The sb500 sounds great, especially for the price. Voices are much clearer and the music sounds great without being overpowered. The remote is a bit difficult to navigate. Great soundbar for voice enhancement.

The immersive av function really fills the room with great sound and there are several settings via the remote for cinema, standard etc. It has voice enhanced sound so you could hear dialog better.
The subwoofer is wireless and was connected to the soundbar right out of the box. Set up was very easy and the connectivity is great. It takes a while to charge the battery.
This is a great unit if you do not have the space or need for a full 5 or 7 speaker system. This can easily take the place of bulkier or more complicated units. The base is thunderous without succumbing to vibration.
Audio from the soundbar is tinny and doesn't have much depth. My 150 doller tcl alto8i has better clearer louder dialog than this 600 dollar sound bar. Virtual surround sound is trash.
There's no wifi if that's important to you. Customer service is useless. Absolutely useless and defective.
The subwoofer is'meh' with some rumble but nothing to wow you. Bass is almost non existent unless the volume is above 50%. All treble and bass, washed out mids.
