JBL Pulse 3 Overview

Sometimes, you can get away with judging a book by its cover — or in this case, a speaker by its exterior.

The JBL Pulse 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker is more of a two-for-one deal: On one side, you get a wireless device that allows you to stream your favorite tunes. On the other, you have a glowing LED display that synchronizes with your music and doubles as a modern day lava lamp. And we really dig that.

As the third version of this model, we’re also happy to see some notable improvements on its predecessor (the Pulse 2): an extended battery life (up to 12 hours), improved audio and an IPX7 waterproof rating so it’ll survive a quick rain storm or dip in the pool. (We did a little dance when we found that out, too.)

Couple all of those techie perks with a rad 360° lightshow, and rest assured you’ll be the life of any party.

How many watts is the JBL pulse put out?
A shopper on Mar 30, 2018
  The manufacturer matches the amplifier to the speakers to get the maximum energy output but does not specify a wattage. It gets very loud.
