Many doctors advise against the use of in-ear headphones. Reason? Bacteria that accumulate on their surface, when inserted into the ear canal, can lead to its infection.
The solution to this problem is regular disinfection of the headphones, e.g. using ultraviolet light. For this purpose, you can buy a special sterilizer or … buy headphones, for which it is a key element of the equipment.
How does the disinfection of LG Tone Free FN7 headphones work?
It turns out otherwise than it may seem at first glance.
After opening the lid of the LG Tone Free FN7 charging case, its interior delights the user with an effective, blue backlight. This, however, has nothing to do with UV radiation. The manufacturer used ordinary LEDs, which had only a decorative function.
The ultraviolet light is activated for 10 minutes only after the case is closed and & hairsp; – & hairsp; note – only when it is connected to the power supply.
On the one hand, this solution makes sense because it saves energy. On the other hand, it significantly reduces the frequency of decontamination. LG declares over 20 hours of work on a single charge. If someone listens to music for an hour a day, Tone Free FN7 will be disinfected once every 3 weeks. Is it not too rare?
It is also not difficult to imagine a situation when someone drops headphones on the pavement or would like to pass them on to a friend. In theory, the sterilization function would allow the headphones to be tossed into the case for 10 minutes to get rid of the bacteria, but in practice this is not the case. There is no charger, no decontamination.
So I see light here waste of potential pretty cool feature. And yet it would be enough to add an optional sterilization function away from the charger, with the proviso that it increases energy consumption.
In terms of ease of use, the LG Tone Free FN7 delight and disappoint
The first contact with headphones is a miracle, honey and nuts. They use the Google protocol called Fast Pair. Just open the lid near the phone, and a pairing window will appear on its screen, suggesting that you download the LG Tone Free application.
It couldn’t be more user-friendly. The & hairsp; – & hairsp; application itself, though unpolished & hairsp; – & hairsp; is also great and allows you to configure the headphones for yourself with just a few clicks.
Considering how this type of detail is pampered, I am disappointed with the ergonomics of the headphones themselves.
There are small ones on the outside of the LG Tone Free FN7 tabs that respond to touch. They detect long presses as well as single, double and triple clicks, allowing you to activate noise reduction, pause and resume playback, switch tracks and adjust the volume. In theory, everything is great.
In practice, however, the touch-response area extends far beyond the aforementioned protrusions, co it drives me crazy. Whenever I just want to tweak the earpiece in my ear, I activate a random function because it detects clicks. Nightmare.
In most headphones I know, the touchpads are placed in a less invasive place, the function of detecting more pressure has been implemented or ordinary clickable buttons are used. Everything is better than what LG has done.
Fortunately, touchpads can be used completely disable in settingsbut this is only a partial solution to the problem. Then, however, all actions must be performed from the level of the phone or watch.
LG Tone Free FN7 sounds very well
LG boasts that the sound has been tuned by experts from the company Meridian. I was positively surprised by how versatile these headphones are able to generate.
In the & hairsp; – & hairsp; software, in addition to the & hairsp; – & hairsp; 4 predefined profiles. They sound completely different on each LG Tone Free FN7, but good on each. A nice springboard from most headphones up to PLN 500, which have a clearly bass profile, softening at any other settings.
I prefer bass sound, but in this field the LG Tone Free FN7 does not disappoint. The sound is fleshy, and at the same time clear and rich in details. These are one of the better-performing headphones in this price class.
No bad word can be said about noise reduction
When properly matched, the elastics themselves effectively isolate a lot of ambient noise, and the ANC technology effectively cuts off the rest.
LG Tone Free FN7 have an exceptionally a wide range of denoise frequencies. When walking down the street, they cope not only with the rumble of cars, but also & hairsp; – & hairsp; partially & hairsp; – & hairsp; voices of passersby.
It’s not 100 percent isolation, but active noise reduction does the job anyway.
However, the quality of the conversations is a thumbs down
As far as I heard my interlocutors very well, so much to you complained about the sound quality. LG Tone Free FN7 not only insulates the sounds of the environment poorly, but also amplifies them.
Aside from the fact that I was drowned out by passing cars during the conversations. There were, however, bizarre times when I pulled something out of my backpack and had to listen to complaints about crackling and rustling.
The challenge for LG headphones is also even light gusts of wind. So if someone is looking for headphones with hours of conversation in mind, he should look further.
The battery of LG Tone Free FN7 is average
According to LG, the headphones are expected to play continuously for 7 hours. But I’m talking about a scenario with ANC turned off with & hairsp; – & hairsp; I suppose & hairsp; – & hairsp; medium volume level.
With noise reduction turned on and the maximum volume, Tone Free FN7 worked for me through 4.5 hours. On the one hand, it is a satisfactory result for me, and on the other hand, it differs from what the competition can do. Cheaper FreeBuds 4i Huaweia take up to 8 hours with ANC and 10 without.
The case with the powerbank allows you to charge the headphones twice. It supports itself wireless chargingwhich is a nice bonus. Especially at a time when more and more phones support chargeback.
Is it worth buying LG Tone Free FN7?
A few months ago, the headphones started from a fairly high level of PLN 799, but at the time of writing this text, many stores are offering them for PLN 479. And that changes things.
In this price class, the very combination of good sound quality, ANC and wireless charging makes the LG Tone Free FN7 headphones. highly competitive. The built-in sterilization function is just the icing on the cake, but it’s a pity that its potential has been wasted.
They may not be the best headphones in the world, but they have something to defend themselves against.
