LG Electronics just released a new wireless Bluetooth stereo headset called the LG Tone Ultra with JBL Signature Sound, model HBS-800. The headset is equipped with Ambient Noise Cancellation (ANC) that reduces background sounds for a superb acoustic experience in varying environments and employs echo cancellation technologies that help eliminate echoes, smooth voice distortion, and improve overall voice quality. Coupled with HD Voice and aptX, LG Tone Ultra gives users outstanding music sound quality and crystal-clear voice calls in one, hands-free device.
Providing users with a stylish device that offers up to 10 hours of talk and 10 hours of music time, the wireless stereo headset is mobile phone compatible and Google Voice Actions enabled, making voice commands the new way to look up a friend, check the weather or get updates on the big game.
Capitalizing on the design heritage of the original LG Tone and LG Tone Plus wireless headsets, the LG Tone Ultra features the same award-winning, 3D NeckBehind design. The LG Tone’s unique form factor secured LG a 2013 RedDot Design Award and 2012 International Design Excellence Awards finalist honors.
Collaborating with the Embedded Audio team at audio industry leader Harman International, LG Tone Ultra combines LG Tone design and technology with JBL Signature Sound, generating purer, more accurate extended bass. This makes LG Tone Ultra a great complement to LG flagship smartphones such as the LG G2, which features expanded audio capabilities.
