It's never a waste of money to spend on entertainment, especially when you know it'll be useful to you in the years to come. In this case, I believe the Samsung HW-Q800C Soundbar is a fantastic addition to your home theater setup that pairs well with your large TV, such as the Samsung 4K OLED S95C TV which we have reviewed in the past. So, if you're planning on getting the soundbar as well, here's what you need to know!



The Samsung HW-Q800C is a sleek-looking soundbar that doesn't draw much attention with its clean minimalist design which blends in well in every household. It comes in a size of 1110.7 x 60.4 x 120.0 mm (WxHxD) which can be fitted under the Samsung S95C TV effortlessly.

Besides that, the HW-Q800C Soundbar is also the world's first Dolby Atmos surround sound connected wirelessly, allowing consumers to enjoy ultimate 3D sounds while keeping your TV corner neat without the need for extra connections.

Under the grill of the HW-Q800C, you'll find a total of 11 speakers that consistently deliver excellent audio quality and performance for any entertainment content you demand! Though, the two front-facing speakers in each corner, two top-facing speakers, and two mini-speakers at both ends of the soundbar are the ones only visible on the soundbar.

The Samsung HW-Q800C Subwoofer, however, sports a more serious and modest design with a smooth textured cover made out of wood and a big piece of fabric housing the bass speakers. In any case, I recommend you place the subwoofer in a safe place to avoid damaging the corners of the Subwoofer.



The Samsung HW-Q800C Soundbar can produce 5.1.2 channel sound with its new physical side and top speakers units, providing overhead audio and enhancing your home cinematic experience for any content you consume.

Samsung's SpaceFit sound will automatically adapt the sound to your environment with a built-in microphone within the subwoofer and the soundbar ensures that sound settings are auto-optimized and calibrated to match the dimensions of your room to provide an immersive audio experience in the action.

Not only that, the HW-Q800C is also Q-Symphony compatible with the Samsung 4K OLED S95C which further elevates the experience with the soundbar even better. As a result, you should consider completing the set to fully utilize these awesome features that the HW-Q800C Soundbar offers!

The HW-Q800C does offer sufficient connectivity wired with two HDMI ports, an HDMI Arc, an optical input, as well as wireless connection like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, making it compatible with most of the external devices you own. Though, there are no AUX ports to support older devices.

Last but not least, the HW-Q800C Soundbar can also deliver outstanding 3D sound with the support of Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technology, providing authentic sound quality in movie actions, music playback, and gaming.


Buy or no buy?

In conclusion, the Samsung HW-Q800C is undoubtedly an exceptional home theater soundbar that offers a variety of sound experiences with its innovation. Especially, the Q-Symphony compatible allows users to enjoy the most remarkable surround sound experience from both the Samsung TV and Soundbar without having to mute the TV volume beforehand.

The Samsung HW-Q800C Soundbar and subwoofer pairing represents a popular choice for those seeking a seamless and fantastic home theater audio experience. Its combination of simplicity in design and setup places it among the top competitors in the market. If you wanted to learn more about Samsung HW-Q800C Soundbar, feel free to check it out here.
