JBL has announced its upcoming $199 Pulse portable speaker, which at first glance appears will be just as interesting to look at as it will be to listen to. Sure, you’ll likely get very good sound, and it streams music from any device that is Bluetooth/NFC-enabled, but the real calling card for Pulse is its programmable, customizable, pulsing multi-LED light show, which JBL hypes will “turn anyplace into a party space,” y’all.
Pulse will encourage spontaneous “spin-the-speaker” makeout sessions if JBL’s ad is to be believed:
Hot, sweaty stuff!
As for the speaker itself, it features 40 mm drivers, a custom-tuned bass port and a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. Pulse will offer an app that facilitates connections and control.
Pulse is expected to ship on November 13.
