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.

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.

Defective

By 

from Houston, TX, United States

Comments about JBL Pulse Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

Received it as a Christmas gift, it hasn't even been 3 months later and the speaker randomly turns off. Whenever I check, it is fully charged but while playing music it just says "Power Off" and I can't figure out why. Extremely disappointed in this product. I wish they would make higher quality products.

Very Excellent Speaker!

By 

from Arkansas City, KS, United States

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!
