LG packs Meridian Audio's technology into their latest XBOOM Go PL portable party speakers

LG XBOOM Go PL7.

LG brings three new feature-filled XBOOM Go PL semi-portable wireless speakers that are designed to breathe life into any party. Talk about flashy!

The LG XBOOM Go PL7, PL5, and PL2 are portable Bluetooth speakers packed with audio technology from Meridian. In a nutshell, these speakers combine party-friendly design, dual passive radiators, compact portability, and long-lasting battery life into a single form factor. Essentially, that's a modern-day boombox by LG.

LG XBOOM Go PL7.

The XBOOM Go PL7, which is the top-shelf variant in this product series, has an output of 30W. Inside its 1.46kg body are dual tweeters and two 2.3-inch woofers tucked within. That's because it packs a whopping 24-hour battery life.

LG XBOOM Go PL5.

The mainstream variant, XBOOM Go PL5, is mostly similar to the flagship model, except that it's more portable with its 0.62kg weight. While it shares the same two-channel configuration, it consumes 20W power instead, and it packs a pair of smaller 1.75-inch woofers. The reduction in driver size and power consumption still makes the XBOOM Go PL5 capable of lasting up to 18 hours for playback.

LG XBOOM Go PL2.

There's also the ultra-portable, stripped-down version called the XBOOM Go PL2, at just 0.35kg. It uses a single-channel configuration and consumes just 5W. Despite the lightness, this version still comes with one 1.75-inch woofer, making it a viable, ultra-portable alternative for party music on the go.

The three XBOOM Go PL speakers also have IPX5-certified water resistance, voice command compatibility with Siri and Google Assistant, and the handy Wireless Party Link feature that daisy-chains multiple XBOOM Go PL speakers to multiply sound output. For the PL7 and PL5 models, they also come with Multi Colour Lighting to heighten their listeners' moods.

The XBOOM Go PL7, PL5, and PL2 are already retailing at S$299, S$209, and S$109 respectively. They can be found at authorised retailers such as Best Denki, Challenger, Courts, Harvey Norman, NTUC, and Popular. It's not listed on the official LG store at Lazada as of writing, but do keep your eyes peeled as they make they way around town.
