LG has announced its 2022 lineup of TONE Free wireless earbuds, the T90, T60 and TF8 which are slated for sale in September. LG says the top-of-the-range T90 pair are the “world’s first” wireless earbuds to carry Dolby Atmos audio and Dolby head tracking tech. All the new models promise to offer better-fitting designs and new features.
The Meridian Audio-driven T90 earbuds (pictured below) are now using larger drivers and graphene composition for improved bass response and more balanced sound, according to LG. There is also a built-in equalizer to deliver music so it sounds more like a live recording. Dolby’s head tracking technology recalibrates the sound as the listener moves his or her head, creating a feeling of immersion and being at the center of the action (not available on the T60).
All the models ship with the UVnano charging case, which uses UV-C light to help refresh the earbuds and kill bacteria on the eargels in 10 minutes during a powered charging cycle. These complement medical-grade, hypoallergenic ear gels for a more comfortable and irritation-preventing fit on the T90s. The charging case doubles as a Bluetooth transmitter with a voice chat function for calls and gaming. An included USB-C to AUX cable means the case can be plugged into a radio, treadmill or in-flight entertainment system. One charge delivers 9 hours of playback and the case can stretch that out to 27 hours.
The lightweight TONE Free Fit (TF8) earbud set is designed for running and training sessions and includes an ear-grip technology to keep them firmly in place during intense workouts. It includes spatial sound with Meridian HSP tech and is resistant to rain and splashes. For more information, visit LG.
