About the product You can trust JBL Xtreme to bring the excitement wherever you need it - whether indoors or outdoors, poolside party or backyard barbeque - with its Splashproof fabric design that's available in black, blue, or red. It also features a noise and echo cancelling speakerphone for clear Conference calls, and JBL connect that can wirelessly link multiple JBL connect Enabled speakers together to amplify the listening experience. Just because it’s small doesn’t mean it has to sound that way. The SoundLink Mini Bluetooth speaker II delivers full sound with dramatically deeper lows than you’d expect from a speaker that fits in the palm of your hand. And because it’s wireless and ultra-compact, it’s easy to take Bose sound anywhere. The built-in speakerphone lets you take calls out loud with clear sound. And voice prompts make Bluetooth pairing easy. Plays unplugged for hours and can be charged from most USB power sources.
