Great Soundbar

Davidg 11/24/2021

Great soundbar. Q-Symphony sound combination between the soundbar & my 75" Neo QLED TV provides a great sound experience. Movies, Sports & Video games never sounded so good. Easy to setup & use. Looks good too!

birr 11/20/2021

I bought the Samsung Q800A sound bar a month ago and have been impressed with the sound quality. Sub woofer offers great bass effect. Am enjoying watching movies that offer Dolby Atmos. Having paired it with my Samsung QN85 QLED TV the effects are enhanced.

HW-Q800A Review

RC TN 11/18/2021

I have owned this product a few weeks now and mostly like the sound bar. Two issues which I have noticed. On live broadcast the syn between the sound and persons talking seems to be slightly off. The other issue is the center channel for voice is not loud enough at times to overcome the other sounds. These issues maybe resolved by some adjustments, I just hadn't had time to look into it.

jvanart 11/18/2021

the q800a is easy to set up, easy to use, and best of all sounds great! but the best part is the ease of use. we have it hooked to a 50" frame, and it seamlessly works exactly how you expect a smart system to work. and even the technologically challenged member of the household has no trouble listening to spotify at will...

HT_Guy 11/18/2021

Provides a better overall experience compared to the TV's internal speakers. However, I was disappointed in the quality of the higher frequencies and the bass did not seem accurate or controlled. Of course, these issues could be due to the acoustic characteristics of my room. So, others may have a better experience.

i've had this soundbar for over a month and could'n't be happier up until last weekend when it started crashing , i factory reset it, reconfigure it, but the only thing that helps is to power cycle it but that temporary solution doesn't last long , in less than 10 mihutes it starts crashing again, it's happening to a lot of folks: https://eu.community.samsung.com/t5/audio-video/samsung-soundbar-hw-q800a-crashes-on-volume-up-and-down/m-p/4174976 the fw 1008 i have been running with the soundbar was installed back in september so it must have a nasty bug that is causing this problem, hopefully samsung will come up with a fix soon since this has rendered my soundbar useless.

Echomike 10/20/2021

Bought this about 6 months ago. Setup was easy and sound is great in atmos. Sounds great when paired with Samsung tv symphony sound. Had an issue with it losing wifi connection but uninstalling it from my app seems to have fixed that. Subwoofer seems to cut out at times but I may need to resync it with the soundbar. Aside from those issues, I'm pleased.

Amazing sound bar that needs a firmware update.

Gamer1 8/18/2021

Bought 1 month ago on sale. Everything about it was been excellent except for alexa. It does not play my spotify account when using alwxa. Googled it and its a common problem. People are waiting for a firmware update. Except for that, it is excellent. It is like a theater in your home. All the connectivity works well. Reccomend it, especially if its on sale.

The next step in sound simplicity

Thanatos 7/29/2021

This sound bar has changed my mind of what home audio can be. For audiophiles nothing can replace a dedicated system. For the rest of us, there is something so charming about having a near-theatre like experience at home in such a simple, clean package. The ATMOS isn't quite as pronounced as I would have liked, but the balanced soundstage and ease of operation still make this something I would recommend to friends and family.

Meh...It's okay.

Frugal4Divine 7/29/2021

I wanted a relatively good soundbar to go with my Q800T 8k TV to provide me with sound similar to a home theater and/or be buildable, if I wanted, to create a home theater (with rear speakers, etc.) and this answers that requirement. It's an okay soundbar. It was a tad bit tedious to hook it up since Samsung didn't provide an 'actual' or 'complete' manual (so I had to download the manual), but it wasn't a deal breaker. However, for the price...Meh! If it weren't for the significant (and what a blessing, I might add) discount I got for being a RN, I don't think I would have been happy with the purchase because I don't feel that it is really worth the original price, and that is why I only gave it 4 stars.

Excellent soundbar with amazing sound

rrphi 7/29/2021

I've had the soundbar for about a month and I am very happy with my purchase. I understand this soundbar pairs well with specific Samsung TV models. I have The Serif TV, 2020 and there are no compatibility issues. Set-up was straightforward with a few extra steps to enable Dolby Atmos and ensure proper conectivity. Once that's done, Dolby Atmos content was recognized properly. The sound quality is excellent but I still have to find the right movie to experience that Dolby Atmos feature where the sound feels like it's moving all around me while watching. The soundbar can get pretty loud during intense movie scenes, but without any distortions. The sound remains clear. The only thing I would mention which I couldn't find a reference to prior to purchasing: when Q-Symphony is enabled (sound coming through the soundbar, subwoofer, and TV speakers at the same time) the eARC connection cannot be used. Instead, the connection switches to WiFi. Why is this a bad thing? Because Dolby Atmos is only available via the eARC connection. This is not mentioned anywhere on the product page or user manual. You just learn of it during set-up. It's worth knowing before purchasing. And yes, I understand why this is happening: because my TV speakers do not support Dolby Atmos. Apple TV 4K, 2021 also recognized the soundbar as a compatible audio output for Dolby Atmos content. I have yet to experience DTS-x once I find the proper content. Overall, a great soundbar, perfect size (fits nicely on top of The Serif TV), and the sound quality is amazing.

Was Expecting More

DanG 7/29/2021

After getting a Samsung Q80a TV, I thought if I matched it with a Samsung Soundbar I would get a fantastic match. As it turns out it is good but not as good as I had hoped for. The sub woofer doesn't seem to put out what I had hoped for. The bar itself doesn't give the separation I expected. However, it does help a lot with the dialogue, for this reason no real regrets.

espinozalee 7/29/2021

I didnt want to only get my new TV without the sound bar. This soundbar plays good sound and I can vouch that the Q-symphony works well. Dolby atmos is still not much from what I can tell but ill keep trying it out. I've been using a PS5 which had noticeable audio drops, but this was due to the console and not the tv/soundbar pair as a whole.

Instead, the connection switches to WiFi. Why is this a bad thing? Because Dolby Atmos is only available via the eARC connection. This is not mentioned anywhere on the product page or user manual. You just learn of it during set-up. It's worth knowing before purchasing. And yes, I understand why this is happening: because my TV speakers do not support Dolby Atmos. Apple TV 4K, 2021 also recognized the soundbar as a compatible audio output for Dolby Atmos content. I have yet to experience DTS-x once I find the proper content. Overall, a great soundbar, perfect size (fits nicely on top of The Serif TV), and the sound quality is amazing.

Excellent soundbar with amazing sound

rrphi 7/29/2021

I've had the soundbar for about a month and I am very happy with my purchase. I understand this soundbar pairs well with specific Samsung TV models. I have The Serif TV, 2020 and there are no compatibility issues. Set-up was straightforward with a few extra steps to enable Dolby Atmos and ensure proper conectivity. Once that's done, Dolby Atmos content was recognized properly. The sound quality is excellent but I still have to find the right movie to experience that Dolby Atmos feature where the sound feels like it's moving all around me while watching.

Can feel the sound!

tuniloon 7/26/2021

I was really impressed with this soundbar. It was very easy to set up although was a little confusing that you had to set up hdmi for the best sound but also wifi connection in order to have the Alexa work. I'm not very happy with the remote - it looks cheap and doesn't have a microphone in it to work with the Alexa. If the soundbar is playing, it often doesn't hear me trying to activate the Alexa. As for the sound, we were watching a movie the other night and I could literally feel the bass. It balances the voices so they don't get drowned out by the "background" music. Over all I am very happy with this soundbar. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest feedback.

No need to go to the movies anymore

mt2020 7/22/2021

This soundbar is just awesome. We used to go to a lot of movies and then the lock down happened and we were forced to just watch at home. Now that theaters are open again I no longer need to go to the theater when I can have great audio at home. The Samsung Q800A compliments our Samsung TV and the sound is just excellent. Hookup was so easy using HDMI and I was able to connect my phone to it when I just want to listen to music. I was also able to connect my music accounts and use the built in Alexa to play whatever songs I want. I really wish I had this soundbar when the pandemic started as it's made me not miss going to see a movie.

Outstanding sound quality

Johnny51 7/20/2021

I've been using the sound bar for a few weeks now, and have been extremely satisfied on how well it performs to our old receiver setup. Not only does it produce higher quality sound, it removes all the wiring setup from before. Leaving a nice clean setup. We had guests come over for the holiday that even brought up for great it sounded while watching movies. They loved the base coming from the wireless sub, allowing us to easily place it behind the couch. Made us feel like we were at the movies!

Amazing sound

Lmbeise76 7/20/2021

The Samsung hw-q800a sound bar with Dolby atmos far exceeded my expectations. The unbelievable room filling sound and the sub shakes my walls it make the home theater experience so much more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade their sound system to Dolby atmos . And if you pair it with a Q symphony enabled Samsung TV the sound effects are even more amazing. We now have the best sound ever.

Really Impressed

Ronke0924 7/20/2021

I have to be honest. Before we got this sound bar, I really didn't see the reason why we would ever want one. My husband is both a technology person and a musician. I enjoy the technology that I use, but I really don't pay that much attention beyond that. But I do enjoy watching TV and movies. So, when my husband brought home this new Samsung sound bar, he was the one that was excited and I was just going along because he was. It took him less than 30 minutes to get it out of the box and set up with the TV. And once he plugged it in and set it up, I have to say that I was really impressed. The sound is really great and even I instantly noticed the difference. My movies sound really good and when we listen to music, the bass is really full. It wasn't there at all before. We also can hear the sound clearly from across the room which is nice when we're in the kitchen. In fact, it's so much louder and clearer that my husband has said that he can hear every word of my movies from the home office on the other side of the house, and it's not turned up that much at all. It also looks really good with the TV. It doesn't take up a lot of space, which I like, and it matches everything else really well. I'm really happy we have it now, and I would recommend it because it works really well.

Overall Great Package

Jaay 7/14/2021

i'd give this product 4.75 stars. for a single soundbar and subwoofer the audio quality is really good. voices come in clear and music sounds great for price range. i use earc with my 55 inch sony a8h oled, so i can't speak to the q symphony feature. has a digital display on the front that turns off after a few seconds so it's not distracting. i had a small issue the first day i set it up. the unit wasn't turning on automatically when i turned my tv back on. i had to unplug the power from the tv and sound system to get it to work. happened a few times. i don't know if the unit did a software update, but the next day it worked fine and has been good for a week now. assuming the issue is fully resolved, i would highly recommend this product. i wish it had google assistant compatibility.
