Upgrade your TV's sound

The HW-N550 is packing 340 watts of power so it's going to give you a significant improvement over your TV's built-in speakers. The dedicated center channel makes dialogue stand out, while the separate wireless sub delivers low-end rumble for movie and TV sound effects.

Made for each other

The sound bar pairs perfectly with most Samsung TVs because it was designed with them in mind. Its subtly angled sides give it a sleek appearance that will look great whether wall-mounted or placed on a TV stand. The included sub can go almost anywhere in the room and will automatically pair wirelessly to the sound bar after you connect them both to AC power.

Music options

Built-in Bluetooth allows you to wirelessly stream your favorite tunes from compatible devices directly to the sound bar. There's also a USB port so you can play music straight from a thumb drive.
