Give your TV the sound it deserves, with the JBL Bar Studio.

Dual Bass Port design for powerful sound

Featuring a Dual Bass Port and an independent woofer, the JBL Bar Studio punches much harder than typical TV speakers. Quality JBL stereo tweeters are also on hand to provide crisp and detailed top end.

Customise the sound
With Movie, Music, Voice and Sport settings you can get just the right balance for whatever you're listening to. To further tailor the sound to your own preference, you can also adjust the bass level and Surround sound effect.

Bluetooth music streaming
More than just a soundbar, the JBL Bar Studio 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.

Flexible connectivity, including HDMI
Get the best quality connection with the HDMI interface. Thanks to ARC (Audio Return Channel), the soundbar will accept sound from the TV’s tuner whilst also looping through video from another source – such as a Blu-ray player. Other connections include both optical digital and analogue – perfect for other sources you may have.

Works with your TV remote control
This JBL soundbar is designed to work with many of today's top TV remote controls, so you can use your existing TV remote control for both TV and soundbar.

Raise your TV’s game, with the JBL Bar Studio.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sound Bought for a gift for our son and his family, they are over the moon with the difference it has made to their viewing experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound This jbl studio 2.0 sound bar makes a very noticeable upgrade in sound when watching movies, you can not believe what you are hearing from such a small sound bar as it sounds much bigger, its not quite perfect for music as the treble sometimes can sound a little harsh, but overall an excellent sound bar especially for watching movies, and there is also a decent about of punchy bass, overall sound quality is excellent, I highly recommend this sound bar and it is cheap as well punching well above its weight

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for a budget sound bar I linked this up to my bedroom samsung smart tv and the difference is amazing , the clarity is second to none for such a small soundbar , I buy all my audio equipment from richer sounds as I'm never disappointed with the quality and honesty of there products and staff.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lip sync issues I have installed this sound bar to work alongside a LG 65 inch oled tv but have came across several lip sync issues. I have tried the tv thru it’s own speakers and it works fine so has to be sound bar. Have it connected with arc hdmi and optical. Not very impressed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money. Connected to Samsung 49" Q70 via HDMI cable. TV speakers not bad for downward facing on a TV at the price. But using the JBL sound bar adds depth and clarity, improving the overall experience, particularly for music and films. Obviously not the best sound bar available, but for the price excellent value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good soundbar When I bought the JBL Soundbar it arrived next day (with free delivery). But I couldn't get it to turn on. When I called Richer they offered to send a replacement (to be exchanged for the original). There were no "ifs or buts" Richer just did what they said. Courier arrived immediately after intervening weekend, and new soundbar works fine. I have no other experience of soundbar so can't really say much about product, but Richer customer service was excellent.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound but drop out makes it poor This products sounds very good especially for the money. We were very happy until we noticed the sound dropping out in quiet bits of movies. This made films impossible to watch and this makes the sound bar a total waste of money. Had to return to Preston store and got a replacement as we thought it was a one off issue. New jbl sound bar did exactly the same and reading other reviews it sound like this is a common issue with the product. How can you sell a product when the sound drops out as defeats the purpose of having it in the first place. Just replaced with the wharf dale vista model and now having sounds issue with that also. Looks like Another trip to Preston store required!! ☹️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our uses. Excellent value too. We wanted to enhance the sound from our TV, with something that wasn't to big and without spending a fortune. I did some research beforehand and the JBL Bar Studio kept coming up with positive reviews. We have had this for a couple of weeks and are very pleased. It is exactly what we were looking for. Definitely recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big upgrade on basic TV sound, looks great Sounds much better than TV audio, looks the part, bass is alright despite no dedicated subwoofer. Lots of connection options and sound modes etc. If you want better quality audio from a sound bar, be prepared to drop a bit more £££ but it's an alright starting point for those on a budget. 4/5

Thank you for the great service Richer sounds!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great budget sound bar. I’m happy with this product, it packs quite a punch for it’s size, easy to set up, good size. I did nearly give up and return it as it had issues with the sound dropping out whenever there was any brief silence. I contacted JBL customer service who then sent me an update which fixed the problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from heavy bass Bought this over a week ago and am a bit disappointed. The bass is too heavy for my liking which means I have to switch between the sound bar and the internal speaker even at low volumes, and I am considering returning the sound bar.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are sound issues Overall the device is good... But there is one major flaw. When there is a period of silence, such as in a quiz show, when the next person speaks, you miss the first few seconds of their sentence which is highly annoying. I've read about PCM but that did not fix the issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for the price I had a budget in mind to spend on a samsung sound bar and was persuaded by the store assistant to go for the jbl sound bar instead and I have to say that for what I paid it is an absolute gem. The sound quality is great and watching tv or listening to music is just fantastic. 5 star for sure!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound for a smallish sound bar I needed a modest sound bar for an open plan living room, so that I could hear the TV above the fridge, washing machine etc. The sound bar turned up on time via Richer Sounds, was easy to instal/use and produces great sound across the range, for such a small bar. Adds life to a TV emissions with a warm musical tone and good definition for speech. Highly recommended & good value. Only downside is that it doesn’t come with an HDMI lead, but it can still be connected with the optical lead that is provided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Overall: very happy with the purchase. I got it at a price of +- 370EUR (Christmas offer) Looks: Aesthetically ,the quality of the finishes is great. The bar (with surround speakers attached) is wider than regular bars, but still within the limits of the TV set (in this case, a 49" Samsung LED). The subwoofer (10") housing is rather tall (insread of depp) with a downward firing driver. The rounded edges give it an undertated, modern look. Sound features: depending on your preference there are +- 5 sound modes to choose from. For regular TV shows, 'voice' mode is great as it really picks up the dialogue. I find that s'tandard' suits me best. The subwoofer is a massive 10" unit, but luckily the level can be selected to your preference via the remote control. Useful when you want to not wake up sleeping kids at night, or when you want to crank up some music. The level of surround (when the surround speakers are detached) can be selected as well, so you can really make the entire experience as specific as you like. 4 HDMI points, optical in, Bluetooth. Sound quality: Music sounds great. Via Bluetooth, or when using the TV as a source, it creates a decent soundstage. Not as wide as others, but still good enough. Television: Picks up vocals very well. Movies: Using the surround units, it manages to create an immersive experience. Much better than many faux surround bars. It sounds real and because the surround level can be adjusted, you would be able to fill a large room very nicely. Bear in mind that this is no Atmos bar. Just regular Dolby Digital or DTS. Additional comments: comes with all the cables you will need, including HDMI and optical cables. Cons: Due to the date it was released, it does not include wifi + streaming abilities. Not an issue as it has enough HDMI ports to overcome this with a Google Chromecast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small size yet good sound. Excellent value. Wanted a decent soundbar that would fit unobtrusively below a medium size TV. Anything too big or with a separate sub or satellite speakers wasn't acceptable to the family. The JBL pushes out a reasonable amount of full bodied sound (with decent bass) for such a small unit, and I like the way that out-of-the-box it picks up volume/mute commands from the TV remote. If I was being really critical then the higher frequencies can sound a little harsh at VERY high volumes, occasionally JBL's surround effect processing has some odd artefacts, and music doesn't have the depth I'd ideally like - but for the size (and with a sub £100 price tag) those aren't significant complaints! Overall a big improvement on the standard TV speakers and nice to be able to hear all the dialogue for a change.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Jury still out Bought about two weeks ago, very good service from Richer Sounds. I found it easy to set up using optical lead supplied. I wanted something that would improve the clarity of speech and I don’t think there’s a real difference using the sound bar. Instructions are sparse so maybe I haven’t set it up correctly but after two weeks of use I’m not sure there’s any improvement in speech clarity of

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good sound for the money, but not perfect The JBL Bar sounds decent and projects into my living room nicely, however, the sound switches off completely when it’s very quiet on-screen which is a tad annoying.
