Verge score: 8.3

The Big Jambox by Jawbone is a Bluetooth stereo speaker that has a 33-foot wireless range and 15 hours of audio playback with its built-in rechargeable battery. It has integrated media control buttons, can be paired with two devices at the same time, and comes in different colors and relief patterns.

Description

The Bose SoundLink portable Bluetooth speaker system is about the size of a hardcover book, with an integrated cover that folds back to serve as a stand, four midrange drivers, and two intriguing “waffle” woofers placed opposite each other to provide full-range bass performance without vibrating the unit off the table.

SoundLink Air is Bose's first AirPlay-enabled wireless speaker. It also includes Bluetooth connectivity and an IR remote.
