This Metronome is shaping the music accessory category of the 21st century.
What an awesome idea to reinvent the metronome and make it work via vibrations. Very innovative and yet intuitive. I ordered the Soundbrenner Pulse because I saw one of their advertisements and it immediately hooked me. I immediately loved the idea behind the concept and started comparing it to other metronomes on the market. There simply is no other metronome, that works with vibrations and there certainly are reasons for that.
Why change something that worked well and reliable for a long time? Well, because it gets boring thats why. When I think back at times I practiced with my old Wittner metronome it was very useful and helped me a lot to improve my speed. But I think the guys behind this product understood that the music industry needs a disruptive change and well, just made it happen. Their metronome combines the necessary features of an metronome as a tool to keep musicians in time and upgraded it with a ton of features to make it an customisable tool for everyone. Wanna play to a quarter beat, subdivided to a triplet on a bpm of 62? No problem, just set it up in the metronome app and feel the metronome pulsating. The app is quiet self explanatory and folks used to handle an everyday smartphone shouldn't have any problems to operate with it. It looks awesome and moreover backs up it's really outstanding design, compared to traditional metronomes, with useful features. So to speak the ability to link multiple devices together to have your whole band play in synchronisation. Wouldn't give it back and really love it.

I found out upon opening the metronome that it only works w Apple products. W/o Apple there is only one strength of vibration, which is not strong enough. I had to track somebody down w/ an Ipad and put the app on their machine. This product is definitely in its early stages. I'd wait a year and get the next version!

      Comments about Soundbrenner Pulse Wearable Metronome:

      On my second charging of this product I had an issue with connection to charger- I ended up having to leave it offset to establish connection to charge. I filmed issue and emailed company with zero response. I don't practice everyday and every time I go to use it it's dead. If it's 6hrs battery life it's counting sitting there turned off not being used. I've actually watched the battery go down a 1/4 over a 1-1 1/2 hr practice. I don't know if mine is defective since can't get company to respond but got for Christmas present 2016 and its Feb1 and only limited use due to battery. When charged it's works well which just adds to the frustration

        Excellent tool to "feel the beat"! Every musician wanting to develop a deeper level of commitment to their skill and craft should get this tool! It's a little difficult to get used to but give it a little time - the pulse will eventually rule your playing. Before you know it, you are settling in and just playing but guess what - you're not rushing or dragging. Those fast licks slow down and those slow ones speed up!

              Comments about Soundbrenner Pulse Wearable Metronome:

              As a musician and dancer I really like the idea of feeling the rhythm. I'm pretty sure, this is a new concept and people are going to love it, not only for practicing musical instruments, but also for different use cases. I can't agree on the opinion of the music teacher in the comments below. I mean yes sure, vibrations won't replace an audio signal, but this isn't what this product wants to do anyway. It simply offers you a new way of experiencing the music you play, it doesn't say, that it is the high end metronome for everyone. Personally I am impressed and use it nearly every day.

                Comments about Soundbrenner Pulse Wearable Metronome:

                The Soundbrenner Pulse offers a completely new way to practice music instruments. I bought the product, because I was looking for a metronome to define my guitar performance. My teachers were all excited, and a little bit doubtful about this new metronome (every novelty will be doubted at the beginning), when I first showed them the Pulse. Of course there is a difference between listening to an audio signal or perceiving haptic vibrations, but I think it is just a thing to learn and get used to like everything else. People need to understand first, get other people to show them that it works and then they'll try it. If you're an open minded person, this metronome can become your new best friend as it did for me. 100% recommendation.

                  Nice alternative to a click sound metronome. It's easy to use once you figured out how to do the taps. But they provide tutorials inside the app which is nice. If it would have the BPM displayed on the device itself, without having to look on your phone, I'd give it a 5.
