DISAPPOINTED

Blizerd 11/29/2020

I got this as a gift for buying a lg tv. The divine is promesing with great features but one of the main features is the one that is giving me a horrible problem. Whenever I try the Bluetooth surround sound feature while connected to my playstation 5 the speaker makes a high pitch buzzing sound that drives me crazy. I cant find a way to fix the issue. Otherwise it sounds great

Great speaker and versatile too

Bulltheman 11/20/2020

I was super excited when my wife asked my thoughts on buying this speaker. She ordered the speaker and when it arrived I was impressed with how quickly it was up and running. This speaker has great sound and is easy to use anywhere. The battery life is good and the unit itself is a size that makes it wonderful to use in so many places. My wife was able to purchase this at a discounted price in exchange for our honest opinions. I would pay way more than what we were able to get the unit for. It is quality and so worth it.

Solid Speaker -- Just needs more Bass

psilva_xt 11/16/2020

As far as a review I believe speakers are relatively simple so Ill break it into Pros and Cons. Pros: Nice size and weight The material feels and looks nice Lights can go with music or have the behavior edited in the XBOOM app Clear highs with solid mids great for vocal-based songs such as rock hip-hop pop etc. Water resistance and sealing Long Battery Cons: Bass is here but it isnt very powerful. This limits it a bit for electronic-based music. Due to the lack of solid bass the sounds impact is taken away a bit. For the price the general sound quality is great for a bluetooth speaker this size. If LG can add a bit more bass without compromising the rest of the sound it would be perfect. To be clear there is bass but just the higher octave which covers the rest of the sound. The low end is missing a bit. My use has mostly indoors with a bit of outside and volume has been great. Connecting and pairing to Bluetooth is also very easy and simple. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

Awesome little portable speaker

christine184 10/30/2020

My LG XBOOM PL5 speaker sounds absolutely amazing For such a small speaker it has a huge sound. The bass sounds wonderful I also love the lights that flash along with the music amp that I am able to change their color with the mobile app. The app is so handy and is so great for making playlists for different moods/occasions. I cannot say enough great things about this speaker. I went on a weekend camping trip recently with some friends and my XBOOM speaker was a big focal point for us at night to listen to music and have the light show to enjoy. I absolutely recommend this speaker to anyone looking for speaker with excellent portability and amazing sound. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review

Good speaker for the size

chtulu21 10/23/2020

For the size of the speaker it packs quite the punch. Ive been using the portable speaker with my cell phone via Bluetooth and portable FM radio via the auxiliary port. Both items work great with the speaker and the sound is good for the size of the speaker. Speaker is easy to charge and you can carry it with you wherever you go. The lights are a nice addition but I dont usually use them so I turn them off. A bonus is the LG XBoom app you can download from the Google Play Store or Apple Store to control the speaker this makes it easier to set it up compared to doing everything on the speaker. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

The PL5 is good to Go

roberttheinsider 10/23/2020

I have been using the LG XBOOM Go PL5 for about 3 weeks now and I am very impressed with it. The build quality is apparent as soon as you unbox it. It has a good solid weight to it without feeling too heavy to be portable. It is a great size for carrying around the house and for taking on adventures when you leave home. The sound quality is very good as well and it sounds like a bigger speaker than it is. The base is impressive in such a small package and the sound does not get distored at higher volumes. The battery performance is also impressive. I have used it almost every day for about 3 weeks and still have not had to recharge it. The specifications say it will last 18 hours on a charge and I wouldnt be surprised if it lasts longer than that. The controls are very straightforward and easy to use. It paired to my phone very quickly using Bluetooth and I was able to control everything from my phone. The dedicated iOS application works well went it connects with the speaker but sometimes it shows as disconnected even when the speaker is connected and streaming music. The additional controls on the speaker for changing the lighting options work well and let you cycle through different color options and patterns. To preserve the battery I dont have the lights on very often. I chose the PL5 instead of the PL7 or PL2 because I wanted a speaker that would be easy to move around while providing good audio quality and battery performance. I think the PL5 meets those needs perfectly. It is very portable sounds great and the battery is better than expected. I would highly recommend this if you are looking for a good quality portable Bluetooth speaker with impressive sound. I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest review.

Nice bluetooth speaker with a few bugs

Jenrigperry 10/23/2020

There are many things that I enjoy about this speaker. I adore the size and shape of the speaker. I especially love that it is water resistant. We totally love using this pool side. The sound that this speaker produces is that I would expect of a far larger higher quality speaker. Very impressed there. The lights feature is cool at night if youre having a party of just for a nice vibe. On the down side the speaker comes with a charging cable but no AC adapter. My biggest issue is the speaker doesnt seem to charge completely. It shows it is charging with a red light visible but it never gets to fully charged. I received this product at a reduced cost in exchange for my honest opinions and to write a review.

bbybby 10/21/2020

I got my PL5 as a free compliment of the 77CX OLED TV. Heres a list of things that should be improved. 1. The Auto Power Mgt feature does not work. I listen to my music when I go to bed. Set a timer on my music player to 30Min. When I wake up next day the PL5 is still on. I updated its firmware to the latest and still APM does not work. 2. The buttons are simply flat no indention or emboss you cannot feel them. Only the volume up has a very tiny indention. Would be great to just feel them to skip or adjust. 3. The passive radiator design on its sides prevents you from using it when inside your backpack or bag as it will rattle anything that touches it. 4. Theres no adjustment to dim the lights. it pulses on off even when you set it to just Beat. 5. Theres always 3 white tiny lights when its on. 2 should be enough for power and sound boost. or 1 would be best only for power. 6. The materials or silicon rubber used for the passive radiator are kind of hard. Compared to other passive radiators whos materials are supple. It restricts the full movement of the radiator plates thereby causing it to loss the lower frequency. 7. The Serial No. is not printed on the unit only in the box.

Big sound in a small package

armstjr 10/14/2020

I have had a few weeks to run the PL5 XBoom Go through the gauntlet. I have to say coming into it I thought its size would keep it from really rocking like bigger Bluetooth speakers. Im happy to say it far exceeded my expectations. The size is perfect for taking it wherever you want. The Meridian Audio Technology really helps cut down on high volume distortion you normally get from other portable speakers. The light up passive radiators on each end that move in and out with the bass of the music are cool. You can use the XBoom app to customize the led lights to your personal preference. I also like the fact it is IPX5 rated in case I get caught out in some rain or it gets splashed on at the pool. The 18 hours of battery life keeps me from having to worry about a charger when I go out with it. Anyone looking for a great sounding speaker that is the perfect portable size can not go wrong with the LG PL5 XBoom Go Bluetooth speaker.

The Sound of Boom

glenn113 10/2/2020

I have been using the speaker for a week now. It works very well. First you need to download the LG app for the speaker. Then it connected right away to the bluetooth on my phone. This is a big deal because I have had other speakers that would always have trouble connecting. The sound is very good for a speaker this small. I like that it is portable and the lighting sets this speaker apart from others on the market. The lighting is multiple colors and beats to the music. It looks really cool in the dark. The only drawback I found is that it has no carrying case included that would be nice to keep it from getting scratched up.

Best Option for Surround Sound for GX or CX

ccosborne3 9/23/2020

I received a free one of these when I purchased a 65 GX OLED TV. I tried out several sound bar alternatives including the Sonos Arc and the LG LG SN11RG and neither worked out for different reasons. On a lark I ordered another PL5 off Ebay to try the surround sound. It worked great and when working in tandem with the TVs internal speakers it produces near Dolby Atmos sound surprisingly good. In fact it sounded better than either of the other options and was 1/7th of the price. If your having issues getting something good going with your tv give it a shot.

Fantastic in every way

Michelez1 8/25/2020

I received this as a promotion for purchasing my LG OLED Smart TV. It was easy to pair and I was listening to my playlist in no time. Its impressive how much sound this small compact box produces. Even with it turned on low music plays so full and clear. Im looking forward to listening with my wireless Ear Buds. The XBOOM Go PL5 can also be plugged into your TV if compatible. Its quick to charge and the outer shell is covered with a nonslip material that is water resistant and makes it easy to hold on to. Thank you LG for giving me the opportunity to try this. I Love it
