Jambox by fuseproject for Jawbone

Jambox is a new wireless speaker and speakerphone, designed by fuseproject (headed by Yves Béhar) for mobile tech leader Jawbone. The speaker connected with mobile phones, computers, and other bluetooth-enabled devices to stream music and share just about anything wirelessly. And it’s tiny — fits in the palm of your hand. The device’s software can also be updated, so it can grown as new technology is released. It also tells you when your battery is low, who is calling, and other functions.

About the technology:

Jambox utilizes more than 40 years of acoustics research to produce sound quality and volume unparalleled for a speaker of its size. Its two highly powerful acoustic drivers and ultra-small dome produce an audio spectrum almost as wide as the human ear itself. These drivers and speakers work in concert with an innovative moving-wall passive bass radiator and airtight enclosure — the only one of its kind in a compact speaker — to deliver such shimmering highs and massive low frequencies that they can literally be felt from feet away.

Jambox comes in four designs: Blue Wave, Black Diamond, Grey Hex and Red Dot. You can pre-order them online for $199 and they will be available in Apple stores and Best Buy beginning next week.
