LG’s Latest XBoom Go PL Bluetooth Speakers Have Passive Radiators


If you are in the market for some new Bluetooth speakers, LG just released the XBoom Go PL lineup for your consideration. The new speakers are tuned by HiFi brand Meridian with a “sound boost” EQ mode for clear vocals and minimal distortion. The PL7 and PL5 models come with passive radiators for improved bass delivery.

The PL7 can go for up to 24 hours on a charge, while the PL5 can run for 18 hours and the PL2 for 10 hours. The speaker is also water-resistant, if that a deal-breaker for you. The higher-end PL7 and PL5 models come with multi-colored lights that pulse to the beat of the music.

LG notes that all models come with LG’s Dual Play option that lets you create stereo sound using two LG speakers together. They can also be paired with any LG TV over Bluetooth for rear stereo or surround sound. The XBoom Go speakers come with voice command hotkey to control what’s playing on your XBOOM Go using just your voice (you’ll need to use your phone’s assistant to give it commands to play—or skip or pause). They’re now available on Amazon and other online retailers, with the PL7 retailing for $179, the PL5 at $129, and the PL2 priced at $59.
