Nice but App has room for improvement

  • nice sound
  • Robust
  • unable to search for library playlists

I am very impressed with the Bluesound PULSE FLEX2i. The sound, compactness, robustness housing and operation are perfectly fine and the design also appeals to me. However, with the BluOS App there is still a lot of room for improvement My frame of reference is iTunes and Volumio and I work with a local library on a Synology NAS. First of all: - Reading iTunes library and iTunes xml file with Playlist info works well. Some of my recommendations. Installation and settings - In settings - wifi - it would be very helpful if you can see which wifi network you are connected to. Now only a list is displayed - 5 Ghz networks are not displayed Translation and inconsistency - At My presets: The BluOS app for MacOs has a browse button with 'select source' the iOS app shows 'Preset Sound', this should be 'Select source' - Settings - Music Library - 'Reindex library' and 'Reindex', the latter should be called 'Reindex library'. Handy to add a line in the iOS app 'Use reindex if you have recently added or removed music.' This is the case with the MacOs version in English./ General - Search for Playlist. This does not work now, although there is a search field above the playlist. If you are looking for a specific playlist and you have a lot of them, you now have to scroll a lot - For lists like Albums, enable sorting (ascending/descending) - A fix for cover art that BluOs can't extract from the audio file for some reason. iTunes has no problem with this. Volumio has a solution by getting album covers from the internet. - My presets: Being able to add a library playlist. You can now only link playlists saved on BluOs to a preset. Other - At Alarm list a simple summary of the alarm, now you only see the time. what happened to me sometimes - App crashed at radio Station - Schedule In short: all in all a nice product, I expect that the software side will also be fine.

Nice full sound in a compact box

  • Compact and super sound
  • Includes app and google assistance
  • No battery, power cord

I am thrilled with this speaker that I bought after hearing it played at a friend's house at a birthday. It is a nice compact box that has a very full and complete sound. It's a pity that I can't connect it to my bose soundlink revolve plus, but as a separate box it still makes me happy. With my Spotify and online music listening app, it is on all day in my office and provides relaxation between work. Also during the tour de france I was able to listen in on every stage. Unfortunately, it is without a battery and you must always have it on a power cord, which makes it less possible to take it with you. That's not what I bought it for because it keeps its permanent place and is an asset with its compact, beautiful design. I also used them with the special bose app and google assistance. The app is user-friendly but I had a fight with google assistance who still has something to learn. Nevertheless, I recommend it for people who have a permanent place in their home for this box.

Pleasant sounding Sonos transcending speakers

  • Good and detailed sound/Hi-res support
  • nice design
  • Occasional faltering app

I bought a set of Flex 2i's and the sound is what I had hoped for. Those small speakers produce a pretty rich and detailed sound. When wired via Ethernet, it can also play hi-res file formats, which I think is a big plus. Unlike Sonos, fortunately no whipped bass here, honest sound that can also be adjusted a bit via the app. I think it is recommended.

Great sound for the true music lover

  • Excellent sound. Clearly better than Sonos Play1
  • Easy to operate

Player with great sound quality, especially when you consider the format. So far (a few years) I've been using the PLAY1 from Sonos and was quite happy with it. Because I use the Powernode 2i from Bluesound in the living room, for example for the TV (and I am very satisfied with that), I have now also switched to Bluesound in the kitchen with this Pulse Flex 2i. Awesome! Highly recommended for the music lover!

Excellent box

  • Good sound
  • Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
  • The BluOs app

I already have a Bluesound power node that works flawlessly in combination with Airplay. In addition, there is also a Sonos One, but the Airplay connection often drops out. Because I need an extra box for presentations at customers, I gave this pulse flex 2i from Bluesound a try. Airplay works immediately and (so far) without stuttering. For a small box the sound is very good and loud enough to fill a room. The preset buttons are useful for many sources to listen to. The box looks really good; robust and sturdy, nice matte finish, neat buttons, absolutely no plastic appearance. The only downside is the BluOs app with which you set everything and operate the box. It works well in itself and offers endless possibilities to configure everything, but it has a poor interface and you are often looking for where what is. Although this is not a product comparison with the Sonos One and I have not really compared the two, I like this Bluesound better and I am certainly willing to pay the extra amount for it.

The WiFi speaker for a real HiFi experience!

  • Airplay 2
  • Sound quality
  • Performance dependent on Wifi

Fantastic product that produces much more room-filling sound than I expected. Initially only got one for the kitchen and wanted to get a Pulse Mini 2i for the living room, but my small living room 30m2 is perfectly filled by a Flex 2i supplemented by the second flex 2i from the kitchen!

never again

  • convenient operation
  • very good sound

Sometimes a bit unclear. Playback via WiFi or Bluetooth works through a different system.

Top! And a bit quirky.

  • You buy bluesound for the sound
  • Integrates easily with other Bluesound speakers
  • Too bad the player gets an update before you can use it

Installation via the app. Not super user-friendly because it is a bit unclear. YOU want to plug in the player and start using it right away. But there will be an update first. I have combined the flex with a Pulse 2. The latter is connected via cable and the flex via Wifi (250 MBit). They play really well together in sync no matter which source I choose. Even the sound from TV connected to the Pulse 2 via an optical cable plays in sync with the flex 2i. Handy if I want to follow the commentary of the Tour de France in the kitchen while cooking. Bluesound is great if you don't want to choose what most people choose. Quality at least as good and more

Nice device with good sound and easy to set up.

  • Good sound
  • Beautiful appearance
  • In the app you have to search for a few settings, but doable

I had an (old) Sonos that kept jumping back for a few minutes or dropping out (but it had good network coverage); With the Bluesound these problems are not, while it is in the same place as before me Sonos. Also possible to log on to the 5GHz frequency; good connections without dropping out. Also nice controls and preset buttons. I also like the look by the way. I am very satisfied so far.
