ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics (LG) will unveil its newest addition to the TONE Series, the TONE Platinum, at next week's Mobile World Congress. Not only does the new wireless stereo headset feature sleek and ergonomic curves for wearing the headset for hours without discomfort, the TONE Platinum together with the sound technology of Harmon Kardon, gives listeners powerful sound optimization, clear voice and vocals and full-bodied sound.
"We are excited to collaborate with LG on the LG TONE Platinum," said Michael Mauser, executive vice president and president of Harman's Lifestyle Division. "Harman Kardon has over 60 years of experience creating premium audio and ground-breaking sound technologies. When a product like the LG TONE Platinum carries the Harman Kardon name, it is confirmation that the device will offer class-leading audio quality and outstanding design."
Designed for avid music lovers and professionals alike, the TONE Platinum comes with up to 10 hours of music time and 11 hours of talk time. And with user friendly controls, you can easily navigate music play options, manage calls and power the headset. The headset also features the Balanced Armature design as the sound module to minimize distortion. Plus the aluminum earphone housing helps deliver a more sophisticated sound performance.
The TONE Platinum also features aptX™ HD Audio Codec to deliver CD-like quality audio over Bluetooth that faithfully reproduces the full audio bandwidth and minimizes latency by significantly reducing the bit rate – all without affecting sound quality. The TONE Platinum also offers noise canceling dual microphones for clearer calls – and uninterrupted conversations – even in the noisiest environments. What's more is that the headset comes with Voice Command to handle incoming calls just by voice and the Tone & Talk app now supports Voice Memo and Find Me via any Android smartphone (version 4.1 and higher).
"The LG TONE Platinum is a showcase of innovative technologies that aims to deliver premium sound quality in a form-factor that millions of customers have come to embrace," said Michael Park, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices Business Division at LG Electronics. "LG's TONE offerings are second to none in the wireless Bluetooth world which is a key growth area for our mobile business."
LG plans to make the TONE Platinum available in the United States in March, followed by other key markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America. Visitors to Mobile World Congress are encouraged to stop by LG's booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from February 22-25 to see the newest TONE Platinum.
