Pulse LED + Wireless Speakers Review
If someone had told me a few years ago that I could listen to music from light bulbs I wouldn’t have believed them. That was until Sengled introduced Pulse, a downlight speaker bulb that allow you to wirelessly stream your favorite music through any Bluetooth enabled device. That’s right! A light bulb that play music.
What’s In The Box
When opening the box, you can find two dimmable LED light bulbs + wireless speakers – the Pulse bulbs. They look pretty much the same except that one is the Master Bulb and the other is a Satellite Bulb. You can also find a User Manual along with the Quick Start Guide and the Pulse Limited Written Express Warranty. These documents are also available for download at www.sengled.com in case you loose them.
The Pulse bulbs I received for this review are gray (Pewter) but they are also available in red (Candy Apple) and white (Pearl White) at no extra cost. The bulbs are larger than incandescent bulbs we usually use in our homes. The Pulse is 5.5″ (H) x 3.8″ (Dia.) while a standard incandescent bulb is around 4.1″ (H) x 2.2″ (Dia.). At this point, you can already figure out it won’t fit everywhere.
Even if they are that big, they still look amazing, thanks to the metallic paint finish and the shape of the bulb. They also feel less breakable than an incandescent bulb. But you won’t want to let them fall on the ground just to see what could happen.
Ok so it’s light bulb that produce sounds. But how does it works? The first thing to know is that the Master Bulb must be installed into an E26 light bulb socket to power it, just as any light bulb. This means there is no need for wires or power adapters and it’s very easy to install.
The Master Bulb connects with any smart device via Bluetooth while running the Pulse app (available on the App Store for Apple devices and on the Google Play Store for Android devices). The Master Bulb also controls the satellite bulb to produce stereo sound. Each Pulse Bluetooth speaker system can support up to 8 Pulse bulbs at one. This means one Master Bulb and up to 7 Satellite Bulbs. Please be aware that each Satellite must be placed within 100-115 feet of the Master. Once setup, you can control them all from your smart device and play your music synchronously.
One of the downside of this concept is that the light switch must be turned on for the whole system to work. If the light switch is turned off, the bulb will not function at all. This means you’ll always have to connect to the bulb via your smartphone or tablet to turn off/on the light when you need to, which is kind of annoying. And if someone walk in and hit the light switch to turn on/off the light, this will reset the system.
The Pulse app gives you full control of each bulb from the brightness of the light and speaker volume to stereo effect and preset settings.
Inside the bulb, you can find a 1.75″ full range high fidelity JBL Loudspeaker (13 Watts Max. @ 8ohm) that generate room-filling audio. Honestly, it sounds like portable wireless Bluetooth speakers at first and there’s a clear lack of bass. But the sound become better as soon as you turn on at least Satellite. And trust me, that is impressive considering the fact that the sound is coming from light bulbs.
For those who would like to enhance the low frequencies of their Pulse sound system, a Subwoofer Adaptor that can be plugged into almost any subwoofer and that work seamlessly with the Pulse app is also available for purchase.
For this review, I tested the one Master + one Satellite only. I can only imagine how it could sounds with 7 more Satellites but I’m sure it’s amazing.
The retail price for the Starter Kit is $149.99 (from $133.99 on Amazon.com) and each additional Satellite would cost you $69.99. Yes, that’s expensive but when you think about it, you get a dimmable LED that is designed for 25,000 hours and that produce high-quality JBL sounds. You also get a system that is easy to setup, that can be hided in light fixtures and that doesn’t require any wires, remote control or power adapter.
- As simple to install as an incandescent bulbs
- High-quality JBL sound
- Won’t fit in some light fixtures due to its size
