What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall good model in the Tone family. Pros: Great sound. Great base. Very secure fit all-around. Retractable ear buds. Cons: Limited to bright orange as a color selection for now. The size is much smaller than the other Tone models, which is still comfortable but takes some getting used to. Fewer buttons = multiple functionality for each control which = more to memorize per button. Unable to fast forward and rewind, as with other models. The price is fair, but considering that the sound quality of the Pro model in my opinion is just as good, it almost seems like the extra $50-60 mostly goes towards the retractable ear buds (more of a $20-30 feature in my opinion). I would definitely recommend them to anyone who's a fan of the LG TONE. For those who had performance issues with theirs, I can only assume they either received defective headsets or that there were compatibility issues with their connected devices because despite my gripes, my headset works great. The issues I mentioned could've made a very good headset a great headset. August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Value, Quality and Comfort This is one of the better BT headsets I have used. Several things stand out. 1. It's very comfortable to wear longer than normal neck based devices. 2. It's very durable and love the IP ratings for sweat/water resistance. 3. Multi-point and digital call/noise suppression. 4. Cost effective device. 5. Noise filters of the outside noise. Great device over all with good functionality and style. August 13, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Big Letdown I've had my HBS 700's for 2 years now. I love the sound, deep rich base and clarity. They are like wearing skull candy's that are bluetooth. I wear them so much I finally wore out the ear but wiring. So today I was excited to go get new headphones that fit my neck better with retractable buds. I had been wanting the HBS-850's for 2 months and today was the day. I bought them, connected them and turned them on. *** Talk about a let down. *** Sure it has clear treble, but NO BASS! I tried a second pair, same thing. I tried other models, same thing. It's almost like listening to mono. I adjusted the EQ on my phone, same thing. I adjusted the EQ on the headphones and I couldn't hardly tell a difference. What happened to this incredible product line??? August 11, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Left earphone dies I am on my second pair of LG tone actives. The fist. Pair had the left earphone die on me on my second run with them. I promptly exchanged them at the AT&T store. The new pair lasted about a week and a half and then the same left ear went out again. I can faintly hear music out of it while the right one seems to be going at high volume. I do sweat a lot while I am running but my previous versions of LG Tones didn't seem to have any issues like this. I have owned numerous pairs of LG Tones in the past. The best ones are the HBS 700 and the HBS 730. The HBS 750 had an issue where they would randomly mute my conversation and now the HBS 850s seem to have issues with loosin power to the left ear. This is completely unacceptable for a set of headphone marketed as active and sweat resistant. LG's quality seems to be going downhill. August 9, 2015

When using this blue tooth does it have noise cancellation. Does it say who is calling and can you answer with your voice or do you need to push a button to answer or ignore a call?

Answer: 
The LG TONE Active™ Premium Wireless Stereo Headset, Model # HBS-850 does not have the Ambient Noise Cancellation feature and it will vibrate and to alert you of an incoming call but does not announce who is calling nor does it have Caller ID. Calls can be answered or rejected by briefly pressing the call button...^IFV

What is the roaming range of this device? In other words, how far away can I be from my device and still hear clear sound with this headset? There is no information about this on any of your LG Tone products from what I have seen...very important information to include in the Specs list to help your customers make an informed decision and avoid disappointment.
