Online you can find many “premium” Bluetooth speakers. Some of them are very expensive. Today I will review a fairly popular and known Bluetooth speaker – JBL Xtreme (Amazon link). Let’s see if it’s worth buying.
The JBL Xtreme is a “premium” and pretty expensive Bluetooth speaker. And it definitely sounds like that ! The sound quality is second to none ! The basses are so powerful, and overall – the sound is perfectly balanced. You can find many cheaper speakers online, but they won’t sound nearly as good as JBL’s Xtreme portable speaker. You really get what you pay for.
By the way, if you can spend some extra money, and want a portable Bluetooth speaker with even better sound quality – be sure to check out the Infinity One (Amazon link) premium wireless portable speaker.
The JBL Xtreme Bluetooth speaker does look nice. In my opinion – most of JBL’s products (especially their speakers) are really well designed. They definitely know a thing or two about making beautiful products. This speaker is not small, but you can still carry it with you – it’s not super heavy or something like that.
The battery of this portable speaker lasts about 9-10 hours. That’s not too bad. You have to remember that this speaker is very powerful. so it’s battery life can not and should not be compared to smaller speakers.
The JBL Xtreme speaker has a built-in USB port. You can use it to charge your smartphone. I think this is very useful. Not all Bluetooth speaker have that.

Old Review (Previous Review Version) :
JBL is a company I really like. The first product I bought from them (many years ago) was computer speakers. They were not expensive at all, and after connecting them to the computer – I was amazed ! The sound quality shocked me. That’s when I knew JBL is a serious company. They really know how to make speakers, and their Bluetooth speakers are excellent. The JBL Xtreme wireless speakers are expensive – and that’s for a reason. They are amazing. The sound quality is really good – if you never owned speakers that expensive in the past- you will be amazed. More and more people are buying Bluetooth speakers now days. In the past, the battery life of these devices was not very good – and the Bluetooth connecting was not as stable. Now, it’s completely different. Most Bluetooth speakers have powerful built-in battery. The JBL Xtreme for example – will last about 10 hours ! Yes, you read it right. A speaker this good and this powerful – and it lasts so long !
The device is very easy to use – you can connect and pair it with any Bluetooth enabled device like your smartphone or tablet. You can actually connect up to 3 devices to this speaker. That’s a very cool feature that I really like. Not all speaker have it.
I also liked the design of the JBL Xtreme Bluetooth speaker – it’s really nice. I really don’t care that much about the design of my headphones and speakers (including the wireless ones – and I own many of them) – the most important thing for me is sound quality. But – if you pay so much money, why not get a nice design as well? That’s not a bad thing 🙂
If you want to check a similiar Bluetooth speaker and compare – check out our Infinity One review. This Bluetooth speaker is really good as well. The design is very similiar as well. Both speaker are good – you obly have to choose which one is better for your needs.
I hope you liked my JBL Xtreme review. If you have any questions about this Bluetooth speaker – comment below.
