Top 10 Best Sony Soundbars
for December 2022

Soundbars, or soundbars with subwoofers, are a speaker system that combines a subwoofer and speakers to create a surround sound effect. They're perfect for small rooms or spaces without room for a home theater system.

Soundbars usually offer great sound quality, but if you're looking to up your audio game, a Sony soundbar could be a great option. Sony is one of the largest manufacturers of audio equipment in the world, and their soundbars are top-of-the-line.

Our Lab has tested dozens of Sony soundbars over the years, evaluating them for performance, such as volume, bass, and sound quality, as well as ease of use, including setup and connectivity. We also look at tech specifications, such as connectivity options (HDMI, USB, Bluetooth), the speakers' wattage, and sound quality. Our testers also evaluate user reviews, which can tell you whether the soundbar is easy to set up, is loud, and is aesthetically pleasing. Here are the best Sony soundbars you can buy in 2022:

What We like

This is the best wireless speaker we found for Sony's latest sound bar. It sounded great in our tests and looks really good, too. Its wireless range is relatively short, so you might want to mount it or place it on speakers if your TV is on the other side of the room.
