The JBL Horizon Alarm Clock ReviewThe JBL Horizon is the latest multifunctional alarm clock to feature the ambient wake up light. For those of you that are unsure if a wake up light will actually work, this is only stage one of the waking up process.  A Wake up light will help to guide you gently out of a deep sleep and into a semi-conscious state that is far less painful to emerge from when the time finally comes to drag yourself back into the real world.

The JBL Horizon - Wake Up Light Alarm Clock

Along with the increasingly popular wake up light feature, the JBL Horizon also offers the following features:

  • Independent Alarms  – The JBL Horizon alarm clock has the option to set 2 separate alarm times, should your partner need to get up earlier or later than you.
  • JBL Stereo Sound – For those of you who are unfamiliar with JBL’s pedigree with speaker technology, they actually produce some of the finest portable bluetooth speakers available with an extremely high quality of sound
  • Bluetooth Streaming – Make use of the quality JBL speakers by bluetooth streaming your music from your phone, tablet of laptop.
  • FM Radio –  While most radio alarm clocks will sound rather tinny and flat, the JBL stereo speakers will make the radio a joy to listen to.
  • USB Charging – The JBL Horizon has 2 built in USB charging ports making it ideal to recharge your phones over night without the need to additional plug sockets.

The JBL Horizon alarm clock has a compact well designed rounded shape, which has proved very popular with other Wake up lights such as the Philips sunrise alarm clock.  I’m guessing it’s because we are programmed to respond better to a naturally rounded light rather than a square design.  The body of the alarm clock has a soft rubberised finish that is nice to the touch and works well to ground the clock onto the surface of the table.

  1. Yes – When I wake from deep slumber I often pause, before surfacing, to contemplate the shape of the light source.

  2. There is a lot of things to like about the JBL Hozion wake up light:
    1. It has bluetooth, which the Philips wake up lights don’t
    2. It’s USB charging ports are fast charging for phones, which is not often the case.
    3. It’s a space saver, as you are effectively combining a bed side lamp, a bluetooth speaker and an alarm clock

    BUT, I’m not overly impressed with the FM radio the antenna doesn’t seem to perform well enough, it also lacks a bit of bass when compared to my Bose SoundLink.

    • Hi Richard,

      Thanks for your comment, my radio signal doesn’t seem too bad, I guess it depends largely on the area though. The bass could be a little fuller, but if you are comparing it to a Bose Soundlink, that may be a little unfair, as the Soundlink is a pretty high end bluetooth speaker.
