LG Electronics Tone Pro Bluetooth Stereo Headset

LG Electronics Tone Pro Bluetooth Stereo Headset Review

Introduction

LG stepped up with the Electronics Tone Pro after the 730 before it, or Tone +, which, in turn, was an upgrade for the Tone Ultra. Since the Tone + had met with mixed reviews, due partly to the disappointing noise-cancelling feature and partly to the unwelcome boost in price, the Tone Pro, or HBS-750, had to contend with correcting some of those issues before it could start with a clean slate.

LG is obviously trying to pass off the Tone Pro as the ultimate in hands-free audio accessory, but do their claims hold water? To get a clear picture, we need to delve into matters like the ergonomic design, the inline commands, the battery life, the connectivity, the responsiveness, the sound quality and the general look and feel of the headset, which are deemed top-notch. Frankly, we like what we see and we’re ready to share it with you.
