Mini speakers may seem like a fad to some, but there are a lot of people that actually use them. Getting the loudest and clearest sound out of these enclosures without making them too big or too heavy is a design challenge that the engineers face, and it looks like Jawbone is still ahead of the pack on this one – after releasing the Jambox and the Big Jambox they finally got around to the Mini Jambox – an ultra-sleek stereo speaker box that can easily fit in any bag and in a lot of pockets, making it the ideal solution for conference calls or music on the go.
The enclosure is made of aluminum and is very sturdy, measuring only 15.4 x 7.3 x 2.4 cm and featuring Bluetooth, a micro USB port for charging, an audio jack and volume control buttons. The pairing process is easy and the batter can last up to 10 hours of continuous playback, so it’s good for any occasion. The audio quality is great for its size, and even though it’s not very loud, it’s very clear.
