If you want to improve the audio output of your home theater setup, the obvious solution is to buy from soundbar deals. There’s not much room for high-quality speakers within the slim designs of today’s TVs, so soundbars are becoming a necessity. They range from basic equipment to complete surround sound systems, but whatever you’re looking for, you wouldn’t want to miss the discounts that you can get from the bargains that we’ve rounded up below. Check out our guide on how to buy a soundbar, then dive into these deals and make your purchase quickly as these offers may not last long.

The Sony S100F 2.0-channel soundbar is as simple as soundbars can come, with two channels — the standard left and right — that you can link to your TV through an HDMI ARC connection or to your mobile devices through Bluetooth. It may have a compact design, but it will deliver improved audio quality while you’re watching TV shows or movies, and it features Sony’s S-Force Pro Front Surround technology that fills your room with sound.

Vizio V-Series 5.1-channel soundbar — $189, was $219

The Vizio V-Series 5.1-channel soundbar is one of the cheapest ways of getting multiple channels for your audio. With five channels — the standard left and right, a center channel for improved dialog clarity, and two additional channels for surround sound — and the presence of a wireless subwoofer for extra bass, you’ll be getting powerful performance that you wouldn’t believe would be coming from such an affordable soundbar. The soundbar connects through HDMI ARC or Bluetooth, and you can also use it to issue voice commands to other smart home devices that are powered by digital assistants.

The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 not only delivers excellent music quality and impressive surround sound with Dolby Atmos, but it also serves as a smart speaker with your choice between Amazon’s Alexa or Google Assistant so you can use voice commands for a variety of functions. The soundbar connects through either HDMI eARC, optical audio, or Bluetooth, and it works with Bose SimpleSync technology that will allow you to pair it with compatible Bose wireless headphones for personal listening.

Sonos Arc — $835, was $899

The Sonos Arc is incredibly easy to set up and use, and once the soundbar is up and running, you’ll enjoy great audio with up-firing drivers that recreate Dolby Atmos sound. If you have other Sonos speakers, they can function as surround satellites for the Sonoc Arc for an even more immersive experience. The soundbar connects to your TV using an HDMI ARC/eARC port, and it can stream music from your favorite services through the Sonos app or Apple AirPlay 2. The Sonoc Arc can also serve as a smart speaker, with your choice between Sonos Voice Control, Amazon’s Alexa, and Google Assistant.

Beats Studio Buds deal: Save $65 on the true wireless earbuds
Red Beats Studio Buds.

There are lots of true wireless earbuds deals out there, but here's an offer from Amazon's Woot that may be too good for you to refuse -- a 43% discount for the Beats Studio Buds that slashes their price to just $85 from $150. There's not much time left if you want to take advantage of the $65 in savings though, so you better hurry with your purchase if you don't want to miss this bargain. You need to complete the transaction now, as the wireless earbuds may already be close to selling out.

Why you should buy the Beats Studio Buds
We consider the Beats Studio Buds as the Apple AirPods Pro Lite, as they offer most of the benefits of the AirPods Pro at a lower price -- and they're even cheaper with this discount from Woot. They offer active noise cancellation, which will block external sound you can focus on your music or videos, and transparency mode, which does the opposite of letting you hear what's happening in your surroundings without having to take off the wireless earbuds. They also come with three sizes of soft eartips, so you can choose the fit that's most comfortable and stable with the perfect seal.
