2015CES - Samsung to Unveil New and Expanded Audio Products at CES 2015

WAM7500/6500 and expanded Curved Soundbar lineup coming soon

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc., today announced a range of new audio products to be launched at 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show, including the WAM7500/6500 and an expanded lineup of Curved Soundbars.


WAM7500/6500 is a new concept for Samsung providing a rich-bodied sound experience no matter where you are in relation to the product. Unlike conventional speakers that project sound in a single direction, the WAM7500/6500 fills entire rooms with sound.

This breakthrough in approach to audio came through the utilization of proprietary 'Ring Radiator' technology which allows sound to flow in a 360-degree radius, with the perfect balance between treble and bass.

"We know how much people love music and that's why we are expanding our portfolio to bring high-quality, wireless audio into the home," said Jurack Chae, Senior Vice President at Samsung Electronics. "With the new WAM7500/6500 people can enjoy a vibrant sound wherever they are, while our new Curved Soundbars perfectly complement the TV viewing experience."

WAM7500/6500 was in part developed at Samsung's new state-of-the-art audio lab in Valencia, California and uses premium materials across the exterior of the speakers, allowing it to stylishly blend in with any home decor. It will be released in two models; Table Top (WAM7500) and Portable (WAM6500).

The Table Top Model offers a stylish build paired with premium sound quality. Portable model comes with a built-in battery so listeners can enjoy the best sound quality available whether they are at home or out and about. Both models seamlessly connect to TVs, soundbars and mobile devices.

Samsung also plans to unveil the world's first TV matching Curved Soundbar lineup, which has been expanded since its introduction in mid-2014. In addition to the 7500 series, Samsung will release the 8500, 6500 and 6000 series, extending the lineup to a total of four that optimally match Samsung's Curved TVs of various sizes--from 45- to 78-inches.

The newly-introduced 8500 series will also offer enhanced sound quality with its 9.1 channel speakers, thanks to a central speaker and additional side speakers situated at both ends. This will further intensify the immersive experience of the Samsung Curved TV by delivering a wider sense of surround-sound for the user. These products, and more, will be officially unveiled during CES 2015.
