Buy from third-party partners

Amazon is always a great one-stop-shop for many goods and that includes soundbars. It sells an extensive variety of soundbars from all the major manufacturers including Sony, Samsung, LG, Sonos, and much more. Its excellent search filters on the left side of the screen make it easy to search via brand, average customer review rating, and price. You can also narrow things down according to size and how the soundbar connects to your other devices.

It’s a simple-to-use tool that will greatly help you figure out what’s best for you. Add in the fast and reliable shipping, along with easy payment options, and Amazon is easily the number one recommendation for finding the exact soundbar you need. Even better, Amazon often has regular sales on products such as soundbars which means you’re sure to get the best price possible thanks to the company always keen to be highly competitive against other retailers out there.

Just keep an eye on the customer ratings. They’re not always the most trustworthy so you’re often better off consulting our guides to the best soundbars to have true insight into what to expect from your purchase.

Best Buy

Best Buy

If you’d prefer to head to a brick-and-mortar store, Best Buy remains the best of both worlds. You can check out stock and pricing on a potential soundbar via the website before hitting the store pickup button so you can head to your local store to collect it. There are always options for it to be delivered to you too if that proves more convenient.

As with Amazon, you can use Best Buy’s search tools to narrow soundbars down according to price, features, brand, and more, with some competitive prices out there. We’re fans of how Best Buy highlights when a soundbar is on sale as well as its price match guarantee which means you’re sure of a good deal at all times.

Walmart

Walmart is another reliable brick-and-mortar option with the ability to search extensively online before heading to your local store for free pickup or opting to order for home delivery instead. It offers some fairly good prices alongside extensive search tools but Best Buy beats it a little on great deals.

Still, it’s worth checking out for good offers and there are payment plans available if you want to spread the cost.

B&H Photo Video

Best known for its extensive array of photography equipment, B&H Photo Video also offers a number of soundbars too. As you’d expect, you can check out via brand as well as numerous other search options with customer ratings generally fairly reliable.

The array of choices isn’t quite as vast as other retailers but it’s more than good enough, and all the big-name brands are here. While discounts aren’t as widespread either, you’re still able to find a bargain every once in a while with bundle deals also part of the setup.

Adorama

With a smaller selection of soundbars than other retailers, it’d be easy to overlook Adorama. It’s worth checking out though. While the company focuses on the most prestigious of brands such as Bose, Sonos, and Yamaha, it occasionally has some great discounts. In particular, it’s worth checking out how the reward card scheme can help you out, as well as how Adorama’s six-month financing plan can help you buy a more high-end soundbar than elsewhere.

Just bear in mind that the options available aren’t as vast so if you need to do some window shopping, this isn’t the place to go.

Buy from the manufacturer

Some retailers such as Sony and Samsung sell their soundbars directly to customers thanks to online storefronts. If you purchase directly, you’ll save yourself the effort of having to dig through hundreds of listings on Amazon or Best Buy. Of course, that means fewer options so you’ll need to be confident that the manufacturer in question is the one for you.

Still, it can be a real timesaver if you know exactly which brand and product name is the soundbar for you.

Score the Beats Studio Pro for $100 off at Best Buy
Beats Studio Pro on headphone stand.

It’s getting harder and harder to find wireless headphones and earbuds without noise-canceling these days, and that’s because the feature is a true godsend. As masters of the tech, Beats has been delivering excellent ANC audio products for years, which is why we’re so excited that Best Buy has marked down the Beats Studio Pro headphones. Normally, these headphones are $350, but now they’re only $250 while the sale lasts!

Why you should buy Beats Pro headphones
A solid set of noise-canceling headphones are nothing without robust sound quality backing them up; and to that end, the Studio Pro has got you covered. You can expect big bass, articulate mids, and crystalline highs, but without all the sibilance that too much treble brings. You’ll even be able to download the Beats App to truly fine-tune your listening experience, while monitoring battery level and other vitals. There’s no multi-band EQ, but that’s a small detractor for some otherwise rock-solid companion software.

These Skullcandy over-the-ear headphones are down to $100 from $200
Skullcandy Crusher Evo

Skullcandy is a brand that's been on the market for a while, and it make some pretty good headphones, even if they may not necessarily compete with the best headphones on the market like Sony's XM5s or the Apple AirPods Max. Luckily, these Skullcandy Crusher Evo are a pretty solid option for the usual price they go for, which is $200, but this deal from Best Buy that knocks them down to just $100 makes them an actual steal. As such, they're perfect if you're shopping for a solid mid-range pair of headphones on a tight budget.

Why you should buy the Skullcandy Crusher Evo
Even for a pair of $200 headphones, the Skullcandy Crusher Evo are surprisingly powerful when it comes to bass, and is perfect for those who really enjoy bass-heavy music. A lot of that is achieved by Skullcandy's Sensory Bass system, which asks you to register the frequencies you can hear in a series of tests, and adjusting the EQ accordingly. Interestingly, this personal audio adjustment is probably one of the best in the industry, although if you don't really want to fuss around with that, the audio out of the box is still pretty excellent, so they're a perfect set to grab and use immediately.
