There are currently a large number of truly wireless headphones and more and more OEMs are announcing new ones every year. LG has already announced their update TONE Free FP Series with three models: FP5, FP8 and FP9. Now they have announced the price and availability of the LG TONE Free FP8 in the United States. It is currently available on the LG website as well as LG authorized retailers and has a suggested retail price of $ 179.99. The other two pairs of headphones will be available later in August.
The FP8 offers very good specs and features such as the much-requested active noise cancellation, a comfortable in-ear fit, Meridian Audio’s headphone spatial treatment and a UVnano charging case to regularly clean your headphones. It also now has a 3D soundstage which expands your sound and makes it more realistic or as if you are on a soundstage thanks to the spatial mixing. It also has larger speakers and diaphragms with a silicone border. In other words, it should sound better with more powerful bass.
When it comes to taking and making calls, the FP8 gives you a better calling experience as it has three microphones in each ear cup. It also makes ambient noise less intrusive. It has a new Whispering mode which allows you to hold the earpiece upright closer to your mouth and turn it into a dedicated microphone so you can enjoy call privacy as well as clarity. Meanwhile, Active Noise Cancellation neutralizes ambient noise creating identical but inaudible sound waves.
The UVnano charging case reduces bacteria on the ear cups as it cleans while you charge and it also has hypoallergenic medical grade ear cups which are important during these times. It supports wireless charging and gives you up to 10 hours of battery life and 24 hours when used with the charging case. 5 minutes of fast charging can give you an hour of listening. It also has IPX4 water resistant writing and supports a wide range of devices you can pair it with, including laptops and computers.
You can get the LG TONE Free FP8 now on LG.com and other retailers. The $ 179.99 price is in the mid-range and for something that has ANC this can be a pretty good deal.
