This was definitely the year of the wireless speakers and docks (Bluetooth and NFC) at CES. They were everywhere. But one speaker company came back very strong at CES; HMDX. I have the HMDX Jam and use it all the time, and I mean ALL the time. I was excited to see what they had to offer for 2013. Here’s HMDX’s new lineup of Bluetooth speakers.
HMDX JAM Plus
Similar to the original Jam; the Jam Plus loses the black border and has one solid color. A major difference though, is that it allows you to pair two Jam Plus speakers and create full stereo sound. The speaker sounds great, just like the original.
HMDX JAM XT
For those of you who live the rugged, wet, dirty life; the Jam XT is for you. It’s rated IP64 which makes it dirt and splash proof. Just like the other Jam speakers; the rechargeable battery allows for up to 4 hours of wireless playback time. You can of course connect it with 3.5 mm auxiliary cable if wireless playback isn’t an option.
HMDX JAM Zzz
The name goes well with the product. This is Jam’s Bluetooth Alarm Clock. The dock is big enough to house any smartphone. It charges your phone while streaming music.
HMDX JAM Splash
This wireless shower speaker is awesome. It’s water-resistant; for use in the shower and poolside (no submerging in water). You can play music for up to 6 hours.
HMDX Jam Party
If the regular Jam speaker isn’t enough for you; you should move up to the Jam Party. This Bluetooth speaker has 4 stereo speakers for great sound. Play wirelessly or connect to the AC adaptor. If you choose to go wireless; you can play music for up to 8 hours.
HMDX JAM Fusion
This is HMDX’s attempt to enter the headphone world. These Bluetooth headphones are unique in that they let you pair one set with another set of headphones. Sharing your music wirelessly with a friend is no problem.
HMDX Sleep Station Projection Alarm Clock
This has to be my favorite item from the new line up. It has a USB for charging your device overnight. You can set up dual alarms with gradual wake (which I definitely need). And my fave feature is that is projects the time onto the ceiling or the wall. There is also a version that tells you the weather. It tells you the temperature indoors and out. (HMDX Sleep Station Projection and Weather Alarm Clock $49.99)
HMDX Chill Wireless Alarm Clock
This little alarm clock connects to devices wirelessly through Bluetooth. It has the USB port for charging as well.
HMDX Cube Bluetooth Alarm Clock
If you don’t like the style of the Chill; the Cube is another alarm clock. It has a bigger LED display and a nightlight as well.
This alarm clock keeps all the iPhone 5 users in mind. It has the lightning pin to charge your device while playing the music from your device. It even has a micro USB port for your other devices.
HMDX Rave Portable Rechargeable Speaker
This bluetooth speaker connects wirelessly to all devices; smartphones, tablets, and notebooks. Listen to music for up to 4 hours. Price: $39.99
HDMX Roam Portable Rechargeable Speaker
This speaker is made for anywhere use. With built-in prongs for anytime charging allow for music play at any time. The Roam has built-in phone capabilities as well. You can manage calls with the built-in speaker phone. It’s really small; so it’s great for kitchen and/or bathroom use.
HMDX Stream Wireless Stereo Speaker
HMDX definitely has something for everyone. We’re looking forward to reviewing some of these items to let you know which speakers are best for each situation. With the affordable pricing; you can pick and choose to have a HMDX speaker for every room of the house.
If you’re checking out the beach or any outdoor summertime activity this holiday weekend, the HMDX Jam Speaker should definitely be on your gadget “go-to” list! Unlike other bluetooth speakers, the HMDX Jam Speaker gives you quality sound in a sleek compact speaker that you can fit in your purse or bag & carry it anywhere on the go. The HMDX Jam connects wirelessly up to 30-feet away and works with all Bluetooth-enabled smartphones, tablets and laptops/desktops including iPhone, iPad & iPod. The rechargeable, lithium-ion battery delivers up to four hours of wireless play.
HMDX Jam is available in six “flavors” — Strawberry, Grape, Blueberry, Blackberry, Apricot and Apple — and is available nationwide, virtually anywhere portable electronics are sold, including Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, Kohl’s, and more.
Simply charge the device (3 hours are required for a full charge) via the micro USB chord through the computer and you’re ready for quality sound, no matter where you are! Using the Line in audio jack, you can watch movies from the pool or beach for up to 12 hours OR use the bluetooth connectivity for up to 4 hours of music.
I love packing my small HMDX Jam while traveling – you never know when you need your soundtrack while on the go.
The small size and sweet sound of the HMDX Jam Bluetooth Wireless Speaker makes it perfect for almost any setting, from the kitchen to the bedroom, the college student’s dorm room, the office, the boat and beyond! HMDX Jam is the perfect travel companion to bring your music with you. The tapered cylinder-shaped HMDX Jam comes fresh-packed and sealed in a distinctive clear jar, topped with a metal lid, and featuring vibrant, fruit-inspired colors.
