    I Love this System

    |
    Posted .

    2 months in....I did tons of research into so many different setups and brands. JBL did not disappoint. I love the 4K HDR pass through ability the system provides to run all my HDMI cords through. The sound is crisp, loud, and the bass rocks my home. The system is very sleek and it mounts well to my wall under my TV. The subwoofer is nice and the star of the show. The midrange sound is good but not great, but you won’t be let down. The remote controls various aspects of the sound and inputs. I would recommend to those who are looking for a system that pounds and really brings movies and gaming to life.

    I purchased the JBL 3.1 after listening to 15 different soundbars. I wanted a soundbar that reproduced sound as intended, without that manufactured sound of which so many seem to suffer. I will be using this strictly for movies and TV, listening to music is not a primary function or concern. The 3 HDMI inputs are great as I wanted to keep the TV connections to a minimum. It also features an optical, analog and USB port as well as built in Bluetooth wireless connectivity. Setup was a breeze, wireless subwoofer sync was quick and easy, Bluetooth as well. Bass response is strong without being overpowering, you can adjust as needed. It comes with pre-programmed listening modes as well (standard/music/movie, etc). The difference is subtle at best. It comes with analog and HDMI cables. You'll need additional cables based upon how you plan on connecting. If your primary concern is TV and movies give this a listen.

    Great Sound. Better Than All In This Price Class

    Posted .

    I originally purchased the Samsung 2.1 soundbar. While it was decent (and it sounded better in the store...be careful as I learned afterwards the Samsung in the store was also using some other speakers to help the sound---I think additional surround speakers). Anyway, I returned the Samsung soundbar the next day. Now, I get that it was a 2.1 and this JBL is a 3.1 system. I think the biggest difference in the 2 systems is the amazing subwoofer that comes with the JBL. It is just room rattling power. You can with the included remote turn up or down the sub's bass in 30 increments all displayed on the digital display neatly hidden in the sound bars speaker (this in itself is very cool). You can also choose from different modes (movie, voice, music, etc) on the sound bar via remote. You can turn on surround which sounds great while watching a movie. I can't see how anyone could be disappointed with this sound bar setup. Now, this isn't on my main TV in the family room. For that, I am using a large Def Tech system with a huge subwoofer and subs in the center channel and it's just a crazy overdone system (which sounds fantastic but my point is I know great sound when I hear it). I can't see spending over $1000+ for a soundbar and at that point you opt for the separate components and build a surround sound system. But, at the current sale price of $399 and when I purchased at $499 I think you'd have a hard time finding a better system. JBL is a company I have used for over 30 years going back to my home speakers in the mid 70's and car speakers not too many years after that. They primarily build great sound. Trust me and get this system, you won't be disappointed!

    Bought this after comparing many models and settled on this model. Compared this to Polk with Alexa enabled, while it was good it was getting super hot owing to Alexa integration(may be). The woofer is a good size and pairing was a breeze. my tv is mounted up the fireplace with a pull down (mantel mount - amazing one!) for viewing at eye level. The biggest disappointment was the sound coming off my Sony tv which was owing to the fact it had no wall to bounce the sound off when pulled down. I give it 4 stars as the included hardware is for Wall mount as against fixing under a mounted TV. a quick trip to Home Depot solved the problem. Very happy and will recommend this product.

    All the bass you could possibly want

    Posted .

    I have been enjoying this system for a couple of weeks now. This is to compliment my new Samsung 65" MU8000 tv I bought last month. Setup was fairly easy. It took a couple minutes for the tv to acknowledge the sound bar and send sound. Once it did, it detected the subwoofer automatically. When comparing sound bars, I am surprised the manufacturers don't emphasize the importance of 4k pass through and why it matters. Case in point, I went to the store dead set on getting a Samsung sound bar since I read that I would be able to control the soundbar with the remote that came with my Samsung tv (one remote replaces the many) automatically. Reading the reviews, I thought I would get the 550 Samsung with the surround speakers(additional cost). I went to the sound bar display and found a lower model Samsung(350 or 450) and it sounded ok.....bass was not quite what I wanted. Then I listened to this JBL and it blew me away. I noticed that the Samsung had one hdmi input and the JBL had 3. I didn't understand why I needed that and would just use Bluetooth. I found a salesman and asked to see the 550 Samsung, since I didn't see it. It was connected to a tv in another area and I listened. It was good....not as much bass, but decent. So I asked him if I would have to manually connect the JBL over Bluetooth every time I turned on the Samsung. He educated me and said that's not the best way to do it because Bluetooth wont support Dolby Atmos. He told me to run all devices to the HDMI ports on the sound bar and run one to the ARC HDMI port on the tv. I realized id be limited with the Samsung I was looking at since it had one HDMI input compared to the 3 on the JBL. Doing it this way gives the best sound, I control it with the tv remote, and watching Game of Thrones looked even better. I attribute this to the tv processing video but leaving audio to the sound bar. The sound bar sounds clear and as loud as I want. The Sub hits low frequencies hard. Watching Force Awakens, Last Jedi, Predator, Game of Thrones and the Fast and Furious movies have never sounded so good and realistic. Only option that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is that it does not appear to be able to add surround sound speakers to it.

    I saw that this was on sale so I bought it for my mom and dad. Why? Because I have the same one I purchased 2 years ago and it is rock solid! The clarity is amazing with thunder striking bass in the wireless subwoofer. I have it in my living room that is a 15x20 room, the bass module is on the opposite side of the room, I must say in that size room there are some void spots where the bass is not so present but I’m sure if I were to move it closer to the sound bar there wouldn’t be any void at all! Once again GREAT product might pick up a third for the master bedroom.

    For this cost tier I am satisfied. Highs and mids are clear and decent. Bass is very strong and solid. Setup is quite simple and took about 3 minutes. Remote is straight forward and intuitive. Used on a 75" Samsung in a large, high ceiling, open room.

    Waited awhile and read a lot of reviews before purchasing this soundbar. Even went to the store to compare. At the store, the bass was unmatched with this model. It'll rattle your windows! Excellent sound quality, styling is good, functionality is good. We have had a few instances where the subwoofer was picking up outside Interference and had a very low rumble to it. I just unplugged the unit and plugged it back in, seemed to fix the problem. We've plugged it into the tv using ARC, this allows the tv remote to control volume and power. The unit goes into standby when the tv powers off. Very nice system, would definitely purchase again.

    It slams! For the price, it beats out any other system by far. Not many have 10" subs in that price range. Connects smoothly via Bluetooth, never an interruption in signal. Currently stream via Fire tv and it connects well to the JBL system. It also a lag timer, so you can make sure the sound matches with the video. Other systems don't have this feature, so sometimes when you are steaming and are connected via bluetooth, the words coming out of someones mouth doesn't match up with video. Not with this system! I have this system in my bedroom and it is almost as loud as my main setup, which is a 12" Sub and 2 martin logan bookshelf speakers. No, the jbl system is not has clear and crisp as the martin logans, but for the price, you can't beat this setup!

    Let me start out by saying wow, I have a few jbl speakers and they sound excellent, was very impressed with this speaker bar. The highs and mids on the bar itself sound great and the sub hits super hard for a 10". When i first heard it i was astonished. Everything about it is great. The only serious thing that really upset me was how it was shipped I got home and it was literally sitting outside in it's own package as if it was in the store so the whole neighborhood could see what i bought. But other than that good job jbl keep it up.

    I bought this soundbar because I had been a long time fan of JBL, as in my experience with car audio they make high quality products. However, like many reviews of this product have stated, this is a very bass heavy setup with an obvious low-miss scoop, and I prefer a more balanced sound, so I returned it. I have no doubt that it is a well-made soundbar but unfortunately the tonal characteristics were not what I was looking for. Buying a sound system sometimes requires making a few returns but my local Best Buy helped me through the process, which I greatly appreciate.

    This thing THUMPS

    Wow - this absolutely beats the pants off of the similarly-priced units from Sony, Samsung, Polk, Klipsch and everything else I saw on the floor. It has 450w of total power and the 10” woofer really hits hard. Seriously it’s huge and heavy, make sure you have room for it. The bar part itself has 6 speakers in it but is light and manageable. The LED readout is bright enough to be visible from the couch but automatically turns off after a few seconds so it’s not annoying during shows. Great sound bar.

    Our Samsung sound bar bass speaker died and we were looking to replace it. Have a wireless JBL speaker that is fantastic so checked out the reviews. They were good but we were hesitant to spend more than planning, but man was it worth it! The sound out of this thing is fantastic! I love bass and this provides. Set-up was simple and quick and switching back and forth from tv to Bluetooth music is fantastic! More than happy with our purchase and would highly recommend!

    The system is super easy to connect. Just connect it with a HDMI cable to TV's ARC HDMI port. It works flawlessly right away. The bass unit looks very cool and produces amazing bass tone and power. I have been using Bose Acoustimass 15 (5.1) for years at my basement and bought this for the living room as it will be easy to install and no cable around. But well, it sounds even beter than Bose 5.1 system. Specially from the bass point of view, it beats Bose for sure. Both the tone and the power.

    Love this soundbar .. if you are seeking a new soundbar and need multiple HDMI ports, this is the product for you. Other bars with high amount of HDMI ports are very costly. This brings home the performance without breaking the wallet. Switching between inputs was seamless. No need to program directv remote either for those of us who haven’t cut the cord on cable/satellite. This bad boy pumps out plenty of bass as well for the average size living room. The next model up 5.1 channel.. is probably a beast, but this 3.1 is a monster I’m happy with.
