Can such a tiny speaker really offer "immersive" three-dimensional binaural audio?

  • Summary: Listening to the swirling introduction of the The Cars, "Moving in Stereo" was like standing in a new wave Osterizer with Paulina Porizkova running her fingers through my hair... and that's a good thing. Unfortunately, the effect only works on tracks recorded with three-dimensional binaural listening in mind. Thus, I found myself constantly toggling the feature for each new track in order to test the benefits. Behavior that'll get old, quick.
  • 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

  • Summary: Not entirely new as I am told this first launched more than eighteen months ago. However at an event specifically to showoff its larger sibling I left with one of these smaller units to review. The brand new larger unit will follow later.
