Design

1.volume

958.3cm³

4350.28cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
3.control panel placed on a device
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
6.is dustproof and water-resistant
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
7.has a detachable cable
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
8.weight

454g

2.11kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
9.width

74mm

283mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Sound quality

1.has stereo speakers
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.has a subwoofer
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
Devices with a subwoofer have a higher quality, deeper bass.
4.Has a passive radiator
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
5.highest frequency

20000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
Signal-to-noise ratio is a measure that compares the level of a desired signal (meaningful information) to the level of background noise (unwanted signal), the bigger the less perceived noise.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.

Power

1.has a rechargeable battery
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
2.has a battery level indicator
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
3.battery power

6000mAh

10000mAh

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.

Connectivity

1.has an AUX input
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
An auxiliary input allows you to play other audio sources by connecting them through a simple audio connection like a 3.5mm jack, i.e for MP3 or portable DVD/CD player.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.has a 3.5mm male connector
JBL Charge
JBL Xtreme
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
