Samsung Announces New Q Series Soundbars


Samsung Malaysia Electronics has announced the release of four new Q Series sound bars that feature the Samsung Acoustic Beam technology and the new Adaptive Sound feature. As part of the Samsung Audio Lab and Harman Kardon collaboration, the HW-Q90R, HW-Q80R, HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R sound bars are smarter than ever, offering an immersive surround sound experience for home theaters.

“The new Q-Series sound bars carry a sound quality that has been revitalized by experts and feature designs that offer an appealing home aesthetic to create a more superior home theater experience for movie and audio buffs. The Adaptive Sound feature in our Q-Series sound bars understands the different sound settings and optimizes them according to the scene so that listeners can enjoy even more realistic sound for every genre of content,” said Jimmy Tan, Head of Consumer Electronics, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.

HW-Q70R & HW Q60R

Utilizing Adaptive Sound technology, the HW-Q70R and HW-Q60R sound bars can analyze content played on a viewer’s TV and adjust to ideal 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 is switched on.

The sound bars also offer Samsung’s proprietary Acoustic Beam technology feature. The Acoustic Beam technology uses an array of holes in the speaker to create a more dynamic, panoramic soundscape. These features will fill every corner of the room through a wide soundscape with full sound.

In addition, the HW-Q70R sound bar is equipped with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive, 360-degree surround sound technology, which previously was only available in high-end Samsung Soundbar models such as the HW-N950 and HW-N850. With the HW-Q70R, consumers can now enjoy an immersive home entertainment experience, with room-filling sound and overhead audio effects.

Along with the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X technologies, the HW-Q70R has a slim form factor, with a height of only 2.3 inch (59mm), which provides a better match with the QLED TV.

HW-Q90R & HW Q80R

Samsung has brought a 3D sound experience to life as well, through its new HW-Q90R and HW-Q80R sound bars. The Q80R is equipped with 13 speakers, including two upward-firing and two side-firing speakers; while the Q90R has 17 speakers, including four upward-firing speakers and two side-firing speakers. This allows these two sound bars to generate sound that moves around the listener, making the audio come from around and above.

In addition to that, the HW-Q90R comes packaged with a Wireless Rear Speaker Kit (two speakers), bringing listeners a true wireless surround sound experience. If there are consumers looking for a real 3D home theatre experience but dread all the wiring work, this is the sound bar set that is meant for you and your home.

Moreover, to make the setup of your TV and sound bar more convenient and wire-free, the HW-Q90R and HW-Q80R feature wireless connectivity to your Samsung TV via Wi-Fi, eliminating additional need for cluttered cables. These sound bars can also be controlled with your Samsung TV remote control as well, which means fewer remote controllers around the living room.

The HW-Q90R and HW-Q80R were made to keep up with video content of the highest quality. With 4K and HDR 10+ capabilities, high quality video sources can be connected through your sound bar to your Samsung TV.  Additionally, the Game Mode Pro optimizes sound specifically for gaming, therefore allowing gamers to fully immerse themselves in a whole new reality of interactive entertainment.

For smarter, easier integration into consumers’ lives, the new Q-Series sound bars also feature Bluetooth connectivity, allowing users to easily enjoy high-quality music from their smartphones.

The Samsung Q series sound bars are now available at all Samsung Experience Stores and Authorised Retailers at a recommended retail price as follows:

Model Recommended Retail Price
HW-Q90R RM 6,499
HW-Q80R RM 4,999
