JBL Soundgear overview

  • 1Description

Wear your favorite tunes with the gray JBL Soundgear Speaker. This around-the-neck speaker includes a Bluetooth Audio (BTA) transmitter, which you can plug into your television for wireless transmission of your TV's audio to the Soundgear. aptX Low Latency technology helps keep the audio in sync with the picture. The BTA 20 transmitter has optical and 3.5mm ports to work with many televisions.

It connects to the BTA transmitter or your mobile device via Bluetooth and directs music toward your ears using four bass-boosted 31mm drivers putting out a total of 6W. Designed for all-day comfort, the Soundgear has a soft fabric cover for easy cleaning. Built-in buttons enable control of the volume and more.

Speakerphone functionality and dual echo-canceling microphones enable you to take calls; multipoint technology enables connection to two devices at once. The Soundgear lasts up to six hours on a charge and its battery can be replenished using the included USB cable. Users with Apple devices can see the battery level in the top-right corner of the screen.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Soundgear BTA I bought this for my husband for Christmas. He has a hearing problem. I like the concept where by he doesn't need to remove headphones in order to fully hear me. Unfortunately, it's not very comfortable against the back of your neck when lying on the couch (too hard). When walking around it can fall off if you have a small neck and you bend over and it's too tight if you have a large neck. The sound is okay, but needs to be adjusted when the commercials come on and it's not always easy to find the volume button quickly. Also, we noticed that when you operate the microwave oven or move too far away from the TV (like into the next room) the sound from the soundgear gets out of sync with the TV and then it sounds like there is an echo. The only way to correct this it seems is to turn off the soundgear and turn it back on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to I bought the Soundgear BTA specifically for playing games on PS4. It works like it should! Before the Soundgear, I bought a bluetooth transmitter and paired it with a competitor product very similar to Soundgear. That didn't really work out well due to the fact that I can not adjust the volume at all. Pros: Work as it should No issues with connection - easy to pair. No lag on videos Cons: If you have a wide neck (I don't) it's going to be hard to put the Soundgear because the opening is not wide enough and it doesn't give enough play. The main competitor of this product has the advantage on that. Would be nice if I can pair 2 Soundgear to the Bluetooth adapter so my wife and I can use each while watching TV. Neutral: Sound is good. Could be a little louder tho. (The competitor has advantage on that) Battery life can be longer. Overall: I am happy with the product, because my main use is for playing games and watching movies on my PS4.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Having trouble with the instructions! I can’t make it work, can’t understand the directions, is there a video I can watch? I have a new tv with Sonos, I have WiFi and BT, I don’t know whether to send it back or hire someone to set it up.... help! I’ll re-rate if I can get it to work :)
