I'm trying to find a model number, found a serial number. It's a wave music system III.

Bose Wave Music System III
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 2 years ago

Thanks. That system does not have Blue Tooth in any form. I'm looking to see if there is a workaround.

Okay, you will need extra equipment to make this work with Blue Tooth headphones.

You use the headphone port on the back of the Wave III, and plug a "BlueTooth" adapter into that port. The adapter is at the link below for purchase and you can then "pair" the headphones to the BT adapter to listen wirelessly:

If I plug in headphones to a blue tooth adapter in the back of my theater unit, how is that wireless?
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 2 years ago

You don't pug headphones into the blue tooth adapter.

Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 2 years ago

I never said that.

You plug the adapter in, the the headphones connect to the ADAPTER WIRELESSLY.

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 2 years ago

The adapter makes the Bose Wave wireless. Then your headphones pair to the adapter- wirelessly.

Let me know if you need further clarification.

aren't
the bose quiet comfort 25 headphones supposed to have Bluetooth with it?
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 2 years ago

Yes, but you're not understanding that your Bose Wave does NOT have Blue Tooth with it, which is why I am suggesting the Blue Tooth adapter be plugged into the Wave.

Ask Your Own Home Theater-Stereo Question
Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 2 years ago

So to put it another way:

Your Headphones are wireless.

Your Wave is not.

Plugging the adapter into the Wave makes it wireless.

No cable is needed to connect the headphones to the Wave. The headphones connect "wirelessly" to the adapter.

That is what you want- a wireless solution to get the Wave to the headphones correct?
