The flagship PULSE 2 delivers your music through 80 Watts of power and 3 audiophile-grade full-range speakers capable of reproducing lifelike detail from vertigo-inducing highs, to mindshaking, unfathomable bass.

Bluesound blends the forces of music and technology together in an ecosystem designed to deliver the best audio quality possible. Bluesound employs various architectures and technologies to achieve this, from advanced proprietary software to end-to-end hi-res audio processing. Harnessing the power of BluOS, consumers can wirelessly connect their Bluesound speakers and digital players, and stream any music file – MP3 to 24-bit/192kHz – as well as many popular music streaming services to any room in the home with the control of a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

While BluOS connects your devices, lossless audio technologies such as Hi-Res Audio (HRA) and Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) allow you to hear your music in master quality just as the artist intended.

Place the PULSE 2 on a bookshelf, countertop or end table, and hear the difference that 80 Watts of tri-amplified stereo sound can bring to any room. A patented dual-acoustic chamber with state-of-the-art DSP equalization maximizes bass power and clarity, while the high-performance 5.25” woofer pumps beautifully blended full-range sound into any room.

Of course Bluesound is compatible with MP3s – and just about every other digital format ever created – but Bluesound was purpose-built for high-res audio. While other companies put a premium on style, Bluesound has spared no expense on the integration of advanced, innovative audio technologies that deliver blazingly fast error-free playback in maximum studio-master recording quality, resulting in absolutely unbeatable performance.

Using industry-leading 1GHz ARM Cortex-9 Multi-core processors, you’d think Bluesound was engineered for something more than just audio. Bluesound’s 32-bit architecture combined with 8x oversampling, paired with our own innovative DirectDigital™ Amp and DAC platforms, ensures that your lossless high-res music playback is flawless, with precision, power and clarity – at any volume.

Wirelessly stream any music stored on your iOS (iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch) or Android device directly to any Bluesound Player over WiFi to instantly enjoy your entire mobile music library – every song and every playlist. Bluetooth’s highest bitrate protocol – aptX – is also built into every Player, opening up a whole new realm of CD-quality streaming possibilities for you, or anyone in the room with a Bluetooth device.
