The Bomaker Odine II is a great soundbar for budget-conscious users who only need good enough sound for movie night or TV watching. It’s super easy to set up, but it’s missing WiFi connectivity, and the narrow soundstage is disappointing.

Product Snapshot

Overview

The Bomaker Odine II is an entry-level soundbar that was first made available in 2021.

The Odine II has a narrow sound stage due to its lack of a center, surround, and height channel, but it can connect to devices via Bluetooth for playback or streaming, and it offers three EQ presets to choose from; General, Voice, and Treble.

This is barely what the best speakers on the market have to offer, and unlike the Odine II, they also support Apple AirPlay, Chromecast, and WiFi connectivity, and upto seven EQ presets to choose from.

Still, the Odine II is a fairly loud speaker compared to the best soundbars in the industry, but its lack of support for audio formats such as Dolby Atmos might be reason enough to check out the Bang & Olufsen Beosound Stage, which we’ve covered in our Bang & Olufsen Beosound Stage review.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Bomaker Odine II gets very loud without any distortion, and it also has clear vocal reproduction. Despite this, its bass depth is still not low enough for immersive sound effects when watching movies, and its soundstage is narrow, so it’s hard to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

It also has a very low tested latency of 43ms (ARC) and 26ms (Optical) for the sound output to be fully in sync with the video content. However, Its wired connectivity options are limited to an HDMI ARC port and an AUX input, while its wireless connectivity is limited to Bluetooth, with no WiFi.

The speaker’s vocal reproduction is also excellent, but those looking for a more compact alternative might prefer our Taotronics TT SK023 review.

The Bomaker Odine II is much better built than the AmazonBasics 2.1 Channel Bluetooth speaker. Its 4.9ft Digital Optical Cable is longer than the Amazon speaker, which measures about 3.9ft. The Odine II also offers virtual surround sound and treble adjustment while the AmazonBasics speaker does not, but the Amazon Speaker supports Dolby Digital Sound format while the Odine II does not.

The Bomaker Odine II is a 2-channel soundbar that consumers might consider purchasing since it comes with three EQ presets and a virtual surround sound feature. However, its three EQ presets are outmatched by the six offered by the Bomaker Odine V soundbar. The Odine V also delivers a deeper bass level than the Odine II
