Jawbone Jambox Big
The original Jawbone Jambox sold like nothing else and for good reason. With quality sound that could fill a room in a pocket sized package it was understandably popular. However it was slightly small for larger rooms or outdoor use; enter the Jawbone Jambox Big.
The Jambox Big is four times the size of the original Jambox and while this may sound large the entire unit is still manageable.
Which Jambox is for me?
If portability is your primary concern either unit is acceptable, unless you need it to fit in your pocket, the original would be for you and your pockets have to be rather large. The main feature to concentrate on is the size of the area you are planning to use the Jambox in. Individual use in a small room or your car? At the beach or a park? If it is for personal and small scale use the original Jambox is more than likely sufficient. If you want your audio to fill a larger space, or really fill a small space, or if you want to use it outside, or at a party in a large area then the Jawbone Big is for you. If you want your sound loud regardless then the Jawbone Big is still for you. Not to take away from the original at all because it is a brilliant speaker, but the Jambox Big is larger, louder and generally a better performer

Jawbone Big as a speakerphone
The speakerphone feature was available in the original Jambox and it was somewhat lacking. This was understandable due to the size of the device and the conference call feature was more of a tacked on feature than the headliner. We have it on good authority that the speakerphone option has been reworked and is now excellent! This is due to both the physically larger size as well as louder volume options.
Jawbone Big is wireless
Like its predecessor the Jambox Big is fully wireless. Stream all your media (phone, tablet or MP3 player) via Bluetooth and control playback directly from your device. Alternatively use the built in Jamboxes built in buttons; play, pause and skip tracks. With a battery life of up to 15 hours, you can party all night long.
Constructed from stainless steel the Jawbone big is an excellent accompaniment for any digital media device, with a small footprint you can share your audio anywhere – the beach, office, on holidays or at home.
