The trouble with flat screen tv’s, the speakers are naff. The soundbar will enhance all sound frequencies to give a louder, fuller sound, and is especially more noticeable in the bass range. This can be placed underneath the tv or wall mounted, brackets are included but not fixings. This can be connected via hdmi if your tv has arc abilities or via an optical cable. It is also bluetooth enabled so you can play sound direct from your mobile device. This is a long soundbar, much wider than my 42” sony. I do not have my tv wall mounted and is on a cabinet, with tivo, now tv box & ps4 underneath and amazon fire stick on the side. The last thing i want is another remote to hold, so decided to connect via hdmi to use the tv volume buttons on the remote to control sound. There is a big sound difference with bass, great for watching movies. However, for standard tv, found that the bass was too much and standard vocals were muffled.
Right size for a 32″ tv can use tv hand set when hdmi connected.
I like this sharp sound bar, it fit nicely along side my 49″ television. The slim low profile is just 6cm which allows the sound bar to fit neatly underneath the screen of my and most tvs. Without obscuring the picture. This sharps sound bar is compatible with any television that has a hdmi, digital optical audio (s/pdif) or 3. 5mm auxiliary (aux) connection, making it a handy bit of kit. The bluetooth-in function allows you to wirelessly stream all your audio content from your smart tv, tablet and mobile, in fact any bluetooth enabled smart device will work well with this item. I connected my devices to the sound bar in minutes and have had no issues with the sound bars performance. In my opinion the sound produced is super compared to the price of the bar. In the average living room with average wall thickness, i would say that if you need a sound bar that won’t have your neighbours calling out the sound police every time you switch on you television or music, then this sharps sound bar will tick all your boxes, therefore it’s 4* from me folks.
Dissappointed in the volume, but otherwise ok.
- Dialogue sound not the best.
- Amazing for the price
- Replaced for blown plasma tv speakers

The sound from my tv was driving me up the wall.
There are definitely going to be situations where this is a good choice but none come to mind immediately. For the money it’s good enough, but compared to the sound from the 4 or 5 year old lg smart 40″ tv that i have, there isn’t that much of a difference. If you have a cheaper tv, or one that’s physically smaller (the bigger the tv it tends to be the larger the speakers they can sneak in) and have been suffering from weedy sound or mumbled dialogue then it could improve both volume and clarity. But, for just a few quid more you can get essentially the same thing with a sub-woofer which will really round out the bass notes.
Well i run my tv though a amp with 5. 1 system all good but not for when you want to just watch a bit of tv without turning on everything, as my plasma tv is old so the speakers have now blown but the screen is fine, the answer is this sound bar, its not the best but for the money its great for 70 pounds its cheaper than a new tv. Ive found no problems setting it up even the bluetooth to my samsung s9 was so easy, no passcode, just found saved then play from phone easy. Ive contected it with a rca to phone for my tv as my optical out is going to my amp system, there is some modes news movie music not played much with these and to be honest i wont as if i need that i would turn on my 5. So all in all if are looking for a bar thats as big as a 49in tv this would fit just any smaller tv the speaker would be bigger. Ive put mine on top of my tv and held it on with duck tape, it does come with some brackets for the wall but my tv isnt that close so i will have to make brackets that will allow me have it on top of the tv without the tape. For a cheapish sound bar for a old tv its great with good bass and clean sound.
The sound bar has a substantial weight and the build quality is good. For connections you get hdmi arc, optical, 3. Unlike some of sharp’s other models, you actually get an led display, which allows you to see the volume level instead of just hearing it. On the unit the controls are on the side though, which i’m not keen on. The bar is a bit too long for smaller tv screens in my opinion. The audio quality is decent, but not great. The main problem is a lack of bass. It’s just not possible to get substantial bass from a single unit like this, not for this kind of price at any rate.
Excellent product, easy to set up and great sound.
Great product, does what it says.
Enjoying some nice sound quality paired to my phone and playing pavarotti’s hits. Decided not to add to the tv as need to acquire cables and not really bothered with extra sound output as i have to juggle 2 remotes already depending on whether ordinary or hd channel. But i do like paired with my phone, which was really easy to do. This means i can move the speaker around the house and even outside to enjoy music. Only disappointment is the range of the remote – it doesn’t reach from my sofa to the speaker on the opposite side of the room, just 7 feet. I have to get up and halve the distance. That could be inconvenient anytime i have to instantly mute, e. To take a phone call or speak to someone coming in the room. Before buying, do take notice of the measurements and check against your preferred location – it is quite long.
Good bass from a small soundbar. Remote doesn’t always respond.
Didn’t want a large sound bar so looked at this model, it sits underneath our tv fine. We used an optical lead to feed it. The remote does need to be quite close to operate. Otherwise it’s neat and looks ok. We purchased a sound bar to overcome some poor voice reproduction on tv programs which it has done. I would say this is an entry model.
Great size and quality for the cost. Have added it to my 32″ kitchen tv and it’s perfect. This tv is a cheap jvc and the sound quality is rank without extra speakers. Much improved and sits below the screen unlike the previous goodmans soundbar we had been using. Although obviously a budget 2. 1 model this is a step up in quality to the previous one.
Very good quality/price ratio. Amazing loud bass, good quality speaker for large rooms. I have smaller bose solo 5 for the living room and these for the kitchen/dining room/patio. Sound quality is not as good as bose by far. But much better than other cheap speakers. Edit: i had to update my review. Speakers are really hard to set up with your phone on bluetooth.
Regardless of how much you pay for your tv these days if it’s a slimline flat screen i will almost guarantee that the sound will only be so-so, so most tv’s benefit from using a sound bar that either connects via hdmi (if you’ve enough sockets) or via an optical connection. It has a good range; from a deep base to a pretty decent treble. Sound quality is also pretty good for the price range and is clear and in synch with the tv. It is quite long and as a result may not fit some tv units, however, if you’re using it with a larger tv (50″+) you should be ok. The only other issue i could see with it is that it is quite deep so you may have to raise your tv to be able to use the tv remote, not a problem if the tv is wall mounted though as this soundbar would sit on a shelf below. You can bluetooth it to other devices, but not something i would do personally. It also doesn’t supply surround sound, even virtual surround sound, so if you want that as part of your viewing experience you may have to choose a different soundbar. Good value for the price and suitable for someone on a budget who wants to improve the sound from their tv.
This is a nicely designed, compact black soundbar. Measuring just 65cms long and 6cms high, it will suit an environment where space is at a premium, particularly as this can be quickly and easily wall mounted. As sound bars go this is at the cheaper end of the market, but it will provide you with an upgrade on flat screen tvs from the lower end of the budget range. Set up is simplicity itself, and if you want to wall mount you only need 2 screws in the wall and the bar merely slots over the screw heads, no complicated mounting here. There are both optical and hdmi inputs, which are the recommended connections, but also usb and line in as well as bluetooth connectivity. Make your connections and plug in the power and switch on, its as simple as that. Controls (on/off, mode, volume) are on one end of the bar, or there’s a remote control and there’s a single light source on the front of the unit which indicates the modeas for the sound, the remote will allow you to switch between music, movie and news modes, so you can at least customise the sound to some degree and the 110w output should be enough for most. As for the sound, its not perfect, at the extremes, both treble and bass lost clarity, but let’s be clear here this is a budget unit, so the sound is perfectly adequate at this price point.
In general the price of soundbar systems have got more affordable over the past couple of years. This sharp ht-sb150 is a lower priced but affordable product. The first thing that is striking is that it is designed for the larger sized tv, outsized for anything less then 49”. The box it arrives in is long. Wiring in is straight forward with a hdmi cable though there is an optical socket, a line in jack and of course the power supply. There is also a usb socket but this is to be used to upgrade the device and cannot be used for charging. The sound bar has an led display on the front showing connectivity, there is a standby switch, source switch and volume control on one end of the device. The remote control is basic and feels a bit cheap but considering the price point of the product i’d not be expecting something gold plated. There is a preset equaliser button with movie , music and news. Bluetooth paring is straight forward using either the buttons on the sound bar or the remote control.
Bought this to use in the boardroom of our head office in the av set up. It is the best £80 i’ve spent, the sound quality is superb, easily filling a 30ft long room with sound.
Good value, good high range sound but form factor limits bass output and response. Connects well to tv or other sound sources, works well for smaller tvs who lack much bass output but didn’t add much to the sound experience of a larger tv’s native speakers. Very easy to use and work with.
This item was purchased to attach to a toshiba 32′ tv. It improves the sound from the tv vastly. Simple to connect and operate. I am very satisfied with it.
This relatively inexpensive soundbar has a number of attractive features, notably its connection 7 cm height that means it can be placed in front of television sets without obscuring the sensor: a problem with taller soundbars. Also it comes with a hdmi connection which allows one to use the volume control on the television, an advantage to those who sometimes forget and don’t use the remote to alter the volume. It is very easy to set up: i chose the optical connection as the easiest of the three, but there are bluetooth and hdmi alternatives. I found the sound rather boxy, with a note of harshness in its projection of voices. Possibly this is the result of the slimline character of the sandbar, allowing for relatively small speakers. The equalisation feature made no real difference to the sound in movies news broadcasts and music, but i will admit that i have to the ears. For another £20 or so, there are soundbars with better quality sound available, hence my award of three stars.
