JBL Bar 2.1


The JBL Bar 2.1 soundbar comes with a wireless sub, adjustable listening modes, and a price that feels low for the system's overall quality.

Affordable. Powerful audio performance with strong, adjustable bass and bright highs. Useful remote. Various sound modes, including virtual surround. Bluetooth streaming.

Light on accessories. Optical cable doesn't stay in place well.

For $300, the JBL Bar 2.1 is an excellent value. You get extremely powerful sub-bass, crisp highs, the ability to adjust the bass balance—essentially the complete package. It may not be as powerful as the more expensive Bar 3.1, and yes, it can distort...
