The Story of Wireless Audio 360

The establishment of a new state-of-the-art audio lab in the U.S. marks a new step in our mission to develop groundbreaking sound devices. Our top audio researchers and engineers have applied new methods of transduction and advanced computer modeling to bring you world class audio products.

The Story of Wireless Audio 360

360 Omnidirectional Sound

Unlike conventional speakers that project sound in a single direction, Wireless Audio 360 fills the entire room with sound, thanks to Samsung’s Ring Radiator technology which disperses sound evenly in all directions. *This image is based on the R3 model.

360 Omnidirectional Sound

Classic Design

Contributing to the best 360 sound output, the speakers are purposefully designed in a cylinder shape with a precisely calculated sound gap between the speakers and acoustic lenses to equally resonate sound throughout your home.

Classic Design

Effortless Control

Navigating your music is easy with the R1’s intuitive top panel interface. Simply tap to control playback, swipe to play the next / previous track*, and touch Mode to toggle between Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and TV SoundConnect. And for ease of use, an LED indicator lets you know the device’s status.

Effortless Control

*Next/Previous function may be limited according to CP (content provider) services.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Most frustrating purchase ever !! Continually dropping out from grouping. Continually dropping out from Wi-Fi. 3 of the 4 speakers frequently go on mute for no reason. Purchased a Samsung hub to solve all of the above. Didn't make any difference. Good luck redeeming the Deezer promotion. Honestly wish we had never bought this product. Great sound but VERY high maintenance. Samsung reps in John Lewis were unable to assist with any of the above. Not worth the trouble. Wish I still had my iPod classic & dock. At least they worked !!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent speaker but the Multilink is hugely flawed I brought 2 of these speakers and a sound bar to link with a Samsung TV that had TV Soundconnect. The general sound of the speakers and level they can achieve is decent for the smallest speaker in this range. It all went down hill when you try to connect to the TV and other speakers. The TV Soundconnect can only connect to one speaker at a time unless you set it to surround on the speaker, if you set it to surround on the speaker you cant use the Multilink feature. If you use the Multilink feature the sync between the TV and speakers is well out and not adjustable. They constantly drop out and if you have them connected to the TV you have to turn them on and reset the input every time you turn the TV on, such a pain. The soundbar and the R1 speakers will be going back. So disappointing. If you want a single room speaker then its decent but don't expect flawless multiroom audio from these.
