Most people are familiar with Jawbone. They make high end Bluetooth headsets with some of the best noise cancelation technology out there. I actually had a co-worker that rode a Harley to work every morning and would use a Jawbone on his commute, and you could never tell that we was on a Bluetooth, much less cruising down the freeway at 70 mph on a motorcycle.
Not too long ago, Jawbone expanded their product line, introducing a device called the Jambox. It is a wireless, portable Bluetooth speaker that pumps out sound at a whopping 85 decibels. That puts it somewhere between a motorcycle and a rock concert.
Today Jawbone is introducing a new product called the Jamchain. It is exactly what it sounds like. It is a cheap plastic chain that attaches to the Jambox so you can wear it around your neck like Run DMC.
Here is the promotional video they put together for it.
The Jamchain won’t be sold. It will be given away to anyone who buys a Jambox. All you have to do is enter a promo code on the Jawbone website to get one. And for those you already own a Jambox, you can get your free Jamchain as well through their account dashboard.
To say that this is beyond awesome would be the understatement of the century. For a company that is typically associated with high end business/professional clientele, to move this far outside of their comfort zone is both refreshing and hilarious.
