Heavy hitter for such a small device.

I bought mine a week ago and I take them EVERYWHERE.
I ride my bike to work and around town so I keep my pair in netting on my backpack. The speaker can get REALLY loud and it doesn't distort when you crank it up.
It also uses true stereo when 2 are paired, one gets the left chan while the other gets the right, it's not just duplicating the audio stream to both speakers. The linking process is simple with minimal effort required to get them to work. Since one sounds great, two is AMAZING!
COMPLETELY worth the money.
My only real gripe is the USB charge cable that is included is under 6 inches long. However most people have extra Micro USB chargers to use anyway.

Great for Price
Posted by: sehenmich from: Tampa, FL on
My only issue for this device is pair several devices to this speaker. I had to call the company to get directions on how to do this, however these directions should have been in the owners manual.
To pair several devices you must:
1. hold down the play/pause button while holding down the power button.
2. next the speaker will turn off, if not turn it off after you hear the beep
3. turn the speaker back and hold the power button, should hear a beep
4. you should be able to pair the second device, find "jam plus" under bluetooth setings and enable that device.
5. repeat steps 1-4 for your 3rd device and so on

Best bang for your buck
Posted by: cmgtag from: on
I spent a lot of time in the Bestbuy store trying to find a good Bluetooth speaker. The sound that the Jam produces is amazing. I listened to the 200 dollar Dre and the 150 dollar JBL charge. I would have to say this one beat the Dre and was close behind the charge. But this thing is about a third of the price. Of course when you buy an extra Jam, to pair as a stereo pair, your price goes up. But you are still paying less and the pair has amazing sound.
I found that I actually prefer to use just the single Jam. It does sound really nice paired with another Jam, but I had more pairing issues and it cuts off if one dies. Using a single Jam is really easy and more convenient
One thing I did notice, the first time I used it, I tried to see if it really lasted 4 hours. I couldn't get the thing to die. It lasted for about 7-8 hours of play time. This was just the single speaker unpaired.

Nice little speaker but only one pairing at a time
Posted by: tpburris from: midland, tx on
I saw this speaker at Best Buy and thought I would give it a try. It was a convenient size and I liked that you can pair two if them. The sound was pretty good for a tiny speaker with good bass. That is the good.
The bad is that once you pair it to a device it will not pair with another unless you follow certain steps. Unfortunately those steps are not provided in the manual!! I only figured it out by reading other reviews and someone posted the steps. They had to call the company to get them. That is ridiculous. Especially since if you unpair from the first device it will not pair with another one or the original device again, even if you reset it. So after following the steps I was able to pair with both my phone and tablet, however when I turned blue tooth off on my tablet the speaker would not work through my phone even though it said paired. To use it with my phone I have to re pair again.
I realize this is not a top of the line speaker but it should be able to work on more than one device without having to keep setting it up. I only plan to use it with my phone so I may keep it but I have not decided 100% yet.
The steps for those who want to know are:
1. Hold down the play/pause button and the power button at the same time. Device will beep and turn off.
2. Turn device back on, blue light should flash fast
3. Scan for it from the device you are setting up. Pair it and you are good to go.
The other poster said you can do this for multiple devices but like I said when I tried to use the first device after the second it would not play from the first again.

Sounds Good, the wife loves it.
Posted by: JBear80 from: Ceres, CA on
Bought this gadget for my wife cause she wanted something portable that she could connect her android to. Worked fine at first then we could not get this thing to connect Bluetooth again, not her phone or mine. The instructions won't don't say anywhere but for best results, power up jams plus, and make sure your phone or device has Bluetooth turned on. Then if your device doesn't recognize jams plus right away then you must press and hold play/pause button until Bluetooth light blinks rapidly on the jams plus, then your device will recognize it. You might have to scan on your device, but it should work. Had we not figured it out, we were gonna take this thing back. Good thing we figured out how to use it, cause it is a cool little gadget. we plan on buying a 2nd one, I think the next one will be Black or Blue, enough with the pink. LOL!!

Powerful sound for the size
Posted by: MaryAnne from: Cleveland, OH on
I am impressed with the sound that comes out of this little monster. pairing with my iPod was very easy. If I would have known I would have bought two to have the real stereo sound, but I will go back and get another one.
Perfectly fits my needs, all my music comes from my iPod, iPhone or iPad. I am very happy with it.

Excellent for the Price
Posted by: CDWester from: Conway, AR on
I had to look here in the reviews and happened upon an end user who had posted the instructions to pair multiple devices. The guy at Best Buy from Geek Squad didn't know how to do it either.
Excellent for the price and portability and the ability to use in mono with one speaker or stereo with two of the Jam speakers.

I thought this Bluetooth device was pretty legit for the price until one day I decided to place it on top of my car and drive off. As I traveled about 60 mph down the highway i heard something bounce off the roof, and then I realized what it was.I looked back and saw it bouncing off the pavement, so I turned around and picked it up. This happened two weeks after I purchased it. My first thought was "great now I have to buy a new one", but I decided before I give up on it I should try it out. It surprised me when it turned on and I was even more surprised when it sounded exactly the same way as the day i bought it. It also fit in my backpacks side pockets perfectly.

Better sound quality and way louder!
Posted by: Dlux408 from: San Jose, CA on
Trying out the speakers in the Best Buy Store was the best way I could test them. After trying out the pill, the jam box and the sole mate, this little speaker blew them away. It was so much louder and still remained clear in the store. The bass wasn't muffled as well. I bought it right away since it was half the price than all the other units. I also like how the speaker faces up to get a more 360 sound rather than it pointing in one direction.
Wish that the battery life was longer, but I really haven't seen it stop at 4 hours. The micro usb charging port is great since I use this with my Samsung Galaxy S4 and I have so many of these cords laying around. Plus it still plays while it's charging!
I now use this little speaker all over the house, Very happy with this purchase.

Cheap and best for the money I spent
Posted by: MDUser from: on
I got it for 19 after using $10 credit from BB coupon. I had 2 other speakers to compare. I asked the sales rep about the difference. But he was clueless. This does not have any information about the wattage, ohm on the package inside or out. I liked the design. I was not expecting loud and fulfilling voice but it surprised me. It is very loud for a small room. It looks sturdy. I was able to easily connect it to my phone. It does not have microphone so you can not answer phone calls. The bass is okay but for the price it is perfect. I plan to test this with other speaker in stereo mode.
Cons:- Low Bass, no skip backward or forward button, okay battery, no helpful document/guide. Takes long time to charge. No microphone
Pros:- Perfect price, would be cheaper in upcoming holiday deals. Good enough for small room, easy set up.
