Re: Beeps too loud !

[ Edited ]

Hi Leng,

 

Before you head to the store, take a look at some steps to silence your JAMBOX. In case you missed my post from page 1, here it is again below:

 

Unfortunately we do not have a way to decrease the beeps when pressing the volume buttons, but we do have a solution for muting the voice prompt and putting the JAMBOX in silent mode.

 

1) To Turn the JAMBOX on without sound, press the Minus (-) button and then switch the unit on.

2) You can go to the advanced settings on MyTalk to disable voice prompts.

Turning "Voice Announcements" to the OFF position will disable voice prompts for battery status, pairing, and other voice announcements from your JAMBOX.

 

 Hope this helps!

Re: Beeps too loud !

Hello JawboneJamie - I'm a recent purchaser and thanks for the tips but I hope Jawbone can see that the punter beep feedback is not changing!

 

Kill the volume beeps please!  I know I've changed the volume - I pushed the button!

 

The turn on, turn off trinkets I can just about take and am sure that they're a useful product identifier that your marketing guru's would want to keep.  Unfortunately all the stuff inbetween really does detract from the experience!!

 

So, lovely bit of kit that sounds good and looks good and I won't be taking back for a refund but seriously what do the beeps add (apart from pain)?!

Hi busteddunc,

 

I really appreciate your feedback on the Jawbone Forums and I'll definitely forward everyone's opinions about the loud beeps to our team. But, I'm glad, aside from the beep sounds, you are enjoying the sound and style of your JAMBOX!

Re: Beeps too loud !

Single best improvement that could be madew to this device would be to lower the volume of all of the prompts. 

 

Even if the beep volume can't be changed (and that would be very disppointing), then at minimum, an AudioApp profile should be added to the MyTalk page with quieter prompts in a plain, professional voice.  No need to change the JamBox software; just have the volume of all the sound clips in the profile much (much!) lower.

 

Call it "The Quiet One" and see how many of us, your loyal customers, are quick to download it, for both our JamBox and JawBone earpiece devices.

The loud beeps and other sounds ruin an otherwise great product.

Re: Beeps too loud !

An ETA on this would make me happy... I travel all the time and these loud and very annoying beeps in a quiet hotel room are really a PITA ! :smileyhappy: Can't you just replace them by clicks for example, like on the iPhone ? It would make this device almost perfect...

Re: Beeps too loud !

My Jambox will continue to reside in a drawer, unused until the volume-beep level issue is resolved. Too bad as the speaker in all other ways is a decent product.

Re: Beeps too loud !

I just want to show my support for this post too.

 

I just bought my Jambox and I loved it.

But the loud voice prompts and beeps are the only flaw!

All I want is to lower the volume of these default sounds.

Just giving us the option to adjust these volume in the mytalk app is good enough.
I don't think it'll be that hard, right?

Re: Beeps too loud !

I posted this comment to a number of the reviews of the new Big Jambox: Just one question: has the loud beeping with every button push & at startup/shutdown been changed? It makes the Jambox obnoxiously loud and inappropriate in an office. Check out the complaints at the Jawbone forum and the excuse that it can't be changed. http://forums.jawbone.com/t5/JAMBOX-Troubleshooting/Beeps-too-loud/td-p/30239/page/3 http://www.theverge.com/2012/5/1/2986217/Jawbone-big-jambox-speaker-review http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/01/jawbone-big-jambox-review http://gizmodo.com/5906423/jawbone-big-jambox-review-a-loudspeaker-grows-up http://www.wired.com/reviews/2012/05/big-jambox/ http://www.slashgear.com/big-jambox-review-30225355/
