Review: Jabra Solemate beats Jambox at its own game

 

The Jabra Solemate takes many design cues from the Jawbone Jambox. And it makes a couple small improvements, too.

Great sound ; Rugged and portable

Audio a bit more directional than the Jambox

With the Solemate, Jabra took Jawbone’s Jambox head-on, aiming to both emulate it and improve upon it. Both speakers are good, but if you’re choosing between them, I’d give a slight edge to the Solemate: It’s more durable, less prone to vibration...

Jabra Solemate review

 

Following, so to speak, in the footsteps of Jawbone's popular Jambox , Jabra's Solemate is one of several compact Bluetooth speakers to hit the market this year and it's arguably one of the better ones, with a distinct, footwear-inspired design and...

The Jabra Solemate is a compact, well-constructed Bluetooth speaker with an eye-catching design, decent sound and battery life, and speakerphone capabilities. It comes with a water-resistant "sound bag" and has a hideaway line-in cable for connecting...

The Solemate could cost a little less and it doesn't sound great at high volumes.

The Jabra Solemate has a few small shortcomings, but overall it's a very solid compact Bluetooth speaker with a unique design.

As its name implies, the Solemate has been cleverly designed to resemble a sneaker, complete with a carrying strap that looks like the loop on the back of some athletic shoes. The speaker is pretty small, but it's got a little bit of heft to it,...

Jabra Solemate

 

The Jabra Solemate is a well-designed, excellent-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker, but it isn't great for taking calls.

Clear, loud midrange and high-end. Smart design integrates audio cable.

Mediocre speakerphone quality. Bass occasionally distorts.

Jabra Solemate Bluetooth Speaker Review: A Good Speakerphone

 

Easy to use as speakerphone ; App improves sound

Annoyingly loud voice guidance ; Music lacks vibrant treble tones

The Jabra Solemate makes it easy to answer calls, but average audio sinks it as a speaker for listening to music.

Meet Your Soulmate, the Jabra Solemate Bluetooth Speaker – Review

 

It's obvious that Jabra is looking to nip at Jawbone's Jambox heels with their freshman Bluetooth speaker. The construction of the Solemate is solid, the sound quality is above par, and connectivity is a breeze. What more could you ask for? Both are at...

Great design, voice guidance feature is neat, easy to use and set-up, very good sound quality for its size, perfect beach or party companion, Jabra really thought of everything.

Rubber on white Solemate easily gets dirty.

Jabra Solemate Review

 

The Jabra Solemate is a fairly competent Bluetooth speaker, which packs in a good amount of punch in a very compact form factor. The build quality is exquisite, and the look of the speaker is rather unique. The battery backup offers around 6 hours...

Very well-built, Unique and eye-catching design, Good sound quality for most music, Works well as a speakerphone, Acceptable battery life, 'Sound bag' is a rather useful add-on

Sound distortion at high volumes, Packaging is too elaborate

Jabra Solemate Review

 

Bluetooth Speakers are all the range nowadays. Atleast among accessory makers like Logitech who has the Mini-BoomBox, while Jawbone has the Jambox. Even audio...

Loud & Clear mid-range & High-end

Bass distortion in some tracks

The Jabra Solemate is still a great-sounding little wireless speaker that’s very recommendable.

Jabra Solemate Review

 

I'm not a big fan of wireless speakers, which is what the cool kids call battery-powered boomboxes these days. Nevertheless, there's a market for these Bluetooth-friendly gadgets that can play music streamed from your smartphone and hold an impromptu...

The battery life is nowhere near the claimed eight-hour mark. I managed to squeeze out anywhere between 5-6 hours depending on the ratio of wired and wireless music playback. However, I must admit that I had been playing the speakers at full blast for...
