Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just more I´v only used it this weekend but im soled. My friend had one and I was impressed with the base from sutch a small thing and the clarity in witch it delivers the sound with only bluetoth. No WiFi. The puls led lights came as a surprise...acctually its a bit cosy in the dark Scandinavian Winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product, could have some tweaking Like the title says, I love this speaker from the get-go. However, there are some improvements I will suggest. Here are my pro's and con's: Pros: Very loud! At full blast, I could hear it from my garage door to the end of the backyard (which was a very long distance.) The LED's dance to the music as well. What also I think was neat is that if it gets flipped upside down, the LED's flip around along with it. Cons: According to some reviews, using the lights drops the battery life from 10 hours to 5 hours, which if this is true, it kind of destroys what makes this product unique from the other speakers. Another thing that is missing is the equalizer mode, which seems like a very cool light effect when seen on YouTube videos. However, equalizer mode is on my speaker, but it's not the multi-colored one. It's the equalizer where if you were to scan a color there would be two color types, such as scanning green would make a green and purple bars, red would make red and blue bars, pink would make pink and teal bars, etc. Other than that, this product is very nice, sound clarity is great and the bass is amazing. Equalizer mode is my main concern on what I'd like to see come back. Have a good day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The lava lamp I always wanted I always wanted a Lava Lamp, but never had one. I love the colorful lights, beautiful. The sound is excellent. The features can be enhanced by using the JBL connect app and the JBL music app. With the music app I find a huge selection of music and the lights will bounce to the beat. The Connect app plays with the light show. All are nice except the magic board where you write with your finger and the pattern shows up on the speaker, Mine does not. The lights on the speaker just goes blank. I live with that because I love the rest of it esp the sound.

how long does it take for intial charge and then how long for charge there after?

Asked by: mikerooster62
The PULSE 2 comes with a factory charge when brand new, but it varies. With this, there is really no direct time-frame that we can provide for an initial charge. Unlike older devices that needs a certain amount of time plugged in initially, batteries now are better and does not require this. It's charging time is 5 hours. The LED indicator when charging, should turn to white and stop flashing, stating full charge.

My JBL Pulse 2 was working fine the first time I used it. After that, the light show will not come on at all. How can I fix this?

Asked by: Los234
What you are experiencing is not normal. To try and resolve the issue, first, try to let the PULSE 2’s battery drain. Afterwards, charge the unit until full and retry. If this does not fix it, please do a reset on your PULSE 2. Here is what to do to complete a factory reset on the PULSE 2: 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 Pair your phone with the PULSE 2 after and check if this fixed the light show. If the lightshow is still not working, if you’re located in US please do contact our customer support team at jbl.com/contactus and our Customer Service team will be glad to assist you

Speaker died, plugged it up to charger and has been charging. the lights and power button light up when on the charger, as soon as I take it off the speaker shuts down and won't go light up unless plugged in. Also not detectable for Bluetooth 

Asked by: kaymarie
It sounds like the PULSE 2 is no longer holding a charge. To determine where the problem is, please try using a different USB charging cable and plug it in at an alternate power source. If this doesn't help, please submit a request at www.jbl.com/contactus for information regarding your warranty options, thank you.

Can i pair this to the JBL Xtreme?

Asked by: kevin0131
Yes you can, using the JBL CONNECT feature. Being that the PULSE 2 is a JBL CONNECT enabled speaker, it can be paired wirelessly to another JBLCONNECT enabled speakers to stream music from the source device. The only models with this feature at the moment are FLIP 3, BOOST TV, CHARGE 3 and XTREME.

My Pulse 2 is working with bluetooth but no button on it is working. The * led is on and I'm able to connect with other devices. I even can't turn it off. Any tip? Thanks.

Asked by: Ranieri
What you are experiencing with the PULSE 2 is not normal. Keep the unit turned on until the battery is used up and recharge it. If that doesn't solve the problem please contact the store that you’ve purchased the PULSE 2 from and they should be able to assist you, or at least guide you to those who can.
