JBL Xtreme review: Enough boom to fill a very big room

Michael Brown | Sept. 30, 2015
If I didn’t know better, I’d say JBL took the winning design of its Charge 2+ portable Bluetooth speaker and handed it off to Hanz and Franz for a month-long pump-you-up camp.

Bass fiends will like the Xtreme’s extreme bass response, but I found that it delivered just a little too much of a good thing. And at $300, it’s considerably more expensive than the other two contenders. It is, on the hand, the best choice in this roundup if you’re looking for a portable speaker you can take camping or to the beach. The zippered cover over its many ports is a very smart idea.
