Jam Wireless Portable Speaker
One of the cooler / tech-ier Christmas presents I got this year was the Jam Wireless Portable Speaker by HDMX. This speaker is actually 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches and comes in a variety of colors, which can be seen on their website. The speaker can be hooked up either by a standard headset jack to your device, or it can be connected using bluetooth, making the speaker wireless and extremely portable and functional. The speaker has an internal lithium-ion battery that lasts about four hours between charges.
And while all that functionality was impressive, the thing that truly surprised me was the sound quality. I have used portable speakers of this size before and typically found their sound quality was lacking. Most of them were too quiet, or even tinny, but this speaker has a sound quality that easily fills a room, without sounding tinny. And while it isn’t going to rock out the house, it will provide enough music to fill the room. In fact over the Christmas holiday I used it quiet a bit with Pandora to stream Christmas music, which filled our house very nicely. And with it being so small and wireless, it was very easy to move from room to room.
Just this small speaker has already replaced a lot of our bigger stereos and docking stations due to its mobility. So if you are looking for a quick, easy way to take your music with you on the go, I would highly recommend this speaker. With all of its features and its sound quality, it does prove the point that big things do come in small packages.
