“What the hell is that thing,” was the general question that was mustered from my colleagues. “Well, let me show you,” was my genuinely excited response. The product in question is the $599 LG FH6 X-Boom Freestyler Bluetooth Speaker. LG has described the speaker as an all-in-one sound system and it’s not wrong. Let’s take a look at the features: • Two 8-inch bass woofers and two 1-inch tweeter drivers • USB port for playing your own MP3 and WMA file types • FM radio tuner • NFC Bluetooth for up to three devices at once (including an LG Smart TV) • Two huge, light-up speakers separated by a bright, flashy LED strip • AUX In connection • A pair of microphone inputs • A voice canceller • Key changing feature • Scratch pad • DJ effect sound pad The LG X-Boom Freestyler can be used vertically or horizontally.Source:Supplied On the surface, all of these features seem to be pretty impressive and they are — for the most part. The speaker has been designed for music with strong bass and it doesn’t disappoint, offering 600W of power. Or if you are really looking to annoy the neighbours, you can pair two speakers together for a bone-rattling 1200W of power. The system can be used vertically or horizontally, with the device adjusting the output to suit the orientation. As mentioned earlier, the boom box has Bluetooth connectivity for three devices, which removes the need to pair your smartphone every time you want to play something. Additionally, the LG MusicFlow app allows all three connected devices to take turns in playing the next song, which would be helpful in a party scenario. In addition to sound, the light-up speakers separated by a bright, flashy LED strip add a whole other dimension to your experience. These can be turned off or you could cycle through the 64 different light combinations that respond to the beat and rhythm. Up to three devices can be connected to the speaker via Bluetooth.Source:Supplied Further to the features above, the two mic inputs on the speaker allow it to be used as a karaoke machine. Impressively, a voice cancelling feature can lower the volume of the song you are trying to sing over, which can make the karaoke more authentic. And if
