Samsung HW-MS550 All in One Smart Soundbar
  • I thought the tv sound wasn't that bad when i first got but it if you are watching with the soundbar on then turn it off its unbelievable the difference it makes!!
  • When the sound surrounds you it is like being in the cinemas, definitely would recommend to anyone who wants that little extra punch to their sound quality.
  • It's made a huge difference to the sound quality of our smart tv.
  • I don’t claim to be a hifi guru but appreciate good quality and the sound seems excellent (especially for the price point)
  • Really has made a difference to the sound quality from our TV and was very easy to install
Samsung HW-MS650 All in One Smart Soundbar
  • Had this about a week now. Really good bass. Very nice low sound.
  • Vocals are clearer, there is no distortion, and the bass packs a hell of a punch considering there's no separate sub.
  • Very good sound bar , crystal clear and plenty of bass.
  • It still sounds great even at lower volumes, which you'll probably want to stick to unless you really hate your neighbours.
  • Absolutely awesome sound bar. Worth every penny. Clear speech and fantastic bass even without the sub woofer.

  • Sounds just like I'm in the movies. It does a really good job at directing sound.
  • The soundbar is now used as the echos speaker enabling you to play whatever music you want through it. Awesome!
  • It does a really good job at directing sound. ( i.e Plane flying over head, explosions from behind)
Samsung HW-MS650 All in One Smart Soundbar
  • I've only had it for one day but I've given it a test using Sky, Netflix, Amazon Video & Amazon Music & Blu-ray & all platforms work very well, I am very impressed.
  • The volume level changes depending on what you're watching. With Sky, I could go up to 40, with Netflix & Amazon Video, 21 was fine & with a Blu-ray film I could go as low as 9 & it was still quite loud.
  • The difference is very noticeable and creates a good atmosphere when viewing certain programmes.
  • This is a huge improvement on the TV speakers. The bass response is impressive even though there is not a separate bass speaker.
  • This sound bar is great for its size. The bass is better than I expected. It offers a variety of sounds for what different types of programs.
