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 3 out of 5 by Daylin from irritating sound cuts I've owned my JBL Bar Studio for over a year now, and watching movies is really a problem...the sound keeps cutting throughout the movies. I have to connect via Bluetooth through my laptop for fluent sound quality. Really disappointed

Rated 2 out of 5 by JBLcritic from Disappointing long term experience I've owned this soundbar from new, used for little over a year. It's currently back for its second repair. I first experienced the sound loss at low volumes duly resolved by a firmware but since then its developed odd behaviour where sound cuts out completely, and most recently just turns itself off and back on when it feels like it. Although i've been very pleased with this products performance when it works I shall be selling it and moving to another manufacturers soundbar. I also don't feel I'll buy JBL again as it only takes one experience to put me off a brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Andy Wiggans from A big output for a small input I've been a loyal Richer Sounds customer ever since the company was established. Why? Because I have always got excellent service and equally as good equipment. The same goes for my latest purchase of this JBL sound bar. We wanted something that would boost the sound of our TV and this piece of kit does that with lots more besides. You will struggle to find anything better at this price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cokefd from Good, but needs better support Sound is much better than what comes from the TV speakers, however, there are a few caveats in my setup. Connecting with a Panasonic 750DX and SkyQ, the ARC connection gets out of sync. Swapping channels fixes the issue, but swapping again causes it to get out of sync again. Connecting through optical to SkyQ directly works fine, but that means that the TV needs to be connected through something else. Connecting optical to the TV has the same problem. When there are low sounds or a time of quietness, it stops sound for a split second, that is annoying. Seems like this can be fixed through a firmware update, but trying to contact support got no answer. I got the response twice about my case cannot be assigned to a support agent. Overall is good sound quality, much better than the TV, but could be simpler.
