JBL Xtreme 2 review: Taking the party outside


It might not be the prettiest speaker ever, but the JBL Xtreme 2 is designed with purpose and highly practical for outdoors use thanks to its carry

Loud and crisp sound quality ; Massive and clean bass output ; Practical carry handle for carting around ; Robust build quality and water-resistance

Hardly a super attractive design ; Not 360-degree sound output ; No built-in assistant/Alexa support

JBL Xtreme 2 review: The best Bluetooth speaker under £250


With great sound and a versatile design, this is the best outdoor speaker of the summer

Multipurpose design ; Incredibly loud ; Impressive sound quality

No virtual assistant built in ; Expensive

The Xtreme 2 might not have any smart features built in, but it’s everything you’d want from an all-weather-proof Bluetooth speaker, from the outdoorsy design to its sound quality. The Xtreme 2 appeals in more ways than one – it’s a multipurpose...

JBL Xtreme 2


The portable JBL Xtreme 2 speaker can be submerged in water and still pump out loud tunes with intense bass depth, making it ideal for outdoor use.

Powerful audio performance with strong bass response and crisp highs. Waterproof. Solid mic clarity for speakerphone.

No track navigation buttons. Bulky. Not for purists seeking accurate audio performance.

The JBL Xtreme 2 isn't cheap, but for the price, it delivers a solid feature set combined with high-quality audio performance. If you want some added thump in the bass department, the portable XTreme 2 delivers. When you throw in the waterproof build,...

JBL Xtreme 2 is a jumbo Bluetooth speaker that's made for tailgating


With upgraded drivers and a fully waterproof design, JBL's jumbo portable speaker pumps out the jams -- indoors and out.

The JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth speaker delivers very big sound for a medium-sized portable Bluetooth speaker. It's fully waterproof, can charge devices from a built-in USB-out port (you supply the cable), has a built-in microphone for speakerphone calls

A little pricey. Its slightly treble push can make the speaker sound a little too bright and edgy at high volumes.

The JBL Xtreme 2 is a jumbo-sized Bluetooth speaker that trades light and easy portability for much fuller sound, both indoors and outdoors.

JBL Xtreme 2 review: A sturdy Bluetooth speaker that's up for serious partying


Boasting a weatherization rating of IPX7, JBL's beefy Xtreme 2 portable Bluetooth speaker can deliver the tunes just about anywhere.

Surprisingly good, rich sound ; Strong weatherization (it's rated IPX7) ; Voice activation and speakerphone functionality

Boomy bass ; JBL Connect app is rudimentary; should offer EQ

The JBL Xtreme 2 is an excellent portable Bluetooth speaker. Setup is a snap, and it sounds surprisingly good for such a small speaker, though the bass can be quite boomy. I wish the JBL Connect app included EQ (even if only simple treble and bass...

JBL sound heritage comes to the fore in the JBL Xtreme 2. It produces a sound that is one of the best for a portable, waterproof, Bluetooth speaker this

Rugged, reliable and waterproof;Amazing frequency response from a sealed, waterproof speaker;Real bass, solid mids and even generous treble

Retail is pricey but at $249 is a steal
