Best sound bar I’ve owned
I’ve owned and used the JBL 2.1 sound bar for almost 3 months now and use it daily. I have various sound bars and home theater systems on all 5 of my tv’s. The JBL 2.1 is now on my main tv. Just plugged it in and it worked no complicated setup. Sound is great with adjustable bass levels and highs and mids that deliver clear dialogue. Nice and loud when you want it to be for those action movies. But can also be used for daily tv watching at normal levels. I also like that it turns on and off with the tv and there is no annoying indicator light that other bars have on all the time.

First things first. BASS . That warm deep feeling i have been searching for quite some time now, my series and movies have a whole new meaning!! I have my tv bolted in the wall and got the bar underneath it, looks super slick with no wires, the bass box next to the couch!! Works just perfect for streaming music too. I have a vacation home and i actually use it like a portable speaker too, grab it and take it simple. Love this set!!!

Huge Sound - Small Footprint - Amazing Value!
This speaker system is impressive! JBL seems to have perfected the science of big sound from small speakers in the past decade and this system is no exception. The packaging is excellent as usual and it arrived in perfect condition a lot faster than I thought. Super easy to set up. It’s like “plugging in a toaster” easy! Within a couple minutes of arriving I had these babies fired up and booming. TV shows immediately took on new dynamics and presence, but the real test was just listening to my favorite music. Every measure including those with deeper bass were exceptionally vivid and played with ease even at higher volumes. I love how nicely this speaker system looks in this set up and love how the sources and volume is displayed through the grill. Very cool. I’ve listened to other speakers like these at Best Buy in much higher price ranges and for the money these need to be on the top of your list. I don’t anticipate any trouble with these speakers. I’ve used them every day for the last week and they’ve been flawless. My past purchases from JBL have always been outstanding but I did experience a problem with a small Bluetooth speaker a few years ago. Customer service was “Nordstrom’s” good so buy with confidence. My only complaint is That the instruction manuals could use a little more detailed information and should be printed large enough for most people to be able to read. That frustration slowly melted away as the music began to play.

Awesome sound works seemlessly
I have been looking for a sound bar and wireless subwoofer to add on to our gaming room entertainment system for some time. I figured this would be a good option that was relatively simple and would meet that need. However, as I have come to find with JBL, all of their products continuously exceed my expectations. It packs a far better sound than I could have imagined considering its price range. Although it is not the smallest sound bar on the market, it has a really nice clean look that blends well under any TV. It also came with wall mounting brackets should I decide to hang it up down the road.

The wireless subwoofer throws really rich deep bass throughout our living room but it does not take up a lot of space. I tried placing the subwoofer in the furthest points in the room and it did not have any issues connecting. The best thing about this system aside from its impressive sound is that it just works without any problems. Other sound bars I have had in the past would intermittently lose connection with the wireless sub-woofer and this one works every time. The wireless Bluetooth works great too.

I was also surprised how clear the voice is. Other systems I had in the past required adjusting the voice volume and bass levels continuously while watching a TV show or movie. This one really has a nice balance at all times and I can focus more on relaxing versus adjusting volume levels. This was a huge pain for me in the past!

If you want a simple sound bar and wireless subwoofer that delivers great sound at a lower cost, this one is for you! It is simple to setup, easy to navigate the controls, throws great sound, and just works without any problems.

I made the switch to JBL a few years ago after having considerable trouble and continual disappointment with other big brand names. Of all the JBL products I have owned, I’ve had zero problems to date and I'm glad I made the switch! Of note, I did receive this as a free product to review. However, it was perfect timing as I was in the market for one anyway.

Huge boost over TV sound
I should start this review by stating that I have a personal bias against sound bars, even though I owned one prior to receiving the Bar 2.1 DB. I'm more of a 5.1 system, big-ish speaker lover. Getting that out of the way, I think this thing is really good for what the intended audience is. It looks unobtrusive, but very complimentary of my bedroom TV, where I tested it, with the dark gray finish. To my ears, it sounded really good, with very clear dialogue during most TV programs. Dialogue was again good with movies, and the compact sub actually seems to punch well above its weight class, while being very clean and tight. Now to the downside... If you want to listen to very much music from your system, this is probably not your best choice. While the bass module is actually capable of reproducing music pretty well, the bar is Really Bright when it comes to music from a variety of sources, and ear fatigue happens quickly, even dialing down the highs with eq. I noticed it early, so played it for several hours while i was away to make sure it was broken in before trying again, without much change. If you're a heavy music listener, and short on space, you're much better off with a pair of JBL's excellent bookshelf speakers of similar pricing. But as I stated earlier, if pulling dialogue from TV and movies is your primary need, along with some nice explosions and surprising bass response, then this sleek and unobtrusive setup might just be perfect.

Great features at a great price
This sound bar is priced quite reasonably. In it you get the sound bar and subwoofer. It was relatively straightforward to hook up to my tv. It produces a good quality sound that fills the room. My review is based off a short period of use, but so far no complaints.

Better than the theatre!
I really love this sound bar with the sub. The bluetooth connection for playing music on my phone is really nice. Wireless sub is nice because I can place it where its most convenient and it sounds awesome. It is well balanced with a good kick but not muddy or distorted. The bar sound is pretty solid. It might be a little lacking in the mid section. The whole system makes normal TV shows sound so much better.

(if your bluetooth source i.e. phone is paired to more than one thing at a time like a watch, It might decrease the sound quality
