Samsung HW-MS550 soundbar review

 

With so many great Samsung audio products, does this soundbar stand out?

Superb build quality ; Very large sound stage ; Richly detailed sound ; Easily readable LED display

Bass can sound awkward ; Dialogue can sound vague ; Struggles vs the MS650 ; No 4K/HDR passthrough

The MS550 produces a startlingly large wall of sound for such a compact, one-body speaker. It also looks the part, and supports a great range of sources. It’s just that once you’ve heard the only £100 more expensive MS650 in action, stepping down to...

Samsung HW-MS550 review: A great budget all-in-one soundbar

 

The cheapest all-in-one soundbar from Samsung features distortion quality and gets very loud, but also has its flaws

Impressive soundstage ; Excellent connectivity options ; Beautiful design and build quality

Wobbly mid-bass ; No Bluetooth aptX support

Given the current promotion Samsung is running, you could grab either at £200 off. At that price they’re both a bargain, but take my advice and choose the Samsung HW-MS650 instead; it sounds so much better.

Samsung HW-MS550 review

  (Rating Hidden)

With everything contained within a single unit, the understated yet powerful Samsung HW-MS550 sound bar could be the perfect all-in-one sound system. It has wi-fi and Bluetooth so acts as a wireless speaker as well as a sound bar. Is it worth splashing...

Samsung's Sonos Playbar Clone Isn't Worth It

 

I expected something wonderful. The $630 Samsung Sound+ has eleven drivers, wi-fi audio capabilities similar to the slightly more expensive Sonos Playbar, and a very attractive design. In short, I was hoping for a cheaper version of the Sonos Playbar,...

Compact, great features and connectivity options

 

I purchased it this month and sound quality is very good in such a compact design. It is quite simple to use and my kids are even using it with ease.

Good substantial soundbar

 

I've been looking at soundbars for some time and after seeing a friends in action, decided to take the plunge. It is larger than I expected (depth) and I was concerned it might not fit due to length between the legs of our tv... however it just made...

Many features but "ClearVoice' lacks real clarity

 

I bought this model as I read a write up that said it was good for voice.(I even asked Samsung about this). However it doesn't really increase the voice over the background music that seems to be the norm these days.

Great all round!

 

I bought this sound bar two weeks ago after reading the reviews! It's perfect for what I need as couldn't hear dialogue on my TV very clearly! I can also play all my music through it via WiFi and Bluetooth, a cool added bonus!

Simple to set up and use with great sound

 

What an improvement on tv sound, even on voice, but especially for music. Fits into TV set up discreetly. Easy to set up and used. Really pleased I took the plunge and bought a good sound bar.
