LG’s new Tone Free FP true wireless earbuds feature a “Whispering Mode” to hold the right earbud next to the mouth during calls to use the microphone. There are three new earbuds in the lineup — the FP5, FP8, and FP9 with almost the same specs. All are noise cancelling with an IPX4 water resistance rating to withstand light splashes. The earbud stems are 4.4mm shorter than previous models. The improved drivers and diaphragms offer more bass without impacting clarity. Headphone Spatial Processing and 3D Sound Stage give an audio experience that encloses the listener.
They are exclusive to one or two of the headphones. The FP9 earbuds can double as a wireless transmitter to be used with non-Bluetooth devices. The FP8 and FP9 earbuds have LG’s bacteria-killing UV tech, can kill 99.9 percent of the bacteria on the earbuds’ speaker mesh in five minutes to reduce the chance of inner ear infections. These two earbuds with improved battery life compared to the FP5. It can run for 10 hours on a charge, or up to 24 hours when used with their charging case. The FP8 model supports wireless charging. It will be starting this month in “key markets” at a price that’s yet to be announced.
