On its own even with the enhanced bass and clear vocal enabled, the sound is only a little above average, especially the high end. EQ is a must to get close to audiophile quality out of this speaker. I have an LG G6 phone which boasts aptX HD technology, and its a perfect fit with this speaker. Using the Poweramp app from the Play Store and some adjustments in the EQ this thing is just short of incredible! Deep, pounding bass, smooth, tight mids and amazingly crisp highs can be easily achieved with a little tweaking of the EQ. Granted, most of the music on my phone is in FLAC lossless format, some of it even hi-res (plays up to 24 bit 192k flawlessly), but even MP3s sound amazing. I really cant say enough good things about the sound of this speaker sound-wise, but the light show feature is another matter.

The beat lighting feature on this speaker is pretty much useless. When enabled, its always on and pulsing even without music playing, and even when music IS playing, its very rarely in time with the music. Its really an unbelievably poorly executed feature, and you will quickly learn to not use it at all. I think its just a hey, check this out! kind of thing, but realistically it just doesnt work. Plus you will save on battery life without it.

Also, there is a suggested Music Flow app for this speaker, but Ive found that its only usefulness is to give the battery level of the speaker. Its a cheesy music app and also has controls for the beat lighting, but again, youll probably find youll never use the beat lighting, and the music app doesnt include an EQ, so its no match against Poweramp. Plus, when you close out of the app, it disconnects the speaker from Bluetooth. Quite uncalled for, especially if you may be using the speaker for the speakerphone feature.

All in all I couldnt be happier with this. Its well worth the money, provided you have the proper equipment to take advantage of its advanced sound quality features.

Now I work in construction/labor. I had a UE megaboom which unfortunately met its demise recently therefore I bought this guy.

Look this thing is great. The sound is absolutely phenomenal. Clarity and quality. If I were in an office or medium sized room all day I would hands down get one of these.

But I am not. I work outside normally with multiple people and near roads so volume is a big deal over clarity. So that is where this speaker lacks. When there is troves of loud background noises this speaker doesnt cut it.

If you want clarity and HD quality sound WITHIN a confined space(office, gym, etc) BUY THIS.

I will be returning to get a speaker with more volume.

I cannot attest to the battery as Ive owned this speaker for 2 days but I havent charged it since I got it and battery is still at 42%, has been on running for 14-16 hours.

This Speaker Is Worth The Money. Bass Is Punchy Without The Use Of An EQ. Listened To Some Loud Obnoxious Dubstep Songs And Immediately Became Dumbfounded On How Clear And Deep The Sound Was. Well Worth Every Penny.

All reviews seem to be paid reviews. Quality is okay but volume is basically non-exsistant. This is for like an office environment and not a shop. Maybe invest less in stupid lighting and focus on the speaker being a speaker. I replaced it with “wonder boom ultimate ear” speakers. Much more inexpensive which were better on all audio fronts (not water proof and no lighting). I’d recommend those before this.

I purchased two of these speakers to mate with my new LG OLED 55-inch television set, which advertises that you can hook up two blue tooth speakers for surround sound. As I have noted in my detailed review of the television set, you cant. The television appears to have a bug in its software that prevents you from hooking up two speakers (you can hook up one only) and the hooked up speaker can barely be heard at full volume. It isnt the speakers fault, but I have $200 worth of speakers, one of which just sits unused next to the cabinet waiting on the computer scientists at LG to figure out the solution. My wife takes the other out to the pool every day and plays music off her phone while swimming. I havent commented on battery life because that one speaker has yet to run down from its first charge.

7/20/2020 Update

LG updated the television software today. The surround sound is now operating properly. The speakers are as good as they are advertised to be. While syncing the speaker we have been using, I noted that the power light was blinking, indicating that it was time for a recharge. The speaker lasted in light use for more than a month.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buen sonido.

Reviewed in Mexico on November 19, 2020

Style: 2020 XBOOM Portable Speaker- Black (PL7)Verified Purchase

La calidad de sonido es excelente, alcanza un buen volumen para el tamaño y la duración de batería es muy buena, es muy practica de llevar a todos lados. Al ser el modelo más grande de LG (PL7) hubiera esperado un desempeño superior al de Sony SRS-XB32.

Pros:
Conectividad Bluetooth 5.0
Duración batería
Calidad de audio.
Carga mediante USB tipo C
Entrada Aux

Contras:
Radiadores pasivos laterales están muy expuestos por lo que hay que tener cuidado para no dañarlos.
La base donde apoya es muy pequeña por lo que si empujas la bocina puede rodar.
No es sumergible.

4.0 out of 5 stars No me encantó...

No es un mal producto, pero le daré 4 estrellas y de hecho lo voy a devolver ya que la firma de sonido no me encanto... Aunque maneja bien los bajos, no es lo que esperaba y la nitidez no es muy buena.
Con ciertas canciones debo admitir que suena genial, pero en general hay algo que no me termina de convencer.
Aunque tiene opciones de ecualización, no pude hacerla sonar bien, creo que los medios son su punto débil.
Y por último, lo que menos me gustó es el volumen máximo.
La compare lado a lado con la logitech megaboom version 2 y, aunque los bajos son mejores definitivamente no vale la pena el cambio.... Algo que vale mucho la pena es la batería, pero siendo honesto, sale mas barato comprar una batería de 20000 mAh externa si ya tienes alguna bocina.

4.0 out of 5 stars Muy buena bocina para el precio y una pequeña comparación.

Muy buen produto aun que sinceramente esperaba un mejor sonido pero con mover un poco el ecualizador queda perfecto..
Tiene una buena calidad de sonido no como para romper ventanas pero para una fiesta improvisada queda bastante bien..
Los efectos de luces quedan bastante bien y si reacciona bien a el sonido pero hace falta que sea mas personalizable ya que solo tiene 4 efectos y el personalizable solo tiene 6 colores que puedes cambiar..
Pero fuera de eso es una buena bocina.

Lo estuve comparando con el sonido de una bocina Echo de 3ra generacion y todo el sonido general es bueno, el Echo se siente mas los bajos.. pero no tienen tanta profundidad como el PL7, en resumen tiene mejor y mas sonido que el Echo..
Esta prueba fue sin activar el sound boost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Audio no tan balanceado.

Reviewed in Mexico on June 10, 2021

Style: 2020 XBOOM Portable Speaker- Black (PL7)Verified Purchase

Es muy buen producto con bastante potencia pero LG especifica que tiene un audio balanceado y para mi gusto y oido tiene mucho bajo y esto no favorece mucho mucho a la hora de escuchar rock, metal y ese tipo de música que requiere de un sonido más balanceado.

Claro, si usas un reproductor como Poweramp esto puede ser arreglado pero si hay que estar jugando un buen rato con el equalizador. Aún así hay canciones en las que el bajo suena más fuerte de lo esperado.
