Take your Bluetooth speaker power to the extreme with Jawbone's BIG JAMBOX

Take your Bluetooth speaker power to the extreme with Jawbone's BIG JAMBOX

Did you ever look at a Jawbone JAMBOX and wish that it was bigger? If so, your wishes have been answered with the BIG JAMBOX, everything you loved about the original but at a much larger size. (10.1 x 3.2 x 3.7 inches and 2.7lbs to be exact!)

The original JAMBOX had great sound and the BIG JAMBOX aims to take that sound and fill even bigger spaces with it. Not just a room but a hall, not just a movie night but a party. With precision-tuned drivers and dual passive bass radiators, it promises great sound at any size. It also uses LiveAudio technology, which Jawbone claims "reveals rich layers of audio that you can sense all around you". 3D sound can be a bit of a gimmick, so hopefully it's good as well as fancy.

Even though the BIG JAWBONE is much larger, and is built from strong stainless steel, the BIG JAMBOX still aims to remain portable. It's Bluetooth -- though 2.1 and not 4.0 -- so you're not stuck with wires. It boasts 15 hours of battery time, so you shouldn't run out during the day (or night). You can also update it over the internet, so if apps, updates, or new content becomes available, you can grab it and make it yours. There's even a carrying case (sold separately) to protect your purchase on the go.

Certainly the original, smaller JAMBOX will still appeal to many users. It's so easy to take around and sounds so good, after all. But sometimes big music, big movies, and big games will simply require big speakers. For those occasions, and those kinds of users, now t

The BIG JAMBOX will be available in graphite hex, white wave, and red dot. It ships on May 15 and can be pre-ordered now for $299.
