I will comment on my own post now that I have bought both and can make a comparison. Well, there is no comparison. The Bose 700 system just blows the Samsung HW-N950 out of the water.
First of all the Samsung gave me nothing but problems since day one. Constant audio going on and off, cutting in and out, slow and buggy UI. The thing just never worked correctly. Horrible "Smart-Things app". I tried to do the firmware update through the app, and honestly it made the whole system worse to the point where I couldn't even get it to play sound.
When the Samsung did work, the sound was simply OK, uninspiring, lifeless, harsh. The sub woofer sounded almost non-existent. I played with all the settings and tuning and it just sounded OK. 5 out of 10 sound.
The quality of the system seems fair enough. Sturdy and good looking, but compared to the Bose, it's not even in the same league.
The Bose hooked up to my TV (Vizio 2018 P-Series 75) without one problem. Turned it on, updated automatically, and just glorious sounds from then on. Easy to use app, smooth and simple. Rich, Lush, Smooth, DEEP BASS, from this system. No other soundbar besides the SONOS can compare.
In conclusion, Stay far, far away from the Samsung soundbars.
Funnily enough, I've returned both of these systems to go back to my traditional 5.1 Speaker/Receiver setup lol. It's just not worth the price for these soundbars IMO!
