JBL Pulse Review: Colorful Speaker That Look And Sound Good

 
May, 2014

Expert review by : Will Greenwald (itreviews.co.uk)

JBL Pulse

 

The JBL Pulse is a good-sounding, good-looking Bluetooth speaker that displays a customizable light show to go with your music.

The Pulse gets surprisingly loud for its large-beer-can-shape, though it suffers in the low end. It brought out impressive midrange and low-mid detail, such as in the thumpy guitar of The Offspring’s “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid,” and the mix of...

JBL Pulse: Wireless Bluetooth speaker with a built-in light show

 

The $199.99 Pulse is designed to be both heard and seen. That makes it a unique product in a crowded field of mobile speakers vying for your attention.

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...

Can distort at higher volumes with rock tracks and bass-heavy material; no carrying case included.

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

 

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.

Still, the JBL Pulse is the ultimate small-sized party speaker thanks to its unique light show. It's mesmerizing enough to make us accept its $200 price tag despite falling short of class-leading sound quality. It does sounds good, though, and the...

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...

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

 

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

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...

Fun LED light show ; Loud speakers

No speakerphone ; Limited battery life

The JBL Pulse's LED lights are a treat for the eyes, but the sound is just average.
