    JBL Studio 280 reviews

    Studio 280 3-Way Dual 6.5" Floorstanding Speaker (Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, Good quality first of all i want to talk about the size, they are big speakers if you have a very small room they will not fit proper and if it was me i was not going to use them in bedroom. my living room is 8 by 8 meters and they fit in this area very well. built quality is very good and they seem very durable their appearance is somehow classic and​ piano looking, from the first look they show that they are high end products. if I go to the sound i have to say that they are AMAZING. as JBL says hear the truth they really work in that way. before i go for them I heard Klipsch, KEF and monitor studio speakers but i was looking for pure sound so i choose them. if you are looking for a set of speakers with detailed and powerful sound they are great choice. I use Denon AVR x520 BT receiver with them and they sound great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely good speakers With a good receiver, these speakers would rival any speakers 10 times it price. My experience was pure and utter amazement. If you could demo it, do give it a try

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good speaker I like the speakers. I had bought it to play with Marantz PM 8005 and cd 6005. It sounds good. But I am being told by your dealers that these are not the musical speakers that you have bought , it is to be played in a home theatre system. I should have looked at some other option. Is that true?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent way to enter the world of hi-fi These speakers were my first proper speakers that I paid for in the excess of 100$. I have had terrible, ok, and not too bad speakers before, but these felt like I had gotten something really premium back then. Today I have various speakers that cost as much as the 280's together or even more, yet I still consider them excellent value for money. There are obviously better speakers in the world, but they will cost you a lot more, there is very little competition for the 280 at it's price in my opinion. There certainly are more expensive speakers that don't perform nearly as well too. Music, movies or games, none leave me wanting something else. They are great and I don't see any faults in them, kind of wish there was on option to pay twice the money and get the same speakers with better quality components in them to upgrade my Studio 280 main speakers. They have a slight emphasis on the mid frequencies and things like that ultimately boil down to personal preferances though. Because of that emphasis, I also recommend you get a subwoofer for the sake of balance and then you should be all set and ready to rock! The top of the speakers likes to gather dust because of it's glossy surface which is easily scratched, which is the only negative I can think of. Instead of that glossy material, that money could have been spent on something else in the speaker. Again, personal preferances though, nothing fundamental. Great speakers overall, I recommend them with a subwoofer if possible for people who want to jump into the world of hifi. They really benefit from a subwoofer though, not because of some issues with lower frequencies but because their strength lies in the mid frequency in my opinion and by using a subwoofer you can really reinforce this strong point and get a well balanced system no matter if it's stereo or surround. At this price point, you want a speaker that specializes in something instead of a jack-of-all-trades to build a good sounding system and the Studio 280 is a true mid range specialist that can hold it's own alone but also plays well with others.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not up to expectations My system is all JBL and I was hoping for an upgrade left and rights with 3 way speakers. My center channel is the Studio 235c and sounds fantastic. The 280's did not come close to matching the 235c. Midband on the 280's was way too intense. The 280's were returned. If you like a blazing mid band, these might be for you, but didn't work out for me.
