Bose Soundtouch 300 vs Sonos Playbar
These two models are compared to each other very frequently. This is likely due to their pricing, with most stores selling them at exactly the same price. Let’s look at both of the models separately so we can decipher which one of them might prove to be better for your circumstance.
Bose Soundtouch 300
It was rumoured that the Bose Soundtouch range was going to be discontinued last year, which would be a massive negative for the product. However, Bose actually confirmed that whilst they’re probably not bringing out any new models under the Soundtouch brand, they are still providing full support for the products they’ve sold.
Overall, the Bose Soundtouch 300 definitely isn’t a bad soundbar, but it doesn’t compete well against other brands and especially agains the 700. Let’s look at some pros and cons of this device.
Many people would agree that Sonos and other brands like it have rocked Bose world a little bit in terms of their consumer speaker solutions. Most audiophiles won’y by Bose anyway, but they’ve been the consumers number 1 brand for a lot time now.
However in recent years, this has definitely changed quite a bit in the speaker industry, with brands like Sonos becoming more and more popular.
Update: It seems that the Sonos Playbar and the Sonos Playbase have been discontinued by Sonos as of 2020. They’re keep providing support for the product, but they’re not manufacturing any more of these models.
The reason? I guess it’s all down to supply and demand. The product itself is actually pretty good, but there’s probably not that many people that was to pay this kind of price for a soundbar. So, it’s another one that bites the dust.
The Sonos Playbar is one of the best wireless soundbars that you can find on the current market. I know – it’s not like the wireless soundbar market is filled with different options! But, it’s one of the better choices.
It offers great sound quality, and it’s really easy to set your soundbar up and get going. Let’s look at the pros and cons of the Sonos Playbar.
In conclusion, both of these models are not bad for those looking for a wireless soundbar. They are both pretty expensive solutions to your home audio requirements, and it really depends what you’re looking for.
Out of the two, the Sonos Playbar is the better choice. It offers better sound overall, which for me is the deciding factor in this matter. The Soundtouch 300 isn’t a bad choice, but like all Bose speakers, it’s probably a little overpriced.
