  • Too much tin, not enough punch
    by

    from Calgary on November 10, 2019

    Too tinny. The big explosions are good - nice bass. But when people are just speaking it is too tinny - the mids and lows are non existent. After watching a few hours of different genres of movies and TV shows, I am going to return it. The sound quality is just too brutal, the sound engineers did not do a good job on this design.

    This sound bar and subwoofer have great sound quaility at any volume. The system is easy to set up and use, the remote is clear and easy to oporate. I love the levels of bass options, they are appropriatly spaced in diffrence of bass. I also LOVE the bluetooth to connect my cell phone to! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

  • Huge boost over TV sound
    by b4d27

    I should start this review by stating that I have a personal bias against sound bars, even though I owned one prior to receiving the Bar 2.1 DB. I'm more of a 5.1 system, big-ish speaker lover. Getting that out of the way, I think this thing is really good for what the intended audience is. It looks unobtrusive, but very complimentary of my bedroom TV, where I tested it, with the dark gray finish. To my ears, it sounded really good, with very clear dialogue during most TV programs. Dialogue was again good with movies, and the compact sub actually seems to punch well above its weight class, while being very clean and tight. Now to the downside... If you want to listen to very much music from your system, this is probably not your best choice. While the bass module is actually capable of reproducing music pretty well, the bar is Really Bright when it comes to music from a variety of sources, and ear fatigue happens quickly, even dialing down the highs with eq. I noticed it early, so played it for several hours while i was away to make sure it was broken in before trying again, without much change. If you're a heavy music listener, and short on space, you're much better off with a pair of JBL's excellent bookshelf speakers of similar pricing. But as I stated earlier, if pulling dialogue from TV and movies is your primary need, along with some nice explosions and surprising bass response, then this sleek and unobtrusive setup might just be perfect.
