Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good All Around Speaker This speaker is 5 stars for sound quality and battery life but the volume level while loud indoors could be louder for outdoor use. It is not a big jump up from the smaller version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bye, bye boom box Last summer I heard a JBL Charge 4 that this guy had down on his boat. I was looking for something small to replace a pretty large old Sony boom box that was taking up too much space in my boat. I decided to try the Extreme 2 since I was looking for a little better sound than the Charge 4 but didn't want the bulk of the Boombox. Sounds good outside but really shines in an enclosed space. Perfect for a cruiser or yacht.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds fantastic! I bought the JBL Xtreme 2 from JBL as refurbished item. I was a little skeptical but it had a warranty, so I figured “what do I have to lose”. The wife thought I was crazy spending that much on Bluetooth speaker until she heard it for the first time. It has exceptional sound. I was worried that it wouldn’t be loud enough around the pool but there is nothing to worry about. We find ourselves turning it down because it’s too loud, and that’s at just over 50% volume. I can’t comment on the battery life or how well it holds up over time because we’ve only had it for about 10 days. With that said, I am very impressed and so happy that I chose this speaker. Well done JBL! Quality speaker and fantastic sound!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound, very tough and durable. I bought this product because I needed a speaker that I could take to the beach that was loud and could last all day. I had a smaller speaker for the beach but every day, someone with a louder speaker would set up right behind my chair and play the same song over and over again all day as loud as they could. It was so rude! On top of all of that, my old speakers battery wouldn’t last that long. All of my problems are solved with this speaker! Glad I made this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile! Rather than installing an audio system in my boat, which would have been several hundred dollars... I bought the refurbished JBL Xtreme 2 and hang it on my boat. The battery lasts all day and it's waterproof! Now I have a speaker I can take elsewhere, for way less than the dedicated audio system in a boat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sound. Battery wasn’t so great. I bought this a month ago and I I love it. However the battery doesn’t last as long as I’d like it to. Turned my JBL speaker all the way up for 6-7ish hours and it was on one bar. I also don’t like that I can’t charge it in my car, if I’m camping or at the lake. Over all it’s a great speaker that puts out some amazing sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected - very satisfied Bought this to play outdoors. Took it on a recent beach trip and it worked very well. Bluetooth connects quickly and has good range. Sound quality was terrific. This meant I never really was able to turn it up very loud as you could hear everything at reasonable volumes, particularly tough in a noisy beach environment. Used it to charge our cell phones while out so that’s a great feature as well. 10 hours on the beach never tested the battery life. Overall very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good speaker! I bought my Extreme 2 on 5/13/2019 and after having it for about 2 month now, I can recommend this product. It’s good enough to be taken to the beach and jam in the water (water proof phone needed) great for the pool. Great battery life, I played mine for about 10 hours at 85% to 100% volume and the battery at the end was still about 35%. I do wish it was I little louder because in open spaces is needed, but in comparison to another speaker I own the Sonos One the Extreme 2 it’s just as load. I also wish I could be charge with a USB C changer to make charging easier on the go (maybe the upcoming model). I Bought another Extreme 2 for my mother and when pair to mine using the JBL connect app is a game changer, you can easily have a beach or pool party. I definitely recommend Spending the extra dollars for the Extreme 2. My brother has a JBL Flip 4 (great for the size) and a JBL Charge 4 (good)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! I got this about... 2 weeks ago. I have used it everyday since. I have played it from low to high volume for long periods of time. I like this speaker it's a huge step up from a flip 4. I wanted to black version but I somehow got the blue one. I still like it. I think it looks better than black. In my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Imperfect I bought the speaker for when I want to take the mood with me, And the hospitality of the speaker never let's me down. The Speaker held it's own the other day, I took it fishing and I started to rain and the music never stopped. Didn't even think about it and to be honest about it, it made the pack up and clean up go so smoothly it was well worth it. To top it off its waterproof, I love this idea no matter what you can enjoy yourself with it.

I can have it at full blast and still hear where the cars are on my bicycle but don’t be confused, this does not mean that it is quiet.

It is vulnerable to damage very easily.the remain areas are rugged and safe,but you missed the side areas.This makes a drawback for a brand which offers great quality products.Is there any help you can provide on this.I want mine to be safe.Do any of upcoming speaker have corrected this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love it! I bought this speaker around 2 months ago and its very good! The bass is blowing me away. Its very loud for its size and maybe its quieter than xtreme 1 but the sound quality and lower bass frequency is recompensating it. Only issue i have that when its connected to jbl flip 4 by connect+ the flip4 is soo much distorted, like the Low Frequency mode was turned on but its not. Or only i have this issue...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crystal Clear Sound Sound is clear and tremendous clarity even on high volume. Bass is deep enough to really round out music.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing bass and sound I was gifted the xtreme 2 for Christmas and before then I was using the clip 2. JBL in general has great speakers overall. My experience so far with the xtreme 2 is great but like most speakers that are waterproof the sound is going to be limited. If your looking for a good, loud, and portable speaker with good bass buy the xtreme. The price is very worth it but my only gripe is the clips for the lanyard scratch and makes what looks like bronze or brass dust everywhere in the crevice of the clips. Other than that this speaker has been the best for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its almost perfect! I purchased my xtreme 2 months after searching for the best available outdoor portable BT speaker. After watching youtube reviews i made up my mind to purchase it. It looks nice, the case is strong and durable. The sound is clear my only problem which is the biggest dissapointment is the max volume. The speaker just dont sound loud at all. I looked on the web and youtube and found that if i update to the new firmware it would increase volume which i did not think so. It did however sound really nice and clean just not as loud as i expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sound for it's size I love music. I surround myself in it. When I bought my Side x Side, everyone else spends $1000+ for stereos to run Bluetooth. I bought a Fire Extinguisher mount, mounted this to the underside of my roof above my rearview mirror. Works great! Strap it in the mount and I can ride all day listening to tunes and sounds amazing. Plenty loud over Can Am X3 engine noise. I can take it out anytime to charge it or to use it elsewhere. Amazing little speaker. CONS: I am disappointed that it doesn't charge also through 12v. That would have been helpful to keep it plugged in while riding. I wish there were grated covers on the ends or some type of cover. I don't need to see the mini sub flex. I'd rather have it protected.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great sound a even after paired for some time, still will not play beginning of song, processor slow. b has feature to charge other USB devices, if you use it, it ruins the battery life down to 15 minutes at high volume and 45 minutes to one hour low volume, that is disgraceful and the main reason rating is so low. If I do recommend this product it comes with a warning, HOOK NOTHING TO IT. c Sound is awesome d paring of another speaker works well most of the time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound With Not So Great Options. i am a die hard JBL fan! i have 2 sets of headphones, and JBL Xtreme 1 and Xtreme 2. i even have JBL car speakers. I have had the Xtreme 1 for over a year and it is so amazing i use it everyday! my wedding is coming up next weekend so i went and got the xtreme 2 hoping i could pair them and have one speaker outside and one inside but they dont pair together. why would a company like JBL (HC) make speakers that are not compatible, especially speakers with the same name? i cant find a JBL xtreme 1 to buy so i am stuck with 2 speakers that dont connect, and no music for outside at my wedding :(. Sound Quality is great like always, Build Quality is great like always also with the wireless speakers. if you have 2 Xtreme 2's or this is your first purchase it will be great, but do not get it thinking it will pair with older models because it wont.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great speaker before the 1.9 update! With the 1.6 update, the speaker was louder on battery mode, have better sound and bass! It was the perfect speaker. But unfortunately, I was updated to the 1.9. Now the speaker is less loud and sound like a little speaker. Please fix it, or give back the 1.6 update!!! Thanks a lot!
Date published: 2018-09-19
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Speaker was brilliant before update. I was running firmware 1.6 and the sound was terrific, huge bass and punchy mids. I since updated to 1.9 and the update failed on the last few percent and my firmware went to 8.8.8. The speaker is now terrible. The bass is lacking badly and the mids seem to be muffled. The overall sound is now quite poor. I don't know what has happened but I am very unhappy with my speaker now. I just want 1.6 firmware back now, but there is no way of reverting to it. Buyer beware!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound (until I upgraded to firmware 1.9) I originally was looking forward to the new xtreme2 speaker, but then I found out it’s only 20 watts on battery?!!?? WHAT IS JBL THINKING?? And now since I supposedly upgraded to firmware 1.9. (Don’t do it) 1.6 is better.. on 1.9 the bass is weaker on battery, the compression algorithms are worse(speaker looses bass at higher levels, treble is also slightly cut down) but the WORSE is the speaker now compresses audio on AC!!! Are the engineers at JBL losing it? I wish I can go back to Vers 1.6! That actually was better, they still need to enhance the the sound, increase the power to at least 30 watts on battery, we can sure handle losing some battery life for better performance... I might sell this thing if JBL doesn’t make this speaker louder and more powerful than the Xtreme 1 which has boomy bass and harsh treble at higher volumes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A background hissing/noise in the speaker Hello I purchased recently xtreme 2 and noticed on very low volumes or even when playing something on the device by bluetooth or AUX cable and down volume to 0, you can hear a background hissing/noise if put your ear next to the speaker. Is that normal? How can I fix that? Best regards

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great speaker, but.. I’m impressed how convenient and easy to use and move around this device is, the USB outport it’s a huge plus in my opinion! It easily fills up a room, the base it’s punchy and overall quality of the sound it’s impressive. It’s not perfect though! Outside performance it’s average, base noticeably less pronounced, not as loud as it’s competitors but still good mids and highs. I updated to and it’s like I ended up with a different device!! Do not update to this firmware, better stick with!! The sound it’s now muffled and distortion appear above 60% volume. Huge difference between on-battery and AC mode! You’re not supposed to keep this speaker on an office desk. If JBL solves the firmware problem it may be a decent speaker, until then, I wouldn’t recommend it. The performance it’s colse to my friend’s Charge 3 at half the size!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing loudness compared to xtreme I bought this a few days ago and although the speaker does have good sound overall, I bought it because it advertised to be louder than the original xtreme. Not only is the speaker not as loud as the xtreme, there is a marked difference in loudness between battery mode and AC mode which was never an issue with the original xtreme. If it is a party outdoor speaker why would JBL make the AC mode so much more superior. If they could make the battery mode similar loudness to AC mode I would have rated the speaker higher but at this point I can't help but feel disappointed considering the increased size and weight compared to the older xtreme. The UE megaboom is less than half the weight and plays at similar loudness to the xtreme 2 on battery.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better buy Boombox Well, it’s good but overall sound quality gets worse if you turn the volume above 80% (bass reduces seriously). Oh yeah, it’s also not as loud as I expected. For indoor usage it’s good but for pool party or something... just forget about it. I used it once at pool party (14 persons) and I was asked several times to increase the volume when speaker was already at 100%. Would I recommend it? For indoor usage yes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nerfed I love the aesthetic/design and clearness of the speaker, however Im very displeased that the day my Xtreme 2 arrived in the mail, the 1.6 update that increased max volume and bass was pulled. Youtube reviewers stated that the update fixed most of the problems with volume, yet It was still removed. Now anyone who works in support is acting as if there never was an update. JBL, please end this long time trend of matching great hardware, with terrible software/firmware

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Excellent!! EXTREME 2" So far I'm very happy with unit and features!! Clear, Crisp and Clarity...Despite what "You Tube" Reviews say That could be based on the First Version This is on The "Extreme 2".... Lets see what Happens with Battery Life....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not xtreme I am a bit disappointed to say that it sorta sounds like a charge 3. They are both the same loudness, have close to the same amount of bass and both play at 20w. The xtreme 2 has better sound quality but that’s not enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad This is like an iPhone (s) update to be honest the small features that come within the speaker if you really want a change you will have to wait for the next speaker with actual improvement or the only way to enhance your experience with the Xtreme 2 would be by buying another for louder sound.People will favor the quality of when it is plugged in rather than unplugged..due to the quality sounding like a refined Xtreme 1 so that's my response

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Speaker I owned the Flip 3 until the battery gave out (3yrs). I decided to wait on replacing it until this speaker came out. I ordered and received the Extreme 2 very promptly. While it wasn't fully charged it had enough juice to used immediately. The sound did not disappoint, Rich full bass, crisp high notes and good volume. I took it camping and had to turn down the volume out of respect for the fellow campers in the camp ground. Did not test the water proofing nor do I ever really want to. Hopefully they put a decent battery in it so it will last and not fail to charge like so many other speakers do, but only time will tell on that.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improves on a great speaker Although not as loud as the original "Xtreme", the 2nd version improves on sound quality, water proofing, connectivity to other speakers and design. Wish it had more oomph on battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than ever! Well I just got my Xtreme 2, it’s been such a great experience so far, the only thing is that at high volume I could hear some sort of static sound, which is weird because I barely got it. I had some problems with my Charge 3, as soon as the bass hits, very loud static sound would be released, I made some research and I found out that one of the cables of the left speaker was loose. That cable was the cause of the static sound. I don’t want that to happen to my brand new Xtreme 2. But so far, this speaker has been the best, I am very satisfied with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Returning my Xtreme 2 Having never purchased the previous Xtreme model, I was very excited to buy version 2. It sounds great! Very balanced sound with great bass response. My biggest problem is the max volume. We bought this speaker to play outside by our pool. The volume is maxed out and it’s unfortunately not loud enough. Reading other reviews and it appears I’m not alone in my volume complaints. It’s a shame because I really wanted to like this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker!! I bought this recently and i'm very happy that i did, great sound quality, great bass too, looks really great, big plus is that it very portable, also its very good that its waterproof, very handy for pool parties and the beach, also it once started rianing while i was using it so the the fact that it was waterproof helped a lot there too.Also its very very durable, this was very good because i droped it lots of times but it still plays perfectly.The battery is awesome lasts for a looong time without having to recharge it.Definitely a big upgrade the regular Xtreme. Overall a very good speaker would DEIFINITELY recomend to anyone.
