Good Bar + Bad Sub

The sounds bar is crisp and clean, and I love the metal grille. It's also plenty loud. Unfortunately you can't use the Samsung rear speaker kit with it, which I realized after buying it and spending some time with their tech support folks. "You'll need to buy a higher end soundbar to be able to use the rear speaker kit". The sub-woofer is rather cheap. The little speaker in it faces the rear, and the front is just a port for it. There is no discerning sound from it, just a wobbly low muffle. It you want to fill a small room with a low growl with no distinction to the overall sound, it kind of works.

  • from Barnsley

Good sound but

Sound is very good, but Bluetooth is horrible lost connection when you try listen music from any phone music is interrupted every time :-(

Samsung HW-K430 220-Watt 2.1

I bought this unit yesterday June 29 and am returning it soon. Its not defective or anything, its just not enough bass, setup was very easy though. Also you cannot control the volume with cable box remote as with the LG SHB5 does. All in all its small sound with light bass for smaller rooms.

  • from Wasaga Beach, ON

Bluetooth is terrible

Bought this as it was on sale and a good deal. Sounds good however the main reason I chose this was to use bluetooth. I literally have to have phone or computer less than 1ft away from the unit or else it skips and fast forwards. Have a free bluetooth speaker that came from some promotion and I can have device 20ft away from that and it works fine. Really disappointed with this samsung product.

  • from Oshawa

Great bang for your buck

Fantastic little sound bar. Sound it crystal clear and the bass is good for what it is. I was shocked how great the sound was for the price.

  • from Toronto, ON

Not worth it.

I bought this on sale, and I returned it within a week. First, the Subwoofer is essentially a "rumble Box" - the sound quality is at best Poor, but it will shake the floor and give you low-frequency effects, however without any clarity or definition. The soundbar itself is no better than the speakers on my particular Samsung 40" Smart TV. So, that's why I returned it. Also, I live in an apartment, and the Sub WILL disturb your neighbours if you live in one too. Again, the Sub works, but the sound quality is just not up to par. I'm happy without it, and so is my wallet, as it did nothing for my Sound Experience. I would not recommend buying this unit if you want to have better sound from your existing setup.

  • from Ontario


Very surprised at sound quality of this sound bar puts my samsung surround system to shame with the sound dimension and depth fantastic

  • from Toronto, ON

Bluetooth Distance

Sounds fantastic, bass it works well my only complaint is the distance for the Bluetooth i had to put my phone less than a foot away for it not to skip in and out of signal??? This wont see my man cave but for the main floor it sounds great.

BestBuy Online Order

It may be a good product and I will know when I get it delivered. But I would recommend to never order online from best buy Canada. You will be lucky if the product will ever arrive.

  • from Halifax, NS

Outstanding sound and clarity.

Keep the subwoofer 2to 4 feet apart for best sound quality.

  • from Toronto

Quality soundbar

I bought this for my condo and it's perfect. My parents have a similar one from a couple years ago and this one blows theirs out of the water. The sound is rich and the subwoofer is impressive for such a small box. Lots of options to customize the sound, including pre-set profiles for: music, movies, clear voice, etc. On top of the pre-set profiles you can adjust the bass, treble and faux-surround sound features. The difference between profiles is very noticeable and the Samsung engineers did a great job of tuning each profile. Aside from watching TV and movies, this set is good enough to play music for parties and I get compliments on it all the time. People are always surprised that such a little set can produce such deep bass and clear tones.

Hardest sound ever for techno music

I bought this for a better sound,you gonna have troubes with youre neighbours,or with you're hole neighborhood,everyone should have this

  • from Sault Sainte Marie, ON

A Small beast! Perfect for everyday use!

I had been looking for a soundbar/sub package for the past couple of months, watching sales and such, and I kept reviewing this specific model. I questioned if I would need more watts than the 220W provided in this package. But, I bought it on sale and set it up within 15 minutes. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. It is quite powerful and truly enhances the sound. Love the wireless features and bluetooth, it's great to set up numerous things (tablets, smart phone, etc.) The watts are much more than what I needed, so if you're hesitating remember you have a 30 day period to return it (if necessary), but I don't think you will because it really is good for the money. You will be pleased.

Absolute Garbage.

I chose to buy this one as the description stated the ability to connect to other devices to stream music (smart phone, tablet.. etc..) Picked it up in store, unboxed, hooked up, and I just couldn't figure out how to get my ipod connected. Called up Samsung support and they told me, because I do not have a samsung phone, the bluetooth will not work for me to stream from my ipod. Not only that, they said i would need a cord in order to play from ipod, and there was no guarantees it would work as the frequency etc etc, bla, bla, bla... I put the system right back in the box and returned to best buy within 1 hour of purchasing. The sales associate was able to point me towards a SONY sound bar that has all the ipod connections, WIRELESS. NO CORDS required. I was sold. It was only about 80 dollars more. and the box was significantly heavier than the samsung. This samsung model in particular, is garbage. Its 2017, like who needs uses cords anymore????

Sound bar

Sound quality is pretty clear. Does exactly what I wanted it for to watching movies and sports.

  • from Oakville, Ontario

Great sound for a good price

We bought this sound bar during the pre-Christmas Boxing day sale. We are very glad that we did. Not only are these speakers louder than the ones built into the TV, the sound is also much clearer. Connecting to our Samsung TV was simple. The TV picked up the Soundbar when it was turned on and on TV mode. I would highly recommend this Soundbar.

  • from Toronto, ON

Not confident in long term quality

I picked this up on sale after my Samsung 110W became dated. I live in a condo so it is the perfect size and the wireless subwoofer upsold me. It lasted two days on low volume before the speakers blew. Best Buy gave me a new one but I'm not confident that it will last. In hindsight, I should have got the Sony while it was on sale

Great sound bar

I'm very happy with the new Samsung sound bar. Good sound. How did I watch movies without it !?!?

  • from Ottawa, ON

Great soundbar

As advertised, this is a good Samsung soundbar. Delivery was prompt, setup easy, instructions were clear. I almost returned it because I could not get the optical cable to connect. I didn't realize that the optical cable has small pieces of plastic at each end. That makes it impossible to plug into the TV and soundbar unless one removes this small plastic bits. Thankfully that's behind me now - after removing the plastic ends, the cable connected securely and the sound is great!

  • from sydney


great unit .easy to set up and sounds great

  • from Thunder Bay

Just awesome

Crazy clear sound. I have the sub behind my sectional couch and it pounds. When I took it out of the box I was doubting it big time, but ended up super impressed with it. Blue tooth works great and I like being able to adjust everything like trebble,bass, sub.. Plus it has presets for movies, music, clear voice and sports

  • from Tecumseh, ON

Needed a sound boost

We have a flat screen TV with built in speakers at the rear. The sound was never the best. Bought this unit on sale and am very pleased with its performance. Also with different sound settings for movie, music, sports, etc. The blue tooth feature is also useful to stream music from other devices.. I have the wireless rear speakers on my 2017 wish list.

  • from Milton, ON

it is not!!! compatible with the wireless rear speakers

it works great! nice clean quality sound... however it this model k430 is not compatible with the wireless speakers kit! after investigating a little more, found out that the wireless speakers do not provide actual surround. So the bar by itself works fine.

  • from Ajax, ON

Best Buy price anchoring deception

Best buy deceived me into thinking I was saving "42%" off the regular price when purchasing this item on boxing day. I thought I was making a huge save on a high value product, only to find out that I only saved me 20% off from the regular price when the sale ends. Best buy used price anchoring by inflating the price to manipulate their customers into thinking the inevitable discounts are more impressive. Will never be trusting best buy ever again.

  • from Cornwall

Great buy!

I'm so happy I bought this system! Sound is great and it's easy to setup to my tv (LG3Dsmarttv). Looks great and it was fast shipping.

  • from Mississauga, Ontario

Great Buy

220W turned out to be enough sound

  • from Mississauga

Great Buy

Wasn't sure 220W would be enough, but it was more than I expected it to be.

  • from Burlington

Great sound

I wasn't sure if I needed a sound bar, but when the unit went on sale I figured I'd give it a try. The sound is unbelievable! Well worth the money. My only issue is that the Bluetooth range is really limited. When playing music through one of my devices, the device needs to be right next to the sound bar or else the music "skips" (randomly mutes) constantly. Other than that, I love it!

  • from Mississauga, ON

This one has sound so bad do not buy it

Do not buy it

  • from Ottawa, ON

Definitely recommend

We used some Christmas money to purchase this sound bar and having used it for a few hours now, I can definitely say we're not disappointed This is not the first sound bar I've had but first with a subwoofer. Super easy to set up with the optical digital cable. I mounted it to the wall using the material provided. Sound is terrific whether watching television or playing on PS4. We also picked up the option rear surround sound speakers which were easy to link and add a nice touch. Really can't go wrong for this price.

  • from Port Coquitlam, BC

Having issues with Bluetooth?

Both myself and my boyfriend's phone has spotty bluetooth connection with the speaker. Not sure if this is a lemon, if something is interfering with the connection, or if anyone else has had this issue... Otherwise a great product.

  • from kingston ontario

worked well until.....

Was very happy with the sound bar but now it periodically mutes. it is very annoying. picked up this sound bar on thanksgiving, so it really did not last very long.

  • from Windsor ON

Great Sound

Bought this Samsung Sound Bar and I'm very impressed. It was easy to set up, stylish and sounds awesome for the price. Well constructed and sleek. I strongly recommend anyone thinking of buy this product to buy it with confidence. Great value!

  • from Toronto, ON

I enjoy listening to this sound bar!

This sound bar is beautifully designed and has the amazing sound for TV watching and music listening. The subwoofer at default setting is a little bit low in volume but you can increase it through the remote. Unlike other sound bars, the talk on the TV is sharp and clear, although the background music can be low for someone. One way to correct it is to choose the 'sports' setting. The 'night' setting is very good as the voice is clear but the surrounding sound is not loud to affect others. Listening songs over it is my favourite activity now as the sound is so beautiful and touching.

  • from Brampton, ON

Does the job, not worth it for the price

I opened the box and started setting it up only to realize that the optical sound cable doesn't fit. Also for the price it should have had a hdmi port. sound quality is okay, bass could be deeper.

  • from London, ON

Easy to set up and Great Sound

I have a Samsung smart TV in my bedroom. I purchased this sound bar to enhance the sound quality. Given that it's a bedroom I didn't need a sophisticated home theatre set up. This sound bar with subwoofer was exactly what was needed. For the room size, the sound quality has been greatly enhanced. It was pretty simple to set up and works well. In terms of my skill level with electronics I'm no expert and it's not the first time I've set up speakers with wires and bluetooth technology. I would definitely recommend this product.

  • from Barrie, ON


Excellent speakers for the sell price

  • from Sidney, BC

Great Product

This system provides amazing sound quality and more than enough power for a large living room mated to a 50" TV. The only thing to keep in mind is your Smart TV must be Blue Tooth enabled for wireless function.

  • from Brampton, ON

Samsung sound bar with subwoofer

Happy with the sound. Good price for what I paid for it( on sale). Maybe get some rear speakers for them in the future. The subwoofer has some nice base

  • from Duncan, BC

Poor remote quality

This is a really nice unit. Great sound. Great look. But unless your couch is less than 4 feet away from you TV the remote won't work. This got returned because I needed to be able to control the volume from my couch.

  • from Scarborough, ON

Sound bar

Easy to set up. Great sound and nice to have the wireless feature. I like the fact that I can use bluetooth in order to listen to my music from other devices.

  • from Nepean, ON


Quality affordable simple

  • from Calgary, AB

KW 430 ..220 watts

Very good sound using Digital In and Bluetooth from smartphone. All devices though are Samsung so I could be Would recommend.

  • from Granby, QC

Bluetooth Disconnect

I only used this through Bluetooth but mine kept disconnecting and re-connecting every minute or so causing constant audio loss. I was satisfied with everything else (sound quality, looks, easiness to connect) but the fact that it disconnects makes it useless for me. I tried several devices that I connected to different Bluetooth speakers and the problem indeed came for this soundbar. I am returning it tomorrow.

  • from Victoria, BC

"Samsung Wireless Surround Kit "

"Can be paired with the Samsung Wireless Surround Kit (sold separately) to create a dynamic 4.1 channel audio system" Which kit is this referring to? The SWA-8000S is not compatible.

  • from Winnipeg, MB

Overall Alright

Decent sound. Bluetooth reception seems a bit wonky though. It buzzes and cuts out sometimes. Not sure why. Installation was easy though and TV sound through the cable works fine.
