JBL Pulse 3 review


A party speaker that sounds great

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

Short battery life ; Reliance on Connect+ ; No smartphone charging

The JBL Pulse 3’s light show may be a gimmick but thankfully its sound quality doesn’t suffer for it. While not the most portable speaker, those who want a great-sounding speaker and a conversation starter will enjoy the Pulse 3. The JBL Pulse 3 was a...

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...

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.

Nice sleek design ; Great build quality ; Fun light show ; Waterproof

Lacks some low end ; Light show doesn't really completely sync with the music

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


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 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.

JBL Pulse 3 review: muzikale lavalamp - TechPulse


De Pulse 3 trakteert je op een unieke lichtshow, maar daar betaal je ook wel de prijs voor.

Solide audiokwaliteit ; Unieke lichtshow met LED ; Waterdicht

TEST: JBL Pulse 3 – Hochwertiger, 20 Watt starker portabler Bluetooth-Lautsprecher mit per App steuerbaren Lichteffekten


Wenden wir uns den Steuerungsmöglichkeiten per App zu. Es gibt verschiedene Lichtspiele, die sich hinsichtlich der Darstellungsart unterscheiden: Equalizer, Rave, Regenbogen, Feuer, sowie personalisiert. Bei „personalisiert“ kann man bis zu 3 Muster...

Der JBL Pulse 3 überzeugt durch das innovative Lichteffekt-Konzept, das sich bequem und zielsicher per App verwenden lässt. Auch klanglich tritt der Pulse 3 stark auf: Pegelfest, räumlich dicht und impulstreu bleibt kaum ein Wunsch offen. Der Teufel...
