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.

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 favorite tunes – and then some.

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.

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.

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.

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.

JBL Pulse is rated 4.197 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Excellent Speaker! I have a buddy who has one of these and I really liked it so I decided to look at all the JBL speakers. After looking at the JBL speakers with subs incorporated into them it was evident that they could not be played at a loud volume with out distortion occurring. The Pulse 2 has a sub and lighting features. The lighting features are more defined by the addition of more LED lights but the lighting effects aren't the same. The Pulse 1 lights can go with the beat of the music up and down while the Pulse 2 lighting can not. That is another reason I went with the Pulse 1. This speaker sounds amazing for the price you pay and can be played at louder volumes than the ones that do have subs. This speaker is great for around the house, around the pool, and for parties. I highly recommend for you to consider this speaker when looking for a great quality Bluetooth speaker! Couldn't be more pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! Paired with my iPhone this is about the most fun I've had with a $200 product ever! Great sound and portability, makes any night a party! Sounds amazing for its size, and lack of bass can be fixed by placement, (in a corner), but all the fidelity you need for on the go or around the house.

the Pulse show doesnt adjust according to the position of the speaker, stacked in the horizontal position with only 1 color of led lights. It should be combined and adjjust to the beat. But when you select other shows like fire neon, they are all working.

We purchased 2 speakers, one for my son & one for my daughter.  Unfortunately, they cannot use both of them at the same time with two different iPhones.  When one starts playing, it causes the other to stop.  Does anyone know of any way to make this work?

Asked by: sshissler
Thank you for your inquiry, bluetooth is a one to one device, please turn off 1 device first and pair it with 1 iphone once that is connected, turn off the paired unit and work with the other set of speaker and second iphone both will individually play on different phone and speaker.

I have no problem running my jbl pulse with bluetooth from my iphone but can't get it to work from my macbook. any ideas?

Asked by: bobby101
Thank you for your question, bluetooth devices require a specific driver to run and on most cases Mac and IOS should not have a problem but it may or may not work. Try to unpair and repair again Randy at JBL

Can you pair 2 JBL Pulse to the same let's say Iphone 5 or can you only pair 1 Pulse with 1 Iphone?

Asked by: NicolasB

what i mean to say is the equalizer not adjusting to the postion of speaker and never combine 2 colors together when beats goes up and down. Stayed as horizontal. Anything needs to re program the applications?
