21 November 2013
Summary: 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.
Pros: The, 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 for sound only and 5 hours with the light show in effect.
Cons: Can distort at higher volumes with rock tracks and bass-heavy material; no carrying case included.
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.
Conclusion: The Glitz gets no marks for originality. It cannot challenge the JBL Pulse in terms of finesse, but is definitely a cost-effective alternative. The JBL Pulse costs Rs 9000, whereas you can get the Glitz for Rs 3400. Obviously there's a significant price difference between the two.
Pros: Affordable; Good sound output; Easy to set-up; Sturdy construction; Long battery life; Supports microSD cards.
Cons: LED show is quite dull; Has a few rough edges.
