Pulse is a complete Partybust!

1 out of 5 rating

SoundClown666 · 1 month ago

The JBL Pulse “Partyboost” function is a complete joke. It often disconnects and transmits a high pitch feedback sound. It is way over priced for a small speaker with lights.

Customer Support - 1 month ago

Thank you for your feedback. Here are some things to try that often fix the Partyboost issue. Always have a clear line of sight between your Bluetooth speakers and source device (Smartphone/tablet/PC, etc). Be aware of obstacles in front of your devices. Try to shut down products that have Bluetooth, but are not being used. If these steps do not fix the problem, perform a reset on the headphones following the instructions found in this link. https://bit.ly/3tXzc9t

Great sound but cackling noise

Mwill1953 · 2 months ago

I bought two of these. Whether I use one or both the music often interrupted by a cackling interference sound. Any suggestions on how to deal with this problem?

Thanks for reaching out. Here are some things to try that often fix audio issues. Make sure Headset/Speaker are sufficiently charged. Restart devices and Unpair them to refresh the connection. Try using a different music app (iTunes, YouTube, Spotify, etc.). If using an equalizer, please set it to default mode or turn it off. Try using a different Source Device (Laptop/PC/Tablet/Smartphone). Check if there are any physical damage/s to the speaker unit. Make sure the device is not near any cause of interference such as other wireless/BT devices. Perform a reset. If none of these troubleshooting steps fixes the issue, contact Customer Service at: https://bit.ly/2WocMfi

I got 2 of them for stereo. They are about 12 feet and can work with Stereo very good. But I had to buy 2 bluetooth and put left and right on each bluetooth and then it works. They don't work good to do stereo with out 2 bluetooth's. Junk.

My son saved up for this speaker.He loved it while it worked. After abut tow years, poer buttons and bluetooth buttons no lnger worked rendering it useless! Naturally, JBL/Harma said, it is not under warranty so they can' help. Said to take to a service center and pay for repairs! Horrible support, They don't' stand behind their products. They said "sorry but"....Never buy this form them. There are better products and companies that will stand behind their products, even after 1 Year.

Battery life kinda sucks!

2 out of 5 rating

Kelli1017 · 9 months ago

We used to have the JBL charge 2. My husband left it on the hood of his work truck right at the windshield and he drove off and it was never to be seen again. I don’t get upset about much but that one really got to me! That was the best speaker we have ever had. We were reluctant to get the pulse 4 simply because of the price. But we bit the bullet. It’s a great speaker with great sound quality but the battery life is terrible. Even when we turn off the light show, it dies quickly. The JBL charge 2 still had great battery life being 5 years old. It held up so great! Wish I had it back. Someone out there probably found it and is enjoying the heck out of it.

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Love the speaker quality and the light display is beautiful, but if I were you I wouldn’t get white. After having mine a little over a year, the white is starting to yellow pretty bad.

Plain not really what I expected

I thought this would be way more colorful and have better light show but it was just plain. The sound is not as good as my other speakers either. Return the product.

How do I know the speaker is charging ?? Does the light turn on ?? 

Leon at Customer Service - 11 months

Our JBL Pulse 4 has a battery indicator where the charging port is located. Once the battery indicator is fully lit, the speaker is now fully charged.

If the speaker automatically shuts off and I’m in bed and i connect to it on my phone, will it automatically turn on and connect or will I have to get up and turn it on and then connect my phone?

Jan at Customer Support - 1 year

Thank you for your question. No, that isn't possible. You first have to switch on the speaker. Kind regards

Can I leave the speaker plugged in most of the time and use it? Or will that degrade the battery life? 

Jan at Customer Support - 1 year

Thank you for your question. Yes, after a while every battery does degrade a little bit. I would recommend not to keep it plugged in all the time. Kind regards

Using the app I selected a color but the lights still cycle through several - they aren’t even shades of the same color. It keeps going back to multicolored after less than a min. Is this an app issue?

Please make sure that you're using the Type-C USB cable that came with your speaker. You can also try checking a different cable and make sure that it's inserted into the port securely. If you need more help, please reach out to our Customer Support via call or chat, we're here to help.
