Back in June, LG announced its Tone Free TWS earbuds which featured a self-cleaning charging case with UV light. Now we get a similar looking pair bearing the HBS-FN7 model number which come with the same neat case and active noise cancellation.
The new model has three microphones on each earbud for monitoring and toning out sounds. They are developed alongside Meridian Audio and come with an in-ear canal design. Pairing is done over Bluetooth 5.1 and the earphones support the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs.
The UVnano case emits UV light onto the silicone tip and inner mesh. LG claims this kills 99.9% of E. coli and S. aureus 2 bacteria. It charges over USB-C. Battery life with the case is listed at 15 hours.
The LG Tone Free FN7 are already up for sale in South Korea for KRW 21,900,000 ($194). They are expected to arrive to the rest of Asia, Europe and North America in Q4 this year.
They should rather call these the LG "Tone Deaf". In a world where users decry the missing headphone jack, LG is getting ready to follow trends and ditch it on their own handsets.
Can't take it seriously for Android users without aptX... AAC has being proven inconsistent audio quality by many audiophiles
