JBL On Air Control 2.4G wireless speaker system review

 

The picture on the box that contains the JBL On Air Control 2.4G displays two speakers, a small transmitter, and a little remote, but omits the tangle of wires required to get any sound out of the system. It is, after all, a wireless speaker system--so...

A first--a wireless speaker that sounds as good as a wired speaker; works with any product that offers line-level outputs or headphone jacks; solid build quality; versatile mounting options (including the enclosed brackets); line-in port for...

This "wireless" speaker system includes quite a few wires; usefulness as surround channels is limited to receivers with preamplifier outputs; remote control delivered quirky performance.

JBL's On Air Control 2.4G requires an annoying amount of wires and has limited compatibility with surround receivers, but its impressive sound quality surpasses that of previous wireless solutions.

Expert Review

 

A highly versatile set of speakers, the Control 2.4G's wireless nature and balanced sound range make them a great choice for almost any task.

Clear and balanced audio range, versatile design

Limited control options, poor performance in the very lowest bass frequencies

JBL Control 2.4G review

 

These active speakers from JBL have a wireless twist, and can be connected to any MP3 player, laptop or hi-fi system

Simple to use ; wireless sound ; stereo inputs ; supplied cables ; good sound

Lack a little dynamic excitement ; range could be better

Easy to use and good sound – a fine addition to a niche market
