Expert Reviews

The Bose Soundbar 700 is decent for mixed usage. It has a well-balanced and neutral sound profile, which is great for a wide variety of music genres and voice-oriented content like audiobooks and podcasts. This bar gets loud enough for most content and has a unique and wide soundstage, thanks to the side-firing speakers. However, it lacks some low-bass, although this can be improved by getting a separate subwoofer. It also doesn’t provide a very immersive listening experience with movies due to its 3.0 design.
