Description: This passage is mainly about lg tone active. In this passage, the writer does an unboxing of the LG tone active plus, and the writer introduces the actual functions of the LG tone active plus.
I’m John Tsuzuki, and today we’re going to be opening up the tone active Plus by LG, which is released towards the end of August, I receive it today, it’s a Bluetooth headset, and it’s for extreme fitness as it says there, I don’t know if you can see that, but it’s got external speakers.
It’s water-resistant obviously, so it has an activity tracker as well on the back, it has a diagram and a couple of pictures in it, some statements says that it has a qualcomm HD compatible LG tone and talk, which is cool.
It’s got different connections, so you can do two pairs of connections Auto reconnect, there are a whole bunch of things what I like about these styles, and I have the original tones as well, tone actives have the retractable head pieces, so sometimes I’m out there working on something out at somebody’s house, or in a business where I’m at, and I like to have music going and can’t keep music there and then let it hang.
We’re not supposed to drive with that stuff, so it gets weird having to pull stuff around, today I’m going to be reviewing and unboxing the tone active plus, it says definitive style evolved audio rugged durability, these are the newest version of the tone actives.
This is the tone active plus, it comes out about roughly a month and a half ago, I think towards the end of August, and I have the original tone actives, I love them, they’re very durable, an additional feature that they have is that it has an external stereo speaker, which it seems that those grates are on the top, I don’t know if you can see that, if it autofocuses.
Those look like the speakers, which the original tone actives don’t have, what I love about the tone active series is that it has the retractable earbuds, so when I go to the gym or when I’m out working, when I’m doing anything, I can pull them out quickly, pull on them and it retracts up.
I’m not looking around for head earbuds or worrying about them getting caught on anything, so that’s very cool, so we’re going to go ahead and get into this, and see what happens with it, so it comes in a nice box, and I’m going to sit a little bit to the side, it says LG life’s good.
It’s a standard black box which tells us compatibilities, and it seems that there’s some paperwork immediately and some more paperwork and junk such as some earbuds and replacement. I don’t know what these are, they look like the pieces that go towards where the earbuds are, maybe they are a protector and a USB cable and the headsets.
It is a nice blue-black tone, which seems to an on and off switch, here is a telephone switch, here are volume rockers, here is the charging port on the left side, then on the right side it has this HD rocker, turns the speaker on and off, that’s what it would be.
Then fast-forward for wine there, and it’s a play and pause button, so this is a play and pause, this one is purely for phone functions Siri, I don’t remember what their version is, but that’s what it looks like to me.
So I’m going to go ahead and get this paired up quickly, and we’re going to test this out, so give me one moment, so I’ve turned my Bluetooth on, and we can tell that we have the LG HBS a 100 s, that is the name of this particular headset.
We’re going to click on that, I don’t have to click anything on the actual headset to get it paired, so that’s very cool, and we’re going to wait for it to set up, and I feel it is buzzing, I know that it’s set up, and we’re going to go to Pandora.
Now I’ve got a degree that’s related a lot to the audio, and I also run a little bit of a studio out of my home, so below the camera here, I have a KSM 44 microphone with a chaotic ax eyeball attached to it, and that is being fed via XLR, and I remember the name of this is the h4n.I did a review on it not too long ago.
So what we’re going to do is that I’m going to listen to it in my ears, I’m going to play it with the speakers, and I’m also going to keep it in the earbuds, and put it in front of the microphone, so you can get a sense of how loud they are, and then you can make your decision on whether you like them or not.
So I’m going to play a little bit of NF, who is a Christian rapper, he’s interesting, so we can see that I’m on Pandora, it’s got Andy Mineo, I don’t know how his name is pronounced, so this is vendetta, I’m going to put both headsets in, wait for some bass sounds, there’s a little bit of fuzziness on the top end.
I don’t know if that’s an effect from the song, not a lot of bass in that, so by Triple E off the rise album, it’s got that, I’d say probably average bass, it’s not punchy bass but you can definitely feel the bass a little bit sounds, which seems that it’s in the mid area, it is very good.
The high area is very good until it gets to the top, and it seems that it crinkles a little bit, not a very powerful amplifier, but it sounds good, and if I have smaller earbuds maybe, when I pushing them in, it sounds a lot better with the bass.
So I’m going to pull it off, and put the headset here, that is about two and a half three inches away from the microphone, and now I’m going to turn on it, I am going to turn the speakers on, so make sure it’s volumed all the way up, this is full capacity from the iPad, it’s not very loud.
I’d say that if you are driving in a car or you have got out of the gym, maybe you still want to listen to the song, flip it to this or you don’t want to reach into your pocket, you are talking to somebody on the phone, you can flip it to this, and have it on speakerphone, so that’s cool.
This is the first time that I’ve had a headset that has those little speakers. I don’t know how much I’d use it, but I like its audio, it’s not bad and it’s very comparable to my other tone Actives, which is the original tone Actives.
I’d say that I definitely recommend these at a lower price than what the standard is, which is $180, I think there’s some other headsets that you may want to look at more thoroughly in regards to the sound quality, which you’re looking for.
But for me, I use this for listening while I’m working, while I’m driving I might listen to it, or have it in my ear to talk to somebody in my personal vehicle, it will work perfectly fine for me, I have got a discount on it, because I’m an employee of a company that sells these.
But I will say comfortably that if you can get it for about 125 to 140 range, I’d say it’s definitely worth it, I don’t know if I’d pay $180 for it, but they’re in good quality, I mean they feel good obviously, and it has that retractable stuff, if you drive for a company, it may be truckers or something.
You may want to get something such as this, because it will be beneficial for you, because it’s quick and easy not to have to fumble around with anything, but I’d give it a solid, I’d say six out of ten.
So if you like this article, leave a comment and share, let me know what your thoughts are, let me know if you want to know about any other headsets or any other particular devices, and I’ll make an article about it. Thank you.
