JBL Xtreme 2 vs Vifa Oslo (2016)

Analysis:

The JBL Xtreme 2 is a great choice for people with a $340 budget. The Vifa Oslo (2016), however, is merely decent when compared to its direct competitors.

The JBL Xtreme 2 was loved by reviewers at Wirecutter (NYTimes), a highly trusted source that performs reliable in-depth testing. It did great in its "The Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker" roundup where it was named its "Upgrade pick", which, in itself, makes it a product worth considering.

Taking a look at the Vifa Oslo (2016), it got featured in roundups from two reliable sources that conduct their own testing - PCmag and Wirecutter (NYTimes) - but it fell short of earning a top spot in either.

Sources that tested and scored both products, like TechHive and PCmag, haven't shown a preference for either in their reviews.

We also examined the available data to learn which sources liked these two Portable Bluetooth Speakers best and found that the JBL Xtreme 2 managed to get its highest, 10, review score from What Hi-Fi?, whereas the Vifa Oslo (2016) got its best rating from TechHive - 8.

Finally, we also compared their review scores to the rest of their competition - the JBL Xtreme 2 earned an average review score of 8.4 out of 10 points and the Vifa Oslo (2016) received an average of 8.0, compared to the 7.6 average of Portable Bluetooth Speakers in general.
