Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not older than my Alexa! I was very excited to received my speaker so fast but I wasn’t expecting such low sound quality. Even the older model/version Pulse 3 is louder then the new version that I purchase Pulse 4. I was so looking forward to be showing off my light show and utilizing that feature but I require louder bass then colorful lights. It’s definitely not worth $200. The name and quality of speaker device I understand but you buy a speaker for the sounds and not really for the name or style of device. Please make Pulse 5 as loud as your Boombox 2 or Flip 5, which ever is louder. I love the light show features on the pulse 4 but it’s just barely loud and little to no bass at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery life kinda sucks! We used to have the JBL charge 2. My husband left it on the hood of his work truck right at the windshield and he drove off and it was never to be seen again. I don’t get upset about much but that one really got to me! That was the best speaker we have ever had. We were reluctant to get the pulse 4 simply because of the price. But we bit the bullet. It’s a great speaker with great sound quality but the battery life is terrible. Even when we turn off the light show, it dies quickly. The JBL charge 2 still had great battery life being 5 years old. It held up so great! Wish I had it back. Someone out there probably found it and is enjoying the heck out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding!!! This is my second portable speaker from JBL. 1st one I bought about 3 years ago, when I first moved to the USA. It’s served me perfectly well. My JBL Charge 3 was lucky enough to go to IBIZA 2 times!!! I can say it’s just served me perfectly well at overseas… With my JBL PULSE 4 s now I have slight better sound and bass accompanied with great light effects.Guys it’s just nice when you listen some chill music during night... Its also depends on what type of music listener you are. Yet, I just love my JBLs .I like how it's sounds and I do like how it looks....I hope you will like it as well Here is a quick comparison video

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like no other!!! I did my extend research without rushing for weeks .. so it seems they were the best, other just trying to compete... so I bought 1 just to check it out. OUTSTANDING!!! PERFORMANCE for a speakers this size specially if properly place in your house. Great futures with the app. The lights are colorful and bright. When you hold it you can just tell.. quality.what I like the best is the party boost, no distortion with the walls.last but important with this type of connection just think of possibilities, multiple linked quality speakers around your house or business. Boom box on main room..... JUST GREAT!!!. GREAT JOB JBL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Color Change is Awesome! I really wanted to hate this speaker as I always felt the pulse series was more about looks than sound quality. However after a few days of use I have changed my mind and this one sounds really good compared to prior pulse speakers. For this review I will be mainly comparing the pulse 4 to the charge 3. Sound quality on the pulse 4 is great but it could be a little better, it has good highs, and decent lows, but I feel like the mids are muted. I noticed with the pulse 4 if you push it to close to wall it doesn't sound good. The optimal place i found for this speaker is more in the middle of a room that has a roof or covering. The 360 sound will fill the room and is plenty loud for a party. However outside with the top of the speaker facing the sky (no ceiling or cover to reflect the sound) the pulse 4 sounded good but but not as wonderful as it did in my kitchen. During the daylight the color LEDs get washed out and are sorta pointless to use, there is a button on the top to disable the LEDs which helps save power. At night time the LEDs are very nice and soothing, I can't wait to use this during summer evenings with friends. The Pulse 4 is very heavy (in a good way) and seems very well built/durable. The dimension are similar to the charge 3. Pros: Good Sound Party mode (didn't work with my charge 3 sadly) Fun to look at Good Battery Life USB C Waterproof Cons: A little pricey Mids are muted no charging block, just the usb cable no AUX input JBL connect app that is used to change colors or patterns sometimes doesn't connect to pulse. Overall I do like this speaker and this is a great party/dorm room speaker. However I prefer my charge 3 a little more as it has more features and (to me) is better sounding and cost less. The Pulse 4 is for sure a party speaker that makes your music entertaining to listen too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound and lights This Bluetooth speaker is simply amazing from the lights to the 360 degree sound I have never used a Bluetooth speaker of higher quality or beauty. The passive bass radiator provides a deep rich sound, and the many lights options keep the party going. The battery life has been amazing even with the lights and heavy use and the usb type c makes charging easier than ever. The build quality feels top notch I wouldn’t be afraid to drop this speaker and the water resistance adds even extra security. I cannot recommend this speaker enough nothing else to even compares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible speaker My partner bought this speaker for me for my birthday. It is absolutely worth every penny. The light show is stunning, and the design of the speaker really elevates that. I downloaded the jbl connect app, and it lets you modify the colors of the light shows. Which is really nice. The bass is incredible. It shakes the table at times. Which surprised me because of the size of this speaker. It really adds to the speaker that the LEDs seem to coordinate with the bass; giving a stunning display. The highs are nice. Not exactly immaculate if you're an audiophile, but REALLY good for a portable speaker. Which, this speaker is easy to take with you. In a purse or a backpack. I think that anyone could, and will, enjoy this speaker. I've already recommended my friends and family get one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pulse 4 great speaker Let me just say that the JBL Pulse 4 speakers are very fun and unique speakers. I would say that If you want to have a speaker that is fun for the house parties, dorm, bbq's, camping. The Pulse 4 is perfectly adequate. 1. The sound comes from the top and the base from the bottom. I would say that the sound is relatively loud. Their sound is a little richer and defined. Unless you have walls and ceilings for the sound to bounce off of, the sound projects upward and is lost outdoors a little more. This was of course to accommodate the visually impressive light show. 2. The lighting is awesome and entertaining. I would say that these speakers are semi-portable. There is no handle to carry them and the polycarbonate shell is definitely fingerprint prone, Plus for smaller hands, it may be a little hard to carry. It can be slippery. So if camping, for example, you should invest in an aftermarket case. 3. The JBL Connect app. It is terrible and buggy. I have spent hours trying to connect the units with my phone or together in stereo. Sometimes it works sometimes it won't recognize the app. It does go into Party Mode easily by pressing the PartyBoost button on the unit (same sound out of both speakers=louder), but I find trying to get stereo mode (L-R separation) is near impossible. 4. The speakers are using an older Bluetooth Codec. not the newer AptX HD for example. So they are not for watching videos. The sync will be off. The newer codex allows a higher bitstream I gather, so more fidelity and a more defined sound. 5. Minor, but there is no AUX connector either. 6.They are for a person who likes the visual party vibe. They are a really good speaker, with good loud clear sound. There are better sounding ones for the money out there but you need to know how it will suit your lifestyle. I just wanted to point out some of the limitations that would make this a truly awesome speaker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing speaker Bought this as a replacement for a previous speaker, mainly due to the light show it does. I am nit disappointed at all. The different light shows are brilliant, and i usually use is as a mood lamp. The sound quality for its size is exceptional, excellent bass and very clear. Fantastic buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite purchases I've had this speaker for nearly a year and I'm absolutely in love with it. Sound is incredible for the size and it has great bass (sometimes too great - have to set it on something soft so it doesn't vibrate the whole table). I bought it for the light show and use it all the time for the lights even when I'm not using the speaker. It gets toted around the house with me like a portable electronic lava lamp. It is a bit heavy and isn't as portable as some of JBL's other speakers, but that's the only downside. This product is one of my favorite purchases, and I plan on getting another one at some point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I got the JBL Pulse 4 speaker a couple of weeks ago and know now why we’ve had JBL speakers in the past. Sound quality is good-I connected this to my tv and the sound filled room. Easy to connect to different devices. Controlling the speakers colours from the app is an excellent feature. Only criticism-a remote control would be very handy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun to use This is a really nice unit. It goes all day and into the night. I like that it has the ipx7 rating because I like all of my valuable electronics to be waterproof, just in case. I also like the buttons on the top that are easy to find to make any playing adjustments. It provides plenty of sound for any room, while still able to be heard well outside. So basically, the highs are great at ANY volume, the mids are best at any point under 70%, and the lows are best between like 30 and 70%. A really important point is that there isn’t any distortion. The colors are really great and help light up the room. Being able to change the colors and affects with the connect app is really nice. I know it has the party boost where it can link with other party boost devices but this is the only part boost I currently own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth it! I was a little skeptical about spending $200+ on a speaker but I really wanted a new one and I had heard great things about this one so I decided to splurge. Best Buy ever! It’s got multiple different settings for the lights and the bass is amazing. the battery life is great, I got it about a week ago and it only just died today and I’ve used it for hours every day. If you’re on the fence about buying it, go for it! You won’t regret it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has Bluetooth 5.1 I bought this speaker primarily for the light display which I am happy with. Doing some research I see that people are disappointed with the unit only having Bluetooth 4.2, it's even advertised as such. If you download the JBL app it will allow you to update the speaker to the newest firmware which has the newer Bluetooth 5.1! Light synchronisation to your music is also updated. JBL need to start telling people about the update lol

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great but... Brought this speaker with the charge 4, however the party boost is not backwards compatible with Connect+. This is a bit annoying since I bought both the speakers expecting to be able to connect them both. I am confused why they did this and didn't make partyboost speakers work with connect + speakers

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked for about two years only, no support My son saved up for this speaker.He loved it while it worked. After abut tow years, poer buttons and bluetooth buttons no lnger worked rendering it useless! Naturally, JBL/Harma said, it is not under warranty so they can' help. Said to take to a service center and pay for repairs! Horrible support, They don't' stand behind their products. They said "sorry but"....Never buy this form them. There are better products and companies that will stand behind their products, even after 1 Year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL Pulse 4- Love,love ,love this speaker ! Came beautifully packaged in a sleek box,this speaker looks every inch quality, is well built and exudes a sleek stylish look. The design of the speaker is fantastic with the 360 glass surround and simple function buttons which are easy to access. The sound that comes from the speaker is top class - the beat really packs a punch without a hint of tininess at any volume. Great to use all around the house,in the garden, garage etc etc. The lightshow that comes from the speaker is fantastic and the lights really do dance along to the music.The lights have several different sequences that can be easily selected via the actual speaker or through the app. Bluetooth connectivity is simple to connect and battery life seems neverending with plenty of warning when needing to charge up the speaker. It was taken in the shower and out on a trampoline in the rain with no adverse effects whatsoever on the sound or performance- this speaker really is a quality piece of technology. I would highly recommend this speaker for so many reasons, the sound, the amazing light effects, the sleek look and the fact that it can be used as a soothing light alone-Great for kids rooms also. This is my first JBL product and I am highly impressed enough to purchase another speaker as a gift for family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Musical Experience Great for All Settings This product is a blast. Fun from the first open, the music quality is great, the light show is immersive and its easy to connect to your phone with their app. I was personally blown away by the mini subwoofer at the bottom of the setup, and impressed that the entire setup is waterproof for no worry fun by the pool or anywhere in the house. A great way to treat yourself or to give an exciting gift for a teenager looking to light up their room or anywhere else on the go. one last thing - the build quality is solid. It feels sturdy and sounds it too!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped Working for no reason I have had this item for 2 weeks and I am shocked that it has just stopped working. I can’t see any lights even on charge. I have done no damage to the speaker it just switched off. I am even more disappointed that upon contacting jbl they do not offer a replacement speaker only a refund. And because I bought the speaker on sale if I was to replace it it would cost me more money than the refund. Disgusting customer service and terrible product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You need this! I initially purchased the third version but I bought this recently after wanting it for so long, when I got it I immediately fell in love. It feels heavy and of good JBL quality which you come to expect. It's a unique speaker with a light show which is simply beautiful. The sound quality is good, nice and clear with a thumping bass even at lower volumes. It is pricey but it's worth every penny, It's like an art sculpture on and off.

Date published: 2019-10-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I got this probably a week ago now and it’s a amazing just like I knew it would be. I have had every pulse leading up until this one and I wasn’t sure if I was going to get this because I want the party box but I seen it in Walmart the other day and couldn’t resist. I have to say if you look at the pulse 1 to this you will be amazed. I loved the pulse 1 and then the 2 came out and I was blown away and didn’t think the pulse series could get any better. Man was my belief wrong when I got my hands on the pulse 3 it was revolutionary I’ve never seen a speaker like it and that’s why I knew I had to get the pulse 4. The pulse 4 offer incredible sound, and it has a long battery life which I enjoy because I’m constantly forgetting to charge my speakers, good thing I have several JBL speakers lol. I’ve only had the pulse 4 for about a week like I said but it’s already my favorite, the colors and lights on this device really are a game changer. Put this in the middle of a dim party and it’s really a dance show now. It pound enough for your house parties and chill enough to play while making dinner at night. Can’t wait to use this at pool parties this summer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features, extremely high sound quality. Just purchased this speaker, and I couldn't be happier. The light features are work well, and I do appreciate the paired app in which you can change the colors simply by choosing your color. I do wish I could choose my color combinations (for multi-color effects), but I am happy with choosing my own directions of the lights. The volume goes very loud, if you need it to, but otherwise I wish I had a second!

Hi on the pulse 4 white, will the white rubber part at the top and bottom of the speaker yellowen over time/ get dirty and not be able to clean properly?

I find that my Bluetooth speakers that last the longest allow me to use the speaker with no batteries installed and the cord plugging it into the outlet. Can this speaker be used that way? Also can you turn off the lights so as not to attract insects?

Asked by: Adriene
Yes, you can use our JBL Pulse 4 while charging since it has lithium-ion batteries. It also has a PCM (Protection Circuit Module) and charge management IC built-in, which manages the charging. If the unit is fully charged, it will automatically convert to trickle charging. Although to save energy, it still recommended to unplug or turn it off when not in use. The light can be turned off/on, there's a button on the back of the speaker that allows you to do it. More information is available in our Quick Start Guide here: http://bit.ly/2QYFYXl

I bought  JBL pulse 4 recently and as I received it I saw charging indicator was not working.I would like to know if it works only when charging or it works all the time when the speaker is on.has it a button to switch it on?in app I see that it’s charged

Asked by: Solomiia
Our JBL Pulse 4 has a battery LED indicator that shows the charging progress of the battery while on charge. Once it's full, it will turn off. This battery indicator will not always be on unless you press a button on the speaker. We highly suggest charging the speaker immediately once it shows a red light, which means low battery.

Using the app I selected a color but the lights still cycle through several - they aren’t even shades of the same color. It keeps going back to multicolored after less than a min. Is this an app issue?

Will it pair with the xtreme2?

Asked by: javi8837
Our JBL Pulse 4 has PartyBoost while our Xtreme 2 has Connect Plus. Due to technology limitations, these features aren't compatible with each other. Pulse 4 can only connect with other speakers that have PartyBoost features like Boombox 2 and Flip 5.

Is there an AUX port in this product? I saw one in pulse3..

Asked by: jackson93
The aux input was removed because the majority of people preferred wireless connection. So we shifted our focus to improve interspeaker connectivity feature and sound quality instead. For more info, check this out: https://bit.ly/2lui9L0
