After 2 weeks use EVERY night I can report truthfully this: The battery life is GREAT (w/ the LED lights on the battery life is OVER 6.5 hours, not 5). It re-charges in about 6+ hours. The sound is clear, with a nice tonal quality at all designed sound levels. Finally, the LED lights are WAY COOL & fun too look at, they are bright, responsive, with the actual product in the box being as good as, or better than even the YouTube ads seen online. BUT... Here is where praise ends... WHY is there No ANDROID App to custom set the LED lights to MY personal liking? Why is it that you ONLY offer this APP to APPLE customers? Just what makes them so special here when the APP is just a thing FREE for them get? THIS IS ALMOST THE MAIN FEATURE FOR THE PRODUCT! I'm going to clue you in OK JBL... Ask yourselves this question: What is the ratio of Android phones to Apple ones? I'll tell you what it is so you can get to fixing this issue NOW: It's 81% Android phones TO ALL OTHER types of Smart Phones out there. 81%! Not 35%, or even 45% to Apple's 50%, no, the Apple ratio is FAR lower... and this info is for Q3 2013 so it's not old news here. Apple (Smart) Phones are just a scant 13.4% to Android's 81%! With all the rest being either Microsoft or other type bringing up the rear. Think for a moment, who is going to use this product? A laptop user? A "Big Screen TV" user? No, it's going to be used by a Smart Phone (or Tablet) user because the speaker on their phone is really just there to make phone calls. And this ratio works about the same for all Tablets too (Android to Apple etc.). So, JBL you got a pretty big problem here. You have something really special with the Pulse, SO don't blow it by neglecting your BIGGEST Smart Phone (Tablet) market(s) just before the holidays are here! Sprint, along with many other carriers, are selling the JBL Pulse RIGHT NOW (Nov 2013) IN STORES all across globe and ONLINE. BUT, when asked about the APP for their Android Smart Phones they have NO ANSWER as to why you are selling this product to the public with one hand tied behind their (and our) backs. So please, get with the program here while this wireless speaker is still HOT and people are buying them for holiday gifts for others (and themselves). OK...

I received this as a Christmas gift. iPad set-up was quick and easy. The speaker is loud enough to be heard throughout the house. The sound quality is good for its size: I wasn't amazed by it, but it's definitely a nice little package. The quick start guide is very Ikea: it's image based and doesn't answer many questions, which is a shame as it's the Pulse's only manual. The disappointing aspect of the speaker is its colors. The visuals could be nice, but the colors are generic. You can only choose a solid block of color or a pre-programmed color set. We spent an hour trying to put Christmas colors on it, to no avail. We could make the Pulse green or red, not both at once. (Pre-programmed color sets included yellow and green or red and blue.) Forget putting favorite color combinations on it, or sports team colors on it, until they give users the option. That oversight lessens the visual quality of the speaker, and I would wait to purchase until they add the functionality.

Very Excellent Speaker!

By

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth 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!

    Charger ports fail - every time

    By 

    from Ohio, United States

    Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

    Bought this JBL Pulse about 3-4 months ago. We were very impressed with the sound and light display and it's very easy to connect, but after about 6 weeks of use the sound started to fade and just wasn't the quality it initially was. Then, about 2 weeks ago, I tried to charge the device and found it wouldn't take a charge. Upon closer look, we found that the metal in the charger "port" (not sure what else to call it) was a little bent, and so therefore not working properly. We can no longer charge or use this device. Now I'd consider this a fluke, however, this is the 4th bluetooth speaker we have purchased in the last 18 months. All of them have the same defect. after several months of use the charger ports become bent or unusable. The first two brands we purchased were not "high quality" brands, but not cheap either. Same thing happened. the last two devices were JBL and as I've stated same problem. we only charge these things once every week or two. we are not shoving the cords in the ports. and trust me after the first thing, we are handling these things with kid gloves. Ironically we have since found we personally know 3 other people this has happened to. JBL is a great brand name. I expect better. and no refunds or returns accepted for that "issue". So just be weary about any speaker you buy for that reason....unless it has GREAT reviews.

    Loud, Colorful, Okay sound quality

    Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

    I bought this about 4 months ago and It has been a very good Bluetooth speaker. For it's size it is very loud and sounds okay. The UE boom does have better overall sound quality and is about the same price.

    So much fun!

    By

    Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

    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.
