Product Description

Bluesound Pulse 2i is the latest version of this excellent multi-room wireless speaker, the bigger brother to Bluesound's smaller Pulse Flex 2i and Pulse Mini 2i. Built-in Bluetooth aptX and integrated high-performance speakers allow you to stream music to multiple Bluesound players all over the home. The Pulse 2i 2 produces sound with 80 Watts of power through three audiophile level full-range drivers, which result in audiophile quality reproduction with clarity and detail, with a ground shaking bass.

Generation 2i

Bluesound Generation 2i, builds on the success of the originals and continues to strengthen the range with dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Apple AirPlay 2 support, upgraded Bluetooth codecs, improved amplification/acoustics and more while maintaining value for consumers. The innovative mix of amp upgrades, driver reconfigurations and updated DSP settings breathe fresh life into the Pulse speaker line-up and reflects Bluesound's commitment to creating the best wireless, multi-room home audio experience available.

Pulse Amplification

All-new, custom-designed digital amplifiers in Bluesound’s Pulse 2i effectively double the available driving power. The difference is dramatic with an improved bass response and more powerful sonic soundscapes. The new driver configurations complement the upgraded amplification with the Pulse 2i now functioning as a true stereo speaker. Users have better control over their audio settings. Popular DSP settings like Wide Mode, Late Night, and Dialogue from the Bluesound Pulse Soundbar are now available to these updated Gen 2i speakers.

Compact All-In-One

The Pulse 2i 2 can be positioned on a bookshelf, table, or a kitchen counter, and with the impressive 80 Watts of tri-amplified power, they will bring loud lifelike music to any room. A patented dual-acoustic chamber with new DSP equalisation ensures the bass has power and clarity.  The woofer is a huge 5.25", and will add to the depth of your recordings.

For High Res Audio

The Pulse 2i 2 is a highly compatible device, it can play almost every digital format, the Pulse 2i 2 was created for high-resolution audio. Bluesound have integrated advanced audio technology that delivers fast perfect playback in studio recording quality for absolutely unbeatable performance. Pulse 2i 2 uses industry-leading multi-core processors (1GHz ARM Cortex-9) with a 32-bit architecture, combined with 8x oversampling, and paired with a DirectDigital Amplifier and a DAC, for lossless high-resolution reproduction.

BluOS 3.0

Updating to BluOS 3.0, all BluOS users will gain access to new music services like SOUNDMACHINE and Taihe Music Zone (China only) and an easier guided set-up process. Plumbing for BluOS’s first voice integration, Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant will be included, with the corresponding library of skills to launch soon. BluOS 3.0 also contains specific support for Gen 2i features like two-way Bluetooth with aptX HD, and enhanced audio EQ settings including wide mode and deep bass.


Apple AirPlay 2

Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i is designed to support AirPlay 2 (to be delivered to Gen 2i owners via upcoming software update). With AirPlay 2, you can stream just about any sound from iPhone, iPad, or Mac to your Bluesound system — all in sync. Stream music, books and podcasts from your favourite apps, or watch videos on any Apple device while streaming the audio through to this Gen 2i Player – imagine watching Netflix on an iPad while filling the room with premium sound.

AirPlay 2 also gives users more options for control, including using Siri for voice assistance. Once you add your Gen 2i Player to the Apple Home App on your iPhone or iPad, Apple Music subscribers can use their iOS device or HomePod to say things like: “Hey Siri, play smooth jazz in the Living Room” or “Hey Siri, turn it up in the Kitchen.” By grouping a Gen 2i Player with older Bluesound Players in the BluOS App, existing customers can add AirPlay 2 compatibility to their entire BluOS system.

Two-Way Bluetooth

Gen 2i contains Bluesound’s most advanced take on Bluetooth to date - two-way Bluetooth, featuring both Receive and Transmit functionality. Receive capability allows users to wirelessly stream from their device to a Bluesound Player. The Transmit capability lets users now use their Bluesound Gen 2i Player as a source, sending what they are listening to via Bluetooth to a pair of wireless headphones.

aptX HD Bluetooth

While improving the Bluetooth connectivity, audio quality is also improved. The advanced Qualcomm CSR8675 chip used in these new products also supports aptX HD Bluetooth wireless audio. aptX HD is an enhanced codec that supports 24-bit audio over Bluetooth and has been engineered to improve the signal-to-noise ratio, resulting in lower background noise. With the ability to support up to 24bit/48kHz, streaming from an aptX HD compatible device to a Gen 2i Player provides better-than-CD quality, wirelessly. It all fits into the Bluesound story - modern wireless convenience without sacrificing quality.

Dual-Band Wi-Fi

Bluesound has upgraded the Wi-Fi chipset technology to the latest and greatest Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) dual-band offering. This allows you to take advantage of the less noisy 5 GHz band if needed resulting in faster connection times and fewer interruptions from other network traffic.

Press Reviews

  • 'Best multi-room system £500+' (What Hi-Fi Awards 2017 for Bluesound range)

  • 'As for performance, the Pulse 2 takes plenty of character from its powerful predecessor. We don’t need to lift the volume much past halfway for it to fill our testing room with its rich, full-bodied sound.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine May 2016)
  • 'It’s an enthusiastic performance with plenty of insight, and you’ll hear more subtlety to instruments and even more articulation behind big dynamic shifts. It’s solidly featured for its price too, and the new app only helps to make the user experience a more enjoyable one.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine May 2016)
  • 'The Pulse Mini may still be the smarter choice for a lot of rooms, but if you want the biggest, boldest sound in the Bluesound family, the Pulse 2 should be a keen contender for your audition list.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine May 2016)
  • 'The biggest, boldest-sounding member of the Bluesound family... A big, bold and expressive speaker that’ll fill even the biggest rooms with its rich, engaging sound.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine May 2016)
