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.

Really nice, but one problem

By 

from nj

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

I really love this speaker and everything about it but my number one problem, which doesnt seem like a big deal, is that it doesnt inform you well enough when its about to die, it just shuts off. the only way of being able to tell that the battery is low is from a really tiny blinking red light which is impossible to see from a distance, if you even have that side of the speaker facing you. I wish it would let out a beep or some sort of indication before it dies. Also the ability to shut it off from a phone would also be really handy.

Lights up our porch with fun

By 

from Sebastian, FL, United States

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

I bought this for my husband for Christmas, and could not wait. And so glad I didn't, WOW, it just lights up our back porch with music , flashing lights and all we add is the fun. The carrying case was well worth the extra investment, to protect and keep secure our new party animal.

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

My wife gave me this as a Christmas gift. I love it! Bluetooth is great for my phone. I also plug it into my laptop for great sound and light show. My son found the Pulse app and it's awesome. You can customize the light colors, intensity, and new patterns.

Good sounds

By 

from Los Angeles, CA, United States

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

The speaker has a good sound, the lighting effects are fun, the charging and micro charge is HORRIBLE, I have had to return twice, the charging port is terribly designed the wire does not lock in place and if you don't get it just right in place it does not charge, you have to fiddle around with the wire, make all these weird alterations to get it to stay in place and charge.. Ugh 3 x no charm. But the speaker is nice.

great, too bad it wont connect

By 

from Texas

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

We have had this speaker for almost 2 years. it is bright and beautiful and has amazing sound. Unfortunately it has been a constant struggle to get the stupid thing to connect to my windows 10 computer. Many times it will just not connect, after having been previously connected and no amount of troubleshooting helps. its great but in the last 2 years we only get to use it 1 out of every 3 attempts.

Great Loud sound but background music too loud

By 

from Pa

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

Bought the pulse at the airport last weekend. The unit can really play loud but I don't always want it loud. I like background music like seascapes, guitar etc. The units volume won't go low enough. Called support and I am returning it. I am told the flip2 has better low range. I am going to visit local stores maybe demo them. JBL I would suggest adding software feature to allow better volume control on low side. Maybe an application switch that changes from indoor to outdoor use where you want it louder outside.
