JBL Xtreme 3 review: Boshing out the bass

This large, near-cylindrical shape speaker is rugged (IP67 dust/water sealed) and has a clip-on carry handle for true portability. It's Bluetooth only. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The bass output -- down to 53Hz -- is deep and impactful thanks to the drivers and bass radiators on board. You can watch those '!' ends wobble away. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There are physical controls up top for on/off, Bluetooth pairing, volume up/down, play/pause, and a JBL app button for pairing multiple speakers. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The USB-C charging, USB-A power output, and 3.5mm jack are hidden behind a flap -- it's way too fiddly to get open, but at least it keeps those openings clean! (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Those metal rings mean you can clip-on/off the included carry handle. It's far from subtle, but then it is practical for shoulder carrying. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It's not the prettiest of speakers, sure, but this portable and rugged speaker sure does bang out the bass -- and that's why many will love its sound. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
