The first thing that grabs your attention when you look at the HMDX Jam Bluetooth Wireless Speaker is that it comes in an actual jam jar! Cute! Not only that, but it comes in various colors and all of them are fruit flavors such as grape, blueberry, strawberry, blackberry, apple and apricot. That’s great, but does the Jam actually jam? Or is it more jelly?
We think it’s pretty sweet! The Jam plays much louder and clearer than you might expect from such a small speaker. In addition the Bluetooth connectivity is quick and painless without a lot of fidgeting to get it to work. My connection was almost instantaneous.
HDMX says that the Jam wireless connection will work up to 30 feet away and we found that to be true in our tests. We experienced no loss of sound quality at that distance. In addition the battery will typically last up to 4 hours depending on the volume at which you play it. If you really crank it up, don’t expect it to last that long. It comes with a USB cable for recharging.
The Jam sells for about $40 and is available at most large retailers.
