Premium audio powered by Meridian technology combines with unique design and lighting features to deliver a high-quality and portable listening experience

SYDNEY, 8th September 2020 – LG Electronics Australia (LG) today announced the arrival of the latest addition to its XBOOM Go portable Bluetooth speaker line-up, the LG XBOOM Go PL Series (models PL7, PL5 and PL2), available now in select retailers. The range is a perfect solution for premium audio on-the-go, complete with Meridian Audio technology, compact and splash-proof design, seamless connectivity and a battery life of up to 24 hours (PL7).1

LG has once again teamed up with Meridian Audio, the UK-based pioneers of high-fidelity audio, to deliver enhanced bass, clear vocals and rich treble in the company’s portable speaker range this year. The high-quality bass is driven by the inclusion of Dual Action Bass (PL7 and PL5), which uses passive radiators to pump out dynamic bass and immersive beats that users can both feel and hear.

Complementing the enhanced audio quality and adding an element of visual excitement for a group listening experience, the LG XBOOM Go PL speakers include a Multi-Colour Lighting feature (PL7, PL5). This feature employs a three-step process to detect tempo based on soundwaves, which then produces pulses of LED lighting in sync with the speed and beat of the song.

The XBOOM Go PL line-up further optimises the party experience through the Dual Play feature (PL7, PL5), which allows two of the same LG speakers to be connected at once, creating an even more immersive sound experience. What’s more? Users can connect two of the same LG XBOOM Go PL products (PL7, PL5), to act as rear channel speakers, with a compatible 2020 LG TV for an amplified viewing experience. 

Furthermore, the line-up will allow users to control the speaker from a mobile device via the LG XBOOM Bluetooth app2 and pair two devices simultaneously to control a playlist without interruption.  Meanwhile, users can manage the audio connection, lighting effects, playlists, equaliser and more via the app with just a few clicks.

Finally, for added peace of mind, the IPX5 rated PL series is splash-proof. 4 The design will come in handy in settings such as outdoor meals and adventures. The compact design and up to 24-hour battery life (PL7) makes it ideal for on-the-go use, as well as at home.2

“LG Australia is passionate about providing consumers with entertainment experiences – even outside the home. Whether it’s a backyard BBQ, visit to the beach or park picnic, this summer Australians can experience a premium listening experience with the XBOOM Go portable speaker range both at home and on-the-go,” said Tony Brown, Marketing Manager for Home Entertainment at LG Electronics Australia. “Through our continued partnership with Meridian Audio, we’re pleased to offer Australians high-quality audio in a multi-functional range of speakers.”
