Harman Kardon Sabre SB35 review

 

If you don't own a Harman Kardon device you may be surprised that you've probably already heard the company's speakers before. Why? Because its responsible for most of the nation's cinema sound systems. And with the HK Sabre it plans to bring that...

Fantastic sound quality, beautiful design, slim, simple to use

Rather pricey for a 2.1 solution, cut-out issue irks, glitchy software

The Harman Kardon Sabre is a really beautiful soundbar and subwoofer combination. One enhances the other wherever they are placed in the room, in both aesthetic and acoustic terms. The ability to balance the bass to suit the room via manual adjustments...

Harman Kardon Sabre SB 35 review

 

Harman Kardon's Sabre SB35 offers an extremely low-profile design and a gorgeous form factor, but unfortunately, its beauty is mostly skin deep.

Harmon Kardon’s Sabre SB35 offers an extremely low-profile design and a gorgeous form factor, but unfortunately, its beauty is mostly skin deep. While it had its moments during our evaluation, and certainly offers a vast improvement over a flat screen...

Harman Kardon Sabre SB 35

 

The Harman Kardon Sabre SB 35 is a $1,000 soundbar speaker that clearly looks like it's worth a grand, but it sure doesn't sound like it.

Slim, striking design. Useful features like Bluetooth and HDMI. Nice remote.

Expensive. Uneven bass response. Speaker drivers bottom out at higher volumes on deep bass content. Extremely bright treble. HDMI requires micro HDMI cables or adapters.

Harman Kardon includes a surprisingly elegant remote control with the SB 35. Most soundbar membrane remotes are bland, credit card-shaped devices with a few basic buttons. The SB 35's remote is a 5.4-inch-long, aluminum-backed controller that brings...

A beast of a soundsystem that's truly cinematic

 

"As an audio device, the Harman Kardon SABRE SB35 is a great piece of kit. The bar itself packs four built-in speakers that boast 100 watts of audio power, and has a number of inbuilt audio options to help you fine-tune the system for your room. For...

Deep bass; Good build quality; Looks good; Rich sound

Poor instruction manual

Harman Kardon SABRE SB35 Bluetooth Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer

 

"I had previously owned a 5.1 surround sound system and when I decided to change I was recommended to get a soundbar. I did a little research and found that Harman/Kardon speakers are the very best option. I was really impressed that they create...

Ease to use; Good build quality; Looks good; Sounds Fantastic; Value for money

Poor Quality Remote Control

Consumer review by: Clyde (bestbuy.com)

Just okay

 

I really liked that the HK was thin and didn't take up a lot of space. The sound was a little thin too. But it was a simple set up and did sound better than the tv speakers. I only had the system for four days, set it up, sounded okay, decided to mount...
