JBL Pulse 3 WhatGear Review

So you can mix and match your JBL Connect plus products. For example I have the JBL Flip 4 and by simply pushing the connect plus button on the device they will connect together. It’s really that easy. Not only can you sync the audio but you can also sync the light show patterns across your pulse 3’s. One more cool feature I should mention, if you want to quickly change the lights to another pattern/colour you can simply pick and shake it.

The Pulse 3 uses Bluetooth 4.2 with aptX which basically means you get a much better Bluetooth streaming experience than older portable devices. So of course because this is a heavyweight hitter of a portable speaker it does need some considerable power. Inside the JBL Pulse 3 is a 6000mah battery that takes around 4.5 hours to charge and will last up to 12hrs continuous playing with the impressive led light shows. The Pulse 3 weighs in at around 960 grams and is built to stand vertical with the dimensions being approx 22cm tall and 9cm wide. It’s presence will not go unnoticed.

So I really think this a perfect speaker if your going on a beach holiday. The build quality with its acrylic, rubber and tight weave mesh makes this thing incredibly durable and it can resist dust and sand… And its IPX7 rating means it’s waterproof… Now I know what you wanna see, so I threw it in the pool check out the video 

 

Now let’s look at the on board controls and ports. It has a power button, volume controls, a play and pause button. Bluetooth button a JBL connect plus button, and a dedicated button to switch the light patterns. It also has 5 leds to indicate exactly how much battery life is left. Underneath this rubber flap is its USB b charging port and an analogue input. It has everything you need to proceed with your listening experience.

So one more cool feature that will be available through the JBL Connect app is that you can set the pulse 3 to work with Google assistant and apple’s siri. Turning it essentially into a smart home device. A good feature I hear you say!

That’s it for this JBL pulse 3 #WhatGear Review and this is a world’s first for me. This is the 1st time I have reviewed a product before its official release date. I want to say huge thank you to JBL for that, you guys are legendary. Also a big thank you to you to you for watching/reading this review. I just want to say One last thing… doesn’t this kind of resemble one those precious stones from Indiana Jones Temple of doom…?

 Anyway I believe this a great sound investment you should definitely go and check this one out.
