Jawbone Jambox Portable Wireless Speaker

Jawbone has moved beyond its home in Bluetooth headsets (see previous post) to introduce the Jawbone Jambox portable wireless speaker.

The Jambox boasts oomph in a small package for streaming hi-fi audio, with proprietary acoustic drivers and moving-wall passive bass radiator to pump out 85 decibels of sound -- all in a 6-inch package (6 x 2 1/4 x 1 1/2 inches) that weighs 12 ounces.

The Jambox has a subtle design, with wrap-around metal grill and molded rubber top and bottom for secure positioning. The top has low-profile "+" and "-" volume controls, plus a Talk button for start/end call, spoken status, or special features like Voice Dial.

The power switch on the side also serves to start Bluetooth pairing, and as a status light. Or you can connect audio sources directly with a 3.5mm stereo audio input. There's also a microUSB port for charging the battery, which is rated to play approximately ten hours.

The Jambox also supports the Jawbone MyTALK online for downloading new apps, features, and software updates.

So if you have a hankering for better audio when on the go, the Jawbone Jambox provides strong sound in a relatively portable package, and can be yours for $199.
