JBL Pulse 2 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 212.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality sound and durability Ok so I own 4 of these pulse 2 speakers. They're amazing! Great sound and very durable. Just one question tho. Are they just regular connect or are they connect+?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mini USB port is terrible Just after my warranty ran out I was not able to make it charge anymore or power up when plugged in. I took it apart and soldered the cord right too the board. The speaker looks like heck, but it works. Now today my kids charge3 ( the "underwater speaker) stopped charging or working when plugged in. It was their Christmas gift from me. I guess I will be hacking that one up too. But that is my fault, because I left it up to them to register their speaker. I realize things break, but for both speakers to fail in the exact same way sounds like a manufacturer issue. Very disappointing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this speaker! This speaker has crystal clear sound and it is loud enough for any party! I have had many compliments on the quality of sound when others have heard it. It is definitely my favorite!

Will pulse 2 get connect+ update

Asked by: Taraskasymov
The hardware used in the Pulse 2 is different from that in the newer products, which come with JBL Connect+. We have been testing with different JBL Connect speakers ( Flip 3, Xtreme, Charge 3, Pulse 2 ). Only the JBL Charge 3 is compatible with JBL Connect+ once you have updated it's firmware.

I'm having the same issue. The cable is perfectly fine but the charging port seems loose when I plug in the cable. It stopped charging as if it's not touching when plugged in and so it either slowly charges or doesn't charge at all. Right now it's dead

Can I play music while charger is plugged?

Asked by: RoyB
Hi! Yes, it is perfectly fine to use the Pulse 2 to play music while charging. Just take note that the longer time that the speaker is used while charging, the time to reach a full charge will be longer as well.

I knocked my Pulse 2 accidentally. Now it doesn't work or turn on when I press the Power "On" button. The charging function is unaffected.

I have the pulse 2, and it keeps doing this flashing thing where the whole thing is lit and flashes every second-along with the sun-looking button. It will not connect to my phone. If I push the button to change light pattern (sun-looking)itdoes nothing.

How can I connect 3 different pulse 2 speakers?

Asked by: hurley996
Unfortunately, only a maximum of (2) Pulse 2 speakers can be connected together using the Connect feature. All you have to do is connect one of your speakers to the audio source. Once its connected, press the Connect button on both speakers and they should connect together, playing the same song simultaneously. If you encounter any difficulty in doing so, please submit a case request at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.
