Ratings & Reviews
Hi-Fi With Style
I was skeptical about buying a bluetooth-based speaker system for my iPhone because I was worried that there might be some decompo sition of the audio quality due to the wireless connection. My worries were evaporated when I fired up my new Big Jambox. For those of you pecking at the dirt for a wireless speaker, you've just discovered one of the best seeds around.
Indoors, the Big Jambox preforms like nothing else; it puts the Bose wireless speaker to shame, and makes any AirPlay system look foolish. The bass tones are rich, full, clear and powerful but in perfect sync with the mids and highs, of which are also excellent. Any room can become full of crisp audio within seconds, and you can keep your iPhone/iPad/iPod on your person.
Outdoors, the Big Jambox is more of a Jekyl/Hyde kind of player. With the LiveSound audio processing on, the audio quality is fantastic, especially when placed on a patio table, per sae, in front of a wall or structure. If, however, the LiveAudio processing is disabled, there is a noticeable drop in clarity; the highs seem too muddy and overcome by the lows and sub frequencies.
The design of the Big Jambox is also a niche feature. For those of you who want something that will either blend in to the woodwork or spark up a conversation, the Jamboxes, in general, provide such choices. They're somewhat avant-garde, crisp, clean, but simple and easy on the eyes. The only problem I have with the Big Jambox is it's size and the lack of a carrying case or pouch. Otherwise, a fantastic product.
My final verdict; if you are living in a home where space is as valuable as the electrical bill, and/or you want a piece of art that interacts with the real world, the Big Jambox is perfect for you. …

Jawbone took what worked for the jam box and just made it bigger--and louder. We needed a louder speakerphone capability for my i Phone for conference calls and this was exactly what we were looking for. It sounds and works great for this. Not too mention music, movies, and videos sound great too. The packaging and accessories it comes with are impressive too. Just looks and feels like a high quality product. …

Small but great!
This little brick continues to impress! Has all the cool styling and quality that I had been looking for. This little brick pounds out some nice highs and lows. Has so many cool features and is a cinch to use. The quality is there, just wish it was a touch less expensive. (my only gripe) …

Build quality issues
From the launch of the small jambox, I have not spent a working day without it.
Unfortunately to say it is not the same for the Big Jambox, less than a year later the rubber on the passive subs have disintegrated.
The speakers are made of the same thickness material, not long till its rendered useless.
Rather disappointed. …

The "Wow" Factor
When I first saw the Big JAMBOX I thought, this won't have any bass to it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It has a great depth o f sound. It also connected easily via bluetooth with my iPhone 5. I really like crispness and volume it gives to music, the ease of use, and I am going to buy another one. I was also surprised that my iPhone doesn't have to be so close to it for it to receive the music perfectly. All in all, it is a great device if you love to listen to music. It can also blast the music very well without any distortion! Excellent. …

No Silent Mode
The hardware is solid. Good sound in a small footprint.
Unfortunately, the product is unusable in many scenarios. Specificall y, there is no way to disable the startup, shutdown, pairing, and un-pairing notification sounds on the Big Jambox. These loud tones are played any time the device powers up, powers down, or comes within range (or goes out of range) from one of its paired Bluetooth hosts. There is no way to disable these sounds, unlike on its smaller counterpart, the regular Jambox.
What's worse is that these notification sounds do not obey the current volume setting. So, even if the volume is set to low, these sounds play at full volume.
As a result, this device makes loud noises all the time. So, for example, if you ever thought of leaving this plugged in and using this as a speaker in a baby room, or in another part of your house, forget it. It will play the unpairing sound any time your iPhone or iPad goes out of range. And play the pairing sound the next time you are back in range. …

Through Bluetooth, there is a slight delay. It's not much of a problem, since watching movies does n ot require mobility and therefore the Audio In cable is a perfect solution. …

Probably alright it's got a pretty good sound balance, the bass isn't overly pumped like some speake rs. Obviously it's not audiophile quality but it's very good, nicely sharp - I'd be happy listening to classical music on it. …
