TWS earbuds have already become a standard for mobile audio. They differ from classic active noise cancelling headphones only by their appearance, but in their capabilities, they compete with many full-size solutions. LG Tone Free FN7 received all the relevant functions and a pleasant bonus, which is relevant in an epidemic era. We will tell you why these Bluetooth wireless earbuds are interesting in this LG Tone Free FN7 review below.
Design is as important as performance for modern WiFi earbuds. LG Tone Free FN7 is made in an ergonomic body with weight distribution in the center of the head. Therefore, the LG headphones do not cause discomfort even when worn for a long time throughout the day. Each earbud has touch zones to control playback and answer calls. The pads respond to light touch, so you don’t have to press the accessory into your ears to switch tracks. The wireless earphones confirm any manipulation with a sound signal, making you not think of a possible fault.
Flexible ear cushions made of medical silicone also received a special shape. They provide a snug fit that prevents the active noise cancellation earbuds from falling out during jogging or sports. The LG Bluetooth headset is not afraid of bad weather either: the case is protected according to the IPX4 standard, meaning it is not afraid of rain and water splashes. The charging case is also well designed. Due to its round shape and small size, it can easily slip into a small pocket.
Despite its compact design, the LG Tone Free FN7 is capable of pumping hard rock songs. The combination of 6mm drivers with a silicone diaphragm lip, metal dome, and dedicated damper delivers rich bass. Middle and high frequencies are also reproduced without distortion. And Meridian Audio’s digital signal processing technology creates a lifelike soundstage that mimics a full-fledged speaker system.
The branded equalizer, available in the mobile application, allows you to choose from four ready-made options to customize the sound of different genres. Natural preset balances the audio track, Thrusting adds volume, Bass Boost is good for hip-hop lovers, and Treble Boost emphasizes the vocal component.
Headphone Spatial Processing (HSP) technology solves the problem of crosstalk between left and right earbuds, while at the same time makes vocals as expressive as possible.
Active Noise Cancellation
Active noise cancellation has long been common in true wireless earphones. The ANC function allows you to listen to music comfortably on metropolitan streets or even in airplanes. For optimal performance of this technology, LG headphones received six built-in microphones simultaneously (three in each bud). With their help, the headset analyzes the frequency characteristics of external noise and neutralizes it using inverted sound waves. Dense nozzles are also important, in which the spiral elements were used in the design. They significantly reduce the volume amount of the surrounding world, allowing you to focus on your favorite tunes.
To pause the noise reduction, just press one of the earbuds – this will allow you to hear sounds around. Transparent mode is especially useful when you need to have a quick conversation or safely cross the street. The microphones at the bottom of the housing make your voice more clear while talking on the phone, cutting out annoying street hum.
During a pandemic, disinfection is required not only for hands but also for gadgets. You don’t have to constantly wipe LG headphones with sanitizer: Ultraviolet emitters are built into the charging case. They reliably clean the speaker mesh from viruses and bacteria when connected to a power supply. According to the manufacturer, the efficiency of the accessory is up to 99.9%, which ensures reliable protection of the owner’s health.
Unlike traditional antiseptics, ultraviolet light does not get into the eyes or on the skin. Disinfection mode is activated only when the case is closed, so the operation of the UV light remains invisible to the user. And the blue light, visible when you open the case, is just a decorative illumination that is safe for your eyes. Another good bonus is hypoallergenic silicone tips. They are suitable for sensitive ears.
LG’s engineers have used the Bluetooth 5.1 module to make the Tone Free FN7 energy-efficient, so the battery of the earbuds is impressive. When listening to music in a quiet environment, the gadget will last up to 7 hours without ANC, and with noise reduction – up to 5 hours. And if you take into account the battery capacity of the charging case, the accessory will work even longer: 21 and 15 hours, respectively.
Fast charging facility is also provided. In case five minutes were spent, the noise cancelling wireless headphone would suffice for one hour of autonomous music playback. And when using the wireless station, it is enough to place the case on the charging pad, without the fear of automatically inserting it into your pocket with a cable.
The LG Tone Free FN7 is a good example of how to fit the most demanded modern technologies into a miniature body. Despite its small size, the TWS headset offers key features of the full-size active noise cancelling headphones model: ergonomics, high-quality sound, and active noise cancellation.
At the same time, the LG Active Noise Cancelling headphones do not cost more than their advanced counterparts – $146.99 on Amazon.com. There is also LG Tone Free FN6 (REVIEW) would cost $113.44 only but you have to discard active noise cancellation.
