Wake up to eye-opening JBL sound

The JBL Horizon clock radio wakes you up with one of several original wake up sounds, one of five programmable radio presets, music from your smartphone or tablet played wirelessly via Bluetooth® or a traditional buzzer. The Horizon features two separate customizable alarms in a compact design that fits easily on any nightstand or kitchen shelf. With a built-in light sensor that automatically adjusts display brightness to outside environment, a large snooze button and a built-in battery system that wakes you up even during a power outage, the JBL Horizon is both easy to use and necessary to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alarm clock with a professional Speaker I was challenged to find a good quality Bluetooth speaker that had all the alarm clock features I required. This device has them all from duel alarms to weekday setting options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features & Sound. Sketchy Instruction What I love: I can - Wake up to music of my choosing at any sound level by streaming it over bluetooth from my iPhone. - Have some added light help me awake gently and slowly. - Listen to FM radio. NPR sounds more relaxing and sonorous on this than on an expensive stereo. - Take a timed nap. - See the day of week as well as the date, very orienting. - Recharge my iPhone daily by just plugging it in when I go to bed. I love the rubber feet and the whole rubber feel thing going on. Alarm clocks tend to jump off night stands. This one will stay there much more steadfastly. I found the setup to be relatively intuitive, though it does absolutely require some time to communicate to the clock how you want it to behave. The alarm clock I bought in 1989 for about $20 still works great and sounds great for a clock radio at that price point. I've purchased two alarm clocks since then that do not measure up. The display on the $49 cube did not dim, for example. The Horizon is a keeper. And that's high praise. This said, it's not without its faults. I agree with other reviewers that the instructions have a very sketchy feel to them. Many older customers will find it impossible to read the Quick Start manual. And interpreting the instructions feels like playing a kind of puzzle game. I only just got through them. Downloading the instructions does not help on either score. Very bad. Also, the buttons would be much better if they were larger and had more tactile feedback to help in identifying them early in the morning. That said, the imperative of manipulating the right the clock radio button when one is mostly asleep in the morning should be virtually eliminated thanks to the soft, gentle series of noises that is now the waking stimulus instead of obnoxious loud beeping of a traditional alarm clock. Finally, the fact that it has no radio controlled time is a little weird. Here in AZ, that's actually going to make my life a little easier - assuming the clock does keep time well - since I won't have to keep telling it that we don't observe daylight saving time. As to its durability, I'm delighted to hear that it's a matter taken seriously by JBL. There is a weighty quality to this clock suggestive of a solid build. Ask me again in 2047.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy To Read I stayed in the Hyatt Hotel in New York City a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed when I saw the radio on the night stand and could see the time and date from from my sitting room, plus the sound was outstanding when we were relaxing.

I can't read the LED display unless I flash my cellphone light directly at the light sensor. Can it really be true that I can't manually adjust this?

Asked by: JacobHartvig
Same problem with my Horizon. Led's are barely visible in most lighting conditions and I don't find a way to adjust it manually.

Hi, I wake up every morning with radio alarm, but I cannot set it at a certain volume. The radio starts at a low volume and a few seconds after gets louder and louder. I can´t stand it and I have to turn it off. It´s not a gently wake up at all.

Asked by: Matias
Really bad decision by designers. I listen to it mostly on wakeup. Unfortunately I have to run to switch it off. The sound becomes so strong quickly.

Will you have a fix allowing to control the FM radio volume in alarm mode? I have SW version 26 and the Bluetooth alternative is not suitable for me. I like the device quality, but this issue makes it so unusable I'm thinking of returning it. Thank you.

Asked by: ChrisD
Me too. I don't like being blown out of my bed with sound, i just like to listen to the radio. So after the radio alarm starts, i need to turn alarm off, then lights on and radio back on. It is quite a hussle to find the right button if you are not awake and its dark. I have software version 026.

Hi In the morning with the alarm set to wake you up on the radio setting, the volume gets way to loud too quickly! I checked my software version and it is version 22. Is there a way to update this software?  Many thanks 

Asked by: Greg willow
This has been addressed and corrected with production software version 025. Unfortunately, there is no way to control the volume of the wake-up alarm sound on the HORIZON. The update for the HORIZON cannot be done over-the-air download. I noticed that you are in South Africa. If this doesn't help, please contact the store where you purchased it and they will be able to help, or at least guide you to the people that can.

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.

Hi JBL, I just bought my JBL horizon. I wish to set my favorite FM but it always goes back to first channel. How do I set my favorite FM radio? Thank you 

Asked by: July
To set your favorite FM radio on the HORIZON, press and hold the FM radio button for 2 seconds until the radio station indicator will light up. Tune the radio to the station you want, and then press the middle button to store the station. To set presets, same procedure as before but the preset (P1-P5) should light up this time. If the issue persists, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/support-product.html and our Customer Service team will be glad to assist you.

Hallo! I have mini ipad 3. Is it true that fast charger (in jbl horizon) is only for iphone, not ipad? I mean, i understood that the charger will not charge my ipad fast , is it true? Thanks, sasa.

Asked by: Sarit
Hi Sasa, Actually you can charge everything, the point is that the USBs output 5v, 1A, usually this is enough for Mobile phones, but iPad might use more power input.

Is this clock auto set capable via the atomic clock?

Asked by: Wahoogolfer
No. The HORIZON does not have auto set features and time needs to be manually set-up.
