About this deal

Our soundbars for your TV feature not only the highest quality speakers and high performance, but we also have wireless and Bluetooth models so that you can pump up the volume or stream your favourite tunes from your mobile device. Often you can find the soundbar on sale, so it's still worth considering if you're in the market for a simple 5.

Connect this soundbar to your existing voice assistant-enabled speaker so you can instantly ask Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri to stream your favourite music straight to your soundbar. I want to integrate it into a multi-zone receiver setup and use the soundbar HDMI inputs as an audio passthrough.

With Dolby Atmos content, the experience is also not very differentiated, as it does not integrate top speakers to project the sound upwards. It’s remarkably easy to set up the system: you unplug the satellite speakers, place them where they're going to sit in your room, plug a small black microphone into the main soundbar, and then run auto-calibration, which will fill your room with short bursts of loud and unpleasant white noise for a brief period. Please note that depending on your settings, it may not be possible to access all of the site’s features. worked well at delivering multichannel immersion, provided you could place them accurately and remembered to recharge them.

You can use the bar as a hub between different devices, like your TV and your PC, for video passthrough. The HDMI input connection also offers 4K video quality from a compatible video player or gaming console. While it can playback surround sound, unfortunately, you can't enjoy object-based content like Dolby Atmos, which is more and more common on streaming platforms. With 590W of total system power output, entertainment will be transformed into an immersive listening experience that you can’t help but enjoy.The soundbar features JBL SoundShift®, which allows you to instantly switch between the sound from your TV and the Bluetooth sound from your mobile phone or tablet. The soundstage doesn't seem very focused either and objects seem to be coming from a general area rather than coming from precise pinpoint locations. Surround as a lively mix of thumping electronic score, roaring engines and clunking gear sticks, a fullscale and fullrange sonic assault on your living room that’s massively enjoyable. It sounds like there is something wrong with your soundbar, since the pairing between the sub and bar should be memorized by the hardware.

We would still suggest the Subwoofer to be near the Soundbar as possible to avoid wireless interference(audio cut offs,disconnection,etc. The JBL Bar 800 with Dolby Atmos includes two up-firing drivers and detachable battery-powered surround speakers to create an immersive 3D cinema experience without having to draw extra cables. Each satellite speaker has a battery life of about 10 hours, and are charged when plugged into the soundbar. However, if you mostly watch surround content, you may prefer the JBL since it has a better surround performance.Interest is charged at the APR displayed however you can make additional payments or pay your balance off early at no extra cost. However, if you are referring to the surround speakers, they should be charged to full in less than 3 hours and 10 hours of playtime. If however, you’re the type of person who's going to use your soundbar as the main sound system for your living room, this is not the device for you.

The manufacturer recommends that you use the smart mode feature when you want to enjoy rich sound effects in your TV shows. Includes: 1 x soundbar, 2x Detachable wireless surround speakers, 1 wireless subwoofer, Power cords, HDMI cable, 2x L-shape wall mount bracket.

The 500 is a newer model that offers better sound quality, with a better stereo soundstage and better stereo dynamics. Designed with Airplay, Alexa Multi-Room Music and Chromecast built-in, you’ve got over 300 streaming options making it easier than ever to play what you want.
