Customer Reviews for JBL Xtreme3 Portable Bluetooth Waterproof Speaker
Flip2, charge 3, x2 and x3 up in a symphony of utter madness is one glaring problem. The extreme series (and possibly newer models of other ones) have a deal breaker for me. They in an attempt to save battery (I can only assume) will cut power to the speaker only. The whole unit doesn't power down until 30 minutes have elapsed but if there is a (large) break in music or any silence in a movie especially if plugged into the aux the sound (or lack there of) will stop! Upon restarting when sound is detected it will effectively cut off the first part of a word or note of a song. Infuriating!!! I didn't notice this as it usually stayed playing music, but once I used it for a sound bar as mine had died I noticed and have ever since then as well!
Jbl please, please for the love of great sounding music movies and whatnot. You guys make great stuff! Fix this! Maybe through an update that let's you disable it in the app. But I have seen this in MANY THREADS people playing ultra low or extremely hight frequency im talking 10 or 25k htz 24/7 just to keep the darn thing running. I am willing to buy the x3 if you fix this! If it is mechanical I am also willing to pay to fix the one I have and buy the 3rd and pay to fix it as well!
Sound quality 4.6
Visually appealing 5.0
Portability 3.9 (this doesn't count to the average)
Should be a rounded up 5
But I must dock 2 solid stars
Now the big question, how's it sound? I've got quite a few JBL products and I can say for certain it you like other JBL audio devices you'll like this one. It's got their touch to the audio for sure. I was hoping a little more depth from the bass, drops off any meaningful volume under 40hz (nerd speak here, it can't do REALLY really low sounds). That being said, the beauty in this speaker is in its default EQ and crossover. They really hit the nail on the head finding a setting that makes the bass very present and clear at any volume and still keeps all of its higher register fidelity. Translation? It makes everything you listen to clear crisp and lively and projects well.
Overall it's a solid speaker, my only issue with it currently (if I can even call it an issue) is it's so pretty, I don't want to get it dirty!! But that's what it's built for and it's been very easy to clean so far. I definitely recommend the JBL Xtreme 3.
I liked the added bonus of the newer USB charging option so I don't have to mess around with different cables while traveling and I can give my phone a bit of extra juice straight from the speaker if I really need it.
I think this might be a bit of overkill for your average home speaker, but it is perfect for summer beach parties, camping and tailgating - although the neighbors might not love it, you will!
Highly recommend as a speaker to take with you while you are out there living life.
Overall this product is nothing short of excellent! I haven't tested the waterproof features of the Xtreme 3, but if the videos are accurate, I do not think there will be any problem. The Xtreme 3 also comes with a very nice carry strap that makes it super portable and convenient. One of the nicest features of the Xtreme 3 is that charges via a USB C port. The nice thing about the USB C port on the Xtreme 3 is that I can also use it to charge my own devices - think iPod or iPhone for that matter.
I am taking the Xtreme 3 with me on my annual winter camping trip with the boys this coming weekend. It will be cold, so that will be a good test for the battery as the speaker will be playing 12-14 hours straight. I have a TACKLIFE T8 Starter that has dual smart USB outputs that I plan on using to charge the Xtreme 3 safely. As I am in charge of the tunes during camping, I’m going all in with the Xtreme 3.
