Samsung and Harman Kardon introduced their first co-branded soundbars on Wednesday.
Two models debuted – the HW-N950 and HW-N850 — both Wi-Fi-enabled, Alexa-compatible models developed by Samsung and certified by Harman Kardon. Features include Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, Bluetooth and Samsung SmartThings compatibility.
The 7.1.4-channel HW-N950 comes with a main unit, four speakers and two wireless surround sound speakers, a built-in wireless subwoofer and a rear wireless speaker kit. The 5.1.2-channel HW-N850, meanwhile, features a main unit speaker and woofer.
They will begin shipping on Aug. 20; pricing wasn’t yet available.
Samsung acquired Harman International in March 2017. They have since collaborated on mobile products, including the AKG headphones bundled with certain Samsung mobile phones and tablets tuned by AKG, as well as professional solutions for cinemas with the JBL Professional brand.
