Samsung HW-N850 Review: A $1,100 Beast of a Soundbar

 

The HW-N850 offers a lot for $1,100 — big, detailed sound that you can adjust to match your surroundings and tastes. Last year, a system with this quality and features would have cost $1,500 or more.

Detailed treble and bass ; Ridiculously loud

Really big ; Slightly bright sound

The Samsung HW-N850 is a big soundbar that produces big sound and comes packed with the latest features, including Dolby Atmos.

Samsung HW-N850 Soundbar review

 

Great sound but front-heavy

Excellent performance ; Atmos and DTS:X support ; Extremely well made ; Easy to setup

Sound front-heavy ; Basic audio setup ; Limited HDMI inputs

The Samsung HW-N850 has width and upward-firing drivers, a wireless subwoofer and it supports both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X. However it lacks the flagship HW-N950’s rear speakers; so while it sounds great, the audio is weighted towards the front of the room.

Great performance ; Dolby Atmos & DTS:X support ; Straightforward setup ; Attractive and well made

Front heavy effects ; Only two HDMI inputs ; Limited audio calibration

The Samsung HW-N850 is an impressive soundbar that delivers a solid all-round performance. It's attractively-designed, extremely well-made, and offers plenty of useful features. Some more HDMI inputs would be nice and setup was rather basic, but the...
