With the XBOOM 360, LG has introduced an interesting wireless portable Bluetooth speaker that is portable and can still offer a considerable output power of 120 watts. The highlight of the design is the integrated LED lighting, which, if desired, lights up in the “DJ effect” to match the music.
The LG XBOOM 360 RP4 is aimed at customers who are looking for a powerful party loud Bluetooth speaker that can be easily carried from room to room using the integrated handle. The sound should be emitted evenly in all directions from the cylindrical housing so that users have maximum freedom when positioning the loudspeaker.
The wireless portable Bluetooth speaker is quite impressive because LG has installed a 130-millimeter glass fiber woofer and a 25-millimeter titanium tweeter, which are operated on a 120-watt amplifier. Full power is only available when connected to the mains, but the 29 Wh battery also allows ten hours of music playback away from the mains.
Music can be played either via USB, via AUX, or via Bluetooth, but LG completely dispenses with WLAN, so that Apple AirPlay and Google Chromecast Audio are not supported. The most exciting design accent is the integrated LED lighting, which can be adapted to your own wishes via the associated smartphone app, for example, to match the color to the music.

Recently, Sony has also made available its new Glass Sound Speaker LSPX-S3, a product that combines the functions of soft ambient lighting with that of a speaker. The Sony LSPX-S3 is the third iteration of the Glass Sound Speaker, as indicated by the suffix “3”.
