Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overall soundbar Overall good soundbar. On itself, the soundbar is just plain. Sound is high toned and high pitched but when the bass module is turned on, it’s like a whole new system. PROS: Great sound, easy plug and play, convenient remote control or on bar controls, cinema quality sound, quick and easy bluetooth pairing. CONS: Short power cords (5 1/2 feet-approximately), only 1 hdmi cord included (considering there’s 2 ports hdmi in/hdmi out), no fiber optic cord included (available for purchase anywhere).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overpriced, under-designed I’m returning this product because it is poorly designed. Specifically, the buttons on the dark-colored remote are printed with dark-colored ink making them virtually unreadable. The bass control gives you only three options: low, medium, and high. I found “high” to be too much and “medium” to be too little. Why there isn’t more flexible bass control is beyond me. I found the sound to be a bit muddy and, given that there is no eq control save the ill-designed bass choices, there is no way to match the setup to your room. Stereo imaging is poor. If this were a $99 sound bar, I wouldn’t be leaving this negative review. It’s just not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CRISP SOUND with GOOD BASS! Bar 2.1 Deep Bass is a WONDERFUL PRODUCT! Packaging: JBL continues to excel on creating a good first impression with their packaging. Setup: The setup process is very easy and fast. Sound Quality: This products sound is really clear and crisp and with the sub the bass really adds some theater like sound. I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a good sounding sound bar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small package - BIG SOUND From my own experience, no matter how nice your TV is, the TV speakers are never good enough because they just cannot pack enough bass into a flat screen TV. This is why you need at least a soundbar and a sub. The JBL 2.1 soundbar offers a wireless subwoofer so you can place it anywhere in the room which gives you a clean setup without too many hanging cables. Setup was a breeze. Since the TV was already wall mounted, I've decided to mount the soundbar as well. The package comes with a wall-mounting kit. To mount the soundbar you'll need to drill 2 small holes that are 27.5 inches apart and use the included kit to complete the setup. The soundbar came with an HDMI cable but since my TV does not have an HDMI out I ended up using my own Optical cable. Plugged in the power cord and Optical cable and change the input to PCM to use the Optical connection, hit the pair button on the back of the sub and it was good to go. I particularly like the remote. It has some weight to it and just feels right in your hand. The JBL 2.1 soundbar gives you clean sound and deep bass you dont get from your TV speakers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Sound, good bass I like that the sound bar has hdmi and optical. I can crank the volume and the sound will not distort, unlike other soundbars I've had. I would like to see present equalizers or a way to set bass, mids, and highs. The Bluetooth is a great feature. I would have given the soundbar 5 stars but it lacked the adjustment capability. But the sound that comes from this product is 5 stars. I would recommend the JBL 2.1 deep bass sound bar for your home theater

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the theatre! I really love this sound bar with the sub. The bluetooth connection for playing music on my phone is really nice. Wireless sub is nice because I can place it where its most convenient and it sounds awesome. It is well balanced with a good kick but not muddy or distorted. The bar sound is pretty solid. It might be a little lacking in the mid section. The whole system makes normal TV shows sound so much better. (if your bluetooth source i.e. phone is paired to more than one thing at a time like a watch, It might decrease the sound quality)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good sound bar at this price point! We had the JBL SB250 in our bedroom before we got the Bar 2.1 Deep Bass. They are very similar in a lot of ways, but the Bar 2.1 Deep Bass has the edge in overall clarity. It’s slightly longer than the SB250 and the sub enclosure is a little larger. Pro’s: Display on the front (vol +/-, mode) More than 1 HDMI input Good overall sound & range Con’s: Lacking some midrange (normal for soundbars I’ve experienced) Sound bar size may be too large for some set ups Lacks Harman Sound & Surround (SB250 has both) Overall, it’s a great sound bar and fits well in its price range. I’d definitely recommend it as it has great sound, and like the SB250, actually sounds better at higher volumes (music/movies).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Bass is not a gimick! I hated the sound from just the TV speakers and really wanted better sound and bass. Getting a receiver and speakers was not an option as I just wanted something simple and clean for my living room. A sound bar fixed that issue and this thing sounds AMAZING! Setup was a breeze two plugs and a connection to the TV and it was setup and running. I did try using HDMI arc but did not have success and the picture was cutting out. I think this was more my TV's setting needing to be adjusted but not sure as I just went to using an optical cable instead. The sound bar is great in that once you turn on the TV it automatically turns on so need to separately power it on. The soundbar does have a display that is easy to read, nicer than others that only display dots and you have to guess what input or setting you are at. The sound produced by this sound bar is very robust and loud. I turned it almost to max and the sound was clear and not distorted at all. This sound bar will fill a very large room with sound (might even be to loud for smaller rooms). I tested the sound bar in three different settings TV, Movie, and Music. Watching TV voices sounded clear and easy to hear. Using for Movies is amazing and I really like that the surround sound doesn't sound gimmicky like other sound bars. If you mostly listen to music this sound bar is perfect and one of the best I have heard. You can really crank up the sound and have it come in clear with deep bass. Perfect for parties, or turn on some easy listening and have it fill the house but not be over powering. The Sub is downward firing which I like better than rear firing. This sub hits hard, clear, and no distortion with lots of bass. With Music and Movies on a louder volume the SUB will shake the house. The Deep Bass is not a gimmick, I was honestly blown away at how great it sounds and feels (like being at the theater). The SUB does have three settings on the remote low, medium, and high. I usually leave it on high (I like bass) but even the low setting still produces great sound without being to much. The box for the sub is larger than other 6.5 inch ones. This wasn't an issue for me but it does take up more space than other ones. Overall I'm very happy with this sound bar and felt it was worth every penny. It looks great and is super easy to use. This soundbar made my 4k tv even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes Yes Yes!! First things first. BASS . That warm deep feeling i have been searching for quite some time now, my series and movies have a whole new meaning!! I have my tv bolted in the wall and got the bar underneath it, looks super slick with no wires, the bass box next to the couch!! Works just perfect for streaming music too. I have a vacation home and i actually use it like a portable speaker too, grab it and take it simple. Love this set!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from JBL 2.1 JBLBAR21BLKAM In BESTBUY I got the JBL 2.1 around 2 years ago, those were my best two years because I had incredible sound at home, my friends loved to go to my house and listen my soundbar but unexpectedly now I have like 3 weeks trying to connect the subwoofer with the soundbar and can't pair it. The re-pairing steps don't work, so I was having to unplug the electric supply and reset the entire system every time and nothing, I used to love this brand but now I'm disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Soundbar - Avoid This Soundbar initially sounded fantastic. After 5 months it started to crackle & buzz from TV source through HDMI. Issue reported to JBL along with videos of crackling & buzzing. 6 weeks on and lots of emails I am still waiting for this to be resolved. Not what I’d expect from JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge Sound - Small Footprint - Amazing Value! This speaker system is impressive! JBL seems to have perfected the science of big sound from small speakers in the past decade and this system is no exception. The packaging is excellent as usual and it arrived in perfect condition a lot faster than I thought. Super easy to set up. It’s like “plugging in a toaster” easy! Within a couple minutes of arriving I had these babies fired up and booming. TV shows immediately took on new dynamics and presence, but the real test was just listening to my favorite music. Every measure including those with deeper bass were exceptionally vivid and played with ease even at higher volumes. I love how nicely this speaker system looks in this set up and love how the sources and volume is displayed through the grill. Very cool. I’ve listened to other speakers like these at Best Buy in much higher price ranges and for the money these need to be on the top of your list. I don’t anticipate any trouble with these speakers. I’ve used them every day for the last week and they’ve been flawless. My past purchases from JBL have always been outstanding but I did experience a problem with a small Bluetooth speaker a few years ago. Customer service was “Nordstrom’s” good so buy with confidence. My only complaint is That the instruction manuals could use a little more detailed information and should be printed large enough for most people to be able to read. That frustration slowly melted away as the music began to play.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall I bought it in Greece Nov21 in a very reasonable price. Easy to plug in and connect through Optical and ready to go in a sec with a smart Samsung tv. All good but there is always a but. The sound, with any application, (Netflix, my tuner, Youtube,) is far better than when you watch TV. That is when you want more volume and that is poor. 32 is the max!! It should be 40 at least to watch a for example a film or a sports event and get a full experience. Bass, high or middle are not a problem in the room, so that is my problem, the max volume. Will there be an update for this?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Dollar I bought this a while ago and it sounded great right out of the box. It is a great quality soundbar, I like that it has a screen so you can see what it is on and also the subwoofer is great quality as well, it sounds just right and it has three settings of low, mid and high. It is default at mid and sounds well balanced at mid but it is nice to set it at low when you want to fall asleep to music or set it to high if you want to pump up the bass to really thump. This soundbar doesn't have adjustments for bass or treble like the Samsung soundbars do but it honestly doesn't need that because jbl made this sound amazing already and I am finally happy and don't need to look at soundbars anymore, I am so glad that I purchased the jbl bar 2.1 deep bass, it is a truly amazing sounding soundbar and I never want to stop listening to my music through this wonderful system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound works seemlessly I have been looking for a sound bar and wireless subwoofer to add on to our gaming room entertainment system for some time. I figured this would be a good option that was relatively simple and would meet that need. However, as I have come to find with JBL, all of their products continuously exceed my expectations. It packs a far better sound than I could have imagined considering its price range. Although it is not the smallest sound bar on the market, it has a really nice clean look that blends well under any TV. It also came with wall mounting brackets should I decide to hang it up down the road. The wireless subwoofer throws really rich deep bass throughout our living room but it does not take up a lot of space. I tried placing the subwoofer in the furthest points in the room and it did not have any issues connecting. The best thing about this system aside from its impressive sound is that it just works without any problems. Other sound bars I have had in the past would intermittently lose connection with the wireless sub-woofer and this one works every time. The wireless Bluetooth works great too. I was also surprised how clear the voice is. Other systems I had in the past required adjusting the voice volume and bass levels continuously while watching a TV show or movie. This one really has a nice balance at all times and I can focus more on relaxing versus adjusting volume levels. This was a huge pain for me in the past! If you want a simple sound bar and wireless subwoofer that delivers great sound at a lower cost, this one is for you! It is simple to setup, easy to navigate the controls, throws great sound, and just works without any problems. I made the switch to JBL a few years ago after having considerable trouble and continual disappointment with other big brand names. Of all the JBL products I have owned, I’ve had zero problems to date and I'm glad I made the switch! Of note, I did receive this as a free product to review. However, it was perfect timing as I was in the market for one anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Good Simple Set-up Sounds Great! I am an audio guy. Through the years I have owned everything from audiophile home stereo to massive PA gear and everything in-between. Most of it JBL. As a commissioning agent, my job is to make sure equipment performs for the customer the way the manufacturer says it will perform. (Full disclosure, I do not currently commission audio systems) When JBL sent me the Bar 2.1 Deep Bass to evaluate I decided to conduct my evaluation as I would at a commissioning. The Bar 2.1 arrived at my lab in a shipping box. The product is packed in a relatively small chair shaped box. It all unpacks easily with a minimum of packing material. Once out of the box the two units, the sound bar and the subwoofer, were actually heavier than I expected. The sound bar is well constructed, aesthetically pleasing and elegantly understated. The bar is made of plastic with a matte dark gray metal grill that completely covers the front. They did not put a logo on the front of the bar furthering its ability to disappear into ones décor. The subwoofer is actually quite pretty. I cannot verify the construction material, but it feels solid with a downward firing woofer and a gloss black rear facing port...quite stunning. Connections on the sub are as simple as it gets...power. Plug the supplied AC power cord in and it is ready to go. The sound bar connections are almost as simple, Power in, USB, HDMI In and Out and Optical Digital out. Being anxious to listen to this new wonder I temporarily set it up in my rehearsal room with the sound bar sitting atop a row of 18" subs in the midst of a sizeable PA. I attached the power cords, plugged them in and the system was ready for input. I set my tablet and with a touch of the provided remotes’ Bluetooth button, I was connected! SUPER SIMPLE! For years JBL has touted its “100 hour torture test” running each driver at rated output for 100 hours. I ran program music, at 75% volume for 8 hours. The volume was really quite impressive. Clear, articulate, loud yet expressive with deep rich bass capable of subtle nuance and chest thumping thunder. At a couple of points throughout the day visitors stopped, looked inquisitively and asked, “is that the PA playing?”. Of course this is a small unit that cannot match the output of a concert PA but the fact that the sound of the 2.1 Deep Bass with 300 watts of total power is powerful enough to elicit the question from audio veterans in a large room speaks highly to the power and clarity of this unit. After eight hours the unit showed no signs of wear or audible audio degradation. The next day I set it up in a living room environment. I set the sub in the corner 3’ from the sound bar 4” from the wall as directed in the provided quick start guide. The sound bar was placed on a table in front of the TV. Running a variety of programs, it was obviously better sounding than the TVs’ speakers. Amazingly articulate with plenty of bass for musical interludes and of course, explosions. I was a little put off because there was a noticeable spike in the mid frequencies. Understandable, since its primary duty is to reproduce spoken content. After a day of listening I decided to mount the sound bar to the wall. Using the supplied mounting hardware, it was very easy. The supplied blocks mount the sound bar about an inch away from the wall. In my situation mounting the sound bar above the TV worked out best. THE SOUND WAS AMAZING! No doubt in my mind, for this application mounting the sound bar turned TV into a truly exciting audio event. I watched everything from game shows to action movies and the sound was superb. Using the HDMI ARC cable offers some features depending on your TV. I went out and purchased a Digital audio cable. On my TV it gave me some listening options but to my ears, the sound was the same as with HDMI. With a newer model TV I think one could connect without wire at all. I am still a bit of an audio snob so this unit will not replace anything in my audio arsenal rather, a pleasant addition. It is simple to use, looks good and sounds great. Exactly what one would expect from JBL.

Asked by: Carl56
Our newer JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass has a &quot;Smart mode&quot; enabled by default that lets you enjoy TV programs with rich sound effects. For TV programs such as news and weather forecasts, you can reduce sound effects by disabling the smart mode and switching to the &quot;Standard mode&quot;. Please check out our Owner's Manual for more Audio Settings.

Is there any way of adjusting the treble level of this device? My JBL Flip puts out much better treble.

Asked by: OdedZ
There is no direct control for the treble only. What you can try is to switch between the Smart mode and Standard mode and choose which is better for you. Smart mode: With the smart mode enabled by default, you can enjoy TV programs with rich sound effects. For TV programs such as news and weather forecasts, you can reduce sound effects by disabling the smart mode and switching to the standard mode. Smart mode: EQ settings and JBL Surround Sound are applied for rich sound effects. Standard mode: The preset EQ settings are applied for standard sound effects. To disable the smart mode, do the following: &bull; On the remote control, press and hold the mute button until &ldquo;TOGGLE&rdquo; is displayed. Press +. -&ldquo;OFF SMARTMODE&rdquo;: The smart mode is disabled. -Next time you switch on the soundbar, the smart mode is enabled again automatically.

Is the sound bar compatible with TVs that do not have an HDMI ARC port? If there are other ways to connect the sound bar and TV, please share!

Asked by: RV2074
Full compatibility with all HDMI-CEC devices is not guaranteed. Contact your TV manufacturer if you have problems with the HDMI-CEC compatibility of your TV. You can connect the soundbar with your TV by using an optical cable (sold separately).
