The Bose SoundSport wireless headphones are a very useful piece of equipment.
But how do they work with multiple pairing functions?
How Do I Pair My Bose Soundsport Bluetooth Headphones?
The user’s phone can be connected to the Bose SoundSport Wireless headphones via Bluetooth or Near Field Communication. The Bose Connect app may also be used to pair the SoundSport Wireless headphones. Press and hold the power button until the light goes blue to enable Bluetooth pairing.
You’ve come to the right place if you’ve recently purchased a pair of Bose SoundSport Wireless headphones and are experiencing difficulties pairing them.
This article will teach you how to pair your headphones with a variety of methods.
How to Bluetooth Pair Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
Bluetooth is without a doubt the most convenient way to connect your headphones to your phone or another listening device.
We’re most accustomed to this form of matching.
To enable BlueTooth pairing on your Bose SoundSport, press and hold the power button until you hear “ready to pair.” The little indicator light becoming blue is another clue that your headphones are ready to pair.
Find your headphones on the list in the BlueTooth menu on your phone or another listening device.
Allow a few moments for the Bose SoundSport headphones to pair after picking them from the list.
You can begin listening to music after the pairing is complete.
Before attempting to pair your Bose SoundSport wireless headphones with your phone, make sure they are fully charged.
The headphones may not appear on your BlueTooth list if the battery is low.
Turn both devices off, wait a few seconds, then turn them back on and try again if the headphones still won’t pair with your listening device.
Contact Bose customer service if the pairing issues persist.
How to Use NFC to Pair Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
While most of us are familiar with pairing devices via Bluetooth, NFC is a less well-known method.
However, because your Bose SoundSport Wireless headphones support NFC, you should understand how to use them.
But, first and foremost, what is NFC?
Near-field communication, or NFC, is a sort of technology that enables two devices to connect with one another.
Both devices must have NFC capability in order for Near Field Communication to work.
Furthermore, the two devices must be within four inches of each other.
So, how do you know if your device supports NFC? This pairing technique is currently available on a wide range of modern gadgets.
See a list of some of the most popular NFC gadgets below.
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone XR
- Samsung Galaxy S21
- Samsung Galaxy 8
- Samsung S10e
- Google Pixel 4 (and beyond)
As you can see, the majority of famous smartphone companies now include NFC capabilities in their most recent models.
NFC is a feature that can be found on even older gadgets.
If you have an iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X, for example, you can use a free app to access an NFC tag reader.
These older devices can pair using NFC thanks to apps like “NFC for iPhone,” “NFC Tools,” and “NFC-Helper.”
NFC capabilities may be used for more than just syncing your Bose headphones.
NFC can be used to share WiFi passwords, make payments, and more on some devices.
You can use Apple Pay on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, for example.
NFC is required for Apple Pay to work.
However, NFC apps will not work with your Bose SoundSport headphones on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Because this form of pairing necessitates such close proximity between the two devices, Bose only uses these features to make pairing the headphones through Bluetooth even easier.
On your SoundSport wireless headphones, press the power button.
Next to your phone, place the headphones (or another NFC-enabled device).
On your screen, you’ll see a message asking you to pair the headphones with your device through Bluetooth.
Confirm your choice and begin listening to your music.
If no prompt occurs, proceed to the pairing procedures for BlueTooth above.
How to Use the Bose Connect App to Pair Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
You can connect your Bose SoundSport Wireless headphones to your phone directly to listen to music, or you can use the Bose Connect app.
Begin by installing the Bose Connect app on your smartphone.
After you’ve downloaded the app to your phone, sign in or establish a Bose account.
The Bose Connect app will invite you to enable both notifications and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Bose Connect app will search for compatible devices when Bluetooth is turned on (when they are in pairing mode).
If the app is having trouble connecting to the Bose Connect app, Bose recommends first syncing the drive with the app via Bluetooth or NFC.
(You can find the instructions for this in the sections above.) After connecting the devices, reopen the Bose Connect app.
Once connected to the Bose Connect app, you have unlocked a plethora of features for your device.
You may update the software on your headphones, clean the memory on your headphones, track your headphones if you lose them (using Tile technology), and more.
Nobody likes it when their music is interrupted by an alarm, but if you need a reminder, you can use the Bose Connect app to set an auto-off timer on your headphones.
You may also adjust the volume on your headphones using the Bose Connect app.
Do you want to know how much longer your headphones will last? The Bose Connect app can be used to check the battery level of your SoundSport wireless headphone.
Because the SoundSport wireless headphones only have 6-hour battery life on a single charge, it’s critical to know how much time you have left.
Do you and your pals love listening to music, podcasts, or watching TV episodes together? If that’s the case, using the Bose Connect app to pair your SoundSport wireless headphones is a must.
You can share what you’re listening to with another pair of Bose headphones via the Bose Connect app.
When watching or listening in designated quiet spaces, such as the library, this feature comes in useful.
If you own more than one Bose gadget, the Bose Connect app comes in handy.
