LG has updated the portable variants of its XBOOM speaker line-up. These new PL7, PL5 and PL2 models feature an equally renewed design that incorporates Meridian technology for their audio clarity. They can also be controlled via an iOS or Android app and respond to voice commands.

LG has launched the successors to the LG XBOOM Go PK series of wireless speakers. They feature "passive radiators to pump out dynamic bass and bold beats", as well as dual tweeters in the top-end variant. They are also tuned by the OEM's audio partner Meridian.

The Go PLs also feature their maker's Dual Play function, which allows 2 of these new devices to act in stereo. They also have an IPX5 rating, which means they can hold their own in outdoor settings. These wireless speakers are also have Multi-Color Lighting strips, albeit in the PL7 and PL5 only.

These new audio devices also have batteries rated for up to 24 hours of playback (under certain conditions and dependent on the model in question). The new XBOOM Go PL line is available from now from LG's website and through its official distributors. They are set at US$59, $129, and $179 for the PL2, PL5 and PL7 respectively.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
