Top Features | Best Wireless Soundbars

  • Our Rating – This is based on our own research in product testing and user feedback. Clicking on each product takes you to Amazon’s product page where you can read customer reviews on the product you’re interested in.
  • Channels – How many channels (i.e. speakers) does the soundbar have? Even though on the outside it looks like one long speaker, many wireless soundbars infact have 2 or even 4 speakers within the frame, in additon to a subwoofer. Essentially, a soundbar that has 2 speakers and one subwoofer is known as a 2.1 channel sound system.
  • Power Output – The total amount of electrical power the speakers have, measured in watts. The more watts that a speaker has, the louder it can go, which is ideal if you’re holding loud house parties. However, a high amount of watts has little to do with sound quality.
  • Bluetooth – All wireless speakers should have built-in Bluetooth capabilities which will allow you to wirelessly stream audio from other Bluetooth devices such as smartphones, Android tablets and Smart TVs.
  • NFC (Near Field Communication) – Some of the best wireless soundbars also have NFC built-in which basically allows two NFC devices to be wirelessly paired when they are brought within around 10 cm or less with each other. This type of wireless connection is widely used in superstores for contactless card payments. In regards to home use, you can simply leave your smartphone (that has NFC) next to the soundbar for quick streaming of music.
  • Wireless Subwoofer – If you opt to buy a wireless soundbar with a subwoofer, then you’d probably want one that’s wireless with the option to be wired.
  • Ports – Typically, most wireless soundbars have common ports including AUX (for headphones and other wired audio devices) and a digital audio connection (optical, A/V or HDMI). Additional useful ports include USB which accesses data from a USB device such as a memory stick or external HDD and ethernet for wired router connection (for sound systems that may require a more reliable wireless connection with multiple speakers).
  • Price – If you want to know the price of any of the models, just click on the Buy Now button or Check Price and you’ll be redirected to the product page. The reason we don’t put prices is because they constantly change and there are so many sellers offering different prices.
SONOS Wireless Soundbar System
The SONOS PLAYBAR (wireless soundbar) can connect with several other wireless speakers to create an entire home sound system.

Reasons to Buy a Wireless Soundbar

  • Saves Space – One of the main selling points of a single wireless soundbar is that it takes up less space than a Hi-Fi system that has multiple individual speakers. There’s also less cables to worry about, thus saving you time from having to set it all up, and worrying about how messy the cables look.
  • Link to Smart Devices – It’s just not as fun and free not being able to wirelessly play music from your smartphone, computer or any other Bluetooth supported player. This functionality is what a wireless soundbar excels at, as well as connection to your TV.
  • With or Without a Subwoofer – If saving space is a top priority for you, then you have the option to buy a soundbar without a subwoofer. However, sound output and depth would be limited without one. If you do want a subwoofer, then you may want to consider one that’s wireless from the soundbar.
  • Wall Mountable – Most soundbars can be mounted onto the wall (ideally just below your TV) which not only saves space, but it looks attractive and organized too.
