Big performance in a small package
The Pulse 2i is powerful enough to be used as your main listening device, or as a secondary system in your kitchen, office or bedroom. You can also pair two together and enjoy your music in stereo mode with separate left and right channels for a wider and more dynamic sound.
It's the little things...
In addition to its extremely sturdy build, the details of the Pulse 2i really impact how you interact with it. The built-in handle, for example, makes it easy to grab from your living room table and bring out to the patio.

The hi-fi for real life
For its modest size, the Pulse 2i is surprisingly powerful, delivering clear mid-range performance even at volume, and even outdoors. You can tune the speaker's sonic character to suit your listening environment by selecting between different DSP settings, including Wide Mode, Late Night and Dialogue. Take this one step further by using Roon’s DSP suite to customize volume leveling, EQ, upsampling, room correction, convolution, and more.
Play the music you want, from the service you have, wherever you’re at — the Bluesound Pulse 2i takes the stress out of HiFi.

Start listening in minutes
Get up and running in minutes by connecting to the BluOS app and following the simple setup instructions. Once the Pulse 2i is online, connectivity stays rock-solid thanks to its best-in-class new dual band WiFi engine.
Even punchier sound
The Pulse 2i features an enhanced 150 watt digital amp at its heart that is nearly twice as powerful as its predecessor. Upgraded tweeters expand the sweet spot for listening, and its new DAC is an MQA decoder.
Putting you in control
Support for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri means your whole family can enjoy hands-free voice control of personal music libraries and streaming services.
