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.

Product Q&A

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
It is frustrating that the manufacturer seems to be doing nothing about it, although so many customers complain. Technically it can't be that difficult, can it? The Horizon would be a wonderful product if the alarm volume could be preset. As it is now, it is a nice looking but completely useless device for me.

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!

My horizon has software 026 and still has the annoying increasing volume. What can I do?

Asked by: Dennos2410
I just dealt with this. The fix that put through was that the volume good too Max slower. The customer still can't control the volume. Unreal!

I am not clear on how to turn the alarm off.  I've tried every button, and end up first having to choose snooze, then radio, then off.  There must be an easier way to turn the alarm off in the morning.  This is very frustrating.

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.

I just bought JBL Horizon and tested it. The volume increases much too high during Alarm... Did you fix that issue ?

Asked by: sandoran
You can set the volume, it just DOES NOT use it. Really reallly dumb.

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
If you don't turn off the alarm, Horizon's alarm sounds for 3 minutes, then it shuts off, or rather it goes into snooze, for 9 minutes. Then it sounds the alarm again for 3 minutes, followed by snooze for another 9 minutes. After this final snooze period, it starts playing, and keeps on playing until it is manually shut off.
