JBL Pulse Review: Colorful Speaker That Look And Sound Good

May, 2014

Expert review by : Will Greenwald (

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


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.

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...

The JBL Pulse 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...

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: Fancy lighting effects don't make up for average sound quality - Tech2


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

JBL's portable speaker is a perfect gadget for parties.

It's insanely loud; Sound has depth; Amazing light effects; Easy to set-up; Impressive design and construction; Good battery life.

JBL Pulse Bluetooth Speaker Review: See Your Music


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.
