Jaw­bone, $359 jaw­ ★★★★ You wouldn’t be­lieve such a small speaker, with­out so much as a wire at­tached, could pump out mu­sic quite as loudly or as clearly as this Jaw­bone cre­ation. The Big Jam­box is a big­ger brother to the orig­i­nal Jaw­bone cre­ation, though it is still just 25.6cm long and weighs 1.2kg, mak­ing it a por­ta­ble party mon­ster. Like the smaller ver­sion, this speaker fea­tures pat­terns in its ex­te­rior mesh and comes in bright or muted colours. This speaker adds large ex­ter­nal con­trols and uses pow­er­ful au­dio equip­ment, in­clud­ing neodymium driv­ers and op­pos­ing pas­sive bass ra­di­a­tors for sound that booms on big notes. It con­nects to any phone, tablet or com­puter with Blue­tooth, so it can also be used to take calls, and its built-in recharge­able bat­tery will work for up to 15 hours from a 21/ hour charge. It’s one for au­dio lovers on the move.
