I wont be buying again.
Sound quality is decent. Not what you would expect from JbL. One of the speakers blew within the first 2 weeks.

Worth Every Dollar
I bought this a while ago and it sounded great right out of the box. It is a great quality soundbar, I like that it has a screen so you can see what it is on and also the subwoofer is great quality as well, it sounds just right and it has three settings of low, mid and high. It is default at mid and sounds well balanced at mid but it is nice to set it at low when you want to fall asleep to music or set it to high if you want to pump up the bass to really thump. This soundbar doesn't have adjustments for bass or treble like the Samsung soundbars do but it honestly doesn't need that because jbl made this sound amazing already and I am finally happy and don't need to look at soundbars anymore, I am so glad that I purchased the jbl bar 2.1 deep bass, it is a truly amazing sounding soundbar and I never want to stop listening to my music through this wonderful system.

Sound stage not typical of JBL
I hate to say it, but this is the first JBL product that I am disappointed with. First of all this isn't something I wanted to write, I have few JBL products- JBL Horizen, Charge 4, Pulse 4, Partybox 100 and a SB450 soundbar (something I didn't want to replace, but had stopped working). All have a typical sounstage which is tweeked, a jbl dna. However this dosen't have that. What I find is it's more reliant on clarity and vocals. I don't think the reproduction is either accurate or natural. It dosen't have the punch I was hoping for and used to- sub only goes down to 40hz. It isn't that loud either. Sorry it's far from what I've grown used to from JBL or hoped for.

The solution is fairly simple, JBL should have given us more eq settings such as music, film etc. The surround effect also just sounds forced and not very good.

Overpriced, under-designed
I’m returning this product because it is poorly designed. Specifically, the buttons on the dark-colored remote are printed with dark-colored ink making them virtually unreadable. The bass control gives you only three options: low, medium, and high. I found “high” to be too much and “medium” to be too little. Why there isn’t more flexible bass control is beyond me. I found the sound to be a bit muddy and, given that there is no eq control save the ill-designed bass choices, there is no way to match the setup to your room. Stereo imaging is poor. If this were a $99 sound bar, I wouldn’t be leaving this negative review. It’s just not worth the money.

Garbage if you don’t own newer tv
Will not work with computer hooked up to Sanyo LCD tv. I use my pc as entertainment and my tv serves as the monitor. If your tv isn’t newer (mine is 7 years old) forget this thing. I was so angry I almost threw this in the dumpster.

Second one with same issue
Got bar little over a year ago, a month after having it the sound bar kept skipping sound showing PCM on the bar, called and got a replacement, not I've been having the same issue with the replacement, I'm not the only one with the issue all JBL soundbar s have the issue even the 3.1, I think the company should address the issue and finally fix it, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BRAND.

Terrible Soundbar - Avoid
This Soundbar initially sounded fantastic. After 5 months it started to crackle & buzz from TV source through HDMI. Issue reported to JBL along with videos of crackling & buzzing. 6 weeks on and lots of emails I am still waiting for this to be resolved. Not what I’d expect from JBL.

This site created an article/review on the best soundbars and this one was picked for best soundbar on a budget. It is at a great price and if it does everything the review says, it will be perfect for boosting the sound of the tv and clearing up voice sounds.
