  • Color Change is Awesome!
    Reviewed by apalmo1 - March 12, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really wanted to hate this speaker as I always felt the pulse series was more about looks than sound quality. However after a few days of use I have changed my mind and this one sounds really good compared to prior pulse speakers. For this review I will be mainly comparing the pulse 4 to the charge 3. Sound quality on the pulse 4 is great but it could be a little better, it has good highs, and decent lows, but I feel like the mids are muted. I noticed with the pulse 4 if you push it to close to wall it doesn't sound good. The optimal place i found for this speaker is more in the middle of a room that has a roof or covering. The 360 sound will fill the room and is plenty loud for a party. However outside with the top of the speaker facing the sky (no ceiling or cover to reflect the sound) the pulse 4 sounded good but but not as wonderful as it did in my kitchen. During the daylight the color LEDs get washed out and are sorta pointless to use, there is a button on the top to disable the LEDs which helps save power. At night time the LEDs are very nice and soothing, I can't wait to use this during summer evenings with friends. The Pulse 4 is very heavy (in a good way) and seems very well built/durable. The dimension are similar to the charge 3. Pros: Good Sound Party mode (didn't work with my charge 3 sadly) Fun to look at Good Battery Life USB C Waterproof Cons: A little pricey Mids are muted no charging block, just the usb cable no AUX input JBL connect app that is used to change colors or patterns sometimes doesn't connect to pulse. Overall I do like this speaker and this is a great party/dorm room speaker. However I prefer my charge 3 a little more as it has more features and (to me) is better sounding and cost less. The Pulse 4 is for sure a party speaker that makes your music entertaining to listen too.

  • Amazing sound and lights
    Reviewed by Jwill_n - March 9, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Bluetooth speaker is simply amazing from the lights to the 360 degree sound I have never used a Bluetooth speaker of higher quality or beauty. The passive bass radiator provides a deep rich sound, and the many lights options keep the party going. The battery life has been amazing even with the lights and heavy use and the usb type c makes charging easier than ever. The build quality feels top notch I wouldn’t be afraid to drop this speaker and the water resistance adds even extra security. I cannot recommend this speaker enough nothing else to even compares.

  • Fun to use
    Reviewed by Librow - March 20, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a really nice unit. It goes all day and into the night. I like that it has the ipx7 rating because I like all of my valuable electronics to be waterproof, just in case. I also like the buttons on the top that are easy to find to make any playing adjustments. It provides plenty of sound for any room, while still able to be heard well outside. So basically, the highs are great at ANY volume, the mids are best at any point under 70%, and the lows are best between like 30 and 70%. A really important point is that there isn’t any distortion. The colors are really great and help light up the room. Being able to change the colors and affects with the connect app is really nice. I know it has the party boost where it can link with other party boost devices but this is the only part boost I currently own.

  • Looks cool, but it's not.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by AdamT24 - August 14, 2021

    Lacking in bass, and the speaker cracked when it fell on the ground. I'd recommend getting one without the glass display and light show.
