Jawbone Gets Even More Portable With Tiny Bluetooth Speaker: Mini Jambox Review: To Put That In Perspective
The Mini Jambox is exactly what it sounds like.
The Jambox, Mini Jambox is a rectangular speaker that connects to any device that has Bluetooth, like its bigger and older siblings.
An even smaller version of the brick like Jambox. While devices without Bluetooth can connect to a 5 mm jack that allows for wired playback. Music players or computers with Bluetooth can wirelessly send audio to the speaker. Actually, Jawbone is a company that prides itself on industrial design, and the Mini Jambox, constructed from a solid brick of aluminum that’s been chiseled away, is an attractive piece of hardware. Whenever suffering only a slightly dented corner, I inadvertently found out that it’s durable, the Mini Jambox sounded as good as ever after surviving a 4 foot fall onto concrete. Now look. Know what guys, I streamed Spotify, Pandora, NPR and Netflix from an iPhone, Moto X, and my computer, and the sound was, for the most part, very impressive.
When I was listening to music at the highest volume, I’m quite sure I would only occasionally hear distortion.
Despite its size, Mini Jambox was loud enough to be heard throughout my apartment.
I had to turn it down to double check if I wouldn’t disturb the neighbors, when listening to it outside one evening. Then again, for a wireless speaker that you can carry in your pocket, it sounds pretty darn good, the bass ain’t what you’d get with a larger speaker. I spent hours listening to the Mini Jambox as I packed and unpacked boxes, Know what, I moved apartments over Labor Day weekend. That is interesting. The Mini Jambox comes in nine anodized colors and goes on sale online on Wednesday.
It gonna be available at a handful of retailers later this month, jawbone hasn’t said when the speaker will begin to ship.
To put that in perspective.
At six inches long, one inch wide and just over two inches tall, the Mini Jambox is mostly about half the width of the Jambox, that is already a pretty small speaker. Like a phone or tablet, The idea behind the Mini Jambox was to design a speaker that, can be carried with you all the time, Travis Bogard, vice president of product management at Jawbone, said in an interview last week. You’re paying a premium for a beautifully designed portable speaker that’s also a fashion statement.
The biggest negative of the Mini Jambox, however, is the steep price tag.
At similar time, it’s a lot to spend on a speaker that’s not meant to replace your home sound system. At $ 179, it’s more expensive than plenty of the devices that stream music to it. A voice alerts you seconds later when pairing is successful. Eventually, go to the Bluetooth settings in your phone, tablet or computer and select Mini Jambox. Of course Pairing the Mini Jambox with my devices was easy. Consequently, Simply turn it on and hold down the pairing button on the side of the speaker until you hear a voice that says Mini Jambox is in pairing mode waiting to pair with your device. Actually I wasn’t overly impressed with the way the speakerphone sounded and neither were the people on the other end so I would switch to the handset when someone called. Generally, if it’s paired with a phone and it rings, The Mini Jambox also has a speakerphone, you can answer without disconnecting the Bluetooth. Nevertheless, It’s meant to be truly portable, and it’s not designed to replace your home stereo.
