I have problems with dropouts in sound when streaming Bluetooth music from my smartphone or tablet.
Please note that if you have a large number of Apps open, this may block or overtax the processor in your music player. Try to close all or most active apps. This should solve the problem.
What wireless range can I expect from my Bluetooth speaker?
Reception of Bluetooth can be heavily influenced by surrounding environment. If your product offers stable streaming performance when phone and speaker are in the same room, with no large objects blocking the line of sight, then your product is performing as specified.
JBL Horizon is rated 2.7547169811320753 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best alarm clock i've ever had I use this alarm clock to wake up to music via blue-tooth on my smartphone, also use it to wake up to Stav, Abby & Osher on brisbanes hit 105 radio app on my smartphone and that's a real bonus for me because I love waking up with them and there my favorite morning crew. The 2 usb ports included are a good thing to have because I can charge my smartphone & iPod while i sleep. The sleep timer works well with music streamed via blue-tooth on my phone and as well as hit 105 and i like the fact that it pauses the audio once the sleep time has been reached. I also like how the alarm goes from a subtle low volume and increases slowly in the mornings, it saves me from getting up to an alarm that is too loud that it jolts me out of bed and that it can be so low that i mightn't be able to hear it. I also like the aux port built into the back of the clock as some of my devices don't have bluetooth. Overall i like this alarm clock and i will be using forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond a typical alarm clock! After owning this for a month, I had to order a second for my wife's side of the bed. Multiple alarm modes(BT Device, Buzz, Radio, 3 custom sound tones, mood light on/off and volume setting). Also, it has auto dimming, as to not be super bright next to my bed at night. It does brighten up when the lights are on or my window shades are open. The bonus feature is the 2 USB port high speed charging. Lastly, the sound is excellent with Bluetooth audio streaming! Just what I would expect from JBL. Crisp highs, and tight bass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique and I love the design! This is the best alarm clock that I have purchased. My wife is hearing impaired and this is the first alarm clock that we are happy with. The cost to buy a medical version of a clock for the hearing impaired will set you back a whole lot more than the cost of this one. It also has great sound for streaming audio via Bluetooth as well. We love it, Thank you JBL!!

How can i solve the volume issue ?? can i update the fimrware ?? it's a very annoying issue :(

Asked by: Angy118
This has been addressed and corrected with production software version 025. To check the software version of the HORIZON, press and hold the Bluetooth and the Volume PLUS buttons at the same time. I noticed you are in Italy. If the software displays a different version, please contact the store where you purchased it for a software update. ​

I use device as a wake-to-music alarm clock. Is there any wait to set it so that the radio goes off on its own after a given time? Otherwise I find it blaring away when I return home after a few days away.

Asked by: misterstew
If you don't turn off the alarm, Horizon's alarm sounds for 3 minutes, then it shuts off, or rather it goes into snooze, for 9 minutes. Then it sounds the alarm again for 3 minutes, followed by snooze for another 9 minutes. After this final snooze period, it starts playing, and keeps on playing until it is manually shut off.

When i unplug the horizon from the power chord it turns off automatically.

Asked by: all nicknames are used
I assume you're trying to switch it ON, while the HORIZON is plugged in. This doesn't have a rechargeable battery. If this is the case, please try to unplug the HORIZON and plug it into a different wall outlet. If you're still unable to switch the HORIZON on, it may have developed a fault. I noticed you are in Switzerland. Please submit a case at and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

How can I turn off the auto dim feature? dumbest idea ever. Display is perfectly bright when lights on. But when light is off l can't see time. What does someone who wears glasses supposed to do when trying to see the time middle of night? 

Asked by: Cityoflightsgirl
Unfortunately the lights cannot be adjusted by user. The digital front panel display has automatic light intensity adjustment, which follows the level of light in the room.

As shown above on the Quick Start Guide, press on the Set Time button located at the bottom of the HORIZON to set the date and time. The time can be set either 12 or 24 hour, by pressing the arrow left or right buttons on top of the HORIZON and the circle button to confirm.

I use FM for my wake up every morning, and have two questions: 1. How to turn off alarm to avoid snoozing again? 2. If I don't turn off the alarm, How many times will it snooze?

Asked by: Danny_999
The small alarm (1 or 2) button on the matt surface has to be pressed to shut it off completely. If you don't turn off the alarm, Horizon's alarm sounds for 3 minutes, then it shuts off, or rather it goes into snooze, for 9 minutes. Then it sounds the alarm again for 3 minutes, followed by snooze for another 9 minutes. After this final snooze period, it starts playing, and keeps on playing until it is manually shut off.

No, the HORIZON can only be connected through Bluetooth or wired connections to play music. The two USB ports on the HORIZON provides fast charging for up to two smart devices.
