I purchased this product for Christmas myself. I love it, and here are the pros and cons for the speaker:

Pros:
-Amazing sound quality, better than the original since it has the two bass radiators on the side (it's really fun when you put water on top of the bass radiator and see the water 'effects')
-Really loud even thought it's small
-Love the light show, and it's the whole reason why I bought this instead of the other speakers
-I like the JBL Prism, so you can put any colors as long you face the lens at it.
-Connect up to 3 Bluetooth devices
-Waterproof, so I don't have to worry about water splashes on my speaker.
-Long battery, so I can either listen to it for a long time or charge my phone
-Decent mic

Cons:
-If you place the speaker horizontally, it stays in one place but not as solid as the JBL Charge 2+.
-No equalizer mode when you use the light, this is a huge disappointment because the previous JBL Pulse HAVE this MODE.
-The canvas lighting that gives text doesn't work very well. it would be nice if it works
-You can't change a specific color that you want without the color lens, and they don't have it in the app also
-Pretty expensive

Overall, this is a good speaker, and I hope that the lighting features can improve since we have an app for it on the phone. The best lighting mode that I like is the equalizer mode, and I would chose that over any modes they have in the app. Thank you for reading my review :)

The quality of sound has improved a great deal, I also like the doubled battery life. The quality of lights are improved as well. These are all really great steps but I'm very disappointed in the small things missing that made the old one great despite the lacking sound quality and so so light show. First and formost the light shows what happened to the equalizer and club mode that light reacted to the source of sound, it's really just sad. The original app was much simpler to control with color shading and intensity (very inconvenient to dig through my closet for the color sensor thing to get pink or purple shades I want to use and imagine if I'm actually out at bonfire?? Not many selections in the woods??) Apparently you can no longer control brightness/intensity annoying for light reading at night when you wish to dimmer lighting effect. I also agree whole heartedly with the other reviewer mentioned while the interactivity of creating your on firefly pattern is neat, this is something I would rarely use unless actively showing someone hey look what I can do, I don't want to constantly fumble with this to get cool patterns, there for with out the old feature such as equalizer that synced to music the light shows are actually pretty boring. So this a double edged sword while it improved one spectrum it complete left behind what made the old one fun. Hopefully they'll release an updated version which allows you to control color and intensity without having to use the sensor until then I will be returning it.

Comments about JBL PULSE2 Splashproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

I just received my JBL pulse 2 in the mail and I absolutely love it. I've had the regular pulse and the charge to plus and I like this one very much more. The lights are beautiful and the sound is very clear with just the right amount of bass.

Great sounding speaker.

By iamdjdz

from Liverpool, United Kingdom

Comments about JBL PULSE2 Splashproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

I bought this speaker as I wanted a portable speaker to work with spotify from my phone. I was tempted to go with a Bose or Sonos multiroom lower range speaker that has direct compatibility but I wanted the portability. When I tested the pulse 2 I was very impressed with the sound quality, similar to the others but with (in my opinion) a more natural and still nice bass. After having had the speaker now for a week I have to say that I am still very impressed. I've still not had an opportunity to listen to the Pulse 2 at high volume for long but at lower volumes and with music from dance, rap, rock amongst others it has proven to be clear, full and punchy. I have to add that I'm not bothered about the function of the lights as all I wanted to buy was a portable speaker, however they did tip the decision over the edge from the Bose bluetooth speaker. They are cool, the app works fine and it's nice to have them on while the music plays but for me they weren't and aren't the best thing about this speaker. What is important to me is sound, portability and durability and I feel that the Pulse 2 has all three in good amounts.

sound is good, but...

By Minnesota man

from MN, United States

Comments about JBL PULSE2 Splashproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

Pulse 2 has very good sound, but I am alittle disapionted that the lights are not sound activated. there is no control on speed of lights so it can be adjusted to match the beat. An upgrade jbl should consider making... otherwise it seems to be a solid speaker.

Much better than original

By MusicFan

from Undisclosed

Comments about JBL PULSE2 Splashproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

I have the original model (as well as many other portable speakers) and feel this is much better sonically. The bass response is especially improved. And the light show seems improved as far as the actual quality of the light. But the original seems to offer better control of the lights (with its App). That combo allows changing the colors and the intensity and the speed of each effect. The Pulse 2 with its App does offer some neat control but usually just one control (i.e. speed). Plus, the "real time" control offered by the "Connect" App is fine when you are actively using it but once you stop tapping the screen of the phone controlling the App, the light effect on the Pulse becomes rather boring with relatively little movement or change in the colors. Several effects are fairly static. And that the lights don't react to the source material is a shame. Perhaps latter software updates might allow more control? I'd try that out but i cannot seem to figure out how to update the software by "tapping" the speaker as direcetd by the App. Tap them where? Tap them together? Tap one speaker with my hand? The phone? A magic wand? Because of the quality sound, I am interested in buying a second unit to hear how it sounds in stereo. But I am not sure if the unit will operate in true stereo when connected to an iPod or CD playervia a 3.5mm stereo cord (instead of streaming music from a phone via Bluetooth). I would like to find out if the combo of the Aux in cable and using the phone simply as a remote control for putting the speakers into Stereo mode works.

Updating!

By Stewie

from Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa

Comments about JBL PULSE2 Splashproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

It's an amazing speaker and I'm loving it the only problem that I have found so far is updating the speaker? A week ago I had the app and followed the downloading instructions on my iPad and after 4 attempts of the speaker stopping the update at 10.1% I knew something was up but still don't know??? I've also tried using an IPhone to update it but that's also stopping at 10.1%? Please if anyone knows anything that can help I will be much appreciated.

Miss the sound activated equalizer light effect

By ferenc t

from North Eastern PA

Comments about JBL PULSE2 Splashproof Bluetooth Wireless Speaker:

JBL made the LED light show much less dramatic on the pulse 2 ! The camera is not a very practical way to create a diversified lighting effect. I would think the added LED's would have made the lighting effect more dramatic. No oohs nor ahs with this model. I suggest remove the useless camera and return to the dancing lights controlled with the built in frequency effect that made the Pulse 1 so famous. Why replace a great effect with a complicated boring one? Was it solely to prove you have installed a camera? I found the camera does not add anything. In fact it severely limits the chromatic excitement compared to the older Pulse 1. If you want more bass just place the speaker in a corner or open a large book and put it behind the Pulse 1 to channel the low frequencies toward the listener. Having designed and created many lighting effects, sometimes simplicity works better than too much technology. Don't forget some of the most stunning lighting effects are enhanced by the dark spaces in between. That's why I prefer the original light show on the Pulse 1. A terrific fix would be JBL adding the capability to connect several Pulse 1's together with sound and LED's synced together. If so I would buy 4 of them - one for each corner of my room.... Awesome!!!
