Bose Smart Soundbar 600 Review


The Bose Smart Soundbar 600 ($499) packs impressive technology into a compact design. Notably, it adds height channels to the standard left-center-right driver arrangement, creating a large sound field with excellent spatial audio imaging. It also...

Highs can sound harsh Weak bass output

Needs More Boom The Bose Smart Soundbar 600 is a technically impressive soundbar considering the large audio field it can generate. The wide-firing mains and upward-firing height channels help create a wide sonic signature that impresses more so with...

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 Review: All This and Great Sound, Too


the Bose Smart Soundbar 600. This TV speaker features all the things most people care most about -- excellent sound quality, wide format support, even voice control -- and it does so for a much more affordable price. It also offers HDMI connectivity...

Compact Excellent sound quality Dedicated height speakers

Not very dynamic Bose ecosystem lags behind Sonos

Ever since Sonos began, competitors have tried to fashion their own versions of the company's speakers. Yes, the Bose Smart Soundbar 600 is eerily similar to the Sonos Beam in size, price and capability. Yet it's still able to offer a different spin...

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 Soundbar Review


The Bose Smart Soundbar 600 is a 3.0.2 setup with the same size and shape as the Bose Smart Soundbar 300. It adds Dolby Atmos capabilities, meaning you can enjoy height content on many different streaming platforms and Blu-rays. Even if you're watching...

Dolby Atmos support. Separate sub and satellites available.

No EQ. Lacks low-bass.

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 review: small size, big sonics, believable Atmos


This smaller-scale soundbar delivers true Dolby Atmos 3D sound decoding with height channels, and it's rather capable indeed...

Organised, confident and expansive sound ; Compact and well made ; Easy to integrate into a bigger system

Not quite as adept with sub-Dolby Atmos content ; Some very strong competition ; Wall-bracket costs extra

Big sound from a small soundbar can only be a good thing, right? And when that sound is an authentic Dolby Atmos soundtrack, the Bose Soundbar 600 is capable of delivering big, immersive sound. It’s by no means your only choice at this sort of money,...

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 review


An affordable soundbar with real Dolby Atmos

Compact, attractive design ; Dolby Atmos with up-firing speakers ; Extensive streaming options ; Easy, app-based setup

Single HDMI port ; Limited bass ; Basic front-panel display ; No DTS:X support

The Bose Smart Soundbary 600 delivers big Dolby Atmos sound from a compact design. Dialogue clarity is excellent, and while it doesn’t hit the low bass notes that other soundbar systems with an included subwoofer manage, it offers up consistently...

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 review: Small soundbar, big Atmos sound


Bose's most compact soundbar yet goes big on spatial audio. But how does it stack up to its very capable competition?

Warm, detailed sound works well with Atmos soundtracks ; Well-made, stylish and compact design ; Easy setup ; Extensive connectivity options

Can't turn off TrueSpace, and it's not always convincing ; Lower bass is lacking ; Wall bracket comes at an additional cost

The Bose Smart Soundbar 600 delivers big Dolby Atmos sound but falls short in some aspects, and its insistance on spatial audio when it isn't always convincing might be frustrating. However, its compelling feature set helps to make up for this, making...

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 review: What you want versus what you need | Expert Reviews


The Bose Smart Soundbar 600 delivers big, immersive Dolby Atmos audio but is less convincing when handling non-Atmos content

Unified, confident and eloquent Atmos ; Well made and usefully compact ; Easy to integrate into a bigger system

Non-Atmos content isn’t as coherent ; Wall bracket is a cost option ; Plenty of worthwhile alternatives

If every soundtrack was a Dolby Atmos soundtrack, it would be hard to find meaningful fault with the Bose Smart Soundbar 600 given its price and physical dimensions. It’s a bigger and more confident listen than any number of nominal rivals, it has...

Bose Smart Soundbar 600 review: small size, big sound


Authentic Atmos audio from a compact single unit sound bar? Yep, the Bose Smart Soundbar 600 can indeed deliver

Up-firing speakers add genuine height to TV and movies ; Upscales non-Atmos content ; Minimalist design ; Impressive Alexa compatibility

Bass is a little lacking ; Not all non-Atmos content sounds convincing with TrueSpace ; No built-in Google Assistant ; Forces you to create a Bose account to use app features

With its (real) Dolby Atmos audio credentials, this is one of the best small soundbars around
