    Great Addition To Samsung Soundbar

    Posted
    FranzJ

    I was looking for a decent quality and sounding surround sound system with minimum of wires to go with my Samsung Smart TV. I researched several and decided on this Model: New! Samsung - 3.1-Channel Soundbar System with 7" Wireless Subwoofer - Black HW-M550/ZASKU: 5754514 setup due to quality of sound, minimum of wires and easy setup, the fact it was a just released new item and it was Samsung. The setup was simple, some tinkering to figure it out but very intuitive. I experimented with placement of the wireless sub woofer and in the end have great quality sound and deep base. You actually have separate control of volume of the sound bar and the sub woofer to achieve optimum levels to your preference. I then added the New! Samsung - Wireless Rear Loudspeakers (Pair) Model: SWA-8500S/ZASKU: 5754510 and voilà I had a great surround sound system with sound coming from every direction with a very clean "almost" wireless setup. Note: there are about 12' speaker wires running from the wireless rear remote receiver to the 2 rear speakers.

    EXCELLENT SOUND

    Our Samsung 4k H.D. T.V. wasn't loud enough on certain channels to hear all of the dialog. The solution was the matching Samsung Sound Bar, which made everything loud enough, however, the sound bar doesn't provide true surround sound, the solution to that was this matching Samsung Wireless Rear Speaker Set that included a wireless subwoofer. Simply plug the rear speaker receiver into an electrical outlet and do the same for the subwoofer, quickly and easily pair them both to the soundbar via bluetooth and away you go. Perfect, clear and loud enough full surround sound for any small to midsize room without the hassle of having to run wires everywhere. The nice thing about buying Samsung products from Best Buy is that everything matches and just easily all works together without any problems. And Best Buy's employees know exactly what pairs and matches, so there is no guessing required by the buyer. The only drawback is that neither our Samsung T.V. remote control or our Comcast remote control is able to operate the soundbar, and or the rear speakers and subwoofer, so after you turn the T.V. on you have to turn the sound system on via the sound system's remote control and adjust the volume accordingly from the sound system's remote control.

    These do their job

    I bought these as an accessory to the M550 soundbar. Pairing was seamless and the whole rig was set up in minutes. The thing about surround speakers is they are supposed to add to your viewing experience, not be the star. And that's what these do. There is no volume adjustment on the speakers: that is controlled through the soundbar remote. When the source (cable/satellite box, Blu-ray player, etc.), TV and soundbar settings are properly set, these produce separate sounds from each speaker. This means you truly have 5 separate channels, plus the .1 sub. If you are not using surround, all 5 speaker play the same sound. These connect to the bar via Bluetooth, but still require wires from the base to the speakers. The ends of the wires connecting to the base are "plugs", not bare wire, and are color coded. The ends connecting to the speakers are bare, but pre-twisted and color coded (positive and negative) making it easy to connect. This presents somewhat of a problem in that if the cables are too short (which they were for me) you can't just swap them out for your own...of course you can pig-tail them with additional cable, but that's not the purpose of this plug-and-play kit. Overall, these are the perfect add-ons for a soundbar.

    A cellphone speaker has more power

    Absolute garbage system. The speakers themselves produce almost no sound unless you put them directly behind your head. Even during the loudest scenes in movies they fail to deliver anything worthwhile. Only when putting them within a few inches to your ear will you begin to even hear anything come out. This is with them turned up to the highest setting possible (+6 on a HW-M360), with every sound mode/surround sound/base and treble configuration possible, and with 5.1 source audio. So the content isn't to blame here. I tried fiddling with the wires, making sure they weren't in too far. Making sure they metal was properly contacting, making sure the plugs were correctly seated in the receiver. I even tried testing the receiver with other speakers, only for them also fail to produce any worthwhile sound, which tells me it's the receiver that is at fault here. It's baffling how they could be sold like this. A cellphone speaker can, and does, go louder than this. Believe the other reviews that say these are too quiet. I wish I did.

      JOKSTER543,

      Thank you for purchasing the Samsung Wireless Rear Loud Speakers. I am sorry to hear that you did not experience the full potential of the surround sound system.

      Please know that by design, the surround speakers are supposed to simulate sounds happening behind the viewer. Therefore, most of the time the surround channels are only used for ambient sounds, which are naturally lower in volume.

      However, there are a few settings you can change to adjust the surround effect to your preference:

      1. Make sure that the source (e.g. TV output) is sending surround channels to the Soundbar. If the source is not surround, then set the Surround mode to OFF on the Soundbar by pressing the Surround button on the remote.
      2. If the source has surround channels, select the desired Sound Mode from the Soundbar remote. Choices are STANDARD, MUSIC, CLEAR VOICE, SPORTS, or MOVIE.
      3. Turn off Dynamic Range Control. This is done by pressing and holing the Sound Mode button while the Soundbar is in standby mode.
      4. Increase the volume level of the surround speakers using the Sound Control button on the Soundbar remote control.

      I hope these tips help to enhance your audio enjoyment.

    Impressive Upgrade for Soundbar w/ Surround Sound

    I was a little concerned about getting the rear speaker set after reading through reviews. With Best Buy's return policy, I decided to pick them up and give them a try. While the wireless receiver required a manual pairing to my sound bar, the sound synced and the surround effect was noticeable right away. The more I scrutinized the sound from the rear speakers, I noticed that for the speakers were just duplicating the stereo sound of the front channels for a lot of programming. After trouble shooting, I can confirm that my Samsung HW M450 can support true surround sound with these rear wireless speakers. It required me to adjust the settings on my streaming box to output audio in Dolby Digital and DTS. Otherwise it was defaulting to a simple stereo setting.

    Let me just first start off by saying that these speaker are more then worth the low price. I purchased a samsung m450 2.1 soundbar and absolutely loved it. When I discovered that the soundbar had optional rear surround sound speaker I researched them immediately. Something didnt add up a 160 watt system and alot of people complained that they weren't loud enough. Well i should have know this is because know one takes there time. You can very simplely make them louder then you soundbar so loud i had to turn them back down alittle. On your soundbar is a settings button click that until it says rear speaker level and you can adjust accordingly. Best money spent. Your going to love the surround sound experience.

    Issues connecting

    Tried repeatedly, to pair with the soundbar and had no luck. Could never get the ID Set to show on the soundbar. Contacted Samsung and troubleshot it and was finally able to get a solid blue light indicating successful connect but no sound from the rear speakers. The soundbar allows options for HDMI or digital optical and since the digital optical on tv wont stay plugged in we opted for the HDMI. Everything on the soundbar works but no sound from paired rear speakers. Support said that to get it to work you have to use the digital optical. WHY would you not include the fact that if you want to be able to use the rear speakers that you must use digital audio instead of HDMI for the soundbar connection in the instruction manual for the soundbar or rear speaker kit? When asked if there was an adapter such as an HDMI to digital audio or switch, the answer was they did not know if it would work. Extremely disappointed. Also, have no instructions on how you can change the volume of the rear speakers in the instruction manual.

    Small Space Surround!

    I took advantage of the deal to pair these little speakers with the soundbar I purchased. Upon opening the box I was a bit surprised at how small the speakers were. I was skeptical how they would sound or if they were worth the add on price. But, I'm pleasantly surprised! They add a subtle, welcome dimension to the listening experience. I've placed mine directly on my living room chair, which seems to work well for my 500 sqft studio loft. I'm unsure why they're called wireless though. I mean, they're easy to move and place anywhere since the power unit that connects to the soundbar via bluetooth can be put where you like, under the chair in my case, but the speakers themselves still have to be connected via wires to the power unit. So, kind of a silly marketing ploy. Wireless to me means without wires but I suppose the argument could be made that the wireless claim is in reference to how the power unit connects to the soundbar....I guess it's neither here nor there. Overall, happy with the purchase and the additional value the speakers add to my television viewing experience.
