About the LG TONE Ultra a™ HBS-830

Neckband earbuds built for convenient hands-free calls 

These days wireless earbuds are used as much for phone calls as they are for music listening. I'll often hop on conference calls or Skype meetings using my Bluetooth headphones — leaving my hands free to take notes or complete other tasks. The LG TONE Ultra a™ HBS-830 wireless headset offers clear phone calls and a convenient twist on the popular neckband earbud design.

Neckband earbuds built for convenient hands-free calls 

These days wireless earbuds are used as much for phone calls as they are for music listening. I'll often hop on conference calls or Skype meetings using my Bluetooth headphones — leaving my hands free to take notes or complete other tasks. The LG TONE Ultra a™ HBS-830 wireless headset offers clear phone calls and a convenient twist on the popular neckband earbud design.

You take calls and listen to music wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth. And LG's nifty retractable wire management system keeps them out of your way when not in use.

How the retractable wire system works

The left and right earbuds hide inside the neckband, and you can pull them out when you're ready to use them. They are each attached by a cord, but the ultra-slim band actually rests on your collar area, so your head moves around more freely while you talk or listen. After you're done, give the earbuds a light tug until you have no more slack, and the retractable cords will zip back into place.   

Dual mic system for extra clarity

The LG TONE Ultra a headset has two microphones built into the neckband. These small but powerful mics are designed and positioned to pick up your voice over wind and background noise. So even when you're on the go, you can keep your phone tucked away and carry on a clear conversation.

Features

Overview: The LG TONE Ultra α Bluetooth wireless stereo headset (HBS-830) is equipped with a lightweight neckband with retractable ear buds, making it easy to listen while on-the-go. It is also compatible with many of LG's Bluetooth-enabled Smart TVs, so you can listen to your favorite programs without disturbing others. The headset comes with two pairs of interchangeable ear tips, and a USB charging cable.

Bluetooth 5.0: The LG TONE Ultra α features Bluetooth version 5.0 (2402-2480 MHz range), and is compatible with A2DP, AVRCP, HSP, and HFP profiles.

Retractable Ear Buds: The headset is equipped with retractable ear buds. When you're ready to listen, just grasp each ear bud and gently pull. Each ultra-thin cable is approximately 9" in length and locks into place. When you're finished, give each ear bud a gentle tug and release, and the cable retracts back into the neckband. This keeps the cable managable and tangle free. The ear buds feature Advanced Quad-Layer Speaker technology for high-quality, balanced audio reproduction with less distortion.

Neckband: The LG TONE Ultra α has a flexible neckband that holds the Bluetooth receiver and rechargeable battery. Dual MEMS microphones are located on the neckband for clear voice communications. The controls are located on the left side of the neckband, and include power, music controls (next and previous track), phone controls (answer/end call), and volume controls. The neckband also has a USB port for charging the battery with the included Micro-USB cable. Neckband dimensions: 5.7" width, 6.7" length, and 0.7" height.

Battery: The built-in 3.7-volt 210mAh Lithium-ion polymer battery powers the headset for up to 13 hours of talk time, and 15 hours of music playback time. Standby time is up to 15 days. The battery charges via USB in approximately 2 hours (at rated input: DC 4.75V - 5.3 V, 400mA).

LG Tone & Talk: The LG TONE Ultra α is compatible with the LG Tone & Talk app which provides additional features. Tone & Talk can read SMS, MMS, Wechat, and messages from Messenger and SNS applications. The app also lets you view the battery status of the headset, change the settings for notifications (including vibrations), and change the voice prompt language, It also provides guidance for headset button functions. LG Tone & Talk is available for iOS (8.0 or later) and Android (4.4 and up) devices.
