Microsoft offers $130 Jawbone speaker for $69
Those of you looking for a good portable speaker can grab one made by Jawbone at a hefty holiday discount, courtesy of Microsoft.
For Day 5 of the software giant’s 12 Days of Deals, the Jawbone Mini Jambox speaker is selling for a jaw-dropping $69, down from the regular price of $130. Like all the daily deals, the Jawbone speaker is available at Microsoft’s online store, starting at 5 a.m. PT, and at Microsoft retail outlets when they open. The first 50 customers who buy one at a Microsoft retail store can snag it for $50 — a total savings of $80.
What’s so special about the Mini Jambox?
Well, it’s small — about half the size of its predecessor. It offers a pair of front-facing stereo drivers to better direct the sound and a bass radiator that delivers a high-quality sound, especially considering its compact size. It supports Bluetooth 4.0 and can stream audio from any Bluetooth-connected device from a distance of about 33 feet. It also includes a stereo port for direct connections. The speaker’s rechargeable lithium-ion battery will give you around 10 hours of playback in a single charge.
The Jambox also comes in seven different colors.
