  • Good overall sound with decent bass
  • Good battery life (10 hours)
  • Splashproof design


  • Average light show effects

Bottom Line

The JBL Pulse 2's light show effects may leave some users unfulfilled, but it does have good music playback qualities and a decent battery life.

The JBL Pulse 2 has received positive reviews for its overall sound, its decent battery life (10 hours with music only and 5 hours with the light show on), its good bass for the speaker type, its overall loudness and its splashproof design. While the light show was well received by many, a few users were unhappy that the lights were not as responsive and interactive with music as they had hoped for. The JBL Pulse 2 has all the makings of a quality Bluetooth speaker in terms of its audio, battery life and its ability to play loudly, but the light show effect may disappoint some users.
