From our iPhone, it sounds great, from iTunes, not so much, very muddied. Currently using "Use as Audio Device" on my macbook, is there another way?
Solved! Go to Solution.
That should do the trick. If you're on 10.7 and it doesn't give a stereo or headphones option, go into your Sound settings and choose BIG JAMBOX - Bluetooth Headphones under audio output and see if it sounds better then.
I've got the same issue....but I tried the suggestions here and nothing worked. It sounds horrible from my itunes on my macbook....but from my iphone it sounds amazing.
Please help me!!!
Just bought a BIG JAMBOX and after working with it a LONG time, found this same solution. Wish I had known to look here first. But some more questions.
1. Whenever my iMac is using its internal speakers and I want to use the Jambox, I have to go to System Preferences / Sound and select the BIG JAMBOX as the sound output. When I do that, I get really crummy sound until I follow the steps you you describe below. Then everything perfect. But I have to do this every time I use the Jambox with my iMac. Now that a year has gone by since your post below, is there a permanent solution?
2. I saw on another site a discussion of editing a particular plist file on the iMac. I do not have that file on my iMac, and the Bluetooth-related plist files I find do not have the same settings to edit. I also think my problem is not as serious as theirs and maybe the bitpool setting is not my problem. Have you looked at it, and is there some fix like this I could do so that I do not have to fix the sound quality everytine I use the Jambox? The url to the other site (am unable here to post the link) is below.
