Sony vs. Samsung Sound Bar Showdown

TVs are getting thinner every year, and as an unintended consequence unfortunately, so is the sound. Now more than ever, it’s important to make sure you have the right premium audio equipment to deliver the best home entertainment experience possible. A quality sound bar for example can help elevate your game viewing, movie watching, music listening – whatever you do in the living room – to the next level. The right sound bar can help add to your own personal home theater, but it’s not always easy to find the right one. With a plethora of features to choose from and to consider, it’s crucial to know what’s on the market and how each product compares.

Inputs, outputs, wireless capabilities – all things considered, some sound algorithms simply produce superior sound. Yes my friends, I said it, superior sound.

Sony recently conducted a blind sound quality comparison between the challenger, Sony’s HT-CT260 sound bar, and the top-selling, defending market champion in the under $300 class, Samsung’s HW-E450 sound bar. In an upset, the people spoke loud and clear and selected the Sony HT-CT260 sound bar as offering the better sound. The majority of people who preferred the Sony sound bar agreed that it offered a superior audio experience for movie and music content. Don’t just take my word for it – I’ve got some real life quotes for you:

“I like the crystal clear sound.”

“It sounds and looks great, and I really want one.”

“I feel like I can sit back at home, watch a movie or listen to music and just submerse myself.”

Overall top reasons for the preference of Sony’s CT260 include:

  • Better sound clarity
  • Better general sound
  • Preferred bass experience
  • Louder intense sound
  • Theater quality sound

Now that’s a beautiful thing, music to my ears, if you will. If you want to learn more about the CT260 sound bar, make sure to check out the full details here and follow the #Sonyaudio conversation online.
