The portable Bluetooth speaker market is pretty cluttered these days, so it takes something special to stand out. In terms of design, the LG PL5 XBOOM certainly stands out, however, its sound quality isn’t quite up to the standard of the JBLs and UEs of the world.
LG PL5 XBOOM design
Made for parties.
By far our favourite thing about the LG PL5 XBOOM is the ring-shaped LED lights adorning the two passive radiators. We always thought light-up speakers were a bit gimmicky, but LG’s minimalistic take on the trend is really refreshing. It’s also fun to see the lights vibrating like crazy when the volume is cranked right up.

The 890g rubberised build is solid and feels like good quality. It’s a great shower or poolside companion, with an IPX5 water resistance rating allowing it to handle the odd splash or sprinkle. However, given many other speakers in this price bracket are submersible up to one metre for 30 minutes, we’d love to see a higher rating in future models.
