Jawbone JamBox Review

The Jawbone JamBox is a compact Bluetooth speaker with a great design that can be customized via apps, speaker grilles and caps to your delight. It is a tiny box that can produce enough sound to fill a modestly-sized room. In looks, the Jambox is a 0.75-pound, 6-inch, colorful and playful rectangle made of glass-infused polycarbonate and a stainless steel grille, traced through with rippling honeycombs. The top and bottom of the box are made of soft rubber. It keeps controls to a minimum with only three controls on the top of the device: a plus sign (volume up), a minus sign (volume down) and a circle, (Bluetooth connect) which manage to evoke the design of a vintage NES controller. On the side, there's only a single on/off switch, a microUSB port for charging and a 3.5mm jack for devices without Bluetooth. The On/Off switch is topped by a small LED ring that signals whether the device is in pair mode or has a low battery. Branding is subdued, too: a small Jawbone Jambox logo surrounds the minus button, and a small logo is engraved on the speaker's bottom. Controls are also simple. Simultaneously pressing the volume buttons activates/deactivates LiveAudio, a BACCH 3D sound technology. Pressing the buttons again launches Sound Clarity mode, which delivers louder audio. A quick press of the Talk button let us answer calls; pressing the button for 2 seconds ignored the call. Simultaneously holding down the volume controls quickly mutes the speaker during voice calls. When you are not taking calls, pressing the Talk button announces the remaining battery life. Holding the Talk button for 3 seconds activates the DialApp, a Jambox-specific app that enables users to configure the Talk button to voice dial. However, the Jambox lacks controls for changing tracks, so you'll need to use your phone or other device. Its rechargeable battery takes 2.5 hours to full charge, which gives you a respectable 15 hours of playback or 500 hours on standby. Another nice feature is multiple device pairing. This means that you can have several Bluetooth devices connected to the Jambox at the same time. People can then send tunes over as and when they like. You can see a full list of all the paired devices if you connect the Jambox to the My Talk service, and delete old entries if you so please, although it's not necessary to do so. As a speaker, the Jambox sounds great, but not as great as a dedicated high-end dock or speaker system. The bass is fantastic, and the audio is clear and loud, but it's not meant for the dissection of audiophiles. It also functions as a speakerphone, to make and receive calls with a built-in 360-degree microphone, making it handy for conference calls. When receiving a call, the speaker pauses the music and a voice announces the phone number. There's no denying that the Jawbone Jambox is a very nice speaker indeed. Along the minimalist design and simple controls, the reliable pairing and fantastic sound quality all win it points. It makes a great desktop speaker, a speaker for picnics, small parties, or even for the office.

  • The Good :
    Great Sound, Excellent Design, Good Battery Life
  • The Bad :
    Can't Change Tracks On Speaker, Pricey
Our score:
4.5 / 5
