IFA 2019, BERLIN - 05 SEPTEMBER 2019 – High-resolution LED lights beneath its sleek surface produce stunning light shows that bring a whole new dimension to your favourite songs. With JBL’s classic Signature sound, you’ll hear the crisp highs and deep bass from all angles.

The JBL Connect app allows you to choose colours and effects to suit any mood. Use your phone camera to really take customisation to the next level, letting you scan and colour-match any object that takes your fancy. Kick back to calming pastels and classic chill out vibes, or shred along to flickering orange flames - the choice is yours.

Up to two smartphones or tablets can connect at once to keep the music flowing among friends, while a 12-hour battery life and IPX7 waterproof build ensure the Pulse 4 can handle any rave, come rain or shine. Head to the PartyBoost feature in the JBL Connect app to really crank up the fun and wirelessly connect more than 100 JBL PartyBoost enabled speakers.

With its powerful sound and eye-catching light show covering the full speaker, the JBL Pulse 4 is truly a feast for the senses.

The JBL Pulse 4 is unique, using cutting-edge technology that provides the perfect form for our customers to express themselves and their individuality. We’ve introduced a full speaker lightshow to really elevate the sound and make it shine,” said Dave Rogers, President, HARMAN Lifestyle Audio.
