Samsung HW-H550 review


If the Samsung HW-H550 sound bar inspires a bit of déjà vu, it's not just you. In line with a lot of Samsung products (see the BD-H6500 Blu-ray player), the entry-level H550 borrows heavily from its predecessor, the F550. In fact, the two systems look...

Great feature set ; Diminutive profile ; Powerful sound ; Good balance ; Decent stereo effects for size

Lacks detail ; Can lose realism in louder moments ; Not a vast improvement over its predecessor

A powerful sound bar with good balance and an extremely slim profile.

Samsung HW-H550


Samsung's midrange soundbar delivers a big sound from a slim speaker

Slim, well-made soundbar ; Clear, exciting sound with nicely integrated bass ; Good range of features and connections

Similarly priced rivals offer greater authority, scale and finesse

Samsung’s chic soundbar marries a busy feature list with impressive performance, but bear in mind that you can get even better sound quality for similar money.

A Samsung Soundbar : Samsung HW-H550


When is a speaker not a speaker? The answer could well be when the particular audio output device is called a soundbar.

The Samsung HW-H550 is a two piece Wireless Audio Soundbar product that consists of the main soundbar element and a wireless active subwoofer. Along with the soundbar and subwoofer units, Samsung has packed various accessories into the box.

Wireless Audio Sound Bar w/ Sub


very pleased with the audio and looks.

Sound bar delivers very good sound and the sub-woofer has very good bass that is powerfull and tight. I use the USB port with my thumb drive for my music

I wish they would include an optical cable.The speaker cable that comes with it has eighth inch jacks on BOTH ends and my TV has RCA phono inputs, so had to buy an optical cable instead

Good sound


The Samsung soundbar is very good, it seems to work very well in the room that I have it in which is about a 12' x 15' room, not real big. The sound bar does well in this room the highs are very good and the subwoofer is ok but could hit a little...

Sounds great


I was pleasantly surprised with the sound that came from this small unit. Fits directly under TV so it looks good with universal bracket but you must make sure its installed properly. I put the sub woofer behind my recliner so I feel it.
