[Review] Jabra Solemate: Music for your soul on-the-go
3 April 2014
Conclusion: Jabra continues to deliver some outstanding products, and the Jabra Solemate isn’t an exception. It’s a highly portable device which not only looks good but performs well. Some may choke on the price although I’d say you get what you pay for.
Pros: Excellent, quirky, unique design, Simple to use, NFC is a plus, Good audio quality, Plays nice with a wide range of devices
Cons: Audio breaks at very high volumes, Could be better in higher frequencies, Slightly pricey
Excerpt: IF IT ain’t broke, don’t fix it, or so they say, and with the latest version of the Jabra Solemate, the company has taken this adage to heart — apart from different colours and one feature, this Solemate looks much like its predecessor.
Pros: Easy pairing; long battery life; microphone quality is good.

Meet Your Soulmate, the Jabra Solemate Bluetooth Speaker – Review
22 May 2013
Summary: It’s obvious that Jabra is looking to nip at Jawbone’s Jambox heels with their freshman Bluetooth speaker. The construction of the Solemate is solid, the sound quality is above par, and connectivity is a breeze. What more could you ask for?
Pros: Great design, voice guidance feature is neat, easy to use and set-up, very good sound quality for its size, perfect beach or party companion, Jabra really thought of everything.
Excerpt: In recent months we tested a number of portable speakers. Especially the wireless Bluetooth manage to raise some eyebrows around the office from time to time, but they're so expensive that we can't really recommend them without any reservations.
Excerpt: Jabra is literally kicking down the door to the portable speaker market. The Jabra Solemate Portable Bluetooth Speaker delivers big sound in a compact, fashionable sneakerlike design. Product name puns aside, can this $199 speaker stomp the competition?
Jabra SOLEMATE The Ultimate Portable Speaker Review
11 November 2012
Conclusion: As mentioned in the beginning we used the SOLEMATE for just over 20 days both during a trip to the countryside and while writing other reviews since that's pretty much the only time when there's no external noise.
Summary: The Jabra Solemate has a few small shortcomings, but overall it's a very solid compact Bluetooth speaker with a unique design.
Pros: The, is a compact, well-constructed Bluetooth speaker with an eye-catching design, decent sound and battery life, and speakerphone capabilities. It comes with a water-resistant "sound bag" and has a hideaway line-in cable for connecting non-Bluetooth devices.
Cons: The Solemate could cost a little less and it doesn't sound great at high volumes.
