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

 

At least in shape, the Pulse has a similar design to JBL's highly rated Flip and Charge Bluetooth speakers , but it's covered with a metal mesh grille that, when combined with the lights underneath, makes you think it's capable of killing mosquitoes...

The JBL Pulse is a compact wireless Bluetooth speaker that delivers good sound for its size and distinguishes itself with an integrated light show with preprogrammed and customizable themes. The built-in rechargeable battery offers 10 hours of battery...

It may not sound quite good as some $200 competitors, but the JBL Pulse's integrated light show adds a flashy new dimension to the listening experience that makes it a worthy contender in a crowded market.

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 - Tech2

 

The JBL Pulse has fun lighting effects to go with your music, but the audio quality is not as colourful given the high retail price

JBL Pulse review - PCQuest

 

This is another cylindrical shaped portable speaker from JBL, similar to its two previous models Flip and Charge. Flip was a big hit in 2012, which had unmatchable sound quality
