Here’s why the LG Tone Free FN7 should be your next true wireless earbuds
With the role of music and entertainment media having positively exploded in the past year due to the lockdown, the humble earbud has likewise evolved from being a convenient mobile add-on into a personal staple piece of tech. Being able to enjoy your favourite tunes on-demand or having to communicate effectively in your conference all is pretty much a necessity nowadays, and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t own a pair.
However, external noise can sometimes make it difficult to immerse yourself in a new album or podcast even when you’re plugged in, so here’s where we introduce LG’s Tone Free FN7 earbuds and its impressive suite of features.
From Active Noise Cancellation to an antibacterial UVnano charging cradle, these true wireless earbuds flawlessly fuse quality sound with sleek design and unparalleled utility. Here’s our quick first impression from unboxing these earbuds:-
Accordingly, here are six reasons why we think it deserves a spot on your list the next time you go tech shopping.
1) Active Noise Cancellation allows for total immersion
First up, the Tone Free FN7 features specialised Active Noise Cancellation, which is designed to tune out all the noise and chatter that comes with your day-to-day interactions. After all, music can be a downright lovely companion…when it isn’t being drowned out by bothersome external noise. Pumping up the volume can only do so much without damaging your ears, so why not cancel out all that noise instead?
Active Noise Cancellation ensures that every track sounds like a private concert on the go, cutting out everything else you might be struggling to ignore, such as birds chirping, loud cafe patrons and blaring car horns. Life without these everyday sounds feels like a special kind of freedom, allowing you to focus only on what you want to hear, so whether that refers to bass-thumping music or action-packed movies, you’re good to go.
2) Designed to tackle an active lifestyle
Pursuing an active lifestyle? You’ll also be glad to know the Tone Free FN7 also supports Ambient Sound Mode to ensure you are better aware of your surroundings and ready to action on what’s taking place around you – be it crossing the street or hearing an important building/shopping department announcement and much more.
The Tone Free FN7 also boasts of a new spiral ear gel design that help you get a better fit (the package ships with various ear gel sizes), maximises comfort, and improves noise isolation simultaneously. Worried about damaging these new earbuds if you sweat a lot in your workout or continue your activity while it rains? Fear not for the Tone Free FN7’s IPX4 rating certifies it splash proof so you can keep on listening rain or shine.
3) UVnano keeps it clean
Still, here’s the thing about earbuds: they can end up carrying around a lot of bacteria. Think about all the places you use them, and where you store them. Remember that time you put your earbuds down on a cafe table? Twenty other people might have done that too on the very same day. Fortunately, the LG Tone Free FN7’s handy UVnano charging case comes with a bacteria-killing solution, and independent testing (accredited by TÜV SÜD and Underwriters Laboratories (UL)) on LG’s side has shown that the UVnano charging cradle kills 99.9% of E. Coli & S. aureus bacteria on the speaker mesh of the earbuds within a mere ten minutes of charging (watch our video above to find out more).
Essentially, whenever you leave your earbuds to charge, you can rest easy knowing that it’ll be squeaky clean afterwards. The importance of good health can’t be overstated in unusual times like these, so knowing that your earbuds are cleaning up after themselves is a real relief.
4) Three words: Meridian. Spatial. Audio.
LG Tone Free FN7’s crystal clear and spatial audio is a tag-team effort with Meridian Audio, the prestigious British hi-fi makers. Meridian’s Headphone Spatial Processing (HSP) provides sound with a realistic sense of space, simulating the experience of listening to actual loudspeakers. With that in mind, stick these nifty buds in and picture yourself sitting in front of an elaborate sound system – and what you hear won’t be too far off the mark.
For those who adore bombastic tracks and explosive thrillers, you will also be happy to know that these earbuds are designed with higher grade materials (such as higher quality silicon material, a stronger metal demo and more) to improve bass delivery experience, which LG coins it as “Roaring Bass”. With the Tone Free FN7, a fuller and richer experience awaits you. Additionally, if you want to finetune how certain songs sound, you can also dive into Meridian’s four unique EQ modes. Finally, for our gamer friends, the earbuds are great for playing on the go too, since they deliver real-time sound with minimal delay, and immersion is everything in games nowadays.
5) That sounds about right
These earbuds only get better with the LG Tone Free app, which allows you to make sure everything sounds exactly the way you want. While the quartet of EQ modes can offer you a wide variety of listening experiences, a preset won’t ever come close to a profile that you create yourself. So, if you want even sharper vocals and an even deeper bass, just boot up the app and you’ll be able to create your own custom EQ modes to go nuts with.
By that same token, you’ll be able to customise the earbuds’ touchpad controls via the app too, letting you pause and play music, skip a song and do much more with a simple press. You can even adjust how much ambient sound you want to take in from your surroundings, which is absurdly cool.
Finally, the app rounds out its versatile set of offerings with several highly useful features, such as reading your texts aloud or locating your earbuds if you lose track of them, and we all know the latter happens a lot more often than we’d like.
And if you’re wondering what the app’s phone compatibility is like, you’ll be glad to know you can enjoy seamless connectivity and functionality using the app on either Android or iOS.
Beyond music immersion, the Tone Free FN7 earbuds feature three pairs of microphones to improve call clarity and noise reduction. Now you can jump seamlessly between listening to tunes and tackling those nasty last-minute conference calls anywhere, anytime.
6) All that and it’s a looker too
In many ways, you could say the LG Tone Free FN7 earbuds are quite like a gleaming new sports car: both look enviously stylish and pack loads of power under the hood. In fact, even the packaging is gorgeous - these earbuds come in a compact case that sits snugly in the middle of your palm, with an all-around fashionable aesthetic to boot. Pocket-friendly, these earbuds are ready to go without having to worry about an unsightly bulge.
Finally, for folks worrying about the battery life - there is no need to. You can enjoy more than 20 blissful hours of use on a single full charge, with up to seven hours of continuous playback in the earbuds and another 14 hours in the cradle. Even if the battery runs out, a quick five-minute charge will be all you need for another hour of music-blasting satisfaction. For even greater convenience, the charging case even supports wireless charging for ultimate convenience.
The best part is you get all of these capabilities for just S$298, which is pretty good value. The LG Tone Free FN7 is available in black and white and can be purchased from LG's Flagship Store on Lazada and also on the LG Official Store on Shopee. You will also be able to find it at major retailers like Best Denki, COURTS, Challenger, Gain City, Harvey Norman, Stereo Electronics, and ConnectIT.
