The finish is a nice metallic green with glossy black trim, the buttons feel clicky, but they are responsive. It has a rubberised base allowing the speaker to steadily grip and prevent it from being accidently knocked off.
The sound quality over bluetooth is very good for a portable speaker. The bass is deep and you can hear the harmonics across the range without it getting tinny, popping or giving feedback. It has the capability of playing quite loud without loss of quality on its own merit (when volume is not determined by the source).
The range of the bluetooth is good, I was still able to listen without interference when I walked into the next room, but it couldn't quite cope any further and started to break up. It does say that it's capable of 30' range.
It takes about 3 hours for a full charge, and true to it's word provides the full 4 hours of continuous playback. If you connect via a Line In input you get even more playback at 12 hours! The speaker's own status is well indicated. A red and green LED light to indicate charge, power and low battery status. A blue LED light to indicate the bluetooth connectivity status.
The initial setup is very easy, the tiny manual was clear and concise, with the bluetooth pairing passcode clearly printed in several places. I was able to hook this up to my Samsung Galaxy S3 and Mac Mini no problems. I was even able to control pause and play from the speaker itself when played over bluetooth. Additionally the speaker also has volume up and down controls.Read more ›
Cons: When you approach maximum volume the sound becomes distorted/sounds "crackly", but I guess that's to be expected of a portable speaker of such a low price. In addition to that, sometimes it will cut out when connected via bluetooth, I don't know if this is because the battery is dying or for whichever reason this happens, I can't see it becoming a major problem as it doesn't happen all too frequently but I would like to investigate as to why this happens so I can avoid it because theres nothing more frustrating that you missing your favourite part of a song because your speaker cuts out.
The battery life is only 4 hours, which is impractical if you want to play songs in the park etc.
Unfortunately, upon turning on for a second use, it then inexplicably stopped working. No sign of life from it at all; it would not charge or operate and there was completely no sound coming from it.
I am returning it but I am hesitant to purchase another as I have read a few other reviews from people online that have also claimed that their jam speaker malfunctioned. Would be grateful to hear from others who have experienced similar issues because I really did like the sound and portability of it.
Never had a problem pairing it with desktop, iPad or Android phone. Very reliable and rechargeable battery keeps it working much longer than you might expect.
Delighted with this purchase.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS - This unit is a solidly built, heavy and genuinely substantial little beast. It gives a definite impression of being well put together and rather rugged. Now, of course, look and feel can be deceptive - and apparently rugged items can prove not to be - but I have "good feelings" about the unit on this score. First impressions, therefore, good.
APPEARANCE - Well, it's not going to win prizes for its beauty, but it has a "functional elegance" about it. It "looks the part", with simple and clean lines. My own example was finished in a anodized, green colour. I'm not sure if this is the only colour they come in, but as long as you don't have a bizarre loathing for satin finish mid green, then I doubt you'll complain too much at having this item on display in your house.
FUNCTIONALITY - Blue-tooth linking it to my Samsung Galaxy S2 was a doddle. Charging it was a doddle. The controls do what they're expected to do. What is there not to like? Well one thing, as it happens. Every time I switch it off and switch it back on the volume is set to a rather high "default", causing it to make a nasty (and loud) "start up noise" and then distort any music played through it (due to the excessive volume) until you turn it down again. It would be NICE if it "remembered" the volume you had used it at last time so that when you switched it on it was where it was when you switched it off. Shame it doesn't.
SOUND QUALITY - Here I fear I become negative, and it's partly my own fault. I love solo, classical piano music with a passion, and there is almost no type of music more "demanding" of a sound system than solo, classical piano.Read more ›

This is potentially a really nice piece of kit, but the internal battery seems dead. It works fine whilst plugged into a USB port, but dies immediately on unplugging. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
