Technical and Additional Features

This speaker features excellent sound quality thanks to Meridian audio technology and also the built-in woofer and tweeter. These are speakers dedicated to reproducing the low and high frequencies of the audio range. The output power is definitely good, of 30 watts RMS, which thus allows for very good power sound with very good diffusion. The output response with a range from 60 Hz to 20 KHz is also very good . It also has two passive radiators to boost and stabilize bass. Built-in Meridian Audio technology includes noise cancellation, so the sound becomes even sharper and distortion-free.

Speaking of connectivity, it uses Bluetooth 5.1 and that allows us to connect up to about 10 meters away, has a 3.5mm AUX input and also a USB type A input. We can connect up to 100 speakers to amplify sound, play music with voice commands, and share playlists via Bluetooth using the XBOOM app.

In terms of battery life, we are on a high level since the battery life is about 20 hours of playback. Clearly this parameter is calculated with an average volume of music, if we use the speaker at maximum volume we should expect a few hours less playback. Instead, the charging time is a bit long, and we will be able to reuse it after a charge of about 4 hours.

This case is rated IP55 for dust and water intrusion, meaning it can survive water splashes but not freshwater immersion. This speaker has a microphone but no built-in voice assistant. Allows you to answer and make hands-free calls directly from the speaker.

It is usually priced between €100 and €200, but given its high quality, it is still very good value for the mid- to high-end.

General Benefits

This product was created by LG to create a not-too-expensive product of sleek and modern lines with high audio quality and very good features. This speaker offers very good performance when it comes to audio quality thanks mainly to the tweeter, woofer and Meridian audio technology. We can also use the XBOOM app to help us connect with up to 100 units. It has quite a powerful sound, so we are unlikely to use it with the volume at maximum unless we want to throw a party. When we are not at a party, we can use it at any volume both indoors and outdoors.

The bass is quite powerful and well managed with the passive radiators, at this price range, however, it is not easy to find better. Lovers of deep, powerful bass may not be super satisfied; however, this speaker can offer a solid overall audio experience. Mainly this speaker excels in midrange sounds over lower frequencies but is also perfect for podcasts. This is probably due to Meridian technology, which cancels out noise and sound distortions. The highs are sharp and crisp, and the audio range offers a distinctly energetic soundstage.
