Bringing the iconic 360-degree LED wraparound of its predecessor to the next level, the JBL Pulse 4 ticks the boxes of a powerhouse portable speaker on top of delivering a light show.

The JBL Pulse 4 retains its IPX7 water resistance to up to three meters, along with powerful 360-degree audio, Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, and the capability to connect to up to 100 compatible JBL speakers through PartyBoost.

It also delivers 12 hours of playback with a single 3.5-hour charge via USB-C port. Just like on the JBL Flip 5, the new port will enable most users to trim down on cable clutter by switching to a more modern connector.

JBL’s pedigree in great, enjoyable audio is delivered with a large 2.25-inch (57.15mm) transducer for better bass performance on the 20W Pulse 4.

Apart from a change from port from microUSB on the Pulse 3 to USB-C on the Pulse 4, the most notable change is in overall design. Gone is the “base” speaker grille the encompasses the bottom quarter of the cylindrical device. 

Instead, the Pulse 4 sports a full-length lighting display that can be customised visually with the JBL Connect app, and synced along with the music across nearby Pulse 4 speakers. PartyBoost has also been simplified – hold compatible speakers nearby and shake to sync.

Available from 15 November 2019 in White and Black, the JBL Pulse 4 will cost SGD 339 (GST included).
