What Are The Best Sound Bars?
Sound bars are used to solve the big issues of flat TV’s sound. Big TV/ Flat TV’s have several drawbacks: the main one is that most of these televisions project the sound backwards, so a lot of audio quality is lost. Installing one of these bars is a good solution to this problem and will make you enjoy the movies in a different way.
Soundbars have come to wage war on old home theatre systems. With them, it is no longer necessary to fill the room with cables and speakers for your television. Also, unlike older systems, a good soundbar does a pretty decent job of playing music too

It is slim and stylish. This soundbar is designed to suit any space and features subtle details such as LEDs (they change colours according to the mode) that add a nice touch.
The Bose Music app is necessary to install this soundbar. It is available for Android and iOS. The application performs practically the entire process and is very easy to use. Connect to speakers, WiFi connection and other accesses.
From the app, you can also play music from online streaming services like Amazon Music, Deezer, and Spotify. Connecting with Alexa is also very easy and the built-in microphones pick up your voice beautifully, but not if you’re using the bar to play loud music.
In Adapt IQ mode, the stereo image is perceived a bit wider, while in standard mode the bass sounds more natural. Explosions and movie effects are very loud, but they don’t have the depth you get with a subwoofer. The mids and highs are solid. Dialogue scenes appear bright and clear. The performance is excellent in the low-mid and high tones, it only leaves something to be desired in the lower frequencies.
Rich bass and detailed treble can be controlled by Alexa.
Somewhat expensive, the sub-basses leave something to be desired.
