JBL Boost TV

 

We all know that soundbars are a great way of upgrading TV sound quality without adding clutter to your living room. But for some people, even a regular-sized soundbar (and the subwoofer that inevitably comes with it) takes up too much space,...

JBL Boost TV review

 

Decent budget-priced soundbar is a good option for those tight on space

Compact build ; Engaging dynamics ; Tonally balanced ; Decent detail ; Can pair with another speaker

Rivals have more bass ; Not very expansive

A talented soundbar-cum-speaker for anyone short on space and budget

JBL Boost TV review

 

As TV screens have gotten thinner, their speakers have shrunken accordingly. That often makes for audio that can sound less robust than some of the old tube TVs of yore. But there is something you can do about it. While home theater in a box systems...

The JBL Boost TV is simple to set up and gives you better sound than almost any television. The unit is compact and includes the most-used connections. The speaker sounds better than many portable Bluetooth speakers at the same price.

The Boost can sound shouty at high volume or with bright music. There's little stereo separation. You can buy a full sound bar and subwoofer system with streaming features for the same money.

The JBL Boost TV offers a simple, effective upgrade to your existing television sound with the option of Bluetooth streaming thrown in.

JBL Boost TV review: Better TV sound in a small package

 

Want better sound on your TV? This a really easy option. Plus you get Bluetooth streaming thrown in.

JBL Boost TV

 

The JBL Boost TV soundbar is a compact and affordable way to add plenty of audio power to your television, but don't expect musical magic.

Affordable. Generates a large sound field for its size. Makes movies and shows sound epic and exciting.

Better for movies and television than music. Can sound shrill at higher volumes. Not much deep bass.

Music Performance and Conclusions While the TV Boost handles movies and games very well, it lacks the subtlety and flexibility needed to really do justice to music. On the fast, crowded mix of Iron Maiden's "Powerslave," Bruce Dickinson's vocals fade...

The JBL Boost TV Review: A Small Speaker With A Big Sound

 

Sound bars are kind of an odd concept if you ask me. Sound bars pack a little more punch than the standard TV speakers but may not have the punch most 5.1 and above sound systems have. At least, that used to be the case. I don't know when it changed,...

Small with a solid design, great sound, easy to set up and use

JBL Connect software is a pain to connect

Small, sleek and packs a wallop when it comes to sound.Those in the market for a sound bar but aren't wanting a 5.1 system should look no further.

JBL Boost TV Review

 

The JBL Boost TV is aptly named — it really does provide a much needed boost to your flat panel TV. I absolutely love my TCL Roku TV — it's an incredible value and a great TV for the money, but its weakest aspect, like with most TVs, is its audio. It's...

Compact and attractive design, adds more powerful audio and surround sound to your TV, brings out clearer dialogue in TV and movies, doubles as a Bluetooth speaker you can connect to your phone, very affordable, has JBL Connect support for linking it...

Not a serious replacement for a cinematic home theater audio system

The JBL Boost TV is no replacement for a serious home theater speaker system with a subwoofer, but it is an excellent solution for small apartments, bedrooms and cramped spaces. The JBL Boost TV retails for $189.95 and is available in white or black.
