Sound Quality Above Average But Several Annoyances

By Mattymatt716

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

Purchased 1 year ago. Sub lags. Voices sound significantly lower than music and effects- I didn't believe that this could be the case when I read the reviews, but sure enough, they were right. Voices sound very quiet. Unit shuts down when I don't want it to. It's a real pain to operate unless you use the dedicated remote. I got a great deal on mine, and I still think that an alternative for 1/2 the price would have made me happier.

Awesome Sound!!! One small problem...

By Sinuhe

from Texas, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

It has been about 6 months since I bought this sound bar. Let me tell you that the sound is amazing!!! The only downside that I have notices is that in some cases the audio from the sub cuts out every 10 seconds or so. I noticed this specially when the wife is using Netflix on another room. For some reason having an active Wi-Fi signal near by make the sub to cut out. I tested this out multiple times and every time my wife would stop using Wi-Fi the sound would go back to normal. This problem is not as frustrating since we have different work schedules so the only time I have this problem is on weekends when I'm online on my PS4 and she is watching her shows. Other than that I really like the sound bar. Hopefully JBL can look at this problem since it seems that other customer are having similar issues. Don't know if they are also related to the wifi.

By Bryman

from Ontario, Canada

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

i have been running this sound system for just under a year. very happy overall with the quality of the audio. however, subwoofer frequently unpairs from soundbar causing a noticeable stop in sound from the sub until it pairs again. will happen every couple of minutes for a second or two. extremely annoying

Broken Circuit Board

By CircuitBoard1234

from Houston

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

This sound bar was very gently used, and after two years the circuit board broke. Of course the electronics warranty is only good for 1 year, so a repair was not covered. You would think a product at this price level, that is supposedly well made, would not have circuit board issues after just two years.

Bad subwoofer pairing

By Eli P

from Wichita, KS, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

I've had it about a week now. It sounds great but the subwoofer will disconnect for a moment about every 7-8 seconds. No matter what device is connected to the soundbar, the same issue happens. Every 7-8 seconds the subwoofer cuts out completely for about half of a second then cuts back in. Very irritating when trying to enjoy anything, music or movies.

Great sound when it's not sleeping!

By TarynvH

from Pearland, TX, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

The sound from this system is amazing, when it works. The base can vibrate pictures on my wall while still sounding crisp and clean. Unfortunately the sound bar keeps going to sleep while in use. Pretty frustrating!

GREAT SOUND BAR

By eezee66

from Carmichael, Sacramento, CA, United States

Comments about JBL Cinema Home Theater Soundbar System:

I shopped all brands and price ranges of sound bars and the SB400 is the top of the list. Most sound bars either give good vocals or bass but not both. The SB400 fills both of those areas perfectly. I just set up my SB400 Refurb and couldn't be happier. Crystal clear vocals, very responsive bass. Pared with my tv volume control easily. Only disappointment is that the on-screen display doesn't work with my tv, but small issue to have such a nice system.
