There's a $300 difference between the two soundbars. Both come with Dolby Atmos onboard for virtual surround sound, along with a wireless subwoofer for added bass. But the ZF9 benefits from added voice controls, so you can use voice control via Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa.

This is the more expensive of Sony's two 3.1-channel soundbar systems. Dolby Atmos provides virtual surround sound, while there's Bluetooth and wi-fi for wireless music entertainment.

The cheaper option has the same discount, and $200 is certainly a great saving here. With a wireless sub and Dolby Atmos on board, it still packs plenty of features for its new low price, too.
They both sound pretty great, too. In our ZF9 review, we praised the soundbar's "impressive amount of weight", while the G700 earned plaudits for its modest price and "impressively cinematic performance".
