Bluetooth speakers are becoming increasingly popular with the mobile generation and there’s a whole range of devices ranging from £50 to over £500. The Jabra Solemate Max (£275) sits in the middle, so you can expect a certain level of audio performance...

Even if the sound quality was up to scratch, £299 is a steep price to pay for a portable Bluetooth speaker. The fact that is isn’t means you’re highly likely to be disappointed by the Solemate Max.

In the dense forest of Bluetooth speakers, Jabra's Solemate is one that stands out. Both in terms of looks and sound quality, the diminutive speaker punched above its weight. Plus, it's great value at around £80. See also: 13 best portable speakers The...

The problem for Jabra is that it set the bar so high with the original Solemate. Here was a small Bluetooth speaker with great battery life and sound. While not brilliant in the abstract, it delighted you every time you heard it because it seemed...

The Jabra Soulmate Max is a likeable wireless speaker with some strong selling points, but it simply doesn't justify its current $400 price...

A warm and welcome new addition to my home, the Solemate Max is the latest in portable speakers from Jabra. If you'll remember, we had high praise for its predecessor, the Solemate , in our review from 2012. How does big brother measure up?...

The Jabra Solemate Max is a portable wireless and wired Bluetooth-capable NFC enhanced boombox and speakerphone. It'll also act as a USB audio device for Windows (possibly Mac), charge your phone for you, and is heavy enough to keep a weiner dog down in...

When we first saw the Solemate Max we all thought it was a beast and it is in terms of size since it's the 2nd largest portable speaker we've ever tested right after the massive TDK Boombox A73. However if I've learned something through all the years...

The Jabra Solemate Max is no ordinary portable Bluetooth speaker . At 6.2 pounds, it weighs 130% more than the Jawbone Big Jambox , a popular competitor. At $399, it costs 60% more. Its rugged design is dust- and splash-resistant. And it has a USB...

The current state of the Bluetooth speaker market is crazy competitive and filled with so many options, so much so that it is really difficult to stand out from all the rest. Fortunately, the Jabra Solemate Max is a very solid addition to the Solemate...

The Jabra Solemate Max is like 10-pound bag crammed with 16 pounds of awesome. The sound quality and volume that comes out of this speaker is absolutely incredible, especially for the size. This speaker is big enough to capture the attention of people...

Would you spend $400 on a portable Bluetooth speaker? That's the question Jabra's hoping to answer with its new flagship product, the Solemate Max. If you can believe it, Jabra does make a somewhat compelling case at times. The Max falls into the...

I was an immediate fan of the Jabra Solemate Bluetooth speaker and said so. I was impressed by the Jabra Solemate mini I reviewed last month, and I said so. And I am also a fan of the big brother of the aforementioned speakers. The Jabra Solemate Max is...

International Review By Mobilsiden on 75

Højttaleren der mest af alt ligner en sko, har en god lyd til prisen og kan sagtens tages med ud i haven her til sommer. Solemate Max er storebroren til de to mindre udgaver, Solemate mini og Solemate. Denne her er dog ikke lige til at have med i...

International Review By tblt.de on 90

Die Jabra Solemate Max liefert lauten und klaren Klang, hat eine lange Akkulaufzeit und besitzt clevere, jabra-typische Features wie das Aufladen des Smartphones. Ob für Zuhause, auf der Terrasse oder am Strand, ich kann die Jabra Solemate Max sehr...
