A $20 HumanCentric of a $59 Sonos, which mount to choose? Let's see they both are an inexpensive piece of sturdy black metal with four single holes (HumanCentric) or long horizontal hole slots (Sonos) along the back for wall mounting, and two single holes (Sonos) or long horizontal hole slots (HumanCentric) along the bottom to screw in the soundbar (Sonos Beam). And one (Sonos) is about three times the cost as the other (HumanCentric).
Gee, which one???
Obviously I prefer HumanCentric. It's sturdy, more than enough needed for a device weighing a half dozen pounds. And while it might be nice to have the long slots rather than the single hole along the wall mount like the Sonos, it is far far more functional to have those long slots at the point the device mounts to, as it is much easier (with the HumanCentric mount) to loosen the screws and slide the soundbar to correct a minor centering problem (the mount is noticeably shorter than the length of the beam, which means the mount goes unseen when soundbar attached) than to remove the soundbar and loosen to slide the mount along the wall (which you would do with the Sonos mount).
Basically, (and I'm not saying the Sonos product is just as good, but) the value is with the HumanCentric product.
I’m not handy at all but this thing was super simple to install, it looks good, well constructed, and saved me twenty bucks. I had it up and going in less then 10 minutes. Just used a leveler, mounted the Mount to the wall, put the speaker on, move it till it’s centered, and tightened down. I have no concern that my beam is going to end up on the floor as I put some weight on the bar to confirm stability. In my situation, my studs were too far apart so I used one stub and one dry wall anchor. Do yourself a solid and buy this mount I.e save the 20 more dollars the “official” one is going to charge you. Truth be told they probably outsource it to someone and out their stamp on it.
P.s ignore the wire mess, that’s my next thing to tackle now the bar is mounted.
