Jawbone Jambox rocks the tunes and the conference calls

Jawbone Jambox rocks the tunes and the conference calls

Summary: There are plenty of wireless speaker solutions out there, but the Jambox from Jawbone really sets the bar with a small size and big sound that blew me away. Is this little speaker worth the $199.99?

  • Back in my youth, boomboxes were a popular way to enjoy loud music on the go. The Jawbone Jambox comes in a box stating "That was then" on the outside.

    Check out my full ZDNet Mobile Gadgeteer blog post for more detailed thoughts on the device and a video of it in action.

  • I though the Jambox would be a lot bigger and then after taking off the box top cover I noticed it is quite small with the words, "This is now" shown just below the speaker.

    Man, that is a lot of packaging (trees) and a lot of cables.

    i really do not get the flood of comments regarding super sound from jawbone jambox.. i do not find it to sound all that impressive( are my ears broken???) i tested one at a local best buy store. it was connected to a demo feed they were playing on it so i pulled the feed plug and paired it to my phone thinking it was just a bad sounding recording. well unless there was something actually wrong with that particular jambox... i was lees motivated than ever to 200.00 for something that was way hyped up but sounded like poop!!!! i asked the bestbuy drone working that dept. and he was all smilely and said yeah man this thing pops!!!!! well it sounds like it flops!!! i tried my samsung galaxy and blackberry curve...all the same BAD SOUND!!! Please someone correct me and prove to me i should go and invest 200.00 in this little box of mystery
