The audio controls on the LG XBoom Go PK7 are unique. There is a clear vocals button that switches the focus clearly to ensure that Leonard Cohen’s baritone stands out from all the din around it. And for the lovers of Bollywood music there an enhanced bass mode too.
The audio quality is quite impressive. LG has leaned on UK’s Meridian to tune the speaker for high-resolution audio. So the audio profile is rich and clear, with no distortion even at high volumes as you would be inclined to play at parties.
With all types of music I played on the speaker, the experience was quite good. I streamed music from the iPhone and even used it alongside an Echo Input to get Alexa on the speaker. At no point was I disappointed.
Even without the Alexa, the PK7 is smart on its own and can connect with the smart assistant on your phone to act on voice commands. However, I am not a big fan of the idea as I might be closer to the phone than the speaker to touch a button and ask for something.
With iOS, the button activates Siri and works without any set up at all. Also, the speaker buttons can control the phone too.
Given that this is a large speaker, it also has a large battery than playback at full volume for well over 18 hours. So if you are on a weekend trip you can easily keep the adapter at home.
The LG XBoom Go PK7 is a good Bluetooth speaker to bring home, especially if you are the sort who likes to party and won’t mind taking your music out wherever you go.
At Rs 22,990, the LG XBoom Go PK7 might appear a bit expensive, but there are online deals that will let you own this for less. The only scary part is the two Wall-E like an eye staring at you all the time. If you think the PK7 is beyond your budget, you can also opt for the smaller PK5 priced Rs 14,990 and the PK3 at Rs 10,990.
