Android Holiday Gift Ideas Day #19: HMDX Jam XT Portable Wireless Speaker

December 20, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

I know we’ve covered a lot of Bluetooth speakers already, but this one is one that we need to cover. It’s one of the best ones out there that is splash proof, drop proof and dirt proof. It also has a nice hook so you could hang it up in the shower and listen to your favorite tunes in the shower. Without having to worry about the speaker getting damaged. The HMDX Jam XT was reviewed by us earlier this year, and I really liked it. It does com in 5 colors. That would be black, blue, orange, pink and red.

This small Bluetooth speaker is able to give you 4 hours of continuous play, although I was able to get more than that when I was reviewing it. Closer to about 6-8 hours of playback. It will connect to just about every Bluetooth device available, it just needs to be within 30-feet of the speaker. The sides of the speaker are really nice, as it’s made out of the same material used on the new Nexus 7 and Nexus 5. All your controls are on the bottom front,with your microUSB port (to charge it of course) in the back located under a flap.

The HMDX Jam XT is on sale over on Amazon for around $60, although some of the other colors are a bit cheaper. They are all available for Amazon Prime shipping, so if you order today, there’s a good chance you’ll get your speaker before Christmas, so you can still give it as Christmas gift. We’ve got links to all five colors down below if you’re interested.
