Arena 6IW is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was amazing and I would use again. Best purchase I have made
Date published: 2017-05-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I 've had to replace these every two weeks. I love these , they are freakin AMAZING ! The JBL components produce a sound quality you can't beat, yet aren't loud enough to drown out traffic, which is needed when either running or biking. The pair I currently have is working but the issues are beginning to happen. It starts with random feedback noise from the left speaker when no music is playing or on calls, then it will begin to state that the heart rate can't be found OR has been Found, then will continue to repeat that over & over, I shut it off, then turn them back on & they will work for a couple of days before they finally either stop working all together or continue repeating the afore mentioned phrases as soon as I turn them on. I've gotten so use to running with them I don't want to be without. Heck i don't even listen to music on them while working out,I use them for the data that syncs up beautifully with the apps. I am at the point where I may have another few days with the pair i 'm using right now, and wish I could end up with a pair that DOESN'T have to be replaced. UA these are wonderful concepts put in to useful reality, just have to polish & tweek up a little bit more!! I would be giving it 5 stars or more but it becomes a little bit frustrating having to regularly replace them ... I want this system to keep working more then a couple of weeks at a time! I love all things UA, but would do so more so If they kept functioning correctly!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product These were just what I was looking for. I work out 4 times a week 1/2 resistance 1/2 cardio. These earbuds stay in better than any of my other wireless earbuds. The advantage of monitoring my heart rate and therefore getting a good estimate on calories burned when sinced to UA Record is worth the price! I've been using them for 3 weeks now and the only quibble I have is that with the volume all the way up the heart rate updates are loud while my music is noticeably softer. I was hesitant to purchase these for the price but now that I have them I'm sorry I waited. I've seen a few reviews where people are having issues with the heart rate monitoring but from my limited experience with the right plug fitting it shouldn't be an issue.

Would these speakers work for rear surround speakers in a 5.1 system?

Asked by: Grover33
Yes, these speakers would work well as rear surround speakers assuming that your amplifier/receiver can handle it, since the impedance of this speaker is 8 ohms and the recommended amplifier power is 80W.

If I use the 55IW for the center speaker it will need to be mounted vertically, i.e., with one woofer above the other. How will this affect sound? Would it be better to use the 6IW for center instead? (L and R speakers will be 6IW.)

Asked by: Arnie
The JBL Arena 55IW speaker, when being used as a center channel, must be mounted horizontally. If you must do a vertical mount, you are better off using a single JBL Arena 6IW speaker.
