Review: Samsung HW-Q800C Soundbar

 

Excellent sound quality and features make this midrange bar a top pick.

Full and well-balanced sound. Punchy dynamics. Clear dialog across genres. Precise and immersive soundstage. Good overhead Dolby Atmos effects. Included wireless subwoofer for cinematic bass. Easy setup. Lots of A/V features. Available add-on surround...

Upper midrange can occasionally sound forced. Oddly awkward volume control for music streaming. Subwoofer takes some taming. No Google Chromecast. Pricey at full cost.

Samsung HW-Q800C Soundbar Review

 

The Samsung HW-Q800C is a 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos soundbar released in 2023 as the next generation of the Samsung HW-Q800B. It's a more affordable alternative than the manufacturer's flagship models, including the Samsung HW-Q990C. While it has many of the...

Extended low-bass. Lots of sound customization tools. Dolby Atmos support.

No satellite speakers.

The Samsung Q800C is great for mixed usage. This 5.1.2 Dolby Atmos soundbar offers a versatile performance overall, so it's suitable for everything from music to movies to TV shows. Dialogue in your favorite shows is clearly and accurately reproduced,...

Samsung HW-Q800C review: Wireless Dolby Atmos sound perfect for most large living rooms

 

If you're looking for a reasonably priced Dolby Atmos soundbar, the Samsung HW-Q800C is fantastic, especially if you have a Q-Symphony Samsung TV.

Nice simple design ; Fits nicely under Samsung TVs ; Easy to setup and use ; Dolby Atoms, DTS, Game Pro, Adaptive Sound and more ; Samsung SpaceFit and Q-Symphony (compatabile with select Samsung TVs) ; Big immersive sound, especially with Q-Symphony ;...

Price is the only con, that is if you can't afford it.

Samsung does it again with its 800 series of soundbars. This series is sort of the midrange of the Samsung soundbar lineup. It’s a bit more expensive than most soundbars, but not crazy expensive like the 900 series. But the Samsung HW-Q800C is well...

+ Versatile, easy to setup ; + Space-saving audio gear ; + Good array of connectivity options ; + Comes with everything you need is inside the box ; + Excellent sound quality with a punchy bass ; + Q-Symphony further amps up the immersion ; + Supports...

- Not suitable for FPS and battle royale games ; - Audio experience heavily depends on room size ; - Media with Dolby Atmos support is quite limited ; - Pricey

The Samsung HW-Q800C soundbar is a great addition to your home theater setup, but it's using it to its true potential depends on the TV you're using as well as the room you're placing this in.

Samsung HW-Q800C Review

 

The Samsung HW-Q800C is another convincing, powerful, and satisfying immersive soundbar from Samsung with better bass performance.

Big, powerful audio performance ; Excellent dialogue reproduction ; Muscular but controlled bass performance ; Good with music

No Chromecast support ; A little too close to HW-Q930C in price

The Samsung HW-Q800C is another convincing, powerful, and satisfying immersive soundbar from Samsung with better bass performance than its predecessor. If you have a recent Samsung QLED or OLED TV, this is a fire-cracker of a soundbar to partner with.

Samsung HW-Q800C review: the best-value Dolby Atmos soundbar in town

 

The Samsung HW-Q800C is the company's premium "convenience" soundbar from 2023, meaning that while it dispenses with the rear speakers and some of the size and power you get with Samsung's flagship Q990C soundbar, its "bar-plus-subwoofer" package still...

Phenomenal power and projection Can be upgraded for full surround Aggressively priced for what it offers

No 4K/120Hz HDMI passthrough Not as musical as some rivals Not the prettiest soundbar around

Don’t be fooled by the Samsung HW-Q800C’s unassuming looks. Inside that all that angular grey plastic resides a phenomenally powerful multi-channel speaker system capable of unlocking the joys of a good movie soundtrack more effectively than arguably...
