What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable! Great sound, and easy controls! I ordered the LG Force when I ordered my LGv40, (boo hoo! my v30+ was stolen!), and the play time, comfort, crystal clear voice calls give the competition a run! I especially like the flexible ear fit that makes it easy to work out in all positions without any friction, or soreness. I've been a long time fan of LG! Bring thuis product back to market!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried them all! This is hands down the best Bluetooth Fitness Earphone out. I use mine with Comply Foam Sports Core or TSX 200 Foam Tips and I only hear my music. This allowed me to intensely focus and have some of the best workouts I've had in months. There is no signal drop, It's very simple to pair with your choice device, No issues with sweat resistance... (just remember to close the charging port flap properly). Of the three sound signatures I find the Normal mode to be best to my sound preferences. The Sound quality is stellar as it uses the APT-X Bluetooth codec. Its almost as good as a wired headphone but most people won't be able to tell the difference. The battery life and sheer comfort of the HBS-S80 gets me through my workout with ease. I would hope that the next iteration of the HBS-S80 has APT-X HD and LDAC codecs, IP68 Dust/Water Resistance, and 12 hour battery life.

Hi I recently bought a pair of LG force headphones. I have used them 3 times and they have a permanent red light on even when not charging? They will not turn on anymore? Is this normal?

Asked by: Mickeyj
I just asked that same question,  the reply was: "This headset only works w/smart phones".  I personally wouldn't recommend this device.
