Is one Bluetooth stereo headset different from another, or are they mostly the same, with a very thin line separating each other? LG thinks otherwise, touting that their latest LG Tone+ Bluetooth stereo headset is able to deliver a far superior call experience over 4G networks compared to the rest. Going by the model number HBS-730, the LG Tone+ will continue where the LG Tone left off, where it now supports VoLTE (Voice over LTE) calls so that you are able to carry out conversations in High Definition (HD) sound between VoLTE-capable devices.
Paul Bae, Vice President of Marketing Center of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said, “LG was the world’s first company to demonstrate VoLTE technology and announce a VoLTE smartphone. And today, we are still at the forefront of efforts to advance the commercialization of VoLTE as a follow up to the global expansion of LTE. In order to provide our customers with a superior user experience over 4G networks, LG will continue to raise the bar on all its mobile products, including accessories that support LTE and VoLTE.”
We do know that MetroPCS is the first carrier to offer VoLTE service in the world, so you might want to pick up the LG Tone+ if you’re a subscriber to that carrier. This stereo Bluetooth headset is said to adopt a professional grade audio codec, where it delivers CD-quality sound by automatically fitting high capacity audio data to the available bandwidth while transmitting.
Talk and standby times of the LG Tone+ have also seen an increase to 15 and 500 hours, respectively. No idea on pricing, but you can choose from blue-black and white-pearl color options.
