The first one was over priced and under-performed and 2.0 will be the same. For these prices anyon can get a far better speaker or for half the amount you can get something equal to these. Jawbone should never have entered the consumer portable speaker market especially if these are what they are going to come up with.
I've heard them in person and they sound pretty good considering their portability and all but I'd have to say I agree with you that they're definitely not worth the price.But...they've also become a "trending" product and so have other portable/bluetooth/wireless speakers so stuff like this will probably be around and on the market for a while
Ive heard before also and they have good sound but still not worth the price tag. I just dont see unless you have money to burn why someone would buy them at that pricepoint.
