What sells me about these speakers though?

Sure they do come at an affordable price point for a premium soundbar but what sold me was not just how much detail I could hear through them: every instrument seemed clearer than ever before!

So whether we talking rock n roll classics like Beatles White Album to hip-hop like Wu-Tang, I’ve never heard anything sound so crisp through any speakers I have owned before.

After extensive testing with many genres including jazz, rock, hip hop, and dance I was very impressed at how effortlessly they provided pounding bass beats whilst still presenting vocals clearly; something that other speakers struggle with.
