The soundbars will be the first products to bear the Harman Kardon logo since Samsung's acquisition of Harman International back in 2016.
Both soundbars use up and side-firing speakers that Samsung claims "move sound naturally above and around listeners".
The HW-N950 is a 7.1.4 set-up, and includes two wireless surround speakers and a wireless subwoofer, while the HW-N850 drops the channel count to 5.1.2 and loses the wireless surrounds.
There are no pricing details at the moment, but Samsung claims both bars will sit in the "premium category". Our guess would be somewhere around the £700-£1000 mark.
It was a solid effort and a decent improvement on LG's previous offerings, so can Harman Kardon influence Samsung in a similarly positive way? We shall see.
