JBL attitude

  • Summary: This is a nice sounding speaker but it is cheaply constructed in a way that it cannot be repaired very easily. Definitely not worth the full retail price. If you can get one very cheaply it would be OK, but that would be the only way you should consider JBL. I had a vibration develop around 200Hz in one of my towers. I got nothing but the run around from support. First they told me they were very busy and trying to catch up.

Average sound, but at the price what can you expect?

  • Summary: I didn't really expect much from these speakers due to their low price. The sound isn't that crisp despite being played on high end equipment driven with a vinyl deck and Ortofon 2M Black, a valve amp and pre-amp. The distinction just isn't there compared to a set of paradigms I linked up from my previous set up and so this is why they get lower marks.

  • Summary: Bought two of these and I'm very unimpressed, the treble for starters is muddled and inaccurate and nowhere near as good as JBL's cheap Monitor Pro 1's. The mid range is excellent, really, really good. The bass is a joke for such large speakers and is missing a large part of the 80-200hz that JBL's ES 250 subwoofer just can not fill.

JBL = gut ? NEIN !

  • Summary: Ich habe die Boxen neben Quadral Argentum 390 hier stehen. Die JBL gehen so schnell wieder zurück das glaubt keiner. Das zeigt das ein bekannter Name nicht für guten sound stehen muss. Die Quadral sind um Welten besser (ohne zu überlegen haben hier das alle hörer einstimmig auch so empfunden) Die boxen klingen matschig, nicht fein , höhen tiefen passen nicht zu einander. Das zeigt mal wieder was für ein Glückstreffer mit den Argentum 390 hatte Schade JBL...
