    This sound bar is an excellent choice for those who want a home theatre experience but without having to break the bank. This sound bar is compact has excellent Bluetooth connectivity and an impressive bass range for using an integrated subwoofer. I would absolutely recommend this sound bar to anyone seeking exceptional quality within a 200 dollar price range.

    soundbar works very well and its loud. The voices are very clearly. it’s lightweight easy to install and move around. The size is good. My tv stand is not too wide so the soundbar is a great fit.

    Hands down best soundbar I’ve purchased. Best Buy associate was very knowledgeable and kind and assisted me on my purchase. It has EQ for the best experience for every format. The bass is amazing the 3 channel is awesome and really allows immersive sound. 20/10!

    Sony rep pointed us this direction, away from a Bose, and away from Sony, because of intended purpose. This is outside, in a StormSheild TV cabinet, and does very well. Not a super amount of base, but for outside covered deck use, it does well and is pretty good upgrade from TV speakers, which is what we were after. Music does do a bit batter range via Bluetooth. I'd buy another. Only downfall is that it's not expandable to a sub, or rear speakers. But I'd still buy another.

    Sound quality is perfect and it does not take up much space at all. It’s an addition to my TV that sits above my fireplace. The price wasn’t bad either.

    Very decent sound. Great for a small living room and for the price. If you want a louder speaker get one with a subwoofer included. This does just fine for a little more noise. Want more the. I suggest soending a little more.

    We have a few JBL speakers and I’ve been impressed by JBL until now. This thing has half the volume capability of my 12 year old sound bar that i got for $100 on clearance (TOSHIBA). While the low end is nice, and is the reason we wanted to replace our old bar (sub died), I will be returning bc the high end is way too quiet. Dialogue is very very clear, though, if thats an issue for you. I will say, a much smaller room (10x12) made it sound better than in my (slightly) larger living room, but that isnt what i wanted it for. Even on sale ($120) its not worth the price. Id rather buy a jbl charge and link the bluetooth to my tv.

    We just needed a decent inexpensive soundbar to improve the sound for our TV. This JBL all in one did the trick. I have a fairly high end home theater system but to crank it up just to watch TV is overkill. I have a JBL Flip6 bluetooth speaker and love the sound from it. This soundbar uses two of their small "racetrack" style speakers like the one in my Flip6 along with a bass port and sounds great. It has bluetooth so I can send music to it from my phone or tablet too. It does everything we need and more.

    It sounds wonderful, I brought as gift for my son's game screen, but it was not compatable, so we re-purposed it and used it for the livingroom TV.

    Needed an upgrade from tv speakers. Picked this one for jbl's quality and the fact that it will be in a bedroom (didn't need a powerful system with a subwoofer). The sound is crisp with little distortion even when turned up loud. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it is not customizable. There is not an app to adjust bass/treble. Updating firmware is a hassle too. Overall, great speaker. Would buy again.

    I was actually going to stay with this soundbar because the sound was good enough for me and didn't need anything too crazy, just something that sounds better and a little louder than my TV speakers. It does have good sounding if you set the right audio settings in the device conntected to the speaker. With that, you'll get your bass. There are no other audio settings in the soundbar itself. I returned it because I got a defected one. As I switched to Dolby from PCM on my TV, it made a loud pop sound. Speakers are not supposed to do that. After that pop sound, the speakers kept popping anytime a video/audio starts at a higher volume. That got very annoying to hear. I did many things to fix it, but I think that pop sound blew the speaker as it didn't do it before switching modes on my TV. All happened on the same day I bought it. I was going to replace, but I heard the popping sound is a common JBL issue. Such a shame because I liked the audio and the basic functions. Will seek another brand.

    This JBL soundbar has a great sound for being a smaller soundbar. I bought it to replace an older soundbar for a secondary TV. It was easy to hook up using the HDMI ARC on the tv.

    We bought this for a smaller room, and even though the item looks smaller compared to other soundbars we were considering, the price was great and the audio level really packs a punch for it's smaller size. It gets loud but still sounds clear!
