Occasionally I make one of those spur-of-the-moment impulse purchases that doesn’t give me buyer’s remorse. I have been wanting a bluetooth speaker to improve the sound coming from my iPhone or iPad without resorting to plugging in the 3.5mm cable or using earbuds. I thought, “hmm, this will work great on the desk and even better when traveling or on the boat.”
So I purchase a small Jawbone Jambox was listed on Ebay for half the normal listed price not really expecting much more than portable speakers, but was instead very impressed … AND it even came in the more subdued black color as opposed to the bright colors (below). Yes, it was still expensive considering its an electronic gadget that will most likely collect more dust that get used, but boy was I surprise by the sound quality when it arrived. Very impressive to this “one eared” guy. Even better, it doubles as a decent speakerphone.
Biggest Sound, Smallest Package
JAMBOX delivers stunning hi-fi audio in a portable wireless speaker so compact you won’t believe it when you hear it. Unlike other portable speakers, JAMBOX is powered by a pair of proprietary, highly sophisticated acoustic drivers, unmatched in their ability to produce extreme high (tweeter) and low (woofer) frequencies from a single, ultra-small dome speaker. They work in concert with an innovative moving-wall passive bass radiator and airtight enclosure to deliver shimmering highs and thumping lows that you can literally feel – the richest sound all in the palm of your hand.
