Samsung announces Q Series soundbars optimized for QLED TVs

Samsung Electronics has announced the release of two new Q Series soundbars that feature Samsung Acoustic Beam technology, as well as the company’s new Adaptive Sound feature. This continues the Samsung Audio Lab and Harman Kardon collaboration, and the HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R are now “smarter than ever.”

Using Adaptive Sound technology, the HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R soundbars can analyze content played on a viewer’s TV and adjust sound settings for any given scene. Also, the HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R will automatically switch to Adaptive Sound mode when Samsung 2019 QLED TV is connected and its AI mode in on.

“Through Adaptive Sound, which understands the sound and optimizes it according to the scene, listeners can enjoy even more realistic sound for every genre of content,” said Jongsuk Chu, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “The new Q-Series soundbars carry sound quality that has been revitalized by experts and feature designs that offer an appealing home aesthetic to create a better home theater experience for our customers.”

The HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R also offer Samsung’s proprietary Acoustic Beam technology feature, which uses an array of holes in the speaker to create a “more dynamic, panoramic soundscape.” The Q-Series soundbars also feature Bluetooth connectivity for music from smartphones.

The HW-Q70R soundbar is equipped with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive audio, which previously was only available in high-end Samsung soundbar models. The HW-Q70R has a slim form factor, with a height of 2.3 inch (59mm), which Samsung says provides a better match with the QLED TV.

Samsung’s new soundbars will be available in April. For more information on Samsung soundbars, visit www.samsung.com.

  1. The HW-Q70R has a slim form factor, with a height of 2.3 inch (59mm), which Samsung says provides a better match with the QLED TV.

    That actually makes sense. Sammy's QLED sets tend to be a little short-legged, don't they?
