What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from meh sound quality is decent. at least until you play a game with a lot of noise like engine noise in forza... then its starts too buzz and rattle. the remote refuses too control my LG TV. and the TV remote wont control the bar. oh, and the sub-woofer started to make a repeating BOOF noise for a few min before i finally figured out what the noise was coming from, and realized it was smoking out the hole in the front like a Cheech and Chong re-run... so no thanks, wont be buying it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from misleading information on wirless connection Need to improve product design for improved ease of use when the TV is wall mounted. All the connections are impossible to reach unless the TV is removed from the wall. The cable attachment need to be recessed more so as not to crimp the cable and to allow ease of access. The wireless sound bar is NOT. Tried to connect LG TV and LG sound bar via wireless connection and can't without a dongle. LG forgot to mention that fact in both the TV and sound bar info. Oops. Really? TV pic quality and sound bar quality are good but not that much better than other brands. All brands could distinguish their products by improving ease of use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Having trouble with the wireless subwoofer We have had this sound bar for about a year and have not had a problem until recently. There seems to be an issue with the wireless subwoofer. There is a loud rumbling/distortion sound coming from the subwoofer and the actual audio is barely noticeable over it. The noise is present when connected to the Portable connection and the optical input. I originally had the sound bar connected to the TOSLINK on our LG TV. I tried connecting directly to our cable box and our blu ray player and found the noise was still there. Has anyone else had a similar issue? I was researching replacing the wireless adapter card in the subwoofer, but I'm not sure yet if this is the failure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sound Bar does not work after 18 months We purchased this sound bar system in February 2014. We opted for LG based on positive reviews and with the thought that it would be most compatible with our LG smart TV. This past week, after only 18 months of use, the sound bar no longer turns on. We have tried multiple outlets and cannot power up the sound bar. The sound bar was plugged into the same surge protector power strip that powers the rest of our electronics and they are all fully functional. We are very disappointed with the quality of this product and will not purchase another LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great sound at a great price This product gives great sound for a great price. As a movie watcher sound is everything and this sound bar delivers. Many options for sound and connections and it fits just right with it's size for most flat screen TV's.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Subwoofer Doesn't Connect to Sound Bar Bought this sound bar system. The bluetooth subwoofer worked great and was very convenient, with great sound quality; however, I went on deployment for a few months, 3 to be exact, only to come back and find out that the subwoofer was no longer paired with the sound bar. I know, "First World Problems," but if it was free I wouldn't be complaining, However, I did pay some good money for this.

Bluetooth stopped working

Asked by: katie14
If the Bluetooth on your LG Sound Bar Audio System with Bluetooth Connectivity, Model # NB3530A stopped working, it may be due to one or two things. Either your unit lost connection and needs to be paired again with the device that you are streaming the audio from or that the device you're streaming from suffered interference and lost its signal. Either way, you can try to troubleshoot the problem. Try to see if the Sound Bar can receive audio from another Bluetooth device, or see if your device can stream to another Bluetooth device. It may just be that you need to pair the units again which you should try before trying anything else...^IFV

Bluetooth stops working eventually?

The soundbar's Bluetooth function no longer works. It was working perfectly until today. I searched the Q & A on here and apparently a few others have had the exact same problem as me: When we switch to the BT function mode, the display shows "BT READY", only "BT." This seems to be a critical problem with this model. The speaker becomes basically useless for me if the Bluetooth doesn't work. I wrote a favorable review about this item on because of the great performance/cost ratio - 300W speakers! But I might have to change this now...I have had these soundbar for less than a year.
Asked by: Raiden
Mine developed the same problem after a couple of months. Call customer service, They had me return mine for service and had it back to me in less than a week.
