JBL Bar 2.1


The JBL Bar 2.1 soundbar comes with a wireless sub, adjustable listening modes, and a price that feels low for the system's overall quality.

Decent performance for the price Having used the JBL Bar 2.1 for a few weeks now, I am reasonably pleased with it. I currently have a 5.1 system and a more expensive soundbar, so I don't have much comparison in this price range. The JBL bar is well...

Great Value for Money


Great value for money especially seen as it comes with the subwoofer included. Works really well with other speakers in the JBL range and the app is really useful too. The only negative I would say is the one I received came with an EU plug so I had to...
