It's important to critique this soundbar based on its price level. I wouldn't compare it to 5.1/7.2 surround sound systems that cost much more.
This soundbar exceeded my expectation. Easy to setup. It automatically found the sub. Very clear sound albeit a little thin. Great clarity in dialogue. Sufficient base but placement of the sub is important. Perfect for a small room(16sqm). Pick the larger models if your room is larger. I would definitely recommend this soundbar.
As usual, excellent service from Takealot.

First Soundbar ever. Easy to setup and overall good sound quality, considering this is a "entry level" unit by JBL. Bass is a bit flat but not too bad at all.
Sleek finish, cannot fault this unit.

Sounds awesome! a pity it doesn't have just a bit more oomph. Then again it is JBL's entry level system. Very happy

Only negative is the bass is not as loud and pronounced as I expected !!! AGREE, but in all a great buy for the price, if you want bass buy the SB250, I bought both SB150 and SB250, the SB250 is in a different league(and PRICE).The SB150 is definitely a very nice upgrade to the standard TV speakers by far.

I have always considered JBL products to be superior. This product, for it's price lives up to the expectation. Clean well separated bass. Crisp and clear high and mid tones. One thing that could be better is perhaps a choice of an equalizer that can be set rather than just the three options, movie, music and news. I also find at higher volumes the bass suffers a little - it gets lost in the room. This may just be the particular environment. The wireless sub is a huge benefit - putting the unit anywhere in a room helps with smaller homes. A great product for every day cinema and audio.

Good value for money, small and compact. easy to connect

Easy installation, great â€˜JBLâ€™ sound, ease of use & off-course Takealotâ€™s excellent service!!!

Unfortunately my subwoofer stopped working on my first purchase, but it was quickly replaced. No problems thus far, sounds great!
Kiran, South Africa. 22 November 2016
Awesome product... very good clarity of sound!
Vimal, South Africa. 21 November 2016
Great sound quality for the price,
a little disappointing that the remote control is so small and flimsy, it seems like it can easily get lost.

Great little system that is easy to install and requires NO WIRES (which was my #1 reason for purchase). You do need power to both the sounder and sub. Easy to bluetooth pair with AppleTV or other mobile devices. Also has optical in/output.
Sound is good overall, easily fills a room of 6m x4m. Three sound settings - Cinema gives you phase-shifted "wide" audio, whereas Music presents a more focussed source of the sound. You won't get real stereo separation though, but very few sound bars will give you that.
No real negatives here - it comes with mounting brackets that allow you to fix it to the wall, or it will simply stand on its own rubber feet.

Sound quality is fantastic as you'd expect from JBL, and setup was an absolute breeze. It looks great too. The bluetooth range seems disappointingly limited though (only about 5m range before it starts breaking up). By comparison, my JBL bluetooth headphones are good up to about 15-20m.

For a basic Soundbar, this is good value for money.
David, South Africa. 14 December 2016
Great sound overall and easy to setup. The subwoofer is disappointing with very limited output when connected to bluetooth device.
JOF, South Africa. 20 October 2016
excellent value for money packs a punch

This is my first sound bar. I decided to ditch my aging 5.1 system and opt for one of these instead as I have trusted JBL products in the past. After reading some reviews reporting that the sound is thin and the bass is lacking I was a bit sceptical but happy to be proven wrong once I'd gotten the bar set up in the lounge. Sound quality was a major upgrade for me and what I've been previously used to, and the array or connection options is perfect for my uses. It has Bluetooth, optical (which I use to get audio from my non smart TV) as well as aux in.
Lucas, South Africa. 17 November 2016
What a great way to get rid of cable clutter, I replaced my Logitech 5.1 with the JBL sound bar and I'm very happy with it. I won't lie, I was worried that the JBL won't keep up with my Z5500 but I was pleasantly surprised. The setup takes no time at all and the JBL sound quality is fantastic. If you're looking to replace your old sound system but you don't want to break the bank, the JBL 2.1 is a no brainer!
Eben, South Africa. 7 December 2016
Excellent sound quality, works as advertised. Bluetooth connection of the woofer is a bit tricky: it would be useful to have some confirmation that the connection is in operation. User manual is very cryptic at best. Seems written by non English speakers.
Asif, South Africa. 30 November 2016
Not a bad product, not a great one either.
has made a significant difference to normal audio and looks slick, ideal for a small living area/ bedroom.
Delivers cinematic sound less the rumble,,,
Derek, South Africa. 23 January 2017
Easy setup. Functionality and operation is fantastic. The only concern is that the Bass is quite weak.
Isaai, South Africa. 19 October 2017
Enjoying this beast, everything is just better with it sound wise
Shane, South Africa. 20 November 2016
Well worth it for the price. Only negative is the bass is not as loud and pronounced as I expected, but in all a great buy for the price.
fanie, South Africa. 30 November 2016
So far...so great. Sound is crystal clear.

This sound bar is not worth the hype ,massively disappointed it doesn't have a display screen and the remote is really awful it's tiny and extremely, fragile lesson learnt you get what you pay for .
haroon , South Africa. 18 January 2017
Very unhappy. . Unit has a slight ding on the top corner
The sub switches off continuously. . And when I get it to power up
It takes between 5 and 10 tries.. I have the jbl system for a week
Now.. I have already submitted a report and complaint that I am unhappy
And would like to return the item for a credit to purchase something else.
It was very disappointing and so frustrating to keep trying to switch it on..
