Best Wireless Surround Sound Speakers

Wireless surround sounds speakers are called such because they pair wirelessly with the soundbar of your choice. Speakers can be set around your room to give you a movie theater sound experience with each speaker set to amplify specific parts of the sounds, for example the bass. The Samsung SWA-8500S is our top choice because it works with your existing surround sound system, or can be paired with a soundbar to create a basic set up. These speakers also are priced reasonably well and have the backing of Samsung’s reputation.

For small spaces
