    Bought this sound bar to replace my surround sound system mainly because i have a 1yr old who kept dropping my speaker stands. Couldnt pass up the price! And i set it up above the tv therefore the little hands stay away. But this sound bar has an incredible sound,subwoofer is wireless and packs a punch. Highly recommend.

    I purchased because my Samsung TV's sound is very low, and this system really made my movie experience better than expected.. the only bad thing is that sometimes it gets disconnected from my TV. Other than that, I really like it.

    Finally!

    Posted .

    What a journey I had with getting a sound bar. A few months ago I bought a new tv and wanted to replace my small outdated soundbar. I did quite a bit of research and found an LG SH7B at a great price. I had it for awhile and it was better than my old Sony but not great. The sub started cutting out and their customer service was not good son I decided to return it and look for something else. I spent a couple days doing more research and got it down to Klipsch rsb-11, Polk Magnifi Max and this JBL Bar 3.1. I tried the Klipsch first and absolutely loved the sound. Everything was so clear and well defined. All went great until that night when I lowered the volume after the kids went to sleep and I heard a hissing/static noise coming from the bar while sitting about 10ft away. It wasn't anything super crazy but enough to drive me crazy. I bought a surge protector with "clean power", unplugged everything except the power cord and changed outlets. Nothing helped so I returned it and got a replacement. That had the same issue. I went to the Best Buy store and heard the same noise and also showed the salesman. I contacted Klipsch and they are saying it's normal. Now I know it's normal to hear noise from speakers but that's only when you are real close to it. Hearing it from 10 ft away while watching tv is not by any means normal. Others have complained about the same issue. It has good reviews for the most part so I'd say most people always keep their volume up, don't notice it or just don't get bothered by it. It bothered me so much I couldn't deal with it even though I'd say it's the best sound bar I have ever listend to. Finally I ordered the JBL and I now have a great sound bar. The sound is close to Klipsch, not quite as good but it has lows (more than any other sound bar I have heard) mids and high, all well defined and clear. Best of all, no hissing/static noise.

    I was very impressed with the setup. Not only with the TV but with my phone. Extremely easy to use. Has great USB ports and quality ports. I mean for a sound bar. I would not recommend plugging a 4K device into the back ports. If your TV is limited with 4K USB ports I recommend using an optic cable for this sound bar. The sound bar itself is mid level at best. However, where this unit really goes to work is with the sub woofer. The two combine for some amazing sound. The bass of even the smallest things like footsteps in a movie. All the way to explosions make this pair a great buy.

    When most people buy an entry level or mid level soundbar and sub combo the first thing they usually notice after hook up is the lack of good quality bass. Fear not, the JBL 3.1 is the cure for what ails you. The voice quality from the highs is a game changer if you've been listening to your TV's built in speakers. The 10" sub is excellent in every way. Room shakin' bass if you so desire with zero distortion or if that's too much for you it is fully adjustable so you can turn the bass down (wimp). All in all if your looking for a good soundbar set up then go buy one of the other guy's entry level..but if your looking for great sound with awesome bass then this JBL 3.1 is what you want.

    That being said, as someone who knows speakers, it could be much better. The transition from the tiny speakers in the sound bar to the subwoofer leaves a big gap in the low mids. If you dial down the subwoofer to just add a bit of warmth to the bottom end it’s tolerable. On the other hand, if you want to shake the room with low end rumble for an action movie, crank it up! It won’t be sonically accurate to the film score but that’s true for most consumer sound systems. But if you’re reading this review you probably aren’t going to be disappointed. Very nice build quality and easy to interface with your existing system.

    If you want the best sound, buy speakers or in this case, soundbars from a company that makes speakers. I'm not saying that sound bars from TV manufacturers are bad, some are very good but it just stands to reason that the very best sound comes from speakers made by speaker companies. JBL has been around a long time. They know how to make speakers!!!!!!!

    I was torn between this and the $400 Klipsch unit. I wanted to love the more expensive model with the fine wood accents and high end name, but I couldn’t get past the reviews. I spent 30 minutes deciphering the difference in sound between the two in-store, and ended up going with this unit. I’m glad I did. The sound is absolutely incredible. Clean and clear highs and mids, subtle lows that can absolutely shake your house, seamless bluetooth connectivity. Don’t waste your time with other models, trust the reviews.

    I bought the JBL 3.1 soundbar because: I wanted a wider range of sound options for my new LG TV It was on sale the height and width of the unit previously posted positive reviews about this unit the ability to act as a 4K pass through. The setup was easy but it sure would be nice if JBL provided a better set of directions for the unit. I am able to control the core functions of the unit with my Xfinity remote. I have no complaints about the sound quality coming from the soundbar.

    The sound this 3.1 sound bar puts out is nothing short of beautiful. It’s clear and crisp. The subwoofer bumps impressively. My only complaint is with ARC there is a very short lag after no sound. This mostly causes problems with video games, as I haven’t noticed it while watching movies or tv.

    I removed this sound bar from my television because it was just to shrill on the high end. Made my ears ring. Just not something I want to listen to on a consistent basis. Instead I put it in our exercise room where we crank music and higher volume for short periods. It's fun for maybe an hour. I put my Polk Sound bar back on my television set as it is a much more comfortable tone to listen to for several hours. Also, note that I purchased this same JBL sound bar a few weeks ago and the subwoofer died after about 20 minutes. Sales guy assures me that I must have just gotten a rare dud. Maybe. If I had to do it all over again I would have gotten a higher end Polk sound bar rather than this JBL.

    This sound bar and wireless powers sub where very easy to set up, had everything up and going within five minutes. The sound settings are just right for the room size I have as well as the sub hits just enough. I have only used it for movies, have not yet listened to any music with this system. We have it in a extra room that does not get used to often so does not see much use. However it is 100% better then TVs sound system.

    The sound out of this is well above of all my Vizio soundbars where they tend to sound tinny even the newest ones 7.1 sound really tinny compared to this beast. I looked at all available listened to all the only one that came at the same level was the high end Sony for $1200 .. Definitely the unsung hero of soundbar and even for my music I play from my phone..
