LG intros new premium Bluetooth headphones developed with Harman/Kardon
LG dubs these new headphones as the “perfect accessory for the LG G3,” so if you were still having doubts about the next LG flagship, that should allay your concerns. Today in Korea, LG announced its newest premium Bluetooth headphone gear which was developed in partnership with Harman/Kardon.

The LG Tone Infinim (HBS900) Bluetooth headphones maintain the same collar form factor of previous LG headsets, but with Harman/Kardon audio technology. This iteration of the LG Tone series packs all the features you want with Bluetooth devices.

For the active individual, there is a jog button for fast forward and rewind of your music. There is also a vibration alert to augment audio notifications of messages, time and battery status.

A couple super smart features of the LG Tone Infinim that are exclusive for LG G3 owners are Name Alert, which will announce the name or phone number for an incoming call, and Answer Me+, which will automatically disconnect the headphones if you choose to simply lift your G3 to your ear for an incoming call and use the handset.

“LG’s newest premium headset co-developed with Harman/Kardon will be the perfect companion device to complement our new flagship smartphone LG G3, offering superior sound for a superior phone,” according to Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile.

The LG Tone Infinim has outstanding battery life too. The 220mAh battery will provide up to 17 hours of talk time, 14 hours of playback time, and a whopping 550 hours of standby time. One odd point we see in the specs is these headphones use the Bluetooth 3.0 standard.

These new headphones will be available worldwide this summer, presumably at, or after the launch of the LG G3. The initial color scheme will be silver, but more choices will be available later. Pricing was not announced, but the LG Tone Ultra (HBS800) retails for $120. Those headsets had JBL audio tech inside. With a Harman/Kardon logo on these new headphones, we will safely guess the LG Tone Infinim will start at a price point north of rest of LG’s mobile audio line-up.
