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!

Hello. I cannot make my JBL Pulse 2 play by using macbook pro 2015. I succesfully paired the devices but the sound go only through speakers on macbook. Please let me know If you can help me solve the problem. P/S I am using Mac OS X El Capitan.

Asked by: Egor
You would need to check if the speaker is set as the computers dedicated speakers and if the Bluetoot/Wireless protocol of the computer allows wireless audio streaming to external speakers. You can follow these steps to check your computers audio preferences: ***You can play sound through your computer’s internal speakers, your display’s speakers (if it has speakers), or through speakers, headphones, or other equipment plugged into your Mac or available wirelessly through AirPlay. Before you start, open the Output pane of Sound preferences (choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Sound, then click Output). Choose a sound output device From the list of sound output devices, select the one you want to use. All sound output devices available to your Mac are listed, including the computer’s internal speakers, devices plugged into your computer’s sound port (Audio port icon), USB speakers, and AirPlay devices. For any device plugged into the computer’s sound port, choose Headphones. Adjust sound output settings You can adjust balance and volume for sound output with the controls in the preference pane. If you select the “Show volume in menu bar” checkbox, a volume control appears in the menu bar so that you can turn the volume up or down from anywhere. To set a separate volume for alert sounds, click Sound Effects. Depending on your Mac and the devices you use, you may be able to set other volume options using the Audio MIDI Setup app. If you use apps that have volume controls (for example, iTunes or iMovie), their settings can only be equal to or less than the computer’s output volume. They do not override the settings you choose in Sound preferences.*** (Source from:

I purchased this speaker yesterday and have a question . . . how do I know when the battery is getting low and needs to be recharged?  Is there a dial that indicates a low battery and how long does it have to be plugged in to get a full charge?

Asked by: Glory66
The PULSE 2 has 5 led indicator "dots" for battery charge, battery level can be checked with the help of those indicators. If you have the Connect App installed to your mobile devices, you can notice that the same 5 "dot" battery indicator is also shown. That same 5 "dot" battery indicator lets you know battery level of the speakers.

Do you have to download the Jbl connect app for directions to connect the speaker and is the app free?

Asked by: Glco
You really don't need to download the app. However, updates for the speaker and additional light effects are only available if you have the app installed to your mobile device. The app is free and if you need additional directions, the PULSE 2 came with an illustrated quick start guide for instructions.

Hi, I have trouble with charging my JBL Pulse2. It is brand new and now it is on level 3 with signal dots. When I connect it to the charger in the wall it doesn't react at all. Only little red lamp inside the charger blink and that is all. Please help!

Asked by: teacher
What you are experiencing is not normal. Try using a different charging cable and try alternating where you are charging the PULSE2 (i.e wall outlet, USB ports on laptops/computer) and let it charge until the white LEDs (Battery Level Indicator) become solid. If this doesn't help, please submit a request at and our Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.
