Hisense H50N6800 sound: Not bad at all
The sound on the N6800 is actually a pleasant surprise. Of course, we’d recommend a good soundbar for getting the best from your telly’s sound, but at this price, the N6800 is pretty good really.
Movies sound full-bodied and there’s largely a good balance across the frequency range, except for a slightly harsh edge to the treble at very high volume.
There’s not quite enough detail there to pick out the finer subtleties in the audio, but dialogue is clear and there’s a good amount of energy to get behind bold soundtracks, too.
Hisense H50N6800 verdict
For the cash, the Hisense N6800 gives 4K HDR a good go, but ultimately it isn’t refined enough to be wholly successful.
There’s a lack of subtlety, its handling of HDR isn’t hugely convincing and detail is lacking in darker scenes. For the most part, this means it’s actually more accomplished when you're watching full HD content on it, rather than 4K.
Still, for the price it's all to be expected, and it is at the very least a good way to get an idea of what 4K HDR can offer. For a more convincing demonstration, you’re going to need to spend a little bit more.
