JBL Horizon Bluetooth Clock Radio with Ambient Light: Contest and Giveaway

JBL Horizon: ambient light

I love gadgets that are multi-purpose, space saving and aesthetically pleasing. Meet the JBL Horizon, which combines five functions in one! It's a Bluetooth speaker for your digital devices, an FM radio, an alarm clock, a high-speed USB charger, and a beautiful ambient light, all rolled into one.

JBL ( kindly gave me a set to review, and another set to give away on the blog! More on that later.

Take a look at the features in this video. It's so easy to use. Nice that they have the giant snooze button (which also turns on the light).

JBL Horizon: what's in the box
Here's what comes in the box: The JBL Horizon comes with various plugs for its power adaptor, so you can even take it along with you to some countries if you so wish. It's quite portable but does weigh about 890g. There's an antenna wire too, but I hardly needed it to get good reception when I placed it near the window.

I really like it in my room. The cute round speaker fills the room beautifully with lush bass. The clock display is large and readable on the cool reflective surface. It also gives off just the right amount of light as a night light. Five preset stations may seem limited, but it's easy to jump around. And really, I'm mostly at the classical music station or the foreign language one.

There are two alarm settings, and the digital alarm tones are such a pleasant sound and a gentle way to wake up. You could also choose to wake up to your favourite song streamed via Bluetooth, or the radio.

JBL Horizon: USB ports for charging devices

If you are like me, you probably cuddle up in bed with your smartphone or tablet (unless you are lucky enough to have Hugh Jackman or Sofia Vergara next to you). So the dual USB ports on the JBL clock radio make it a really handy bedside charger.

With USB charging, you can stream music, podcasts, audiobooks or your favourite playlists from your devices without worrying about draining battery life. They've really thought of everything.

This is easily a device you will look forward to using every day. Might make a good gift too - add music and light into someone's life!
