‘I hear every word now’: This compact soundbar is down to an ear-resistible $36

When you curl up to watch your favorite show, do you opt for closed captions, even when the dialogue’s in English?

The top-selling Majority Bowfell TV Soundbar has been marked down at Amazon, so now’s a great time to form a healthier relationship with your remote’s volume button.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

This incredibly affordable, wildly popular model — hailed as the “best little soundbar” — has a five-star rating from over 15,000 reviewers, and it’s one of the top entry-level soundbars on the market. At this price, it’s an absolute steal. Sure, it’s been marked down more in the past, but even at full price, this is more than worth it.

Why do I need this? 🤔

You’ve got the high-definition picture. Why settle for inferior sound? This soundbar, only 15 inches wide, has a small footprint but big audio. With a built-in subwoofer, it blasts out 50 watts of power. This means you’ll get crystal-clear dialogue without cranking the TV’s volume to eardrum-splitting levels. Sleek and understated, it’s also a breeze to use and blends seamlessly into an entertainment setup.

Of course, sometimes you do really want to crank it up, and the Bowfell knows how to handle that. It has three modes: one for movies, one for dialogue and one for music. Just press a button on the included remote and it automatically adjusts levels to the mode you pick, no tinkering needed. The Bowfell will boost music, amp up the excitement in action scenes and bring dialogue to the front, for ultimate clarity.

Setting up the Majority Bowfell TV Soundbar is easy: Just plug it into your TV’s RCA or optical digital port and you’re good to go. It also has a USB port and Bluetooth capabilities, so you can enjoy playlists via flash drive, phone, laptop or tablet.


Tired of pausing and rewinding to decipher dialogue? Upgrade your audio with this slim soundbar. (Amazon)

What reviewers say 💬

See why more than 15,000 five-star shoppers swear by this deceptively small soundbar.

Pros 👍

Fans love the sound quality, comparing it to going to the movies. “I can’t believe how great this little speaker bar is,” raved a satisfied shopper. “I wanted something to be able to listen to Amazon Music and Spotify apps on my Roku, so I didn’t have to plug a phone or Fire tablet into my stereo. Wow, was I surprised at how good this sounded. Then, my family watched a movie and we were thrilled at the theater-quality sound in our little living room.”

This soundbar is also great news for family members with hearing issues. “Grandma had to blast the TV because she couldn’t understand the dialogue, while the background sounds and music were really loud,” shared a five-star reviewer. “So we bought this inexpensive speaker, and it works great and solved the problem.”

“Much better than the cheesy TV speakers,” said a third fan. “It’s not a top-of-the-line soundbar that normally costs hundreds of dollars and that you can hear what’s playing around the whole house, but if you’re looking for a soundbar that is perfect for a bedroom and that sounds good, this is it. I especially love how small it is. … It was very easy to connect, no issues whatsoever.”

Said another buyer: “I have a small TV in my RV, and if the air is on, you can barely hear it. If the generator is also going, forget it. I turned on the generator, plugged this in, pressed the correct mode button, and wow: The sound is beautiful. I can hear every word now and the sound is rich and clear for movies.”

Cons 👎

One nominee for kid of the year said, “Bought this for my dad who is hard of hearing. We were blown away by the improvement in sound quality over the built-in speakers. He says it’s enjoyable to watch TV again. The only downside (other than having an additional remote to keep track of) is that it doesn’t remember what volume it was set at between uses.”

Another user ran into some potentially irritating audio sync issues. “No complaints, except when using the Bluetooth connection. I found it impossible to sync the audio and video, and every time I changed the station, I had to start all over again.”


With a 50-watt output and dual stereo speakers, this small but mighty soundbar delivers an immersive audio experience.
