The LG TONE Platinum SE is the first in the series to support the Google Assistant. It Assistant can be activated with a tap of the button instead of having to say “OK Google”, which will make conversations in a foreign language flow more smoothly.
The Platinum SE features dynamic drivers for great bass and a balanced armature for better reproduction of high-frequencies. This kind of hybrid design is used in professional in-ear monitors.
The LG TONE Ultra SE has a different trick – a mono loudspeaker. This means you can take the plugs out of your ears so you can clearly hear what’s happening around you without pausing your phone call or music.
Speaking of, both new headphones offer dual MEMS microphones for clear audio.
Price and availability details will be revealed when LG unveils the two new TONE models at IFA.
Around your neck (NOT over your head), then you pull the headphones out from the retractable Kevlar chords when using them. Quite an awesome function actually.
How do you even wear this?
