Sound bar 700 Static Echo
Please help. Shortly after purchasing the Sound bar 700, It randomly started to produce a staticky Echo sound. In order to continue, using, I must shut the power off to reset. It's beginning to happen more frequently. Is my sound bar defective?
I am saddened to hear of your experience with your new Soundbar 700. I would love to do what I can to help.
Let us know how you get on.

I am experiencing the same issue, except my static is constant no matter what. The static is mostly noticeable in my rear invisible speakers, although I can hear it everywhere slightly.
I first tried moving the wireless speakers closer. Then just moving the transmitter unit closer. Then I tried moving the transmitter to different areas of the room.
I have tried switching the HDMI cable with three different cables. I have also tried switching to an optical cable. I have reset the audio, reset factory settings, and also power cycled the soundbar. Oh, and I switched from stereo, to Dolby digital, to DTS, plus, etc...
I have also let the Bose Music app update the speakers.
None of the above items fixed the issue, the static is constant.
Nothing about my setup is unusual, I have a TCL Roku TV, a PlayStation 4, and the Bose system (a soundbar 300, subwoofer 500, and the invisible rear speakers). I am running the subwoofer and the rears wirelessly.
Thanks for your help.
It sounds like you have done a lot of great troubleshooting already so thank you for doing that and letting us know!
As most of your troubleshooting so far has been around using the soundbar with the TV, is this the only time you are getting this static sound? If you were to play audio from the Bose Music app or Bluetooth would you get the static sound as well?
If it is only happening when using the TV, then there is likely something in the connection, or a setting on the TV that we can look into further. If it happens with Bluetooth or the Bose Music app as well, then I would recommend getting in touch with your local support team to discuss the service options available. You can find the contact information at this link, by selecting your country/region and then the 'Contact Us' option at the bottom of the page.
