LG announced today its new Bluetooth stereo headset, the LG
TONE+ (HBS-730,) which offers High Definition (HD) sound
across VoLTE-capable devices.
The successor to the original LG TONE (HBS-700) model
offers enhanced audio quality with a number of
improvements. The extended bass register of the LG TONE+
increases the available sound range. The LG TONE+ also
adopts a professional grade audio codec, the aptX which
delivers CD-quality sound by automatically fitting high
capacity audio data to the available bandwidth while
Thanks to a clever Bluetooth Multi-connection function, the
LG Tone+ can be instantly connected to two smartphones or
to smartphone and other multimedia device. The Audible
Pairing Assistance feature reveals the connection status
when another device is connected, while Vibrating Call
Alert notifies the user of incoming calls. Two other
features, the Audible Battery Status Alert and Mic Mute,
have also been included to maximize convenience. Finally,
BT Reader, one of LG?s own Android applications, monitors
incoming SMS and reads them out to the headset, meaning
users can stay informed without taking their smartphone out
of their pocket.
The talk and standby times of the LG TONE+ have been
extended to 15 and 500 hours, respectively.
The LG TONE+ will be available in Korea, the United States
and China by the end of this month in blue-black and
white-pearl color options.
