Classic looking portable speaker. The clarity and sound from a relatively small cabinet is superb especially in Live Audio mode. Given the opposition I think the Big Jambox is good value for money. The downside is the weight, so if you want to use it round the home then it fits the bill. If you want to take it on holiday go for the smaller version.
I bought this for my wife's birthday.. She teaches dance so needs a speaker with volume and depth. She used the Big Jambox for her weeks teaching, we watched a couple of movies and used it from 3pm to 9pm at a friends BBQ. Unbelievable battery life and a great sound with no distortion at full volume... Looked and listened to Bose Soundlink then the Big Jambox, definitely preferred the Jambox. Just buy one you'll love it
