Pulse, Bluetooth LED Light With Built-in Speaker Review
Pulse LED Bluetooth light bulb and speaker is a practical, hybrid creation of two daily use technologies turned one convenient gadget. The era of using light bulb sockets just for light bulbs exists no more!
Typically one can count on finding a light socket in every room of a house, restaurant, or coffee shop. Sengled probably thought "why not use the same standard socket to power an LED light bulb AND a built in speaker?" Genius! Yet, almost obvious, all at the same time.
So that's exactly what Pulse by Sengled did. They crafted an LED light bulb with a built-in speaker and Bluetooth technology. After the light bulb is installed, and connected to the phone/tablet, you can install the Android, or IOS app to customize your ambiance with options like dimming, individual speaker sound, and stereo sound.
The LED light has a brightness of 600 lumens, which is comparable to a 40 to 60 watt light bulb, and gives a warm light appearance. The light bulb uses only 15 watts when both light, and speaker are being utilized. The dimmer, however, is only accessible when using the app, and cannot be connected to external dimmers.
The built-in speaker is powered by JBL , a leading professional in sound technology. The speaker provides 13 Watts @ 8ohms; 100Hz-20kHz frequency response, which gives a beautiful depth, and surround sound effect. The sound can be controlled without the app, since the light connects to your phone just like any other Bluetooth speaker. But when using the app you can pair lights/speakers together to create left/right stereo sound, or just mono sound.=
There is no doubt that any one could fall in love with this intelligent lighting system, even the not so tech savvy people. There a few things, however, that could be considered to enhance the performance and give more options to the consumer:
Sengled, with their years of experience in lightning, and JBL ,with their high end sound products, are the perfect combination to create one high quality, convenient gadget. Because of the excellent performance quality of both the light and the speakers, Pulse by Sengled earns 4 TechPicks stars ★★★ ★
