JBL Xtreme Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker has dual external passive radiators establish the speaker powerful. Its bass is so powerful so that their slogan is “Hear the bass, feel the bass, see the bass”. The speaker’s sound is crystal clear and Echo canceling with high bass. You can trust JBL Xtreme to bring the excitement & enjoyment wherever you want it. This speaker has Built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery supports up to 15 hours of playtime and charges devices via dual USB ports. It can connect wirelessly up to 3 devices like Computers, Laptops, Smartphones or Tablets to the speaker and play tremendous powerful stereo sound. To reset the unit, hold onto the power button and Bluetooth at the same time. The speaker is ‘Splash proof’ means extremely waterproof, no more worrying about rain or spills; you can even clean it with running tap water so that you can take it anywhere.
This cylinder-shaped boom box has dual bass radiators that take center stage here, detailed with a smooth, flown impression and a rather delicate brand placement. The operating buttons are located on its top, cover the usual list of functions found in a modern Bluetooth speaker, with one small surprise in the mix. This cylinder-shaped speaker features JBL Connect, a button that allows you to pair up with a second JBL Xtreme wirelessly.
Through this JBL Xtreme review, we shall clarify its performance. With a name like Xtreme, you’d hope that its performance brings and, gratefully, it does. This speaker is skillful of the super-loud playback that it’s expected size, which is perfect as a companion on the road, camping and small outdoor/ indoor party, office conferences/ meeting/ seminar and on the bookshelf for a music lover. JBL Xtreme is a compact speaker easily keep into a bag. It is also perfect as a companion for hiking, Boating, Kayaking, outdoor adventure, at beach comfortably with no wires to get in the way.
JBL Xtreme sounds excellent, it can be controlled by jazz, hip-hop, and rock songs well and emphasized the particular aspects that make each category unique. Jazz and hip-hop are bass-heavy and mids are fairly warm in their sound. Rock sounds hard-hitting, with highs that don’t change at high volumes. The JBL Xtreme control all three just in the right way. Xtreme represented the apex of sound performance for the size and cost of the Unit. JBL’s twist on the cylindrical speaker is, the time without end one is excellent audio reliability. The Xtreme also able to work as a speakerphone. It can take calls with it and the voice playback is crystal clear, the recipient also able to realize that. The noise and echo-canceling microphone built into the speaker, and voice sounded like speaking into a phone.
JBL Xtreme speaker connecting to other devices like Computers, Laptops, Smartphones or Tablets is very easy and strong through Bluetooth. Its 10,000mAH internal battery is truly 15 hours of music playback at normal to loud volume levels. At a lower volume, it may able to squeeze an extra two hours out of the battery life. Its sides are capped in soft rubber to give the JBLXtreme some resistance from dings and up toward the top of the speaker, JBL installed tough, brushed metal hooks that allow you to hook on the included strap. This adds versatility, making it easy to loop the speaker over your shoulder during a walk or hang it from a tree branch for an outdoor gathering.
Into this JBL Xtreme review, once again mentioning as splash proof technology of JBL Xtreme can supposedly survive under running tap water. With this offering additional given that two passive bass radiators on each side of the frame as seen with previous JBL models.
JBL Xtreme Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker connections are provided through Bluetooth and AUX 3.5mm too, with this device being able to connect to three simultaneous Computers, Laptops, Smartphones or Tablets devices through the wireless service. Other connection two USB ports on this product for charging and a charging input port. The charging port is not a micro-USB. To power up this product, JBL has included a power pack that provides 3A of flow, graded at 19V directly from the wall. JBL Xtreme Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker has the internal drivers include two 63mm woofers and two 35mm tweeters, all powered by two 20W bi-amps. Its technical specification analysis shows that, this product frequency response of 70Hz – 20KHz and is rated at a signal to noise ratio of over 80 dB.

What’s in the box?
JBL Xtreme review will show ‘what you will get in the box’.Qualifying as portable thanks for its carry strap. JBL Xtreme Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker has also fearful in its 3A wall charger and a group of manuals. The quick start guide is well laid out with easy to understand images. The included wall charger is an annoying accessory as people are the huge fan of micro-USB. I think the overall presentation of this product as JBL is trying to present it as large and in charge, with wall charging plugs will jog your memory that large household products such as Hi-Fi speakers and it helping your mind associate this product with class and quality. Next up is the complete charging power. At 19V 3A, this is going to charge much faster and more efficiently than most USB chargers on the market, which provide you with 1.2A – 2.3A charging speeds. Especially if they try to charge with the massive 10,000mAH battery through a standard 0.5A computer USB socket, users may think the speaker is weak and slow. There’s no carry pouch included. Because it’s large and water resistant, it may more convenient if the JBL Xtreme has a carry bag of its own. Once again there’s no included AUX cable, even though there’s an AUX port.

In view of this JBL Xtreme review, our final thoughts that seriously big crisp clear sound and punchy bass are rivaled by none with this particular model. This massive product will have no problem projecting to a family gathering outside. The sound performance is harmonized with the impressive internal battery and massive sound stand atmosphere that this product offers and this speaker should be at the top of your list when looking for a heavyweight Bluetooth competitor. The negative sides come with the expensive pricing US$ 199.00, a large overall size, and bulky weight. In the end, these factors don’t matter if you prefer seriously big crisp clear sound with punchy bass.
