Thanks to LG Canada, I recently received a LG Music Flow P5 Bluetooth Speaker for review.
The packaging was very compact. It is just enough room for the snug speaker inside.
The contents of the box are super simple: speaker, USB cable for charging and super concise instructions.
By simple instructions, I mean this. Only two steps that you can do in under a minute!
The sound was impressive for a small speaker. I was testing it with Apple Music (because that’s what the kids are using these days right?) and the sound was very clear and there was decent low end and high end. As well, the volume levels could get impressively high without sounding compressed or crackling, which is usually an issue with small bluetooth speakers.
I do own and use Harmon Kardon Aura speakers as my main living room speakers but the lightness and wire-free LG Music Flow speakers allow me to bring it in the kitchen, washroom or laundry with ease. It’s not waterproof though, so don’t actually bring it in the shower!
The 2100mAh battery last approximately 15 hours. It takes about 3 hours to charge the entire thing but I plugged the USB into my iPhone block and it didn’t seem that bad. It also turns off by itself when it’s idle to help save power.
When I paired it to my phone for the first time, it recommended me an official Bluetooth app that allows me to control the volume on my phone.
One interesting feature is that you can actually pair two phones to the one speaker at the same time. Not sure why anyone would need to do this but you could have some playlist war with your roommate if you wanted! If you have two speakers, they can be paired to create a stereo sound.
While it’s not my main house speaker, the LG Music Flow P5 Bluetooth speaker makes the perfect portable companion.
