keeps losing signal

samsunglvr 11/30/2019

I bought this about 6 months ago and it worked great for about 3 months. Now i keep losing signal with it and it gets annoying. Wish there was a way to update it or fix the problem.

Please note if you pair this with Q60R Soundar

Xris 11/17/2019

After talking to Samsung support and a Samsung liaison rep at Best Buy it was told to me that when paired with the Soundbar Q60R that is already a 5.1 surround sound speaker it would become 7.1 surround sound. The problem with this is that almost everything you watch is 5.1 and sound does not come out of the rear speakers otherwise with any other audio format from a computer or apps built-in to the smart TV. This fact essential make this wireless rear kit useless with an existing 5.1 soundbar. No way around this concept. The 5.1 Soundbar Q60R's powerful sound is good enough and mimics surround sound nicely in a room with the adaptive sound technology. This wireless kit is not needed and ineffective with that setup. I just wanted to get this information out there because it is confusing and not marketed that way on Samsung website.

Very disappointed with the overall quality

Pete 11/11/2019

I purchased at Best Buy and was extremely excited to setup the rear speakers so I could "experience" surround sound in my living room. Let me just start off by saying the instructions aren't extremely detailed like they should be. The manual doesn't even explain how to raise/lower the volume. Trust me, the sound quality is VERY poor regardless if the soundbar is in "surround sound mode." The bass is non existant, just to give you an idea, the rear speakers bass is identical to an Amazon Echo. I can't even hear noise coming behind me lol unless I put the speaker a foot away from my ear. I have the Q70 Samsung/Harmon Kardon soundbar and was easy to connect. Overall, definitely avoid these unless you have a low end Samsung soundbar & only watch movies then maybe consider buying these.

No Rear Speakers

NotImpressed 9/16/2019

I keep losing signal from the rear speakers. I have tried resetting the whole system and starting over with the setup. I still get loss of signal from the rear speakers. The blue link light flashes when the signal is lost. No nothing is blocking the box from the sound bar. It's a straight line. Any ideas why the rear speakers are cutting out?

Fantastic Addition to My Soundbar

ScottPreston 9/12/2019

These are fantastic little speakers. It instantly turned my 3.1 into a room filling 5.1 full surround. I received an HW-R60C soundbar free with my new Samsung TV and was happy to find that I could add the rear channel. I am not a fan of 3.1 surround at all so I opted to add the rear channel for full surround. I found these gems on Amazon for under $90. I followed the included instructions and within minutes I had fantastic sounding 5.1 to compliment my soundbar. No problems whatsoever with either the rear speakers or the soundbar. My only gripe is the tiny mount hole on the back of the speakers. I wish they would have added a standard sized screw hole mount. My speaker stands don't have a small enough bolt to fit so I had to use the 2-way tape and set them atop the stands (see pic). Other than that minor issue, these babies rock!

Zeke8713 5/17/2019

One thing you have to make sure is that the rear speaker level is adjusted for optimal sound. At first I thought they were at their max, but found the soundbar had an option for increasing level like Subwoofer.

Sound keeps breaking and Customer care is horrible

Sago 4/27/2019

I bought this rear speakers in November 2018. Right from start, they have defect sounds keeps breaking from the rear speakers. I have spent multiple hours talking to customer service and sent it for repair twice. It still has the same issue. This third time, they expect me to again send it for repair. I am no more wasting my time over this product. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.

Definitely a good addition to my HW-N650.

DrChrisD 2/22/2019

I am really glad I purchased these in addition to the HW-N650. These speakers add that extra touch to really immerse you in whatever you are watching. I had to reduce the volume on the rear speakers because, at times, it made it difficult to hear spoken words coming from the main soundbar. I put these on stands next to the couch, so they are fairly close to ear level and can be a bit loud, but overall I am happy with these speakers.

Sound breaks from the rear speakers

sago 1/11/2019

I bought this a month ago and not very happy with the purchase. Connecting to soundbar was easy and sound quality is good too. but sound from rear speakers keeps dropping for a second or two. It spoils the whole TV watching experience.

Farm2Mark 1/4/2019

No problem pairing up with my HW-MM55/ZA soundbar but there is hardly any sound coming out. You have to put your ear up next to speaker to tell it is even working. Sound volume adjusted to +6 on both speakers. Waste of money in my opinion!!

Good addition to my HW-N6500 Sound Bar

Oldsubman 12/27/2018

Added these wireless speakers to my Sound Bar to provide a surround sound experience. Considering the reduced price of $70 they are a good value and provide a good listening experience. They were easy to set up and operate.

Wouldn't pair with M360 Sound Bar

HighlyFrustrated 12/19/2018

Bought this with the M360 sound bar and it wouldn't pair. First interaction with support said it was an issue with the sound bar and to open a ticket for service. Response from the service ticket was another round of trouble shooting and was told it was a problem with the rear speakers and to arrange a replacement. Was then told it could only be serviced and not replaced. So I just returned them in frustration.

Sound cuts out constantly

Brian I 12/10/2018

Bought these about 2 months ago and I have constant issues with the sound cutting in and out. The receiver is less than 10 ft away from my soundbar and it seems like the wifi signal cuts in and out. When it cuts out the receiver light blinks. Some days it never cuts out, others it's constant problem. And I just registered my speakers and of course the warranty is expired.... I am not happy with my purchase....

Cant setup real surround channels with this system

Hadjivasilev 12/5/2018

I bought a brand new Samsung SWA-8500S Wireless Rear Speakers to my Soundbar M360, but have a problem with surround settings. They just duplicate the stereo sound of front L and R channels and do nothing when I send multichannel surround sound from my computer. The rear speakers do not react to calibration and sound check at the behind speakers in any configuration (Quadraphonic, Surround, 5.1 Surround), only Stereo 2.0 and duplicate the stereo in behind. I was trying different configurations like direct connection with SPDIF cable from the computer or via TV, turning ON/OFF Surround mode and also Turning on/off Dynamic Range Control from the Soundbar. The speakers are fine but at this moment not a real surround.

cant sync to my n550.

tarskye 9/22/2018

I purchased this being assured it was comparable with my HW-N550 soundbar. The best buy "samsung genius" assured me it would be fine. After all hooked up correctly, it does not sync. There may be an alternative way, but the manual is seriously lacking in detail. Will return it tomorrow. Too bad I cant get the lost time back as well in the hook up, wiring, mounting of speakers, etc.

A decent set of speakers for the price.

zoomX2 1/31/2018

Overall, I'm very happy with this speaker kit. I paired them to the HW-M550 soundbar and they connected with no issues. As mentioned in another review, it did take some digging to figure out how to control them via the soundbar remote. Manuals for both the soundbar and this kit could be a bit better. My only complaint and reason for 3 stars for design is the length of the speaker cable provided. It makes it hard to find a spot to place the module so it is "out of the way" and still allow cable management.

Good speakers but a little light on sound

toekneesee 12/9/2017

I bought these surround speakers directly from Samsung. Delivery was almost instantaneous! Five stars for cost and speed of delivery. The sound is a little weak, sometimes barely audible, and there is no way to adjust the volume. Bluetooth connectivity to the sound bar was easy. Overall, I'm satisfied -- just not wowed.
