Bluesound Pulse 2i (Black)
Version Gen 2i brings a whole raft of streaming improvements. Apple AirPlay 2 is now supported, as is aptX HD Bluetooth. The HD version of aptX Bluetooth streaming supports 24-bit audio, making this the best quality Bluetooth connection to date. Another bonus is the adoption of dual-band wi-fi. The new wi-fi chip lets you take advantage of the less noisy 5 GHz band if needed. This results in faster connection times and fewer interruptions from other network traffic.
Two-way Bluetooth for compatibly with Bluetooth headphones
Another bonus with this Gen 2i version is two-way Bluetooth. This not only lets you connect up Bluetooth music sources put also outputs to Bluetooth accessories, primarily Bluetooth headphones in this case.
True stereo sound
Now with enhanced amplification and reconfigured stereo speakers, the PULSE 2i sounds more immersive sounding than ever. For the best sound in all conditions, DSP (Digital Signal Processor) settings include Wide Mode, Late Night and Dialogue – changing the speaker’s sonic character to suit.
Even punchier sound
With an enhanced 150 watt digital amp at its heart, the PULSE 2i is nearly twice as powerful as before. The twin woofer units deliver deeper, more sustained bass than the previous model, giving a more life-like sound than before.
Stream music around your home
A wide range of Bluesound speakers and streamers let you set up a comprehensive music system around your home. Choose between Ethernet and advanced wi-fi for quick and easy set up with your existing home network. With blazing-fast ARM Cortex A9 processors at their heart, you can be assured of smooth, seamless sound with no skips or dropouts – even with Hi-Res music files. Play your music around your home in perfect sync or have different music playing in different rooms – the choice is yours.
Play music directly from your smartphone
More than just a multi-room streaming speaker, the PULSE 2i also doubles as a premium Bluetooth speaker. For quick and easy playback, simply pair with your phone and tablet and stream away. With the power of aptX to hand, Bluetooth sound quality has never been so good.
Access Internet radio and cloud music services such as Spotify and Tidal
Although you can access your own digital music library, Bluesound also gives you access to near-unlimited music via Internet radio and the best streaming music services. Compatible with Spotify (Premium account required for full features), Tidal, Deezer, Qobuz and Napster, amongst others, the PULSE 2i is ever-ready to play your favourite music.

Stylish and unobtrusive
Easily big enough to fill a room with music, the PULSE 2i is far from ugly or obtrusive. A choice of black or white finishes also lets it blend with your décor when you’re back at home. If you don’t have your phone or tablet to hand, a simple touch sensitive interface gives you direct control.
