I didn't like it!

Sorry Samsung. I own a lot of your products that I love but not this one. Hooked this up to a brand new 55 inch Samsung 7150. The sound was NOT better than the TVs built-in speakers. In fact, it was worse. It was muffled and hissed. The TVs speakers were MUCH clearer. I had it hooked up properly by way of ARC HDMI. The hook up was simple and worked as stated. Honestly, I would not use this sound bar even if it was free. The 7150 TV I love; it's great. Brought the sound bar back to Best Buy im...

Excellent complement to UHD TV

By

from Fort Worth, TX, USA

We purchased our H550 Wireless Audio Soundbar with our 65" Samsung UHD TV and it provides an excellent home theater audio. Getting the remote control setup figured out took a little bit of trial and error experimenting, but we have it set now. Highly recommended!

Shopped others and glad I picked the 550 sound bar

By

from Cottonwood, CA 96022, USA

I have a Samsung 60" HDTV I got last year and my wife didn't like the old surround system we had and wanted a sound bar. I was afraid I wouldn't like it after having a surround system and tried to talk my her into getting another but she wouldn't budge. We listened in a store to this system and liked the clear sound and rich base so took a chance it would work in for our good sized living room with our TV. I know it is not real surround sound but really I don't miss it and the wires and speakers at all. the sound is very clear and good with different modes for movies, music, voice and simulated surround sound that makes it work just fine for us. If you want a sound bar I think you will be very happy with this sound bar. Samsung seems to make quality products. We have ours on a table under our TV but it also can be mounted on the wall.

Don't listen to TV speakers any longer

By

from Ann Arbor, MI, USA

Was listening to the TV speakers for years until I got this item. Didn't realize what I was missing! Using with an older Samsung UN55D6000 55-Inch TV. Followed instructions to hook up. Use HDMI, the best cable for HD since it passes video and audio and does it both ways. ATT Uverse Box OUT-> HDMI Cable -> Sound Bar IN - > Sound Bar OUT -> HDMI Cable -> TV HDMI IN Problems. #1 After poweroff for a long time, when power on the soundbar it will default to DIN as the input and NOT HDMI. Then I have to manually use the other remote to change the soundbar input to HDMI. If you want automatic recognition of HDMI you must do the following: If this happens to you, then you need to swap the TV and Sound Bar connection above. I could not swap these because my TV does not have an HDMI OUT. So I must live with changing DIn to HDMI on long sleeps or power offs #2 The older uverse remotes don't work with this soundbar directly. The solution is call ATT and get the S-20 Remote (free) which will have the soundbar codes. #2B If you are using the older AT&T remote with your Samsung TV you can get it to work without getting the free S-20 Remote from ATT. All you do it, turn on Anynet, by pointing at TV and Soundbar and press the AnyNet button the provided Sound Bar remote. Now the AT&T Uverse remote will change the volume of the sound bar. The sound is quite good. Deep. Although, some audio is echo'y.. Obviously much is to do with the source.. e.g. College basketball broadcast with bad audio setup. But what is cool is you will hear nuances such as the bass of the basketball hitting the floor and other niceties. Great company. Great product. If you have a Samsung TV definitely get this. It does of course work with other brands of TV's

Great product for plug and play

By

from Lawrenceville, GA, USA

I am very pleased with the purchase. It has good sound plays loud very simple set up and easy to use. My only concern with the unit is that I wish it had more user control for treble and bass. I find myself having to adjust it manually every time I switch sources or content i.e. movie to TV to music to Bluetooth.

Excellent Sound Quality with Low Profile Design

By

from Bethlehem, PA, USA

This sound bar was easy to install. The low profile makes it easy to fit in with any decor. The sound quality is excellent with many options to choose from whether it be music, movie, surround sound, or just standard. The blue tooth sub is great for the lows you would otherwise miss out on during a movie or music play back. I would tell anyone to buy this if you want better sound quality.

Great Sound Bar

By

from Stafford, VA, USA

I went to Best Buy to look at sound bars.. my curved TV already actually had decent sound.. but as a man, I wanted more. So I listened to them all and since I already had a Samsung TV which I love now.. and this is my first one to BTW.. I decided to get a Samsung sound bar.. it has amazing sound. You will not be disappointed.. I looked and listened to the other brands.. but for the price this sound bad beat the competition!
