What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these headphones! Not sure why they are discontinued but I love them. I use the external speakers all the time. I can listen to my music while working out and still hear the radio for calls. The HD option is by far my favorite. From the reviews seems like they last about a year before problems..good thing I purchased the 2 year warranty after the original 1 year warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product doesn’t last. I brought these not even a year ago and they already continuously power on and off and disconnect and reconnect Bluetooth. It’s extremly aggravating when you are in the gym trying to workout. Very unhappy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from amazing but... So, I don't have any problem with fit, I have a pretty average neck and it fits lose enough. It stays on at 80mph on my motorcycle so... My only big complaint is that it has started to have volume inconsistencies when on earbud mode, I think the wires/speakers are wearing out and they are just over a year old... I don't use it for calls often but no one has ever complained. Possibly I just wore them out. :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from micrphone issues. this microphone on this device sucks . you can hear the caller clearly but they always have an issue hearing me .. i have asked few of my co workers if they have the same issues and they said yes .. that issue needs to resolve and that would be 100% perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm pleased... Like the title say's, " I'm pleased " and so far I am.The sound to is pretty good on par with some of the other devices that are really good, too many to list here. I have 3 pair 1 for running, 1 for yard work and the other is I gave to my wife. I purchased my first set almost a year ago I think. I decided to try because of the aptx ability. I currently use these with an iPhone X, LG G6 and Pixel 2. The G6 is my running phone and the iPhone is my main phone, Pixel I just play with. I'm using the A100 in a 10k road race 5/27/18 and it's supposed to rain so I think I'm going to wrap the main part in some plastic. I'm not to keen on the splash test that LG states in the website specs. So we'll see, but they are good to me.

I have had these since they were first released and love the external speaker. However, they are getting old and worn. Are there plans for an updated version?  I really love the external speaker option.

Hello Genaro7372, due to the magnets, it most likely would trigger a metal detector. ^AC

Need to know why when I'm talking with someone they can hear the back ground noise

Asked by: Coco48
Hello Coco48, sorry to hear about your experience. The HBS-A100 do not have noise cancelling and therefore depending on the volume of the background noise, the person your are talking to may be able to hear it. ^AC
