JBL Pulse 3 review

 

A party speaker that sounds great

Balanced sound profile ; 360-degree sound ; Built-in microphone

JBL Pulse 3

JBL Pulse 3 review: The JBL light show returns with waterproofing

 

The JBL Pulse 3 is the 3rd generation of JBL's popular Pulse series and this time you won't have to worry about the Pulse getting wet.

Nice sleek design ; Great build quality ; Fun light show ; Waterproof

Lacks some low end ; Light show doesn't really completely sync with the music
