JBL Pulse 3

 

The JBL Pulse 3 delivers solid Bluetooth audio, but the main event is its LED light show, which makes the speaker a tad pricier than alternatives with similar sound quality.

Solid audio performance with rich lows and crisp, well-defined highs. LED light show is unique and entertaining. Waterproof.

Better sound quality is available for the same price.

The JBL Pulse 3 is priced like a speaker that might have some sub-bass power to it, but it sounds more like a speaker that costs about $50 less in that regard. That extra cost money goes into the design—those dancing LEDs aren't free, and neither is...

This may be the coolest new Bluetooth speaker at CES 2017

 

JBL's new speaker is fully waterproof, which means it can put on a light show underwater.

JBL Pulse 3 review

 

More a party light than a speaker

Balanced sound profile ; 360-degree sound ; Built-in microphone

Short battery life ; Reliance on Connect+ ; No NFC

The JBL Pulse 3 has a great sound, but it’s still not the best sounding speaker in its territory. But, what makes up for the price is its water resistance and the cool party lights The JBL Pulse 3 offers an attractive party light feature, which might...

JBL Pulse 3 review: This weatherproof Bluetooth speaker puts on a fun light show

 

An IPX7 weatherization rating means this speaker can survive a dip in the pool, but it's audio performance left us wanting.

Undeniably attractive light show ; Can be linked with better sounding JBL speakers ; IPX7 weather-proofing

Pricey given the sound quality ; Distinctly mediocre sound

The Pulse 3 provides an attractive, waterproof light show that is indeed eye-catching. It also ticks all the boxes in terms of Bluetooth speaker features, such as speakerphone functionality. But its weatherization and all that bling comes at the...

JBL Pulse 3 review: The JBL light show returns with waterproofing

 

The JBL Pulse 3 is the 3rd generation of JBL's popular Pulse series and this time you won't have to worry about the Pulse getting wet.

This is a great speaker with a fun light show. It sounds really nice but does lack the low end that I prefer. I would recommend this to those who aren’t in need of heavy bass and prefer a more flat sound.

JBL Pulse 3 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The JBL Pulse 3 is the successor to the excellent JBL Pulse 2, retaining the LED lightshow finish that proved previously to be a well-integrated feature rather than just a gimmick. Will the JBL Pulse 3 speaker build on the strengths of its...

JBL Pulse 3 Review

 

The JBL Pulse 3 is available for about Rs 15,000. The bluetooth speaker is waterproof and puts on an amazing light show

Well built ; LED lights are elegant on the device ; 360-degree audio ; Built-in Siri/Assistant support ; Waterproof

Battery life could have been better ; Some similar priced speakers have better sound

This has to be the best LED implementation on a JBL Pulse speaker. It looks like a Lava Lamp and can easily blend into your home decor. It can also be an attraction at a picnic or a party with the light show. The battery life suffers, clocking in under...

JBL Pulse 3 im Test

 

Der JBL Pulse 3 Bluetooth-Lautsprecher verfügt über eine integrierte Lichtshow und kommt auf eine adäquate Laufzeit von rund elf Stunden. Die insgesamt gute Soundqualität wird durch den vergleichsweise hohen Preis ein wenig gedämpft. Hier gibt es...

LED-Lichtshow ; unterstützt Bluetooth 4.2 ; spritzwassergeschützt ; Freisprechfunktion

schlechtes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis ; unterdurchschnittliche Ladezeit

Esta tal vez sea la nueva bocina Bluetooth más 'cool' de CES 2017

 

La bocina JBL Pulse 3 es totalmente impermeable, lo que significa que puedes llevar el espectáculo de luces bajo el agua.

JBL Pulse 3 im Test: Der Disco-Lautsprecher

 

Bereits die dritte Generation des beliebten JBL Pulse hat Hersteller Harman anlässlich der CES im Januar 2017 präsentiert. Ab August ist er endlich auch zu kaufen. Wir hatten die Chance, den Pulse 3 vorab zu testen. Wie gut ist der Bluetooth-Lautsprecher?

wasserdicht, Party-Spaß dank integrierter LED-Lichtorgel

etwas schwacher Bass

Ein Hingucker auf jeder Party, der auch klanglich zu überzeugen weiß.
