Hisense Announces A Trio of Soundbars

In addition to its LED/LCD, Dual Cell LCD, and Laser TVs, Hisense also makes a lot of other products, including soundbars. Check out the latest entries in their soundbar line and see if one is right for you.

Hisense HS219 Soundbar Lifestyle

If you’ve been paying attention to the home theater space in 2021, it’s become apparent that Hisense are making some strategic moves into specific categories and with new significant partners. LG and Samsung are likely to lose some marketshare on the bottom end to this Chinese manufacturer which now has manufacturing facilities in China, South America, India, South Africa and Europe.

In addition to LED/LCD, Dual Cell LCD, and Laser TVs, Hisense also makes a line of soundbars. Here are their latest models, the HS212F, HS219, and HS312.

All three soundbars include the following features:

Easy Connectivity: All Hisense soundbars connect to TVs using HDMI-ARC/eARC connectivity. In addition, digital optical and analog (3.5mm) are also provided as alternatives. 

Bluetooth: All the soundbars include Bluetooth pairing which allows you to stream music from compatible smartphones. 

Music file Compatibility (Bluetooth or USB): WAV(48K)/WMA/MP3/FLAC.

Quick Touch EQ Modes: This allows users to optimize sound quality using preset Movie, Music, News, Sports, and Night modes.

Roku TV Ready: Hisense soundbars can be used with almost any TV. However, if you own a Roku TV and connect it to a Roku TV Ready Soundbar (such as the Hisense models) via the TV’s HDMI-ARC/eARC connection, the soundbar setup process starts automatically via onscreen prompts that appear on the TV screen. Once setup is completed, users can control both the TV and soundbar using the Roku TV’s remote and the Roku TV’s on-screen menu, including the soundbar’s own preset sound modes and other audio settings. 

EzPlay™: This allows users to control their soundbars with Hisense U7, U8, and U9 Series TV remotes.

Wireless Subwoofer: A dedicated, wireless subwoofer is included for an enhanced low-frequency response. 

Included Accessories: Remote control, HDMI cable, digital optical cable, soundbar power cable, subwoofer power cable, wall mounting kit, and user guides.
