TROUBLESHOOTING INFORMATIONi) If the device makes a loud scratching noise:
Hard Reset JAMBOX – Make sure the JAMBOX is powered on and disconnected from any device – the LED flashes white in this state. Press the TALK button 6 times at a quick, consistent pace, and look for the LED to turn red. PRESS and HOLD the TALK button once the LED turns red. Continue to hold the TALK button until the JAMBOX sounds a short tone, and the LED starts flashing red and white, indicating it has entered pairing mode.
ii) If the sound is barely audible:
Place the paired device closer to your JAMBOX – JAMBOX has a Bluetooth range of approximately 33 feet. Separating the devices further than this can affect the audio quality. Make sure the JAMBOX is charged up.

True to my word, when this went on a Gold box deal for $149, I purchased a second speaker for the kids who used them on camping trips to watch movies on their iPads with their friends. I've been using this daily over the past year with only a few minor issues. I am not a big fan of the latest downloaded software update to add "Live Audio" sound processing which really dampens the sound volume too much to be effective and have only noticed a subtle difference for certain music files. I suspect there will be more reviewers who will knock this device due to dissatisifaction with the Live Audio update, but don't realize that this can be simply toggled on/off by depressing and holding the minus and plus buttons together a few seconds. After purchasing a second one for the kids to use with their iPads, I had to change the bluetooth device names to distinguish multiple speakers since it is default set as "JAMBOX by Jawbone." If you have already synced your i"Device" you will notice that it will keep the old name. Simply go to Settings/General/Bluetooth and select the Not Connected icon and select "Forget this device." This will reset the name for the device and you can simply rescan and resync with the speaker to update the name in your bluetooth device list. I don't understand why there are so many poor reviews for syncing problems which I have never experienced using iOS devices. Other reviewers have also recommended the Soundfreaq SFQ-1 which has equal (to my ears, slightly superior to others) bluetooth sound quality and comparable pricing. I like the SoundFreaq, but I still prefer the JAMBOX due to its smaller size and simple rectangular shape which easily fits in my coat pocket for portability. The sound quality coupled with design factor make this a much more flexible purchase. Ignore reviews that make unfair comparisons to larger expensive office/room audiophile speakers which serve different purposes. I use both the Bose SoundDock and Dr. Dre Beatbox and also really enjoyed the inexpensive, but discontinued Griffin Amplfi speaker which all give a wider and fuller sound experience but are all impractical to drag around with you.
*** update 10/10/2011 ***
The new Jambox 2.1 software upgrade has fixed all the problems with the previous LiveAudio upgrade. The new SoundClarity algorithm is really nice and preserves the higher volume levels. I turn the LiveAudio off when we're in the operating room and it gives nice spatial sound and turn it back on when I'm alone in the office for a softer, but improved sound. I've noticed continued bad ratings complaining of frequent bluetooth connection drops. I have 2 Jambox speakers (blue and black) and have used them daily for 10 months with our iPhones, iPads, and recently an Asus Transformer android tablet and honestly have never had a single connection drop. I use the devices to listen to music in the operating room for 8-10 straight hours and we have have never had a dropped connection. I wonder if folks were unlucky to get a bad speaker or perhaps their problems are actually with their media devices that have outdated bluetooth protocols (i.e. non iOS devices).
- Excellent design
- AMAZING sound quality
- Very portable
- Excellent battery life
- Easy to use and pair with a device
- Black Jambox picks up lots of dust
- Jambox voice is way too loud
I bought this speaker as a replacement for my old tinny sounding speakers that were built in to my computer monitor. The first time I listened to it I was AMAZED! The power of this speaker is absolutely stunning! At max volume, I could hear it all throughout my house. There was absolutely no distortion whatsoever, and the LiveAudio technology worked perfectly. Just in case you don't know what LiveAudio is, it is basically 3-D sound. It sounds like the music is coming from all around you and it works GREAT with songs, movies, and games. I was also very pleased with the battery life of this speaker. I can use it for several hours and not worry about having to charge it. The bass on this speaker is absolutely thrilling and the highs are crisp and clear. This speaker was very easy to pair to every device I tried it with, including my iPhone, PC, and Samsung Galaxy. This speaker is also extremely portable and you can use it in practically any environment.
The only minor problems that I have with the speaker are that the black version will show all the dust that accumulates on the rubber and metal mesh. To clean it, all I did was take off the rubber sides on the top and bottom and wash them. To dry the rubber surfaces, I used a soft cloth instead of a paper towel because the paper towel would just leave a bunch of dust on the rubber again. As for the metal around the speaker, you can use a vacuum or even compressed air to blow the dust out. Another problem is that the voice on the Jambox is always at max volume and Jawbone has never done anything to let users lower the volume of it. You can however, turn on Silent Mode, which silences all tones, prompts and voices of any kind. To turn Silent mode ON, hold down the Talk (Circular) and Minus buttons at the same time while turning the Jambox on. To turn silent mode OFF, you hold down the Talk (Circular) and Plus buttons at the same time while turning the Jambox on.
In conclusion, this speaker is GREAT if you want a very stylish and loud/clear speaker and you do not mind the relatively high price. There are definitely many speakers that are louder or richer sounding at this price point, but many people often fail to consider that they are comparing this super portable speaker to much larger speakers designed to pump out more bass or crank up the volume.
Pairing: Very simple and easy. Works well with Android, iOS, Windows 7, and Mac OS products. The best part is you can switch in between devices and this speaker will remember each pairing. I read some of the other popular budget speakers have trouble connecting to the laptops, and that made me decide to get this over them.
Sound: Pretty good sound. The volume is good, especially when paired to the laptop. Like many have said, make sure you turn off the live audio feature to get the speaker louder. The bass is not overwhelming, but I'm more into clarity than bass so this worked out fine for me.
Battery life: phenomenal. Definitely can get over 8 hours of listening. I haven't tested the speaker function on this to make phone calls, but i don't imagine that will impact the battery life that much.
The competition. Having heard other speakers in stores, I think the best portable BT speaker that you can buy is the Bose Soundlink Mini, which retails for around 200 bucks. That speaker packs a lot more punch and heavy bass. This Jambox, when bought on sale, costs much less and is, IMO, better than the budget speakers out there.
One last thing, the speaker comes with a carrying case, but the case is a foldable one that is actually pretty snug on the speaker, so it takes some effort to get the speaker in and out.
