Sonos beware! JBL’s recent soundbar has a clever trick up its sleeve


Sonos is likely to be the go-to brand when considering of shopping for a TV-boosting soundbar however the premium audio firm is about to get some serious competition from the team at JBL. The brand new Bar 1000 will arrive in stores much later this 12 months but Express.co.uk has already had a probability to listen to what it’s fabricated from and things sound seriously impressive.

This speaker features 4 up-firing drivers which help to create a full 360 cinema-style experience. But that is not all as on each end of the soundbar are two mini speakers which detach so that they could be placed anywhere inside a room for a full surround sound experience.

These two mini boom boxes are fully rechargeable (via the important soundbar) so don’t need any annoying wires with JBL promising at the very least 10 hours of usage before they may need a refill. This idea is not actually recent with JBL releasing similar detachable speakers prior to now, nevertheless, things have now been massively improved to make this latest experience way higher than before.

Together with those surround sound speakers, those buying the brand new JBL Bar 1000 may even get a separate subwoofer as a part of the value with the entire set-up fully compatible with immersive Dolby Atmos and DTS:X 3D surround sound.

We viewed clips from the blockbuster Batman movie with the audio booming with sofa-shaking bass. Voices also sounded crystal clear because of JBL’s PureVoice technology which uses algorithms to reinforce what’s being said.

When pushing things to the max there was no distortion and the entire set-up could be tweaked to your tastes via the in-built EQ settings.

It’s all pretty clever but then it ought to be considering the value. When the JBL Bar 1000 hits stores in late December/early January it’ll cost around £1,000.

That is way costlier than the £899 Sonos Arc and twice the value of the Sonos Beam.

Speaking concerning the launch, Dave Rogers, President, HARMAN Lifestyle Division, said: “The complete recent JBL Bar range is really taking the bar to the subsequent level, nevertheless it’s the JBL Bar 1000 that stands out for me.

“To pack this many features, drivers and the resulting jaw-dropping acoustic performance into one slim, easy-to-use soundbar, is an incredible feature and I’m pleased with our team for delivering such a product.”
