Portable speakers have become an essential accessory for music lovers who crave high-quality audio on the go. The Soundcore Motion X600 aims to deliver an exceptional audio experience combined with sleek design and reliable battery life. In this review, we’ll look at the key aspects of the Motion X600, including its design and build quality, sound performance and battery life.

Design & Build Quality

The Soundcore Motion X600 showcases a modern and minimalist design that catches the eye. The speaker’s sleek yet sophisticated shape gives it an elegant and refined look. The build quality is outstanding, with a sturdy construction that ensures durability and longevity.

Additionally, the speaker is IPX7 rated, making it resistant to water splashes, making it an excellent choice for pool parties or a day at the beach.

Sound Quality

When it comes to sound performance, the Soundcore Motion X600 truly shines. The speaker uses five drivers, including two woofers, two tweeters and one upward-firing driver to help throw sound up and around the listener, which is especially effective when listening in-doors and it can bounce sound off the ceiling.

The speaker’s three amps generate 50 watts — left at 20W, right at 20W and “Sky Channel” at 10W.The speaker produces a well-balanced sound signature with rich bass, clear mid-range, and crisp highs. The bass response is particularly impressive, offering depth and impact without overpowering the overall audio output. Whether you’re listening to your favorite music genres or podcasts, the Motion X600 provides an impressive audio experience.

The Motion X600 boasts an impressive battery life that ensures long hours of uninterrupted playback. With its built-in rechargeable battery, the speaker offers up to 12 hours of continuous music playtime on a single charge. While not amazing, this extended battery life should still be more than enough for most outdoor trips or parties where access to power outlets might be limited. The speaker also supports quick charging, allowing you to get back to your music in no time.

Connectivity and Features

The Soundcore Motion X600 provides versatile connectivity options, including Bluetooth 5.0. This allows for seamless pairing with your smartphone, tablet, or any Bluetooth-enabled device. The Motion X600 also features a built-in microphone, allowing you to use it for hands-free calling or voice commands with your virtual assistant. The speaker supports stereo pairing, giving you the option to connect two Motion X600 speakers for a more immersive sound experience and, when setting it up for the first time, it support Fast Pair on Android which helps streamline the whole connecting process.

The Soundcore app enhances your ability to fine-tune the audio output of the speaker. To fully optimise your listening experience, we definitely recommend you play around with the various options available. Saying that, your first plan of action would likely involve accepting and installing the latest firmware update effortlessly by tapping a few buttons.

Within the app’s main page, you will find a convenient play/pause/skip tracks button, a basic volume bar, and an equaliser button. Clicking on the equaliser button allows you to select from a range of presets or manually adjust the equaliser settings according to your preferences.

The available presets include Soundcore Signature, which is excellent for a wide variety of music genres, as well as Voice, Treble Boost, and Balanced options. Additionally, the app offers a custom equaliser with nine bands that can be expanded, allowing ample room for experimentation and customisation if you have a keen interest in audio refinement. The X600 also supports Sony’s proprietary LDAC codec for certified hi-res streaming, which is great for those running Android devices equipped with LDAC.
