MINI JAMBOX – the perfect Holiday gift

Every so often, a device comes along that’s so well-designed and engineered that it transforms an entire product category. The iPod did it for portable music players and the iPad did it for the emerging tablet industry. However, introducing a device that sets a new benchmark for a more mature product category is a lot harder. There are usually too many established players and too much money invested for an upstart outsider to make much of a difference.

That was the situation that Jawbone faced in 2010 when it went up against industry giants like Bose and Logitech with its revolutionary JAMBOX Bluetooth portable speaker. With its trademark geometric pattern and distinctive colors, the JAMBOX connected with any Bluetooth-enabled device to blast out a full and balanced sound. In 2011 it became the top-selling digital speaker in the U.S.

Last year, Jawbone did it again with the BIG JAMBOX, a significantly bigger and redesigned version of the original. The BIG JAMBOX, which can fill a small auditorium with its 360-degree sound, is able to pair with multiple devices at the same time, boasts up to 15 hours of battery life, and features LiveAudio playback technology for music, movies and games.

But despite claims to the contrary, the BIG JAMBOX is not really a portable speaker. Its size and 2.7 pounds of weight make sure of that. So Jawbone has taken the logical next step and retained the power and features of the BIG JAMBOX while downsizing to something more manageable. The result: the all-new MINI JAMBOX.

With a variety of dimpled looks and a choice of 9 different colors, the MINI JAMBOX is every bit as stylish as its predecessors but much smaller and lighter. (At just 9 ounces, the MINI JAMBOX is less than one-quarter of the weight of the BIG JAMBOX.) The result is a truly portable speaker that can go anywhere and still fill a large room with a rich, full sound.

Despite its size, the MINI JAMBOX still manages to retain many of the features of the BIG JAMBOX. It wirelessly streams audio from any Bluetooth-enabled device within approximately 33 feet and there is also a stereo input for direct connections. There’s a built-in omnidirectional microphone for speakerphone calls, and there are all the usual controls for play, pause, skip a track, or return to previous track. LiveAudio is available as a free download.

At $179.99, the MINI JAMBOX is $120 cheaper than its big brother. If you’re looking for an affordable gift that is sure to delight both techies and non-techies alike, then the MINI JAMBOX should be at the top of your list!

But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
