LG has announced that its latest truly wireless (or TWS) earbuds are now available to buy in the United States. These Tone Free devices are tuned by Meridian Audio and have a unique UVnano charging case. It also adds up to 21 hours' worth of playback to the LG earbuds.
Deirdre O Donnell,

LG's newest form of TWS earbuds were originally launched in South Korea during October 2019. They were called the Tone+ Frees then; however, they have been rebranded to "Tone Free" for the US market. Nevertheless, they still offer the build quality (IP4X ingress-rating included), "multi-layer metal speakers" and Meridian Audio-enhanced sound from their initial launch.

These Tone Free buds are LG's first to have a charging case rather than a complementary neck-band holder, and are thus the OEM's answer to the Apple AirPods, Amazfit PowerBuds and Huawei FreeBuds of the world. However, they are most like the Sony WF-1000XM3s in terms of form-factor. Their case (which looks most like that of the FreeBuds 3) features UVnano technology, which treats the ear-tips with UV radiation to curb bacterial growth as they charge.

This case also offers up to 21 hours of Tone Free use, which support up to 6 hours of playback themselves. LG also claims that only 5 minutes of charging results in the addition of 1 hour of battery life. The LG Tone Free TWS earbuds are now available on lg.com for a price of US$199.99.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
