LG HBS-FN4 Black Customer Reviews

HBS-FN4 Black
LG TONE Free HBS-FN4 Bluetooth® Wireless Stereo Earbuds with Meridian Audio (Black)
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome sound I've owned several types of ear buds from low end to high end. I was shocked at how much bass came out of these. I truly impressed with the sound quality and ease of connection. My daughter even connected them to her iPhone. There were definitely a great purchase. The battery life was ok, they lasted about 2 hrs which is about standard, for ear buds, I didn't tell any difference with the ambient sound feature, my daughter stated she thought it was difference. I guess it depends on what your listening pleasure is. I honestly tune everything out when I'm listening to music regardless...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound I was excited to try these and they didnt disappoint. They are lightweight, they fit in my ear perfectly and dont fall out when I move. They are comfortable to wear and didnt make my ears hurt if I wore them for a longer period of time. The battery life is really good and I love how it let's you know the amount of charge left on the earbuds and or the charging case when you connect to it. The 2 earbuds are magnetic so when you remove them from your ear you can stick them to each other to keep track of them both if you cant put them in the case right away. The case is very light and compact and easily fits into a pocket or purse with very little space needed. The sound quality is really good I was worried that it might not be on a cheaper pair of earbuds but it was definitely really good sound. I love how you can use the ambient sound function if you need to be able to still hear what's going on around you but dont want to have to keep the music way down or only use one earbud to hear youre surroundings. It's something I would use if I'm listening to music while jogging down the street or maybe if at work but you have to be able to hear customers or fellow employees. It's simply to turn that function on and off with just a touch of the earbud and a short hold on it. I really liked everything about it but there was 1 con that I found and im not sure if theres a way to fix it because it's a feature that's useful when needed but annoying if you're not trying to use it and that is the tap to pause. If my hair falls on the earbud with any kind of pressure it pauses the music. If I try to adjust the earbud the music will pause and on pause over and over again until its situated. Its great feature to be able to tap the earbud and instantly pause the sound if uppity need it. I like to use my arbuds at night when everyone is sleeping to watch videos or listen to music, podcasts or ebooks and while laying down if I lay on my side or wanna prop my head on my hand it pauses. I wish that was different but it's a minor issue and wont stop me from using them I just cant lay on my side,or touch my ears in any fashion while using them if I want uninterrupted sound.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacks depth, bluetooth quality issues These buds sound good for watching videos and music focusing on vocals. However, as soon as there is a lot going on instrumentation-wise or the low end is needed they struggle. There is a decent amount of Bluetooth sound floor hum as well. Another glaring problem I had is that on certain devices the sound quality is just awful and full of noise. On my LG G8X and Note10+ they sound fine but on my Motorola Edge and iPhone XR they sound way too muddy, and the ToneFree app does not help. I've tried disabling all types of audio enhancements and changing the Bluetooth encoding method to no success. Lastly, the ear tips have smelled horrible since they were first opened and no amount of cleaning helps, it appears to be the material itself just reeks.
