JBL Cinema 500

 

The JBL Cinema 500 system is reasonably priced, easily mountable and able to fill a large room with convincing movie sound and toe-tapping music.

Performs with both music and movies ; Versatile mounting options ; Solidly built

Aesthetics a matter of taste ; Physically a bit on the big side ; Spring clip speaker terminals

The speakers' looks are a matter of taste, but, once again, JBL's home theatre know-how is clearly evident in this subwoofer/satellite system. Reasonably priced, easily mountable and able to fill a large room with convincing and well integrated movie...

Great Sound

 

I've always loved the sound of Harman Kardon speakers, but they have always been so expensive due to their high quality. Anyone who buys these at this price will be so happy they made this purchase. the best part is if one speaker goes bad, you can...

Lives Up to the JBL Reputation

 

Looking at similar systems by P*** A****, E*****, and other makes sold here at about ~$400, I'm still mystified how Egg hasn't marked these JBLs down. Egg would sell more of them if they had done so.

I'm "throwing in" with comment on this product, although I didn't get it at the Egg. Egg offers comparable speaker systems at markdowns competitive with other brands. Egg has chosen to keep Cinema 500 at closer to MSRP ; These are great speakers. You...

You'll either like the aesthetic design of these speakers, or you won't. Some complain about "flimsy" wire connection clips, but I don't see it as a problem. You'll want to secure your speaker wire to baseboards etc. anyway, so you shouldn't worry...

I never thought Bluetooth would do this.

 

I'm an audiophile from way back... I never thought that I would be saying any wireless connection sounded good, much less Bluetooth. But this is impressive. Obviously I'm not using these with a mixer, but I would in a heartbeat, they are just amazing...

Excellent sound quality, sharp highs, strong mids, perfect balanced bass

No wired input, but I'm sure you have other headphones for that

Great Speaker system

 

Very balanced sound output and speakers output a crisp and clear sound. Subwoofer has plenty of power and does not rattle the walls. Bass goes pretty deep and downfiring woofer is a great addition

None that can think of except for price!! But definetly worth the extra bucks
