Do they support EARC??


Is a soundbar ever going to make full use of that? If you have a 7.2.4 setup, then maybe, but there's no way anyone will hear a noticeable difference on a soundbar.
Any reasonable (High Speed) HDMI with Ethernet cable should support EARC. Your existing cables will probably work fine. To support the other features of HDMI 2.1 in the future you will need cables described as Ultra High Speed.

Both your TV & soundbar would need to be compatible with EARC to gain the benefits of the technology.

”Ultra High Speed HDMI Cables are designed to support the new eARC feature in addition to the highest resolution video modes. The Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet and the High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet will also support eARC.“
