JBL has plenty of good Black Friday deals across its portable Bluetooth speakers range right now, but this is the best so far: a whopping £115 off the five-star JBL Xtreme 2. We tested this model back in 2019 and even with a newer model now out (Xtreme 3, also five stars), the Xtreme 2 remains a fantastic option if you want big, pleasing sound from a portable wireless speaker.

A rugged boombox with 15 hours of playtime, this Xtreme 2 manages to pack in impressively measured detail, clear mids and crisp treble alongside deep yet controlled bass. Snap it up at its lowest-ever price right now in green, blue and gun metal finishes.
JBL has form in making wonderfully durable, weather-proof Bluetooth speakers that are nicely portable - in various sizes and shapes. Even for a hefty boombox speaker like the JBL Xtreme 2, it's just about portable enough to chuck into your backpack. You also get a carry strap in this deal – perfect for taking your tunes with you wherever you are.
Every inch of the Xtreme 2 screams ‘big bass’, but the sound is far more measured and refined. Basslines are deep, but controlled and balanced, meshing perfectly with clear mids and crisp treble. You also get a decent 15-hour battery life, can use it as a powerbank for your smartphone, and will survive dunks in 1.5m of water thanks to IPX7 rating. There's no multi-room, voice control or any fancy features – this is a straightforward, easy-to-use Bluetooth speaker.
