LG’s Innovative UV Earbuds Offer Even More Features
Including Spatial Processing, 3D Sound Stage and Whispering Mode
SEOUL, July 26, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) is updating its true wireless stereo listening experience with the announcement of the new 2021 LG TONE Free FP9 and FP8 earbuds. Ideal for those who lead active, high-energy lifestyles, the newest LG TONE Free models feature several enhancements to complement the already comfortable in-ear fit, advanced Meridian-tuned sound, powerful active noise cancellation and hygiene-boosting UVnano charging case.
With fit and comfort top priorities for the LG TONE Free lineup, LG collaborated with a leading ergonomic design technology lab to analyze hundreds of subjects’ ears, resulting in Arc Design with an earbud stem 4.4 millimeters shorter than on previous models to create the perfect balance and fit for an active lifestyle.1 And because the FP9 and FP8 are IPX4 rated, both earbuds can be worn without worry during hard workout sessions or in the rain.
New to LG TONE Free lineup is Headphone Spatial Processing from Meridian Audio which envelops the listener with sound that seems to originate from all directions. Another new enhancement is 3D Sound Stage, which expands the sound stage via spatial up-mixing to bring users more lifelike audio for a more captivating listening experience. With larger, upgraded drivers and diaphragms featuring silicone edging allowing for more flexibility and movement, the new TONE Free models now deliver more powerful bass without compromising clarity or detail.
With three microphones in each earbud, the new FP9 and FP8 offer a better calling experience by making the user’s voice clearer and with less intrusive ambient noise getting in the way. New Whispering Mode allows for greater call privacy and clarity, allowing users to hold the right earbud close to their mouths as a dedicated microphone, the perfect solution for making and taking calls in environments such as a library or crowded subway.
Active noise cancelling on both new TONE Free earbuds eliminates low-frequency sounds that can’t be completely blocked by the passive noise cancellation eartips. The microphones on the earbuds listen for ambient noises and neutralize them by producing identical sound waves that are inaudible to the listener, leaving just soundwaves from the music or podcast to enjoy.
Again with the industry’s only auto-cleaning UVnano charging case to keep the eartips clean to reduce the chance of inner ear infections, the UV-C LED built into the TONE Free cases is tested to reduce bacteria on the earbuds’ speaker mesh by 99.9 percent in just five minutes when charging wired or wirelessly.2 For additional hygiene, both new models also feature medical-grade, hypoallergenic ear gels to reduce the risk of skin irritations in the ear canal.3
LG’s newest TWS earbuds now deliver greater user convenience with wider compatibility, simpler connectivity and maximum durability. LG FP9 and FP8 can quickly and easily pair with a wide range of devices including Windows PCs and laptops while FP9 with Plug & Wireless enables the charging case to double as a wireless dongle, especially handy on airplanes. By plugging the case into a smartphone, gaming console, or other compatible device via USB-C to AUX cable, users can experience both complete freedom and low-latency sound.4
For longer enjoyment and extended on-the-go convenience, LG’s new earbuds guarantee exceptional battery life, delivering up to 10 hours of playback time between charges for a total of 24 hours of usage when used with the charging case. And with quick charge, five minutes in the case equates to one full hour of listening, perfect for those times when you forget to charge the night before. For listeners who want wireless charging, LG TONE Free FP8 has that covered.
Paired with the TONE Free app, LG’s newest earbuds deliver even more capabilities with access to an equalizer, Ambient Sound mode, touch control customization and Find My Earbuds to help locate either earbud when lost or misplaced. The app also features LAB, where users can access special settings such as Whispering Mode and Game Mode.
The new LG TONE Free FP series will be available starting this month in key markets in a range of sophisticated colors such as Charcoal Black, Pearl White and Haze Gold.

I registered this account literally because I am frustrated with you LG. I need you to change because I'm tired of buying other devices to replace features you have promised and not delivered.
I really want to use your OS and apps on my TV but you make it too hard. The user experience for navigation and writing is terrible. This has to improve or I won't use it. I will not spend my time on this when it's much easier on other systems, but I want to use your system. Please help me and your other customers.
On any device, it should be very easy to type
* a password to connect the TV to a wireless network
* search terms when browsing apps on the app store and in other search engines on the device
To be clear, I really tried to figure this out on my own before coming here but found it too difficult to give them another chance. I used the onscreen keyboard and ThingQ app.
The first problem is extreme. Absolutely extreme. Using the onboard keyboard to write in the wifi password is a nightmare. I have secure passwords that are long and which combine upper and lower case characters and special characters. I will NOT lower my security in order to make it easier to use your keyboard. The problem is on your end so you fix this.
There's something in this for you too, LG: Letting us connect by WiFi is undoubtedly going to be the most preferred option for most users, regardless of how technical they are, and it is definitely the biggest barrier to your app store having any chance of success. You won't get users if people can't connect and download apps.
Right now my options are
* suffer through this user experience of using the onscreen keyboard
* making my wifi password less secure
* using the Apple TV instead
I'm going for the Apple TV instead, and I bet your customers are doing the same. It's time to look into why they do this.
The second problem is also really serious. Typing in any search word using the onscreen password is in fact also too painful. Using the ThinQ app with the cursor did not make things easier. I honestly don't know why you chose to put a cursor in this app instead of letting me navigate with buttons like on a TV remote controller but it's unpleasant. Very unpleasant. I don't think of my TV as a computer and neither should you. The cursor is an unwanted and poor choice for navigation on a TV screen. Stick to navigation keys: up, down, left, right. User test it and see for yourself. People will NOT prefer the cursor over navigation keys.
Again, this also impacts usage of your other services, so if you want people to use them you need to make this easier. Please.
Here's how you stack up right now to the competition. My alternative device right now is an Apple TV and it makes this much easier. I reckon a Roku and Chromecast do similar magic, at least I recall Chromecast being wonderful on an older Android 4 device I had years ago.
When setting up the Apple TV I can choose to connect to it with my smartphone immediately using their apps. I don't know if it's on bluetooth or something else but it's not wifi and it works well. Once connected I can use my keyboard on the smartphone to write input for the TV and connect it to my WiFi and search within apps for my favourite TV shows, movies and the list goes on.
This makes it much easier to search and of course to paste in passwords from my phone to the TV.
In my case I have a password bank called Bitwarden. Other users probably have at least the built-in password managers from Apple and Google.
You want me to be able to do the same on your LG TV but the aforementioned reasons are why that's never going to happen. Never. Until you change this I will not give your OS another chance.
Here's my recommendation:
Similar to Apple you should have an app for setting up the TV that connects over bluetooth. WiFi is not an option. Remember that we want to use our phones to type in the WiFi password since it is easier and it will let us copy paste in passwords from our phones.
What options are there for this? I bet bluetooth is an option amongst others. Please figure this out.
My biggest hope is that you will actually do some user research: Make prototypes and test them with real people. Ask them to try to use your apps and listen to their feedback. Ask them if they can connect to WiFi, why not if they can't, and listen to what they say.
User research is cheap and it works. Please do it.
I got 2 LG smart TV's running Software Version 06.00.15 and after this update WiFi has stopped working and the WiFi in both TV's will only stay connected when I am in All settings-->Network-->Wi-Fi Connection and the TV's are also feeling really slow in the menu but the moment I plug in a ethernet cable and disable WiFi everything works and the menu is smooth so I believe there is something up with this software version.
I have a iPhone 12 Pro Max, Laptop and some other devices on WiFi no issues at all.
The TV in the living room is a LG 49UJ701V the one in my bed room is a LG 55UK6100PLB.
Anyone got a suggestion I can try? I do not want to reset them because I do not want to calibrate them both again it's a pain.
