Shaped reminiscent of an oversized soda can, this speaker stands tall at 18 cm by 8 cm height and diameter. Its most distinctive feature and its main selling point, are the LED lights wrapped around the curve of its surface. Despite being bigger than what most would consider conveniently portable these days, as it barely skirts the requirements of what passes as portable, The Pulse still fits comfortably when held in the palm of your hand. Display it the way you want, whether on its side or one either of its ends, and don’t worry about it rolling around as it has a flat side made of rubber where the USB charging port is placed, along with the battery indicators and the auxiliary port.
Bask in The Lightshow
Put on some music, sit back, and enjoy the easy distraction of the LEDs pulsing according to the beat and rhythm of the music.
A great choice for parties, either as a fantastic music player that also looks good or as a conversation starter, let the Pulse control the flow of your party and enjoy the LED light show. Owning the Pulse is a surefire way to get the conversation started at any gathering with its attention-grabbing display.
Programmed with 5 preset light settings, you will never be bored with the Pulse belting out your tunes. And if you do, you can set your own themes based on your own preferences on the JBL app.
The battery life of the speaker is advertised as 10 hours with the LED display off and 5 hours with it on, which gives you plenty of time to jam out to your favorite music.
Sounds Like It Looks
That is to say, amazing. Characteristic of JBL speakers, the sound quality of the Pulse is a step up from other speakers. What’s more, the Pulse is loud, unexpected due to its small size, and it’s more than capable of providing music for any party. When paired with the amazing visuals, the JBL Pulse is a great choice when looking for a new speaker.
