Rated 5 out of 5 by from Premium Soundbar that replaces Home Theater HW-N850 Sound bar from Samsung is a beast of a sound bar. At first, I was surprised by size of the box; actual length of sound bar also does not disappoint (?). I have a 65 inch TV and media storage that fits perfectly with N850 sound bar; so the size doesn't bother me at all. I believe It actually is helpful to get a feel for true surround audio. I also have to point out that build quality is really top notch, and is very heavy for a sound bar; I think this is a good sign as good speakers generally have some weight to it. Setup was simple and easy. I realized there is a way to sync between TV and the sound bard via ARC. Basically connect HDMI cable on ARC HDMI ports on both devices. My Samsung Frame TV can work perfectly in conjunction with HW-N850. I felt like it's one device after ARC setup as TV remote can control both. I also learned that this is a way to get the full effect of Atmos and all features of N850. I also connect my XBOX One X to one of the input port on the sound bar. I watched couple of UHD blu ray titles, including Planet Earth II and Life of Pi. The sound coming out from the box was absolutely amazing although its default bass level is bit too aggressive; so I had to decrease bass level a bit; personal taste. Later I realized that some Xbox One titles actually support Atmos, so I gave it a try. Final Fantasy XV. I definitely feel the difference with or without Atmos. I wish I can try some action movies. At the same time, I felt that it would be even better if I have surround speakers on the back. Luckily, optional wireless surround speakers (SWA-9000S) are available at a very low price. Will definitely try it. I would recommend Samsung HW-N850 to people would like to enjoy premium audio with without taking too much space. It also would eliminate all the complication of setting up multi speakers and wiring them all over the place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Soundbar, Even Bigger Sound Holiday shopping is in full swing, which means an excuse to spend money on myself. I decided this year's tech upgrade was going to be the sound system in the "man cave." I've been using a Samsung HW-K550 since 2016, and I thought I'd go for an upgrade. Soundbars have made huge strides to close the gap that separates them from traditional home theater setups, but there has always been a lack of spatial and atmospheric sound. The HW-N850 has changed that in a big way. I've never felt so enveloped in sound outside a traditional theater. This soundbar has so many speakers firing in all directions that it wraps around the room like an expensive traditional system would. Now if you haven't seen it in person, let me inform you that it is big -- like, really big. I've attached an image of my HW-K550, which was already larger than most soundbars, sitting on top of my new HW-N850. This thing is easily three, almost four, times the size of my old one. I mean there are some serious speakers in this thing -- 13 to be exact. I have a 55" TV and this soundbar is the same width, so if your TV is smaller it will look kind of funny. Also, this doesn't come with the rear speakers, but you can add wireless surround speakers later. There is an interesting sound setting called "Smart" that really showcases what this thing can do. The range is also absolutely stunning. The highs are crisp, the lows are rich, and the mids sound perfect, unlike some other soundbars that give the mids a muffled sound. Gaming and watching movies is insanely good on this system, but something I noticed specifically was how well it plays music. When I workout, I like to watch music videos for motivation. Soundbars I've had before weren't strong at playing music, likely because there was a lack of range. This soundbar is amazing for music, and it gets loud, really loud. If you are looking for an expansive and encompassing system without all the wires and hassle, the HW-N850 will not disappoint. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality My TV already had good speakers its a Samsung 8 series, pairing this was amazingly easy and simple. The sound quality and volume you get out of it is just amazing makes you jump when watching a movie as the system makes it sound like they are really behind you. The sub makes amazing sound, truly helps you get lost in what you are watching.  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Sound Bar But There Are Issues I purchased HW-N850 Sept 24 and I can say I’m happy with my purchase. I have the soundbar connected to my 2015 JS8500 through ARC and my Apple 4k Tv and Sony 4k blu Ray player. I had the Xbox one X connected but opted for Sony player. The sound from his is amazing and subwoofer packs a mighty punch. I have no issues in sound department. I do have tv sound and Xbox one X runnng optical. Let me tell you the bad and good with this product. Only two hdmi ports and for this price at least 3. I was force to choose between Xbox, Apple 4k and Sony 4k player. Xbox got hammer because I have Atmos through headphones as a work around on Xbox. My second issue is no calibration available at this price point. My third issue sound tuns off after several mins of inactivity. This is way to short. Maybe an hour or having options available. Lastly I cannot purchase n950 rear Atmos speakers. The initial cost is too high. Sonos allows you to purchase rear speakers for their system. Samsung can do better. Overall I’m keeping soundbar because of dts x, Atmos, Harman Kardon. Samsung withheld so 4 stars out of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of this WORLD!!! I purchased Samsung HW-N850 Harman/Kardon Soundbar and Subwoofer w/ Dolby Atmos. Let us begin shall we? I am adding this to my Samsung SmartThings collection along with my Samsung Q7 65” 4K Smart TV. Combine the two together and it feels as though you are in a new dimension out of this world. The N850 comes packed with features included such as Dolby Atmos, 5.1.2 Channels with 372 Watts of Power. There are so many ways to connect to your devices via Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and/or HDMI directly to your tv. If you connect via HDMI you gain access to 2 more HDMI ports. The sound quality is phenomenal, makes you feel as though you are in the movies without the ticket prices in the comfort of your own home. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Precise sound that fills the room! I just set this up today and paired it with my QLED TV. The pair together really could not be a better match, even the TV remote works with the soundbar out of the box. This is an audiophile lovers soundbar, the sound replication is truly astounding for a soundbar, seems to fill the room from different directions. Overall I would rate this a great buy and money well spent. I have played music through it, played video games, and watched a few movies, the adjustments it makes for different types of audio are spot on. This is a plug and play system that also has great features you can adjust via the smart app, this is nearly perfect! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best crisp quality sound! The best decision I did with going with this.. I am having Samsung Plasma still and hence I connected with Optical Cable. Now I want to upgrade it with SWA-9000S but want to know what is the recommended distance between SWA-9000S and soundbar for optimum performance. Feedback: The Phone app needs improvements ; You should be able to control the woofer from app.
