The Review on JBL Pulse 4 Speaker
I’ve been reading a lot of JBL product reviews lately and I’m not even nearly done! The next up on the list is the JBL Pulse 4. It’s a visually stunning Bluetooth speaker with a hefty enough price tag. Is it worth spending your hard-earned money on? Let’s find out. Design
The JBL Pulse 4 is all about design. Well, sound is also clear, but while there are many great speakers on the market and even other great JBL speakers, the design is the specific reason many people consider the Pulse 4.
The speaker also acts as a fantastic light show and the transparent housing is also home to a 360-degree LED light system. It looks beautiful when up and run. The LEDs are bright and flow seamlessly into each other. It’s like a color HD screen that dances in sync with your music. JBL promises 12 hours of tuning into the Pulse 4, but turn it around up up to 11 with the lights on full blast will lower that price. You can also turn off the speaker backlight to save battery power. If you just don’t like the lights, check out the JBL Link.
One drawback of the design is that the plastic case is an absolute fingerprint trap. Now that the speaker weighs 1.27 kg, it can hardly be considered a portable party speaker. Instead, bring it and leave it and one to be carried around town. So maybe you won’t mind so much after all.
With each step back, the JBL Pulse 4 takes several steps forward. While people in warmer climates may wonder if you can use these poolside, here in Ireland we’re probably more concerned that the speaker will end up in the rain. Anyway, the good news is that the Pulse 4 is IPX7 waterproof. That means it can sit up up to one meter deep in fresh water for thirty minutes. Advertisement break!
Finally, two points for attention in the design department. As has become the norm for everything, it is powered by a USB-C port. A more unusual decision by JBL was to omit port AUX. The only way you play music through this speaker is via Bluetooth. An important point if you thought this would be a nice addition to your RBG gaming light setup. Sound
Sorry. I have a terrible habit of not tackling sound first when it comes to speakers, especially when there’s something fun and sexy like this LED light show to talk about. But don’t let that distract from the fact that this speaker is a winner when it comes to quality and impact. The only complaints you’re likely to have in the noise department will come from your neighbors.
Most impressive is the bass response. Turn the speaker over when you play to the end with a large exclamation mark and you will see the speaker bounce off the music.
If you have a pair of these speakers laying around, or like the most likely scenario, two friends are rocking up to the same grill with the Pulse 4, you can daisy-chain the speakers. Now you have a speaker for left and right audio.
For the price, you might be surprised to learn that there’s no Chromecast Audio or AirPlay, nor is there any kind of support for smart assistants. This is a pure Bluetooth speaker designed to phone up to for playing tunes. I should probably say there’s no call handling feature either, but I’m not too sure if that’s a big deal. The JBL Connect app
The JBL Connect app is one final trick up JBL’s sleeve. Surprisingly, there are no EQ options here. Perhaps a sign that this speaker, despite being very good in terms of audio, is not aimed at audiophiles. Reasonable, as the main draw is the light show. And within the app you can control and adjust that light show. The JBL Connect app with light controls for the Pulse 4
Here you can also connect a second Pulse 4 speaker for PartyBoost and, on a duller note, update your speaker. There is probably an update waiting for you, but that will improve connectivity with different devices. The : Is the JBL Pulse 4 worth buying?
This is a really tough call. Is the speaker great? Absolutely. The light show is slightly different and in terms of sound quality the Pulse 4 is solid with plenty of pumping bass to get your party going whether you’re in the kitchen or in the garden.
However, all of this costs in the margin of €185 if you buy on Amazon.co.uk or €229 if you choose it up in Harvey Norman (they can also match price based on Amazon, so get your arm in line).
With no extra smarts built in, it’s a tough sell, but once you take the plunge with an informed decision, this speaker is unlikely to let you down. Likewise, if you look at this and think “that’s the perfect birthday present for little Timmy or Tricia”, I can’t imagine they’ll be disappointed with a speaker they can show off to others.
