Designed in partnership with Meridian Audio, LG’s TONE Free FP8 true wireless earbuds offer a mix of welcome features and impressive performance. Affordably priced, with a 10-hour battery life and instant smartphone pairing over Bluetooth 5.2, these deliver a clear sound with voice calls and full-range clarity with music from their 8mm hybrid (silicon/Nomex) drivers. Active Noise Cancellation is effective, as is the FP8’s bass response, and the earbuds fit comfortably for long listening sessions. When not in use, they can be recharged in LG’s smart-looking UVNano case, which sanitises them via a UV LED for peace of mind. This is a forward-thinking design matching style with real substance.
