LG is strengthening its audio line-up with the launch of the Tone Free FP series earbuds, available in three models, and the XBoom 360 Bluetooth speaker, offering premium audio technology and sleek aesthetic design.

Unlike the previous Tone Free earbuds range, all models in the FP series feature Active Noise Cancelling (ANC), in addition to a new Whispering Mode for increased privacy when taking calls by allowing the right earbud to be held as a dedicated microphone.

The upgraded drivers and diaphragms feature silicone edging for powerful bass and when paired with the Tone Free app, users can access an equaliser Ambient Sound mode, touch control customisation and a Find My Earbuds function.

The flagship Tone Free FP9A earbuds come with a new Plug & Play feature to allow the earbuds to wirelessly connect to other devices with an AUX connection, such as a smartphone, gaming console or treadmill, to enable the charging cradle to double as a Bluetooth dongle.

Delivering up to 10 hours of playback time between charges, the FP9A offers a total of 24 hours of use in conjunction with the charging cradle. With just five minutes of charge, the listener will receive one hour of playback time.

LG has continued its partnership with Meridian for the FP series bringing audio technologies such as Headphone Spatial Processing (HSP) and 3D Sound Stage for listeners to experience multi-dimensional sound and spatial up-mixing respectively.

Another feature making a return is LG’s UVnano function. By integrating a UVC-LED light into the charging case, 99.9% of E. coli and S. aureus bacteria is killed after just five minutes of UVC exposure in the cradle for the FP9A and FP8A models.For additional hygiene, the new models also feature medical-grade ear gels.

The LG TONE Free FP9A, FP8A and FP5A wireless earbuds will be available in charcoal black at major retailers and LG online from October 2021.

The LG XBoom 360 portable speaker is designed for entertaining at home with its unique form factor and audio engineering that delivers omnidirectional sound. Featuring a Titanium tweeter, the speaker produces accurate and detailed treble dispersed in 360-degrees, while the glass fibre woofer and structure of the bass duct ensures rich dynamic bass.

Delivering up to 10 hours of listen time, users can select of one of three pre-set mood lighting options including ambient, nature and party. In addition, using the LG XBoom companion app, users can access customisable sound effects, including DJ Effect for the mixing of multiple samples, scratching and other sound effects. For increased mobility, the speaker has an easy grip handle.
