What customers say about "Key Specs"
Samsung HW-K850 Soundbar (Black) with Dolby Atmos
  • From the first use we got great sound. I can't believe we waited so long before getting a sound bar
  • The sound from every program is now more realistic; listening through the tv speakers compared to doing so through the sound bar is like clearing your ears out - the difference is that noticeable.
  • This item does improve the sound quality of my 2018 Samsung 4K TV a lot it's actually amazing.
  • I like the sound on it mids and highs crystal clear, the bass and subwoofer are great though for my taste i toned them down a little.
  • I just like to hear sound the way it was made to be heard, in three-dimensions, just like every day sounds and of a good, clear quality. This does that but also provides a great rounded and clear sound.

What customers say about "Features"
Samsung HW-K850 Soundbar (Black) with Dolby Atmos
  • On a regular basis I am convinced that some of the sounds heard are generated in another room, or around me. I am more than impressed.
  • Speech remains clear, and the "big" sounds in the movie still impress.
  • Great sound surround with deep bass and clear tones makes it ideal for tv and music alike.
  • After years of listening to TV and movies with a modest 5.1 system, I decided to try something new. I was blown away by the sound. Voices were clear, music was beautiful and action clips were off the charts.
  • The beauty of this system is, once you turn it on … everything connects automatically! So now the real test, how would it sound in my home .. answer GREAT, I absolutely love this system.
