In the market for a new wireless speaker? Even if you already have a few lying around in your home, there’s always room for one more especially when it is portable and small enough to fit into any space in your home. These are also extremely handy in giving your audio a boost when you’ve lost the fight for the TV, and have to stream your Netflix show on a tablet or a laptop!
Here’s a closer look at three newly-released wireless speakers that you can consider getting for your home.
HUAWEI SOUND X
Co-designed with French audio brand Devialet, the Huawei Sound X ($498) is the first-ever dual-subwoofer Hi-Fi speaker that uses your Wi-Fi, instead of Bluetooth, to connect to your device. Equipped with Devialet’s patented signal-processing SAM (Speaker Active Matching) technology, which tailors the sound to the characteristics of the speakers, the Sound X will be able to reproduce sound signals in real-time — bringing you 360-degrees of high fidelity audio as it was meant to be heard.
The Sound X also includes Devialet’s iconic Push-Push Acoustic Design, which ensures you enjoy clear, nuanced sound even at the highest volume. As most traditional speaker units tend to shake and lose quality at high volumes, the Huawei Sound X is built with symmetrical dual subwoofers that cancel out the vibrations of the other to suppress audio distortion at any volume.
The Marshall Emberton ($249) is a compact, portable speaker featuring the loud and vibrant, signature sound that only Marshall can deliver. Built with True Stereophonic, Marshall’s unique form of multi-directional sound, you can expect to hear an absolute 360-degree sound that is loud enough for you to hear from another spot in the house.
Despite its small size, the Emberton is able to deliver 20+ hours of portable playtime on a single charge. The battery indicator on the top of the speaker makes it easy for you to keep an eye on the battery level and if you ever run out of juice, all you’ll need to do is quick charge the Emberton for 20 minutes to get five hours of playtime.
LG XBOOM GO PL5
As part of the all-new LG XBOOM Go PL portable Bluetooth speakers series, the PL5 ($209) boasts a well-balanced sound, enhanced usability and a stylish new design. Equipped with Meridian’s advanced sound technology, the PL5 is able to deliver high-quality sound with deep bass, rich treble and clear vocals.
The PL5 is also able to create a wider sound stage with its Dual Action Bass feature that creates dynamic bass that you can feel and hear, as well as amplify the sound power with the SoundBoost mode. The speaker supports hands-free functionality, voice commands and multi-phone pairing, and is rated IPX5, making it water-resistant and safe from sprays and water splashes.
The LG XBOOM Go PL5 is available at $209 from Best Denki, Challenger, COURTS, Harvey Norman, NTUC, and Popular.
