The JBL Xtreme is nowhere near to being as popular as some of the Bose bluetooth speakers in this price range, but that definitely doesn’t reflects what it offers in terms of sound quality. In fact, it’s one of the few speakers in this price range that offers the rather rare combination of well balanced sound and great bass.
Here’s why it may turn out to be significantly better than its closest competitors.
Bass and Balance Makes it Stand Out!
First things first, many customers who bought the Xtreme mentioned about how it “blows away” its competition, including the considerably more popular speakers in the price range with its amazing sound quality.
Now that’s saying something, given that many other speakers in this price range, including some of the Bose ones, come with a fairly impressive sound quality.
However, when it comes to the Xtreme, it offers a great bass, which is a really strong feature of the Bose speakers, but without compromising on the “balance” of the sound in any way. This makes the bass feel great and not overwhelming, while maintaining the great clarity of the sound.
The treble is also very crisp, even at higher volumes, which is again a sign of a truly premium-quality speaker.
Finally, with a sound output of 40W, it’s also way louder than its previous versions as well as some other speakers in the price range, making it great for outdoor use.
The JBL Xtreme comes with a massive rechargeable 10,000 mAh li-ion battery, which is perhaps the best you can get for the price. It boasts a playtime of around 15 hours, but you would usually get much more unless you want to give a hard time to your ears by playing it at higher volumes (it’s too loud).
Many Other Exciting Features
The Xtreme actually comes with a long list of features, and we will take a look at some of them below.
- Although slightly heavy, it’s fairly portable, and even comes with a strap to make it easier to carry
- Great build quality, very solid and sturdy
- Its splash-proof, but may get damaged if submerged in water
- Crystal clear hands-free calling
Although a little pricey, if you don’t want to compromise on either of the bass or sound balance, the JBL Xtreme may turn out to be well worth the price.
