Some of the best Prime Day soundbar deals are still available, even though the big event itself is now over. Whether you're looking for a small and cheap TV audio upgrade to add clarity, or you want a powerful and immersive Dolby Atmos soundbar, there are still options to grab a great discount.

Typically, many of the best Prime Day deals revolve around soundbars, and this year is no different – we were especially impressed by the 5-star Samsung HW-Q700B Dolby Atmos soundbar for just $367.99, but that deals' over – though you can still get the compact Yamaha SR-B20A soundbar for just $149.95 at Amazon.

The best soundbars make such a huge difference to watching movies or TV, or playing games. From power for blockbuster action to clearer speech in rom-coms or dramas, everything is better with an audio upgrade. And soundbars are so easy to use – just plug them into the TV and go. These remaining offers might be your best chance to get a cheap offer between now and when the Black Friday deals begin.

Bose Smart Soundbar 300: was $449

Bose Smart Soundbar 300: was $449 now $294 at Amazon
With five drivers, this packs a lot of sound into a small bar – and rather than focusing on 'virtual' Dolby Atmos or other tricks, they're all just focused on delivering clarity and a wider soundstage. It connects to your TV over HDMI or optical, and there's Bluetooth for listening to music. We haven't tested this bar, but we gave its big brother five stars in our Bose Smart Soundbar 600 review, so we think this is likely to be a great TV audio upgrade for the price. This is the cheapest it's ever been, too.

LG S80QY 3.1.3-channel soundbar: was $899.99

LG S80QY 3.1.3-channel soundbar: was $899.99 now $446.99 at Amazon
Amazon has some great Prime Day deals going on LG’s Dolby Atmos soundbars, but the one that caught our eye is this 50% discount on the S80QY, a 3.1.3-channel model from 2022. When we reviewed the S80QY, we found it to have a solid set of features for the cost, including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X processing plus an upfiring center channel speaker that helped elevate dialogue to screen level. It sounded good for the money then, and at this price it’s an amazing deal.

Sony HT-A5000: was $999

Sony HT-A5000: was $999 now $698 at Amazon
A competitor to the Sonos Arc, this soundbar packs Dolby Atmos sound from real upfiring and side-firing speakers, with Sony's excellent processing tech helping to make sure it gives strong positional sound from a single bar. With no subwoofer, it's designed be as simple and big-sounding as possible. One of the best features here is HDMI 2.1, including passthrough for 4K 120Hz signals, making this Sony ideal for gaming.

Sony HT-A3000: was $699.99

Sony HT-A3000: was $699.99 now $498 at Amazon
The goal of this soundbar is to basically be a smaller, cheaper Sonos Arc – so you get Dolby Atmos sound from a single bar with no subwoofer, but that that still has good bass. It has 3.1 channels of sound, but uses virtualization to make that sound like even more – something Sony is very effective at, in our experience. We don't have a full review of this soundbar, but if you want an all-in-one bar with great clarity, Sony is always good for that. This price is the joint-lowest it's been – it usually drops to this price for sales events.

Yamaha SR-B20A: was $199.95

Yamaha SR-B20A: was $199.95 now $149.95 at Amazon
Looking for a small, simple and great home theater upgrade? Yamaha makes excellent soundbars, and we rated this one highly in our Yamaha SR-B20A review for delivering clearer, fuller, more exciting sound than a TV alone can. There's no separate subwoofer here – it's a compact all-in-one box.

Samsung HW-B650: was $397.99

Samsung HW-B650: was $397.99 now $217.99 at Amazon
This is a 3.1-channel soundbar designed for big, clear sound, with a dedicated center speaker for bass, left and right speakers for width, plus a subwoofer for bass. We haven't tested it, but we couldn't rate the Samsung HW-Q700B that sits just above it in Samsung's range higher. The only caveat is there's no Dolby Atmos, but if you're not bothered about that, it looks like a killer deal at 45% off.

Samsung HW-S800B: was £569

Samsung HW-S800B: was £569 now £332.49 at Amazon
This ultra-slim soundbar somehow offers incredible Dolby Atmos positional sound – it's up there with the high-end stuff – yet it takes up about a quarter of the volume of the Sonos Arc. Its minimalist design will make it a much more popular option than the Arc for a lot of living rooms, and it deserves to be popular, as our full Samsung HW-S800B review says. And this is the cheapest it's ever been – as long as your TV is 55 inches or up, and you don't need an HDMI passthrough port, this is a fantastic deal.

Denon DHT-S216: was £199

Denon DHT-S216: was £199 now £149 at Amazon
A simple budget soundbar with HDMI passthrough (so you don't lose the use of an HDMI port by connecting it to your TV), we rated this highly in our Denon DHT-S216 review. It doesn't have fancy tech, but is just about getting big, clear sound from a single box – and it's a great deal at this price.

Samsung HW-Q990B: was £1,299

Samsung HW-Q990B: was £1,299 now £849 at Amazon
In our best soundbars guide, we rate this as the best option for creating a totally immersive Dolby Atmos bubble of sound. Nothing does it better, thanks to 16 channels in total – its truly like a full home cinema from four boxes, as our Samsung HW-Q990B review explains. And this is basically the cheapest it's ever been (we've seen it for about £30 less in the past). What a deal.

When did Amazon Prime soundbar deals end?

Amazon Prime Day ran from July 11 to July 12 2023, so most deals finished at midnight on the second day. However, not everything is an 'official' Prime Day deal, which means plenty of stuff is still available after the deadline.

Do you need Amazon Prime to get these deals?

Pretty much, yep. The thing about Prime Day is that Amazon would really like you to go ahead and subscribe to Amazon Prime, so it keeps these deals for Prime members only.

The good news is that you can get a free trial of Prime in order to get the deals, and then you could cancel it and forget it ever happened, if you want. And, we have to note, that there are often deals available on Prime Day that aren't just for Prime members – they're usually 'unofficial' deals from companies just jumping on the price-cutting bandwagon, and won't be the real blockbuster deals, but they're around.
