The bodily design of a speaker is very important because that contributes a lot to the choice of selection of soundbars. In this section, we shall be considering the bodily design of these two soundbars.
Vizio Elevate: The Vizio Elevate is a one-of-a-kind soundbar. The front section of the bar is iron while the rear is made up of vinyl and plastic. When you play Atmos or DTS:X content, the bar can rotate its left and right edges upwards, you can also make these sections always face upwards rather than outwards. The driver is situated beneath the subwoofer, which is mounted on four little pegs. Melamine is used for the most part, with a plastic plate on top. On the back of the submarine, there are ports for connecting satellites.
Two satellite speakers are included with the Vizio Elevate. The top and front of the speaker have an aluminum grille, while the rest of the speaker is made of plastic. They’re made to be hung vertically.
Bose 700: The Soundbar 700 offers a quality appearance and feel. It is heavy, signifying that the interior is well-made. It has a beautiful tempered glass top border, and there are some response buttons on the bar. The effect it produces on your living area is softened by rounded corners and a wrap-around grille, as well as its remarkable tiny size.
The Verdict: In terms of the body design, the two soundbars are both attractive but the tempered glass at the top of the Bose 700 soundbar makes it look more attractive compared to the Vizio Elevate. There is a glaring and distracting look it gives to the room when it is being placed very close to the TV screen. It tends to reflect the images being shown on the TV screen.
SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES:
Some soundbars have some special features which make them sound better than others. Specifications are the functional features exhibited by some soundbars to produce quality and clear outputs.
The Vizio Elevate possesses some great features which enable it to produce amazing and mind-blowing sound as it is a 5.1.4 channel home soundbar. It has two independent HDMI inputs and a third, called “HDMI Out,” that supports eARC, connectivity. It is built with external digital input, 3.5mm analog audio, and also a 3.5mm “voice assistant” input, as well as USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The Elevate connects to your network via Wi-Fi and comes with built-in Spotify Connect and Chromecast.
The remote resembles the ones that come with lesser Vizio soundbars, however, there are two key differences. At the top, there’s an LCD monitor, and at the bottom, there are four setup buttons.
It also has an automatic volume or night mode volume, which automatically reduces the volume during the night. Instead of you to be stressing yourself looking for the remote to reduce the volume of the sound dissipated, it will automatically reduce the volume.
The Bose 700 have HDMI input with Audio Return Channel (ARC) which runs to the TV, alternatively, the soundbar has an optical cable port in case the TV does not have the HDMI port.
The remote control is huge and has the ability to control both the blue-ray and the TV. It also has in-built Bluetooth, Wifi, Apple Airplay, Amazon Music, Spotify which makes connection easier.
The Verdict: Although the two soundbars have special unique features, the Vizio Elevate has made their headway through the in-built Chromecast for easier connectivity which is absent in the Bose 700 soundbar.

Would you rather settle for low-quality sound-producing bars? I know your answer is No. let us look into the two soundbars and point out the one that produces the high quality of sound.
The stereo frequency response of the Vizio Elevate is remarkable as it produces a bass-heavy sound profile which gives audio more boom and impact.
The Vizio elevate has bass and treble controls, as well as four Equalizer, presets to allow you to customize the sound profile to your taste. The main speaker has 13 drivers, including a designated center channel and 5 tweeters this makes it produce more accurate and mind-blowing sounds. It has a 30-20Hz frequency.
The Soundbar 700 produces a sound that is significantly more amazing than its modest size. There’s enough left and right dispersion to cover an entire living room wall, evoking a feeling of theatrical scale well beyond what any TV’s built-in speakers can achieve.
Despite its tiny shape and lack of up-firing speakers, the Soundbar 700’s audio has a modest sensation of verticality. This little verticality is very effective for making dialogue appear to come from the screen rather than the speaker.
The sound system’s architecture, which includes four forward-facing drivers and ‘Phase Guide’ multi-directional beam elements, ensures that vocals remain clear and locked in place at the heart of the soundbar’s sound, despite the widespread dispersion.
The Verdict: Despite the fact that the two soundbars produce quality sounds, Vizio elevate has 13 drivers which make it produce more quality sound compared to the four driver’s speaker.
Having made the comparison between these two soundbars, it is necessary to know that the price matters in the choice of soundbars but the sound quality of the speaker matters most as that is the main reason why one opts to get a soundbar. As we can see in terms of price, the price for Vizio Elevate is on the high side but the features and the design of the soundbars are worth the price tag for the purchase of the soundbar.
