LG Tone Free and Tone Studio Headsets Hands-On at CES 2017
If you didn’t know, I am at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. There’s a bunch of new tech being announced. One of the first things I got to check out was the new LG Tone Free and LG Tone Studio headsets. They were recently announced before CES 2017 kicked off. You’ll recognize the familiar LG Tone headsets, but now they take on a truly wireless form in the Tone Free, and a sort of bluetooth speaker in the LG Tone Studio.
LG Tone Free
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 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.
