LG TONE+ Review

0. phoneArena 05 Dec 2012, 07:40 posted on

Bluetooth headsets come in many different shapes and sizes. Some you clip to your collar, some you place over your ear, and some you wear like a regular pair of cans. Chances are, however, that you haven’t yet seen one quite like the LG TONE+ (model HBS-730). This stereo Bluetooth headset is designed to be worn around the neck, while the wired in-ear headphones deliver the goodness to your ears...

Looks nice...can be hidden beneath the collar.
I didn't know LG was making things like this!

It's great. I have the LG Tone HBS-700 and I'm very satisfied with it.

Yeah very comfortable. You won't even notice them around your neck after some time.

Best Buy has the 700s free with LG Optimus G. Both online and in-store...just ring up with purchase and it promos them out. I got mine a couple days ago. I normally don't like ear buds, but they have yet to make an over-ear bluetooth that is comfortable and these work pretty well.

Got one of these thingies, and it is so useful for walking around, listening to music, and/or calling without having to have a phone in your hand and be leaving your phone in your pocket!

Make sure you are buying the 730. (+)

Most stores don't carry them yet and the 700 is last year's model.

I have them paired with the LG G2. My opinion: They are a clever design, functional, and easy to pair and use. The sound quality, however, is not good when compared to the LG QuadBeat 2 earbuds; too much treble—even with bass boost. Videos are normal with standard earbuds; but with the LG Tone+ HBS-730 (mp4s, YouTube, and Skype), the video and audio never sync. The delay, which is quite obvious, varies as the video plays.
