I had the chance to check out the new LG Tone Free and LG Tone Studio headsets that were recently announced before CES 2017 kicked off. The familiar LG Tone headsets take on a truly wireless form in the Tone Free, and a bluetooth speaker in the Tone Studio.

You can expect to see a lot of truly wireless earbuds in 2017, the Tone Free is one of them. They come with the neckband as a place to store and charge them. Just push the buttons on the side of the neckband to release and use.
The neckband vibrates to alert for incoming calls and texts.
“LG has a rich legacy of innovating in the wearable audio market, and our products have become the standard by which all other earphones are judged,” said Michael Park, vice president of Innovative Personal Devices Business Division at LG Electronics, Inc. “We are committed to leading the way in this fast moving market by developing exciting new products which appeal to every music-loving and convenience-seeking individual.”
LG Tone Studio
The Tone Studio take the LG neckband and make it a bluetooth speaker. The Tone Studio headset has 4 speakers, 2 on the top and 2 on the bottom. It also has the traditional earbuds at the tip of the neckband. There’s a toggle button to switch from using the earbuds to using the speakers. The speakers are supposed to feel liek you have surround sound technology. The bass isn’t too strong on them, but the speakers are loud. You can feel the music vibrate around your neck. The build quality seems good too. When we asked LG about using the Tone Studio for fitness related activity, they said it’s not sweatproof and don’t recommend for the gym. They are more lifestyle related.
