LG, a company based in South Korea, has been trying to expand its presence in the wearables market for a while now. It was previously famous for its television line-up, refrigerators, and washing machines. Now, LG has launched a truly wireless earphone called LG TONE Free with model number HBS-TFN7. One highlight of this new product is that it comes with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology that tunes out ambient noise, and this allows users to have a better sound output without any disturbances.
LG TONE Free Earbuds Price and Availability
The latest LG earbuds are already available in South Korea for KRW 219,000, which is roughly $190. It is currently sold in Glossy White and Matte Black color variants. The earbuds are also set to release in key markets of North America, Europe, and Asia. Earlier this year, LG launched its Tone Free HBS-FN6, which cost $150. Even though the price range for the new version is slightly higher, it is worth it.
LG TONE Free Earbuds Features and Specifications
As mentioned earlier, the notable feature of the earbuds is its active noise cancellation feature. Each earpiece uses a three-microphone system to hear external noise and cancel it out. It uses sound tuning by Meridian Audio, a British manufacturer for loudspeakers and other audio equipment.
Speaking of the battery, the earbuds have a life of five hours on the earpieces. In total, it has a 15-hour battery life along with the case with ANC on. The earbuds use Bluetooth 5.1, with support for the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs.
The charging case of the earbuds is equipped with LG’s UV nano-technology. It uses UV light to sanitize the earpieces, ensuring complete hygiene of the device. The UV feature is said to kill up to 99.9% of certain types of bacteria. However, a point to note is that the technology isn’t capable of killing viruses like the Coronavirus. Further, the earbuds feature an IPX4 rating for dust and water resistance. The case also offers wireless charging.
The LG Tone Free earbuds may not be a breakthrough in technology, but it is certainly the best in the market currently. The price is quite affordable, and the device is worth considering for investment.
