Great product- BUT I do have a few nuances to share

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. 1) occasionally my bass rattles sounding almost unnatural 2) static sounds when connected via bluetooth 3) hard to set up initial pairing w multiple devices.
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. Portability - if I needed just a home speaker, I would definitely not go with bluetooth for obvious quality limitations 2. Speakerphone capabilities - I wanted a speaker with the ability to pause the music and let me speak through the speaker. 3.
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. (come to learn this is common) I am shipping it back to Jawbone (as it is still under 1yr warranty) at my own expense. If you choose to buy this product be VERY gentile with the pairing button!!!
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.
Speaker blown after limited use, warranty honored by Jawbone

Summary: Original review I had high hopes for the Big Jambox. Bought it in May 2012 and have used it for on average an hour per day since then. So ballpark 350-400 hours of use. Nothing crazy in terms of how we've used it: never too loud because it frankly didn't sound great at high volume, and we've babied it whenever moving it from its home on our electronics shelf. No drops, no water spills, no kids using it as a stepping stool, no dogs eating it etc.
Summary: The speakers work great and battery life is excellent. Construction quality is top notch too. My complaint is the lack of volume. Unless you're in a very quiet room, with the speakers close to you, they just don't have enough power. Consider the bigger jambox or the Bose speakers.
