Some essential points to know before you buy a soundbar-
1. The types of soundbars as per the needs:
A budget soundbar is sufficient for enhancing the volume of the TV instead of a costly soundbar. A 2.1 system is the best for the purpose of listening to music. For home theatre experience, a proper 5.1 soundbar or 5.1 home theatre system is a must. A budget soundbar can’t give a cinematic experience.
2. Identify your needs:
More wattage doesn’t define a better audio signature. The total wattage isn’t the criterion to decide that. A less wattage system can sound good whereas a high wattage soundbar can sound poor. It all depends upon the audio signature you prefer, the acoustics of your room & power delivery. Understand this to buy the best soundbar.
3. Find out if Extra-subwoofer = More Bass:
You can’t add an extra subwoofer to increase the bass. Rather, buy a soundbar with a heavy bass signature and not balanced audio. After this; an extra subwoofer is not required.
4. Connectivity options:
Before buying do match the connectivity options of the TV with the soundbar. People often regret it later due to the lack of some essential ports. Think before you buy.
5. Virtual Surround Sound experience:
A soundbar gives a ‘virtual’ surround sound experience. You will only feel the surround sound a bit. Only a 5.1 channel home theatre can give exact surround sound. Don’t expect this from 2.1 soundbars. The soundbar can increase volume but for surround sound, a lot of speakers are required with proper placement. Don’t fall for the brand’s marketing.
6. Authentic Audio Tests:
The audio tests on Youtube are 90% compressed. To solve this, we have uploaded 4 different songs of different genres in our drive whose link is in the description of our video on Youtube. Listen to them to know why we recommend this soundbar. The same audio tests of the same 4 songs have been recorded. A movie sequence from every soundbar is also recorded to give you the experience of audio output during the movie.
7. Position of Microphones while testing:
We kept 2 microphones in a particular position to record both movie and music to get stereo output. The mic was kept at the same distance. The audio was recorded at 75% volume with full bass & treble to record exact audio. After this, you will definitely be able to buy the best soundbar.
8. A Subwoofer:
In the Under ₹5k category, you don’t get a subwoofer along with a soundbar. You get solo soundbars. No matter how hard you try, you won’t get the same bass as that of the subwoofer.
Recommended Soundbars Lists – Best soundbar in India under 5000-10000
1. Mulo Arena 5000 – Best soundbar under 5000
Among so many contenders the winner under the INR 5000 category is Mulo Arena 5000 which has both a soundbar & subwoofer. It has 2 speakers (10W each) & a 25W subwoofer. Total Output is 45W. It has amazing audio quality. However, we don’t recommend this soundbar today as its manufacturing has stopped and it is not available on Amazon. The company doesn’t have the stock. Instead, we recommend this Soundbar- Obage DT-21.
There are 2 speakers with 2 subwoofers. Each column has a 25W output. The total output is 50W. It has 2×3 inch full-range speaker drivers and 2×4 inch subwoofers. They perform well due to 80dB SNR. The frequency response is between 50Hz-15KHz. Everyone expects a good audio quality from their soundbar and that is why we recommend this system.
This is the most balanced audio quality in the speaker set. With amazing lower bass, the upper bass is controlled. Two types of bass are lower and upper bass. Lower bass is felt and it doesn’t have distortion. The upper bass is more ‘Booming’ which creates problems listening to vocals clearly. This is good in Obage DT-21. Its lower bass is good whereas the upper bass is controlled. No compromise is done and the mid-frequency and high frequency (treble) are tuned perfectly. This speaker setup makes V-shape audio signature which is exactly required for both movies and music.
There is neither HDMI nor Optical port. This shouldn’t be a con though as this system is priced under ₹5k.
It costs ₹4K but its audio quality is the best amongst other soundbar and 2.1 systems. Your target is to enjoy audio, watch movies and listen to music and we think this system will rock.
2. Boat Aavante 1500 or 1550- Best soundbar in India under 5000-10000
The best soundbar between ₹6K-₹7K is Boat Aavante 1500 or 1550. These are the same soundbars. One is available on Flipkart & the other on Amazon. They are ditto the same. Buy the cheaper one and buy it whenever you get it.
It is a 2.1 soundbar with 4 speaker drivers & 1 subwoofer. The total output is 120W. The subwoofer is wired & created no problem in integration. The soundbar has a 2.25-inch speaker driver & a 6.5-inch subwoofer. The SNR is 72dB. It is 32 inches wide. It has HDMI, AUX, optical, USB, and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity options. It sounds amazing.
This has an amazing heavy bass audio signature. It has heavy bass (lower & upper bass) so that you can feel the bass and Boomi. You will feel the ground is shaking. This is what you need. Boat knows this & that is why they’ve given such an audio signature. No compromise is made in highs. Highs are perfectly tuned.
If you watch a movie late at night, then there’ll be more Booming at low volume as upper bass is also increased. Otherwise, it is good.
It sounds amazing. Right now it costs around ₹8K but its right price is ₹6500. If you get it around this price, then this is one of the best soundbars at this price.
3. Boat 2000 or 2050- Best soundbar in India under 5000-10000
The best soundbar between ₹7K-₹9K is Boat 2000 or Boat 2050. They are exactly the same. One is available on Flipkart & the other is on Amazon. Their specs and output are exactly the same. Buy whichever you get at a cheaper price.
Their audio quality is amazing. They have 80W speakers & an 80W subwoofer. The total output is 160W. It has a 2.25-inch speaker driver & a 6.5-inch subwoofer. The SNR is 72dB. It has HDMI, optical, AUX, USB, and Bluetooth 5.0 support. It is 38 inches wide.
The audio quality is different from that of Boat 1500. There is a small difference but that small difference makes much difference. This audio quality has heavy bass, good mids and highs are amazingly produced.
It is because in 2050 the upper bass is reduced than it was in 1500 or 1550. Thus the lower bass is over-powered which produces amazing bass. This doesn’t create problems in both male and female vocals. You will see the difference in movie clips. This is the beauty of this soundbar. Another pro is its wireless subwoofer which means no wiring at all.
Right now it costs ₹9K. Its correct price is ₹7500. If you get it at this price, then go for it.
4. Zebronics 9000 and 9001- Best soundbar under 10000
Boat, Motorola, Samsung & Zebronics are the contenders under ₹10K soundbars and according to us, the best soundbar is Zebronics 9000 or 9001. They are the same soundbars and only their design is different. Buy the one you get at a lower price. It has speakers & tweeters of 60W. The subwoofer is 60W too. The total output is 120W. We have rated Boat 2000 & 2050 below Zebronics 9000 & 9001.
It comes with 2.75-inch speaker drivers, 1-inch 8 ohms tweeter & a 6.5-inch subwoofer. The SNR is 72dB. It supports Dolby Audio.
It has HDMI, optical, AUX, USB & Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity options. It is 32 inches wide. We don’t give weightage to Dolby Audio in this price segment to keep the competition fair. Its fantastic audio quality is because of tweeters. The 2 tweeters of 1 inch improve the audio quality. These tweeters produce high notes better than speakers. It is the work of tweeters to produce high notes. Tweeters work on high-range frequencies. Subwoofers work on low frequencies. Speakers do all sorts of work-high, mid, and low notes. In the systems without tweeters, the speakers work as tweeters. Whereas here you get speakers, tweeters, and subwoofer too.
This 120W soundbar is very clear. Audio signature- lower bass is increased. There is a sharp cut in high bass to control it. Mid notes are balanced. There is a beautiful spike in high notes due to tweeters. We guarantee no other soundbar under ₹10K gives such clarity. Another plus point- you will get some experience of virtual surround sound due to upward-firing speakers. The audio produced reaches your ears after touching the roof thereby creating the virtual effect. This is the beauty of it.
This is why we kept it above 160W Boat 2000 ₹ 2050. It costs ₹10500. The price never changes due to high demand. Buy, if you get it. This is the best with a TV with an HDMI ARC port.
