Sweet Portable Speakers - a CES Hit
1/9/2013 by: Darleen Hartley
HMDX Audio has blended the idea of sound, food, and a good time into a product line with a great play on words. A “jam session” is where musicians on various instruments have fun creating improvised music. “Jam” is a thick fruit spread for toast. HMDX's Jam is a portable wireless speaker that comes in colors and names associated with common fruits: Apple (green), Apricot (orange), Blackberry (grey), Blueberry (blue), Grape (purple) and Strawberry (red).
This little go-with-you speaker could fit in a backpack or purse at 2.5" x 2.5" x 2.5. “Super Sweet Sound Quality” is the product tag line and five star reviews have also been sweet, e.g.:
“Such great power from a small speaker” and “By far the best sound for such a compact size.” Plus, the $49.95 price tag shouldn't leave a sour taste in your mouth.
The small Bluetooth speaker connects wirelessly to most Bluetooth devices, including smartphones, “i” products, MP3 players, notebooks, and eReaders. Sound travels to the speaker across a 30 foot room leaving enough space for a dance party. The lithium-ion battery is fully rechargeable, but only holds the charge for four hours of wireless use. Like Cinderella's ball, your 8PM party must end at midnight, unless connected through Aux-In Audio Jack which lets you groove until the roosters crow.
Seen at Booth 4018 North Hall at CES, the Jam Plus can be paired with another Plus speaker for a two-channel stereo experience. Due out soon, it is only $10 more than the original speaker. Keeping with the theme, these speakers are uniquely packaged in colorful jam jars like you would find on a grocery shelf.
You can preview on line how easy the speaker is to set up and operate by reading the illustrated two page User Manual. The product comes with a one year limited warranty. If you do need to return the item, it is shipped with a pre-printed return label and a promise of a full refund if returned within 30 days.
Their provocative video, although cleverly demonstrating how to “Spread the Jam” should be labeled, “Professional Actors, Don't Try This at Home.”
