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 I was skeptical about buying a bluetooth-based speaker system for my iPhone because I was worried that there might be some decomposition 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. …

Silent mode now available
The latest version 2.0 of Jambox software provides a silent mode which mutes the sound effects for startup, shutdown, pairing, etc The latest version 2.0 of Jambox software provides a silent mode which mutes the sound effects for startup, shutdown, pairing, etc. Unfortunately this is not documented even in the latest manual. This became available roughly April 2013.
To activate silent mode, hold down the Talk and Minus button while powering it on. The sound effects will stay off until you hold down Talk and Plus buttons while powering on.
Before silent mode was available it was difficult to use this device in a public situation as the sound effects would periodically happen (apparently responding to Bluetooth operations from mobile devices in the audience). It could also not be discreetly powered on and off. It was a mistake to ship the device without that functionality, however it's water under the bridge and it works OK now.
Another design shortcoming which is a constant, persistent irritant to customers is failure to use a standard micro USB connector. The USB cable is needed for programming the speaker behavior, such as voice caller ID, voice announcements of battery life & pairing status, etc.
Designers of ultra-miniaturized devices can at least argue the fractional millimeter saved is worthwhile. By contrast the Big Jambox is a full size device and there is no space issue. If you lose the proprietary USB cable, you can't program the device. This problem is not unique to Big Jambox, it is so common the EU has passed legislation to outlaw proprietary USB charging connectors on mobile devices.
Besides these two self-inflicted and unnecessary design mistakes, the audio quality is pretty good, max volume available is good, form factor is good, Bluetooth connection speed and reliability seems good. …

Magnificent Sound, Bass, Hi-Fi, Clear / No Cracking, Distortion

- crisp and clear sound, even on its maximum volume, no distortion at all!
- great bass, not too much, just right
- the Hi-fi, surround-sound, feature is undeniably noticeable, and what a difference!
