JBL Bar 3.1 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Blown Away ! I wanted a simple set up for my Game Room and the 70'' LED TV in it . For over a year now I looked at tons of sound bars since I always felt that would be the easiest choice , but I couldn't find anything that sounded great and actually had bass , since the game room is also 25 x 18 . Then after totally giving up I found this , I can't say thank you enough JBL for making a absolutely amazing sound bar system with balls , BIG HUGE BASS BALLS !!!! And the kids and highs are just as amazing sounding !!!!! Don't wait another single moment , if this is what your looking for , get off your butt , and run to the store and buy this system worth every single penny !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to replace an older receiver/speaker set in our small, oddly-shaped living room in order to reduce the number of wires everywhere. So far, very happy with with sound quality. Set up was easy. The room looks super clean now with just the sound bar and the sub tucked away in the corner. One thing I'd like to see are on-screen display of the volume level when using HDMI out to the TV. (I'm using the soundbar as an HDMI switch, so my PS4 and AppleTV go HDMI out to the inputs on the Bar, then Bar HDMI out to the TV). The remote is also a little light, weight-wise. On the plus side, the new AppleTV 4k remote controls the volume on the Bar. Thanks JBL for the super fast shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superiority soundbar in its class! The sales person at best buy convinced me to buy Definitive Technology - W Studio Micro 3.1 My first choice was Definitive and caught my attention since it offers deep deep black Friday discounts but It has a lot of connectivity and compatibility issues during setup. Not compatible with my cable receiver and 78" Samsung uhd remotes and I was having very hard time connecting with subwoofer because my router also wasn't on the compatible list. I finally gave up on Definitive and ended up returning it and got a JBL 3.1 sound bar and it was perfect! Awesome overall sound and powerful bass! most of all, the setup was very friendly with out the mess. I feel confident that it'll serve me well for the years to come.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Where is the midrange sound?? I buy this bar and its a good stuff. Great design, great deep bass, great loud high sound. BUT!!!! And this is the biggest problem with this stuff: The midrange/mid-tones. JBL staff! Where is the midrange sound? I try many many music and if the music use this midrange Hz bass/sound, i hear only high sound and a minimum / very minimum bass or the low hz bass. I think the soundbar size is very low, and the tweeters is too small and not give mid-tones and the subwoofer bass is too deep so no mid-tones. Sry JBL, but this sound bar is not good for music. :( The virtual sound is terrible, its only a wider stereo. But the soundbar is good for movies. Transformers rulez!! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sound Ever I didn't expect so much bass and voice clarity,,,,,like someone said before it shakes my room,my living room and my neighbor upstairs has knock my door twice ,,,,exactly what i was looking for. Thanks,,,I'm thinking about the 5.1 for next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound quality The speaker has enough punch of bass that can shake the room at levels above 20 and at the same time, the voice clarity while watching English movies is a super specialty. I am in love with these speakers that delivers crisp voice clarity and excellent bass all that is controllable from remote. With surround mode on, the speaker gives room filling surrounding sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound bar Bought this to replace my denon receiver that stopped doing HDMI pass through, the sound and HDMI pass through work and sound flawless!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and value The JBL 3.1 is terrific, super loud with amazing bass that can easily be reduced. There are so many ways to adjust the sound that you have to figure out which sound is best for each type of item viewed, from movies to sports or when watching blue ray. Takes a little time to figure out but definitely not overwhelming. Wondering if there will be surround speakers that i can add like the 5.1 system.

Can you fix this very big mistake in future update? Automatically turn off the speaker when there is no signal? This is very annoying when you scrolling in game menu or somewhere. Please set it to real 10 min without signal and not to cca 1 ms.

How can I connect the sound bar to a Bluetooth signal from a cell phone and also to the bluetooth signal from 2 or more cell phones at the same time?

Asked by: Juan Gabriel
You can pair multiple devices to the Bar 3.1 but can only play 1 device at a time. Simply put the bar on pairing mode by pressing on the bluetooth button on the remote if you wish to pair another device.

What is the SW UPGRADE connector (next to the pairing button) on the back of the subwoofer. There is nothing talking about it in the manual.

Asked by: junior arruda
The SW Upgrade jack is mainly used for software upgrades that are going to be released in the future for any fixes on the sound bar and not to connect an additional subwoofer.

Anyone else have volume issues with Fios?  Any button I use on my cable or universal remotes changes the volume based on its last volume input. Never had a problem with COX cable box. Anyone have a fix. Put in tech request a week ago

Asked by: Gsilcox
I'm having the same issue with my cable remote. I use Spectrum cable at one time Time Warrner but at first I thought it was because I programed the remote to the sound bar. I replaced the remote and programmed it just to my tv only but it still controls the sound bar. When I'm scrolling through my guide its also changing the volume and inputs on the sound bar at the same time. Only way I got around it was not pointing the remote directly at the tv while I'm using it.

Hi, I've got an electrical shutter not far from my Samsung 4k TV & JBL Bar 3.1 and each time I use the shutter , the JBL bar is restarting, as if it gets an external command from the shutter. How can I prevent this interference? Thank You, Helen Katz

Asked by: HelenLeontina
Hello! As long as the electronic shutter is not connected with the soundbar or TV this should not happen. We would like to work with you directly to help you with your issue.
