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.
From the Manufacturer
JAMBOX by Jawbone is the smallest, best-sounding wireless speaker and speakerphone around. Just place it anywhere in a room and enjoy pristine streaming audio from your phone, computer, or other Bluetooth devices. Bring music, movies, and all your mobile audio vibrantly to life-all in the palm of your hand.
Big Sound in a Small Package
JAMBOX delivers stunning hi-fi audio in a portable wireless speaker so compact you won't believe it when you hear it. It's loud. With an output capacity of 85 decibels, JAMBOX fills even the largest rooms. Unlike other portable speakers, JAMBOX is powered by a pair of proprietary, highly sophisticated acoustic drivers, unmatched in their ability to produce extreme high (tweeter) and low (woofer) frequencies from a single, ultra-small dome speaker. They work in concert with an innovative moving-wall passive bass radiator and airtight enclosure to deliver shimmering highs and thumping lows that you can literally feel-the richest sound all in the palm of your hand.
It Only gets Better
JAMBOX is the only speaker that gets smarter every time you plug it in. Just sync it with Jawbone's industry-first MyTALK online platform to download apps, software upgrades, and more. JAMBOX will always be up to date.
Go Anywhere and go Wireless
You get the freedom to bring pristine wireless audio to whatever you're doing, wherever you want. Carry it from room to room or just throw it in your bag. No more cords, docks, or hassles.
Conference on the Go
With a powerful, built-in microphone, JAMBOX frees you to share crisp, clean-sounding conference calls anywhere-in the office, car, at home, alone, or with a group. It's also perfect for sharing video chats via iChat, Skype, and more.
It's all in the Details
JAMBOX looks and feels as striking as it sounds. But with its stainless steel construction and industrial-weight molded rubber casing, it's not just a pretty package-it's a sturdy, portable, and meticulously crafted machine that's built to blast.
Amp up your Music, Movies, Games
Don't let tiny computer speakers sap your sound. All your media deserves great audio, no matter what device it's played from. With JAMBOX, you'll feel the thump of every kick drum, the vroom of every car chase, and the roar of the crowd with every buzzer-beater- bringing all your mobile media vibrantly to life. And with up to 10 hours of continuous play, you can blast away all day long with plenty of charge to spare for whatever comes next.

Jawbone would not cross ship replacement. They would not even provide a shipping label to return defective item, expecting me to pay shipping to return the bad Jambox.
They FINALLY - 3 weeks later -- sent 'another' JamBox, but not new, nor even in a box, just an envelop -- no cables, no charging device, no instructions. I had returned everything, and now had a REPACK product with nothing to make it work. Another week later and the cables arrive, but no instructions.
Had pairing difficulties, messages 'cound not pair' -- kept returning weird names, JAM PARTY, HEADSET, finally Jambox. Eventually paired and connected.
AVOID THIS COMPANY AND PRODUCT AT ALL COSTS.
CRAPPY PRODUCT AND THE COMPANY HAS NO CONCERN FOR CUSTOMER SATISFACTION.
AVOID THIS COMPANY AND PRODUCT AT ALL COSTS.
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.
So why am I giving this only 3 stars instead of 5?
(1) The biggest thing is that the drivers in the speaker are so powerful it makes the whole speaker vibrate. The description says "put this anywhere in your room." Well, don't. It vibrates so much it moves itself. I had it at least 6 inches away from the edge of a table and after 15 minutes I heard it fall off. DO NOT PUT THIS ON A SHELF. It WILL fall off. The first time this happened it fell off onto concrete from about 6 feet up with the power cord in. The power cord USB connection broke. Luckily I was able to return it to Amazon because I was still within the return period. I thought I learned my lesson so I now try to keep it far away from any shelf/table edges, but this thing will walk a foot in a half hour and jump right off your table. So far its only fallen onto carpet a short distance and hasn't broke. Nothing sounds good on the floor.
(2) The Bluetooth connection sometimes has trouble connecting to my iphone 4. Sometime I need to turn it off/on a couple times to get it to connect. No big deal but can be frustrating.
For the price I paid ($175), if I didn't want something compact and easy to travel with and didn't care about a Bluetooth connection, I'd pick up something a little bigger (better sound) and something that didn't shake it's way off a table. If you're looking for something compact, this is the best sounding speaker at this size.
I've contact Jambox's customer support via phone and their online form on multiple occasions and they are extremely quick at responding -- usually the same day. Their responses on clear and resolves my problem usually in the initial contact. So anybody commenting on the lack of support might have had a rare bad experience or provided incorrect information to the support team to help. I've had my Jambox replaced (due to the a broken USB port) and it came in the matter of days. They even allowed me to switch to another color if I wanted to. Super accommodating. As a minor point, I live in the US and their support was in the US, which was rather rare for a lot of companies nowadays.
For this speaker itself, it's an okay speaker. It's loud enough, but yes, there are better and smaller speakers out there, including Logitech's UE speakers, Bose Soundlink, and even the newer Mini Jambox. If you still want to go with this original Jambox, one thing to note is that there's not a lot of grip at the bottom of the speaker, so if you bump your music loud, the speaker slowly moves around on smooth surfaces like glass. I've had the speaker fall off the table a few times when I forget to check on it after a while. With all that being said, it's been 3 years since I purchased this and I still use so it's a great little speaker that I still find use for. You won't regret they minor quibbles.
