TechBargains Review - Jawbone Jambox
17 April 2014
Summary: The Jawbone Jambox certainly made an impression. Unfortunately, that impression degraded the longer we used it. It looks and feels great, is simple to setup and use, but the sound quality is so variable that it's difficult to know what any given user's experience will be like.
Conclusion: The Jawbone Big Jambox isn't quite the equal of the Sony SRS-BTX500 (Est. $300) for sound quality, but its battery life is far superior -- up to 15 hours, as opposed to six. Like the Sony, it has a speakerphone feature that reviewers say works very well, and its controls are very easy to use.
Pros: Good sound quality, Excellent battery life, Useful features
Cons: Bulky, No carrying case, Problems with pairing
Excerpt: Jawbone's latest portable speaker untethers the mobile audio experience for smartphones, tablets and notebooks via Bluetooth. Yes, this device is bulkier and pricier than the original Jambox , but the Big Jambox also promises much bigger sound along with apps to customize the experience.
Summary: As I say before: the Jawbone Jambox fits well in a pocket, have a good sound quality, bluetooth and 3,5mm jack exit and an attractive design.
I've buy it about 1 year ago, i can carry it away wherever i want, maybe without cable, in fact it can works also with bluetooth.
Pros: Fits well in a pocket, good sound quality, bluetooth and 3,5mm jack exit, attractive design.
Cons: Maybe can it have more watt power, nothing else.
Conclusion: The Jawbone Big Jambox doesn't offer the best audio quality among portable Bluetooth speakers, but its long battery life, speakerphone features, and generally solid sound make it worth a listen.
Pros: Doubles as a speakerphone. Good sound quality with powerful low end for its size. Clear voice quality. Long battery life.
Excerpt: The Jambox is back. But now, little baby’s all grown up. The Big Jambox from Jawbone (yes, the hands-free headset people) builds upon the success of the company’s original Jambox portable speaker, keeping the attractive no-frills design, but wrapping it around a larger box that’s louder and has more...
Pros: Big, clear sound. Tight package. Controls for skipping tracks, changing the volume and answering calls are right on top. Over 12 hours of play time on a rechargeable battery. Solid Bluetooth performance. Under three pounds. Eight rubber feet keep it from shimmying around.
Cons: Price makes you think too hard. Size matters: requires an external method of conveyance, and it won’t squeeze into your travel carry-on. Bass is clear and not flabby, but it could pack more punch. Needs the wall wart to charge quickly. Spatial enhancement feature is meh.
Summary: Although there are a number of smartphones with capable speakers (Nokia 5800/X6/N8 all come to mind), many have loudspeakers which are rather weedy if we're honest. Making podcasting listening around the house somewhat of an ear-straining experience and making music playback almost a no-no.
Excerpt: We’ve been fans of the Jawbone Jambox ever since its late 2010 launch. Although its $200 price tag is sure to cause a double-take, living with a Jambox for the last six months made me a believer in the portable Bluetooth 2.1 speaker powerhouse with 10-hour battery (depending upon use).
Pros: Binaural recordings sound great, Switching LiveAudio on and off is a snap, Jambox speaker is a mighty tyke
Cons: LiveAudio doesn't work with all music, LiveAudio softens volume and dynamic range on some tracks, No easy way to determine if a track will benefit from LiveAudio
