Featuring an Arc Design, the new LG TONE Free lineup comes with a 4.4 millimetres shorter stem as compared to previous models and is IPX4 rated. The larger, upgraded drivers and diaphragms featuring silicone edging allow for more flexibility and movement.

Key features of the 2021 LG TONE Free FP9/FP8 earbuds include:

  • Headphone Spatial Processing from Meridian Audio - It envelops the listener with a sound that seems to originate from all directions.
  • 3D Sound Stage - It expands the sound stage via spatial up-mixing to bring users more lifelike audio for a more captivating listening experience.
  • Whispering Mode - It allows for greater call privacy and clarity, allowing users to hold the right earbud close to their mouths as a dedicated microphone.
  • Active noise cancelling - It eliminates low-frequency sounds.

The earbuds are accompanied by an auto-cleaning UVnano charging case to keep the eartips clean. According to the company, the UV-C LED built into the cases is tested to reduce bacteria on the earbuds' speaker mesh by 99.9 percent in just five minutes when charging wired or wirelessly.

In terms of compatibility, the 2021 LG TONE Free FP9/FP8 earbuds easily pair with a wide range of devices including Windows PCs and laptops while FP9 with Plug & Wireless enables the charging case to double as a wireless dongle.
