Fair sound poor bass responce!

Markunder, JBL
30 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I got these about a month ago to play on my pc at work, needles to say I need to keep the volume low in the office so bass will suffer. But having said that, I have a flip 2 for about 6 month now and am very impressed with the sound quality. It has very good bass response for such a small driver so I felt the Jembe's would be just as impressive given their larger size and the fact that they are not battery driven.

Connection Issues

GJM, Amazon
21 January 2015
  • Summary: Purchased these speakers to play music remotely from my PC, unfortunately they are undetectable even 40 feet away. Seem to work fine using Bluetooth from my smartphone but the PC dongle just doesn't work. Replaced the dongle with another brand and have the same issue. Given that my reason for buying them was the PC I'm not a fan.

Completely useless with the audio shut off feature

eligirl, JBL
20 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I was going crazy trying to figure out if I had fiddled with some setting on my computer, because the stupid speakers kept shutting off. Then I looked up these reviews and realize this is an intended feature?? It is the most ill conceived idea I've ever encountered. First of all they take up to 30 seconds to turn themselves on when you start playing anything. I'm an editor, so there are times you don't have audio going in and then the speakers shuts off.

Sound is great. Auto-off is terrible.

jjb15, JBL
15 January 2015
  • Excerpt: Love the quality of sound. The other reviewers aren't wrong -- the speakers definitely provide a nice depth to all audio. While they're on, I couldn't ask for anything more from a small, stylish set of desktop speakers. Unfortunately, the auto-off is terrible. Seriously, terrible. Speakers regularly shut off with little predictability. Sometimes it's 30 seconds into a song. Sometimes it's an hour into a movie. And then again 5 minutes later. Then again 20 minutes later.

Fantastic Sound and Convenience

Ironmike2014, JBL
12 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I bought these speakers based on the brand name JBL and I must admit, I am not disappointed one bit. I love music and the clarity in which these speaks produce sound is music to my ears. My android and PC are both connected via Bluetooth and to me, the convenience to play my music wireless is worth more than anything. I will be purchasing the wireless sound bar SB400 next based on my great experience.

Auto shut off!

  • Excerpt: The sound is great- if it would just stay on!! I've gone back to my ancient Logitech speakers from 2001. A shame- total waste of money.

Solid Build Aesthetically Appealing

Naturalist, B&H Photo
26 December 2014
  • Excerpt: When I initially opened the box I was perplexed as there are no written instructions, but after looking at the picture instructions, I realized how to set them up. There is no marking as to which speaker is the Right and which one is the Left. After calling India, twice as the first call was directed to an Indian who's English was poor and could not understand my question, I got someone who at least had a decent concept of the English language.
  • Pros: Aesthetically Appealing, Excellent Sounding, Solid
  • Cons: Soldered Connection Leads
