We don’t get the cinema hall experience at home. We can use the big screen at our home, but what about the cinematic audio? For cinematic audio, we need a good soundbar. But should it be Dolby Digital or Dolby Atmos soundbar? Should it come with a surround channel or without it? And the biggest question – which is the best soundbar among plenty of brands? I’ll answer all these questions in this article.
In this article, I’ll tell you about the best soundbars in India 2022.
But before we start, I want to tell you some important things about soundbars that are essential for you to know.
- Audio enhances: If you only want to enhance your TV volume, you need a budget soundbar. Do not buy these soundbars.
- Sound quality: I’ll rate the soundbar with less watt higher than the lower one. I’ll do so based on audio notes, notes compression, audio signature, and clarity. Keep these things in mind while purchasing a soundbar.
- Surround Sound: You must buy a soundbar that will surround channels. Just a 2.1 soundbar cannot give surround sound. That is only a virtual surround sound. The surround channels must be placed above your ear level. If you cannot but surround sound soundbar, then go for 2.1 soundbars, but do not expect surround sound.
- Connectivity Options: If there is no HDMI ARC or Optical input port in your TV, please do not buy any of these soundbars. You will not get Dolby Digital or a good audio codec by connecting it with AUX input. You will only get the stereo audio. In this case, buy a budget soundbar because it is the same audio, just at a higher volume.

It is a fantastic soundbar inclined towards balanced audio, but you don’t get properly balanced audio. It has a slightly heavy bass, which gives you the punchy bass feeling. But if you want a hefty bass, then this is not the soundbar for you. Buy this soundbar if you want a slightly heavy bass with good audio quality.
It gives outstanding surround sound. No soundbar can compete in a home theatre. You can buy this soundbar for rs 20,000.
4. Polk Audio Magnify Mini Soundbar
This is a small-sized, excellent soundbar that sounds very loud. It comes with 4 Speakers, 2 Tweeters, and 1 active wireless subwoofer. The out of speakers and tweeters is 150W, and that of Subwoofer is 150W, making the total output of this soundbar 300W.

Its audio is amazing, perfectly balanced, and it does not have any issue with high or low notes. You get dialogue enhancer technology, which means you can enhance dialogues by reducing the music during the night. It gives you overall balanced audio.
Its feature is mostly a gimmick, e.g., Chromecast. Try to cast a youtube video on this soundbar via your phone, but even after trying 25 minutes, there will be no audio because it is full of bug Chromecast.
You get dual-band wifi, but when I tried to connect it with my phone’s hotspot, it took me more than 20 minutes to connect it once. The wifi of this soundbar is again a bug.
But if I exclude these two non-important features, then this is an amazing soundbar. No other soundbar stands in front of it in audio comparison.
If you like a heavy bass audio signature, you must not buy Polk Magnify Mini because it is more of a balanced audio signature soundbar.
5. Yamaha YAS 209 Soundbar with wireless subwoofer
Yamaha YAS 209 is the best option in this category. It comes with 4 Speakers, 2 Tweeters, and 1 Active wireless subwoofer. It has a 100W soundbar and a 100W active wireless subwoofer, making its total output 200W.

Yamaha soundbar has Clear dialogues, well-balanced audio, and an amazing audio signature. If you want a brilliant soundbar in which you can analyze and differentiate every single note, then this is your deal. It has dialogue enhancer technology to increase the clarity of dialogues, and this is one of the best technologies in premium soundbars.
Even if you watch movies or listen to music, this is an excellent option. It prices rs 35,000, but I felt there were 2 cons.
Since it costs rs 35,000, I expected HDMI eARC or HDMI 2.1 port. This soundbar was launched 2 years back, and that is why we couldn’t have an eARC port. The second con is the lack of display, which is really disappointing. But if you let go of these two cons, then it is a fantastic soundbar.
