Well technically your post wasn't specific' where mine is! Plus the URL didn't pick up as being a duplicate whilst posting so something somewhere isn't quite right?!

If this upsets you in any way feel free to report it to the Mods and they will delete it if they see fit

a wee bit off-topic but... are there any soundbars out there that can act as a transmitter as well so that i can hear my tv through bluetooth headphones or is this a dragon's den idea. and if anyone suggests a transmitter, how do you connect headphones to it or do you have to do it via your phone as some kind of hub?

Why have they discounted most of their sound bars? I picked up the Philips 40w for 38£ the other day. Not sure if I should return it and go for the 45w above.

All depends what you expect from a particular soundbar' prices are becoming a bit daft imo price war between all the manufacturers' can't really advise you either way except generally you get what you pay for with this type of equipment, if you want cheaper then there are cheaper about hence my post but as I've said in the thread be prepared to pay more for better

​They won't transmit. shove one of these in your tv's headphone jack amazon.co.uk/dp/…E85

Good price, not a good product.

Had one in a holiday let I stayed in, it was hardly any better than the TV speakers.

Neither of the Goodmans have an in built sub. If the Phillips does, then keep the Phillips. A sub is what you're looking for with a Soundbar really, wattage is very much secondary.

Had one a returned it, no better than standard TV speakers

Would not buy a 20w soundbar, especially a dodgy piece of goodmans kit. Steer clear people your TV will make better sound than this

The thing to look out for on sound bars is how many channels and separate subwoofer.
This has 2 channels which means 2 noddy speakers. You would be better off with putting computer speakers in the head phone socket for better sound and then save up for a soundbar with a separate subwoofer and 4 or 5 channels.

Not a sound bar but a soundbase, the Sony HT -XT3 does.

However its nowhere near this price point bit that said its about as far from terrible as this is in quality too.

While it is completely possible to buy Bluetooth devices that allow dual connections simultaneously, he was referring to the fact you cannot pair any device after the first pairing, example...

Pairs iPhone 5 and listens to music & everything good!.. sells iPhone 5 and gets a new iPhone 6+.............Uh OHHH he cannot pair it to the new iPhone EVER!

My advice is to go on ebay and buy yourself a old Yamaha Receiver. enjoy some real sound, 5.1 Dolby Digital at least would crush 99% of soundbars, make space its worth it.

How would this one compare, it's got a built in sub

I have only two words to describe this sound bar... the first is '****' and the second is... well, '****' too. Seriously folks, you get what you pay for with stuff like this.

no, pairing was deleted off the first device, but that did not make the goodmans any more willing to offer pairing.

I have connected multiple devices to this (not at the same time, obviously) but it really doesn't like it. Loads of faffing about required. If you're looking for good Bluetooth functionality you should look elsewhere

seen these before but, as the transmitter nor the bluetooth headphones have a screen, how do you select it, as one would with a phone... or will they just find temselves automatically?

​You need to be really close (within a foot) and switch both devices into pairing mode, there's no password, they'll just link. They'll then remember each other and you won't have to get that close again.

This thing has a terrible hiss..

You should take the cover off - make sure theirs no migrating snake inside X)

Warning dont buy if you own a SKY box.
It has major sound delay without a fix...

worth spending more on one with an inbuilt subwoofer. no real bass for movies on this one.
