LG Electronics (LG) will unveil its newest LG TONE INFINIM (HBS-910) headsets at CES 2016. The around-the-neck wireless headset has a more contemporary design and superior audio quality.

As the successor to the HBS-900, the new TONE INFINIM inherits the previous model's main strengths such as the retractable earbud function and Harmon/Kardon audio quality. It also features upgraded Quad-Layer Speaker Technology for premium audio experience with better balance across all sound ranges. The frequency response ratio has been enhanced to produce richer bass and crisper high notes.

Dealing with noisy environments such as crowded subways or city streets are no challenge for the new TONE INFINIM with its new dual cancelling microphones, allowing users to conduct calls in any environment. Along with the new HBS-910, LG is updating its free TONE & Talk Android app with two new features — Voice Memo and Find Me — that allow TONE INFINIM customers to record their own voice notes and help locate misplaced smartphones.

"The original TONE INFINIM set a new standard for wireless headset design," said Chung Sue-hyun, VP of Innovative Personal Devices Business Division at LG Electronics. "We delivered an audio solution that offered days of battery life, a comfortable fit that didn't fall off the neck when unused and most importantly, fantastic sound. It's no wonder the LG TONE INFINIM series is the most copied design in this product category."


Consumer availability in the US will begin in February, with key markets in Asia and Europe to follow soon after.
