JBL Cinema SB250: Superb Surround Sound in a Sleek Design

New soundbar and wireless subwoofer provides stunning home theater audio for any TV

STAMFORD, Conn.--HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (NYSE:HAR), the premier connected technologies company for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, today introduced its new JBL Cinema SB250 soundbar and wireless subwoofer system. The Bluetooth-enabled home audio system packs 200 watts of home theater sound and amplifies the viewing experience for any TV, right out of the box.


The JBL Cinema SB250 gives viewers a fully immersive, big-movie experience through its Dolby Digital and Harman virtual surround sound. Boasting a sleek, compact design, the SB250's separate subwoofer wirelessly connects to the soundbar, and smartly complements any wall mounted or table stand TV installation. The soundbar connects easily using a single optical or analog cable connection, allowing viewers to watch their favorite shows or movies, with cinema quality sound, in minutes.

The SB250 also streams music from smartphones or tablets using Bluetooth, and can recall up to 10 different Bluetooth-enabled devices. To enhance viewing and listening pleasure, JBL Cinema SB250 features Harman Volume, which keeps quick volume changes from disrupting the experience — no more suddenly loud commercials — and the system can learn any TV remote volume control, giving simplified control over the entire experience.

For TV viewers who keep a smartphone or tablet nearby to enjoy the second screen experience, the JBL Cinema SB250 allows users to automatically switch audio playback from a TV to a smart device and back - seamlessly. Rather than dealing with the competing sounds of a TV and smartphone, or needing to turn the TV volume down when checking out an online video clip, JBL SoundShift technology instantly swaps audio sources for the ultimate second screen experience.

"The JBL Cinema SB250 instantly enhances that at-home TV viewing experience through superior sound that makes you feel like part of the action," said Michael Mauser, president, Lifestyle Audio Division, HARMAN. "For shoppers looking for theatre quality sound at an affordable price, the SB250 is the ideal solution."

Pricing and Availability

The JBL Cinema SB250 Soundbar and Wireless Subwoofer will be available in October 2015 (MSRP $299.95). For more information visit www.JBL.com.
