JBL Bar 3.1 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Blown Away ! I wanted a simple set up for my Game Room and the 70'' LED TV in it . For over a year now I looked at tons of sound bars since I always felt that would be the easiest choice , but I couldn't find anything that sounded great and actually had bass , since the game room is also 25 x 18 . Then after totally giving up I found this , I can't say thank you enough JBL for making a absolutely amazing sound bar system with balls , BIG HUGE BASS BALLS !!!! And the kids and highs are just as amazing sounding !!!!! Don't wait another single moment , if this is what your looking for , get off your butt , and run to the store and buy this system worth every single penny !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to replace an older receiver/speaker set in our small, oddly-shaped living room in order to reduce the number of wires everywhere. So far, very happy with with sound quality. Set up was easy. The room looks super clean now with just the sound bar and the sub tucked away in the corner. One thing I'd like to see are on-screen display of the volume level when using HDMI out to the TV. (I'm using the soundbar as an HDMI switch, so my PS4 and AppleTV go HDMI out to the inputs on the Bar, then Bar HDMI out to the TV). The remote is also a little light, weight-wise. On the plus side, the new AppleTV 4k remote controls the volume on the Bar. Thanks JBL for the super fast shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superiority soundbar in its class! The sales person at best buy convinced me to buy Definitive Technology - W Studio Micro 3.1 My first choice was Definitive and caught my attention since it offers deep deep black Friday discounts but It has a lot of connectivity and compatibility issues during setup. Not compatible with my cable receiver and 78" Samsung uhd remotes and I was having very hard time connecting with subwoofer because my router also wasn't on the compatible list. I finally gave up on Definitive and ended up returning it and got a JBL 3.1 sound bar and it was perfect! Awesome overall sound and powerful bass! most of all, the setup was very friendly with out the mess. I feel confident that it'll serve me well for the years to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible midrange The system was recommended by the dealer and has gotten many good reviews. Don't ask me why. Sound quality matter a lot to me and shortly put I am extremely disappointed. The bass is strong and deep, but that’s about it. The treble is too hard on the ears and the midrange is almost non-existent. In terms of natural sound balance/quality this is by far the most unbalanced sound system I’ve ever owned. The “EQ” is limited to a few pre-defined settings, such as sports, games etc. They don’t help at all. The virtual surround setting just makes it worse. Lately the soundbar has even stopped working properly. It has stopped playing audio though the ARC-channel. I’m hoping the customer support is better than the sound quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality The speaker has enough punch of bass that can shake the room at levels above 20 and at the same time, the voice clarity while watching English movies is a super specialty. I am in love with these speakers that delivers crisp voice clarity and excellent bass all that is controllable from remote. With surround mode on, the speaker gives room filling surrounding sound.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Where is the midrange sound?? I buy this bar and its a good stuff. Great design, great deep bass, great loud high sound. BUT!!!! And this is the biggest problem with this stuff: The midrange/mid-tones. JBL staff! Where is the midrange sound? I try many many music and if the music use this midrange Hz bass/sound, i hear only high sound and a minimum / very minimum bass or the low hz bass. I think the soundbar size is very low, and the tweeters is too small and not give mid-tones and the subwoofer bass is too deep so no mid-tones. Sry JBL, but this sound bar is not good for music. :( The virtual sound is terrible, its only a wider stereo. But the soundbar is good for movies. Transformers rulez!! :D

Is this soundbar compatible with any JBL wireless speakers?  I would like to get some rear speakers to create a true surround sound.

Asked by: Epp5
Unfortunately it is not. If you wish to get a true surround sound you can get our JBL Bar 5.1 with detachable wireless surround speakers instead.
