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.
FAQs & How-Tos
Yes, if a telephone is connected via Bluetooth to Horizon, this is possible. When adjusting the wake-up timer, there will be an option to select various wake-up tones, or Bluetooth sound. Select Bluetooth as source, while the telephone is playing the music stored locally, or streaming what you want as wake-up music. When the wake-up adjustment is finished, music will be playing over Bluetooth through the Horizon. Press Pause on the source telephone, or press the round selector button (between the two arrow-buttons) on the Horizon to pause the music. Now the system is ready to wake you up with Bluetooth music. When wake-up time arrives, Horizon sends a Play command to the telephone, and music plays via Bluetooth. You can use music that is stored in the phone, use Spotify or play from the cloud. This has been tested with both iPhone 6 and Samsung S6, and should work flawlessly.Was this helpful? Thank you for your feedback!
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. The light shuts off with the audio.Was this helpful? Thank you for your feedback!
The owner's manual can be a bit difficult to understand. Here is what to do to program a preset station that has not already been saved in any preset: 1 Turn on the radio by clicking the FM button. 2 Find the station you want to save by doing what is shown under pt. 8 B or C, either clicking or pressing/holding for more than 2 seconds the left/right arrow buttons. 3 Press and hold the FM button for more than 2 seconds. Now the preset number appears blinking. 4 Click on the left/right arrow buttons to skip through the preset positions. 5 When you have located the desired memory preset position, such as Preset 4, confirm by clicking the FM button. Now the desired FM station is saved in memory preset 4. If you have already saved an FM station in a preset memory position, and want to have a new station placed there instead, here is what to do: 1 Turn on the radio by clicking the FM button. 2 Jump to the preset station you want to change with the round central button. Each click advances to the next preset. 3 When you are on the preset you want to change, e.g. preset 4, press and hold the FM button for more than 2 seconds. 4 The FM symbol and the frequency will now blink. 5 Before they stop blinking, click, or press and hold one of the arrow buttons to go through the FM frequencies step by step, or perform station search. 6 When you have found the new station you want to save in preset 4, click the round central button. 7 Now the new station is saved in preset 4.Was this helpful?
