With power up, true stereo speakers and enhanced networking, the Bluesound PULSE MINI 2i raises the bar for compact wireless speakers.

Generation 2i

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 MINI 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.

Mini size, maxi sound
It might only be shoebox-sized, but the PULSE MINI 2i has got plenty of welly to put the boot in to rival speakers!

Even punchier sound
With an enhanced 100 watt digital amp at its heart, the PULSE MINI 2i is powerful well beyond its size. 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 MINI 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 HD 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 MINI 2i is ever-ready to play your favourite music. Being compatible with Hi-Res music files also makes the PULSE MINI 2i the perfect match for Tidal, Qobuz and other premium, Hi-Res music services.

Control by iOS, Android, Kindle, Windows or Mac
With the Bluesound streaming system, you’re not stuck with a single operating system. Full control is possible with Apple iOS (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad), Android and Kindle Fire smartphones and tablet. Desktop control is also possible via Windows XP, 2000, Vista, 7, 8 and Apple OS X Mac.

Stylish and unobtrusive
Compact enough to fit on a shelf, the PULSE MINI 2i is the perfect speaker for your bedroom, kitchen or office. 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.

All that’s great about Bluesound in a compact speaker – the PULSE MINI 2i packs a big punch from its compact dimensions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant, stylish speakers Once I had managed to upgrade my speakers and Vault 2i the speakers were simplicity itself to set up. The sound is really good. Most of my music is blues, guitar or rock and the quality is wonderful. Experimenting now as to where is the best place to station them for the best effect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent addition to system Purchased for an additional room recently to add to Bluesound Node 2i already in my system. Fairly inconspicuous addition so relatively easy on 'domestic authorities'. Decent enough sound bearing in mind size and a good price from Richer Sounds with free delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant sound from Pulse Mini 2i The Pulse Mini 2i with the Powernode 2i I bought a few weeks earlier have transformed the music around our house without the stress of finding cable routes. It produces a great sound easily foiling our larger kitchen / dining room. It was very easy to connect in with the BluOS app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds fantastic, very powerful I already own a Bluesound Node, and decided to buy this to expand my multiroom setup. It took a little while to get it setup, and to work out all the app functions, but it was soon working perfectly. I was delighted with the sound, firm bass, crystal clear, and more than enough power to fill a decent size room. It also has all the functionality you could wish for - I use it for Qobuz, digital radio, playing hi res files from my PC, aptx bluetooth from my phone, syncing with other Bluesound players. Overall very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound. Simple yet stylish form factor. This is by far the best wireless Bluetooth speaker in the market right now, and no kidding about this. It took me a while and a fair bit of research to make a decision between the Sonos Play 5, Bluesound Pulse Mini 2 and the Pluse Mini 2i, having sold my Denon Heos 7 HS2 due to their buggy app, and looking to replace/upgrade it. I went into Richer Sounds MK store, demoed all three, and decided initially on the Bluesound Pulse Mini 2i. As with reviews on other sites, set up was slightly complicated but it got fired up after a few minutes of configuration using the BluOS Controller app. I played with it for about a day or two and wasn't initially impressed with its sound quality. I guess this was because I came out from from a Heos 7 background, with its punchy bass and we'll balanced mids and highs. I later went back in store and replaced the Pulse Mini 2i with the Pulse Mini 2. This system sounded amazing and almost at par with the 2i, but there was something with the sonics which made the 2i performed and sounded better than the Pulse Mini 2 and the Sonos Play 5. Incorporated in the 2i is the ability to enable Stereo effects for dispersed sound , plus it's amplifier is 40 watts more powerful than the Pulse Mini 2 at 60 watts of total amplifier output. The bass on the 2i is more detailed, whilst the mids and highs are perfectly balanced, giving the listener sonic bliss from whatever genre is thrown at it. So I went back to the store and took back the Pulse Mini 2i previously returned. Having given all that praise to the Pulse Mini 2i, it is worth mentioning that Bluesound do no support DNLA, meaning that Android users are only able to stream music files stored locally on their devices only via APTX HD Bluetooth and not on Wi-Fi. I am specifying Android devices here, as the 2i supports Apple Airplay, giving Apple users the benefit of this luxury. So as an Android user, I am giving the 2i 4 stars for this reason. The guys at Richer Sounds MK store are a fantastic bunch. Great customer service and patience. Special thanks to the Store Manager Mark. Five stars to you guys.
