JBL On Beat Xtreme Bluetooth Speaker Review

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The JBL On Beat Xtreme speaker dock is designed to work with Apple iOs devices, such as the popular iPhone smartphone and iPad tablet. Despite the Apple focus, the On Beat Xtreme will also work with any Bluetooth-enabled device, including computers, tablets and many newer smartphones.

Apple devices are well catered for, with a rotating connector that holds devices firmly in place. The flexible port allows your iOs device to be oriented in landscape or portrait style, depending on personal preference or app design. The build quality is excellent, befitting the slightly higher price point of this system. (Save over £150 – Buy Now).

JBL have paid attention to the design of the On Beat Xtreme, with a design based around a stylised X. The materials are of high quality and the wireless Bluetooth speaker looks professional and stylish.

The sound quality of the JBL On Beat Xtreme doesn’t disappoint, with their proprietary speaker technology included. Inside the attractive casing are JBL Ridge tweeters and JBL Atlas woofers, both featuring computer-optimised DSP equalisation to deliver the best possible sound in a portable system.

Bundled with the JBL On Beat Xtreme is an RF remote that provides full control of the system features and media playback. In line with its dock design, the system charges any docked device when it’s plugged into AC power via the included cable. For advanced users, the dock also features a composite video-out port, allowing it to be linked to a display for media playback.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Audio professionals

Founded during the early days of cinema, JBL has been a market leader in professional and home audio environments ever since. The JBL range of speakers and accessories features in recording studios, sound installations, touring rigs and cinemas worldwide, and JBL automotive audio speakers have also been fitted in high-end Ford and Toyota cars. JBL’s home audio products similarly benefit from this accumulated audio expertise.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Check Price on Amazon” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2Ptp9n8||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”294px”][vc_single_image image=”1579″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

High-quality hardware

The JBL On Beat Xtreme review model looks neat and deceptively tame at first glance. However, its two 3.5-inch JBL Atlas woofers, supplemented by a pair of 0.75-inch JBL Ridge tweeters, suggest that with 30 watts of amplification available to each speaker driver alongside computer-regulated DSP equalisation, there is actually plenty of audio muscle available. JBL promise minimal distortion and ‘crystal-clear high-output sound’ from this layout, which has an impressive frequency-response rating of 20Hz – 20KHz.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Check Price on Amazon” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2Ptp9n8||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”85px”][vc_single_image image=”1584″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Hi-Fi performance

Designed and equipped for high-quality audio performance, the JBL On Beat Xtreme review model does not disappoint. The open, ambient sound is large, loud and exciting – though still accurate – with clear and vibrant vocals, ultra-tight bass-lines and kick drum pulses, together with a whole host of percussion detailing. The On Beat Xtreme is guaranteed to squeeze every scrap of audio information from your favourite tracks.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Check Price on Amazon” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2Ptp9n8||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”81px”][vc_single_image image=”1587″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

JBL On Beat User review

I’ve been looking for a good speaker dock for my iPad since buying it 3 months ago, but just couldn’t find a high quality system. That’s until I found the JBL On Beat Xtreme. I set it up in my home office and it’s perfect for streaming podcasts, music and even videos through the built-in video out port. The sound quality needs to be mentioned; it’s surprisingly good for such a small system. I since found out that the wireless Bluetooth speaker uses special JBL speakers, and that explains the better than average sound.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Check Price on Amazon” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Famzn.to%2F2Ptp9n8||target:%20_blank|”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_empty_space height=”100px”][vc_single_image image=”1588″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
