At Jawbone we combine design, technology, hardware and software into products that revolve around you to make your daily experiences even better. Our wireless speakers are designed to do that by bringing all of your mobile entertainment experiences to life wherever you are. With MINI JAMBOX, the challenge was to make a wireless speaker that could be with you all the time. By implementing top-grade materials and automated manufacturing processes, we were able to make MINI JAMBOX the smallest speaker of its kind at just 9oz. Its two drivers feature the tightest magnet-to-coil ration possible and the highest-grade neodymium available, delivering more energy from drivers of that size for the fullest sound possible. The entire speaker is constructed with only five screws and one solder joint, greatly reducing manual processes in the assembly for improved consistency. MINI JAMBOX is crafted from a single piece of extruded aluminum that makes up both the framework and the face of the speaker, simultaneously producing its high-quality audio and its iconic industrial design. Inside the aluminum encasement, an airtight enclosure creates a maximally efficient cavity for producing sound. Outside, the precisely sculpted aluminum exterior exudes an innovative blend of high tech and high design. MINI JAMBOX comes with a free Jawbone application for iOS and Android that lets you customize the speaker and curate the playlists you love right from your mobile device. And, as other features and services are released for the updateable SmartSpeaker™, MINI JAMBOX will become even better over time.
