Unrivaled JBL sound with two high-performance drivers and a built-in bass port for clear, room-filling sound.

The name “JBL” carries with it a reputation for quality sound with lifelike clarity and detail. Two 40mm drivers and a custom-tuned bass port provide room-filling sound with the high-fidelity sound reproduction you’d expect from a JBL product.

Built-in audio and visual experience with programmable LED lights that pulse to your music – wherever you want it to be.

Not only is it great to be free to take your music with you – wherever you want it to go but to provide it – wirelessly – in a portable design that also livens up any get-together with a Multi-LED light show? It’s a sound and vision renovation for the eyes and ears, giving you new ways to enjoy your favourite tunes – and then some.

Wireless Bluetooth® stereo streaming with NFC for use with any Bluetooth®-enabled smart devices.

Knowing you can deliver your sound preferences from any source device frees you up to spend more time having fun and less time planning for it. The spontaneity built into this instant-party sound system is one of its most exciting components.

Pre-programmed and custom-programmed light themes controlling brightness and color, pulsed to your music.

Variety is the spice of life – and you’re in control of what happens next. From five pre-programmed light themes to many more downloadable options, you can choose to match these to your music or exhibit your own creative touch by customizing the patterns of brightness and color yourself. And you can change it with a single touch. Either way, the entertainment’s on your terms.

Rechargeable Li-ion battery for 10 hours of wireless fun.

It’s sure not portable if you have to plug it in. And JBL Pulse can go anywhere and deliver wireless fun for up to 10 hours (music only) or 5 hours (music and light show) thanks to its rechargeable Li-ion battery. One less thing to worry about means the party starts now.

Simplified set-up, easy connection and complete control with the JBL app.

Connect two devices at the same time with the knowledge that you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to make it happen. Bluetooth® makes it simple – and instantaneous – to connect your mobile phone or tablet to satisfy all of your portable music needs – on a whim. The enclosed Quick-start guide makes it simple while the JBL app does the rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Execellent for a gift. Will I have no idea how this JBL Pulse sounds or works as I have bought it as a gift for my little brother. And base on his response he enjoys using it every day. He told me he already had a wireless speaker but this is his new favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something Special I purchased the JBL Pulse after a side by side comparison to the Bose Soundlink Mini. While the Bose bests the Pulse in Bass, JBL delivers an overall experience. Quality sound at any volume whether streaming music or watching Netflix. The light show is one of the best gimmicks currently on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PRODUCT but............... Hands down.. Its a wonderful product! I'm having a great time with this new bluetooth speaker! Yes Its eyecandy and I really like that. Sound wise, the speaker sounds really good! No low bass but thats fine. There is a negative portion about this product. Its that JBL/Harmon Kardon chose NOT to include a case or protective sleeve. That's a bit mind boggling because the $150 JBL CHARGE comes with a protective case/sleeve. Come on guys really?? $200 for this and you can't even include a cover for this???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is WAY cool, BUT REALLY, NO Android LED APP? After 2 weeks use EVERY night I can report truthfully this: The battery life is GREAT (w/ the LED lights on the battery life is OVER 6.5 hours, not 5). It re-charges in about 6+ hours. The sound is clear, with a nice tonal quality at all designed sound levels. Finally, the LED lights are WAY COOL & fun too look at, they are bright, responsive, with the actual product in the box being as good as, or better than even the YouTube ads seen online. BUT... Here is where praise ends... WHY is there No ANDROID App to custom set the LED lights to MY personal liking? Why is it that you ONLY offer this APP to APPLE customers? Just what makes them so special here when the APP is just a thing FREE for them get? THIS IS ALMOST THE MAIN FEATURE FOR THE PRODUCT! I'm going to clue you in OK JBL... Ask yourselves this question: What is the ratio of Android phones to Apple ones? I'll tell you what it is so you can get to fixing this issue NOW: It's 81% Android phones TO ALL OTHER types of Smart Phones out there. 81%! Not 35%, or even 45% to Apple's 50%, no, the Apple ratio is FAR lower... and this info is for Q3 2013 so it's not old news here. Apple (Smart) Phones are just a scant 13.4% to Android's 81%! With all the rest being either Microsoft or other type bringing up the rear. Think for a moment, who is going to use this product? A laptop user? A "Big Screen TV" user? No, it's going to be used by a Smart Phone (or Tablet) user because the speaker on their phone is really just there to make phone calls. And this ratio works about the same for all Tablets too (Android to Apple etc.). So, JBL you got a pretty big problem here. You have something really special with the Pulse, SO don't blow it by neglecting your BIGGEST Smart Phone (Tablet) market(s) just before the holidays are here! Sprint, along with many other carriers, are selling the JBL Pulse RIGHT NOW (Nov 2013) IN STORES all across globe and ONLINE. BUT, when asked about the APP for their Android Smart Phones they have NO ANSWER as to why you are selling this product to the public with one hand tied behind their (and our) backs. So please, get with the program here while this wireless speaker is still HOT and people are buying them for holiday gifts for others (and themselves). OK...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality and sound I bought this speaker a few days ago. Its sound is amazing and so are the light effects. Just like the other person here, I tought it was a shame it only has an app for apple products. But now I just found out here, there will be an android app! What can I say? That's amazing service from JBL. I love it :) Thank for listening to us android users, we'll keep listening to our music with JBL!
