    Great Sound, Small Footprint

    I hung a 20"ish tv and wanted a sound bar for my wife's office. There weren't many options that were small enough to fit. I have a chromecast on the tv so bluetooth isn't really needed but its a nice bonus. I got a good looking cheap shelf at Lowes and couldn't be happier. Great sound without the need of a sub! Happy wife happy life!

    pleasantly surprised

    so i picked this up today. the white looks so perfect with all of my idevices since my iPhone,iPod,iPad are all white. the sound is out of this world. you get the true full features of what the song/movie/whatever you use it for should sound like. the fact that you can play pause and skip right from the jam box is fantastic and all the options you get and will get in the future are fantastic. my one dislike is the power cord i wish they had used the same one as the smaller jam box with the folding plug and the usb option

    AWESOME

    Just love this speaker! Sounds just as good as our $1000 Stereo System we own. Pairing to any bluetooth devices very simple. I've paired it to my IPad and IPhone. All I got say is don't turn it up to load outside unless you want your neighbors to complain! Unless they like loud music! I love bringing it outside on my patio. Had some friends over and they couldn't believe how good the bass sounded and the clarity. They all want to go buy one now!!!! It takes about 2.5hours to fully charge. And the charge last about 12hours or longer! Pricey, but worth every bit! Does not come with a case, that sells for $50. Can't wait to bring it on our camping trip

    Great Bluetooth speaker with long battery life. Was going back and forth about this speaker or the Beats XL pill or Bose Soundlink III. Ended up picking Jawbone because of the extra features. The fact that I can connect my cell and my laptop at the same time sold me. Initial testing of range was a bit disappointing and found my laptop had to be a lot closer to the speaker, but when using my cell for say Spotify I had more flexibility with range. For example, using it in a 3 story town house if my cell was playing Spotify on the third floor (plugged in charging) and the speaker was on the 2nd floor I had no problems. However if my laptop was playing Spotify on the 2nd floor and I brought the speaker to the first floor garage/ outside to grill it did not work and I would have to use my cell that I had on me to play music while grilling. One last complaint was my laptop has windows 8 and the pairing process took some research and a youtube video because once paired you must click something before it disappears to adjust settings on the laptop. Sound is awesome for what the speaker really is and I am very happy with the purchase. Receiving calls on it is a nice plus too where had no problems hearing people or having problems with them hearing me being about 5 ft away from it. Read some things about the jawbone app for the phone and decided to stay away because it does stuff to your phone you don't want which was not worth it to me to get the added benefits of tweaking the speaker.

    This is my first sound system purchase as I would normally listen to music off of my laptop or on the radio. I decided to upgrade when I had a nice accumulation of rewards credit. I listen to the radio daily for news and I can hear it all over my apartment in the morning when getting ready. Listening to music on here is incredible. I was debating between this and the Beats Pill but I listen to mostly rock, folk, metal and related genres with very little pop or hip hop and the Beats Pill was extremely basey. The Jambox sound is much better for the type of music I listen to. I also plugged it into my TV last night to watch a movie and it was awesome. Very little complaints so far but I only have it for about a month or two so we'll see how long it lasts for. My only complaints is that it would be great if it came with a remote because when I tried changing the volume on my TV it wouldn't change on the Jambox so I had to get up and do it manually on the box. I also wish that it would give you a warning when your battery is running low so you can plug it in before it immediately dying on you. Otherwise I'm so glad I upgraded!

    We had been contemplating what speaker to get for a couple weeks and just happened to go into Best Buy and see the Jambox (specifically ONLY the dark grey one) was on sale! Not planning on making a purchase that day we see it is $65 less than all others. All the same exact models...yes, even the hot pink one was full price!;-) We thought it had to be different, a mistake, or somehow crappier than the others. We were wrong. We were just REALLY LUCKY!! After all of that, this Bluetooth speaker has EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS! We love it! Amazing full sound on all levels and crystal clear! We've taken ours everywhere: on the boat, tailgate parties, camping, even just on the back deck and the garage. Whether using our MP3 player plugged into it, our iPhone5, laptop or even desktop computer, the battery in the Jambox always seems to last forever! The only thing I could say that could be considered a "con" would be that when it does need to recharge it can't plug into a car charger, therefore making it kind of a bummer when you've been on the boat or camping and it actually dies. Other than that, this is an awesome speaker and what a bargain!!!

    Really good sound and excellent battery time

    First I bought a Bose speaker ($300 USD), the sound was excellent, but not loud enough and the battery only lasted like 3 or 4 hrs at max sound level; I exchange it for this one, the sound is really great, and it is loud enough to start a party with your friends at open doors, plus it last close to 10 hrs at a really high volume, if you add the fare price ($250 USD) of it, then you have got a really good deal yourself. I have not tried out the software update it comes with, no need for it yet, but I look forward to the additional features these updates could add. Note: It interacts seemlessly with iPhones and iPads.

    "Hey is that freedom rock" nah bra just my jambox. So you want to go outdoors or the beach and you want a portable speakers , two choices good and best. You see there's no good and then better only the best which is jambox. Tiny weak , poor sound quality sort battery life devices are not for me. Jambox gives you thumping bass with detailed highs other portable speakers cannot simply put want the best pony up and get the best. Versatility and ease of bluetooth connectivity with apps jawbone comes thru with another quality product.

    I read mostly good reviews of this speaker and couldn't resist when it was a Deal of the Day and the price was great. I wish I had gotten 2 or 3 of them! This speaker produces really great loud sound and plenty of bass for its size. You can link several to one device in order to play music in multiple rooms at once, so that will be next! A great upgrade from my mini portables (Beats Pill and Jabra Soulmate) that max out on volume at a low level. Next to Bose, this is hard to beat and cool in the sapphire color!

    This is a pretty powerful speaker for its size that has really decent sound quality and clarity! It doesn't quite rival the stereo systems we all had (and some of us still have) in the 70s and 80s but in an era where the electronics keep getting smaller and smaller and sound quality suffers because of it, the jam box is pretty amazing! I love this speaker and use it every day. My only complaint is after only two weeks of use the unit stopped charging then would turn itself off 2 seconds after turning on. It seems that others have had issues with charging also. I returned it to Best Buy and exchanged it for a new one, so far so good. I'm hoping they have the issues fixed and I have no trouble with this one because I really like this speaker

    Was looking to run sound with dedicated spreakers out to my deck area. After thinking of the work involved drilling holes in my concrete wall, wire runs and the cost of a quality outdoor speaker, I decided to look at bluetooth speakers. Spent about an hour in Best Buy looking at the different brands (and there are many), but it's hard to compare sound in a crowded store. I finally landed on the big Jambox and i'm glad I did. Setup was easy, iPhone and iPad connect with no problems, sound quality and quantity was very surprising for such a small box. I LOVE this thing. Put it on the deck and enjoy the sound all over my back yard and pool area.

    I tried all the speakers at Best Buy, after getting a Beats Pill that failed to perform (wouldn't charge and had crackles), and the Big Jambox was the clear winner. The sound is incredible for a small speaker, with plenty of range and no distortion. All of the features worked perfectly straight out of the box, and pairing with my Bluetooth devices was also foolproof. The speaker holds a charge for many hours, and although it's bigger than a big Pill, it's very stable and heavy, like a brick, wherever it sits. I love the Big Jambox, and I'm recommending it to anyone looking for a quality Bluetooth speaker.

    Bought this for my boyfriend, as he expressed how much he wanted it last Christmas (2013's Christmas). The sound quality is amazing. The bass of the sound can be heard through the whole apartment without losing the music quality as you go further away from the device. On top of that, it's really easy to connect to and can be used for any type of music device, portable or not. Such a great investment, for house parties or even if you wanna take it on a picnic. I definitely recommend!

    Best Bluetooth speaker out there

    I have purchased different bluetooth speakers in search of the best one and finally found it. It easy to connect to your phone and it connects back to your phone easily if you disconnect from it. the play and pause buttons work great to control it without having to get into your phone to push play or to fast fwd or rewind, it also has volume control on it. The sound quality is amazing, I personally like it better than the Bose sound link iii. It holds charge like it says 13 to 15 hour charge depending on how loud you play your music.

    I purchased this to help me facilitate a conference. We used it for music and to amplify voices for participants far from the guest speakers. Works great with Bluetooth on my iPhone. I like using it around the house or outside for parties. It sounds as good to me as our home stereo/theater but it's way easier to pickup and move.

    I absolutely loved this product. I would recommend this to anyone who lovesvtheir music as much as I do. Unfortunately, if you happen to misplace the charging cord, the only way to replace it is to order from manufacturer. Disappointingly, I had to takeadvatage of my insurance on this item since best buy stopped carrying unembarrassed the same time I lost my cord. Ivwould definitely purchase this item or one very similar again.

    Overall the Big Jambox is a decent speaker. Is it a top of the line, audiophile unit, no, but for the price and feature mix it is a solid performer. I should add that I am very picky when it comes to audio quality so keep that in mind when reading this. I originally bought it for my living areas but after using it for a bit decided that I wanted something a little more audophile quality. The issues I had were the lack of depth of bass and that when turned up loud it lost a lot of the sound clarity. Again, I am very picky and I don't think a lot of people would have the same issues I have. I have since moved to using this for outdoors and a backup and it works great for those situations.

    The Jambox is used via bluetooth in a Zumba class that provides a great sound with deep bass that helps Zumba participants get into the rhythm and achieve a full work out. It is very easy to use and pair with bluetooth devices, or easily connect via headphone jack. when in bluetooth mode, you can easily control your bluetooth device from the jambox. The Jambox is used 4-5hours per week and a full battery charge easily last almost a month.

    Overall this product is Amazing, Jawbone lands a knock-out punch over Bose. Finally a product that not only competes with B, but surpasses them with quality of sound! Overall I use this product everywhere imaginable and love it!!!! Place the Big Jambox on the floor with carpet and experience rich deep base and clear quality highs and mids. All I can say is, don't hesitate to buy this product, you will not be disappointed!!!

    Bought this as gift for my son & his family. They have new home with a fabulous backyard/pool. Needed some sounds for all the parties they have. This box performs beyond expectations. Sound is wonderful from all over the yard and the fact that it is so easily portable and controlled from wherever they might be makes it just about perfect!
