JAMBOX is an intelligent wireless speaker and speakerphone that promises to output high audio quality. It can easily be connected to mobile phones, computers, tablets, iPods or any other Bluetooth devices. You can also stream and share music, movies, games, phone and conference calls practically anywhere you are. It’s intelligent in a sense that it can also be updated with apps and future updates.
From the features and product specs, it’s clear that this mini box is very handy in all situations that require both volume and audio quality. Either you are playing games from your mobile device or having a party at someone’s house, JAMBOX needs to be in your bag at all times! Of course, none of this matters if the audio quality is not up to standard. I’d definitely be interested in comparing JAMBOX quality with the Creative ZiiSound D5 that I reviewed before, although it’s not really as wireless and compact as the JAMBOX in a sense.

Jawbone® Launches JAMBOX™ in Australia – The World’s First Intelligent Wireless Speaker and Speakerphone
A breakthrough in sound, wireless computing and design
Sydney, Australia – January 27, 2011 – Jawbone, the leader in personal mobile technology, today announced their latest breakthrough: JAMBOX, the first intelligent wireless speaker and speakerphone now available to Australian consumers.
In addition to delivering full spectrum audio, JAMBOX quickly and easily connects with mobile phones, computers, tablets, iPods® or any other Bluetooth® device, allowing consumers to seamlessly stream and share music, movies, games, phone and conference calls anywhere – all wirelessly, all in the palm of your hand.
“Jawbone has been committed to providing the most advanced technology in compact and elegantly designed lifestyle products,” says Hosain Rahman, CEO and founder of Jawbone. “JAMBOX is an extension of this commitment – we’ve combined cutting-edge innovations in acoustics and microcomputing into a meticulously crafted package. JAMBOX is not just a new kind of stereo speaker; it’s a whole new category of high quality mobile audio.”
Breakthrough Science Delivers Full Spectrum Sound
JAMBOX utilises more than 40 years of acoustics research to produce sound quality and volume unparalleled for a speaker of its size. Its two highly powerful acoustic drivers and ultra-small dome produce an audio spectrum almost as wide as the human ear itself. These drivers and speakers work in concert with an innovative moving-wall passive bass radiator and airtight enclosure – the only one of its kind in a compact speaker – to deliver such shimmering highs and massive low frequencies that they can literally be felt from feet away.
Constantly Evolving Technology
JAMBOX is the only speaker in the world that gets smarter with time. It can be updated with apps, software and new features at Jawbone’s industry-first online platform, MyTALK. Audio alerts offer totally hands-free convenience, letting you know battery life, caller ID, call functions and more. JAMBOX can also be personalised with voice and language options. This one-of-a-kind intelligence means JAMBOX will always be up-to-date with the latest and greatest technologies.
Modern Design Looks As Good As It Sounds
With its stainless steel construction and industrial-weight molded rubber casing, JAMBOX is a sturdy, highly portable and versatile speaker system in a package that looks like minimalist art. JAMBOX exemplifies Jawbone’s obsession with ensuring that form is always integrated with function. It is built totally differently from your typical speaker with all four sides wrapped in a single grill to cut down on moving parts, achieving a strong, minimal form unlike any other speaker, while also making it highly durable.
JAMBOX’s innovative single-grill construction also fully exposes the speakers, resulting in a richer, louder, and broader spectrum of sound. Uncompromising attention to detail extends to the four distinct design options to visually reflect sound in the forms of dots, diamonds and waves bringing an artisan quality to JAMBOX’s pure box aesthetic.
Fully Experience Mobile Media Wherever You Go
With JAMBOX, all mobile media comes brilliantly to life – you will literally feel the thump of every kick drum, cinematic car crash and video game battle. The built-in professional-quality microphone lets you share conference calls anywhere – in the office, at home, or on the road – alone or with a group. Without docks or cords, JAMBOX can be carried from room to room or thrown in a bag, delivering the freedom of pristine wireless audio anytime, anywhere.
Availability and Pricing
JAMBOX comes in four stunning designs: Blue Wave, Black Diamond, Grey Hex and Red Dot. The full JAMBOX line is available for a RRP of AUD$249. JAMBOX is available through Apple Stores with additional retailers to be announced in the future or call Force on 1300 736 723 for stocklists.
