Colour Name:Black

Product Description

Jambox delivers stunning hi-fi audio in a portable wireless speaker so compact you won't believe it when you hear it. Unlike other portable speakers, Jambox is powered by a pair of proprietary, highly sophisticated acoustic drivers, unmatched in their ability to produce extreme high (tweeter) and low (woofer) frequencies from a single, ultra-small dome speaker. They work in concert with an innovative moving-wall passive bass radiator and airtight enclosure to deliver shimmering highs and thumping lows that you can literally feel - the richest sound all in the palm of your hand.

It Only Gets Better With Time.....Jambox is the only speaker in the world that gets smarter every time you plug it in. Just sync it with MyTALK (Jawbone's industry-first online platform) to download apps, software upgrades, and the latest features - including LiveAudio, an immersive three-dimensional listening experience. Jambox's integrated intelligence allows you to personalise it to your specific preferences. No other speaker on the planet is intelligent and updateable - but then again, nothing else is quite like Jambox.

Go Anywhere, Go Wireless.....Jambox gives you the freedom to bring pristine wireless audio to whatever you are doing, wherever you want. Carry it from room to room or just throw it in your bag - it's always ready to go, no more cords, docks or hassles. With Jambox, you can also enjoy streaming music, podcasts and sporting events while using your phone to do other things like email, post to Facebook or browse the web.

Amp up Your Music, Movies and Games.....don't let tiny computer speakers sap your sound. All your media deserves great audio, no matter what device it's played from. With Jambox, you'll feel the thump of every kick drum and the vroom of every car chase - Jambox brings all your mobile media vibrantly to life. And with about ten hours of continuous play, you can blast away all day long with plenty of charge to spare for whatever comes next.

Conference on the Go.....with a powerful, built-in microphone, Jambox frees you to share crisp, clean-sounding conference calls anywhere - in the office, car, at home, alone or with a group. Gone are the days of garbled, hard-to-hear chatter through your mobile phone or computer, and no more being tied down by phone lines. All you get with Jambox is crisp, clean wireless conference calls from your phone or computer. It's also perfect for sharing video chats via iChat, Skype, Google Talk and more.

It's All in the Detail.....part technical wonder, part modernist artwork, Jambox looks and feels as striking as it sounds. Whether placed on a desk, coffee table, or shelf, Jambox not only declutters jumbles of wires and clumsy computer speakers, but adds a distinct touch of style. With its stainless steel construction and industrial-weight moulded rubber casing, this is not just a pretty package - Jambox is a sturdy, portable, and meticulously crafted machine that's built to blast, and yet another example of Jawbone's obsession with delivering breakthrough audio innovations, exceptional functionality, and beautifully designed products for today's mobile lifestyle.

Positives

- Good connection, never had a drop
- Button to use voice control (eg Siri)
- Looks great
- Small and portable
- Decent battery
- Nice battery indicator on iOS
- Updateable through Jawbone webstie
- Includes nice carrying case

Negatives
- Not very loud
- Lack of bass
- Expensive
- No skip buttons
- Built in microphone not good at picking up speech

This is a very nice looking piece of gear, that is very portable. Included in the very nice packaged box, is a carrying case, micro USB wire, 3.5mm male to male cable and the Jambox itself.

The carrying case is a very nice touch. the Jambox slips inside with two flaps that are magnetically held to the top. It is a great thing to be included, as it means putting it in a bag you won't be worried about dust and the likes getting inside grills.

The sound of the device is good, with some nice ranges. Listening to anything without much bass and in a quiet environment is an enjoyable experience. However, if any of those two are a requirement, then avoid this speaker. It just simply isn't loud enough. For the money paid, you would expect it to be able at least compete with ambient noise (such as university halls). The bass issues mean listening to certain songs lacks the punch that should be there. I just cannot recommend this speaker for this price with these two main issues. I use it and like it, but it is not worth the money.

The buttons on top are nice, with the main circle button being customisable on using the Jawbone website. You can also change the voices that greet you and sounds made through this website. The Jambox can also be updated, which is a nice touch.

Since getting a tablet, I had been looking at getting a wireless speaker for it and my phone for a while. I looked at lots and lots of reviews for different speakers. I looked at the Bose Soundlink but it was way too expensive and £200+. The logitech Mini boombox and the UE Mini were firm favourites but I wanted something that produced a decent amount of base. I saw the Jambox and loved it but thought £160 was still quite a lot. Fortunately, it was reduced to £99 after Xmas 2012.

Connection:

Connects easily to both my Asus tablet and HTC phone, I have not tried iphone yet. The first time it took a little while to find the Jambox and took a couple of refreshes on my phone to find it. Once paired, it connects automatically when you turn your bluetooth on to reconnect. Sometimes the connection skips and experienced once the music stopping for no reason but this could be down to Spotify being unreliable.

Sound:

I first got it and played some music. The volume goes loud enough for a room in your house before going on a night out or sitting outside for some easy listening but it wont't be loud enough for a party. The sound quality was good but did still sound like it's coming out of small speakers (only slightly flat). Then I updated the software on Jawbone online portal. The new software feature Live Audio is amazing. You are able to turn it off for more volume and less quality....you will never turn this off because it makes music sound brilliant. It introduces so much depth to the music and makes it astonishing that such good quality music can come out of something so small. (Small enough to chuck in a jacket pocket or small handbag. I use it for taking outside to train and around the house for multi room music. Who needs a Sonos system?

I bought the Jambox from the Apple shop to play my music on from my Iphone when on the move.
The audio quality is particularly impressive with live audio enabled and it gives very impressive 3D sound. The only down side of "live audio" is that the maximum volume is rather low possibly although this could be resolved in a future software update. The unit is compact and looks good. My Talk is the PC/Mac software that allows personalisation and updates and this seems to work well with no problems on either Mac or PC. The Bluetooth seems to work fine and the pairing/connection to Iphone and MBA seems solid and reliable. Range is as one would expect.
With a built in microphone it also handle phone calls and the clarity of these is excellent. Connectivity is (apart from the Bluetooth) is via a micro USB socket below the on off switch. There have been some concerns regarding the fragility of this with reports of the socket coming adrift which renders the device useless as it is used for charging. I do not as yet seem to have had this happen to my unit! So, on the good side is the 3d audio quality and the good looks and small size of the unit. On the not so good side is the price, rather a low max volume and reported concerns as to the micro USB socket.
In the box: unit/ case/ USB lead/ wall plug/ audio cable/ Quick start guide.
