I bought this back in December and I have been loving it since. This speaker packs a punch with its bass and sound quality is crystal clear. This speaker is also very portable and more with the carring case. The light shows were the main focus for why I bought it as I could use it when I have some friends over and just enjoy music and the light show. With the JBL Connect app, you can program the lightshows, but recently there was an update to the speakers firmware giving it two more light shows, Equalizer and Waves. I was astonished by how awesome these two light shows were especially the Equilizer. 5/5

great sound quality
Just got this speaker and I love the sound quality. For the price I paid at around $150 it is worth the money. Battery life is great at 10 hours with the light show playing. It's pretty loud for its size and has a descent range on the Bluetooth. The only problems I have found is the prism doesn't ever change the color scheme. 2nd is that no one makes a case for it that is designed to allow you to play music while in the carrying case. Only found hard carrying cases which don't meet my needs since I got this to strap to my fishing and discgolf bag for on the go music.

good combination of sights and sounds
I had the original JBL pulse I got same time last year (before Christmas); and this new model is definitely a level up with regards to build quality and audio... love the new LED light show; and the new JBL connect app is amazing; you can actually pair this with another Pulse 2 or other JBL connect compatible speaker; and this one has a mic; thanks JBL for listening to us..... my one complain it is missing the equalizer effect from the first Pulse; please please bring this back.....

From reading the reviews I really expected the sound to be much better. Muddled and undefined in the middle and the low a bit week compared to others I listened to. If you go for this one it will be for the light show which is really cool. My wife loves it and wouldn't return it for anything. One note is they show it standing up but your gonna want to lay it on its side to get as much base as possible. If it's sound your interested in, go for something else.

It's an amazing speaker and I'm loving it the only problem that I have found so far is updating the speaker? A week ago I had the app and followed the downloading instructions on my iPad and after 4 attempts of the speaker stopping the update at 10.1% I knew something was up but still don't know??? I've also tried using an IPhone to update it but that's also stopping at 10.1%? Please if anyone knows anything that can help I will be much appreciated.

Great Sound... Improve quality from Pulse 1
I had the JBL Pulse 1 and the changes in the sound quality is awesome... The JBL Prism function is incredible. By the way.... for me and more costumers is important to include in an update (if is possible) more LED animations and more important... the 2 animations from Pulse 1 (Equalizer & Club). These are the real music motion that need the Pulsar 2 to feel as alive as the Pulse 1.

I like this BT speaker's capabilities, but I think it is too hyped up. The speaker is loud but not that loud and one little 3 foot fall can cause the exterior to become damaged. Within a month, the USB port cannot fit snug enough without feeling loose when charging, and my speaker (not as a result) will not turn on. The colors are cool, but wish there were more of a variety. 4/5

PLEASE CHANGE A FEW THINGS
I love this product so much I had to buy 2 of them BUT the fact that I have to go and shut off each pulse when Im not using it..its kind of annoying. I want the device to shut off itself if Im not using it for a long period of time. Instead of doing that, it just stays on until the battery dies forcing me to charge both pulse so I can use it again.....

Does this has auxiliary connection for 3.5mm devices, or is it only for Bluetooth?
The PULSE 2 has a 3.5mm AUX port which is located beside the charging port.

thinking about installing this in a project car as a temporary system. whats the heat tolerance for these? would i have a problem leaving this in my car?
The PULSE 2 is not designed to be fitted/used inside a car and exposed to heat in a long period of time. The PULSE 2 can only handle limited exposure to direct sunlight/heat. If exposed to extreme heat/sunlight it might cause the battery to overload or even explode.
