JBL Pulse

 

The JBL Pulse is a good-sounding, good-looking Bluetooth speaker that displays a customizable light show to go with your music.

Mesmerizing light show. Impressive volume. Good general sound quality

Weak, shallow bass response

Bluetooth speakers can look cool, but they usually don't look very engaging. Even if a speaker's chassis is aluminum, or colorful, or angular, it's still just a motionless object that puts out sound. JBL plays with that concept with the Pulse, a...

JBL Pulse Bluetooth Speaker: Review

 

The JBL Pulse will mesmerize you as it fills the room with its booming sound and bright colors. This is hands down the most fun we have had in a long time with a Bluetooth speaker. We were disappointed that there was no included carrying case; since...

Ingenious design that will intrigue everyone. Loud booming sound that fills the room. Very portable. Great app integration. The most fun you’ll ever have with a Bluetooth speaker.

No carrying case. Some songs might experience some very light distortion.

JBL Pulse: Fancy lighting effects don’t make up for average sound quality

 

Bluetooth speakers make the perfect companion for that weekend getaway and of late, we've seen a flurry of new models sporting NFC compatibility. We've already reviewed a bunch of them, right from the Creative Airwave HD to the Jabra Solemate mini....

At a price tag of Rs 14,990, the JBL Pulse feels quite expensive for what is essentially a pretty average sounding Bluetooth speaker with some lights. Features like a built-in microphone and the ability to pair multiple devices are also missing. It...

JBL Pulse

 

The JBL Pulse is a good-sounding, good-looking Bluetooth speaker that displays a customizable light show to go with your music.

The Pulse gets surprisingly loud for its large-beer-can-shape, though it suffers in the low end. It brought out impressive midrange and low-mid detail, such as in the thumpy guitar of The Offspring’s “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid,” and the mix of...
