Samsung wam7500 Portable Speaker, Average Sound Quality – Too Expensive

Good quality speaker at a good price. Pity doesn’t connect with apple music.

After a false start (the first speaker delivered was faulty; it would not connect to wi-fi) the speaker sounds great. Good rich sound from a powerful speaker. However the description of it being ‘portable’ is misleading. This is not one you would wish to move frequently. The power lead is far too short which rather limits it positioning and the speaker has a good weight to it.

I think the sound quality is ok but it’s not been used for any length of time yet and may improve as firmware gets updated etc. I compared the sound quality and ‘room filling’ capabilities to an second generation echo and the echo does sound warmer and seems to fill the room better.

Comments from buyers

“Fantastic Sound Quality
, Great speakers!
, Brilliant sound!

Great speaker, easy set up, and easy to use.

Brilliant sound, easy to connect and to control via the samsung app.

Great speakers, couldn’t believe the price so was a bit concerned if there was a catch, but everything was perfect and came as if bought from the store. The sound is pretty amazing and good deep bass that fills the whole room.

Top bit of kit, the white version was the premium colour and price. But samsung flooded the market with the white version. So the black version speaker became the harder to find in the end and was selling for a higher price than the premium white.

Great speaker disappointed can not get tripod stand for speaker to sit on been in touch with samsung don’t know where to get them.

So easy to set up – very pleased with sound, look, ease of set up and speed of delivery.

If this speaker had not been obtained at a substantially reduced price then the rating would have been 1 star lower. The speaker looks great and occupies minimal space. Althought the connectivity appears to be reliable the sound quality is at best average. The speaker is overly bright and the bass extension is nothing to write home about. Would rather listen to music on a £50 2. I think there are better value for money products out there if you have time to investigate other options.

I had the white one of these and absolutely loved it, definitely one of the most outstanding devices i’ve ever owned and heard, sadly i sold mine only to regret every minute of it, i bought a bose soundtouch 30 series iii and was shocked how bad it sounded compared to the r7 and i bought other devices and couldn’t get anywhere near the sound quality or build quality the r7 had, so i took the plunge again and bought the black one and my goodness what a speaker the r7 is absolutely outstanding in every respect, the r7 has hd sound unlike the other devices i bought and you can immediately tell the difference, don’t forget the r7 was £500 when first released and definitely a steal at the prices you can get them at now, i know what i’m talking about regarding these speakers and i will say this if you’re looking for the best sounding speaker on the market then get the r7 you definitely will not get better.

Great value for money, have 3 now all connected together, great sound, on the look out for more.
