Not many have necessarily heard of the Bluesound Pulse Soundbar, but it has been a strong competitor in the sound market for years. So much so that it ranks high on the best soundbar list, among the Yamaha YAS-108, Vizio SB3820-C6, and Sony HT-ST5000. If you’re building a home theater and need great surround sound, the Bluesound Pulse is one option you have to consider with your ears.
Why We Like It – Bluesound Pulse 2i Soundbar Review
The Bluesound Pulse 2i Soundbar is a sound bar built for awesome, hi res audio listening, especially music. It integrates easily into your smart home entertainment system and has great control options.
If you’re looking for a high performance sound bar, then you can’t do much better than the Bluesound Pulse 2i, especially if you love music. The sound quality is superb for digital music and high resolution audio. Hi res audio compatibility allows this sound bar to compete with any of the top models from other brands out there.
Music aside, it will also do your streaming services justice. The Pulse Soundbar will turn your regular Netflix shows into high resolution watching experiences. Pulse connects to your wireless network and performs without lag when wireless streaming.
The Bluesound Pulse 2i Soundbar is smartly designed in that it integrates seamlessly with the Bluesound system. That means if you have multi room Bluesound devices, you can link your Pulse Soundbar via wi fi and use the BluOS Controller app to control all your devices (it’s compatible with voice control). The BluOS app works great with the Pulse Sub and Pulse Flex to complete your home theater setup.
Its physical design, however, leaves a bit to be desired for most. The bulky housing of the unit is difficult to place in the room. In fact, those with large enough TVs find that it can block out the bottom of the screen. You may need to incorporate a higher TV stand to avoid this.
Bluesound Pulse 2i Soundbar is definitely a higher end sound bar model. While it is pricey, it’s worth it if you really want top quality sound in your home. That’s especially true if you’re an avid music lover. If you love controlling your devices via app, then Bluesound offers some of the best control options available through theirs. If you want the best of the best for sound, you should consider this.
Bluesound Pulse 2i Soundbar Review Wrap Up

Music lovers may want to check this model out first and compare the others to its standard of sound. If you’re just getting into building your home theater sound system, it’s a little pricey. But the Bluesound system is definitely one you can build around, especially if you want to add devices in multiple rooms.
