LG Electronics (LG) is updating its true wireless stereo listening experience with the launch of the new 2021 LG TONE Free FP series earbuds in Singapore. Ideal for those who lead active, fast-paced lifestyles, the newest LG TONE Free models feature several enhancements to complement the already comfortable in-ear fit, advanced Meridian-tuned sound, powerful active noise cancellation and hygieneboosting UVnano charging case offered in two of the three models.
With fit and comfort as the top priorities for the LG TONE Free lineup, LG collaborated with a leading ergonomic design technology lab to analyze hundreds of subjects' ears, resulting in Arc Design with an earbud stem 4.4 millimeters shorter than on previous models to create the perfect balance and fit for an active lifestyle. The FP series earbuds are IPX4 rated, which makes them resistant to water splashes from any direction, allowing users to wear them without worry during intense workout sessions or in the rain.
New to LG TONE Free lineup is Headphone Spatial Processing from Meridian Audio which envelops the listener with sound that seems to originate from all directions. Another new enhancement is 3D Sound Stage, which expands the sound stage via spatial up-mixing to bring users more lifelike audio for a more captivating listening experience. With larger, upgraded drivers and diaphragms featuring silicone edging allowing for more flexibility and movement, the new TONE Free models now deliver more powerful bass without compromising clarity or detail.
With three microphones in each earbud, the new FP series earbuds offer a better call experience by making the user's voice clearer and with less intrusive ambient noise getting in the way. New Whispering Mode allows for greater call privacy and clarity, allowing users to hold the right earbud close to their mouths as a dedicated microphone, the perfect solution for making and taking calls in environments such as a crowded subway.
Active noise cancelling on the new TONE Free FP series earbuds eliminate lowfrequency sounds that can't be completely blocked by the passive noise cancellation eartips. The microphones on the earbuds listen for ambient noises and neutralize them by producing identical sound waves that are inaudible to the listener, leaving just soundwaves from the music or podcast to enjoy.
Making a return to the FP series, the FP9 and FP8 earbuds comes with the industry's only auto-cleaning UVnano charging case to keep the eartips clean to reduce the chance of inner ear infections, the UV-C LED built into the TONE Free cases is tested to reduce bacteria on the earbuds' speaker mesh by 99.9 percent in just five minutes when charging wired or wirelessly. For additional hygiene, the TONE Free FP models also feature medical-grade, hypoallergenic ear gels to reduce the risk of skin irritations in the ear canal.
LG's newest TWS earbuds now deliver greater user convenience with wider compatibility, simpler connectivity and maximum durability. LG earbuds pair quickly and easily with a wide range of devices including Windows PCs and laptops, while FP9 is equipped with Plug & Wireless function that enables the charging case to double as a wireless dongle, especially handy on airplanes. By plugging the case into a smartphone, gaming console, or other compatible device via USB-C to AUX cable, users can experience both complete wireless freedom and low-latency sound, and immerse in quality entertainment time without any interruptions.
For longer enjoyment and extended on-the-go convenience, LG's new earbuds guarantee exceptional battery life, delivering up to 10 hours of playback time between charges for a total of 24 hours of usage when used with the charging case. A quick charge of just five minutes in the case equates to one full hour of listening, perfect for those times when you forget to charge the night before. For listeners who want wireless charging, LG TONE Free FP8 has that covered.
Paired with the TONE Free app, LG's newest earbuds deliver even more capabilities with access to an equalizer, Ambient Sound mode, touch control customization and Find My Earbuds to help locate either earbud when lost or misplaced. The app also features LAB, where users can access special settings such as Whispering Mode and Game Mode.
