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.

So much fun!

By 

from Pine, CO, United States

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.

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

Lights are neat. Sound isn''t all that great. No bass. I feel like I could have gotten a better speaker for less $$ if I had done more shopping around and I was able to listen to other speakers.

All around a fantastic product

By 

from Bentonville, AR, United States

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

I recently received this speaker as a present and I am greatly pleased. It is very easy to use and extremely worth getting. I sound is great, very very loud and also very fit to your own desire. The led lights are not customizable and the fact that they can go with the beat of the music is not the strongest of the many qualities, but the options available otherwise are more than fantastic. I would without a doubt recommend this to anyone looking for something to this field of music entertainment.

Doesn't play in stereo.

By 

from Saint Peters, MO, United States

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

I'm not as happy with the Pulse as I thought I would be. I connect from my iPhone 5C and the Pulse only seems to be playing one sound channel, rather than playing in stereo. Thinking the problem might be with my iPhone, I connected an mp3 player directly to the Pulse, and the sound is the same. I hear one channel loud and clear, but the other channel is very faint. I'd give the Pulse 5 stars if I was hearing stereo rather than almost mono.

No support for Windows Phone?!

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone has an iPhone or a droid. Where's the support for Windows Phone?
