#4 Recommended Bluetooth Earbuds

LG Tone Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Headset

  • The very first model introduced by LG, known as the LG Tone HBS 700 was very popular
  • Since then, LG has made an HBS-730HBS-750HBS-800 and an HBS-900. I guess that’s proof for the popularity of this model.

Out of all these different models, what do we recommend the most?

  • HBS-700 is VERY OLD, so unless you’re a collector, you’d probably want to go for a newer model
  • HBS-900 is a premium pair that ain’t cheap. However, it has been co-developed with Harman Kardon and has probably the best sound quality among the HBS siblings. There’s no doubt that it is the sleekest in the family. If you can afford the price tag, the HBS-900 is the pair to own
  • User reviews on the HBS-800 are AWFUL. You’re welcome to read them, but it’s best to stay away from them
  • Here are some features of the HBS-750 model – enhanced bass response, HD Voice, Bluetooth 3.0, Supports Headset (HSP), Hands-Free (HFP), Advanced Audio Distribution (A2DP), Audio/Video Remote Control (AVRCP) Bluetooth profiles, Echo Cancellation, Noise Reduction, Text To Speech using the ‘LG BT Reader’ app, connect to two devices simultaneously, vibrating incoming call alert, Auto Reconnect, Music will pause when you have an incoming call and resume when the call has ended, Advanced Multipoint, Battery Status Alert, aptX® Compatible – no compromise on sound quality, Talk Time Up to 15 hours, Music Play Time up to 10 hours, Standby Time Up to 21 days, Charging Time less than 2 hours, rechargeable battery – microUSB cable, Memory Flex Neck Strap with magnetic ear buds
  • The HBS-730 is almost identical to the HBS-750, but has the following additional features – call waiting, call reject, last number redial, voice activated dialing. Other than these ‘call-related’ features, the 730 and 750 are more or less the same.
  • We really can’t help you a lot in choosing between them except that the HBS-750 generally looks better than the HBS-730 ;)
