    What you need, a cool purchase, I advise you.

    Too weak for a TV. In terms of price / quality ratio, the cost of such a device is overpriced. I decided for myself that no soundbar would be suitable for home acoustics, at least 5.1. This unit was bought as computer acoustics, connected via bluetooth, in general, 4+.

    • 1. Wireless Sub; 2. The width of the sound bar, gives volume to the sound; 3. "Swings" adequately despite the compact size; 4. Availability of wall mount
    • 1. Nasty and loud sound signal when connected via bluetooth (begins to annoy); 2. Lack of bass adjustment (not enough for me, I would add more); 3. A short HDMI cable, which could not be configured, apparently defective; 4. No auto turn on by bluetooth

    A valuable purchase, some advantages!

    I considered it as an option 2.1 Deep bass, it was 5000 more expensive, I decided to stop all the same at sb160, since 300 watts is a lot for a small hall! Before that, there was a jbl sb350 that was still a beast! Neighbors knocked on the door always complained)) in short something like this! If you do not have a large hall or room, then I recommend it! And if more than 20 sq. then look at model 2.1 Deep bass)

    • Jbl sb160 soundbar is not even bad! Good sound quality, not bad bass! I took for 9 990 for this money excellent!
    • No

    I'm impressed! Exactly the product deserves your attention.

    Tell me, please, knowledgeable guys, if you hang it on the wall, then the legs included in the kit can be attached to the case with screws from the back cover?

    • Appearance. Easy to connect, connect to TV and to each other (I immediately connected it via an optical fiber cable (I had it immediately from the previous jbl boost tv system). Sound quality when watching a movie, sound volume.
    • The length of the power cords confuses me. It most likely will not be enough when I connect everything permanently.

    Beyond praise! The product definitely deserves your attention.

    The sound is a bomb compared to competitors for the money. I reviewed the car reviews and reviews, in all budgets up to 15 tons this model appeared and took 1-3 place in terms of sound. I took it and have no regrets. Movies, music became regular after a colossal change in sound. In no case do not take without a sub. Money down the drain. And with it a very rich sound and super bass. Panel hung directly to the TV set on a special. soundbar bracket. And the sub is in the corner by the sofa

    • Price, sound quality, wireless subwoofer
    • For the price of 10K everything is not up to par

    Revainrating 3 out of 5

    Not the best quality, but generally not bad.

    At a distance of 4 meters from the sound buffer from the speaker - the sound buffer constantly loses contact with the speaker for a few seconds (on this line it costs nothing - only air) of course it cannot be compared with the old Marshal Major 3 headphones with which you walk within a radius of 10-12 meters and forget that the sound source is somewhere far away. Thus, he constantly stutters and has microfreezes. I didn’t expect such crap from jbl (although I waited - remember how this company

    • Certainly better than the flat sound of all telecoms now.
    • If you turn off the sound buffer, the difference with a flat TV is almost invisible.

    A great option for this money, one of the best offers.

    With Samsung 7th series it works fine, it connects via hdmi without any problems. I paid half with bonuses in amazon, for 5900 I consider it quite a good purchase.

    • Appearance, turning on and off with the TV (only via hdmi), bluetooth turns off due to inactivity (this is of course a minus), I did not try the optics.
    • If bluetooth is busy with a TV, and you want to listen to music from your phone, you are tormented by switching from the phone, then back, I remember it as a nightmare. The lack of bass adjustment, it's a bit too much, I decided by making a foam plug, from the same packaging kit, into the phase inverter from the back. You don’t feel the volume, the sound is around or something)) it’s just loud and that’s it, maybe with a 2.1 system it should be so.

    A good and high-quality product, but there are disadvantages.

    The price of 11500 seems a bit overpriced, given the listed disadvantages, if someone bought cheaper than 10 thousand. - this price is more justified. But in fact there are no analogues even at such a price in this form factor. Although there are competitors in the form of columns 2.0 or 2.1.

    • The sound is pleasant, of course better than the TV. The volume and bass are sufficient for an apartment. Compact dimensions - the bar fits between the legs of a 50" TV.
    • No volume display, no equalizer settings - there are three fixed settings, no analog audio input aux, IR control, and we have already begun to get used to the bluetooth remotes.

    I really like the product, it fully meets my expectations.

    When I pulled the sub out of the box, looking at its size, I didn’t even suspect that the bass would be so powerful and deep, then he was very pleased. He also listened to music. instruments, and vocals, and music with basses, everywhere it sounds very pleasant and detailed (not hi end of course, just a clear good sound). It’s even redundant for a small room, I turned it on a couple of times and quickly turned it down, it’s very loud and with a powerful bass, but I still live in an apartment…

    • Sound, bass, wall mount included, wireless subwoofer
    • This is not even something that would be cons . Rather nit-picking. Well, as it is It turns itself off when idle, at least by bt, at least by hdmi. A little distracted from YouTube, and turn it on again. Although it was for everyone I read about, not only for this model and not only for jbl A couple of times the sub "fell off" for a few seconds. There is no bass control, it is sometimes redundant. No volume indication The front of the subwoofer and speakers of different colors. USB port for software ates only Included only a thin hdmi, no optics. Hdmi I changed to normal, I don’t know if it makes sense . It’s just that the house is full of them

    The item was good, I'll recommend it to my friends.

    All in all, somewhat pleasantly surprised. The difference with TV sound is about the same as the difference between a wall radio and a medium power radio. But the difference in sound quality between a soundbar and good outdoor acoustics is about the same, only in the minus))). For listening to music, it is probably only suitable for connoisseurs of "boom-bzdyn", and "boom" clearly outweighs here. There are practically no normal averages, the sub hums, buzzes, there is practically no normal…

    • Ease of connection and use. Sound (for the price). I was very pleased with the ease of use through eARC - there is no need for a second remote control, the bar is controlled by the TV remote control. And turns on and off with the TV.
    • Sound. On the TV screen, when adjusting the sound of a bar connected via eARC, there is no volume level indicator, only the bar itself blinks with a light when the buttons are pressed)).

    I took it on my tongue to try for my samasung 43 ue7470. Without snot and goo, I will turn to the facts, my friends. The subwoofer on the subwoofer is well adjusted. Even at low volume, it does not stall, but continues to sound like this neatly. And pretty soft. There are almost no sound settings, only 3 modes, the sub is not separately regulated. Bluetooth only up to 1.5m further cough corona and loss of consciousness. The sub can be carried up to 2m from the bar. The sound spectrum is audible

    Just a terrible product, very upset.

    I purchased this soundbar for my TV, but unfortunately, I have had a string of bad luck with it. First, the board stopped working, and I had to take it in to have it repaired. Then, my TV refused to recognize it when connected via HDMI, so I had to connect it using Toslink. I examined the sound after the repair (which is a shame because I got it from the JBL store), and everything is perfect, which satisfies the fundamental requirement. Given the price of this equipment (if we collect…

    • The cost and the aural quality (especially bass)
    • A highly unreliable thing in terms of its construction (further specifics may be found in the accompanying comment), indication of connection, and sound level, it died two months after being repaired.

    Revainrating 4 out of 5

    The product is good, there are only a few minor flaws.

    The optical cable connection turned out to be good, so I decided to leave the purchase as it is. But with this connection, the volume level is adjusted both on the TV and on the soundbar, somehow strange. As for HDMI, I don’t know if it’s a factory defect or a constructive one. In general, it is clear that this is the most budget option.

    • I liked basically the price of the promotion on the market a little less than 10 thousand + cashback bonuses 1000, in general, it was the price that bribed. Sound for movies in our room was good.
    • In general, I already wanted to return it, but it’s very difficult to issue a return on the market, since you need to send it through the 2022 post office, then wait until the package arrives until they consider it . Not the most interesting New Year’s adventure. The reason for disappointment was the connection via HDMI cable - some extraneous sound began to appear in the left speaker, as if when turning it on and off. There were no extraneous noises via bluetooth, but for some reason our android tv periodically showed a volume bar while navigating through applications, a bar just popped up and showed the volume level. I also didn’t like it very much, but this was not observed while watching movies.

    Excellent quality, absolutely not expected for such a price.

    First, I put the subwoofer next to the soundbar and the TV set on the TV wall. And for a week I doubted "the sound seems to have become better, but somehow it's not worth it." I looked in the instructions, it is written that the subwoofer should be placed no closer than a meter to the soundbar. And then the subwoofer's journey to all corners of the room began . And when I found that very corner, how crazy I was from how the sensation of sound immediately changed . just a buzz!

    • + Great sound for the layman. + Wireless subwoofer (you can choose the right place - see comments). + Everything is easily connected (to the TV via HDMI ARC, to the phone via bluetooth). Wire included. + looks stylish. although they all seem to be the same now plus or minus :)
    • - The biggest drawback - when connected via HDMI ARC to an LG TV, when the volume is changed, the scale is not shown. It's damned uncomfortable and inconvenient. After all, you usually turn on the movie, press the volume down, look at the volume level, adjust it and watch the movie . and then it turns out until the sounds start, you set the desired volume . - Turns off after 10 minutes without sound. I wish it was longer, at least 30 minutes. And so I put the music on the phone on pause, got distracted, after 10 minutes you have to turn on the soundbar again. Or put the film on pause, returned. You press play, and the sound is already through the speakers. I would like not to think about these on / off at all. - Little equalizer. There are three modes - Movie, Music, News. A TV audio modes do not work through HDMI ARC, only for TV Speakers. - During the month of use, 2 times from the subwoofer there were strange sounds when the TV was turned off . in the middle of the night . I had to get up and unplug it from the outlet.

    Only disadvantages and no pluses, do not buy.

    Does anyone know how you can adjust the subwoofer yourself, if such an elementary possibility is not provided initially?! It's simply impossible to listen to music, instead of bass, everything just buzzes wildly . every time I expect a pleasant sound, but instead, one irritation and a desire to break this subwoofer. it saves a little, for example, when turning on music from the phone, the equalizer function on the phone - you can reduce the level of low frequencies. but in general it is of…

    • good sound in movie mode
    • crazy subwoofer that can't be adjusted. absolutely unacceptable and unnatural bass for listening to music. the soundbar itself constantly turns on when you turn on the TV or change the input, which is wildly infuriating.

    A high-quality product, the price corresponds to the quality.

    This is the first soundbar and there is nothing to compare with. I always thought it was a waste of money and didn't think such a compact speaker could sound good. Absolutely spontaneous purchase, I decided to replace the vile TV sound with something more interesting. Chose something budget and settled on this option. I bought for 10+ thousand. For the money it's perfect! Do not expect super sound from him. Watching movies has become much more enjoyable. Sometimes I listen to music from my…

    • Design Control Takes up little space Value for money
    • The glossy surface is a dust collector + scratches quickly.

    Just super, the product is made wonderfully, very satisfied.

    We chose between mini music centers, used active acoustics with ebay and a soundbar. There is one laudatory review on the network for this model and few reviews on the Market, but we decided to take a chance and bought two pieces at once. They brought it, plugged it into the socket, plugged in the cables (one TV for optics, the other for HDMI) and it all worked. No dumps, breaks in communication, and other things were not noticed. By hdmi, the volume is controlled from the TV remote control, by

    • Sound quality, functionality, appearance, minimum number of wires.
    • Weak mids, no bass control, no volume indication, no optical cable included, which costs 150. Ashamed.

    A really necessary purchase, Im glad I found this product.

    Take without hesitation at a price tag of 10-11 thousand. For an apartment, I see no reason to take systems over 220 W (as in this one), the neighbors will be "delighted"))) With its pros. Powerful and clear sound, JBL, build quality, you can’t find better for this money, I took it for a promotion for 11.5 thousand. For movies and music, that’s it, the room is 16 m2, but I think the neighbors can hear 2 floors up and down if you unscrew the sound to the middle. Connected to the computer via…
