The Bluesound PULSE FLEX 2i is more than a compact wireless speaker. It's a high-performance wireless speaker that can be part of a Bluesound multi-room audio system. When it's linked to your home Wi-Fi network, it can stream high-resolution music with amazing accuracy. And built-in Bluetooth means you can play music from your phone and other sources, even when you're not on Wi-Fi.

The PULSE FLEX 2i has a moisture-resistant sealed enclosure, so you can use it in a bathroom or kitchen. Or combine two with a PULSE SOUNDBAR+ and PULSE SUB+ to create an incredible wireless 5.1 home theater audio system.

Compatible with AirPlay 2*

Built-in Apple AirPlay 2 technology lets you stream audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through your Bluesound system. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies.

And if you subscribe to Apple Music®, you can do even more. Use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV 4K to control Apple Music with voice commands. Tell it what selection or playlist to play — and which Bluesound speakers or components you want it to play through.

*Firmware update required.

High-quality Bluetooth streaming

The PULSE FLEX 2i features aptX® HD Bluetooth streaming for higher-fidelity sound with compatible Bluetooth devices. The system is backward-compatible with earlier forms of Bluetooth, too. You can even share that Bluetooth source with other Bluesound music players around your house that are connected to your network.

A universe of music options

Bluesound is compatible with virtually all digital music formats — including high-resolution files up to 24-bit/192kHz. Access the music stored on your computer or a networked hard drive. Stream from internet radio stations and online services like Spotify®, Pandora, Deezer, and TIDAL (including their high-res MQA service tier). You can also enjoy downloads from high-res music sites such as HDtracks.

A USB input conveniently lets you play files "locally" from a flash drive or hard drive — ideal when friends come over with their own music.

Control it all with an app

The BlueOS controller app is a free download for both Apple® and Android™ devices. Select songs from your smartphone or tablet. The app displays all of your music services, internet radio stations, and digital music libraries stored on your computer or server. Play music in one room, all rooms, or different tracks in different spaces around your home through BluOS-compatible speakers and players.

System Features

Pulse Flex 2i: The Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i wireless powered speaker employs various technologies; including advanced DirectDigital amplification from NAD Electronics, custom-tuned drivers from PSB Speakers, and BluOS multiroom audio software for seamless hi-res audio throughout your home. The end result is an innovative wireless powered speaker that delivers rich, detailed, and crystal-clear sound with no distortion.

  • Two-Way Driver Design w/ Full-Range Sound: The Pulse Flex 2i houses one 1" dome tweeter and one 3.5" mid-bass woofer designed by PSB Speakers. The Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i offers a full-range sound with a frequency response of 45Hz to 20kHz.
  • DirectDigital Amplifier w/ DSP: The Pulse Flex 2i utilizes a Direct Digital amplifier from NAD Electronics rated at 25 watts with 0.03% THD. State-of-the-art DSP equalization maximizes bass power and clarity.

Applications: The Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i is a versatile, full-range compact speaker that can be used in a variety of applications - including a single speaker setup, multiroom audio setup, 2ch stereo setup, or home theater setup. It can even be paired with Bluesound wireless powered subwoofer. 

  • Start with a single Flex 2i speaker and add more to create a wireless multiroom audio system.
  • Two Pulse Flex 2i speakers can be paired together for room-filling stereo sound.
  • Group two Pulse Flex 2i speakers together with a Bluesound Pulse soundbar (sold separately) and create a wireless surround sound system with dedicated rear channels.
  • Add up to two Bluesound Pulse Sub+ wireless powered subs (sold separately) to a single Flex 2i speaker or a stereo pair of Flex 2i speakers for bigger bass response.

BluOS Wireless High-Resolution Multiroom Audio: The Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i wireless speaker is part of the BluOS wireless high-resolution multiroom audio eco-system - consisting of powered speakers, soundbar speakers, amplifiers, players, and hard-drives. The BluOS wireless high-resolution multiroom audio ecosystem uses your home's wired or wireless network to connect multiple Bluesound products and play your music in perfect sync, or different music simultaneously, anywhere in your home. Using advanced technologies (like dual-band WiFi and an ARM Cortex9 1GHz Processor), BluOS can wirelessly transmit lossless music up to 24-bit/192kHz at ultra-fast speeds with no lag and zero loss in sound quality.

  • Compatible Multiroom Audio Sources: The following audio sources can be used for multiroom audio playback - internet radio (including TuneIn & iHeart Radio); online music services (including Tidal, Spotify, Amazon, Deezer, Slacker, and Napster); Bluetooth & USB audio, music libraries (computers and NAS drives); and Aux inputs (analog or digital).
  • Number of BluOS Zones: Up to 16 Bluesound devices can be connected in a strictly wireless environment. Demonstrated practice has shown that you can create up to 8 groups of 8 Bluesound devices or 4 groups of 16 Bluesound devices. If you want to connect more than 16 Bluesound devices, you will need to connect the Bluesound devices to your network using a wired connection. BluOS can then control up to 64 devices in a strictly wired environment.
Note: Gen 2i of Bluesound is compatible with earlier generations of Bluesound products.

Wired or Wireless Network Connection: The Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i can be connected to your home network and Internet provider via a hardwired Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack connector or wireless 2.4/5GHz dual-band WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac connection. The 5GHz WiFi band offers a faster and more reliable connection with less interruptions and dropouts. Either network/internet connection allows you to stream music libraries from your Windows or Mac computer and NAS drive (such as the Bluesound Vault 2i, sold separately); as well as stream select online music services and internet radio.

  • Wired Ethernet Setup: A wired connection to the network is simple and requires no setup. If you wish to use the wired connection, simply connect the Pulse Flex 2i directly to your router or home network using an Ethernet cable (sold separately).
  • Wireless WiFi Setup: A wireless connection allows you to place your BluOS Player virtually anywhere inside your home, but does require setup through the BluOS app on your Apple iOS or Android device. If you are on a Windows PC (7/8/10) or Apple Mac, you'll use Bluesound's web browser based application.  You'll be walked you through the set-up process step-by-step.


  • A wireless network connection will always be required for the BluOS Controller App.
  • Bluesound exclusively utilizes the 2.4GHz wireless band when connecting to a Wireless-N router.


High Resolution Audio: High-resolution audio tracks are either 24-bit/96kHz or 24-bit/192kHz, and contain up to 6.5x more data than standard CDs, letting you hear all the detail of your favorite music in superior quality. With full support for hi-res audio, you can stream WAV, FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, WMA-Lossless, MQA music files over your home's WiFi network or directly from a connected USB mass storage class device. The Bluesound system also supports compressed music files such as MP3, AAC, WMA and OGG. Bluesound has been designed to work with today's larger music collections, and has indexed libraries up to 200,000 songs in demonstrated practice (this will depend on the music's metadata & artwork). Bluesound also offers gapless playback by default for all supported file music types.

Compression File Type Sampling Frequency Bit Rate or Bit Depth
Compressed Lossy MP3 16-48kHz 192-320 kbps
Lossless WMA-Lossless up to 96 kHz up to 24-bit
FLAC 192 kHz up to 24-bit
Uncompressed AIFF up 192 kHz up to 24-bit
Notes: Bluesound cannot index or play AAC files with the extension ".m4p". These files were purchased in iTunes prior to 2009 and are subject to copy protection. Apple Consumers with an iTunes Match subscription can delete and re-download these files free of charge from their iTunes Cloud

MQA (Master Quality Authenticated): Bluesound is the first wireless multiroom audio system to support MQA (Master Quality Authenticated). MQA is a revolutionary end-to-end technology that captures and delivers master quality audio in a file that's small enough to stream or download. Bluesound worked closely with MQA to implement technology inside each Bluesound component to ensure the listener will hear MQA encoded music and streams exactly like the source and the way the artist intended you to hear it when it was approved in the studio.

Headphone Output: A 3.5mm headphone jack is located on the rear of the Pulse Flex 2i for private listening with a set of headphones. The dedicated headphone driver is rated 0.0055% THD @1kHz, 35mW. It is designed for use with most headphones, with a minimum impedance of 14 ohms. The Pulse Flex 2i speaker will be muted when headphone are connected.

AC Power or Battery Power: The Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i operates off of standard household current using it's internal power supply and the supplied 6.5' detachable AC power cord. The optional Bluesound BP100 battery pack (sold separately) delivers 6 hours of high-resolution audio streaming.

Note: Even though the optional battery pack allows you to take the Pulse Flex 2i outdoors, the speaker is not weather resistance or water proof.

Mounting Options: The Pulse Flex 2i speaker can simply be placed on a table-top, shelf, stand, desk, or other piece of furniture with a flat surface. There is also a M6 threaded insert on the back of the speaker which allows you to wall-mount it using Bluesound's VM100 wall-mount bracket (sold separately).

Firmware Updates: Firmware and software updates from Bluesound are delivered to the Pulse Flex 2i via your home network's Internet connection and the BluOS Controller app.

8 questions already asked

Which, if any of the surface buttons on the Pulse Flex 2i control power on/off?
robert  Aug 16, 2023
1 answer
Greetings Robert, and thank you for your question. None of the buttons can turn on or off the Pulse Flex 2i. When no signal is sensed, it will go to a low power standby mode. Turn it back on by a voice command if you have it set up for that or use the Bluesound controller app on your phone or tablet.
hogan  Aug 16, 2023 (Staff)
When set as a stereo pair, will they still work with AirPlay 2? Because my old Bose speakers wonâ??t - only individually.
russell  Sep 01, 2022

At this time it would not be possible to use these speakers in a stereo pair with AirPlay 2.
zachary  Sep 01, 2022 (Staff)
Is it possible to run 2 of these in stereo mode, 1 for left channel and 1 for right channel?

yes it is and it's fairly easy to do in the app.
gordon l  Jun 17, 2021
Sure. The software allows you to do that when you first set them up.
tom  Jun 17, 2021
Yes, set them up separately and then pair them...very simple
john  Jun 16, 2021
Yes it is. I am using just one set to mono in a small office and it works great, but I notice in the Bluesound app that you can set these individually to be either left, right, or mono.
alec  Jun 16, 2021
Yes and easily.
robert  Jun 16, 2021
Yes - I have considered doing it - it is a software configuration thing.

kevin p  Dec 22, 2020
You MUST plug them in. They do not work on battery.
robert  Dec 22, 2020
Yes, the battery is only necessary if you don't want it plugged in. I also have the battery, but I purchased it about a month after the unit. I will warn you, BluSound's customer service is very weak - maybe it is because of the pandemic, but I have had problems. The speaker has good sound...

They plug-in. The battery pack is a $89 accessory.

Does Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i work with Apple HomePod? I.e. 1) can I tell Siri on the HomePod to play music on the Flex 2i and vice versa? And 2) when using my iPad, do I need to use 2 separate apps to control each product? Or can I continue to use the Apple iPad control centre for both products.

Hi! Thanks for your question! If you are an Apple Music subscriber, you can add the Flex 2i to the Apple Home App, and use your iOS device or HomePod to perform basic functions. When not using Siri or the HomePod to control your devce, you can use your iPad to control the Flex 2i with the free BluOS Controller App in the App Store.

When headphones are plugged into the speaker's headphone jack, is the speaker's output muted?

Yes they have a wall mounting bracket you can purchase but you can't use the battery pack accessory if the wall bracket is used. Hope this answers your question
bruce  May 24, 2021
Yes absolutely there is a mounting fastener built into the back of these speakers
chad  May 24, 2021
no. would have to buy a bracket.
gigi  May 24, 2021
Yes, but not if you want to use the optional battery pack. Must be plugged in to power for wall mounting.

I have a Vault 2, if I get two Plus Flex2 speakers will they broadcast in stereo or will I just end up with 2 mono channels?

They will work in stereo. The Blusound software on your phone or tablet lets you set them up as a stereo pair
stephen  May 04, 2021
The Plus Flex two can be configured as a stereo pair. I've paired them as the only Bluesound nodes on the network and with several other Bluesound nodes on the network, but never specifically with a Vault. That said, I can't imagine any reason why having a vault on your network would break the functionality.

Your choice, actually. Using the BluSound App (BluOS if you have Apple), you can opt to make them a stereo pair, or not (you'll be prompted to make the choice).

I only have one, but there are settings for 2 Flex that give true stereo. I was asking Bluesound customer service about this just is configurable in the software.
