Jawbone Jambox brings wireless speakers to Bluetooth devices

Aliph has just announced their new Jawbone Jambox wireless speaker/speakerphone.  Those familiar with Aliph’s Jawbone headsets will likely recognize the design motifs in these speakers, which come in four different colors, and house a pair of drivers, a small-dome speaker, a passive-bass radiator, and a built-in microphone.  The Jambox can be plugged into a computer and customized or updated using Aliph’s MyTALK platform.  Because it connects over Bluetooth, one should be able to use this to amplify audio output from tinny laptop speakers, from an iPad or other Bluetooth-enabled tablet, or to provide a better speakerphone experience with any Bluetooth-enabled phone.  The Jambox is priced at $199, and is available for preorder on Aliph’s website now, and will be available in stores on November 16th.

    Heard the sound demo on Slashgear. Amazing bass quality! Wonder how long a full charge will last though.

    Read on another site today that a charge will last 6-8 hours.

    I got one of these in exchange for Marriott points (61,000) and have been pleasantly surprised. So far, the only negative I have is that the case they give you has no room for any type of cable. Would a little pouch to hold the short USB/3.5 cable be too much?
    Great sound, and the phone functions work very well…especially the ignore call 🙂
