The era of wired earphones is seemingly behind us, though various models continue being released to the market to mixed reviews, according to the specific user’s (or reviewer’s) preference and choice when it comes to earphones.
Major global device vendors are competing against each other to develop and release to the market their best versions of wireless earbuds, with the models competing on such aspects as design and aesthetics; sound quality; ease of use and comfort when plugged on to one’s ears; and of course price.
But there’s more. When it comes wireless earbuds, one aspect (or feature) which has become a key consideration for users (just like in mobile phones) is the battery life and charging duration.
That’s why when LG Electronic’s R&D team was working on the brand’s LG TONE Free wireless earbuds – now available locally in two models, that is HBS-FN6 and HBS-FN4 – the duration the devices could last with a single charge was a key focus area.
The LG TONE Free wireless earbuds – which retail for between Kshs 15,000 to Kshs 21,000 from all LG brandshops, online brandshop and Hotpoint – are enabled with a fast charging feature. It’s worth noting that when fully charged, both models can provide up to 6 hours of continuous listening experience. And that’s not all. Another interesting feature is that just 5 minutes of charging can give a user up to one hour playtime.
Below are the key product specifications of the LG TONE Free Earbuds:

From the details shared above on the LG TONE Free Earbuds, we see that one is able to get a total of 5 hours of talk-time and 6 hours of continuous listening time when the user is on their phone or using any other appliance to supply the audio to the earbuds.
However, when the earbuds are left to recharge from their case, they can later be used for upto 18 hours without losing power. This means that with a single full charge from their case, the LG TONE Free Earbuds can later be used by a passenger travelling from Busia to Mombasa, a driving distance of 943 km. Or approximately 13 hours 47 minutes without running out of charge.
We this kind of battery life, we doubt if there’s a better travel companion for those who do inordinately long distances and durations on the road, while alone in their cars with no company apart from their mobile devices to catch up with family and friends and also listen to their favourite musical tracks apart from LG TONE Free earbuds. Why not order it from the LG online brandshop and have it delivered for free to your location?
