Unboxing the HT-G700 Soundbar

Unboxing the Sony soundbar is as easy as it sounds. The shipment box with branding all over it came well-packed, and delivered the device in great condition. And the subwoofer came in a separate but well-packed box.

We didn’t need help opening the box, but found numerous packaging materials. Upon opening, we found a soundbar itself, a power cable, a remote control, and a manual guide.

Subwoofer was separately packed in a sturdy box and had nothing else with it.

Size and Design

Size and Design of Sony HT-G700

The Sony HT-G700 Soundbar has a flexible and aesthetic profile with black coating and grilled texture covering the entire body. The exterior is constructed with high-quality and durable materials, built to last.

Also, the overall profile is compact, weighing only 24.4 pounds. We believe it wouldn’t test your patience in handling and setting up the device. Also, we suggest you mount it under your 40-inch smart TV as the low-profile design can upscale the environment with its design and heavy sound output.

Channel System

The Sony HT-G700 has a 3.1-channel system that provides powerful sound with clear dialogue, deep bass, and wide stereo separation. All the built-in speakers combine to produce high-resolution sound with excellent harmony to create a cinematic vibe.

The soundbar’s compact size belies its powerful audio capabilities, and its advanced technology with dual full-range speakers ensures you get an immersive listening experience with every use.

Moreover, this channel configuration suggests the soundbar contains a center channel and a woofer speaker for a bass touch. However, the HT-G700 kit has an external wireless subwoofer that focuses solely on bass reproduction.

Connectivity Options

Connectivity Options of sony HT-G700 soundbar

The Sony HT-G700 soundbar offers a wide range of connectivity sources, making it flexible enough to use with different devices at your homes and offices and make the most out of it.

 All the connectivity inputs are located at the rear panel, so it may not cause distractions with the cables. You’ll get HDMI ARC input and output, USB, and optical digital for seamless connectivity with devices.

Moreover, the Bluetooth addition is not surprising, but definitely impressive because that allows you to listen to your favorite content without relying on cables. It also makes it a plug-and-play device to catch up on podcasts, eBooks, or your favorite tracks.

Controlling and Navigation

Sony never compromises on providing an excellent user experience and offers seamless options to control and navigate its devices. Also, Sony soundbars come with a user-friendly interface, and one wouldn’t need to be a technical expert to operate them.

Since it is a budget-friendly soundbar, we didn’t get voice control support that uses voice commands to operate the device. However, a remote control is convenient enough to use in the middle of the scene to manage the volume, pause or rewind the actions, or manage the connections.

Sound Performance

The Sony HT-G700 soundbar is designed to produce loud, powerful, and immersive sound and delivers on its promises. The soundbar’s 3.1-channel system with wireless subwoofer delivers powerful surround sound of 400W that goes well with a diversity of content.

Moreover, the Dolby Atmos and DTS compatibility enriches sound production and makes you feel like the actions are happening in your surroundings. Besides, the dialogue delivery is clear and crisp, but the vocal enhancement function further polishes them.

Nonetheless, the wireless subwoofer never steps behind and reproduces powerful low frequencies for the rich, thrilling, and punchy bass. It may take time to break in, but once it starts hitting the notes, there’s no going back.
