    Fantastic ATMOS audio for the price

    This soundbar far exceeded my expectations especially for the open box price. It was missing an HDMI cable but we actually had some High Speed cables from our 4k cable box upgrade that we didn't need so it wasn't that big of a deal. The HDMI ARC worked instantly and no codes were needed to sync the remote. It was truly plug and play. It was also nice to have the sub-woofer connect wirelessly. Just need to plug into a power source. Connecting to WiFi and using as an Alexa extension was simple and pretty cool as well. You can use your phone as a remote too with the Smart things app on your handset and it provides more sound customization. I have a S20+ and it seems to be best friends with this soundbar. Its gets really loud and sub sounds like a movie theater when turned up without much distortion. This ATMOS unit is going to be worth your money as long as your room is not too large. They also have a rear speaker upgrade which I plan to buy in the future that makes it 5.1.2

    Bass not super deep/clean, but A+ otherwise

    Posted .

    The RTINGS.com review of this soundbar is a good guide, but they didn’t test many features or settings (to best standardize their testing regimen) that can greatly sway one’s impression on the soundbar, including some points they docked this soundbar on. WHY I CHOSE THIS SOUNDBAR: Samsung has been on the up and up with soundbars and they’re definitely value priced. The HW-Q700A lacks the side firing speakers like the Sonos Arc soundbar, but I don’t have the best room to take advantage of such features as I have open walls to the side. I live in a small studio condo and I wanted my entertainment setup to look as sleek and minimalist as possible. This meant sacrificing the idea of using a BluRay player to feed uncompressed Dolby Atmos or DTS-HD Master Audio signal to the soundbar. I wanted to go all streaming to minimize wires and extraneous hardware, which for the moment, at best, meant getting compressed Dolby Atmos or other object-based mixing. That in turn capped my desire to get more extravagant and pricier soundbar options, like the Sonos Arc or Sennheiser Ambeo. In other words, I felt the HW-Q700A was well matched to my room and intended source fidelity. This model was also the minimum level that could connect to Alexa by WiFi (as opposed to just Bluetooth like the Q600A). It doesn’t have Alexa built in like the Q800A, which looking back would’ve been nice as it would’ve allowed me to not need my Echo Dot. Finally, the Q700A already had a price and overall rated sound advantage over the Sonos Arc by having a sub that’s optional on the Arc. And with the pricing adjustments, the Q700A with the optional rear speakers can cost the same or a lot less than the Sonos Arc, which then makes the big picture no-brainer case for this bar over the Arc for most needs. TEST TV AND SOURCE: The TV was a 2018 LG OLED55E8PUA. This TV can decode Dolby Atmos in compressed form through the Dolby Digital Plus codec and output from its HDMI ARC (not eARC). Source was from LG TV or Apple TV 4K streaming device apps from streaming services: Vudu, Netflix, and HBO Max. Since it’s not a qualifying Samsung TV, I also can’t take advantage of the Q-Symphony sound integration with the TV’s built-in speakers nor use the TV’s mic’s to calibrate the soundbar to the room’s shape. It’s an interesting way to get folks into the Samsung ecosystem. STYLING AND FIT/FINISH: Outstanding. Boxy faceted edges in my eyes looks better against a straight-edged TV. The profile is nice and low that doesn’t occlude the view of my TV, although the latest LG OLEDs will require either wall mounting or some elevated platform to rise above the soundbar. The metal housing looks high grade even up close. SMARTPHONE APP and PHYSICAL REMOTE: This is outstanding to a level I can’t imagine being beat by any other. It’s very nice looking, controls a lot of features that the physical remote controls. The app currently cannot control the narrower-band specific EQ settings, the on/off toggle for the Acoustic Beam virtualization, and the upper front speaker gain. INPUT OPTIONS, INPUT DETECTION, CONNECTION STABILITY: The RTINGS.com article on this soundbar gave this a 10/10 because it has all the possible input options one would want. For TV owners with just an ARC port and want the uncompressed, this soundbar with multiple HDMI inputs (including eARC) and 4K passthrough would be advantageous over a single HDMI port Sonos if one wants to hear uncompressed Atmos from a UHD disc source with uncompressed Atmos/DTS:X signals. With this soundbar, one can run an output signal from a UHD disc player to the soundbar input and then backpass the 4K signal to the TV’s ARC port. For Sonos, because it has just one HDMI port, a TV with just ARC would need a HD Fury Arcana plugged in line from a UHC disc source, which some users out there isn’t always glitch-free. OVERALL SOUND: I think the high frequency is good, the mid-range punchy, and even the bar’s woofer-frequency response is authoritative. The voice comes along crystal clear so I only wonder how much enhancement the Active Voice Amplifier (AVA) in the higher 800+a Series would add. The bar seems to sound better for TV/movie programming than straight audio tracks compared to my Denon HEOS 7 using the same music sources. The only sonic deficiency is what comes out of the subwoofer. For one, while it’s deep and plenty powerful (enough to rattle and buzz my desk some meters away while playing Dunkirk), the subwoofer doesn’t give the deepest response. Moreover, I don’t think the bass is clean as if the speaker enclosure or something else is adding extraneous reverberation from what’s intended. This discourages using the highest bass equalizer setting. Nowhere near as clean or deep as my cheap Edifier S350DB subwoofer hooked up earlier. But it’s not bad considering all the other great things this bar does for the street price. If one wants the deepest bass in a Samsung bar, it’s a good reason to go for at least the Q800A (with a far heavier sub) and higher models. SOUNDSTAGE and SURROUND SOUND CAPABILITY: The RTINGS.com article that just tested in “Standard” DSP mode stated the soundstage is no wider than the soundbar. The soundbar has a DSP mode called “Surround” which greatly enhances the spatial effect well beyond the soundbar’s dimension (especially for some orchestral soundtrack music), but I bet one loses the most precise placement of object sound. Then there is the Acoustic Beam virtualization technology that has many tiny holes projecting different frequencies of sound upward at some angle to further enhance the surround sound and object placement; this wasn’t tested by RTINGS.com. On another Samsung soundbar, this Acoustic Beam feature had 28x2 tiny holes shooting at an 18-degree angle. Turning this on along with the Surround DSP mode really made the soundstage very expansive and mesmerizing. I haven’t really noticed serious overhead effects but didn’t expect so on a system that doesn’t include downfiring ceiling speakers, and my ceiling is 12 feet high. I heard 8’-10’ ceilings are OK for upfiring speaker effects. Only time I feel like something is coming from above is when it’s coming from everywhere like some orchestral soundtrack music. Maybe there should be a small LED on top to light up when overhead effects are projected to make us think we’re hearing something from above. Unlike the Sonos that just supports just Dolby Atmos, this soundbar also supports DTS:X and Dolby Atmos. REAR SURROUND SPEAKERS RECOMMENDED: With such aggressive pricing, I highly recommend to use the saved bucks relative to the competition to get the optional Samsung SWA-9500S wireless speaker kit if you like to get the true cinematic surround experience, which I have.

    Love it !! And I love the rear speakers!

    Posted .
    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    When we upgraded the TV we upgraded to the sound bar. It sounds great. Way better than the speakers in the TV. It’s a Samsung TV, so it hooks up easily to the HDMI (ARC). (Thats a cable that sends signals in both directions - “Audio Return Channel”). The TV remote control automatically controls the sound bar volume. We also bought the rear speakers, and I love the surround sound. They are pretty small but sound surprisingly great. I guess you only need a few highs to give the illusion that you are surrounded by sound. The small size makes them pretty easy to blend in with the existing decor. NOTE!! Only the SWA-9100S works with this. The SWA-9500S will NOT work, despite the product description. I bought them, no workie, finally called Samsung, they said no go. So I returned those and got the SWA-9100S, which work great. A bit angry at first, because the 9500S speakers feel much heavier and I thought that meant they would sound better. But they were much harder to disguise visually, and these little ones do a great job, so I am happier with these anyway. I used the Rocketfish mount - kind of a pain to get it on, but I imagine most are, and I think it looks kind of cool. With a power outlet behind the TV, no cables visible except those attached to the mount. Overall, highly recommended.

    Sound bar made for music lovers

    Posted .

    Portable and it fits easily in front of my tv. Seamless connectivity to my iPhone and other blue tooth enabled devices to play music effortlessly. It’s perfect for those movie nights when you want a theatre experience. Bass , Treble and sound equalizer work in perfect harmony. I am enjoying it and will surely recommend it to others as this is great find at such low price. Even at very loud sound level the quality of sound doesn’t deteriorate and you can hear things clearly.

    Excellent for the average living room

    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    So I bought this sound bar for a few reasons. One being it was hard to hear what people were saying in movies and tv shows because tv speakers just aren’t that good. Now I have a dedicated center speaker for voice and it’s wonderful. I’ve had full blown surround sound systems in the past and I didn’t want to break the bank, so this one does nicely for my small living room. Second reason I bought this sound bar, it was on sale for $450. Regular price was $650 I think and it’s great for the price point. I can watch my Apple TV movies that support Dolby Atmos and it sounds pretty good. While this system doesn’t come with the rear speakers, it does a fairly decent job of throwing sound above and behind you, and I can always buy the rear speakers to complete the set up when I get extra cash. The subwoofer is small at 8 inches but is more than enough for my living room. I haven’t once thought that there wasn’t enough bass. Lastly I wanted a pretty easy setup, I have a Samsung Smart TV I bought last year and this sound bar synced up no problem, Bluetooth pairing of the subwoofer was very easy and took no time at all. I have my Apple TV 4K running into the sound bar, then my sound bar running into the tv, and I have my Xbox Series S plugged directly into the tv. All you have to do to get the Xbox to play out of the sound bar is turn the sound bar on when booting up the Xbox. The sound bar also fits under my 75 inch no problem. Overall I’m pretty happy with this sound bar. I do plan to get a much better Samsung sound bar in the future like the one in the Magnolia section, I can’t think of the model while I’m typing, the one with 9 audio channels, but this one is absolutely fine for the time being and will probably get moved to a game room when I upgrade.

    Open-box Beware

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    I recently purchased the Samsung 3.1.2 soundbar with high expectations and thought I could get excellent value by purchasing the open-box excellent condition. By Best Buy's standards, open-box Excellent looks brand new (no cosmetic wear), includes all original parts/accessories and typically contains original packaging. In my instance, this couldn't be further from reality. The soundbar and subwoofer were placed directly in a massive box with no surrounding packing save a few pieces of thin bubble wrap. Upon taking the items out, I noticed that the soundbar had some considerable dents (likely from the poor packaging), the subwoofer cloth was ripped all along the bottom, and had noticeable scratches on the top and sides. It was completely missing the Wallmount Kit and had no user-guide/instruction manual. Overall this was a shockingly disappointing performance from Best Buy. I knew I was assuming some risk by the open-box excellent condition, but this was downright misleading based on their published open-box standards. I was very excited about receiving the speaker, and would imagine it would be nice given a good condition. Hopefully my experience can help someone else with their decision making process.

    Great sound!

    Posted .

    I just received my 3.1.2ch Soundbar with Dolby Atmos/DTS:X. It was packaged well and easy to set up. The wireless subwoofer connected seamlessly and I connected the soundbar using HDMI-Arc. I am really pleased with the sound of it. The subwoofer sounds really good when watching movies. The subwoofer is a bit tall and unable to lay on it's side so it doesn't fit where I need it to so it sits out in the open off to the side. While it was really easy to connect to my Alexa, and works well with it for the most part - it does have trouble hearing me over the sound of the speaker - I would have expected the remote to have a microphone on it. It also has an issue with it dropping the sound when listening to music thru Alexa - just a random second or so of silence then it picks right back up again. It's a bit annoying but doesn't happen all that often. I also think the remote is/looks cheap for the quality of the soundbar. My Samsung TV remote is gorgeous, metal, with a microphone - the soundbar remote is black plastic, curved oddly, and extremely basic. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest feedback.

    Add Symphony Sound to your Flat Screen

    Posted .

    In a world of ‘thin’ and uninspiring sound coming from your modern flat screen, the Samsung Q Series Soundbar fills the void in a big and inspiring way. As TVs get bigger and thinner, their sound gets gotten progressively worse to the point where it really impacts the experience of watching movies, tv shows, and playing games in a negative way. When I bought my new Samsung Frame TV, I connected my previous soundbar from a major audio company, but it I just wanted something more. Then I got my Samsung HW-Q700A soundbar and I couldn’t be happier. The setup was super simple, I just connected the power cord to the soundbar and the included subwoofer and an HDMI cord to the eARC HDMI port on my TV and the soundbar. That was it. It just worked like magic. The Samsung TV one remote is able to control the volume controls and the soundbar automatically turns on and off with the TV. I’m able to adjust the soundbar settings through the SmartThings App on my smartphone, which makes it super simple and convenient. Sound quality is really good, especially the vocals in content. The voices come out super clear, way better than my previous sound bar and my full 5.1 sound system in my TV room which cost 5x more. Even though the voices come out clear, other sound content doesn’t get left behind either. Offering a complete and balance sound. The soundbar includes eARC which supports Dolby Atmos, which is the next generation of surround sound, adding a height element previously missing. When you hear Dobly Atmos content for the first time, it’s really something special. I will be purchasing the surround sound kit in the near future to complete the surround sound experience. The subwoofer offers low end extension, but is not super deep and/or thundering sound. I increased the subwoofer level in the SmartThings App and that helped, but this is the one area which could use some improvement. Bluetooth connected as simply as any other Bluetooth device and I didn’t experience any issues with connectivity. Tap and Play also worked without any fuss. Overall, Samsung knocked it out of the park. Offering a great sounding soundbar, that is fully featured and reliable with really good sound and incredible vocal clarity.

The product came with all accessories and also wall mount hooks which was a plus. I like the look the product. Very premium looking. Setup with my TV using the bluetooth was very easy. The TV detected the bar with no issues. I really love the sound this thing makes. Parts i love: are you can set it up easily. Also set up with different sound mode including gaming and surround sounds. It has direct in , Bluetooth and wifi connections. So multiple connections options depending on the devices you are connecting to. I connected this bar with my phone in few seconds. Very easy. Dolby atmos is great. The sound just immerse within and the whole room is just feels like theater with surround sound. One thing to note if you have a Samsung tv, The feature regarding using the surround sound if we have multiple Samsung devices is good. The remote is nice and you can control different connections and volume and sound options right through the remote. All in all i love the product so far. Its been a week i have been using this sound bar and so far no issues. I will be sure to update my review later with any other tips and suggestions. I will highly recommend this to my friends and family.

    Great Sounding Soundbar!

    Posted .

    I love my Samsung HW-Q700A 3.1.2ch Soundbar w/ Dolby Atmos / DTS:X. It came with remote control, AC/DC adapter and HDMI cable and wall mount kit for the soundbar as well as power cable for the subwoofer. I connected the soundbar to an older tv in my living room and used an Optical cable from my cable tv router to the soundbar. The optical cable was not supplied but it was easy to find and inexpensive to purchase. I am glad that the User Manual showed this as an optional wired connection. The sound is superb especially with the subwoofer output. I am hearing impaired and have had to have closed captioning to be able to understand the tv programming. After I got my Samsung soundbar with subwoofer connected I can hear everything without even wearing my hearing aids! My son who is also hearing impaired came in after I got it connected and now he wants to purchase a Samsung soundbar for the tv in his room. Excellent sound quality.

    Excellent Compact, Atmos Enabled Soundbar

    Posted .

    Samsung is obviously a huge player in the Home Theater market, and that recognition and market dominance comes with its perks, the biggest one being TV and device manufacturers ensure compatibility with your products. For me, this has been the biggest benefit of this Samsung Q700A soundbar. HDMI ARC works perfectly, and you get a passthrough input/output as well which some ARC-only amps and sound solutions don't provide. This means you typically lose 1 input on your TV. As mentioned, the Q700A advertises Dolby Atmos Audio and 4K Dolby Vision passthrough. It delivers but only on the passthrough port which will most likely be Input 1. Any input that is passing HDMI ARC back through Input 1 back to the Q700A will depend on your TV if they support Atmos or not. My TV does not, so the HDMI1 input/passthrough on the TV is a welcome upgrade. Also, the HDMI ARC and HDMI passthrough performance is excellent. I had a lot of issues with a Sonos Amp that was set to ARC that wouldn't keep settings as ARC, they would go to TV speakers frequently and this seemed to be a prevalent issue on Hisense's reddit page. With this Samsung sound bar, ARC seems to work perfectly, so the bulk of my review is based on this experience. Right now I am running my Apple TV 4K 2021 and passing through HDMI. Please note. If you are passing through HDMI you MUST change the input to HDMI. TV ARC you need to change the input on the TV itself and make sure the sound bar is set to TV ARC. I read some issues about the sub but I honestly felt it was too loud. I had to use the Samsung remote to reduce the sub down to -5 so it wasn't so active. Overall this is a great set, the only negatives is it makes you keep track of more remotes and I did notice the transitions between low sound dialogues and louder scenes were a bit jarring. Overall definitely recommend, especially because the ARC support is seamless between multiple devices like your cable box, PS5, Apple TV 4K, etc.

    Words can't explain how great the quality is

    Posted .

    Received my Q700A sound bar earlier this week and my wife could not wait to unwrap and set it up. I have it paired with my newly purchased uhd tv to really get the best of both worlds and wow! Best sound i've heard. Love how it connects with Samsung SmartThings to give you full control of the speaker settings. The Dolby Atmos and dts:x have transformed how the movies, music and games played sound so realistic and immersed. The added subwoofer is a great touch to get that extra bass in music and rumble in movies. The last thing is going to be the quality of the speaker itself. I love the new outer shell of the speaker instead of having the bare fabric exposed and overall desing making it very subtle out in the open. Definitely recommending to my family and friends!

    Blow Away Sound!

    Posted .

    Hold onto your socks, folks, because the Q700A will blow them right off! The soundbar fits perfectly under my 65" Samsung Q90 and packs a serious punch. It's theater quality sound at an affordable price. Setup was a breeze and literally took 5 minutes. Couldn't be happier with this product! And the option to use both the TV speakers and the soundbar is a game changer. Going from watching TV to playing music with a paired device is quick and easy and this soundbar produces window rattling, crystal clear sound! And did I mention the convenience of Amazon Alexa built in? This thing does it all for a great price!

    Samsung Comes to Play

    Posted .

    I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion and paired it with my Samsung QLED and they work together amazingly. It was as simple as plug and play. The sound quality of this sound bar is top notch, Dolby Atmos remains one of my favorite features of a high quality sound bar like this one. Using this sound bar with the HDMI eArc functionality is so easy that you don’t even notice that you are using something other than the standard sound. This has base for days and I would absolutely recommend this sound bar looking to upgrade their home theater system. Read less

    I LOVE this soundbar with the woofer. Sounds so crisp. It goes from 0 ro 100 on the volume and at 20 its already loud enough. I did try it at 100 playing a music video and it was phenomenal. My friend is envious that my soundbar sounds better than the one he has. A great buy for a good price. Go get it!

    the much needed missing link to me TV!

    Posted .

    This soundbar is awesome! It took me all of 15 minutes to unpack it, hook it up and have awesome sound come out of it! The subwoofer definitely makes everything come to life. The dolby atmos is a very cool feature as well! As much as I love my QLed TV, the sound coming from it was lacking, especially when watching sports or movies. With the adaptive audio you are able to clearly hear the voices over all the background sounds which is also a very nice feature. I basically leave mine set to this feature. I also recommend downloading it to your smart things app. From there you can make a whole array of adjustments to your liking. This soundbar is also very good for listening to music. To me it's just as good or better than any other high end Bluetooth device on the market. I received this product at a discounted rate in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Game Changing Soundbar!!

    Posted .

    Absolutely love this soundbar! I was amazed how clear the audio is...it came with everything needed for a smooth install **Update I did drop the bar another 2" down for even better quality sound!** and I really love the mounts that come with it. They create the right amount of space between the wall to have the cables smoothly pass by. The HDMI connection is definitely the better way to go. I tried both optic and the ARC HDMI and the HDMI performs better by far and makes the soundbar to be part of the system more. When gaming you MUST use gaming mode, what a game changing experience. The wireless woofer doesn't miss a beat and is a big win for the system as a whole. I can't wait to keep putting this to more and more test so I can keep getting wowed!! I've connected to wi-fi and what a game changer that is!! Quickly integrated with alexa and can mute/turn up or down all without a remote!! Easily can stream music...I absolutely love all the things this can do and easily is the key! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest opinion

    Great sound quality

    Posted .

    This Samsung soundbar was easy to set up and connect to my Samsung tv. One of my favorite things about this soundbar is that it supports eARC through an HDMI cable which allows the TV to control the soundbar. This means I only have to use one remote to control everything -my tv, the sound, our Nintendo Switch, etc... The sound quality is really good. There is a white dot display that is easy to read, which make it quick to see if the bar is on or off. It also displays the volume level on this display, as well as on the TV when you adjust the level. Finally, I would give it a 4 out of 5 on aesthetics. It is a little boxy and has an industrial-feel. I would prefer a more sleek - modern look. But the size of the bar fits nicely in my space. NOTE: I received this product at a discount in return for my honest review.

    Plug & Play!

    Posted .

    Samsung has done it again for me. From the simple packaging and setup to the ease of use. The size takes up no space at all and fits under a 60" TV. I have a Samsung Q series television, so the 2 syncs up right away. From out of the box to plugging in was about 10 minutes. It took me longer to hide the cables, lol. The Subwoofer is not overpowering and the balance is set up perfectly right out of the box. The Dolby Atmos sound is very impressive, my son jumped at a commercial... Of course, you can change the settings to your liking. I have Verizon Fios for my cable and it automatically synced as well. I use Amazon Alexa throughout my house and my bedroom Amazon Echo recognized as soon as power was on, so that alone was impressive. The Samsung Smartthings app connects in minutes, allowing you to connect all of your devices with ease. I connected with Wifi, HDMI, and Bluetooth and all were successful. I am not a tech genius, It literally is dummy-proof. I will personally use this soundbar for movie nights and music during the day. The room it is in is 18'x20' and the sound completely fills the area. I highly recommend this product: Samsung HW-Q700A 3.1.2ch Soundbar w/ Dolby Atmos / DTS:X
