Nothing motivates a model (or photographer) on the set more than good music. Many of my shoots are done on location, and the sound of music from my laptop speaker just doesn’t cut it. Enter the Jambox by Jawbone. It packs an incredible, room-filling sound with amazing bass in a small, portable form that fits in my camera bag alongside my other equipment (it’s only six inches wide!). It connects to a laptop, MP3 player, or smartphone wirelessly via Bluetooth or with a 3.5mm stereo input cable. The internal, rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts about 10 hours and charges via USB .
I find the Bluetooth connection unreliable, but using the cable is no problem for me. The best part is that I can ask my models or clients what type of music they like and then program a station for them on Pandora. This way they get the music they like and not just what I have in iTunes on my device.
