ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS N.J., March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you ever set down your earbuds and then searched for them everywhere later? Do you often find yourself untangling wires to stream music or talk on the phone? Are your wireless headphones always losing their charge right when your favorite song comes on?
Starting today, misplaced or dead earbuds and tangled wires are a thing of the past with the new LG TONE FREE. These wireless earbuds come with a neckband for easy storage when you're not listening to music or talking on the phone. And, the neckband doesn't just store the earbuds, it also charges them all day, letting you listen to music longer and talk more using the LG TONE FREE. Plus, the neckband sends vibration alerts – even while charging – for incoming calls and text messages, making sure you don't ever miss important conversations. And for those moments when a neckband isn't convenient, the LG offers an optional charging cradle for even more power.
"The LG TONE FREE untangles you from wires and the hassle of having to charge your earbuds," says Bruce Tripido, LG Senior Director, U.S. Accessories. "And, unlike other wireless earbuds that come with a case, we've got a new design that stays true to our legacy TONE around-the-neck, contoured form factor while keeping you free to answer or ignore a call with voice commands for a real wireless stereo experience."
Just like the TONE headsets stay put no matter where your music – or your calls – take you, the LG TONE FREE real wireless earbuds also feature Dual MEMS microphones so you'll never miss a moment of conversation. Plus, the microphones are built with enhanced sensitivity for clear – and uninterrupted – phone calls. And, your phone calls won't the be the only thing clear with the LG TONE FREE, these wireless earbuds feature balanced armature speakers that deliver high-resolution audio, rich bass and better treble when playing your favorite tunes.
Available at Best Buy stores nationwide and online at BestBuy.com today for $199.99, the LG TONE FREE comes in black and is compatible with the latest iOS and Android smartphones like the new LG G6® and the LG V20®. The LG TONE FREE will also be available later this Spring at AT&T, Target and Verizon stores nationwide.
