Jawbone is famous for its Bluetooth headsets but its Jambox Bluetooth speaker is one of the best products we've bought this year. This diminutive and lightweight speaker can pair with any Bluetooth enabled computer, tablet and smartphone and offers up to 10 hours of surprisingly loud playback on something so small. 


The Jawbone Jambox is the perfect complement for anyone who enjoys their mobile devices but who is underwhelmed by the low volume and poor quality delivered by the built-in speakers.


With an output capacity of 85 decibels, the Jambox fills even the largest rooms. It is powered by a pair of proprietary, highly sophisticated acoustic drivers, they produce extreme high and low frequencies from a single, ultra-small dome speaker.


Not only does the Jambox deliver powerful sound, it also provides a bit of a powerful kick from the bass which you can actually feel.




We were able to set up the Jambox through Bluetooth with an iPhone, an iPad, various Mac desktops, a Google Nexus S and an LG Optimus  Pad. For devices without Bluetooth, Jawbone includes a handy audio connector that offers a plug and play solution.


Jawbone also includes a wall adapter and USB cable for charging the device as well as a carrying case for traveling. The Jambox is great for the home or for the office. In the office, the Jambox doubles as superb handsfree device.


The loud speaker and built in microphone makes conference calls and even Skype voice conferencing so it is a capable business tool event though using this device is really a lot of fun.


In terms of construction, features and performance and pricing, the Jawbone Jambox is an ideal Holiday must have.
