Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Awesome speaker After some research and watching and reading reviews I was hooked. I needed a speaker that would last long and sound awesome. I ride a bike and listening to music makes the bike ride more enjoyable. The bluetooth speakers I've owned in the past failed miserably. Some have long battery life but the sound quality suffers, or just the opposite, the sound is awesome but the battery life is terrible. This PK5 takes care of both and does it well. I know you can't get the true experience watching videos, the sound is just not the same. So I went to my local Best Buy and they had to display models to try out. I loved the sound these put out, the highs, the mids and the very rich thumping bass. I was very impressed. Way to go LG!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Love this bluetooth speaker. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because you cant control the lights. Other than that, the sound is nice. Really appreciate the type c connector. Used with poweramp and I recommend turning off equalizer and tone because the clear and bass button really does boost the sound. Glad this went on sale, was eyeing this since August.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have party favorite! Overall I really liked this speaker. Very clean and durable design. The sound was better than expected, with multiple options for adjustment. Clear vocals and great bass!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound Let me start with the sound quality first because that is the main reason why people buy speakers. To my surprise, the sound quality is way-way better than many speakers I had in past. You can feel the bass. It's super easy to install and operate. My 4 years old learned that in 1 day. Another good feature is the battery backup. It's amazing. I've tried that 3 times and it's definitely more than 15 hours. My 4-year-old accidentally spilled water on it when I was opening the box but as expected that didn't impact the speakers because they are water resistant. It's very easy to pair with Bluetooth and to connect with a 3.5 mm jack cable. The mood light can be turned on/off on this unit by pressing and holding the light bulb icon button for two seconds. The mood light synchronizes with your music. The only drawback is it doesn't have support for optical output cable. But that's okay because it's too much to ask from a Bluetooth speaker. Overall I'm very happy with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great speaker overall I took my time reviewing the LG PK5 speaker. I wanted to be able to provide the most honest review possible. This is an excellent speaker. I would say it's definitely premium, without the premium price. It's also pretty rare to find a quality speaker with LED lights. That's REALLY nice. Pros USB-C for easy charging sound responsive color LEDs Daisy chain multiple speakers Integrated handle(s) Waterproof Long lasting battery Low lows and high highs Skip and previous song from speaker Cons Not the most aesthetically pleasing LED on/off/change button shared with voice assistance button

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Speakers The product is great. It easily connected to my phone, laptop, and iPad. The sound quality was very good. It is cool to see the different colors while music plays. It also did well with enhancing the sound for videos. It was very easy to use and get started.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing build quality I really enjoyed the battery life. The Bluetooth connectivity is also very good, never had disruptions or signal breaks. It is very easy to use. I personally like the design (my wife didn't). I don't like the lights, but since we can disable it, its fine. I like the extra connection with P2 port. I think the sound is good and clear, although I was expecting the bass to be loader at lower volumes. Build quality is fantastic, it seems something that can resit to a lot, which is pretty impressive. I didn't like the fact that it needs a more powerful charger which is not included. If it requires something out of ordinary, like a 2A charger it should included, otherwise people can dislike the product due to a simple detail like this. I also had to read the manual carefully to figure that out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The little LG speaker that could This thing is actually pretty cool. The lights go with the music, the music can get very loud and the build construction on the thing is solid. I love that it uses a modern USB connector (USB-c) for charging. I like how you can easily adjust the bass and vocal modes to make whatever music is currently playing sound best. Overall this thing is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A speaker with big quality The PK5 PX5 Water Resistant Portable Bluetooth Speaker with Meridian Technology is by far the finest bluetooth speaker available

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG Px5 Water resistant portable speaker Worked easily with my Samsung galaxy s7 edge. The sound was crisp and clean. The speaker had high quality sound with a lot of bass. The battery life is amazing, I use it a lot in four days and the battery didn't drain as fast as I thought. The only thing I didn't like about it was how long it takes to charge, the first day I charge it took the whole day to get to 100%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Speaker Around! Pros: great audio quality and bass and good clear vocals nice lights that flash according to your music charges fast and lasts a long time on one charge looks like Johnny Number 5 from the short circuit 1980s movies works with all devices pretty much fast to connect to Bluetooth Cons: the volume either gets to high or too low so you got to decide do you want my music really loud or really low? the volume jump is big a bit heavy to carry it needs to be even more awesome than it already is! *highly recommended product!*

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Speaker I have tried a number of Bluetooth speakers, & honestly been pretty underwhelmed by most of them. When I got the LG PK5, I will admit that I actually had really high expectations as I am a fan of LG products, & for the most part, the PK5 lived up to those expectations. The speaker has a strong Bluetooth connection which allows you to move around pretty freely without issue. I think the sound quality is really good, especially while the "Clear Vocal" & "Enhanced Bass" are used. Placing the speaker in my living room, I can hear music no matter where I go in my single story house & can also hear it in my backyard & detached garage if my back door is left open. There may be slight distortion when the volume is at max, specifically when there is heavy bass & vocals at the same time. Overall, I would definitely recommend the PK5 but might try the PK7 to see if it provides a bit more volume & clarity with its dual tweeter setup, but I'm a former DJ that is probably being over picky.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better then Sony Not many BT speakers have Apt x, let alone aptx HD. Got them for that. The light d and brighten with the beat, and you can enhance the bass. Worked easily with my LG v30 and power amp. Sound is pretty decent. Better than the Sony offerings I have heard. I didn't hear them side by side with the UE, which is also like, but these are technologically superior. On a blind test, I was surprised how good they sounded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this speaker! Very loud and clear. Bass is sufficient enough but does not cause speaker to shake to the point where speaker moves. Love the design but would do without the light effects. Very easy to connect to bluetooth and no issues operating speaker. It is a plus that it is water resistant and I would suggest this speakers to others. Overall good speaker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy and has great sound quality The speaker seems very sturdy and connects with multiple phones very easily. It had a great sound quality and went from quiet to loud and back easily and smoothly. I liked the lights on it and that you could set different tones to play or just let it play randomly. I wasn't crazy that only Android phones could edit the colors that are emitted, as my main phone is an iPhone and so is my wife's, so I would like it if they would make the light editing process/app for iPhones in the future. I liked being able to change the sound quality to meet the songs that I'm playing, and it doesn't take too long to initially set up the speaker and pair it with your phone. I definitely look forward to using it at parties with friends or for daily usage at home.

I highly reccomend this speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unparalleled speaker! Ive purchased and used several different kinds of speakers, but never one as crystal clear as this. The PX5 speaker offers dynamic sound and almost concert hall feel to it. It felt so immersive to listen to music on this speaker in ways i thought werent possible. I used it poolside, in the bathroom while showering, while outside having a BBQ. The light show it offers is also amazing. This is by far my favorite speaker and I cant wait to show it off to my friends.

May I know the specification as to size and model of the battery other than 3.7V 5200mAh as indicated in the manual in case I need to replace it? Thank you.

Asked by: Sword3
3.7V 5200mAh batteries are typically the same size, much like when you look to purchase a 'C', 'D', 'AA' or 'AAA' battery. Regardless of brand or manufacturer, they all have the same dimensions. When you need to replace the battery, you can always measure it to verify its dimensions...^IFV

Will this speaker have any delay while playing a movie on my pc using bluetooth? I want to be able to watch movies on my laptop but use this speaker for the sound output because the speakers on my laptop suck.

Asked by: Discord
The delay is not in the LG XBOOM Go PK5 speaker or in any speaker. Bluetooth has latency and the only way to have Bluetooth without audio delay is using the APTX Bluetooth Protokoll which is now supported in Windows 10 if your hardware supports it. Standard aptX has latency that ranges all the way up to what A2DP (SBC codec) supports. There are three aptX codecs that have their own latency range. Only aptX LL (LOw Latency) supports a latency and reduces it down to 32 ms which is fast enough that our brains can't detect it. Few devices support this codec and this speaker supports APT-X HD and APT-X (SBC codec). If you're listening to music, latency doesn't matter and even if there is a fairly big delay between your laptop and the speaker, you probably won't notice it. But if you're watching video, you will notice the latency...^IFV

Would I need a power converter to charge this speaker outside the US?

Asked by: Keenazz
The LG IPX5 Water Resistant Portable Bluetooth Speaker w/ Meridian Technology, Model # PK5 has a 3.7V 5200mAh Lithium-Ion battery. The speaker has a DC IN 5V input which can be simply connected to the USB cable and AC Adapter for your phone that puts out a DC output of 5V. The AC Adapter is not supplied with the unit, but it is recommended that you use an AC adapter approved by LG Electronics (more than 1.8 A) with the speaker because of the danger of explosion. If you do not use a recommended adapter, charging is unavailable if less than 1.8 A or it the charging time may vary. So if using an LG phone adapter, make sure it has an amperage rating of more than 1.8 A...^IFV
