  3. Gavin Mendonza on May 31, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    2021, where scoop review?

  4. SmallDeekGeorge on May 31, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    I still remeber hearing Sony HT-SF150 $100 soundbar, changed my view on sound bars.

  5. alex lanning on May 31, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    buying a soundbar is like buying a yellow coloured Ferrari

  6. DarthPlagueisThewise on May 31, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    I’m here in 2021… still waiting for the sound scoops review.

  7. SloMatriX on May 31, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Review the sound scoops!

  8. Ramsey Edward on May 31, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Are the wattages mentioned for sound bars and home theater sound systems real RMS? Or are they max or peak watts? Because the TV speakers are 10 to 20 watts only while sound bars are 400!!!!

  9. Tuna Can İmece on May 31, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    Dude I bought a samsung qn90a which has 60w internal speakers and my roommate bought this soundbar with it. İt sounds worse than the tv’s internal speakers itself

  10. Carlos Franco on May 31, 2022 at 10:41 pm

    leave the review of the sound scoops in the comments

    Still waiting for the scoops review

  13. Tommy Baker on May 31, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    You want one of these from Amazon, the price is $308-, 1/26/22.

  14. Ian Lendrum on May 31, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    I have this one, I think

  15. james Scott on May 31, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    There’s enough advertising on here without you hading to it

  16. J P on May 31, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    Watch is the art display on the monitor behind Linus? Is that an app or built-in?

  17. rico567 on May 31, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    “EVERYONE” is not buying this sound bar; I didn’t.

  18. Sunny Lyndis on May 31, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    … as stupid as sound scoops look and seem I just used thick cardboard rolls to redirect my sound from my monitor (tv) until I can order speakers. At least the sound isn’t sh*t. Not the best method if you want good sound, but it’s better than the Tv itself.

  19. Alexander Matthew's on May 31, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Sound Scoops HELL YEAH give them a go

  20. street bike hunter on May 31, 2022 at 10:53 pm


  21. Konrad on May 31, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    how has he just taken that speaker to the nose and is completely unphased

  22. Carol Pack on May 31, 2022 at 10:56 pm


  23. StrosB4Hos on May 31, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    Honestly the LG sounded the clearest with less mids, the vizio sounded muffled af, just louder.

  24. Swapsrox on May 31, 2022 at 10:59 pm

    Where is that Sound Scoops review?!

  25. zap on May 31, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Sound scoop, sound scoop, sound scoop!🔂

  26. kingcrimson234 on May 31, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    I was born in the mid 80’s so I was growing up in the 90’s when home theater was starting to be all the rage. To this day, I just have to have a full on expensive HT system. Can’t do soundbars lol. Yeah it’s expensive and a pain in the ass to set up but damn do movies sound good.

  27. Yo 1Funkylady on May 31, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    I’ve been trying to find a soundbar WITHOUT any voice features or alexa…sad I can’t find one..because they listen to everything within range AND record you! You may not care about this, but I do!!! Aren’t we losing our privacy enough??????!!!

  28. Zingg on May 31, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    That sound bar sounds better than the original video

  29. krokodilen31 on May 31, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    Question why is there not thicker tvs with good inbuilt speakers?……must be the usual right……money…

  30. Douglas Adams on May 31, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    4 years later but… lol that Marylin Manson clip

  31. Matteo Sberna on May 31, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    Oooooor instead of sound scoops you can use a pair of A4 sheets , guaranteed not to color your sound since they’re white

  32. Tobias Beale on May 31, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    "people with accents" , everyone has an accent. Whilst I’m sure that you believe you don’t have an accent (it’s common to be so small minded), to me you have a heavy (an garish) metropolitan Canadian twang…
    Wouldn’t it be better if you wrote your scripts to at least appear educated and worldly.

  33. Ian Sanchez on May 31, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    he said A-L-E-X-A to not trigger you alexa devices

  34. Yatukih001 on May 31, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Hey Linus! I bought a 43 inch Acer Predator and it cost over 2000 USD despite it was used and had been returned in advance because the user felt it was too large. Connected to a less than 30 USD Logitech speaker system through my computer, it produces excellent sound effects. When used as a TV, the volume has to be put down to prevent the speaker system from being damaged. Connected to a 3000 USD PC, the end result is a powerful home theater.

  35. N Day on May 31, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Less than reasonable quality sound. Distinct dialogue – thumbs down. Ready to replace.

  36. Mr Green on May 31, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    These manufacturers knew what they were doing. How to make consumers spend more money on their products? Make thin tvs with sucky speakers to push buying a soundbar.

  37. AJ121401 JJ on May 31, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    I love how my LG is in the background. Its shitty tv speakers is the only reason I’m buying a soundbar lol

  38. Aup on May 31, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    soundscoop review maybe?

  39. GamersPlayGrounD / LiQuiDM3tH on May 31, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    and a lot of compression on its sound…

  40. FuckPutin on May 31, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    $70 for a kind-of-upgrade, geez…

  41. Joey Phillips on May 31, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    Uh oh, that didn’t age well 6:33

  42. AL on May 31, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    why are you shouting instead o talking?

  43. jleo89 on May 31, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    I thought the Sonos hit you hard!

  44. SearchingForNessie on May 31, 2022 at 11:25 pm

    I think the most interesting part about this video (for me anyways) is that your nose is made of titanium alloy. Maybe you and the terminator can have lunch one day.

  45. Ujjwal Kumar on May 31, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    why did he spelled alexa?

  46. A V on May 31, 2022 at 11:26 pm

    2021 here sound scoops all day

  47. JT Manuel on May 31, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    This is like smartphones losing their headphone jack in place og BT.

  48. MetalVII on May 31, 2022 at 11:29 pm

    We want sound scoops! – 2022

  49. Family Reunion 97 on May 31, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    Still waiting on the sound scoops review.

  50. Afrolint ln on May 31, 2022 at 11:31 pm

    I like how he makes it sound like because it’s only 75 bucks that it’s gonna be shit, it’s a fucking speaker dude, it doesn’t need to be 1000 fucking bucks to sound good or work good, jbl had good portable speakers for under a 100 that are better than tv speakers, so take that pedestal out of your ass and come back down to reality
