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.

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


Bluetooth speakers are a dime a dozen these days. Seriously, EVERYONE is making a Bluetooth speaker of some sort. So it really takes a lot to stand-out in the crowd and JBL has accomplished this feat with the JBL Pulse. In the Box JBL Pulse 1 USB...

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

I got the beats pill for Christmas, and found that it was a piece of overpriced plastic. It didn't work well at all. Couldn't play at high volume without distortion, very bad bass cracking let alone a good bass in general. I returned it to where my...

Not as good as expected


So I purchased this $200 speaker for my wife for Christmas. She saw it in Best Buy one day and fell in love with it, so I figured I'd get it for her. The Bluetooth works great!! However this is nothing more than a $40 speaker (at best) with a $160...

Nothing Really

Sound and Price

Excellent Volume, Lights, and Clarity


As a person who has worked with the demos of the JBL and Jambox brands, as well as others such as Logitech, Bose, and HMDX, I can verify that for the money this is the best speaker for the price if you are lucky enough to find out about it.My...

Volume, Clarity, Bass, Price, and an Epic Lightshow

Battery Life, Limited customization options on JBL Musicflow App, lack of carry sleeve
