Without a doubt, one of the most popular consumer electronic products—and holiday gifts—is the soundbar. TVs continue to get thinner and more advanced, offering greater picture quality and smart functions. But the one thing that always suffers from this shrinkification is the TV’s sound. It’s simple physics: the thinner the TV, the thinner the speakers. And the thinner the speakers, the less air they can move, which means less volume, dynamic range, and overall sound quality. You can opt for a full home theater speaker system to overcome this limitation, but that’s often too complicated a solution for many. For those who want great sound, but in as simple a package possible, there is the soundbar. Bose soundbars are currently some of the most popular on the market, combining high-quality cinematic sound with the company’s typical user-friendly designs. But with a few different models available, we’re often asked which is best. The answer, of course, isn’t completely straightforward, so today we’re going to compare their two top, recently-released models. So check out the videos to see what we think in the Bose Soundbar 700 vs Soundbar 500 comparison.
First, we’re going to take a look at the Bose Soundbar 700, their flagship soundbar.
Now, we’ll take a look at the Bose Soundbar 500. While it’s smaller and more affordable than its big brother, it’s no slouch in the audio department.
