We’re smack-dab in the middle of summer, which means my family and I are outside A LOT. I try to take advantage of every opportunity available to get outside with my little guys and let them burn off some of their (seemingly endless) energy. I grab my lawn chair and my Kindle, and I let them run wild.




My little ones are also music lovers, so oftentimes when we’re outside they want to listen to music while we play. Back in my day, I had to load up my boom box with fresh batteries and pop in the soundtrack to Cocktail if I wanted to jam outside. (Oh, the dance routines I came up with. But that’s another post.) These days, I have our entire music library at my fingertips. All I have to do is grab my smartphone, and we can listen to whatever we want, wherever we want.


The downside to this is that the little speaker on my phone isn’t really meant for enjoying music with others in the outdoors. Thankfully, AT&T has some great portable speakers that can connect with your phone to produce stereo-quality sound. These products are easy to use, and the sound is amazing. I love that AT&T has portable speakers to meet every price point, so you can find a portable speaker that fits your budget and your lifestyle. Here are a few of the portable speaker options AT&T has to offer:


HMDX JamHMDX Jam – I had the opportunity to try this speaker out, and it is so awesome. I was able to easily link the speaker up with my phone via Bluetooth, and within a minute we had music filling the air. It connects wirelessly up to 30 feet away and has a rechargeable battery. You can use it with most smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops. I also love that it comes in a variety of colors, including black, blue, purple, red, and green. This neat little gadget is only $49, and it’s definitely worth the price. I know we are going to get hours of enjoyment out of ours.


Jawbone Jambox

Jawbone Jambox – This is another great option if you want big sound in a small package. I’ve heard only good things about the Jawbone Jambox. It has an 85 decibel output capacity, so it will fill even the largest room. It’s compatible with most Bluetooth devices, so you can use it practically anywhere. This product comes in white or black, and it’s available at your local AT&T store. It’s priced at $129, but you can snag it for only $99 with a tablet or phone purchase and a two-year agreement.


Beats by Dr. Dre PillBeats by Dr. Dre™ Pill™ –  If you really want top-of-the-line sound from your portable speaker, you want to go with the Pill. Even though it’s small, it produces a huge sound. This one also works with Bluetooth-able devices, and it’s available in black, red, white, and you can get my favorite color pink exclusively at AT&T. The Beats by Dr. Dre™ Pill™ is priced at $199.
