MEET THE PULSE M
NO BOUNDARIES. HI-FIDELITY LISTENING.
The PULSE M’s Omni-Hybrid™ driver features an upfiring 5 1/4" woofer and two 3/4" tweeters mounted and offset at 45 degrees from each other to deliver an immersive, 360° soundstage. A custom-designed acoustic reflector above the woofer diffuses unwanted sonic artifacts while directing the driver's higher frequencies out and away from the speaker. The driver assembly relies on a meticulously engineered power supply and a DSP smart amplifier producing 80 watts of system power to achieve real-time monitoring and control of frequency bandwidth, dynamic range and distortion to direct clear and lush audio from nearly any listening angle.
ELEVATE YOUR SPACE
An elliptical shaped cabinet and acoustically transparent fabric “grille” creates a space-saving design that adds a contemporary touch to any space. Placement flexibility is available with the optional WM230 wall mount accessory and FS230 floorstands. The PULSE M comes in Satin Black or White finishes to match other Bluesound players.
RULE YOUR SONIC DOMAIN
The PULSE M uses your Wi-Fi network to get set up as soon as it comes out of the box. Simply open the BluOS Controller app and watch as it walks you through the set-up process step-by-step. You can customize the speaker’s name and give it a room, adjust audio settings, and program the 5 quick-touch preset buttons that let you quickly listen to your favorite radio stations, music services and playlists with a simple tap.
STREAM ANY MUSIC. NO MATTER WHERE IT LIVES.
As your all access pass to millions of tracks, the BluOS Controller app allows you to stream songs from your existing music services, tune in to your favorite podcasts, or even listen to music from your personal collection. Thanks to aptX™ HD Bluetooth®, users can wirelessly stream any music or app from a Bluetooth-enabled device in CD-quality, opening up a whole new realm of streaming possibilities with the PULSE M.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SOUND
The PULSE M can also be paired to create a true two-channel listening experience with an ultra-wide soundstage, even at off-axis listening angles. The speaker can be grouped with other players in a Bluesound ecosystem to deliver hi-res, multi-room audio to one or many rooms, simultaneously. Use PULSE Ms as rear surrounds in a Bluesound home theater group along with PULSE SOUNDBAR+ and PULSE SUB+ to create a truly immersive experience.
COMMAND YOUR MUSIC WITH VOICE
With skills and support for Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri, you can easily connect your Bluesound Player to the corresponding app and enjoy hands-free voice control of personal music libraries, streaming services and more using simple, streamlined commands. Select a track, play your favorite playlist, pause or skip a song, and even say which room you want to listen to music in through your voice assisted device (Note: there are no microphones on the PULSE M). A quick and easy to way control your music, voice control brings you a whole new way to experience music throughout the home.
