Pros - Has SURPRISINGLY LOUD sound when connected via Audio Cable.
- Great Battery Life. 8 Hours battery life is true, but actually, depends on your usage and connection type.
- Handy, Portable, Capable, and a stylish little piece of Boombox technology.
Cons You'd probably use the Bluetooth connection if you only had to really carry your music player with you for convenience.
Bluetooth volume could use some boost and Live Audio too!
Leaves you wanting for more firmware upgrade, hoping it would improve.
Summary Actually, it's a really fun, amazing little device, as much as I want to make that sound less biased to justify the amount of money I paid for it. It is very handy if you have trips or hangouts that would make you want some music along. It isn't that loud when connected via bluetooth, which makes you wanting for more like somehow the volume would magically get louder. Live Audio really has its benefits if your listening to your Jambox up close and personal (1 meter max?). Live Audio gives you the sense that your music suddenly sounds better because it does have that effect of Binaural sounds but it really dampens the volume. Used most often while showering due to echoing inside the room. If you really wanted the Volume to go way up, you would have to connect to it via Audio jack! You might be surprised how much sound can come from such a small speaker, albeit, it is still not that loud but considering the size, woah!? Seriously though, update the firmware ASAP if there's a new one! Also, don't forget to turn on Audio Clarity or whatever they call it. If you're connected to the Jambox using the Audio Jack and you turned up the Volume to the max, you would have serious distortion unless you turn on the Audio Clarity option. It would lessen the hell out of that distortion, but still distorted. Also, the durability, as for me when the Volume is maxed, feels damaging, as if in the long run the tweeters are going to blow off and the Bass to explode. Also, it has that dancing sickness when the music is too "fun". Overall, this review would not sound professional, but I am giving this review as an extremely Picky Consumer when it comes to sound. P.S. I don't use the EQ settings considering I only have an iPod Nano 7th Gen but you can probably live with the sound the speaker outputs. I would like to edit the EQ though if I had a chance...
Pros - It is small, compact but produces a very loud sound
- can also be used as a speakerphone if it is connected by bluetooth to the iPhone.
- very good battery life
Cons - price is quite pricey.
Summary I bought the Jambox for my business travels. I was getting tired of listening to internet radio through the tinny laptop speakers. Other than that, my requirements are quite basic i.e. it has to be small, compact but produces a loud enough sound.
The Jambox met my requirements and the battery life is very good.

Pros Great sound, performance, and battery life! Customizable voices and speakerphone makes this a fantastic purchase !
Cons The bass is so heavy, it moves the product. I had this jamming and it vibrated itself until it tipped over and chipped the paint off the front grill. I had to color it back in with a sharpie. Gets dirty very easy because of the rubberized surface.
Summary Great purchase, albeit a little pricy. Be sure to brace it so it doesn't move from the heavy bass.
Pros Amazing quality sound
Goes pretty loud
Battery is better than my iphone
Cons Stay away from software updates. They are just more hassle than they're worth, and messed up the sound for a while.
Summary I love this little box. It is sleek, sounds great, and is perfect for a trip to the park or beach. The sound quality is amazing, and, though I do wish it went louder, for its size, it is unrivaled. Additionally, the overall build quality of the speaker is flawless. It looks great, and feels very very sturdy when you hold it in your hand.
Pros LOOKS VERY PRETTY,WELT BUILD
Cons AS LOUD AS IPHONE OR YOUR IPAD, DOESNOT ENHANCE YOUR EQUIPMENT
Summary NEEDS IMPROVEMENT ON VOLUME FELL SHORT
