Samsung UN55ES7500 3D LED HDTV Review$3,379.00
- Audio Quality
The audio quality on the ES7500 is good, but not great compared to surround speakers or a decent 2.1 setup. There are two 10-watt speakers on this TV that produce clean mid-range frequencies like voices. Our big complaint with the speakers is that they do not get very loud. You can crank the volume up to 100 and not be bothered by the sound at all. Having a loud TV does not make it better, but some consumers may have a loud fan or an air conditioner in their TV room and the max volume on the ES7500 might have trouble competing with those appliances.
There are five sound modes to choose from on this Samsung: standard, music, movie, clear voice, and amplify. Standard is your basic sound mode while music is supposed to make your favorite tunes sound better, although we didn't notice much of a difference with this setting on. Movie mode is the surround mode on this TV and it does create a slight surround experience, but it isn't much. Clear voice pushes mid-range frequencies like voices to the front of the audio mix while amplify was just a slightly louder version of the standard sound mode.
