They really stress the word extreme on their marketing because the audio gadget is capable of running great performance even on the most extreme environment. Biking and racing on mud, camping, hiking, and even rafting are an easy thing to do with this one. You could feel its solid build by only looking at it. You don’t need to worry of breaking it because the build quality is top notch. We might need to see it deeper to know how capable it is. To make it easier for you to decide, here the full review about this audio gadget. So we hope you enjoy it.
The heavyweight Design With Amazing Battery Life
The audio gadget is so suitable to be called as portable, but the weight is quite bigger than the most gadgets on this similar price. I don’t see it bad because the material is very rugged and I don’t even have any worry if it’s slipping from my hands. The speaker is fully wrapped with splashproof material and capable on preventing some water splashing and mud. The splashproof doesn’t mean it would be fully protected from water, but it is extreme enough for any environment. First I thought that holding it will be difficult, but I see that the fabric material is giving a good grip on it. They also put two metal hooks if you don’t want to always carrying and just strap it on your backpack. One thing that I need to stress is the charging port is not protected, so make sure to dry it first before you charge it.
The speaker is packing with two external passive radiators that you also can find on the Flip 3. The extreme is just better on the power due its larger size. The playback controls are well completed with many selections on the buttons. You get Bluetooth pairing buttons, JBL button, volume button, power button, and play button that also used as the skipping track if you double tap it. it is so well complete and you might not needed your phone to control it.
The biggest selling point for the product is the battery life. With 10000 mah battery pack, the device is able to play the track nonstop for more than 14 hours. This is probably the best one in term of batter life. The battery life is still good even though you adjust the volume to highest. The audio is still loud while maintaining the battery efficiency. This is what you need if you love doing some traveling.

Sound performance And Connectivity
One thing that I don’t like is the sound stuttering that is coming at the beginning of song. It doesn’t always appear, but could be annoying sometimes. Besides that is problem, both lows and mids are great here. The bass is pretty easy to distinguish on the lows and you will not be disappointed with the bass power. They also do similar thing on the mids with clear and warm vocal for the most parts of song. However the highs are probably not the best one here. It gets easily pretty loud, but I noticed the sound is little harsh. The overall performance is still good and acceptable.
The connectivity is fully depended on Bluetooth. I don’t find any skipping sound during my test. It is worth to mention that the range is not too far, but you would never get any stuttering sound as long as you are in the range zone. That’s what you need to know about the connectivity on it.
|Good balance on sounds.||The highs is little breaking on the highest volume.|
|Material covered with fabric.||The size is big.|
|Included strap for better portability.||-|
Not an easy job for picking the best portable speaker that suit our needs. JBL Extreme is overall good in term of performance and battery life. If you love to do some pool party that needs a great audio gadget, this one would be really perfect with its loudness and great battery life. You also would be free from using of your smartphone with the fully playback controls on it. It might be worth for you since the value is so high. At last, please make any comment if you have any question.
