LG Tone Infinim (HBS-900) Headphones Review

LG Tone Infinim Bluetooth Headset comes with a slim, ergonomic design. These retractable earphones are quite flexible and light. Their ergonomics have got better as compared to Tone Ultra. The on/off slider is easier to toggle and volume and playback controls are way easier to use than the controls on the Tone Ultra. The retractable earbuds are a special feature of these headphones as they stay in place for hours and offer comfortable fit.

Let’s explore its features:

The overall design of LG Tone Infinim may not appeal to everyone. These headphones sit around the neck and its retractable cables extend up to ears. These are a secure fit that eliminates tangled cables. The eartips fit well on their own and are also free of the pull of gravity on long cables. The left side houses Volume controls that work together with your phone’s volume controls. On the left side, there is also a call answer/end button and the micro USB connection. On the right side, a single Play/Pause button is on the top and along the outside, is a sliding track navigation control.

Wrapping Up

The ease of use and convenience of this headset are the positives. Also, the voice prompt feedback about the battery level and connection status is another plus. The main highlight of this headphone is the retractable earbuds. It has a great build quality and use of on-board controls is amazing.

On the other hand, tone Infinim rigid neck band may not always liked by users. Also, it is more expensive than the Tone Ultra (HBS-800).
