We reviewed the BIG JAMBOX a while ago and one of the features we liked was the fact that you can update the firmware; not many portable speakers out there have the ability to update them to improve their quality. Â Not only does it suggests better experience for the BIG JAMBOX owners but also suggests that the makers, JAWBONE are always working on improving their products, it didn’t stop at the point of sale.
The new firmware,Â BIG JAMBOX 2.0, adds Â an extra two hours of battery life when used with iOS 6.1 devices, along with better audio performance, little things that makes all the difference when using bluetooth audio device as such. The free update is avialbale through Jawboneâ€™sÂ MyTALKÂ system.
Besides the audio and battery life improvement, it also adds a number of new features such as supportÂ for portable gaming device, PS Vita; thereâ€™s alsoÂ synchronisedÂ volume control, so providing you have a gadget or audio source that has AVRCP 1.4, you wil be able to control your volume in aÂ synchronisedÂ manner from the BIG JAMBOX.
There is also a new Silent Mode, it cuts out any of the tones and voice prompts which would usually guide you through using the BIG JAMBOX, though it still lets through calls. Holding down the Talk and Minus buttons simultaneously switches it on; holding down Talk and Plus while powering on turns it off.
