I wanted to get somthing to play music in the GEM car. It didn't need to be some crazy loud or a power full boom box just something slightly louder then the I phone's output. I came across the JBL Pulse. Its a Small (it fits into a cup holder or a water bottle cage) personal bluetooth sound system with 5 to 10 hrs play time. You can charge it up via a USB or provided wall power. Its super portable and sounds great for its size. You can control all of its functions from your phone.JBL has a I phone app that allows you control all the light functions as well as download new light show programs and upload the light show programs Via blue tooth Its very cool.

I checked out the Small Beats Pill & the Small Jam Box & the Bose Mini. I thought The JBL sounded better. I have been playing with it all weekend and its pretty cool.

I have a similar device, Westinghouse Unplug.

Great Device, comes in super handy when I'm wanting/needing some decent sound and I don't have a stereo.

I have the JBL Charge and it is amazing! It sounds great, gets super loud and a charge lasts 12 hours. I went into bestbuy and had no idea what to look for. A guy who worked there actually had tons of knowledge on all of them and pointed me to the Charge as being the best bang for the buck. Its nice to be able to go in and compare them all side by side.

The JBL charge would have been my 2nd choice. I agree from what I was able to here at Best Buy the Charge sound'd pretty much the same as the Pulse. It would be hard to beat the Bose sound dock or the JamBox but for size I think the 2 JBL products sound real good. The ability for them to fit into a water bottle holder or cup holder has worked out great.

On a side Note We picked up a few Bluetooth receivers. I ended up installing them on pretty much all of my audio devices around the house. These units cost $27 on Amazon and get power via a USB or a 110 wall plug. They come with a 3.5 to RCA output the plugs into pretty much any device.
So for a few dollars you can transmit to your home stereo or older boom box. Here is a pic of the Bluetooth receiver mounted on my Ion Block Rocker. (It's the black box) on top of the unit it's also a NFC device

You must be very diligent and considerate in the use of that "Block Rocker" Cause in my neighborhood that thing would have bullet holes in it..

In the information era, people’s life is filled with hustles and bustles. Sometimes we just want a quiet environment to enjoy ourselves. Then you may need this cell cell phone jammer masking for acoustic interference against listening devices.

$300 for a cell phone jammer??? Is this a serious product? how about saving $300 and just turning it off.
