About the Samsung HW-S800B
Slim and powerful
The Samsung HW-S801B is incredibly thin and space-efficient, but it still packs a punch with 9 built-in speakers, including up-firing drivers for overhead effects. It's also one of the world's first sound bar systems to support wireless Dolby Atmos. You can pass an Atmos signal from a compatible Samsung TV via Wi-Fi for panoramic home theater sound with less cable clutter.
The included compact subwoofer adds deep bass impact to match the on-screen action with its dual side-firing 7" woofers. It also connects wirelessly for easy placement. (Just remember, you'll need to plug the bar and the sub into an AC outlet.)
Samsung designed this bar to work seamlessly with their impressive QLED TVs, letting you control and adjust the settings for both the TV and the sound bar with the Samsung TV's remote. And Samsung's Q-Symphony feature lets the sound bar and your compatible TV's speakers play together for even bigger sound. (Q-Symphony requires a wired connection between the bar and TV.)
The HW-Q801B has a dedicated center channel to make quiet conversations easier to hear. Plus smart processing optimizes your sound settings and amplifies voices based on each scene you watch, keeping dialogue intelligible even at low volumes.
Helpful smart features
You can play your favorite tunes straight from your smartphone with the bar's built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. The HW-S801B also comes with Apple AirPlay 2 and Chromecast built-in for easy streaming.
With Amazon Alexa built-in, you can even control the sound bar with your voice. If you're an audiobook addict like me, you can just say "Alexa, read my book" to pick up right where you left off.
Clear audio cues are key for competitive, immersive gaming. The HW-S801B's Game Pro mode automatically tracks directional sounds to match what's happening in the game world, including overhead effects, for a smooth gaming experience.
Bluetooth with just a tap
The HW-S801B's built-in Bluetooth can wirelessly stream content directly from your phone. If you use a Samsung phone, you can just tap it on the bar to start casting audio (requires Android™ OS 8.1 and higher and the SmartThings app). Bluetooth also works for receiving stereo audio signals from a compatible Samsung TV.
