Sometimes TV manufacturers cut corners to get the price down for consumers—they’re more likely to pour money into a TV’s display, for example, than its speakers. The end result is an audio experience that isn’t very clear, loud, detailed, or rich.
Good news: A great soundbar can majorly improve your TV-watching game, no matter what kind of TV you own. The TaoTronics TV Soundbar is an excellent option, and it’s on sale for just $60 at Amazon. This ‘Amazon’s Choice’ soundbar is so popular, it’s earned a flawless five-star rating from more than 6,300 reviewers.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.
Detailed and affordable home audio
The soundbar turns out robust, crystal-clear audio with deep bass. It sports four full range speakers with two passive bass speakers and outputs audio at an impressive 40-watts—compared to the 5-to-10-watt speakers that likely came with your TV.
The soundbar attaches to your TV via digital optical port, but it can also connect with RCA cables and a standard 3.5mm stereo jack. It even includes Bluetooth 5.0, so you can sync your smartphone, tablet or laptop to it. Got a pair of Bluetooth headphones? You can pair them for private listening. It even comes with a remote.
“I decided to invest in a soundbar so I could get clearer audio out of my TV,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “I specifically chose this soundbar because not only does it work with my TV (I connect via the included optical cable), but I can connect my phone to the soundbar too, when I'm not using the TV using Bluetooth! Setup was extremely easy. All I had to do was plug it into an outlet and the optical port on my TV. For Bluetooth it is automatically in pairing mode when you switch to Bluetooth mode so first-time pairing was a breeze.”
Want a nice clean look? Mount it on the wall, right under your TV.
Rivals big-name brands
At 32 inches long, the TaoTronics soundbar is the ideal size for 40-to-60-inch TVs. It has three modes of audio—games, music and movie—so you’ll always get the best sound. Amazon reviewers are raving about this model; some even say it rivals top-name brands.
“The sound on this 32-inch soundbar is crystal clear and the functions are easy to work,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “I have a Samsung soundbar and subwoofer combo in our living room and this soundbar blows them out of the water for clarity.”
At just 60 bucks, the TaoTronics TV Soundbar is a great way to upgrade your home audio on the cheap without sacrificing quality or looks. “I never realized how bad the sound quality was in my house until I plugged this in and heard what it was supposed to sound like. The TaoTronics soundbars are definitely worth every penny,” raved another five-star reviewer.
