One-minute review

The Samsung HW-Q950T soundbar isn’t the newest model on the shelf (an honor that belongs to the newer Samsung HW-Q950A) but it does remain a top contender on our list of the best soundbars. Despite being a few years old, the former flagship ups the channel count from its predecessor to a remarkable Dolby Atmos / DTS:X-friendly 9.1.4 configuration, despite sporting a slimmer form, and introduces a host of genuinely useful new smart features. All without costing more than its illustrious HW-Q90R predecessor.

Overall, the 9.1.4 system is pretty remarkable for a soundbar, and is clearly tailor-made for the object-based sound delights of today’s Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio formats. Audio streaming is supported over both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which includes Hi-Res Audio file formats, and even lets you connect with certain phones just by tapping them against the soundbar’s bodywork.

Physical connectivity is fair for a premium soundbar, comprising two HDMI inputs, one HDMI output (with eARC support for obtaining lossless Dolby Atmos / DTS:X soundtracks from compatible TVs) and an optical digital audio input.

The Q950T’s sound quality is, in a word, incredible. At its heart is the ability to deliver even the most dense, most layered and most complex of movie mixes with huge amounts of power, and without a hint of weakness or distortion from any of the system’s many speakers. The sound can fill even huge living rooms with a fantastically large, complete and immersive bubble of audio, delivering levels of bass depth, mid-range openness and treble detailing that haven’t been heard before outside of a strong, large-speakered system.

Price and availability

  • The HW-Q950T is widely available across the world
  • It costs £1,499/$1,399/AUS$1949
  • A 7.1.2-channel version without the rear speakers, the Q900T, is also available

The Q950T is Samsung’s top-end soundbar for 2020, so it’s no surprise to find it wearing a top-end price. As we’ll see, however, you do get plenty for your £1,499/$1,399/AUS$1,949 in terms of raw power, speaker channels and features.

The closest rival to the Q950T right now – in that both offer full Dolby Atmos speaker setups, including front and rear height channel drivers – is probably the LG SN11RG. This comes in £200 cheaper but, unlike the Q950T, doesn’t carry rear side-channel drivers. 

In particular, the Q950T would make the ideal partner to Samsung’s latest high-end TVs thanks to its Q-Symphony feature, which allows the speakers in the TV and the soundbar to work together, adding extra height and presence to the soundstage.

Also available is the Q900T, a version of the Q950T without included rear speakers, which costs £1,099/£1,099/AU$1,549.

  • Slimmer profile for the main soundbar
  • Wireless subwoofer and rear speakers included
  • 9.1.4 channel configuration

At first glance, the Q950T’s compact but robust rears and hulking subwoofer don’t look very different to those of its HW-Q90R predecessor. It turns out there is a difference, though: the introduction of Kvadrat cloth covering each speakers’ drivers.  

Personally, I preferred the older design, at least where the rears are concerned, but in truth you’re unlikely to see a noticeable difference from a distance.

The main soundbar element looks very different to that of the Q90R. For starters, at just 69.5mm it’s almost 14mm slimmer. While this may not sound like much on paper, in the flesh it’s significant – and means the Q950T will fit more easily under a wider range of TVs.

The Q950T’s main bar also replaces the metallic finish of old with black Kvadrat felt for its front and top edges.

However, the biggest design change finds the front corners of the soundbar now angling back at around 45 degrees. Not only does this work to make the soundbar more attractive, this design tweak reflects the inclusion of two new left-surround and right-surround speakers (for a 9.1.4 configuration), which reflect sound off your walls to create a more ‘filled in’ circle of sound around you. 

As with the previous flagship Q90R system, the ‘. 4’ part of this configuration refers to two upfiring drivers in the soundbar, plus one in each rear speaker.

One bizarre misstep in the Q950T’s design update finds its LED moving from the front edge to the top edge of the speaker’s rear; you can only actually see it when you’re standing next to it. It’s partnered in this daft new position by a button for toggling on and off a new built-in, Alexa-enabled far-field mic.

(Image credit: Samsung)

As far as indicators on the Q950T’s front edge are concerned, when you’re sat down you’ll see a tiny trio of lights that illuminate to register volume changes, and a small red light that illuminates if you have the far-field mic turned off.

All 20 of the drivers that go into producing the Q950T’s 14 channels of sound have been designed at Samsung’s US-based Audio Lab. Being able to do everything in-house has enabled Samsung to refine some aspects of the drivers. The main left, right and centre channels all benefit from dual woofers and wide-range tweeters, for instance, while the upfirers boast new processing that aims to broaden the overhead soundstage’s coverage and impact.

Physical connectivity is fair for a premium soundbar, with two HDMI inputs, one HDMI output (with eARC support for obtaining lossless Dolby Atmos / DTS:X soundtracks from compatible TVs) and an optical digital audio input. A third HDMI input and possibly a USB port for playing audio from USB drives would have been welcome, but what’s included should suffice for most people.

If you happen to have a Samsung phone running Android 8.1 or higher, you can connect it wirelessly to the soundbar simply by tapping the phone against the main soundbar’s chassis. Plus, as you would expect, there are also Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connection options for streaming audio from other networked sources.

The Wi-Fi support in conjunction with Samsung’s SmartThings phone/tablet app enables streaming from Apple Music, Amazon Music, Samsung Music, Spotify, TuneIn and Deezer accounts, while the audio file format support takes in Hi-Res Audio, AAC, MP3, OGG, FLAC, ALAC and AIFF.

Dolby Atmos and DTS:X content causes the soundbar to default to those playback modes, but there are a trio of processing modes available for ‘enhancing’ other audio content. The most interesting of these are a Game Pro mode, which claims to create a more immersive experience, and Adaptive Sound, which automatically tries to select the best audio experience based on real-time analysis of the content you’re playing.

One last key new feature is Q-Symphony. If you have a compatible Samsung TV then this feature will enable you to combine the soundbar’s audio with the TV’s speakers to create a larger soundstage.

Audio performance

  • Bags of power and detail
  • Fully rounded 3D audio experience
  • Meaty bass from the subwoofer

Worries that moving to a slimmer design might have compromised the Q950T’s sound quality are  shattered into pieces within just seconds of firing it up. In fact, it sounds more powerful than its foundation-rocking predecessor. 

The system is capable of hitting huge volumes – far beyond anything most ears will tolerate – without so much as a hint of rattling, distortion or fuzziness from any of its many drivers. Nor does the sound start to muddy in the mid-range or suffer harsh trebles as you start to drive it harder. In fact, if anything, the sound just gets better, more open and dynamic, the louder you drive it. 

Dynamic range is huge for a soundbar. Not least because the subwoofer delivers the sort of hugely deep rumbles you’d normally only expect to get with a high-end system of separates. Even the massive bass drops at the start of Blade Runner 2049 present no problem for the Q950T – and there’s no tougher bass test in the movie world than that.

However, the subwoofer is nimble enough to vary its output in terms of both frequency and volume, too, avoiding that ‘all or nothing’ trap into which soundbar subwoofers sometimes fall. 

The subwoofer’s nimbleness combined with the almost inexplicably wide dynamic range of the main soundbar element means that bass levels still feel like an integrated part of the soundstage. They don’t just hang distractingly off the bottom of the mix.

Voices sound both fantastically clear but also perfectly contextualised – and, crucially, they’re delivered with a wide enough dispersion to sound to make them appear as if they’re coming from the images onscreen, not trapped inside the soundbar.

The Q950T isn’t just about explosive power, though. In fact, one of the most obvious improvements over its predecessor is the subtlety with which it picks out even the tiniest details in a Dolby Atmos or DTS:X mix. Birds tweeting, distant dogs barking, leaves gently stirring in the breeze, creaking floorboards, chirruping crickets… not only are all such sounds perfectly audible without exaggeration or shrillness, they’re perfectly placed too. 

(Image credit: Samsung)

This placement of effects is as impressive in the rear speakers as it is in the main soundbar, revealing the Q950T’s rear speakers to be more sensitive and willing to get involved than those of its predecessor. In fact, the whole three-dimensional staging of the object-based sound formats is significantly improved over the Q90R, despite that model being excellent in that respect, too.

The new rear side channels ensure there are no gaps in the sound, even down the sides of very large rooms, and the improved front/rear balance, together with the new height channel processing, ensures the familiar Dolby Atmos dome of sound never sounds uneven.

These improvements also pay off handsomely when it comes to accurately conveying sounds panning across a movie mix, either back to front or side to side.

One last point about the Q950T’s sound is that its abundance of power means it’s unprecedentedly good by soundbar standards at escalating its performance to meet even the most mammoth of mixes. So where the LG SN11RG’s presentation actually tends to step back when a big movie mix piles on the pressure, the Q950T just keeps upping the amps to take on pretty much anything. It’s genuinely spectacular.

Given the degree to which the Q950T is tuned for Dolby Atmos / DTS:X movies, I couldn’t help but be slightly apprehensive about how it would handle music. Happily, though, while its approach to music is certainly on the muscular side, the new drivers are sufficiently refined to ensure content feels balanced and convincing, with plenty of subtle detail, a pleasing stereo presence, and slightly elevated (vertically) vocals that never sound either shrill or swallowed.

The dynamic range continues to be prodigious with music, too, hitting bass levels you probably never knew existed in your favourite songs, ensuring low frequencies never become over-dominant or thuddy.

I’d recommend sticking with the Standard playback mode for music, since Adaptive mode tends to get too aggressive/over dynamic, and the Surround and Game modes can sound a bit artificial.

Finally, using the Game mode for the purpose for which it’s intended is pretty interesting. With non-Dolby Atmos game soundtracks (Atmos tracks default to the soundbar’s Atmos mode), the Game preset doesn’t only generate a more intense-sounding surround sound experience, but it actually manages to create what feels like an object-based, three-dimensional soundstage, where sound effects seem to appear from thin air rather than just from the speakers.

I’d still use a Dolby Atmos or DTS:X mixer in a PC or games console where one is available, but the Q950T’s Game mode is worth trying with other gaming systems.

Should I buy the Samsung HW-Q950T?

Buy it if…

You want fantastic movie sound
No other soundbar can rival the Q950T for raw power and dynamic range, and its unprecedented channel count helps it create a peerlessly immersive soundstage.

You want compact speakers in your living room
While you could get a decent system of separates for the money the Q950T costs, the Samsung system gives you much, if not all, of the performance of such a system from a remarkably compact set of speakers. 

You want to use your soundbar with a wide range of sources
As well as carrying two HDMIs and an optical audio port, the Q950T features easy-to-set-up Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support. If you have an Android 8.1 Samsung phone, you can even connect it to the soundbar by simply tapping it on the soundbar’s bodywork. 

Don’t buy it if…

The size of speakers doesn’t bother you
If you do some research, you may be able to put together a sound system of separates that could slightly outperform the Q950T. But be aware that such a system would leave your room cluttered with relatively large speakers and spools of cabling.

You don’t want rear speakers
If space is limited, or you just don’t like black boxes sitting all around your living room, you could do away with the Q950T’s rear speakers – and save yourself a few hundred quid – by opting for the Q900T system instead.

You don’t have cash to spare
While its power and performance justify its £1,499/$1,399/AUS$1,949 asking price, this is still a lot of money to spend on a surround sound audio system. If money is tight, and you understand the performance compromises involved (or have a very small living room), you could pick up a decent soundbar/subwoofer system for around a third of the price.

This Samsung Q950TS review is T3’s in-depth look at Samsung’s latest flagship TV, a showpiece for all the things 8K QLED screen technology can achieve, and the winner of the prestigious Best TV award at our T3 Awards 2020. We’ve tested the Samsung QE75Q950TS, which is the 75-inch model, though you can also get it in 65-inch and 85-inch versions in the UK.

The Q950TS is Samsung’s latest attempt to sell you something you didn’t know you wanted. 8K is hardly the must-have tech, for most, it still seems almost ludicrous – but the idea of 33 million pixels of detail (compared to the suddenly minuscule 8 million pixels of 4K) certainly sounds tempting. Of course, right now you’ll struggle to find much 8K content available to watch, and it’s unlikely to come flooding in rapidly either.

• The best 8K TVs & the tech explained
• The
best TVs of all kinds

But Samsung sees a world that isn’t so reliant on content being the exact right format for your screen. While it is actually working to help make 8K the default resolution for broadcasters and streaming services sooner rather than later, it’s also aiming to make its 8K TVs the best 4K TVs you can buy.

Its AI-based upscaling technology is intended to make Netflix, Amazon Prime Video Disney+ and anything else you watch look appreciably better – more detailed, and more lifelike – than even the best 4K TVs can manage.

Can it possibly be true?

Samsung Q950TS review: Price and features

The Q950TS is Samsung’s flagship 8K QLED range for 2020. In the UK, it’s available in 65-inch and 85-inch screen sizes as well as the £7,999 75-inch variant we’re testing here. The 65-inch version costs a mere £5,999, while the whopping 85-inch screen is yours for a giddy £11,999.

In the US, only the 85-inch version of this specific model will be available, for $12,999. However, the US will get a different version of this TV at other sizes, called the Q900TS – we’ll go into how they differ in just a moment, but the image quality and technology inside is exactly the same, which is the important part. The Q900TS comes in 65 inches for $5,499, 75 inches for $7,499 or 85 inches for $9,999.

As far as features go, the 75Q950TS is as fully loaded as you’d expect a flagship TV from a global brand to be.

There’s that enormous resolution, obviously – information is power, after all, and the more pixels your TV is packing, the greater its potential for detail, accuracy, precision and all the other critical picture-making disciplines.

Then there’s connectivity. The Samsung has dual-band Wi-Fi on board, of course, and as far as physical connections go you’re looking at four HDMI inputs (one of which is HDMI 2.1-compliant), three USB sockets, RF and satellite TV aerial posts, an ethernet input and a digital optical output. What’s especially pleasing and convenient about them, though, is the fact that Samsung has taken them off the TV.

All connectivity and related hardware, including power, is housed in a fairly big box called One Connect, which joins to the screen itself using a single, slim umbilical cable. So the 75Q950TS is less problematic to wall-mount, and looks less cluttered once it’s up there, than any other massive TV you care to mention.

This is where we come to the variant version – the Q900TS, which will be available in some territories, including the UK and the US. It’s exactly the same for image quality and processing, but doesn’t include the external One Connect box – instead, all the ports are on the TV, like with most other sets. This makes the TV a bit thicker, but it will also be cheaper, as you saw from the US versions above – we’ve seen retailers list £6,999 for the 75-inch version and £4,999 for the 65-inch version.

• Buy the Samsung 65Q900TS from Currys for £4,999

• Buy the Samsung 75Q900TS from Appliances Direct for £6,999

Every HDR standard bar Dolby Vision is catered for here, and the Samsung’s ability to to control each of its 480 zones of full-array backlighting down to an individual level means the Q950TS has the best chance of delivering deep, lustrous black tones and bright, clean whites even if they’re sharing the same scene.

As far as sound goes, Samsung has taken quite decisive steps to address criticism of the audio quality of its 2019 8K TVs. Here it’s deployed something called ‘Object Motion Tracking +’ – it’s basically an array of eight speaker drivers arranged, roughly, in a 4.2.2 configuration. That’s two mid-range drivers and two low-frequency drivers deployed near the bottom of the screen, a couple of mid-range drivers at the top, and one high-frequency driver on either side of the screen about halfway up.

With this arrangement, Samsung intends to offer a bigger sonic presentation than is usually associated with flatscreen TVs, and offer a degree of audio tracking of on-screen motion at the same time.

(Of course, anyone with £8K for a TV burning a hole in their pocket really ought to be budgeting for a sound system to do these images some justice – but Samsung should nevertheless be commended for its efforts.)

Samsung Q950TS review: Picture performance

As already mentioned, native 8K content is conspicuous only by its absence. So the fact that the few minutes of USB-mounted 8K stuff this review TV came with looks stunning in its detail levels, strength of contrasts and effortlessly controlled motion is, frankly, neither here nor there. 

What the 75Q950TS needs to do is upscale 4K and Full HD content to the sort of standard that’s going to make a £7,999 price tag seem reasonable.

Happily, the Samsung proves an extraordinarily capable upscaler. No matter if you feed in 4K stuff from Netflix, from Amazon Prime Video or via an Ultra HD Blu-ray player, it absolutely maximises the potential of the content.

A lot of this remarkable show of strength is down to the work Samsung has done with AI and machine learning. The Q950TS’ processing was trained on a colossal database of images, against which it is able to cross-reference the pictures it’s being asked to display – this makes its upscaling more accurate and convincing, and also constantly builds the TV’s relevant knowledge. On a technological level alone, it’s deeply impressive.

This ever-increasing refinement of the screen’s upscaling is complemented no end by the quality of its backlighting. Because it’s a full-array screen, with lighting behind its pixels across the entirety of the screen rather than just around the edges (as some less capable, and less expensive, screens deploy), the Samsung is able to exhibit real dexterity when it comes to the light and shade of the pictures it produces. 

There are 480 discrete zones where it can dim the backlight to make blacks in that part of the image look truly black. That’s a lot of dimming zones, and to be able to control each of them individually is notable.

(Image credit: Samsung)

What it means for the viewer, then, is that the screen can generate intense peak brightness levels far, far beyond what any OLED TV can achieve, keeping white tones bright, clean and detailed while avoiding bleaching.

It means black tones are deep and glossy, yet alive with nuance and detail. And it means the 75Q950TS can do this even when the blacks and the whites are sharing the same screen. Allied to a gratifying lack of reflectivity from the screen itself, plus excellent off-axis viewing quality, it means the Samsung looks accomplished right from the off. 

And in every other aspect of picture-making too, the Q950TS just flat-out impresses. It can provide a remarkably extensive colour palette, so no nuance of shade is too fine to escape it. It serves up skin-tones and -textures confidently, making even the booziest or most rugged complexion believable. 

It handles motion, both rapid and leisurely, with complete authority, tracking on-screen movement (in any direction) without alarms. And it generates plausible depth of field too, so big panoramic scenes are deep enough to be credible. 

Edges are drawn smoothly, and picture noise is kept to an absolute minimum. Only images of unbroken, uniform colour – a big Arizona sky, say, or a football pitch, can make the 75Q950TS betray just how much work its upscaling engine is getting through with small imperfections.

Step down in quality to some bog-standard Full HD via BBC iPlayer or a 1920×1080 Blu-ray disc and the Samsung is, if anything, even more impressive. There’s not the absolute confidence in evidence as with 4K material, naturally enough – edges can shimmer, slow-panning movement lacks a little certainty, and picture noise escalates from a rumour to a mild, but definite, fact. 

But consider this: the 75Q950TS is taking just over 2 million pixel’s-worth of information and turning it into a picture of over 33 million pixels. Bear that in mind and the slight softness and relative lack of detail in these images is trifling.

Samsung Q950TS review: sound quality

This is not an area of such total success as the image quality. There’s no doubt the 75Q950TS sounds bigger, more spacious and better separated than the flatscreen TV norm – and it’s equally true to say that sound does follow motion around the screen, though somewhat vaguely.  

But the most obvious thing about the way the Samsung sounds is that it’s hard, flat and bright to the point of discomfort. This uncompromising sonic signature is about as inappropriate for the luxuriousness of the images it accompanies as it’s possible to imagine.

As we said before, we doubt those budgeting this much for a TV will be unable to find money for separate speaker system, so it shouldn’t ultimately affect the thing you actually got the TV for, but this is your reminder that yes, you should buy one of the best soundbars, or a full surround sound or Dolby Atmos system.

(Image credit: Samsung)

The design of the Q950TS is remarkable for a couple of reasons. Of course, all anyone wants from their pricey new TV is as much screen as they can accommodate and little of anything else – and the Samsung delivers. 

Its bezel is an astonishingly brief 2mm wide, which means it is – to all intents and purposes – invisible when you’re sitting an appropriate distance from the screen.  

And the depth of the chassis is almost as remarkable. Because Samsung’s QLED technology requires backlighting, it will never be as eye-poppingly slim as the OLED alternatives it wishes to usurp.

•OLED vs QLED: the technologies explained

But because Samsung has taken as much of the electrical gubbins out of the frame and put it in the One Connect box instead, there is no OLED-style bulge or extrusion here. Instead, the 75Q950TS is a consistent 15mm deep across the whole of its chassis. So while it’s not phone slim, it’s slimmer than a laptop. Which is virtually the same thing at this scale. 

Control is via a small, weighty remote control featuring only as many buttons as is essential. It feels upmarket in the hand, and Samsung has somehow managed to make the button-presses feel expensive, which is no easy feat. And it’s also possible to operate the Q950TS using Amazon Alexa voice-control, with Google Assistant in the pipeline too.

No matter how you choose to operate the screen, though, you’ll be accessing one of the most agreeable user interfaces in all of TV-land. Samsung’s Tizen-based operating system has had its background colour changed from white to pale blue for 2020, but in every other respect Samsung has left a winning formula well alone. 

This OS is logical, rapid, intuitive, sensibly laid out and easy to customise – and it features each and every worthwhile catch-up TV/streaming service app (up to and including Apple TV with AirPlay 2, and Disney+) as well as a whole stack of less high-profile alternatives.

Samsung Q950TS review: final verdict

There’s no doubt the Samsung Q950TS is a niche choice. It’s madly expensive and it’s specified well in excess of any mainstream standard of stream or broadcast. 

And yet the 75Q950TS makes a compelling case for itself: it’s big, yet discreet by the usual big TV standards, and it makes 4K content look better than the majority of flagship 4K TVs can manage. It is the best 4K TV on the planet right at this moment – being an 8K TV too is almost a bonus. It’s a demonstration of the current state of the TV art.

Samsung Q950TS review: the alternative choices

Samsung Q90R
If you want something that comes close to the HDR and amazing contrast performance of this set, but with 4K, we’d heartily recommend the Samsung Q90R – but bear in mind that this is last year’s model, so the processing is slightly less advanced (not much of a problem, since it’s not 8K), and it also won’t be around for much longer! A 2020 version of the Q90R is coming (called the Q90T), but it’s actually not as highly specced as the 2019 model, so if you like the sound of it, don’t delay!

• Read our full five-star Samsung Q90R review

Samsung Q800T
Samsung is introducing a second 8K TV this year – the Q800T has the same processing and smart platform, and that colourful and detailed 8K QLED panel, but the backlight is less bright and has fewer dimming zones. It’s still very high-end stuff, but quite as high-high-end as the Q950TS for HDR performance. But you’ll still get the better-than-4K upscaling, so if you want to go big but for a bit less cash, it’s a really strong option.
