Great but dialogue still not great

Movies1984 7/30/2021

this is a great sound bar that does a lot for the price. it is excellent for loud sounds and giving depth to your viewing experience. great for sports or gaming or tv. i still struggled to hear the dialogue in movies even with the special speaker. i returned it for that reason.

Noah1123 7/29/2021

Sounds great, gives a good surrounding feel to the movie and music I play. The bass is thumpy and powerful. The only thing I wish would be different is the Dolby 5.1 be changed to Doby Atmos

Great Sound When you adjust the bass

Anthony 7/29/2021

I received about 2 months ago and wad initially disappointed with the sound level. After I figured out how to adjust the bass/treble it is perfect for my family room which is about 25 x 18 feet.

Great soundbar

Terri 7/29/2021

I bought this Samsung soundbar to go with my new Samsung tv, I love it! Paired right to my tv instantly,Has very good sound, clear and like the fact that it has the center speaker and came with the woofer which also works well with watching movies, blew me away when watched first movie it felt like I was at the theatre! Can adjust bass and sound to your liking depending on what are watching, also bought rear speakers for added surround sound in back of me. For the price I think this is a great soundbar highly recommend.

Great sound and easy installation

andyvasile 7/29/2021

This is our first sound bar. I didn't like the sound that I was getting from the TV. I was adjusting the volume several times while watching a show, so we decided to get a soundbar. We really loved the experience of watching Ford vs Ferrari. The sound enhanced the movie and we are really think that we made a great investment.

Experience of great sound

Bentidus1 7/26/2021

Im really loving this Soundbar. I'm very amazed with the sound and bass with it. The 5.1 surround sound ability lives up to its name. Sound great while playing video games, movies and music. Easy to install take no more than 5 minutes . Gave no problems in connecting to Bluetooth from many devices I have. I provided my video for example of my experience. this soundbar A650 model is equip with 3 ports (hdmi, hdmi arc, and optical). I'm using hdmi arc over optical because they both have the same aspect. Hdmi arc offer more clear and crips sound for a 3.1 system and a great sound option (doulby digital, dts ,dts virtual 3d with 5.1 surround sound ). I noticed it doesnt support wifi , but you can stream content through your device via bluetooth and have alexia connect able.

Beautiful Design and Beautiful Sound

originalshua 7/20/2021

The first thing I did after unpackaging the sound bar and plugging it in was to pair my Bluetooth with it to see what it sounded like. Holy Cow!!! I cannot believe the volume, clarity, bass, and ease of use of this sound bar. I never thought that a wirelessly paired subwoofer could be effective as I figured that there would be a signal delay, I was dead wrong. There was never a delay and the sub pack a wallop!! After what seemed like a two hour dance party, I hooked the soundbar's HDMI to my TV and tested vocals/dialogue as I was curious how good the center channel was. Even when the volume was low I could still hear the voices clearly. We have my daughter's gaming console hooked up to it and it has made gaming way more enjoyable as we are able to actually hear, and in some cases feel, the action! We have found ourselves watching way more shows on the TV this sound bar is attached to because it is such a new and amazing experience. What really does it for me is the different modes. We have been using both Game and Adaptive Lite and the difference between them is very noticeable. The only real CONI have for this is the mounting system. It relies on two small 'pegs' which while nice didn't provide enough support and the soundbar's weight caused it to sag and indent on the wall.

Awesome all-around Sound

kriserikka7 7/19/2021

We needed a new soundbar for our master bedroom and shopped around quite some time until we found the new 2021 Samsung model HW-A650. We really wanted a center speaker to hear voices clearly. This soundbar did not disappoint. It's packed with a lot of features for the price range. My husband and I both paired our phones by Bluetooth, and we take turns playing our Playlist. We also connect our Xbox Series S to test game mode. The overall sound was pretty good. While gaming, the sound had minimal lag and brought a new level of surround. I really like the overall sound, and the wireless subwoofer packs a lot of bass. The look and design is also another plus. This is perfect for our master bedroom and will recommend to my friends and family.

A decent upgrade from our previous

Zeober20 7/15/2021

My partner is a sound geek! I wouldn't call myself one but I definitely noticed the difference when be changed it out for this Samsung a650 from his Vizio sound bar! One of my fav things is that it doesn't have the rear speakers, those always seemed to get in the way when I try to arrange the room! Even without those speakers I still noticed a jump in the audio quality! I now justify the upgrade! We used it for music via Bluetooth and movies with HDMI arc, all which sounded amazing!! We'll mostly be using it for movies though, we definitely enjoy those

Big bang for your buck

Mommafrias 7/15/2021

My family has always leaned towards Samsung for our TV needs but our house being a big gaming house needed some louder more surreal sound quality so we gave this soundbar a try! It has been a total game changer it feels like we are in the game and movies when we have it on. I love that it doesnt take up too much space but gives you that extra ump you are craving with big bass that comes from the subwoofer! And it only took a few minutes to setup and is very easy to connect to Bluetooth devices. If you are looking for something that produces awesome sound and takes up minimal space this is it.

Flawless Bluetooth Connection

MrDMZ1 7/14/2021

As compared to my TV's built-in speakers, there is a dramatic improvement in quality and delivery of sound. The first movie I watched using the soundbar was "6 Underground," and I was really pleased with the impact of the soundbar and subwoofer. I really felt immersed in the surrounding explosions and dialogue. We quite literally felt the floor shake! Installation of the unit was simple, and we utilize the bluetooth connection features to sync with our TV (without any delay or lag in the TV display and the soundbar sound). We would use the optical cable that came with it, as recommended for best sound, however the cord is too short to use (It wouldn't reach from a mantle to a lower shelf). Going from the TV speaker to the soundbar is like having the pressure in your ear suddenly pop...you don't know how clear something can sound until you hear it. Since purchasing this soundbar, we've watched movies, TV shows, and played video games, and have been really happy with the sound quality of them all, and no connection issues have occurred.

Big sounds from so little

jaiveergohil 6/29/2021

I paired my A650 with my Samsung TV. Connecting it was seamless. So seamless in fact that I wasn't sure it was connected. A bonus was the fact that this came with an optical cable so this literally was plug and play. As soon as you plugged it in the TV began setup automatically. In a minute it was done and connected to the TV remote. The speakers now come on whenever the TV does. The subwoofer is subtle. I didn't think it was connected until I tested it with a sound test video from YouTube. The bass envelopes you with sound you can feel. It is awesome! The soundbar is clear and crisp. I'm still trying to figure out the best setting but so far the standard setting seems to fit best. I love the tap and play feature. I have a galaxy phone and it works seamless with the speakers. Music from there rivals a high end sound system. I'm definitely very impressed with this system and would recommend it for any TV room setup.

Great plug and play soundbar with one caveat.

ldholman 6/28/2021

The Samsung HW-A650 3.1ch Soundbar w/ Dolby 5.1/DTS Virtual:X (2021) is a great soundbar with good bass. I was able to simply plug in the optical cable to my TV and it auto detects any device I'm running through my TV and delivers great sound. The high-power, bi-directional speakers deliver great sound throughout my den no matter where I'm sitting. The size of the soundbar and subwoofer are standard and easy to place for your sound setup. I found that it can pair with some wireless rear speakers from Samsung as well and I find this very beneficial, it'll have to be my next piece of the upgrade. I use the soundbar with everything - sports, cable TV, streaming TV, movies and video games!

Amazed by the sound!

kami21 6/23/2021

I was blown away when I turned on this soundbar. I was not expecting such a power from this unit. Deep bass, clear highs and very loud! Perfect for music. The sounds are so clear that is also great for movies and gaming. Love the led display - you can clearly see the source, sound mode, volume and woofer level. Yes it has separate controls for the volume and the subwoofer - very nice feature if you want to put turn down the bass a little bit so that your house/walls don't rumble. The subwoofer is really powerful so you will need that option. Easy to connect with my samsung tv - using hdmi arc you can control the soundbar with your tv remote, but will miss some controls that come with the soundbar remote. Really easy to set up - I just put it to power and it automatically connected with the subwoofer and worked right away! Pairs with your phone right away using bluetooth. The brackets for wall mounting came in handy - I was able to DIY them to old soundbar mount (see pics). Overall very satsfied and definitely would recommend!.
