The Jam Audio Speakers are a great line of speakers that are ideal for travelers. Unlike so many wireless speaker lines that simply offer white, black and gray, the Jam guys offer a wide range of speakers in fun, creative colors. They’re also convenient, and by convenient, I mean, they’re compact, easy to carry around and one is even waterproof so you can bring it in the shower or to the beach with you.
The Plus Bluetooth Speakers let you pair two for true stereo sound, allowing you to connect wirelessly, up to 30 feet away from your Bluetooth friendly device without the need for cords to tie you down. Battery life is decent also, with rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that deliver up to six hours of wireless play before you need to charge them up again. They are $59.99 and come in a variety of really run colors, including purple, pink, blue, yellow and silver. I have them in purple and silver, silver ideal for putting somewhere in the living room or bedroom, purple, more fun for on-the-go or to use with kids.
At the same price point, Jam XT Extreme Wireless Bluetooth Speakers are ruggedized and tough enough to really go anywhere, another ideal match for the mobile warrior. The speakers are splash proof, water proof, and drop proof with a built-in carabiner for easy transport, making them a perfect add for your luggage. For adventure and music lovers, this speaker set is great for all your outdoors fun. They have a slightly more rugged look to them and come in five colors: orange, red, black, pink and blue.
A little water shouldn’t shut down your music or your podcasts. Wirelessly connect to the Jam Splash is their waterproof speaker, which is ideal for serious music lovers who want to “jam” in the shower, in the rain or on the beach. There’s a built-in microphone that lets you wirelessly take calls as well. The unit has eight hours of battery life, is priced at $79.99 and comes in blue and gray.
Note that I had a tricky time with pairing them in the beginning but after a quick tech support call, I was sorted out. Go to jamaudio.com for more and also check out their hip and very cool blog.
