Soundcore will soon be launching the Motion X500, a speaker with spatial audio that is surprisingly compact for its capabilities. This joins the company’s line of portable speakers, fitting between the X300 and X600 range, but with an even more portable design than the previous one; so it is ideal to take to a picnic and to the pool, as it also happens to be water resistant (IPX7).

Going into details , the Soundcore Motion To provide deeper bass, the X500 includes two passive radiators intended to reinforce the bass. Additionally, the digital amplifiers built into the Motion X500 produce up to 40W of power . According to Anker, this is enough to fill a room with rich and detailed 3D spatial sound.

With that said, we are dealing with a high-fidelity speaker, which naturally exhibits Hi-Res audio certification and is compatible with codecs such as LDAC and AAC ; so both Android and Apple users will be able to get the most out of this device. To achieve crystal clear sound, the Soundcore Motion X500 uses a high-end DSP together with the company’s spatial audio algorithm.
