JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review

YugaTech
29 April 2014
  • Summary: The JBL Pulse is definitely one of the best portable speakers out there. It packs a great build, portable body, long battery life, good set of wireless functions, visually enticing customizable light themes, and very good sound quality. On the downside, it is expensive at Php8,995 . If only JBL added waterproofing and dust-proofing to the mix (like the Braven 440 which costs Php3,650) then the Pulse could be the perfect portable wireless speaker solution.

JBL Pulse Bluetooth speaker Review

thinkdigit.com
2 April 2014
  • Summary: This Bluetooth speaker stands out in a crowd quite effortlessly. The flashing lights are perhaps the biggest attraction. With an adequate sound quality to keep you interested, the Pulse could very well be the Bluetooth speaker of choice for the attention seeking souls. The LED light-show is something that is distinctly unique, and there is no doubting that. But, when it comes to sound, it has its limitations, if you listen to a lot of rock or trance music.
  • Pros: LED lights are the biggest attraction, Good sound for its size, Good battery life
  • Cons: Volume can be stretched only to a certain level

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

Tech2
3 February 2014
  • Summary: 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 seems like the light show is merely a distraction from the otherwise average audio quality. A good (and much cheaper) alternative to the Pulse which has all its features is the Jabra Solemate mini.

JBL Pulse Bluetooth Speaker: Review

Chip Chick
19 January 2014
  • Summary: 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 the Pulse just begs to be taken everywhere. However, we do love how smoothly the JBL app integrates with the speaker and with future light shows coming; JBL has made sure the good times roll well into 2014.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: No carrying case. Some songs might experience some very light distortion.

JBL Pulse Wireless LED Speaker Review

gadgetmac.com
19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: The Pulse is easily the most impressive speaker we have tested, but it has more to do with the fact that it offers something different. Something new and fresh. Something truly unique to JBL. I'm talking of course about the elephant in the room which is the Pulse's amazing LED lighting. It may very well be a modern-day lava lamp-esque gadget married with a portable wireless speaker that has it's own energy source.
