Product Description

Bluesound Pulse Soundbar 2i is a fantastic home Soundbar 2i system, which will deliver clear, vivid, cinematic detail to any movie soundtrack. The Soundbar 2i can be neatly positioned underneath your television, and it is multi-room high-res Soundbar 2i with the ability to deliver audio with grace and poise, and with 24-bit res and audiophile-grade bass response, it is sure to impress.

Bluesound Gen 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.

Your Preference

The Pulse Soundbar 2i is an intelligent system, it has user-selectable listening modes, including two movie-dialogue enhancing modes, such as a wide music mode and a wide cinema mode, the Pulse Soundbar 2i has the versatility you need.

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 in Gen 2i, audio quality improvements are also ensured. 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.

Total Control

Utilising the BluOS app with either a smartphone or tablet (Android or Apple) could not be easier to control your music library. The app is intuitive and lets you access various popular streaming services. 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 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.

Wireless Home Theatre

With an amazing and outstanding deep bass response, the Pulse Soundbar 2i manages to deliver huge power, accurately presenting your favourite bass-heavy tracks or movies. Getting more bass is as simple as adding a Bluesound’s wireless subwoofer; the Pulse Sub. 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. The Pulse Soundbar 2i now includes HDMI (ARC and eARC). These provide improved connectivity and flexibility.

Press Reviews

  • 'A fine soundbar with all the perks of a streaming system... It’s more streaming system than simple soundbar, but this pricey, features-filled Bluesound is worth considering for its powerful sound' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)

  • 'The biggest appeal of the Pulse Soundbar is its wireless streaming capabilities. From hi-res 24-bit/192kHz files in just about all formats to the fledgling MQA, you’d normally see such credentials only in pricey hi-fi streamers.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
  • 'There’s plenty of weight underpinning the ample detail, and sound effects move around convincingly... The soundbar’s grand scale will draw you into the action, and the full-bodied approach means it’s comfortable to listen to. There isn’t a spiky edge in sight.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
  • 'If you’re looking for a grand soundbar that has the perks of the best streaming features available, this Bluesound Pulse Soundbar will certainly meet your needs as a main entertainment hub.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine September 2016)
