with so many Bluetooth speakers flooding the market, it becomes a daunting task for manufacturers and users alike to stand out from the crowd, but it seems like JBL might have the answer to this ‘pressing’ issue and it comes in the form of JBL Pulse High-Fidelity Wireless Speaker. at a glance, its cylindrical form factor may lead one to believe it is the Charge, but reassure that the Pulse is not the Charge and it is so named for good reason. the Pulse readily offers JBL-quality audio with 2x 6W of stereo audio output delivered through two 40mm drivers and a custom-tuned bass port, plus an innovative multi-LED light show to add some visual vibes to your on-the-go partying. seriously, we never thought we would say this, but we kind of like the idea of pulsating light.
out-of-the-box, the Pulse offers you with 5 pre-programmed light patterns to get your started, but custom light show can also be programmed to suit the tunes. if those aren’t enough, more light themes can be downloaded and you can switch between the light themes at a touch of the button. other features include wireless Bluetooth stereo streaming, ease of pairing with NFC and a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to 10 hours of music playback or 5 hours of music and light show. so, expect some serious music prowess and dazzling light show the next time you party with this little guy. the JBL Pulse High-Fidelity Wireless Speaker is available from JBL web store, as well as Best Buy and Sprint, and will set you back at $200 a pop.
