We did side-by-side comparisons, and I found the Bose to be better sounding for bass-heavy music. All the really deep bass (like club music) came out slightly better in the Bose, but all the higher music (pop), podcasts and phone speakerphone sounded much clearer on my Big Jambox. I would say try to compare them based on how you want to use it, but I would say this is a fantastic choice. Plus the styling is so much better on my Jambox. I'm very happy with it. …

I found the I did research and everything seemed to have the Jambox come out on top of the Bose. My experience was very different. I found the sound to be thin and tinny, bass was marginal at best. I brought it back and got the Bose...night and day difference. The Bose sound is far superior, very full and great quality, like all the other Bose products I have. Jambox has some interesting features, but if sound quality is priority, pass on this one. …

H I bought this after doing research and the only downside I found while doing this was the bass wasn't as deep as Bose or others. However, I bought it and the bass came out just fine. The only draw back is the price. It's a tad high, but for the most part worth it. I recommend this to anyone looking for a nice, stylish speaker. …

Disappointing Wilted and Weak
I got this based on the recommendation of a sales person at the Apple store (previously had a Bose Sound Dock which I loved but th I got this based on the recommendation of a sales person at the Apple store (previously had a Bose Sound Dock which I loved but thought I might try a new brand). The sound was so underwhelming I was shocked. I have heard better from cheap portable speakers. I look for crisp highs and strong lows, but instead got wilted and weak. Tried many styles of music at many volumes and could not find anything this product does well. It is also temperamental when pairing with players. Returned to Apple. …
