JBL Pulse is rated 4.066666666666666 out of 5 by 75.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A speaker that is actually fun! Used for 1 week so haven't had experience with battary life. However, it is cool speaker that can be even better in the creative area by leveraging the LED's. Here is some suggestion: (1) Expand JBL app to include beyond patterns, such as time, date, emotional icon (happy, wild, etc.), and messages (2) Open up the API for the user community to create apps to expand the basic profile provided by JBL I was looking for a way to expand the use of the JBL pulse speaker but unable to do that. I can imagine myself writing an app that can utilize the LEDs that can later be incorporated back into the JBL app. JBL, can you help?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing. Amazing. AMAZING! Bought this today like 5 hours ago and I have been playing with it since. Its amazing. The sound quality is superb. the volume level blows my mind and is very very loud. not including what the phone volume can go to. still havent gone to max because i dont wanna blow the speakers haha. The build feels so premium and the metal and rubber feel is great. The lightshow settings and modes literally is why i bought this haha and honestly can not find a single bad thing about these speakers. They are portable and feels good in the hand. you HAVE to try this for yourself people. Its really a great bluetooth speaker! buy one. try it. and if you dont like it you can always get your money back!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NEEDS BIGGER BATTERY, CHARGE DEVICES, MIC FOR TALK I enjoy the colors really much on this speaker. Very cool very nicee.. High quality brand and all. Sounds amazing beyond amazing! It just needs a few more things to be PERFECT! Bigger battery for long lasting, charge external devices too, pick up and receive calls & answer with a button etc, & lastly a lazy man's remote or customizable remote thru iOS app etc..Also velcro somehow to hang anywhere we want it! car walls fridges, etc.. Even better pairing with other pulse like the beats to sync for louder more music in a room! Colors for Christmas a ++!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Loud sound but background music too loud 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT PRODUCT but............... Hands down.. Its a wonderful product! I'm having a great time with this new bluetooth speaker! Yes Its eyecandy and I really like that. Sound wise, the speaker sounds really good! No low bass but thats fine. There is a negative portion about this product. Its that JBL/Harmon Kardon chose NOT to include a case or protective sleeve. That's a bit mind boggling because the $150 JBL CHARGE comes with a protective case/sleeve. Come on guys really?? $200 for this and you can't even include a cover for this???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around a fantastic product I recently received this speaker as a present and I am greatly pleased. It is very easy to use and extremely worth getting. I sound is great, very very loud and also very fit to your own desire. The led lights are not customizable and the fact that they can go with the beat of the music is not the strongest of the many qualities, but the options available otherwise are more than fantastic. I would without a doubt recommend this to anyone looking for something to this field of music entertainment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. And the app is on google play. I got this delivered today, and haven't stopped playing with it. I hope they add more light patterns to the app though. You can only get the color pink when it's set to certain patterns. I wish I could get a pink/purple effect. It's loud enough that I think I'll be able to hear it over loud hot tub jets. I feel bad for anyone that bought that junky pill. Everything works with my note 2 just fine. Please add Pink as an option! It also sounds clear at max volume. I'm very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't play in stereo. I'm not as happy with the Pulse as I thought I would be. I connect from my iPhone 5C and the Pulse only seems to be playing one sound channel, rather than playing in stereo. Thinking the problem might be with my iPhone, I connected an mp3 player directly to the Pulse, and the sound is the same. I hear one channel loud and clear, but the other channel is very faint. I'd give the Pulse 5 stars if I was hearing stereo rather than almost mono.

Does this work smoothly with iPhone 4s or iMac?

It should work smoothly with any bluetooth enabled devices. For your iPhone 4s or iMac, you might need to update corresponding software like the operating system.
