LG launches self-cleaning wireless earbuds with Meridian Audio

Available in black or white, there are two new sets of LG Tone wireless earbuds on the way, the LG HBS-FN6, £149, and the LG HBS-FN4, £99, with both due on sale in the United Kingdom from 6th July. The new LG Tone Free models are expected to go on sale in Europe and the United States next month, while availability for other regions - including LG's home market of South Korea - hasn't been announced yet. The latter features an industry-first self-cleaning charging case that uses LGs UVnano to kill bacteria as the earbuds recharge. And at least one of the new LG Tone Free earbuds goes to the trouble of cleaning up after itself.

The HBS-FN6 also includes a UVnano charging case, which LG claims can eliminate "99.9 per cent of E. coli and S. aureus from the non-toxic, hypoallergenic silicone ear gel and inner mesh".

The new self-sterilizing earbuds utilise a "canal-type" design which the company says has a more comfortable fit than the "semi-open" earlier model.

The HBS-FN6 feature Meridian Audio technology in collaboration, for what LG claims will deliver "lifelike audio" and "an extra dimension courtesy of Headphone Spatial Processing technology".

Both Tone Free models feature customized EQ settings and four presets - Natural, Immersive, Bass Boost and Treble Boost. The cases give the buds an additional 12 hours of play time. On a single charge, both earbuds deliver about six hours of playback. A byproduct of the new look is that the FN6 and FN4 look more like AirPods than their predecessor did, but that's not a bad thing.

The HBS-FN6 and HBS-FN4 come in Stylish Black and Modern White colors, and they'll debut in July in both the USA and Europe. However, we've reached out to LG for more details, and we'll update this article when we hear back from the company.
