anyone using it? I wonder how loud can this big guy can be.
I don't have one, but I have been thinking about getting one. Here's The Verge's review of it.
I have one
I have a Big JamBox. It gets much louder and much deeper than the original JamBox.
- Bluetooth connectivity is wicked (I HATE wires!)
- Not terrible sounding
- more battery life than my ears desire
- I can pleasantly listen to it for a long time compared to some of my other speakers.
- you can pass it around like a football
- has problems picking up Bluetooth connections sometimes. Pisses my wife off quite a bit actually. Hoping a driver update fixes it
- No Tweeter. Very noticeable if you are used to hearing the full audible range.
- Glows when plugged in means it can't be plugged in overnight next to my bed
Couldn't just throw a cloth or even some shirt over it?
Sure, but it has to be turned off/on at least once per day due to Bluetooth connection failures (The glowing part is the power button ).
I just moved it to a different room.
Overall, it's a fine Bluetooth speaker if what you're looking for is a long lasting portable sound device.
my only concern is, is it loud enough to fill a room without "cracking" noise?
I hate those cracking noise plus the price isn't cheap
Hmm, can't say I ever crank it up that high (use other speakers for that). I have heard crackling when the bluetooth connection is weak (EG: Far from the source).
How big is your room and what counts as 'fill' (EG: Do you like to blast Metal)? It has multiple mid woofers and a rather large bass radiator for the speaker size but it's no loudspeaker.
I'll turn it up when I'm in the house tomorrow and see what happens.
I mostly listen to rap music. Eg Soulja, Wayne, Vinny cha$e, drake etc.
Thanks for helping
I listened to some tracks at maximum volume.
At absolute max there is occasional crackling. Backing off a little eliminated it for me. However, the speaker sounds even worse when you crank it up (Worse than even other $300 speakers I've heard).
I think you'd really benefit from being able to A/B it with some other options.
have had the big jambox for almost a month now. quite happy with it but for one thing. the battery drains very fast if i stream music via bluetooth from my 2007 imac. it won't last a day and this is not even on continuous play. with the iphone though its fine and can go upto 2 days without a charge.
the lion's share of my music is on an ext. hard drive which is connected to my iMac. due to the my iphone's 32G capacity i only have a fraction of my music on there. this really sucks.
