JBL Pulse Review

JBL Pulse is compact wireless Bluetooth speaker which delivers great sound for its rather small form. It distinguishes itself with integrated light show with themes of preprogrammed and customizable nature. There is a rechargeable battery built in which delivers approximately 10 hours of service along 5 hours of light show effect. The market for portable Bluetooth speakers is crowded with many products sounding generic in performance. This product however attempts shaking things up with its multi-LED light functionality.



Pulse from JBL exhibits design similar to the highly-rated Bluetooth speakers Flip and Charge from the same manufacturer. It however utilizes metal mesh grille for covering and combines it with lights underneath. This 2 by 6-watt speaker plays slightly louder than the 5-watt for Charge, sounding a bit better in comparison owing to its superior bass response. JBL Pulse however offers less battery power than Charge, which integrates USB port to enable charging of mobile gadgets.



Equally, Pulse is costlier than Flip speaker. Expect to have a much flashier speaker in this device, even though this mesmerizing feature might not appeal to everyone. Its users enjoy utilizing an array of preprogrammed modes, apart from selecting a desirable custom light theme for controlling brightness. You could alternatively altogether turn off the LEDs then listen to Pulse as standard form of wireless Bluetooth speaker. Raising and lowering volume operations get reflected on the speaker as well.



JBL Pulse might not provide the best kind of sound compared to competing brands of speakers. However it incorporates a light show which adds some flashy dimension to the experience of listeners, making it worthy contender within any crowded market.



Expect to get unrivaled sound via dual high-performance drivers, along with built-in bass port to attain clear sound which fills the room. Look forward to experiencing Wireless Bluetooth® stereo streaming using NFC, which is compatible with Bluetooth®-enabled smart gadgets.



JBL Pulse Bluetooth speaker puts on Multi-LED light show, which comes in five pre-programmed options for display. The manual control allows for selecting from a choice of seven colors, together with an assortment of interactions. As well, this gadget brings along ability of “pulsing” visually with music, which is very eye-catching and an easy to notice feature.



Pulse from JBL is flashy and projects audio quite well especially indoors. This could be within small office setting that requires low volume or even larger-sized places where energetic and loud music is needed. The gadget produces near-zero distortion even when sound is set to full limit. It incorporates two drivers of high performance as well as built-in bass port.



The speaker is appreciably compact and generates exciting sound levels. It fits within one hand well and suits both office and car use and makes for a great alternative of costly auxiliary port installation.

  • The Good :
    Rechargeable Li-ion battery, Wireless streaming via Bluetooth functionality, Custom-programmed and preprogrammed light themes
  • The Bad :
    Sound can get distorted at higher volumes for rock tracks and other bass-heavy content, Carrying case not included, Costlier than previous-generation speakers
Our score:
4 / 5
