A guide to special sound modes on your Samsung soundbar

Samsung soundbar in front of Samsung TV

You may not realize it, but sound is extremely important. The slightest tweak in your audio can make a huge difference in your viewing experience. With the various modes on your Samsung soundbar, you can control the TV's sound and find the perfect one to immerse yourself in whatever you're watching.

Use the different sound modes

Note: Available sound modes may vary by model.

Just as a camera has different modes, so does your Samsung soundbar. Use the correct mode to enhance your media.

To change the sound modes, press EFFECT or SOUND MODE on the soundbar's remote.

  • Standard: Plays audio as it is received from the source.

  • Surround: Widens the sound output for a far more immersive experience.

  • Game Pro: Automatically detects when you are playing a game and adjusts the sound accordingly. The soundbar may not detect gameplay if the source is not from Playstation 4 or the Xbox One X.

  • Adaptive: Automatically adjusts the sound settings based on the content you are watching. For instance, if the content is very dialogue-heavy, the voices will be emphasized.

  • Music: Enhances instrumentals and tracks when listening to music or content with music.

  • Clear Voice: Increases the volume of the voices without increasing the volume of the entire content.

  • Sports: Creates a more stadium-like sound when watching sports.

  • Movie: Enhances movie soundtracks and effects for a much more realistic viewing experience.

  • Night Mode: Keeps the sound localized so you won't disturb anyone else.
