A unique design that inspires your party spirit when you rock to tunes and have a visual experience to go along with it. Here is a complete JBL Pulse wireless Bluetooth speaker review:
Design and Features:
The JBL Pulse is a can shaped speaker. The speaker has a dimension of 7.9 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches and a weight of only 1.1 pounds. The speaker can be placed vertically and horizontally. The primary controls are on the top of the speaker, i.e., volume, Bluetooth pairing, light and power buttons. Additionally the there is the light button which presets up to 5 different light effect shows. The speaker has a rubber bottom so the speaker can be placed flat.

The JBL Pulse is a quality built a speaker. The speaker feels excellent in hand. Wrapped with a metal grille which makes the colors pop out and look pixelated. The top and bottom are a mix of rubber plastic and regular plastic. When you turn on the speaker, there is light show waiting for you. The Pulse only comes in a black color. The speaker runs on Bluetooth 2.0 technology with NFC so you can use it with any Bluetooth smart device. The battery life runs for about 10 hours which is pretty high considering the amount of tech this speaker has going on.
JBL has also introduced an app called JBL music flow for IOS and JBL Music for Android. In this app you can create your preset color themes for your pulse and play around with various effects which we found is the easiest way to customize the color options to your preference.
JBL Pulse Bluetooth Speaker Review – Sound Quality:
The JBL Pulse produces best quality sound from two 40mm drivers, and a customer tuned bass port to provide loud and punchy sound.
The Sound from the JBL was Loud and powerful and also very balanced. At some of the highest volume levels, there was a bit of distortion especially when you play hard rock or even a classical orchestration of some sort you can hear a bit of fuzz. The Bose SoundLink Mini for example has some better clarity when it comes to the upper registers and can handle the top volume. The JBL Pulse is powerful enough to fill a small to medium room.
The JBL Pulse is a unique addition to the Bluetooth speaker market providing a solid audio experience and also providing a quality visual experience which is a first in the Bluetooth speaker market.Buy Now on Amazon
