Junk
I’ve owned the 9.1 for a year now. Not a bit worth the $1200 I paid for it. The sound is unbelievable but you’ll get true 9.1 surround for 30 min during a movie. Then the rear speakers go out. I’m about to load this thing up and dump it off on JBLs front door step. Don’t waste your money

Very poor functionality
I have purchased several different soundbars, ranging from $200 to $1200 after purchasing this JBL 9.1 speakers. The functionality of these speakers are terrible. Connected to WIFI with ethernet wires, the speaker decides to connect to my wifi connected devices 2/10 attempts. I have had to reset my speakers to factory settings at least 8 times now after owning these speakers for less than 6 months. Its bluetooth function also works whenever it wants to. My $200 Sony soundbar was of much higher quality than this.

amazing but wish I could add a second Sub
This soundbar is amazing, truly better surround and Atmos than my far more expensive sonos arc system with powered rear speakers. Bass is good but I just with the soundbar or sub had a pre amp out to add an additional subwoofer or if there was an options to pair more than one. that would make it a 5 star

Fantastic Soundbar
I bought this soundbar couple of weeks back. It is truly a fantastic soundbar. Subwoofer is quite good and listening to music is unbelievably great. One small disappointment is that there is a USB port but it cannot be used for listening music from USB sticks. Looks like it is meant for software updates etc., It would have been nice if you can use the USB port for listening to music.

Oof! It's doesn't charge while docked?!?!?
I bought this and returned it within 2 weeks. It does not charge the rear speakers while docked and "charging". If in use, the docked speakers use their batteries for power - regardless of position. Use within the workday guarantees lack of use after work.

Sucks to know that using the speakers to stream music means no movie time thereafter.

Whole situation is covered in weak sauce.

Great sound but lacks surround effect and atmos
I’ve been using it for almost 2 weeks now. The sound and bass is great and even the punch but can’t really feel any atmos effect and at even the surround speakers and effect are underwhelming.

Learned my Lesson
This has turned out to be a $1,000 eyesore. The only reason I keep it in my home is to remind me to never again purchase anything JBL. Around the 90 day mark of ownership the left detachable speaker decided it wasn’t going to work anymore. So I tried a firmware update thinking this would snap it out of it’s time off… unfortunately, I was wrong. But, luckily I don’t have to worry about the firmware updates any longer because the network adapter has called it quits also. So now I am stuck with a 3 ft long mistake, dragging along a great sounding subwoofer that works in about 30 second intervals.

Side speaker not connecting
Speaker worked great for a few month. then one of the side speaker stopped working. When i hit the power button the side speaker will connect and play for a few seconds then stop. Firmware is up to date. Disappointed seeing how much these speakers cost and they are already...not working correctly.

SUBWOOFER BOARD COMPLAINT AFTER 1 YEAR AND 5 MONTH
My JBL 901 soundbar subwoofer is getting disconnected every now and then and the service technician conveyed that it is a board complaint and the board cost alone will come to Rs. 7946/- + 18% GST. All my expectations of JBL are gone and I regret the purchase of this so called "premium product", necessitating me to spend another Rs.10,000/- for its repair just after 1-1/2 years of its purchase.

Don't Buy, I'm on my third one. 2 were retuned
This would be my third Bar 9.1 . First two returned to best buy after enableing the wifi and downloading the firmware, bricked both right side speakers. After contacting JBL didn't really address the issues other than telling me to not enable wifi so firmware would not update. Went to check batter levels on both right and left . after fully charging a few days ago, have not detaching speakers from main unit now left reads left 60% and right at 80%.. Why ? have not used these satellite speakers on battery since fully charging them both. I would not recommend this unit considering the price .should work much better than it does. there's better bar systems out there that work for cheaper money

A shopper on Jun 9, 2020

Do the rears charge when bar is in use? Also do tears soon as reconnected to bar? work with flat batteries
A shopper on Apr 21, 2020
  Thanks for your questions. The rear speakers will charge when bar is in use but they must be docked into the bar to charge.
Is there an app to control this soundbar and change settings?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2020
  Thanks for your question. There apps to connect to wifi and streaming music. At the present time we are unable to confirm if an app is available to provide the same control of soundbar settings as the IR remote to control.
Does this soundbar have any kind of room calibration?
A shopper on Apr 14, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The JBL Bar 9.1 has no room correction calibration feature.
You mention eARC under specifications, but I have not seen anywhere else confirm that this soundbar has eARC. Can you confirm that this has eARC? Likewise if it has HDMI 2.1.
Tim D on Apr 14, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The JBL Bar 9.1 does indeed have an HDMI/ARC connection which would be connected via HDMI cable to TV HDMI/ARC. JBL has not published a specification regarding HDMI version. Given that the Bar 9.1 was released as a new product in January, 2020 it is very likely that it is HDMI 2.1 or better. Were sorry we cannot provide you with an absolute answer at the present time.
Can the bar be used while the satellite speakers are charging?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2020
  Thanks for your question. The soundbar can be used while the surround speakers are docked to the bar for recharging.
Any definitive release date on this product yet?
