LG TONE Free earbuds feature premium audio experience from Meridian technology

What do you look out for when purchasing earphones or headphones? While there are many models to choose from, your planned use should help greatly decide on which one you should buy, one of them being sound quality. 

Sound quality is important for everyone with other considerations being isolation, comfort, weight, portability, and fit. 

LG Electronics East Africa launched the TONE Free earbuds a few weeks ago. The earbuds are available in two models, HBS-FN6  and HBS-FN4. 

LG TONE Free The earbuds are the first true wireless earbuds featuring the premium audio experience of Meridian technology and a unique UVnano charging case that kills 99.9 percent of bacteria. In this article we explain the Meridian technology on TONE Free Earbuds and why they make them special. 

LG TONE Free earbuds deliver an extra audio dimension courtesy of HSP (Headphone Spatial Processing) technology from Meridian. Meridian has been LG’s long-standing audio partner in delivering superior sound powered by Digital Signal Processing, a technology that Meridian has been perfecting for over 25 years. DSP not only recreates a realistic soundstage that simulates the experience of listening to real loudspeakers, it also delivers vocals with pristine clarity, completely immersing the listener.

The new TONE Free earbuds also feature customized EQ sound settings that has also been developed by Meridian with each mode offering four unique presets to deliver a perfectly tailored listening experience: Natural for authentic and balanced sound, Immersive for an expanded sense of space, Bass Boost for that extra punch and Treble Boost for greater vocal clarity. 

The snug-fitting eartips also provide a tight seal for Noise Isolation that blocks out most distracting exterior noise while the Ambient Sound mode lets users hear what’s going on around them with the press of a button.

When the buds were first launched globally, Meridian Audio CEO John Buchanan said “We poured all of our accumulated expertise into creating the sound identity for the new generation of LG TONE Free earbuds,” 

 “Whether you’re at home, in the car, commuting or at the gym, the new LG TONE Free is a clear step forward in audio innovation and performance, meeting the demand for convenient high-quality listening experiences, anywhere,” he added.

The LG TONE Free lineup as we mentioned includes two models both offering the same Meridian audio technology but do not include the unique UVnano feature of the flagship HBS-FN6. 

The buds are available for purchase from Ksh. 18,000.
