TechBargains Review - Jawbone Jambox
17 April 2014
Summary: The Jawbone Jambox certainly made an impression. Unfortunately, that impression degraded the longer we used it.

There are also a wide range of factors in any environment that might be at fault, so we won't go so far as to recommend against a purchase, but if at all possible, do take the time to test the...
Summary: Like its smaller brother, the $299 Jawbone Big Jambox has a stylish design and clever features, such as LiveAudio and speakerphone capability. Those who are solely interested in audio quality will prefer the Bose SoundLink, though that device lacks the ability to make and receive calls. But if you're looking for a multipurpose portable speaker with large sound, the Big Jambox is worth a listen.
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.

Which is where portable speakers come into their own, especially the Bluetooth variety, giving maximum volume without messing around with wires.
