Jawbone's Big Jambox Arrives
Jawbone presents the Big Jambox.
Like its predecessor, the Jambox, this latest addition to Jawbone's portable wireless speak lineup connects to any Bluetooth-enabled device from smartphones to computers, streaming music, movies, games, and phone calls.
At about 1.23kg, Big Jambox sports an airtight enclosure which packs proprietary neodymium drivers and two opposing passive bass radiators.

Featuring a newly designed omnidirectional microphone for 360-degree sound input, it comes with simultaneous multi-point Bluetooth connectivity, so multiple Bluetooth devices can be connected. Listeners can also remotely control the music from their smartphone or tablet.
Like all Jawbone products, Big Jambox connects to Jawbone’s industry-first MyTALK software platform to download audio apps, software updates and customizable features for your speaker.
Big Jambox comes in three designs - Red Dot, White Wave, and Graphite Hex - and will be retailing from end of July 2012. Priced at S$458, it will be available at Challenger, Courts, Harvey Norman, Apple Premium Resellers, Apple Online Store, Newstead, Sprint-Cass, as well as Jawbone.com.

Jawbone’s Best–Selling Wireless Portable Speaker Now Extends Huge Sound to Big Spaces
Singapore – Jawbone, a leader and innovator in smart audio devices and wearable technology for the mobile lifestyle, today introduced BIG JAMBOX, a new addition to its portable wireless speaker line-up designed to deliver powerful, rich sound experiences in large indoor and outdoor spaces.
Similar to Jawbone’s #1 best-selling JAMBOX speaker, BIG JAMBOX wirelessly connects to any Bluetooth enabled device – smartphones, tablets and computers – to stream high-quality music, movies, games and phone calls in any environment.
Crafted to Deliver More Sound Per Pound
At just 2.7 pounds, BIG JAMBOX pumps out rich, loud sound that is disproportionate to its diminutive size. Under the hood, an airtight enclosure features proprietary neodymium drivers and two opposing passive bass radiators. Advanced digital signal processing and dynamic equalization technology ensures all audio – from music to movies to voice – sounds great both indoors and out, at any volume. A built-in, rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 15 hours of continuous playback and 500 hours of standby time on a single charge.
BIG JAMBOX is also a high-quality, Type-1 compliant speakerphone. It features a newly designed omnidirectional microphone for 360-degree sound input, with improved echo-cancellation and full duplex communication for crystal-clear calls from the office or home.
Form & Function Beautifully Optimized
BIG JAMBOX combines beautiful industrial design with a thoroughly considered user experience to deliver an unparalleled audio experience in a gorgeous and portable package.
BIG JAMBOX is designed to be social. With simultaneous multipoint Bluetooth connectivity, you can pair multiple Bluetooth devices to BIG JAMBOX, allowing friends to easily take turns as DJ. Listeners can control the music from their smartphone or tablet, or by using the buttons on BIG JAMBOX to change volume and pause, play or skip songs.
Smart Audio & Updateable Platform
BIG JAMBOX delivers incredible sound quality across a wide variety of content types and genres. Advanced digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms enhance and optimize output for the highest quality playback at every volume – clear and crisp when turned down and full and booming when turned up. It’s explicitly tuned for balanced equalization and richness of sound, ensuring that all your audio is played back the way the artist wanted it to be heard.
BIG JAMBOX features Jawbone’s exclusive LiveAudio technology built-in to the device, which allows listeners to immerse themselves in three-dimensional sound. Jawbone is collaborating with artists and producers on music, games and other audio formats that leverage LiveAudio to bring even richer sound experiences to life.
Like all Jawbone products, BIG JAMBOX connects to Jawbone’s industry-first MyTALK software platform to download audio apps, software updates and customizable features for your speaker.
Personalize the voice that announces battery life and caller ID, or customize the Talk button to activate a favorite feature. As new updates are released, BIG JAMBOX will become even smarter over time.
