Also, you will find two keys at the bottom, that are responsible for setting the time.

Connectors located just two USB, which can be used to charge mobile phones and other gadgets.
Display is clear even to a remote distance in the room, with a nice blue tint. JBL Horizon is available in two colors: black and white.

Management and use

The control buttons are located on top. A little disappointed lack of recent lighting, sometimes had to search for them by touch. SNOOZE / LIGHT  large button for a quick turn off the alarm and control lamp. Placed parallel to the embossed navigation buttons, rewind and confirm. No small button marked with Bluetooth, with which you can switch to playback audio from your mobile device.

  • Audio jack 3.5 mm (AUX-IN);
  • FM-radio (5 stations can be stored in memory);
  • Bluetooth (with any compatible device).

Sound quality

I would like to work under the sound of JBL Horizon include audio or a fairy tale for the baby, but no more.


jbl-horizon-box-reviewAverage sound quality is compensated by the presence of options, such as alarm clock, lamp, FM-radio, two USB connector to charge external devices can connect your mobile device through the audio and music streaming via Bluetooth.I would have bought this unit because of a combination of functionality. It so happened that recently even been searching for such a device.
