Three new Bluetooth speakers have been revealed.
LG has announced the latest additions to its audio lineup. The upcoming PH2, PH3 and PH4 portable Bluetooth speakers will debut at IFA 2016 in Berlin next month.
"LG's new line of Bluetooth speakers combine powerful sound performance with compact, portable design," said Tim Alessi, senior director, product marketing for home entertainment at LG Electronics USA. "Understanding the busy lifestyles of many of today’s consumers, we sought to create a diverse lineup of audio products that deliver a seamless listening experience in any situation or setting."
The PH2 is a 2.5-watt portable, splash-proof speaker with a circular design. The device measures 3.8 inches x 1.5 inches and weighs less than half a pound. A 6-hour battery is included as well. Meanwhile, the PH3 is a 3-watt speaker with a sleek, candle-like design available in three colors with five different multicolored lighting modes. The device measures 3.5 inches x 4.9 inches and features an integrated 10-hour battery. Finally, the PH4 is a 16-watt, water resistant speaker with dual passive radiators and a cylindrical design. The unit measures 2.5 inches x 3.1 inches and also includes an integrated 10-hour battery.
All three portable speakers feature 360-degree omni-directional sound output with a Bass Boost feature. Likewise, the three models all include wireless Bluetooth support with advanced Multipoint connectivity, allowing the speakers to simultaneously connect with two different Bluetooth devices. In addition, each speaker also includes an auxiliary input port for connecting to older wired devices like a CD player or MP3 player.
Exact pricing has not been announced yet, but the new LG PH2, PH3 and PH4 portable Bluetooth speakers are set to launch in the US this fall.
