Customer Reviews

The quality of the sound and the volume they produce is amazing for such a small speaker.
Ralph Maclean
After many hours of research online,looking for the best portable bluetooth speaker,I narrowed it down to the Jawbone Big Jambox and Bose Soundlink II speakers.
Robert Smith
It's small and portable, making it easy to move from room to room, bring to the backyard, or take on a trip.

I'll admit it, I've got a bit of a fetish for speakers. ESPECIALLY mobile speakers. I tend to get just about every noteworthy new set that comes along. So it's no surprise I immediately had to try BOTH of the big kids on the bluetooth block: the SoundLink from Bose and the Big Jambox from Jawbone. I had already been impressed with the sound and form factor of the Bose (which has been out a while now) My Big Jambox arrived last Wednesday and I could finally put them side by side for a "jam-off".

The answer: Both sound better and more powerful than you could believe from their relatively small size
Each has it's own strengths.

BIG JAMBOX edges out the Bose on the following points:
* Speakerphone. Perhaps the single biggest advantage of the Big Jambox is the excellent speakerphone they built in. It is true full duplex and a joy to talk on. I even tested it with FaceTime on iPad and iPhone- both work great. (The Bose has no speakerphone, when a call comes in, it simply pauses your music.)
* Clearer mid and high tones
* The LiveAudio featurewhich I like but none of my friends do. This is a simulated 3D surround sound mode It can only be correctly enjoyed while listening in a small space directly in front of the speaker, so it is of limited use, but for certain pieces of music the effect is breathtaking and almost freaky when you close your eyes you could swear certain instruments are behind you.
* Easy firmware updates and custom settings just like the original Jambox
* Longer battery life.
* Trendy/cool looking

BOSE SOUNDLINK edges out the Big Jambox on the following :
* Notably deeper, richer, more mellow lows.
* Respectable/professional looking
* Did I mention the deeper, richer lows?

After many...and I mean many evaluations of bluetooth speakers, it has ultimately come down to the Bose S*******k and the Jawbone series of speakers, both the Jambox and Big Jambox. My 20 years of audio engineering and music composition have helped me be able to identify the right combination of true-to-recording sound, clarity, etc. for music. We ALL want our music to sound...well, amazing, right? For the $, the Big Jambox gives a HUGE sound...great low end representation, mids and highs are clear and crisp. Maybe a little too crisp for my ears on cymbals / vocals / synth overall, but that's an EQ thing. Bose S*******k has better low-end overall, mids are truer, but lacks the high-end definition in comparison to the Big. Stereo separation is truer on the Big and the buttons / features / software update-ability is a plus as well for the Big.

Jawbone has done a smart thing by keeping their speakers software based, and user update-able. Meaning...EQ settings, voices, features, BT updates etc. are all just a USB cord away. Love that feature on my Jambox, and appreciate Jawbone giving me (the end user) the ability to customize my device. Wish the Big came with some kind of case / cover...but that's another $50 accessory to tack on later. And WiFi audio would have been nice on there as well...oh well.

All in all...my vote is with the Big. Way to go Jawbone...

I did my research for almost a month. I read all reviews that are available in the internet for this product. I read all the comparison reviews between Jawbone Big Jambox and Bose SoundLink. Last week I finally decided to go to an electronic store (Fry's) and compare myself the two Bluetooth speakers side by side. I played all kinds and genres of music on on both speakers alternately for an hour inside the store. In my opinion the Bose SoundLink has more warm and deeper bass than the Jawbone Big Jambox. However, the Big Jambox has a very defined and crystal clear mids and highs. The bass of Big Jambox is powerful and tight. Always present at all levels of volume. It has a better overall sound than the Bose SoundLink for my taste. Bose SoundLink sounds muffled because of the overpowering of the warm deep bass. If your music is hip hop and rap then SoundLink is for you. If your music is acoustic, jazz, orchestra, choral, classical, pop, rock then Big Jambox is for you because in my opinion the Big Jambox doesn't alter the sound. You'll hear the music how artists intended the music for the listeners to hear it. The Big Jambox also produces louder overall sound the Bose SoundLink. Also, the Big Jambox has longer battery life by a mile. That is a deal breaker for me. Not to mention that you can also use the Big Jambox as a speaker phone! The call is clear on both ends. How's that for a bonus? ;) I'm listening to a Brian McKnight music as I type this. For this size my mind is blown by the performance.

Note: This is an adaptation of my review of the Bose SoundLink Wireless Mobile Speaker - Nylon, which is also an excellent option, as noted below.

I recently purchased several bluetooth speakers to test in my bedroom and office in hopes that I would like one enough to keep. Before I get into the details, I'll cut to the chase and let you know that I decided to keep the Big Jambox over the Bose SoundLink. While the Bose puts out a truly impressive amount of sound from such a small, portable package, the sound quality is not as good as the Big Jambox at low to normal volume levels.

The products I tested were the Bose SoundLink Wireless, Jawbone Jambox, Jawbone Big Jambox, and Logitech Wireless Boombox. Without getting into too much detail about other products, I found that the two best speakers for filling a medium to large room with music were the Bose SoundLink and Big Jambox, which isn't a surprise given the that these are the two most expensive speakers of the bunch, both priced at $299. Ultimately, though, I felt that the Big Jambox sounded and looked better (for my taste), so I returned the Bose and Logitech Wireless Boombox (I also kept the little Jambox for my office, which doesn't sound nearly as good as the bigger speakers, but makes for a great ultra-portable speaker for half the price ($150)).

My biggest problem with the sound of the Bose Soundlink is that there's far too much bass at low to normal volume levels. This is a problem for me because the bass clouds the rest of the music -- vocals become difficult to hear and the treble is nearly non-existent. The Bose sounds muddy and veiled under these circumstances, especially in small rooms.
