More Black Friday soundbar deals

Having spent hundreds of hours reviewing soundbars and other home audio equipment this year, we’ve now got our experts to pick out the soundbar deals they think are the cream-of-the-crop.

What soundbars are on offer this Black Friday?

Most of the big technology and audio brands are included in Black Friday – so that includes LG, Sony, Samsung, Hisense, Panasonic, Bose, Sonos and more.

When looking for a great Black Friday deal, the sweet spot will be high-end soundbars that weren’t released too recently. Any very recent releases will hold their value and are unlikely to be discounted heavily – if at all – on Black Friday. Having said that, keep an eye out. Some retailers might bring their prices way down if they’re trying to make statement and stand out from the crowd, so you might get lucky.

Away from the manufacturers themselves, there are some key retailers offering soundbar deals over this Black Friday weekend, including Amazon, Very, Currys, John Lewis, AO and Argos. It’s likely that pricing will be similar across each store as they each rush to compete with each other.

How to get a good soundbar deal on Black Friday

Black Friday is the right time to buy a soundbar. Traditionally, the best Black Friday weekend savings are made on big-ticket items, so you can save a of of money here.

When deciding how much to spend on a soundbar, it’s a good idea to weigh up what features you want the device to have.

Does it need voice controls? Do you want Dolby Vision cinematic sound? Or are you new to the soundbar market and just want a basic model to try out? Whichever spec you want to get your hands on, there’s a soundbar for you. We’ll do our best to help you find a suitable device across this piece and our best soundbar round-up.

Aside from your budget constraints and spec demands, it’s worth considering the size. Some of these devices can be quite large, so it’s worth double-checking the measurements against your TV stand or where you plan to put the soundbar.
