Summary: This is my 2nd Jambox that I own. I've always been a fan of the Jambox speakers- due to it's fun and aesthetically pleasing design. Considering now that I own 2 of these and a fan of the brand- there ARE a few of nuances that I must share.
Summary: ITS RATED UP TO 10 HOURS BATTERY LIFE ON THE BOX WHEN I GOT IT I CHARGED IT TO 3/4 BAT. LIFE I ONLY GOT 1 HOUR AND 10 MIN BEFORE IT DIED I GOT FULL CHARGE NEXT DAY GAVE ME 6-6.5 HOURS THE NEXT DAY 4 HOURS ALL AT DEFAULT VOLUME BATTERY LIFE INCONSISTENT
Summary: I bought the UE Boom first and had decided to return it because of shortcomings. Don't know how to add the link to that review but I gave it three starts as well. Below is what I'm looking for in order of importance: 1.
Summary: Do not update the firmware!! I'm on my second JAMBOX now, but after learning the problem I am past the warranty period and cannot replace it again. If you purchase directly from Jawbone, then the warranty will reset along with the replacement product.
Summary: Sound is loud and high quality compared to the Creative D100 ($55.) However, the +$120 for the upgrade in quality is questionable (I paid $170 for a used one). Twenty-seven days after use, the "bluetooth pairing" button broke.
Summary: Positives: Crisp sound, generous bass. Compact size Beautiful design Interesting sound effects Nice battery life Negatives: Bluetooth connectivity problems. Connectivity loss from Sony Tablet while surfing web. No carrying case for a hefty price tag
