JBL Xtreme 3 review


JBL's rugged wireless speaker serves up a sonic surprise

Rugged build ; Impressive detail and dynamics ; Strong sense of timing

No smart features ; No hands-free for phone calls

The JBL Xtreme 3 is a versatile and talented wireless speaker that’s as happy chilling at home as it is being the life and soul of a party

JBL Xtreme review


High performance wrapped in a stylish, durable shell

Stylish build ; 10,000mAH battery ; Splashproof ; Booming sound

Heavy ; Pricey ; Ports difficult to access

JBL's Xtreme isn't as good at pumping out high fidelity sound as its cousin, the Infinity One, but at that, it's still a fantastic speaker. Sound quality, battery performance and the splashproof design are on-par with what you'd expect for the price.

JBL Xtreme review


You can have hours of fun with this fun, flexible wireless speaker...

Full, large-scale sound ; Care with dynamics ; Solidly built

Bass is a little heavy on its feet

Bold and powerful, but capable of great subtlety, the JBL Xtreme needs only to tighten up in the bass to become a real all-rounder

JBL Xtreme 3 review: Boshing out the bass


The robust party speaker - complete with carry handle - adds dust protection to its design tweaks. It brings big bass, but can it bring big love?

Loud and crisp sound quality ; Boshes out the low-end - there's plenty of bass here ; Fully dust- and water-resistant (IP67)

Design still a bit 'loud' ; Clip-on carry handle is hardly subtle ; Rear flap too fiddly ; Not 360-degree sound

It's still not be the prettiest speaker ever, but JBL's portable - literally, there's a clip on shoulder strap - is fully dust- and water-resistant this time around. But, most important of all, despite still not delivering 360-degree sound output, is...

  (Rating Hidden)

Keeping its signature cylindrical shape with bouncing radiators at either end, the JBL Xtreme is a supersized version of its other popular portable wireless speakers. But at £250, the price has been inflated too. Can it translate its bulk into...

JBL Xtreme review: Get the party started


JBL raises the bar for portable speakers - the Xtreme is a fabulous party speaker

I always thought having lots of bass was a great thing, but the JBL Xtreme proves there is such a thing as having a touch too much. This isn’t a massive issue, but it does somewhat tarnish the appeal of the Xtreme, especially at its hefty £250 price tag.

JBL Xtreme 3 Review


Powerful, bass-forward audio with four drivers and dual passive radiators ; Outdoor-friendly waterproof build ; Can be linked with multiple JBL speakers

Expensive ; No speakerphone function

JBL's Xtreme 3 speaker delivers robust bass depth in a rugged, waterproof build ideal for outdoor gatherings.

JBL Xtreme


The JBL Xtreme lives up to its name—it's easily one of the most powerful portable Bluetooth speakers we've tested.

Exceptionally powerful audio with big bass and bright highs. Built-in speakerphone. Splash-proof. Can pair with three devices at once.

Plenty of digital signal processing—especially at top volumes.

Performance and Conclusions On tracks with powerful sub-bass content, like The Knife's "Silent Shout," the Xtreme delivers, well, extreme bass response. This is probably the most intense bass we've heard from a portable Bluetooth speaker, other than...

JBL Xtreme 3 review


The JBL Xtreme 3 is a portable set of speakers that you can use at your computer or at the beach

Loud, bassy audio ; Waterproof and dustproof ; Bluetooth and AUX connectivity ; Long battery life ; Portable

No EQ options ; Expensive

The JBL Xtreme 3 offers loud, bassy sound packed into a waterproof and portable design for you to take anywhere, but it’s pricey.

JBL Xtreme review: Big sound with a punch


Our latest Bluetooth speaker review takes a look at one of JBL's newest. Find out just how it compares to the competition in our JBL Xtreme review.

Design, sound, battery life.

Bit pricey but you really do get what you pay for.

There’s no mistaking why JBL dubbed this speaker the Xtreme. It looks great, packs a punch, has great battery life, can recharge your devices, and can even survive the beach, poolside, or slightly rainy day. If you’re in the market for a Bluetooth...
