The days of jukeboxes have long been extinct. When walking down the street currently, the sounds of crappy cellphone speakers bellow distortedly with crackling, an unclear tone that suffocates in the backdrop of the city’s busy noise polluted air. Jawbone’s Mini Jambox is the solution. You can turn a walk in the park into a musical disco, boogie down hard on the beach and drown out the city with theses small but powerful speakers. Take great, clear sound wherever you go because as Jawbone says ‘great sound makes everything better.’

The Mini Jambox is lightweight, only 255g, and lives up to its mini status being 154mm in length, 24.5mm wide and 58mm high. It can fit in your pocket or your girlfriend’s purse. It is built from a single piece of aluminum, which can deliver incredible sound and volume especially for its size. It comes in 9 different colours and 5 different design options.

The Jambox will boom out bold sound for up to 10 hours thanks to its Lithium-ion battery. It allows you to share music through Multi Play. Bluetooth technology makes it very easy you to link up your devices like your iPhone, iPad, iPod, Android, Tablets, Mac and PC computers to the Jambox speakers. You can also connect yours with a friend’s Jambox to double the power and double the sound. LiveAudio lets you experience the sound of your favourite movies, music and games in three-dimensional quality that you can immerse yourself into like never before.

It is just not small but super smart too. The Jawbone app incorporates one-touch access to all saved, streamed and shared music. Personalize your Mini Jambox with new features as they start rolling out. Use the Jambox to speak to your friends with a built in omnidirectional microphone where the whole room can join in on the conversation. Available at for around two thousand Rand.
