Jawbone Bluetooth Speakers
Jawbone’s brightly coloured range of app-enabled Bluetooth speakers – JAMBOX – are stylish, portable, and big on sound. Ideal for whatever you have planned for the forthcoming heatwave; they are available in three different sizes and you can order each in customised colours if you so desire.
Within a year of its release the original JAMBOX became the top-selling digital speaker in the US; and with its eye-catching design and incredible sound quality it is easy to see why. The minimalist design incorporates three buttons: a plus and minus sign (for adjusting volume), and an all-purpose button for pairing it to your phone and accessing additional features, such as calls, battery life. You can currently pick one up for £129.99 from Jawbone’s online store.
The MINI JAMBOX
At under 9oz and less than an inch thin, this pocket-sized speaker (as the name might suggest) is the runt of the litter. But whilst it may be small it delivers impressive sound and volume for its size, and can easily be paired with another MINI JAMBOX for double the sound. There is also an integrated mic so that you can use it as a high-quality loudspeaker and take calls from your smartphone hands-free. It boasts a solid battery life for up to 10 hours of continuous playback, and an IPX5 watersafe coating to protect against splashes.
The BIG JAMBOX
It may be substantially larger than the previous models, weighing in at just over 1.2kg, however, the BIG JAMBOX is still fairly portable when it needs to be and could easily be moved from room to room or taken on holiday without much hassle. It also connects to your phone via Bluetooth, and innovative technology (including dual passive bass radiators and multiple-band compressors) means that it’s capable of deliver booming sound to larger rooms and audiences. It offers up to 15 hours of playback when fully charged, and is available for the tidy sum of £259.99.
The Jawnbone App
The Jawbone app, is available for iOS and Google Android smartphones, allowing you to enjoy quick and easy access to your saved and streaming music collections and control the speakers remotely via Bluetooth.
