Excerpt: I picked up this speaker on sale and recommend it to everyone. The sound is amazing and also it's battery life. It is louder than a Bose sound link. Battery gauge is on screen for iPhone 5. Only downside to it is that it doesn't come with a case for it like the other jambox's.
Summary: So happy with the Jawbone and grateful that a friend encouraged me to go for it even though it seemed pricey. I love that I can move it to wherever I am in the house, even outside. And the sound quality is great for everything from music to movies. And you can't beat the long living battery.
