Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The HW-N950 appears to be quite well built, and with 4K Ultra HD and HDR passthrough at 60 fps alongside both Dolby Atmos and DTS decoding, it should remain relevant for years to come. Thrilling 3D surround sound
The Samsung HW-K950 is one of the best sound bars we've ever heard for both movies and music. The dedicated rear speakers deliver increased immersion compared to single-speaker designs. It's cheaper than buying a Dolby Atmos receiver and speakers.
The HW-K950 fills the room with a big immersive soundstage that’s bursting with detail. Its warm, full-bodied sound remains cohesive and listenable even as the volume creeps higher. Effects have ample drive and detail, and there’s a surprising sense of composure when driven hard. This is easily the most sonically accomplished soundbar Samsung has produced.
For the home the Atmos take is different. Indeed, the Samsung K950 - as one of the first generation of Atmos soundbars - is intent on making surround sound audio easier in a home setup, without needing to drill holes or connect dozens of speakers to various surfaces. Setup of the system is as easy as taking it all out of the box and plugging it in.
Offers some of the best audio quality that you'll find in a soundbar system. Includes 15 different built-in speakers, two rear speakers, and a subwoofer for the best possible quality. Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity for streaming music from mobile devices. Works well with 4K movie audio.

What reviewers didn't like

It's expensive for a sound bar, and DTS support is limited. Dolby Atmos is only available on a limited number of titles compared with other surround formats.
If I have one criticism it’s bass performance. With such small drivers in the soundbar it’s down to the subwoofer to fill in the low-frequency gaps, but during action scenes it goes overboard with a boomy, overpowering performance.
Really expensive system. More audio features than most people need.
