Balanced, in sound and designI mainly bought this because of the aptx-hd bluetooth and I spotted some selling for half price new. I wanted the aptx-hd so I could have the full audio quality (functionally speaking) wirelessly. But I mistakenly thought my phone also had aptx-hd. It supports it, lists it in te options, but doesn't actually have it lol. However, the sound is rather impressive even with regular old SBT bluetooth. And I am able to use AAC bluetooth, which is a step better.
The speaker leans considerably more towards sound quality than volume, which I consider a plus. If volume is more important, then you should be looking at larger speakers anyways. It has a clear balanced sound without the extras on. It's about 4 times larger than the average stereo bluetooth speaker, so it's a given that the bass was going to be better, but the quality and amount is above its weight class. I don't like the enhanced bass or clear vocals for music (high quality source). But I have found them handy for other audio uses. For example, I like putting a speaker in the window with a thunderstorm track, to help me fall asleep. The enhanced bass helps there.
There is a bluetooth music app for it, that allows you to control almost every aspect wirelessly, even the lights. It's simple enough to use and is tends to be pretty handy. It also has a playlist, which works well with the dual connection feature. Two devices can be connected at the same time, which helps keep people from wanting your phone or bugging you to play something. And the playlist allows both people control without being in a tug of war.
I never cared about the LED's before I bought it, and I usually have them off for longer battery life. But I've discovered they can be decent mood lighting, with the right music for the situation ^_^. They also handy for for emergency. The beat lighting doesn't sync up, but it's an option if you don't want the steady strobes.
The 18 hour (+/- 1 hour) battery is with bluetooth. Using an aux cord extends the battery life even longer. Not by as large a factor as other speakers I've had. But that's a non-issue, considering its a more powerful speaker that still has a longer battery life than most others.
Splashproof is nice for making things more worry free, so you don't stress about some surprise rain or random spill frying your nice speaker.
I can't think of anything else I've had (speakers or otherwise) of this quality and amount of features that also had this ease of use and that I didn't have to babysit.

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
