1. LG S95QR

Best overall soundbar for LG G3

Price: $1799.99
Size: 47.2"

Soundbars made by the same company as the TV in question always offer the best compatibility. So, it's not a huge shock seeing the LG S95QR up here as our top pick, although that's not to say this isn't an excellent soundbar anyway, that's just not what this article is primarily about.

We say it's one of the best because it comes with additional speakers for more encompassing audio, but has a 9.15 channel design that can output room-enriching audio that'll have you wondering how you lived without it. It's incredible for positional audio too, which means you'll feel like you've got a full surround sound system set up, even if you don't invest in anything other than this.

Moreover, it's capable of playing IMAX Enhanced content, helping it deliver a true cinematic experience right in your own home. Remarkable features like this and more elevate it to being an outstanding soundbar, and its effortless connectivity further solidifies it as the ideal choice for your LG G3.

2. Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2.4 Channel Soundbar

Best premium soundbar for LG G3

Price: $1899.99
Size: 45.5"

As a more premium option, we've gone for the mighty impressive Nakamichi Shockwafe Ultra 9.2.4 Soundbar, and no, that's not a typo, despite the fact that we keep thinking it is. This slightly more expensive option actually comes with dual 10" subwoofers and four surround effects speakers, which you could say is slightly cheating, but it does mean it's capable of delivering some seriously powerful and immersive audio.

The soundbar itself has a 9.2.4ch array, which means it can blast sound throughout any room while making sure all the lows and highs can be heard effortlessly. It also has 3 HDMI inputs in case you've got several consoles, or multiple external devices for that matter, you want to hook it up to.

At the end of the day, this is one powerful soundbar and speaker setup, one that will undoubtedly take your overall TV-watching and gaming experiences to the next level.

3. Sonos Beam

Best small soundbar for LG G3

Price: $509.00
Size: 25.63"

Space is something that is hard to come by. Short of buying a whole new home, we're often stuck with the space we have, and as such, making the most of that space is of the utmost importance. If you fall into this category, then consider the Sonos Beam as it can deliver premium audio, even though it's just 25.63" wide.

Don't let its size fool you. It still features Dolby Atmos for room-filling sound, can be connected to your phone to play music without switching on your TV, and can be controlled with your voice if you need to.

Power-wise, its five internal speakers allow for a wide range of sounds as well, giving you a more complete soundscape that should help you hear every tiny detail with ease. Considering its size, the Sonos Beam really is a great pick.

4. Yamaha SR-C20A

Best budget soundbar for LG G3

Price: $179.95
Size: 25.98"

Okay, this may be a "cheaper" option, but the Yamaha SR-C20A is so impressive that it still presents a sizable upgrade over not having a soundbar at all. And let's be honest, its $179.95 price tag is a lot easier to stomach than paying over a grand for a more premium pick.

Aside from being a more compact, budget-friendly choice, this soundbar still has plenty of oopmh, and is particularly good at making voices in shows and movies easy to hear, even in quieter situations. It also has four sound modes for different kinds of media, and can even be wall-mounted if you'd prefer.

There are no additional speakers or subwoofers granted, but the Yamaha SR-C20A is still an impressive bit of kit that can upgrade your LG TV's current audio output significantly.

5. Samsung HW-Q800C

Best midrange soundbar for LG G3

Price: $697.99
Size: 43.7"

We're finishing off with the Samsung HW-Q800C, an incredible all-rounder that'll make any TV it's paired with sound great. While it's technically at its best when with a Samsung screen, it still does an excellent job with the LG G3 too.

Under its moderate price tag, it can deliver 3D audio to surround you, the listener, with sound that makes you feel like you're right in the heart of the action. What's more, it features a 5.1.2ch sound output, and it comes with a subwoofer for an even deeper surround sound experience.

And, if that wasn't enough, it also comes with Alexa built-in, which means that you can control it with your voice. With a game mode too, this thing truly cements itself as a solid all-rounder for a midrange price.
