The JBL Xtreme 3 boasts two 20-millimeter tweeters and two 70-mm woofers. The speakers pack a hell of a punch while gaming and jamming out to music. You can connect the speaker to your phone via the JBL Portable app. However, the app can be kind of a pain to connect to.

Cons
  • No audio settings

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
On tracks with intense sub-bass content, the Xtreme 3 delivers powerful low-frequency depth. At top volume levels, the DSP prevents distortion by thinning the bass out a bit. An IP67 rating means you can take the speaker anywhere, and the removable strap makes it easy to do so.

Pros
  • Powerful bass depth
  • Powerful passive radiators
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No wireless charging
  • No built-in EQ

Reviewers from rtings have found the following***:
The JBL Xtreme 3 has a warm sound profile with a neutral mid-range. It struggles to reproduce low-bass and its treble is underemphasized. While it can get fairly loud, there are compression artifacts at max volume. It doesn't support multi-room either, so you can't play podcasts in different rooms.

  • Long-lasting battery life
  • Well-built and portable design
  • Very portable design with long-lasting batteries
  • Good build quality and durable design with Long-lasting Battery life.

The JBL Xtreme 3 is a waterproof, waterproof Bluetooth speaker. It has two 25W woofers and 2 25W tweeters, up from the 20W in the Xtremes 2. It's not as big or as expensive as the JBL PartyBox or Boombox speakers. JBL's PartyBoost lets you pair two speakers together to double up on the audio.

Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following***:
The JBL Xtreme 3 has fewer features than its predecessor. There’s no Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri support, no EQ and no Wi-Fi. You do get a companion app, but there isn’t an awful lot in it. Bass is powerful but not boomy, and there's solid separation throughout the sound.

Pros
  • Powerful bass
  • Attractive design
  • Easy to use
Cons
  • No Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri support
  • No Wi-Fi

Sentiment Score 88%
Reviewers from whathifi have found the following***:
The Xtreme 3 boasts 100W of total power, which is up from the 80W of its predecessor. Bluetooth 5.1 is supported and you can have two devices connected at once so people can take it in turns to play their tunes. Bassheads should be more than satisfied with the healthy amount of bass that's conjured up.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Excellent sound quality
  • Solid battery life
Cons
  • No smart functionality
