Start your day with the room-filling JBL stereo sound

The JBL Horizon clock radio starts your day with room-filling JBL stereo sound, enriched with the multi-sensory ambient glow of LED lights. The Horizon features two separate customizable alarms, for you or your partner. Wake up to one of three original digital alarm tones, the FM station of your choice, music from your smart phone via Bluetooth or a traditional buzzer. It offers five programmable FM radio presets, and can also stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth phone or tablet. The Horizon features a compact design suitable for placement on any nightstand or kitchen shelf. The crisp LCD clock display has a built-in light sensor to automatically adjust the brightness according to the environment. Two USB ports can fast-charge your devices, including phones, tablets and wearables. The large Snooze/Light button combined with the clear LCD display makes JBL Horizon easy to use even when you are drowsy, and the built in battery backup system ensures you will always wake up, even during a power outage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ideas on how to make it perfect first of all the design is just awsome but I've got a few ideas that would make the JBL Horizon the Perfect Alarm Clock ever and its to add a few features which are : 1- making the center screen Swivel so that it would give me the choice of listening to music when the speaker is towards me and also whenever I like to use it as alarm making the light and the screen facing me, all I have to do is to swivel the center screen, this would make it much cooler in my opinion 2- upgrade the the USB ports to 1.5 amp & another one 2.0 amp for tablets for much faster charging and maybe adding usb c Port. 3- adding temperature & Humidity Sensor this is such great feature to add. 4- making the back of the center screen a passive radiator and upgrade a bit powerful speakers. 5- last but least maybe adding laser projector that project the time on the wall. hope that you put this in consideration and feed me back what you think.

Hi, I wake up every morning with radio alarm, but I cannot set it at a certain volume. The radio starts at a low volume and a few seconds after gets louder and louder. I can´t stand it and I have to turn it off. It´s not a gently wake up at all.

Asked by: Matias
Unfortunately it does not have any settings to change the volume level on an alarm. It was designed in a way that once the alarm goes off, the volume gradually gets louder to wake up the user.

Will you have a fix allowing to control the FM radio volume in alarm mode? I have SW version 26 and the Bluetooth alternative is not suitable for me. I like the device quality, but this issue makes it so unusable I'm thinking of returning it. Thank you.

Asked by: ChrisD
Me too. I don't like being blown out of my bed with sound, i just like to listen to the radio. So after the radio alarm starts, i need to turn alarm off, then lights on and radio back on. It is quite a hussle to find the right button if you are not awake and its dark. I have software version 026.

I can't read the LED display unless I flash my cellphone light directly at the light sensor. Can it really be true that I can't manually adjust this?

Asked by: JacobHartvig
Same problem here, it is not visible in most lighting conditions, the only solution is to place another lamp close to the device so that the dim function is forced to enhance the display level. Strange R&D!

Hi In the morning with the alarm set to wake you up on the radio setting, the volume gets way to loud too quickly! I checked my software version and it is version 22. Is there a way to update this software?  Many thanks 

Asked by: Greg willow
No, this hasn't been corrected at all. Even the latest OS is way too loud after 30 seconds. It still builds up to almost maximum volume waking up the whole household. There should be a default maximum wake up volume in the settings to make this a user friendly device. Using this as an alarm clock really ruins my day from the first seconds in the morning.

I use device as a wake-to-music alarm clock. Is there any wait to set it so that the radio goes off on its own after a given time? Otherwise I find it blaring away when I return home after a few days away.

Asked by: misterstew
Yes, press the Sleep button and it sets itself to shut off in 5 minutes. Each additional press of the Sleep button pushes the shut off time back in 15 minute intervals until it gets to 90 minutes. One more press sets it to OFF.

Hi JBL, I just bought my JBL horizon. I wish to set my favorite FM but it always goes back to first channel. How do I set my favorite FM radio? Thank you 

Asked by: July
To set your favorite FM radio on the HORIZON, press and hold the FM radio button for 2 seconds until the radio station indicator will light up. Tune the radio to the station you want, and then press the middle button to store the station. To set presets, same procedure as before but the preset (P1-P5) should light up this time. If the issue persists, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/support-product.html and our Customer Service team will be glad to assist you.

Hello great product, very good sound, but increasing radio alarm to 11 is really anoying and tooooo loud. Please make realy fast update that radio alarm is fix, if I set alarm radio on level 4, alarm should increase from 1 to 4. If not I turn back clock.

Asked by: viljemc
I went to BigBang but no solution. They said that they wait your SW update. So update should be, when alarm is set to radio no volume increasing & after 1 or 2 hour radio should off automatically. Could you make update very fast, otherwise this product is not for me, I'll return soon, and I think other customers also. Not fine for so great product.

Hallo! I have mini ipad 3. Is it true that fast charger (in jbl horizon) is only for iphone, not ipad? I mean, i understood that the charger will not charge my ipad fast , is it true? Thanks, sasa.

Asked by: Sarit
Hi Sasa, Actually you can charge everything, the point is that the USBs output 5v, 1A, usually this is enough for Mobile phones, but iPad might use more power input.
