The year of voice-based assistants is here, and now JAM Audio is announcing three new speakers that support Amazon’s Alexa during CES 2017. The company also announced several new or updated versions of their WiFi and Bluetooth connected speakers and earbuds. Priced competitively against that of the traditional Amazon Echo and the Echo Dot, JAM will also have an even stronger audio solution that can work in both indoor and outdoor spaces.
“Our latest products showcase two major things,” said John Mikkola, audio director of product development at JAM. “The first is that we’re listening to our customers to give them products they’ll love, and the second is making sure we’re keeping our finger on the pulse of the latest innovations in audio.”

Looking to one-up the creator, this is the JAM Audio take on a better Echo. Designed to complement any indoor and outdoor space, the portable speaker features Amazon Alexa Voice Services Technology, as well as WiFi and bluetooth. The 5.5-pound speaker boast up to eight hours of playback, as well as a rugged and durable design that can withstand splashes of water if it’s by the pool. When it ships this spring, it will retail for $250.
Ideally suited for any room in the house, JAM Note boasts Amazon Alexa Voice Services Technology, as well as WiFi and bluetooth. Weighing in at nearly three pounds, the speaker can play your favorite music and receive commands for up to six hours. The Note will also ship this spring and is priced at $120, similarly so to Amazon’s traditional Echo.
Battling closely to the new Amazon Echo Dot, JAM Voice comes in at $60. It’s their most cost-efficient speaker with Amazon Alexa Voice Services Technology in the lineup, and is an entrant for consumers looking for a great speaker who can take commands. The speaker also features WiFi and bluetooth, and can be paired with multiple speakers to produce a much fuller stereo sound, or have music in every room in the house. JAM Voice is available now.
Not only is JAM Audio going up against Amazon’s hardware, they are also following in the footsteps of Apple’s new AirPods. Set to launch in the spring of this year, JAM Unleashed are fully wireless earbuds featuring Bluetooth connectivity. With big sound in demure package, the Unleashed offers up to three hours of playback and the ability for hands-free calling. The included charging case offers seven full charges and a USB port to act as an external battery back for your devices. At launch, it will retail for $120.
