Samsung HW-B550 Picture


The Samsung HW-B550 is a 2.1 soundbar released in 2022. It's the next generation of the Samsung HW-A550 and performs quite similarly to its predecessor. It's a simple bar that's best for listening to stereo content, which includes most music and TV shows. If you want to improve its surrounds performance, you can add a Wireless Rear Speaker Kit, which is sold separately. However, there's no Dolby Atmos support to let you take advantage of more immersive formats on streaming platforms. You don't get access to Samsung's more premium features, like room correction, which optimizes audio to your room's unique acoustics, and Q-Symphony, which pairs the bar with compatible Samsung TVs for an enhanced sound.

 Our Verdict

The Samsung B550 is fair for movies. Dialogue reproduces with clarity and accuracy, and you have plenty of enhancement tools to customize its sound. However, you don't feel the deep thump in the low-bass during intense movie scores or action-packed scenes. You can't take advantage of more immersive object-based formats like Dolby Atmos, which you find on lots of streaming platforms. 5.1 surround sound formats like Dolby Digital are downmixed into stereo, which doesn't sound very immersive. However, you can always add a rear speaker kit if you want to improve its surround sound.
  • Graphic EQ and presets.
  • Dialogue enhancement feature.
