Fantastic speakers in a small package,
This review is from: Jawbone BIG JAMBOX Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - White Wave - Retail Packaging (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I have quite a fixation on getting the best audio out of my devices and I have to say that I am extremely pleased with Big Jambox! I had never tried the original Jambox, so I did not know what to expect. I tried the Big Jambox side by side with Bose SoundLink and I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted the Jambox!
Better than Bose in the following aspects:
- SOUND: Very good mids and highs, a bit subdued lows, but it's there. I haven't yet tried playing around with the EQ settings to boost the bass, but I haven't felt the need to. If you really want thumping base, you may want to buy a full fledged sub! But over the normal audio range, this blows away Bose in clarity and richness of sound - the Bose sounded very flat IMO.
- PAIRING: Also love the fact that 2 devices can be paired simultaneously - now you and your spouse can play one after the other using different phones / devices
- DESIGN: Love the form factor - easy to carry around and looks extremely cool.
- BATTERY: Amazing battery life - I've read reviews that say that it can easily stretch up to 12 hrs and some even claim 15hr battery life and this is totally believable. I have played for a whole day and it still had about 70% of the charge left! From what I know, Bose offers a battery life of 3 - 4 hrs
- SURROUND - If you press the + and - button simultaneously, it activates LiveAudio (3D sound) which I turn on when watching movies.
- SPEAKERPHONE - Yes, you can use this as a speakerphone! The audio is crisp and conference calls are a delight on this little device!
Better than other wireless speakers in the following aspect:
- Really like the Bluetooth wireless capability - wifi (802.11b) is useless when you go out into the wild / camping, so having a Bluetooth link is very useful.
Overall, I am very impressed with the speakers and I highly recommend you to try it!

not sure where you heard 3-4 hours, my soundlink plays for 15 hours at normal levels.

I agree with oluv. Soundlink II plays at least 8 hours and more like 12 or more hours at moderate valume levels.
