Jawbone has just announced the latest in its Bluetooth speaker lineup. The Mini Jambox – as I’m sure you can tell from the name – is a smaller version of its popular portable accessory. At just 24.5mm thin and 58mm tall, it’s incredible portable and weighs only 255grams. The external body is made out of one piece of aluminum with a variety of different grille patterns machined on the front. Color wise, you have a choice of nine hues with all the popular ones catered for.
At $179, it’s not the cheapest of audio accessories, but the Jawbone brand has a good reputation for producing great sound regardless of size. If past accessories are anything to go by, it will pack a punch.
It’ll connect to your iPhone using Bluetooth 4.0, ensuring you aren’t using more power than you need to, it has a proprietary passive bass radiator to increase bass levels, and a pair of stereo acoustic drivers. 10 hours of playback will ensure you get through an entire catalogue of Foo Fighters’ songs and then some. As usual, the Lithium-ion battery inside is charged by Micro-USB.
It’s available to pre-order now direct from Jawbone.
