'Blown away': This stellar Bose soundbar makes dialogue easier to understand

Updated ·3 min read

Soundbars can be the saving grace for a TV with less than stellar audio. But there are so many models on the market, it can be tough to know where to start. For impressive sound quality on the cheap, you can't go wrong with Amazon's No. 1 best-selling Majority Bowfell or the top-rated TCL Alto 3, both of which hover around $40.

Of course, if you want a premium sound experience, there's no better brand than Bose. Right now, the Bose TV Speaker Bluetooth Soundbar — a small but powerful wireless model — is on sale for $229 (was $279).

Upgrade your TV with this wireless soundbar that makes dialogue sound clearer and music sound crisper.

Bose — a household name synonymous with quality, longevity, and timeless design — was founded by an MIT professor of electrical engineering on a quest for better sound. The brand's state-of-the-art technology is now utilized in places like the Sistine Chapel and the Japan National Theater.

Bose is also the brand of choice in countless homes just like yours. It not only beats your TV’s built-in speakers by a long shot, but it’s a wire-free, space-saving alternative to a multi-component sound system. The slim unit (it's 4 inches deep and 23 inches wide) sits inconspicuously under your TV while broadcasting shows, films, and podcasts in crystal-clear audio, thanks to its unique, bass-enhancing dialogue mode. It actually clarifies pronunciation!

Says a fan: "For years I was bothered by my old Sony TV sound speaker because the movie dialogue was hard to hear," shared an Amazon shopper. "Just received this Bose TV speaker yesterday and had it hooked up in less than five minutes. The sound quality is good, but most importantly the dialogue feature makes watching movies a much better experience! Loving it!

The powerhouse Bose TV Speaker Soundbar — with Dolby Digital support and a center tweeter — is Bluetooth-enabled, so you can sync it to your phone, too.

Tech novice? Not to worry. The soundbar is a breeze to set up. "Easy as pie to use," wrote a happy customer. "Once I figured out I needed to turn my TV speakers off, I was blown away! Theater-quality sound, even from local news..."

Fans are openly applauding all the ways the Bose TV Speaker Bluetooth Soundbar has transformed their home theater experiences. "...The sound quality and experience are amazing," remarked a five-star reviewer. "If you want a bargain home theater system this is it..."

This beast of a soundbar will make your favorite podcasts, playlists, and Netflix shows that much better. Trust us: You won't be disappointed.
