JBL Pulse 2 is rated 4.0851 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best portable speaker!! I purchased this about 3 weeks and love it. The sound quality is great and the colors are beautiful. This my first time purchasing from JBL and I'm impressed. This is perfect for outings at the park or just hanging out with your friends and family. You'll love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound & Fun Light Show! Bought this so I would have it for a weekend get away with friends. As soon as I turned it on my buddy went online and ordered one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Works as if it were brand new. I was able to save quite a bit of money ordering it from here and refurbished in comparison to a brand new product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big sound in small package Coming from a guy whose ears have been spoiled with the warm smooth sound of a tube amplifier, Considering the size of the speaker, the sound quality is EXCELLENT!. Sound reproduction is very good a normal listening volume. Sound does get distorted at higher volumes but you can get decent loud sound. It does have some very minor bass distortion but not enough for the average person to notice. (Then again, my ears have been spoiled with tube sound). I do hear sounds from each channel through the speaker however it lacks channel separation. I understand that 2 speakers can be linked together, I only have one so I don't know if by adding a second speaker would allow for a Left and Right speaker or 2 mono speakers. The light show is an interesting feature of the speaker with the color sensor. I use this speaker at my job with a Bluetooth connection to my laptop and the battery will last my full 10 hour work day, even with the light show feature on and still have leftover battery power. That being said, it actually lasts the full 10 hours as indicated on the box. The one last thing you may want to consider is that there are 2 exposed woofers (one on the top and other on the bottom) that do not have a grill or anything to protect them so you may want to take that into consideration if you plan on carrying the speaker in a bag with other items. Overall I think it is a great solution for high quality room filling portable sound!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Product , Great Company and Super Service I bought JBL Pulse 2 after a lot of research on buying a bluetooth Audio Speaker. The item amazed me with its features and built quality and I enjoy the sound and its tunes of colors.The service of Harman is prompt at every step from purchasing to delivery and service.What else can we expect from a legitimate company like HarmanK...Best Regards

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Updating! It's an amazing speaker and I'm loving it the only problem that I have found so far is updating the speaker? A week ago I had the app and followed the downloading instructions on my iPad and after 4 attempts of the speaker stopping the update at 10.1% I knew something was up but still don't know??? I've also tried using an IPhone to update it but that's also stopping at 10.1%? Please if anyone knows anything that can help I will be much appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome I bought this back in December and I have been loving it since. This speaker packs a punch with its bass and sound quality is crystal clear. This speaker is also very portable and more with the carring case. The light shows were the main focus for why I bought it as I could use it when I have some friends over and just enjoy music and the light show. With the JBL Connect app, you can program the lightshows, but recently there was an update to the speakers firmware giving it two more light shows, Equalizer and Waves. I was astonished by how awesome these two light shows were especially the Equilizer. 5/5

The speaker won't charge I know it's not battery issue

How long does a full charge (new out of the box) take? Mine has been charging for 4.5 hours and it doesn't seem to get past the third white light level? Thanks.

Asked by: creativegiant
The PULSE 2's charging time is maximum of 5 hours (@5V, 2.3A). The 5 white LEDs (Battery Level Indicator) become solid, letting you know that you have a full charge. I assume that the PULSE 2 is directly plugged into a wall outlet because you will experience extended charging time when it is plugged into a USB port on a computer. If this is the case, try one of these options to resolve the issue. - Disconnect cabling and unpair/disconnect any devices which may be paired/connected Bluetooth. Allow the battery to completely discharge. Apply the power source and allow the battery to charge completely. - Try a reset. In power ON mode, press and hold the "Volume +" and "Play" buttons at the same time for 2-3 seconds. The PULSE 2 will power off, and is now reset. - Check the latest software for the PULSE 2 via JBL Connect app.

Can't update my pulse 2 , the update stops at 10.1 despite multiple attempts , how to fix this 

Asked by: Fais
I don't know the exact reason, but somehow WiFi connection may disturb Bluetooth data transfer in some devices, such as mine. I tried to upload the firmware, however always stopped around 10%. After disabling WiFi, updating process was completely successful.

Is it possible to manually change the color of the lights without using the sensor?

Asked by: Sunkalp
You can change the color of the lights without using the sensor if you use the Connect App. Just download the App and connect your device to the speaker. You can change the lights and configuration of the PULSE 2 when you use the App.

how can i  fix my speaker it won't turn on i tried with the charger and it won't work . how can i fix it, thank

Asked by: jose01
Try using a different charging cable and try alternating where you are charging the speakers (i.e wall outlet, USB ports on laptops/computer) and let it charge until the charging lights indicate full charge. If replacing the charger cable doesn't help and this is just recently purchased, please contact the dealer or retailer for replacements or exchanges. If the speaker was purchased from us or is more than 30 days old, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/contactus and they will be glad to assist you.

hi, a month ago a just got my JBL pulse 2 but suddenly all bottons aren`t working, I cant even turn it off.  what should I do?? 

Asked by: Chris25
Try performing a reset on your speaker. I do understand that the buttons are not working, but it is worth a try. Reset Procedure: Power on the PULSE 2. For 2 seconds, press and hold the "Volume +" and "Play" buttons. The PULSE 2 will power off, and is now reset. Since your PULSE 2 is now behaving erratically, please contact the dealer or retailer for replacements or exchanges.

I got yesterday JBL Pulse 2. New box. After 8 hours of charging, I installed JBL Connect, updated the firmware and since yesterday Prism feature no longer works. The camera does not turn on more flash. I have performed the reset, but it did not work. :(

Asked by: birosilveira
I am sorry to hear about what happened. Since you have performed a reset, I recommend that you return the speaker to the store where it was bought, if the speaker was purchased from us, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/contactus and they will be glad to assist you.

Hi! is it possible to have a equalizer for the JBL Pulse 2? and app or something that I can control the bass and treble?

Asked by: Geishy
Thank you for the inquiry. This product does not have equalization features. The source device (phone, tablet, computer, etc.) music player or third party apps may have equalization features for adjusting bass and treble. Best Regards.
