Featuring Dolby Atmos and separate rear speakers, the Samsung HWK950 immerses you in sound like no other soundbar.



Crystal clear and accurate sound in every seat

A comprehensive setup of 15 individual speakers is built into the HW-K950 Soundbar delivering a powerful and pure audio experience that is second to none. Three tweeters are devoted to recreating crisp, clear, high notes, while the eight mid-range drivers ensure that the mid-range frequencies are warm and lifelike. Additionally, four up-firing speakers deliver incredible object-based sound.

Powerful bass and wide reaching sound
The rich, deep bass comes from a separate wireless subwoofer, which is included in the box with this Soundbar. Featuring specifically engineered wide-range tweeters, the HW-K950 delivers a wider sound coverage than conventional Soundbars resulting in a larger sound stage for viewers. Gone are the days for only viewers in a small sweet spot enjoying the best possible audio quality - with Samsung's HW-K950 everyone experiences equally impressive audio.

Unleash studio quality music into your home

Featuring Multiroom functionality means you can enjoy your favourite songs not only in your living room, but in any room of your home by wirelessly connecting Samsung Multiroom speakers to this Soundbar.

Compared to usual surround sound, this Soundbar delivers a more realistic audio experience enabling objects such as flying helicopters or birds being heard above and around you, making you feel like you are part of the action. Even when playing movies and shows, that are not Dolby Atmos enabled, the HW-K950 promises a more captivating and realistic experience providing phenomenal overhead and surround sound you have never heard before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellant product with great sound Very easy to install and set-up. sound quality is great no matter where you sit in the room. Very pleased

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best soundbar i have ever heard had this 2 weeks and have been very impressed with the overall surround effect, this is partly down to the 2 active rear speakers and large sub,but also the many drivers on the unit including the upfireing speakers which give a overall feel that you are enveloped in sound,the mountain stage of the tour de france was brilliant as the sound of cow bells(don't ask) moved around the front of the room,also the noisy crowds seemed to come from every direction.Build quality is good and the only down sides are only 2 HDMI imputs, and no DTS X so bog standard DTS on your BluRay Discs,as I have Sky Q movies everything is DD and Atmos which I had never heard before buying the Samsung, it seems to add real height to the front and back as the surrounds have upfirers as well. Overal this is a superb sound bar and so it should be for the money I am seriously considering having this replace my home cinema amp for all duties but as I love my DTS HD sound codecs on Blu Ray I may wait to see what Samsungs replacement does

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convincing surround effects & clear sound I purchased the HW-K950 Samsung soundbar one month ago and have been busy putting it through its paces since, mainly playing UHD movies and some limited music playback (standard MP3s). And the overall impression is pretty good. The first thing to do however is check the (US based) Samsung support forum for intel on firmware upgrades, news, bugs and tips. There are a few minor undocumented features and an almost complete lack of information on just what has been fixed/added/improved in the firmware updates. Current f/w version is v3117.3 as time of writing (2nd July 2018). You'll want to download the Samsung Multiroom app (for Android/iOS) if you haven't already as this allows you to not only set up wireless networking abilities for connecting mobile devices (for remote music playback) but also to update the soundbar's firmware, which is arguably very important as we've all been waiting for the addition of proper HD level, object-based multichannel DTS support. On this last note, as it stands Samsung has now added 5.1 DTS multichannel decoding support but it's anyone's guess as to what type of DTS audio we're actually getting as unlike Dolby Atmos support, there is no little blue light signal to let you know. Some Samsung Support forum users have speculated that the K950 may not actually receive DTS Virtual X support or even DTS Master Audio support as that feature might be reserved for the forthcoming N-950 flagship model that is said to feature extra drivers for side sound expansion. There are also reports of reliability problems with maintaining TV ARC control for what appears to be a wide selection of TV brands. This disconnection problem appears to be linked with firmware updates - the K850 is sett to auto-update if connected to a WIFI network. I managed to easily reconnect the K850 back to my LG TV after one such update so didn't share the problem, which I believe (perhaps wrongly) is probably an issue shared by a minority. Okay, so now on to business: what does the K950 actually sound like? Well, as I said before it's pretty good and by that I mean I'd give it 4 and a half stars out of 5 if I could. This is an overall figure and largely reflects its relative ease of use, reliability, versatility and of course mainly, sound quality! The soundbar definitely loses marks for aftersales customer service (poor communications from Samsung) and, of course, lack of information on exactly what type of DTS decoding the K950 can process. However, the main package provided means it picks up more marks so to speak as I feel it wouldn't be right to give the product any less than 4 stars (Richer Sounds website won't currently allow a 4.5 star input). In terms of movie sound effect steering, I've been most impressed by the film John Wick (UHD) with Dolby Atmos sound. There's a scene where Mr Wick visits a nightclub and there's a shootout in the basement - the impression of bullets zipping by right around you is very memorable! And other film sonic highlights are oddly the rain sequences with it feeling quite like you are actually being rained on yourself. I have to say John Wick and JW Chapter 2 are quite stand out films for audio effects. I'm by no means an expert however so your mileage will vary. Other movie highlights are from explosions in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (UHD) and of course Blade Runner 2049 and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (UHDs). This is kind of a disclaimer as my own experience of this product is affected by the fact I can only listen at moderate volumes since I live in an end of terrace flat and I don't have a great deal of enthusiast multi-channel audio experience - my experience is limited to an old 5.1 setup not used in a long while and quite extensive use of my Sony MDR HW700DS which are not quite that comparative. I'm just an average Joe and nobody to listen to if you want pro-level audio reviews. Lastly (or almost lastly), one of the major strengths of the K950 soundbar is the wide soundstage provided especially at the front which means ordinary broadcast tv and general stuff on services like Amazon can sound really good as far as basic stereo sound effects go. The Dolby Atmos-like surround upscaling is well implemented too and improves clarity I feel, as someone who is a little hard of hearing when it comes to catching dialogue. Unlike the main paid for reviewers out there I can't say that the Clear Voice mode really helped me make out dialogue at all - quite the opposite in fact, which is odd. The Night Mode is quite good at seemingly enhancing dialogue but kills the volume level of other sounds to too much of a degree that a soundtrack can become a bit distracting, pulling you out of the film. I'd personally recommend sticking with standard mode or the surround upscaling mode (top left button on remote). Bass, as is often reported is just too over-powering in my experience. I've mentioned above that where I live I need to be careful of not making enemies of all my neighbours so I've found that I have to turn the subwoofer volume down to its minimum setting of minus 12 (it goes up to plus 6). The sub is quite a bit of a beast by soundbar standards. If like a good rumble then you shouldn't be disappointed. It's quite taught too - the LFE channel - so music and fast action keep up quite well I feel. Again, if listening to music in the evenings I've got the sub turned way down at minus 6 and the main soundbar volume just to plus 8. The sound is adequate background level and for those with normal hearing I'd expect that to be very satisfactory. For most sources the sound can go really much higher. However, using the Amazon Prime Video service I found I had to turn the soundbar right up to the 60+ level and this was true for most BBC iPlayer content also. Watching the UHD streams of the World Cup on the BBC iPlayer though and sound has been very good at much lower volume levels. I am a bit hazy about the last points of which input sources exactly gave less volume so best to take my comments in context. So - more caveats: I didn't and haven't tried any music above wirelessly streaming standard 320kbps MP3s using the Samsung Multiroom app. I'd like to try some high definition music at some point but my hearing isn't exactly stellar so I don't expect I'd benefit too much. Also - I haven't listened to that many DTS HD Master Audio mastered standard HD Blu rays yet so that's another thing to question as lack of proper HD level DTS multichannel support is a pretty big deal to those with large blu ray catalogues. I also have yet to set up the (free) R1 multiroom speaker so can't speak of that. Also, I paid £1099 overall and bought the Samsung 9500 UHD blu ray player for the free popcorn/film deal and because the Samsung UHD blu ray players can re-encode multi-channel DTS into Dolby if needed instead of just (as usually receommended) pure bitstreaming. Overall - 4.5 out of 5 stars Sound quality - 4.5/5 Build quality - 4.5/5 Features 4/5 Documentation 2/5 Aftersales support 1/5 Value for money 4.5/5 I don't regret buying this soundbar even with the DTS issues and negative comments from the Samsung support forum. The inclusion of 2 actual rear speakers with 35 Watts of double driver goodness has got to stand for something and is the main reason I went for this over the comparatively priced Sony HTST5000 that does actually feature DTS Virtual X decoding. I think most people would be happy with the Samsung HW-K950 so can wholeheartedly recommend it to those of you who don't want to wait or pay extra for the N-950 whenever it becomes available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features, Great Sound, Easy to Set Up Having put up with an old 5.1 system for a number of years with intrusive base and muffled treble, I'm so glad I invested in the Samsung Dolby Atmos. The higher sounds are crisp and clear and the woofer can be adjusted to taste. Just like being at the cinema! Very expensive but you get what you pay for.
