The JBL’s IPX7 waterproof rated Pulse 4 claims a battery life of 12-hours, with a 3.5-hour recharge time for a full charge. Two smartphones or tablets can connect simultaneously, and high-brightness coloured LEDs can be switched to a single colour or set to provide a light-show accompaniment to whatever music is playing.

With a simple click of a button through the JBL Connect App, you can switch between colours to suit your mood plus you can use your phone to scan and colour match any objects to take personalisation to a whole new level,’ said Marcus Fry, of Harman, which distributes JBL in Australia, ‘so you can kick back to soothing pastels lighting while listening to some of your favourite chill-out tunes.

JBL rates the power of the internal amplifier at 20-watts. It drives a single 57mm wide-range driver for which JBL claims a frequency range of 70Hz to 20kHz. Multiple Pulse 4s can be interlinked, or the Pulse 4 can be wirelessly linked to any powered speaker with JBL’s ‘PartyBoost’ circuit to increase volume level and coverage area. Up to 100 JBL PartyBoost-enabled speakers can be interlinked. ‘A speaker to reflect your mood and environment, the new Pulse 4 lets you do you,’ said Fry. ‘From the living room to the beach party, the portable speaker provides incredible sound, with visuals to match.’

Available now, the JBL Pulse 4 measures 96×96×207mm (HWD) and sells for $299.95 (RRP).
