundbar enters network standby mode there are three ways in which you can turn the product on:

  • Using the remote, press either the power button, a source button or the Bose music button and then press a preset button. 
  • If audio goes off then either use your mobile device or use the Bose Music App. 
  • By asking google or talking to Alexa.

How to use

Once the soundbar has been positioned well to your preference and plugged into the power then all that is left to do is to download the Bose music app. 

From there you will have to follow the instructions on the app. 

Once the instructions on the app have been followed you will then be able to add different music services, customise the sound experience, add a voice assistant and acquire new features.

Within the APP you can use the ADAPTiQ function to let the speaker automatically work out the best set-up for sound within the room you have your speaker set-up.

I am an avid tech lover and the journey started back when LCD TVs and Plasma image burn were all too common. Over the years I have sold technology in retail stores but more recently have been building numerous businesses all based around technology. It's great to be able to test new tech and provide my thoughts on a platform like this.
