HMDX Audio: Get Sweet Sounds With the Bluetooth Alarm Clock and Jam XT Extreme Bluetooth Speaker

This post may contain affiliate links and/or Amazon Affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

My son who has an iPod 5, wanted a charging station in his room but one that he could also listen to music. That’s when I came across the Freedom from HMDX. This little system fit the bill for him!

Freedom Bluetooth Alarm Clock with Lightning Pin

Freedom Bluetooth Alarm Clock


Not only does the Freedom charge his iPod but he can listen to his music on it or he can listen to the radio (FM only) and preset his favorite stations. He does wish that AM was available as he likes to listen to baseball games which are only on the AM stations.

This system comes with a preset clock, meaning the clock will automatically set itself when first plugged in. There is also a sync button, which my son has said has come in handy quite a few times.

It features 2 alarm settings plus a one day alarm instead of an everyday alarm function and a dimmer control to adjust the brightness, for the nighttime.

You are able to plug in your iPad but just make sure to pull out the stabilizing drawer on the back to add stability when the iPad is docked, hate for it to tip over!

Bluetooth is the best feature! This just means that you can listen to your device wirelessly which connects to all smartphones, tablets and MP3 players.

Hit the snooze button for the sleep feature to set the sleep timer for 90, 80, 70…10, or 5 minutes (I wish I could fall asleep in five minutes!). The alarm also features gradual wake, which means that the alarm begins soft and slowly gets louder.

HMDX Audio JAM XT Extreme Ruggedized Wireless Speaker

Jam XT Extreme Wireless Speaker Jam XT Extreme Ruggedized Wireless Speaker


This little bad boy connects wirelessly, up to 30 feet away from your Bluetooth friendly device. So you can pair this speaker with your iPhone and “jam” out anywhere! 

Even though it may look small, it produces quite a sound. It is compatible with nearly all Bluetooth-enabled devices: smart phones, tablets and most notebooks. It also comes with an line-in port for connecting non-Bluetooth devices. You will need to pair this with your device before you can listen to it though.

The Jam XT has a rubbery outside which makes it splash proof, drop proof, and dirt proof! I love that it is almost indestructible, specially if my teen gets ahold of it! The Jam XT is available in five colors: Black Currant (black), Blueberry (blue), Tangerine (orange), Watermelon (pink), and Strawberry (red) and has a flip up carabiner so you can clip it almost anywhere.

Jam’s lithium-ion battery is fully rechargeable and delivers up to four hours of wireless play.  The battery will last up to 4 hours when connected wirelessly and up to 12 hours when connected through Aux-In Audio Jack.

Overall, my son loves his dock for his room, with the ability to listen to his iPod and charge it, he is a happy camper. And the Jam XT Bluetooth Speaker will be great to toss in the bag for the pool this summer or when the kiddos are hanging out back and want to burn off some energy by dancing!
