JBL Bar 2.1 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny. Beautifully clear sound, first JBL product I’ve bought and I’m astounded by its performance, deepest bass I’ve experienced from a household subwoofer (as it would be unfair to compare to subs from live concerts ect.) aswell as crispness on high notes with no distortion what so ever. Had the product nearly two months now (I think) and never ran into a single problem, minor hiccups at the start with trouble pairing subwoofer to soundbar when it was fresh out the box. Overall a brilliant product, I rate it very highly and am exited for when I eventually transition to something slightly more powerful such as the Bar 3.1 or the 5.1 if I happen to feel the need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good Packs plenty of power for our living room with high ceilings. Am sure the 3.1 and up are super good though don't think my wife would like those due to how loud it could get. This one can fill the room with sound easily, base is very good, highs very good, and of course being JBL in itself let's you know the good quality to expect. Could have better instructions with it though just came to JBL site and downloaded then. Setup very easy, and up and going in under 5 minutes. First connect to the tv takes several seconds before heard sound, though just on initial setup. Very happy with it and when comes to audio it is hard to beat JBL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing sound Great clarity and bass. My kids use it for Just Dance and other Ps4 games as well as TV and movies. Uses HDMI or optical to connect to TV. I love the readout on the bar itself. I keep having audio sync issues though. The sound is behind the mouth moving. I must enable and disable my TV sound sync to fix it. It's either a software issue or the bar is fighting with my LG 4K TV sync since both the bar and the TV have sync options. Bottom line though is that it sounds really really good and hearing surround from a bar under the TV is really a trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality Product Offers great sound for an affordable cost. Very impressed with the bass quality and high volume clarity for being the lowest model that JBL carries. Wall mounting was extremely quick and easy. It has all the ports and functions you would need for a soundbar to have. Obviously this system doesn’t compare to higher end home theaters, but this is the best 2.1 soundbar system compared to other brand names.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and features Great sound for the size and the price of this soundbar. I chose it over others because it has HDMI in and out which I need for my AppleTV. A slight problem which I have read other soundbars have as well, is that when audio is sent from Apple TV to soundbar, there is a second of silence before the soundbar detects the audio signal. After 1 second the display shows PCM and audio suddenly tuns on, in the middle of whatever sound is currently playing. This results in a jarring audio experience any time you pause for a second and then move the apple TV cursor around to select apps. It would be great if you could set the JBL soundbar to remain in PCM mode at all times intsead of constantly reverting to its un-named default sound transfer codec. I still give it 5 stars because this is a minor enough annoyance and everything else is as good as I could ever ask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful sound I recently bought this for music and video games, anyone who says that this is underpowered doesn’t know what they’re talking about, the 200 watt subwoofer can be felt by my feet on the 2nd floor,(bar is on 1st floor) when it is on half volume. Full volume starts shaking things and the house rattles. The bass is punchy and the mids are really there in video games or tv. I would definetly recommend for a small room or even a medium size room like mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound I just received mine yesterday, directions on linking the subwoofer were not correct, had to go to youtube for instuctions, but after that I was very pleased the product, the remote works with my tv and cable remotes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super product Ik heb nu ongeveer 3 weken dit prachtige apparaat in bezit en ik ben er super tevreden over. Het installeren ging vrij soepel, alleen het duurde heel even voordat de basbox gekoppeld was met het apparaat. Het geluid is echt super en wat een volume komt hieruit! Mijn buurman is er in iedergeval niet blij mee! Het geluid is heel zuiver en vooral bij films hoor je de kwaliteit van dit product! Het enige puntje waar ik last van heb is als je hem verbind met je iPhone en het volume op je iPhone aanpast, dan gaat het volume verre van subtiel omhoog. Het is dan ineens te hard of te zacht! Verder vind ik het product een goede prijs kwaliteitsverhouding hebben!

How do I register my soundbar online? Where is the best place to put the sub-woofer?

Asked by: Markbark
No need to register the soundbar online. All you just need to keep is the receipt showing your order infor and we can cover it under warranty if you run into any issues. The best place to put the subwoofer would be close to the soundbar as possible .

My iPhone X’s Max was paired fine.  Few days later I could not get them to connect. So forgot device on phone and now cannot get them to pair. iPhone sees the JBL2.1 when searching, but when I select it “Pairing Unsuccessful”

Asked by: TonyPGH
Please perform a reset on the soundbar, In any source mode, press and hold VOLUME -, VOLUME+ and SOURCE button on soundbar top panel until text display shows RESET. When the factory settings restore is complete, the product automatically switches off and restarts. Try connecting your smart phone to the soundbar again.

Are you able to connect this with a Jbl speaker, such as the pulse 3 in party mode, so they can all play together when streaming music via phone?

Asked by: Jaked
Nope, The Connect + feature is only available to some of our Portable speakers and not applicable through our newer soundbars.

ik krijg gene geluid uit.me tv als ik hem op hdmi heb ald ik het via aux doet vind ik het euid echt slecht wat eruit komt bij kijken van films hoe op te lossen of af te stellen

Asked by: brian21
Wanneer je hem via een HDMI verbind, moet je de source optie ARC gebruiken ipv HDMI. Althans, bij mij werkt dat op die manier.
