Bose Smart Soundbar 900 review

 

Bose throws its hat into the Dolby Atmos ring with the Smart Soundbar 900

Expansive breadth ; Sleek design ; Clear vocal projection

No DTS support ; Noticeably processed sound ; Not as Atmos-y as the best

An impressively wide-sounding, articulate and crisp Dolby Atmos soundbar, but it occasionally lacks tonal consistency and authenticity

Bose Smart Soundbar 900 review: Looks great, but does it sound great?

 

The 900 adds upfiring speakers and Dolby Atmos support, which lacked in the outgoing 700 model, for even more immersive output. Just how good is it?

Bold and bright sound - it's also great for music ; Ease of use with HDMI eARC ; ADAPTiQ room calibration ; Built-in Alexa voice control ; Dolby Atmos object-based decoding adds to expansive soundstage

Reflective glass top catches light from TV ; Expensive - especially if considering all accessories ; No additional HDMI input for passthrough ; Not capable of lowest bass output ; No DTS:X support ; Power cable too short (just 1.4m)

Perhaps the best-looking soundbar on the market right now - Bose is clearly taking the fight to Sonos - the aesthetic is also its downfall, given the reflective nature of the glass top. Still, this model is a notable improvement on the outgoing 700...

Bose Smart Soundbar 900 review: Adds Atmos immersion for $100 more

 

Bose's first Dolby Atmos soundbar, the Smart Soundbar 900, goes head-to-head with the Sonos Arc -- and the results may surprise you.

Elegant design ; Good Dolby Atmos effects ; Excellent music quality ; Handy TV voice control ; Private listening headphone sync

Only one HDMI port ; Basic, non-backlit remote ; Limited support for Android

“The Smart Soundbar 900 adds Dolby Atmos for only $100 more, making it a superb choice for a single-speaker home theater sound system.”

Bose Smart Soundbar 900 Review

No auto-volume mode. Lacks low-bass. Mediocre surrounds performance.

The Bose Smart Soundbar 900 is good for mixed usage. Thanks to its ADAPTiQ feature, it can automatically optimize audio reproduction based on your space. It has a neutral sound profile suitable for lots of types of audio content. It supports Dolby...
