What will you listen to with the Sonos Ray sound bar? Install this sound bar with your TV for incredible sound and crystal-clear dialogue from your favourite movies or TV series. You can also stream music, podcasts, or any other audio from your smart devices (phones, tablets, smart assistants). Adding a sound bar to your setup can make any audio you listen to clearer and more enjoyable. Read on to learn more about the things you can enjoy with a Sonos Ray sound bar and enter for a chance to win a new one for your home.

What content can you enjoy better with a Sonos Ray sound bar

Most of us view sound bars as a speaker or set of speakers contained in a long thin design that will complement your TV. Often these are selected to boost the audio profile of a modern flat-screen TV. Built-in TV speakers have a reputation for less than optimum quality sound. The problem is simply, the thinner the panel and bezel, the less space exists for built-in speakers capable of impressive sound quality. Adding a sound bar to your home entertainment setup can enhance your listening experience—whatever you’re listening to on the television will sound better. However, a versatile sound bar like the Sonos Ray can boost a wider range of content than you might think.

Movies and TV shows

Sound plays a big part in the effectiveness of how stories are delivered in movies and TV shows. A well constructed scene combines dialogue, sound effects, and a musical soundtrack. The synergy of these sound elements creates a perfect cinematic experience—only if you have the right speaker system.

I’ve experienced watching a movie with dialogue too soft to hear, drowned out by the other audio components. If I crank up the volume then the sound effects (e.g., a helicopter sound) become deafening. Having to constantly adjust the volume when this happens just takes me out of the experience. The Sonos Ray can help with this. It is designed to selectively boost dialogue and bass so you can simply enjoy what you are watching.

Music

Classical or pop? Country or hip-hop? Music of all styles can be complex and a challenge for an audio system to faithfully reproduce. With the combination of musical instruments, melodies, voices, lyrics, and more, not a lot of speakers (more so your TV speakers) can carry out sound as good as it should be. With the right audio device, music can take you to places no other form of media can.

Listen to music for a nice relaxing day at home, or a nice candlelight dinner with a loved one, and let a great sound bar transport you along with your favourite tune.

Podcasts

Listening to podcasts is a great way to keep yourself entertained and informed. There are podcasts on a wide range of topics: from news, to politics, history, culture, entertainment, and many more. What I like about listening to podcasts is the fun and creative way their creators deliver information and stories, often with the help of a little intriguing background music.

With a simple search on the internet or specifically on your favourite podcast apps you’ll quickly find one that captures your interest. And if you have a Sonos sound bar, you can stream it from your phone or tablet and listen while you prepare dinner or move around the house cleaning.

Games

Sound elicits response—more so when it comes to interactive media such as gaming. Many of today’s most exciting games take you to a different world which allows gamers to dive in. Games use visual and sound effects to create an immersive experience. Sound effectively carries the narrative, defines the space, sets the mood, and brings you into the action. Adding a sound bar to your gaming setup can help boost the audio by projecting sound from wall to wall to allow for a more immersive gaming experience.

Natural soundscapes

The simple sounds of nature can help reduce stress. And you can fill your home with these using a Sonos sound bar. Transform any space into a soothing landscape with the sound of falling rain, river current, birds chirping, leaves rustling, and many more. Natural soundscapes create a peaceful mood, free from the distraction of everyday noises.

There is a wide variety of soundscapes you can play from many video and music streaming apps. You can find many intended for meditation, focus while doing work, or even induce sleep.
