Excerpt: Bought this sound bar right before Thanksgiving and so so glad we did. It sounds awesome, and love that your able to Bluetooth to your phone and play your music Took a little while to hook up but once we figured out what we was doing it was good.. Don't have no popping noise here.
Excerpt: I purchased an SB400 to upgrade from my LG TV's lackluster speakers. It has been the best purchase I've made since I signed my mortgage papers on my first house. The sound is very rich, yet clear. The subwoofer leaves a little to be desired in volume and low end extension, but in all reality, you can't expect such a small driver to deliver the type of bass that can shake the foundation of your house. I'd say that for it's size, it is a solid performer.
Great Sound, awesome subwoofer, bad remote learnin

Excerpt: I bought this sound bar for my father to go in his room over the garage. I am familiar with JBL speakers and I know that you can count on them for quality sound. The SB400 was no exception. Easy setup, subwoofer synced right up and sounded great and I couldn't be more happy with sound bar fullness. I used the optical audio connection since the HDMI inputs on my dad's tv are broken. Sounds great and I'm glad that the optical audio was a feature.
Excerpt: I bought the SB400 and hooked up and I'm very impressed with sound quality and volume. My only problem is trying to "learn" volume on my TV remote so I don't have to use that small remote every time I need to adjust the volume. I had two phone calls with tech support. It appears I am doing everything correct because the flashing light on the sound bar turns to solid white then back to amber like it should but it never works on the remote.
Excerpt: Overall worth the money great for music,tv,sports,and movies. Only con i found is that when watching movies in surround mode it doesnt project voices great, find urself turning up audio and having to lower the bass some. Besides that its a great product.
Summary: I had this soundbar system from over two weeks now, and have put it through all kinds of music for listening test. Overall it is a solid performer, with deep and powerful bass, and amazingly clean and crisp midrange sound. I also had the chance to listen to some very expensive sound system (Bose Lifestyle® 135 Series, Klipsch Reference Series RF-82 II for example) which are being sold for over 2K and above, and this JBL soundbar can surprisingly hold its own.
Summary: I like almost everything about this soundbar especially a sound. Sound quality is most important for me in soundbar. I am happy with it overall. I didn't give it 5 stars because of following technical and/or design flaws. HDMI control: I cannot get its volume controlled with TV remote leveraging HDMI CEC.
