Jawbone’s Jambox Might Be The Only Portable Speaker You’ll Ever Need (update)
UPDATED. Jawbone has been in the Bluetooth headset business for sometime now and done a damn fine job at it. Today the company unveiled their first speaker, the Jambox. It connects to any audio device with a compatible Bluetooth spec and pumps out tunes for up to 10 hours thanks to the built-in rechargeable battery.
Jawbone says that inside the box is “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.” If you want the short and sweet of that, the Jambox can crank up to 85db and has a 60Hz – 20kHz frequency response, which ain’t too shabby for its size (151x57x40mm – LWH).
If Bluetooth isn’t your thing, there is also a 3.5mm headphone jack, which means you should be able to wring some extra time out of the battery.
The Jambox comes in 4 distinctive colors (Black Diamond, Blue Wave, Grey Hex and Red Dot) and costs $199.99.
