Who better than cinema experts JBL to bring home the delights of the big screen in a compact soundbar solution. The JBL SB150 brings out the magic in movies.
Dolby Digital sound in your home
Equipped with JBL speakers, powerful amplification and Dolby Digital processing, the JBL SB150 offers a huge uplift in performance on your TV's speakers. The sound not only has more presence but is also more spacious and detailed, making dialogue easier to follow and music more natural sounding.
Separate sub for powerful JBL sound
As you'd expect from one of the most highly respected names in the studio business, sound quality is a high priority. In order to get the sort of dynamic clout demanded by action movies, the JBL SB150 uses a separate subwoofer. With its dedicated woofer and amplifier, the SB150's punch is leagues ahead of a typical TV. The bass is also precise, so that soundtracks are driven along with real verve and attack. The wireless connection keeps the clutter down too.
Customise the sound
With Movie, Music and News settings you can get just the right balance for whatever you're listening to. To further tailor the sound to your own preference, the subwoofer has an independently controlled volume level.
Bluetooth music streaming
More than just a soundbar, the JBL SB150 is also an effective music player. Thanks to a built-in Bluetooth receiver, you can link your smartphone, PC, laptop or other device with Bluetooth and stream your stored or cloud-based music - no wires required! It means that you'll not only enjoy superior TV sound but also have a quality system for your stored music, too.
For a big cinema sound, without needing a big space, the JBL SB150 brings the thrill of the cinema home.

Not what I was hoping for
Purchased this soundbar to replace a Sony one that died and decided to pay twice as much nearly as the Sony one had cost in the hope of getting a better product.
The set up was very straightforward however as soon as we started using this we knew i wasnt going to be what we wanted, the sound it produced had no depth to it and sounded really tinny, the bass from the sub woofer was non existent and turning up the bass on the remote makes no difference at all. I checked the set up and everything was OK but after 2 weeks of trying to convince myself it wasnt too bad I took it back to the store for a refund. The store manager at Maidstone (Ben) was first class and exchanged the JBL unit with no quibble, was very patient while we chose another unit and gave us some great advice..
We now have a Cambridge Soundbase and the difference from the moment we plugged it in was amazing.

Waste of time
I returned this item three days after purchase. Not only was the sound very poor, but the 'base' unit lost pairing contact with the sound bar on day three and it was impossible to make it work again.
I had to pay about £30.00 'handling fee' when returning it to Richer sounds.
All very dissapointing.

Good sound quality, simple to install
Bought this to replace an LG soudbar that had developed a fault. At first hearing i thought was a little too bright but realised that it was because this has a truer sound than the LG which was wooley after a week now of listening to it the speakers have warmed up and the sound qualty much improved, only 2 small gripes one being it turns off quite quickly when no sound being input ie when muting tv and the other is that there is no display to show volume level or what mode you are in, but still good value for money.

Surprising sound in a compact package
The wireless subwoofer is a great idea and works well, though experimentation in placing is need to get the best results. The main unit has a bright and clear sound. As I am in my "mature" years, it is a major improvement on poor tv sound, on which speakers are pointed at the wall!
Movies just came back to life!
Overall, this package is good value and very easy to set up, providing that your tv has an optical output.

JBL SB150 good soundbar for the price point
Looks good but sound even better than samsumg, LG and panasonic models. Optical and Bluetooth works well with SKY android TV box and smart phone. Wireless sub can be placed further away, but the volume has to be turned up to hear the bass. At low level its not noticeable. 2.1 wonder now if I had gone out for 5.1 thats one thing I miss.

Bought this JBL sound bar to replace my aging not so good Panasonic one,was after a Samsung unit but was out of stock & this item was recommended by the counter staff, although smaller in size the sound quality is so much beter & it has Bluetooth so I can stream music from my iPhone. Thought I might have to return it as the hand control has a dent in it next to the on/off switch but it works all right so not bothering as it's a 70 mile round trip to the shop.

A great sounding unit for a great price
I was looking for a soundbar which would not break the bank and yet had a good performance level.. hard to find I know but after a bit of research and the helpful staff at the Birmingham store I came to the conclusion that the JBL was unbeatable for cost and performance.
Since buying I have not been disappointed and I would recommend to anyone.

Excellent sound reproduction.
Slight niggle - the writing on the remote control is quite faint, especially difficult to see in dim light.
