Samsung HW N950 Dolby Atmos Soundbar – Hands On Review

As the first soundbar to come out of Samsung’s California-based audio lab, the HW-K950 Dolby Atmos soundbar was a real gamble. In fact, with its dual wireless surround speakers, 15 drivers (including four fired at the ceiling), and a $1,500 price tag, the K950 might be better described as an all-in, pink-slips-on-the-table bet on Atmos. Luckily for Samsung, going big paid off. While plenty of others have tried, no one has created a true Dolby Atmos surround soundbar that bests Samsung’s first venture into the segment. Until now.

The follow up to the K950, the HW-N950, is even more formidable than its predecessor (and at $1,700, it’s got the price tag to prove it). Boasting new side-firing front drivers for a wider soundstage, support for both Dolby Atmos and DTS 3D surround, and impressive clarity across the board, Samsung’s latest audio powerhouse has once again laid down the track for all other surround soundbars to follow.

  • I don't think it is samsung product. Samsung don't have such expertise in audio section. I think it is Harman kardon product ..the company acquired by samsung.

  • Wow, Advise to use optical input without the mention that Atmos nor DTS:X will not work !! ( It ONLY works with HDMI )

  • Hi @digitaltrends, how do I know that my atmos feed is working correctly through the system? Does it display ATMOS on the front of the soundbar throughout the playtime of whatever is running through there?

  • I just picked this up for £650 brand new as it's being replaced by the Q90R in shops, pretty confident that at this level there's very little the next gen can improve on other than daft gimmicks and AI integration. Chuffed to bits with it and what a bargain at £650.

  • Next time please review with sound also…
    For now it's just a theory without real experience…

  • Stopped halfway through the vid. I’m buying one during Labor Day weekend sale.

  • The Q90R is not worth buying if you own a 2018 model or older Samsung equipment with Arc buy a current sound bar for 2019 Tv models or newer with Earc Samsung will not be updating its 2018 and older models with Earc so don’t waste your money

  • I am moving my company headquarters to Dublin in August. I have ordered the 2019 Samsung Q950 R 75" 8K television, and the HW N950 Soundbar to compliment the television. Thanks for this mini-review! I look forward to enjoying my system each and every evening after a long busy day at my offices.
