Bluesound PULSE FLEX 2i Portable Wireless Streaming Speaker Overview

With a 25-watt built-in DirectDigital amplifier, newly designed 3.5-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter, the FLEX 2i pumps out deceptively big Bluesound sound from a tiny cabinet. And the BluOS Controller app (free for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire) pairs two for satisfying stereo – or combines a set of FLEX 2i’s with the SOUNDBAR 2i for wireless, wonderful multichannel surround. The baby of the upgraded Generation 2i line, the PULSE FLEX 2i shares much of the superior technology that makes Bluesound a top brand in high-res whole-house entertainment. Advanced dual-band Wi-Fi, Qualcomm’s aptX Bluetooth and Apple’s new AirPlay 2 (via firmware update) make for clean streaming from home networks, dozens of Internet-based jukeboxes and radio stations, and your favorite phone, portable or PC. Optical/analog and USB inputs and a headphone output let you listen how and where you wish. Like all in the 2i line, the FLEX 2i decodes the highest-resolution music files with ease, including the latest MQA format.And with Amazon Alexa integration on the way, you’ll be able to just ask for your favorite track among thousands

Small, until you listen

The newly redesigned drivers and DirectDigital amplifier in the PULSE FLEX 2i pump out serious sound. The 1-inch tweeter and 3.5-inch woofer are bi-amplified by the 25-watt amp for clean, clear volume and extended frequency response from 45Hz-20kHz. What Hi-Fi?, in its 4-star review, compared it to the previous FLEX: “We are treated to that same confident, full-bodied presentation, only now more detailed and spacious.”

Top tech right down the line

Bluesound packs the PULSE FLEX 2i tight with the kind of wireless technology that makes its entire Gen 2i series superior. The latest dual-band Wi-Fi, Qualcomm music-quality Bluetooth aptX, and Apple AirPlay 2 mean that you’re getting the best reception, from any device, with the least interference. And the FLEX 2i handles the highest resolution music files, including FLAC, WAV, AIFF and the latest MQA, with sampling rates up to 192kHz.

Tap into the universal jukebox

Connect easily to your own collection on your home server or via PC network shares. Connect to dozens of Internet radio stations through TuneIn, iHeart, Calm Radio, Slacker and Radio Paradise. And select songs seamlessly from the top celestial jukeboxes including Tidal, Deezer, Spotify, Amazon, Pandora and many more.

Intuitive and convenient controls

Bluesound’s operating system was built for wireless from the bottom up. A free download (iOS, Android, Kindle Fire), the BluOS Controller App ties together every enabled piece of equipment in your home, makes set-up a snap, flips effortlessly through all your files and sources, and gives you fingertip control of the whole ecosystem. The FLEX 2i adds five preset buttons on top for quick access to your favorite tracks, playlists or channels, as well as transport and volume buttons. Amazon Alexa voice control is in development. And with AirPlay 2 capability coming via update, you’ll soon be able to chat with Siri as well.

Whole-home integration

Not only does the the BluOS Controller app puts your home in your hand, the FLEX 2i also is flexible enough to support smart-home systems including Crestron, Control 4, RTI, ELAN, URC, Push, Lutron and iPort, with a front-panel IR sensor built in for remote options. And with auxiliary optical/analog and USB inputs, as well as a Gigabit Ethernet jack and headphone output, you can connect the FLEX 2i to whatever equipment you own.
