Bose Soundbar Universal Remote is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great for my soundbar 500! I purchased the Bose universal remote for my Bose Soundbar 500 as that remote was very limiting. I was very skeptical due to all of the negative reviews but I took a chance. I have a 2019 Samsung 6 series 4k tv and an Apple 4k tv plus a Xbox One X. The remote paired to all of the devices and works very well with all of them. I would have given this a 4.5 stars. The reason for the deduction is the backlight does not stay on long. Since this remote is setup via the app you should be able to control how long the backlighting stays on. Hopefully there could be an update for that otherwise I personally like the extra weight of the remote and the feel and look.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bose designers failed The folks who designed this clearly failed to watch people of all generations use this. The lighted keys are nice but the back lights are on for microseconds. Or you need to shake it and read it concurrently. I looked for a setting to increase the time that they are backlit. Nope. The buttons don’t give a lot of tactile feedback like other remotes. And you have to learn some new icons. Wish they could provide this capability over a Smartphone app. Why not add an IR transmitter to the sound bar so it could operate Bluetooth from remote to sound bar, then IR from sound bar to TV and cable box

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An Insult to the Word Universal Remote - Painfull Been a Bose User and Fan for over 20+ Years, this remote is an insult to the word Universal Remote and to the Bose Name Purchased the 700 Soundbar system and this remote came with it, Why would you design a Remote thats bulky, heavy and absolutely useless, the Apple TV's remote does a phenomenal job as compared to this remote, it does injustice to your still a good product the Soundbar 700 Is Innovation dead at Bose, have you stopped testing your products before you release them to market ? Do yourselves a favor and dump this remote and build one as sleek as the Apple Remote with a touch interface, no wonder everyone is eating into your market while you continue to become complacent

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lights dont stay on long enough Such a shame, this is such a premium remote but the fact that the timing of the back lights can’t be adjusted makes it unusable. They claim it stays on for three seconds, but I can assure you it is not nearly long enough and will drive you absolutely nuts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Isn’t prepared for newer smart TVs Bought the sound bar to go with our Insignia ROKU tv. The codes for insignia do not work, because it is a smart tv with apps not channels. And the ROKU codes don’t work because it is ROKU built in and not a ROKU device attached. The only thing we can use this remote for is the sound bar itself. I wish there were an app for this then I could have all my devices on my phone instead of keeping up with remotes that only work for one thing. The speaker itself is phenomenal and sounds great. It is exactly what we were looking for. I wish the remote were better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced Apple 4K TV Remote The Apple TV touch pad controller was a pain. Either too sensitive or not sensitive enough, often dropped because of how small and smooth it is. The Bose Universal Remote has been a welcome upgrade. It even has the ability to slow motion play shows, though I haven’t learned how to invoke on demand (I accidentally invoke). I never have to worry about anything being in the way of the receiver. Additionally, it has a nice design and feel. If anyone knows how to invoke the slow motion play on the Apple TV, please comment. Thank you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dissapointed! Bought this remote so I can discard all the others, easy to set-up but it's very "glitchy". Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I've had to revert back to using my original remotes. Waste of money! The backlights stay on wayyyyyy to short which is annoying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 700 setup issues Bought the 700 soundbar and I’m seriously considering returning it! System isn’t playing sound from my Samsung TV via HDMI, and I refuse to go backwards an use an optical cable. Shouldn’t be this difficult. Very disappointed with this aspect of a Bose product. The only pro so far... Playing music via BT, the sound is PHENOMENAL!! I’ll give customer support a chance Monday, if issues exist , I’m returning the system. Update coming 1 July 19.
