Bigger Jambox Makes a Bigger Boom


The Big Jambox from Jawbone builds upon the success of the company's original portable speaker, keeping the attractive no-frills design, but wrapping it around a larger box that's louder and has more battery life.

Big, clear sound. Tight package. Controls for skipping tracks, changing the volume and answering calls are right on top. Over 12 hours of play time on a rechargeable battery. Solid Bluetooth performance. Under three pounds. Eight rubber feet keep it...

Price makes you think too hard. Size matters: requires an external method of conveyance, and it won’t squeeze into your travel carry-on. Bass is clear and not flabby, but it could pack more punch. Needs the wall wart to charge quickly. Spatial...

Jawbone Big Jambox


It was back in February when we first caught wind a beefier version of Jawbone's Jambox, thanks to some less-than-stealthy ninjas at the FCC. Today it's officially here. Dubbed Big Jambox, this $300 Bluetooth speakerphone and "smartspeaker" is...

Big sound in a small package ; Stylish and portable ; Excellent looks ; Exceptional battery life

May distort at louder volumes ; Live Audio can be hit-or-miss

If you've been eyeing the Jambox but crave richer audio, we'd recommend its big brother without much hesitation

Fer' Listenin to Music!


It paired with all of my devices. Mac Mini, iPhone, iPad, HP Laptop. Used it on brew day for the first time. It sounded amazing on the back patio. Even more amazing in the garage when we relocated because it was 20 degrees on the patio and 40 degrees...

I wish it was about $150 instead of $220

Jawbone Big Jambox review


The original Jambox was one of those devices that just surprised everyone. A tiny box that produced enough sound to fill a modestly-sized room. It wasn't cheap, of course, but it was sturdy and had a decent battery.

Brilliant sound, lots of functionality, looks amazing, portable

Expensive, doesn't come with carry case

A fabulous speaker that has more than enough features to make it a replacement for your home hi-fi. It's powerful enough to fill a good-sized room, and looks utterly brilliant too and although it's expensive, we think it earns its keep

An enlarged Jambox portable speaker with call conferencing proves bigger isn't always better.

Clean, stylish design ; Excellent projection of audio ; High quality portable speakerphone

Average audio quality & weak bass performance ; Expensive ; Heavy, impractical travel design ; Bluetooth streaming lacks aptX

, a virtual 3D spatial sound technology, which aims to trick the ear into hearing wider stereo separation. The original Jambox had this feature added via a firmware update and like the Jambox, the Big Jambox can enable/disable it by simultaneously...

A fun-sounding box that will blast out your tunes anywhere

Funky design; highly portable; good Bluetooth connection; goes very loud; bold and lively presentation

Could do with a touch more refinement and subtlety

Jawbone Big Jambox: Sound quality The Big Jambox sounds fun and full of boundless energy, its portability and relatively compact size belying the big sound it can deliver.

Jawbone Big Jambox


Sound. Loud sound. Beefy sound. Clear sound. Sound that you can take with you. Sound from your smartphone, tablet or mp3 player. Sound that looks great. This is what Jawbone's Big Jambox delivers and a little bit more.

Great design; Excellent sound; Long lasting battery life

At $359 it nudges portable speakers that connect via WiFi or Wireless direct
