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.
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.
