Samsung Dolby Atmos Soundbars Now Available to Order

Back in the spring, Samsung Electronics had announced plans to pack Dolby Atmos support into two new soundbar products. The company has just started taking pre-orders on both of those options, promising to deliver before the end of the summer.

The HW-K950 is actually the first Dolby Atmos soundbar "package," which means it includes two wireless rear speakers and a wireless subwoofer. The company is also releasing the HW-K850, which comes with a wireless subwoofer as well. Both are Samsung's first soundbar products to get Dolby Atmos Cinema Sound, which promises that immersive audio experience without the need for speakers around the room and/or on the ceiling.

Having this tech built into the soundbar means that the HW-K950 can deliver 5.1.4-channel sound, with the HW-K850 promising a 3.1.2-channel experience. Measuring just 2.1 inches high, the HW-K950 has three forward-facing and two upwards-facing speakers. Both models can connect wirelessly to the components included with each package, which makes for a very easy setup.


Samsung says that each product was developed at the company's Audio Lab in Valencia, California. Our editor Chris Boylan got to hear the latest version of each one at the Audio Lab, stating that the sound was vastly improved over the prototype versions shown at CES back in January 2016.

Samsung is currently taking pre-orders for the HW-K950 and the HW-K850. Both will ship sometime before the end of this summer, priced at $1,499 and $999, respectively.
