JBL’s Pulse light speaker has passed the 4th generation. During the annual new product launch event in 2019, JBL has built a whole room with light walls made from these Pulse 4, for see how passionate they are about this speaker. Please watch the video on hand:
Originally a light speaker, the box was also made very colorful. The speaker accessory only has a USB-C charging cord, not the charger like the previous generation
It can be said that Pulse 4 is the perfect successor of Pulse 3 when JBL has decided to use the whole speaker body as a lamp, the previous speaker part is removed. Overall, Pulse 4 is smaller but heavier than Pulse 3
All JBL buttons are now placed around the top of the Pulse 4, important buttons that have a backlight for easy viewing and pressing in the dark.
The main sound emitting part is now located on the top of the speaker. 3 drivers on the previous generation are now only 1
The bottom of the speaker acts as a small subwoofer with the stylized JBL logo
The back of the speaker has a small capsule-shaped component, on which there is a small white LED that displays the battery capacity and USB-C charging hole
The whole speaker is embedded in a transparent plastic glass, looks like a glass containing light, really very very beautiful.
The lighting effects on Pulse 4 can be customized by pressing a button on the speaker body or by software on the phone that is connected to the speaker. There are a total of 5 different effects, but inside each effect, the user can also customize a lot of colors for that effect, making the display of the speaker highly customizable.
Effect Equaliser: Colorful pillars of light undulating to the beat of the music
Effect Wave: Light will move in the shape of gentle ripples
Effect Spiritual: Large and thick beams of light appear randomly
Effect Fire: Motion of light like burning flames
Optional motion effects: users will choose motion effects (up to 3 types) to mix their own
Pulse 4 sacrificed the speaker space for the lights, not having three 360-degree drivers like the previous generation, but now only a single 2.25 “speaker is placed on the head. you will immediately realize that the sound on the Pulse 4 is not as loud and powerful as the Pulse 3. This will lead to the possibility that if the Pulse 4 is played in open spaces or rooms that are too wide or where there is too much noise, the Pulse 4 will not with Pulse 3.
However, the sound quality of Pulse 4 is still very good, clear and warm
Pulse 4 works very well in tight, quiet spaces (like bedrooms).
I use the speaker light to listen to soft music when I sleep, it helps me sleep better and dreams better
It is also suitable for you to take with you on trips, listen to music and chill with friends
To make it easier to imagine, you can understand the sound quality of Pulse 4 is like the sound quality of Apple’s AirPods. It’s not really that great, but it is easy to listen to for all types of music.
