A New Release From LG: The Tone Ultra



As we know, LG is the first manufacturer that has released these neckband style headphones. These days, the company is coming with a new model on the market, called the new Tone Ultra.

Customers will be able to buy the new LG Tone Ultra at the price of 99 US dollars. But, we must say that this model is not better than the Tone Pro, which is available at the price of 70 dollars. This means that the new LG Tone Ultra doesn’t offer more power than the previous one.

So, this means that the company will have a hard mission to sell this new device, especially when there are other good alternatives on the market.

For example the JBL Reflect Mini BT is a good neckband headphone, which is available at the price of 100 US dollars.

But, there is a chance for customers to get this new headphone at an attractive price. For example, the new LG Tone Ultra is available on Amazon at the price of 65 dollars. The new neckband headphone is available in two colors, blue or black. Moreover, its design is very similar with other models from the Tone lineup.

It seems that the company insists on the flexible semicircular rubber neckband that has a thick arm attached. This arm is storing the two earpieces and their wires. Unfortunately, the new LG Tone Ultra is not sweat-resistant, which means that it isn’t recommended for runners or other athletes.

On the right arm of the headphone, customers will find a sliding switch that can be used for navigating tracks, and the play/pause button. On the other arm there is a volume slider and a call answer/end button.

Moreover, there is a micro USB port that can be used for charging and it is hidden behind a plastic door. To be added that on the left arm of the headphone, customers will also find a power switch and a pinhole microphone that let users make phone calls.

As for the earpieces, we must say that they are coming with a simple curved cylinder design that has an eartip on one end. The two earpieces are attached to the flexible arm through a 10-inch wire. The wire is thin and it retracts into the arm with a gently push. Inside the box, customers will find a short USB charging cable and one extra set of eartips.

These eartips have different sizes, which means that customers will be able to find their perfect fit. As for the battery life, the company claims that this new model can go up to 13 hours of use, but it depends on users’ volume levels.

Moving to the performance, we must say that the new LG Tone Ultra doesn’t come with a powerful bass. Moreover, this model is similar with the Tone Pro when it comes to bass response. As we know, the LG Tone Pro is available at the price of 53 dollars, which means that it is cheaper than the Ultra model.
