It’s time to find your fancy TV’s perfect match for audio. Sound specialists JBL have launched a new range of soundbars for every budget! The Bar2.1DB_MKII, Bar500, Bar800 and Bar1000 have been launched in India today, ranging from ₹34,999 to ₹1,29,999. Although the pricing starts from a digestible chunk, the naming can confuse a generation of audiophiles.
First up is the JBL Bar2.1 Deep Bass which brings compact size and 300 Watts of sound. The Bar can be connected to a TV with a single optical or HDMI cable, and it can also stream music from a phone or tablet via Bluetooth. There’s support for Dolby Digital and JBL Surround Sound for movies, sports and music. Bar2.1 is intended to improve the immersive sound experience for TV without the use of additional wires or speakers. The sound bar includes a wireless down-firing subwoofer as well as eARC HDMI. JBL Bar2.1 includes DB MKII: 2.1 channel.
The JBL Bar500 brings a max power output of 590W with MultiBeam technology from JBL. This enables you to have a cinematic experience in the comfort of your home and Dolby Atmos 3D surround sound. The wireless 10-inch subwoofer delivers bass and the PureVoice technology enhances voice clarity.
The JBL Bar800 with Dolby Atmos features two up-firing drivers, entirely wireless detachable battery-powered rear surround speakers and 720W of total output power to produce an immersive 3D cinema experience without the need for additional cords. With both the JBL Bar500 and JBL Bar800, you can use Airplay2, Alexa, MRM, Chromecast built-in, and over 300 online music streaming services.
Lastly, the 10in wireless down-firing subwoofer in the JBL Bar1000 produces booming bass with a total output power of 880W. With its MultiBeam technology and four up-firing drivers — two in the bar and two in the detachable battery-powered surround speakers—the JBL Bar1000 surrounds the listener in Dolby Atmos and DTS:X 3D surround sound with a wide, open soundstage without the use of additional connections.
