What is bluetooth pairing?

This sound bar supports bluetooth pairing which allows you to control the unit with a bluetooth capable device. If you have music playing from your iphone or android you can have that music sent wirelessly to the Vizio sound bar to have the music run through the speakers and sub woofer instead of the little speaker on your device. This adds another reason why this sound bar is a great investment. Just remember to keep the device within range of the SB3821 which is about 30 feet or 9 meters.

Think of all the content available on the web you can play directly to your sound bar. You don’t need any content stored on your device you can pull it from the web. For example if you have the InTune radio app you can find thousands of stations to play any kind of music, talk, podcasts you want from your device through the sound bar.
