Arena 180 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good! JBL claims that these speakers are inspired by the legendary M2 loudspeaker monitors. If you know about M2s or heard them you'd think that that is a pretty bold statement since M2s are arguably one of the best sounding Reference Monitors ever created. But after listening to these 180s I can understand what JBL means by "inspired". Arena 180 sounds amazingly good for its price. It probably could compete with loudspeakers in $700-$900 price range. It has a very strong and balanced low end and super crisp high frequency. The fact that it is sounding very consistent off-axis proves that it is a well-designed and well-constructed loudspeaker. Kudos to JBL!
