Soundcore, Anker’s premium audio brand, has announced the launch of the Motion X500 Portable High Fidelity Speaker. The compact speaker delivers powerful, immersive sound with spatial audio capabilities.

This follows the recent announcement of the affordable Soundcore Motion 300, which has two 15W full-range drivers, and the Soundcore Motion X600 I previously reviewed, which was the first Soundcore speaker with Spatial Audio with a 50W total output.

Immersive 3D Sound Performance

The Motion X500 is equipped with 3 full range drivers – two directed to the left and right, and one pointing upwards. Together, these produce 40W of total audio output to fill rooms with detailed spatial sound. Soundcore’s customised spatial audio algorithm and high-end DSP enhance the audio quality, resulting in rich, high-fidelity sound with excellent clarity. The speaker is Hi-Res Audio certified and compatible with the LDAC codec on Android devices, allowing users to stream music in the highest quality formats. A 9-band EQ in the Soundcore app provides customisation options to tune the sound.

Sleek, Portable Design

The Motion X500 features an aluminium body with a matte finish, and Soundcore’s signature logo embossed on the front grille. Its compact, purse-like design includes a fixed handle for easy portability between rooms or on trips. With a built-in 7.2V/6400mAh battery and IPX7 waterproof rating, the X500 can be used anywhere – whether relaxing in the backyard or camping outdoors. Dynamic LED lights accentuate the upward-firing “Sky Channel” driver, emitting different colours based on the EQ mode or customised via the app. The speaker comes in 3 colour options: Black Deluxe, Glitzy Blue, and Pink Punch.

Pricing and Availability

The Motion X500 is available for pre-order on Soundcore’s website starting at £129.99 in the UK. For a limited time, customers can get £40 off the speaker for just £1 during pre-order. The speaker will be widely available for purchase on November 9th for £169.99 and on Amazon.

With powerful immersive sound, sleek design, and portable form factor, the new Motion X500 looks to be an impressive addition to Soundcore’s Bluetooth speaker lineup. The spatial audio capabilities and discount pre-order pricing make this speaker a compelling option for music listeners wanting an audio upgrade.
