According to current market trends, home theatre speakers, subwoofers and receiver packages are vastly outsold by 2.0 soundbars and the answer as to why they are doing so is very simple. Not only are these devices affordable and compact but also very easy to set up. Moreover, the audio quality they provide is vastly superior to television’s in-built speakers. As a result, many people now want a good soundbar for their homes so that they can enhance their audio experience. While buying a soundbar has somewhat become a no-brainer, doing so can be challenging because there are so many variants available. So, for your convenience, we have compiled a list of some of the best soundbars out there.

Bose SOUNDBAR 500

With a height of a mere 2-inches, this device should ensure that you get quality sound without obstructing the visuals on the screen. The matte-finish top and wraparound metal grille on the body go a long way in making this an aesthetically pleasing device to place alongside your TV. The Bose Soundbar 500 is equipped with Alexa to help you gain access to data, browse music, or even control your other smart devices. Additionally, the microphones on the device are capable of picking up voice commands even when your music is loud thanks to its noise-rejecting technology, the company claims. Apart from voice control, you can also use the Bose Music app or a special remote to change the music when you feel like it. As the soundbar is compatible with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth you can stream audio anytime, wirelessly.

Sony HT-X8500 Single 2.1Ch Soundbar

The Sony HT-X8500 Single 2.1Ch Soundbar is a good option for those looking for good quality sound at affordable prices. The USP of this device is that it comes with three different audio modes for different experiences namely, the news, gaming and sports mode. In each of the three, the audio is fine-tuned to suit the content, according to the company. Its powerful in-built dual subwoofers should allow you to enjoy deep bass sounds and that too without unnecessary equipment creating clutter in your home. Also, its simulated 7.1.2 surround sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X should make it seem as if the sound is coming from all directions. When it comes to design, the soundbar is slim and elegant and does not obstruct the visuals when placed in front of a TV.

Yamaha YAS-109

With a minimalist and sleek design, this soundbar from Yamaha should provide a brilliant sound output for your games, videos, movies and music, all the while sitting discreetly in front of your TV. This is suitable for both small rooms as well as large halls. Thanks to its in-built Alexa voice control, managing your smart devices along with giving verbal instructions for playing or changing music tracks should be as easy as pie. Also, the setup is very easy, according to the company. The DTS Virtual: X virtual 3D surround sound and built-in subwoofers on this soundbar should ensure that watching movies while switching on the device is always a cinematic experience. A feature which we found extremely helpful was the Mute option, which allows you to get the privacy you seek simply by muting Alexa.

JBL Bar 2.0 Wireless Soundbar

Want a soundbar that emphasises the bass? Then this device from JBL is made for you. Thanks to its dual bass port design, coupled with JBL’s patented surround sound technology, the sound output of this device is significantly better as compared to its competitors, according to the company. Now watch your favourite movies or play games, all the while getting the best sound experience. Those seeking convenience need not be worried as by using your existing TV remote, you can control both the soundbar as well as the TV. Connectivity is also a breeze – just plug in the soundbar to the TV using the USB cable and you are good to go. You can also plug in your USB hard drive into the soundbar to play music.
