Does GAMER SPEAKER make sense? We tested the LG UltraGear

Does a specialized bluetooth box work well in games?

LG UltraGear is an external sound box that is proposed to meet the specific needs of the gaming audience. This includes adjustable RGB LEDs, as you can probably guess, but also extra care in features and functionality to make it more suitable as a gaming companion.

This sound box is quite versatile, able to connect to various devices via bluetooth, P2, auxiliary or optical port, in addition to being able to be used on a computer via a USB Type-C connection. It aims, unlike other speakers, to focus on some of the features that make the difference for gamers.

Among these changes is a greater sense of depth with two directional sound channels, which brings a sense of sound position and direction that is usually missing from external Bluetooth speakers. In the video, we tested the ability to detect spatial noise while playing Rainbow Six Siege, a game that requires a lot of this type of information to play well.

Another feature we tested is speaker volume. The speaker can also be used as a microphone in online matches, providing a noise-canceling feature that prevents game sound from being picked up by microphones, providing a clear voice for your in-game team.

In addition to these differentiated features, the box also supports DTS 7.1 technology, simply by connecting a compatible headphone speaker. And of course it has LEDs.
