A vital part of my daily attire are my headphones. Leaving the home and having to walk through the NYC streets and get through a workout without an Audible book or music playlist is pretty close to a nightmare. (Oooo + here’s a link to try Audible now and get a FREE Audiobook! – I’m addicted)
But I need the headphones to do a few things: have uber clear sound, pick up calls, look stylish, and not get in my way. When LG reached out to me about the new LG Tone Infinim, I was intrigued since they go around your neck vs dangling from your ears. AND they are also Bluetooth enabled. Immediately that caught my attention since they won’t get in the way and I don’t have to worry about plugging them into my phone. But there’s more…
My favorite feature is the quality of sound. Since I have been using this headset my friends have complained more when I am talking directly into my cell phone – meaning that the sound is much more clear when using the LG Tone Infinim. Seriously? Normally it’s the opposite.
Since they also wrap around my neck, I feel that my hands are free to do whatever they need to do without worrying that they will tangle up in the wires. I’m one of those go-hards in the gym on the stepmill that walks sideways and backwards, and I cannot stand having to worry about coordinating my steps AND making sure my headphones don’t pop out of my ears.
When a call comes in, the entire device also vibrates. Sometimes I like to have the Bluetooth enabled so the device is on, but I don’t want the earbuds in (like when I’m at work expecting a personal call). But the vibration alerts me vs the sound since I generally have my phone on silent anyways. There are buttons on the inside of the headset that quickly pull in the wires of the earbuds or allow you to pull them out to place in your ears.
So besides my commentary – here are the specifics right from LG.

Out of all the specs above, I want to highlight the talk and music listening time. I don’t even have to charge this headset once a week. Also, every time you turn the headset on, they notify you about the battery level (high, medium, low) so you know when you need to hook them up to a charger.
I’ve been testing the LG Tone Infinim headset out for a solid month before writing this post – I like to give technology reviews a good amount of time to ensure they are the real deal – and I really love them! I literally use these every single day. It doesn’t matter if I am walking to the train, doing laundry, or at the gym – they fit perfectly into my lifestyle.
To learn more or purchase your own – head on over the the LG website. And, as usual, I was provided with this headset in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
Do you use headphones or a headset everyday?
