LG unveiled a cache of Bluetooth speakers that cover the two extremes of leisure - a cozy, candle-lit home and the wet outdoors. The speakers are labeled PH1 through PH4, but their shapes are what really sets them apart.
The PH2 and PH4 are meant for the outdoors - campouts, poolside barbecues and so on. They have a strap so you can secure them to your backpack and are rain and splash resistant. The speakers deliver 360° omnidirectional sound that has some meat to it thanks to the bass boost.
The puck-shaped PH2 offers 6 hours of battery life, while the columnar PH4 can last 10 hours. The PH4 features dual passive radiators promise better quality sound and bass than similarly-sized speakers (says LG).
The PH3 has the appearance of a decorative candle holder and indeed a color light on top completes the illusion. It has 5 different lighting modes and it can go for up to 10 hours.
These PH2, PH3 and PH4 feature an auxiliary jack for music players that predate Bluetooth. Perhaps more useful is the ability to connect to two Bluetooth devices at once (obviously, just one can play music).
Then there's the PH1, which also features mood lighting. It can last up to 5 hours of playing music and you can use it as a hands-free to make calls too.
LG will show off the four speakers at IFA, perhaps then it will reveal pricing and launch info as well.
Fancy some Kenny G? Interesting ;)
What are the watts for each speaker?
"Perhaps more useful is the ability to connect to two Bluetooth devices at once (obviously, just one can play music)." Why not strereo play or party play like in JBLs? I think that will make more sense if one buys more than one.
