JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – Performance

JBL speakers are really impressive when it comes to sound quality. JBL speakers such as the JBL Flip 2 and the JBL Clip+ are examples of great sounding portable wireless speakers, consider also its size and build.

So we also expected a lot to JBL Pulse’s performance to be a top notch as well. Upon testing this unique JBL speaker, our team was not disappointed. The JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker produces loud, crisp, and smooth sound that’s very enjoyable. We tried it with Troye Sivan’s “WILD” and we really liked how his vocals and tunes sound from the JBL Pulse. The midrange this JBL speaker produces is absolutely natural and clean. You can really hear the sound clearly without any distortions and such. The JBL Pulse also provides harmony and balance to the sound it gives. We like how this portable wireless speaker delivers satisfying sound, especially when we are in the mood for some soul music.

When it comes to bass quality, the JBL Pulse also delivers. As the sound and its LED light beats with the music, so as the bass that pumps within it. For a portable speaker of its size, we can say that the bass it produces is really powerful.

The JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is made with a rechargeable battery which saves you more energy and money. Its battery can perform for up to 10 hours of playtime, if used with audio streaming only, but if you use it while enabling its multi-LED lights, the battery life can stay for up to 5 hours. To recharge the JBL Pulse, all you need to do is use its standard micro-USB connection, a hassle-free charging indeed.


JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – Design

JBL has focused mainly on aesthetics or looks when making the JBL Pulse. Though it is a test whether to entice audiophiles in hearing out their music while enjoying watching the pulsing multi-LED lights, for us, this is a move of JBL that’s really favourable and impressive.

We love how the JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker looks! This JBL speaker is very compact and portable, very easy to bring or carry anywhere you will go. If you want to bring it in a party, then be it! The JBL Pulse is lightweight at 1.1 pounds and has a dimension of 7.9 x 3.9 x 3.9 inches, which makes it really easy to handle while dancing with the beat of the sound and the pulse of its light.

The JBL Pulse is a cylindrical portable wireless speaker that has a similar design with two of JBL speakers, Charge and Flip. The only difference to note here is that the JBL Pulse is designed with a metal mesh speaker grille that protects the multi-LED lights behind it. For the LED lights, JBL made sure that you’re given different display options or themes. The pre-programmed display options are actually five to provide you better excitement and mood.

JBL Pulse is available with different controls such as the power on/off, volume buttons, Bluetooth connection buttons, display enabler, and ports such as input for micro-USB and aux input as well. It should be noted that JBL Pulse don’t have any available controls for skip forward/back, especially if you prefer using it while playing music from your smartphone.

The connection was actually very easy, smooth, and flawless. You can connect your Android smartphone, iOS devices, your Microsoft phones, and other enabled devices via Bluetooth or NFC.

We should let you know though that there is a lack of speakerphone capabilities for the JBL Pulse, so no conference calls available at the moment.
