LG has announed today that it will unveil its most premium addition to the TONE Series of Bluetooth headsets at MWC 2016 in Barcelona. The new TONE Platinum is stylish headset and boasts of superior audio quality through a partnership with Harmon Kardon.
LG has adopted the Balanced Armature design as the sound module for the latest TONE Platinum model to minimize distortion. The design is usually reserved for high-end wired earphones. In addition, its aluminum earphone housing helps deliver a more sophisticated sound performance, as stated by LG.
The headset features aptX HD Audio Codec to deliver CD-like quality audio over Bluetooth that faithfully reproduces the full audio bandwidth and minimizes latency by significantly reducing the bit rate without affecting sound quality. The premium headset also offers noise canceling dual microphones for clearer calls even in the noisiest environments, claims LG.
The TONE Platinum’s sleek aluminum finish adds a premium look and feel to the device while its ergonomic design allows users to wear the headset for hours without discomfort. To further enhance convenience, LG added Voice Command to handle incoming calls just by voice while the Tone & Talk app has been enhanced to support Voice Memo and Find Me via any Android smartphone (version 4.1 and higher).
“The LG TONE Platinum is a showcase of innovative technologies that aims to deliver premium sound quality in a form-factor that millions of customers have come to embrace,” said Michael Park, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices Business Division at LG Electronics. “LG’s TONE offerings are second to none in the wireless Bluetooth world which is a key growth area for our mobile business.”
LG will roll out the latest premium Bluetooth headset in the United States in March, followed by other key markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America. Visitors to Mobile World Congress can see this device at LG’s booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from February 22-25.
