LG Tone HBS-700 Bluetooth review
Okay guys I recently ordered these on Amazon since I was in need of Bluetooth headphones. It has 4.5/5 stars on Amazon and for only $50, it wouldn't hurt to try them. Starting off, I really liked the packaging. It was love at first sight
When taken out, these headphones look really really good.
These has a unique design. They headphones are attached to the band that stays around your neck. Just pull them out the socket and put them in your ear. When you're done, put them back in the socket, which connects with a magnet that's on the back part of the ear buds.
They have controls that work well with the phone. They have Play/Pause, Volume Up/Down, Next/Previous and a phone button
The headset itself has its own volumes. You can set the volume for the headset and if its not loud enough or too loud, you can also make it louder or less louder with the volume button on the phones. There is also a bass booster feature that enables when you hold down Volume up and down at the same time and it sounds good for Bluetooth headphones. The only control that doesn't seem to work right is the fast forward/rewind button. It says to hold down the next/previous button to do this. The headphones itself makes the noise that makes it seem like its doing it but the song continues at normal speed. Not a deal breaker. I tried this with Google Music so it might be different with other players. It has a built in mic and I only made one call and the person said they heard me loud and clear. The headset will have its own notification to let you know about the call and the neck band actually vibrates which I think is cool
It comes with an app that reads the message but let me save another long block of text by simply saying: ICS=No Worky.
Another thing is when you have it on, the phone button works like voice commands. I have Vlingo on my phone and it only seems to work right with the In Car feature of Vlingo as everything with that is done by voice but I'm sure that's yet another battery hog.
Also when you pick it up, it feels very light and like it dangles so at first it felt like it could break easily but I'm sure its durable. The ear buds are also sweat proof and water resistant (Im sure read this in the description)
Okay sorry for the long review but I just wanted to get this out there for any one in search of a good Bluetooth set. I know us GNex users suffer battery issues but if you don't mind that or you have great battery life, I HIGHLY recommend these. These are some great Bluetooth ear buds and for $50 with how great it works and looks, you really can't go wrong. Hope this helped someone out there
