Overview

Our take on the JBL Horizon

The JBL Horizon can wake you in the morning and recharge your portables overnight. Its large display is easily readable, and can be dimmed to help you sleep. And it's also a Bluetooth speaker that delivers JBL's signature rich sound.

The JBL Horizon can wake you in the morning and recharge your portables overnight. Its large display is easily readable, and can be dimmed to help you sleep. And it's also a Bluetooth speaker that delivers JBL's signature rich sound.

JBL Horizon Bluetooth

Ambient LED lights gradually brighten to slowly wake you.

Made for portables

The Horizon features two USB charging ports, so you can connect your smartphone and tablet (or two smartphones) for recharging. You can easily pair your Bluetooth-enabled portable to the Horizon for instant music. The two full-range speakers can deliver detailed sound that can fill a room.

Clock and radio

In addition to streaming music from your device, you can also enjoy the Horizon's built-in FM tuner. The Horizon comes with two alarms, both of which can be independently set to an FM radio station, music streamed from your paired smartphone or tablet, or even an electronic alarm.

The LCD clock display is easy to read, and automatically adjusts to the room's lighting. Ambient LED light, activated by the alarm, helps you wake up gently. The Horizon's smooth, rounded contour and soft, rubberized finish comes in handy when you're half asleep and groping for the alarm.

You'll be able to wireless stream stored music and music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computer, and more to the JBL Horizon. You also get basic playback control, like Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track, from the Horizon. Advanced music navigation and song/artist information will still be done from your Bluetooth-enabled device.

  • Dual Alarms: The JBL Horizon offers dual independent alarms for you and your partner. You get the choice to wake up to the built-in FM radio, built-in alarm tones, or music streamed from your Bluetooth device. You can set each alarm to sound everyday, only through the weekdays, only on the weekends, or only for one day.
  • Ambient Lighting: Along with the alarm, integrated LED ambient lighting gradually brightens to help wake you up gently. This feature can be turned On or Off.

Features. Love this clock and has fantastic sound quality [ Matthew  Dec 24, 2016 ]
I really just need an alarm clock. Hopefully this is better than the some of the not so good reviews. I was going to spend a lot more on the $350 Bose system, but since all the controls are managed through a remote control I decided against it... I don't need a $350 paperweight should the remote get misplaced... [ ANTHONY J  Apr 26, 2016 ]
