Detailed and sharp audio
Usually going for $180, the TV soundbar features robust, crystal-clear audio that can easily fill up a room.

And thanks to four modes of audio, everything from movies, TV shows to your favorite music and podcasts will sound incredible.
The Pheanoo attaches to your TV via HDMI (ARC) or digital optical port, but it can also connect with RCA cables and a standard 3.5mm stereo jack. Thanks to Bluetooth 5.0, you can sync your smartphone, tablet or laptop to it. Got Bluetooth headphones? You can pair them for private listening. It even comes with a subwoofer for deeper bass and a handy remote.
"I had no idea how good the quality would have been with this soundbar, but wow," raved a five star reviewer. "Using my Fire TV Stick and the sound was incredible....The subwoofer is great as well. The sound fills the room perfectly...I highly recommend this to anyone..."
At 34 inches long, the Pheanoo P28 TV Soundbar is the ideal size for 40-to-65-inch TVs. Amazon reviewers are raving about it; some even say it rivals those from top-name brands.
"The speakers are great for movies and music, the sound is crisp and clear," shared a delighted Amazon shopper. "This was better than my old Sony speakers and I’m glad I bought this soundbar instead of (having) a sudden urge to buy a brand name again..."

Badminton's shuttlecock, with its open cone of goose feathers embedded in a rounded cork base, doesn't look designed for speed, yet it can move faster than projectiles in any other racket sport. To do that, it has to be smashed, and not all smashes are equal. Smashes are shots taken by jumping high in the air, taking a breath, slamming the racket down on the shuttlecock at an angle and - ideally - being so brutal about it the other player can barely jump out of the way let alone retaliate.

Thousands of people protested in Paris and other French cities on Saturday against a mandatory coronavirus health pass for entry to a wide array of public venues.The pass was introduced by the government as it battles a fourth wave of infections.It was the third weekend in a row that people opposed to President Emmanuel Macron's new COVID-19 measures have taken to the streets."I won't go to restaurants, I don't give a damn. I won't sell my soul to go to the cinema, or for other nonsense, that's it. There is more at stake -- freedom. There is nothing above freedom. We have started losing all of our liberties. So it must stop, that's enough. We must put an end to their nonsense."Visitors going to museums, cinemas or swimming pools are already denied entry if they cannot produce the health pass showing they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or have had a recent negative test.Parliament approved a new law this week that will make vaccinations mandatory for health workers and extend the health pass requirement to bars, restaurants, trade shows, trains and hospitals.

More than 1,000 nurses gathered in Budapest on Saturday to demand better pay, after a survey showed many of them are considering leaving Hungary for higher salaries elsewhere, straining a healthcare system already short of workers. Like many east European countries, Hungary is grappling with a shortage of doctors and medical workers as local salaries pale in comparison to western European levels. "There could be a huge wave of nurses quitting when pandemic travel restrictions are lifted across Europe," said Zoltan Balogh, chairman of the Chamber of Hungarian Healthcare Professionals.
U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan urged Tunisia's president on Saturday to outline a swift return to the "democratic path" following his seizure of governing powers last Sunday, the White House said. Tunisian President Kais Saied invoked a national emergency over the coronavirus pandemic and poor governance to dismiss the prime minister, freeze parliament and seize executive control in a move welcomed by street rallies but which his opponents branded a coup. In a phone call, Sullivan underscored to Saied the need for "rapidly forming a new government, led by a capable prime minister to stabilize Tunisia’s economy and confront the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as ensuring the timely return of the elected parliament," the White House National Security Council said in a statement.
With the 2020 Olympics half-way through Saturday, some medalists were already heading back to their home countries given this year's strict health restrictions in the Olympic Village.Even though there is a raging health crisis in Japan and controversy surrounding athletes' mental health, some Olympians are still finding a way to relax and enjoy the gathering. Swedish athletes enjoyed a sweet treat just outside the Olympic Village before boarding their team bus as they grappled with 90-degree weather -- a rare opportunity to go mask-less and chat amongst themselves. Meanwhile, the spirit of the Games spread outside of the Olympic village with local residents enjoying a game of hoops.For Tokyo resident Ogasawara Masahito the best of the Olympics was yet to come for him with a spotlight on hometown favorites like star marathoner Suguru Osako."I am most interested in the men's 100-metre run, in which three Japanese athletes will be competing. I want all three of them to go on to the final. Another thing is the marathon as Suguru Osako has said he will retire after this one. So, my eyes will be on the athletics in the second half of the Olympics."While the rest of the games might garner a lot of attention from the hometown crowd, global eyeballs could further wane as big names like Simone Biles take an early exit from some events....The USA Gymnastics team said in a statement Saturday that Biles "will continue to be evaluated daily to determine whether to compete in the finals for floor exercise and balance beam."Meanwhile men's tennis No. 1 Novak Djokavic was out without winning a single medal for the third straight Olympics.But there are plenty more events to come before a crowd-less closing ceremony takes place on Sunday, August 8th.
