    Overview of the TWS headset LG Tone Free HBS-FN6

    Hygiene concerns a considerable part of users of in-ear headphones – after all, ear pads are placed directly in the ear canal, various kinds of pollution accumulate on them … Plus, recently, due to all known events, relevance disinfection of everything and everything has become a global trend. Against this backdrop, LG is very timely to launch a range of earbuds with a UVnano charging case equipped with UV emitters that treat the in-ear part of the earbuds. Today we will get acquainted with one of these models.

    Obviously, there are a number of reasons to treat such functions with some skepticism. Fortunately, this is not the only way LG Tone Free can attract a potential consumer. The headset is quite pleasing in appearance, comfortable, has a good management software… And most importantly – it has a very interesting sound, created in collaboration with a longtime partner of LG – a well-known and reputable company Meridian Audio. At one time, we highly appreciated the LG XBoom AI ThinQ column created together with her, now it’s time for headphones. Let’s jump ahead a bit and note that the positive influence of British specialists is clearly visible this time as well.

    Packing and contents

    The headset is delivered in a white cardboard box with a removable lid, on the surface of which an image of the device and its brief characteristics are printed. Inside, the case with headphones and accessories are secured with cardboard inserts and a plastic cradle.

    The package includes the headphones themselves in a case, a USB-USB Type C charging cable 1 meter long, documentation and two pairs of interchangeable ear pads (another one is installed on the headphones). The white cable bundled with the black headset is a little bewildering, but these are trifles …

    In the description of the headphones, the manufacturer emphasizes that the ear pads are made of “hypoallergenic medical grade silicone. ” It is quite difficult to verify this statement, but they look nice, and they are comfortable to use.

    Design and construction

    At the time of writing the headset was available in two colors: black and white, we had the first option for testing. The manufacturer also announced optional charging cases in bright colors: yellow, red, green, blue…

    In bright colors, the case becomes just very similar to macaroons, it all looks very interesting – lovers of original accessories will surely like it. In black, the shape of the famous cookie is also quite noticeable, but the resemblance is not so obvious. The model name is printed on the top cover.

    The front panel has a recess for opening the lid, and under it is a small LED charging indicator.

    On the left side there is a button that activates the indicator. On the right, there is nothing particularly interesting. Here it is worth noting that the case is assembled perfectly – no unnecessary gaps, backlashes and other problems.

    On the back there is a USB Type C connector for connecting the charger and a hinge that allows you to open and close the lid.

    The hinge is equipped with a closer that completes the movement from about half of the trajectory in both directions, fixing the cover in the end positions.

    The earphones are well held by magnetic fasteners – they do not make a sound, even if you specifically shake the case near your ear. The blue backlight looks interesting, but it’s just for beauty and has nothing to do with UV processing. The latter turns on only during charging and when the lid is closed.

    To get the headphones out of the case, just move the bottom part a little to the side, after which they “pop” out of their slots. This is easy to do – the headphone case protrudes quite noticeably above the surface of the inside of the case.

    The Meridian logo is printed at the bottom of the case panel, spring-loaded charging contacts are clearly visible inside the headphone slots.

    Two LEDs are visible in the recess where the upper case and ear pads fit. The first, as we have already found out above, serves to highlight. But the second, directed inside the hole of the ear pads, is designed for ultraviolet treatment.

    Made by LG Tone Free in the “headphones with a stick” format. Some similarities with the Apple AirPods Pro can be traced, but there is no reason to draw direct analogies – the form factor has long been commonly used, and the device and price segment of the headsets are very different.

    Matte insert on the outer part of the sticks not only adds originality to the design, but also signals that this surface is touch sensitive.

    On the inner surface of the elongated part of the case, we see the mating contacts for charging.

    At the bottom of the “sticks” there are holes behind which microphones for voice communication are located.

    Two other microphones take part in the “ambient sound mode” – we see their holes at the top of the headphones.

    Medium length sound guide exits at an angle. Silicone nozzles are relatively “short”, but they provide a completely reliable fit – we will return to this issue.

    When viewed from the side, it is noticeable that the profile of the inner part of the shell has a slightly curved shape, providing better support on the ear cup.

    The ear pads are easy to remove and put back on, but still hold tight. Fixation is carried out using a recess on the “nose” of the sound guide.

    The sound guide outlet is covered with a plastic mesh. Above it is a compensation hole, next to it are the designations of the right and left earphones. A little further on, you can see the window of the infrared wearing sensor, which ensures the operation of the “smart pause” function.


    The headset supports Google Fast Pair, which makes pairing with Android devices as easy as possible. After opening the case, the headphones look for familiar devices, and then activate pairing. Next, a message appears on the smartphone screen prompting you to connect a headset. It remains to agree – and you’re done, LG HBS-FN6 can be found in the list of connected devices.

    Multipoint LG Tone Free HBS-FN6 does not support, which was verified by trying to connect it to a smartphone and PC running Windows 10 in parallel. At the same time, using the Bluetooth Tweaker utility, a list of supported codecs and their modes was obtained. There are only two codecs: the basic SBC, plus a slightly more “advanced” AAC. In headsets in this price segment, I would already like to see aptX, of course. But, it should be noted right away that it sounds very pleasant when using AAC – experts from Meridian know their business, but about this – in the appropriate chapter.

    The last step to connect and set up is to download the LG app – Tone Free. You can, of course, not do this, but then the user is deprived of the opportunity to update the firmware and a number of very useful settings. Download, give permissions, watch a small user manual.

    Control and software

    The headset is controlled by touch panels on the outside of the case. We would rate the quality of their operation as average – you can use it, but from time to time they do not register touches, which causes some irritation. At the same time, it is also rarely possible to correct the headset in the ear without pausing the track – it is almost impossible to do this without hitting the touch panel. Luckily, single-tap can be disabled using the Tone Free app, which we’ll get to.

    At the very top of the screen is the EQ preset selection menu. Four are installed by default. Immersive provides the best, according to the developers, “immersion” in music, Natural gives the most “natural” sound, and Treble Boost and Bass Boost emphasize the mids and lows, respectively. It is also possible to create two of your own presets using the eight-band equalizer.

    Tone Free does not have active noise cancellation, but there is a “surround sound” function – microphones can pick up external sounds and broadcast them to the speakers. The thing is quite useful if you need to quickly chat with someone without removing your headphones – at the checkout in a supermarket, for example. One of the app’s most useful features is, of course, touchpad customization.

    For each of them, you can choose your own action for single, double and triple pressing – from changing the volume to pausing the track. Only the long touch is not configurable – it always controls the “ambient sound mode” mentioned above. A single press can be disabled altogether, for this you need to select the item “Fixed settings”. Sounds a little illogical, but it works – apparently, translation problems. You can also enable automatic reading of incoming messages by voice for any of the installed programs.

    Another useful feature is headphone search. By pressing a button in the application, any of them can start to play a fairly loud sound, well audible in a more or less quiet environment. But it only works when the headset is connected to a smartphone – accordingly, if the headphones are in a closed case, you will have to look for them the old fashioned way. Also, using the application, you can update the firmware of the device and view information about it. The switch at the bottom allows you to turn on the so-called “smart sorting”, in which the most frequently used sections will rise to the top of the screen.

    And finally, it is worth noting that the LG Tone Free FN6 has wear sensors. When you take the headset out of your ear, the music can be paused, and when you return it, it can be played again. This function works quite correctly, but the ability to disable it is still periodically very lacking.


    In the ear, the headphones are held quite securely, but at the same time do not cause unnecessary discomfort. During classes in the gym, they remain in place, although with very sharp movements – jumping rope or working with a punching bag – the fastening gradually weakens. In general, LG Tone Free FN6 is quite suitable for playing sports – it keeps well, and there is water protection. But only IPX4 – you definitely shouldn’t be afraid of splashes of sweat and light rain, but you will have to run in the rain at your own peril and risk.

    The manufacturer claims up to 6 hours of operation of the headset on a single battery charge, in our tests they worked a little less. Recall that we test the headphones at a sound pressure level above the recognized safe 75 dB, since most listeners prefer a level in the region of 90-100 dB. We broadcast white noise into the headphones, fix the SPL level at an average value of 95 dB, immediately after the start we start recording the signal from the measuring stand – by the length of the resulting track, it is easy to understand how long each of the headphones worked.

    The headphones are discharged fairly evenly, so we won’t give separate results for each one, we’ll limit ourselves to general ones.

    Test 1 5 hours 19 minutes
    Test 2 5 hours 27 minutes
    Test 3 5 hours 20 minutes
    Average 5 hours 22 minutes

    The average battery life was 5 hours 22 minutes, the battery of the case lasts for two full charges of the headphones, plus one more fills the batteries by about 70 percent. As a result, we quite have the declared 18 hours of autonomy in general – not prohibitively much, but should be enough for a day. At the same time, fast charging is also supported – for 1 hour of listening in 5 minutes. Our result turned out to be a little more modest – about 50 minutes on average, which is also quite good. We charged, of course, using the supplied cable. Wireless charging is also supported, but it will take more time.

    Microphones for voice communication work acceptable, but no more than that. Our “test interlocutors” often complained about unpleasant reverberation and “sound like from a barrel”, asked to repeat what was said … In a noisy environment, talking became especially uncomfortable – we had to look for a quieter place. In general, as is often the case with TWS headsets: it is quite possible to answer a call and exchange a couple of phrases, but long conversations can become too tiring.

    And finally, the anti-bacteria function with UVnano technology. When the charging case is connected to power and closed, a UV LED inside turns on, which, according to the manufacturer, kills up to 99.9% of bacteria in the headphone mesh in ten minutes. It is quite difficult to verify this, but LG refers to the research of the German TÜV SÜD and the American Underwriters Laboratories (UL) – very solid expert organizations with a rich history.

    Sound and frequency response measurements

    As mentioned above, Meridian’s specialists know their business – the sound of the headset turned out to be quite interesting, although far from ideal. Still, we are talking about a fully wireless headset in the middle price segment – as they say, “you can’t jump above your head.” Nevertheless, listening to music in LG Tone Free FN6 is pleasant. First of all, thanks to a rather “smooth” and detailed middle. Vocals and parts of solo instruments are well read, which is already a considerable achievement for completely wireless headphones.

    There is a slight emphasis on the so-called “deep bass”, but it does not add boominess and does not affect the perception of the midrange. The upper frequencies are quite present, but served very restrainedly. Fans of “light sound” are unlikely to like it, but the HF register is completely devoid of its characteristic problems – in particular, the so-called “sand”. The sound turns out to be very comfortable and is quite capable of meeting the needs of even a listener who is more or less picky about the sound quality while walking or playing sports. Well, we don’t talk about “analytical listening” and the search for subtle nuances of recordings in the case of TWS headsets.

    The Immersive EQ setting is enabled by default, providing an “expanded sense of space” – apparently, the developers consider it the main one. Subjectively, it really gives the most interesting sound, therefore, to build the first frequency response graph, we will choose it.

    We draw the attention of readers to the fact that the frequency response graphs are provided solely as an illustration, which allows us to demonstrate the main features of the sound of the tested headphones. You should not draw conclusions from them about the quality of a particular model. The actual experience of each listener depends on many factors, ranging from the structure of the hearing organs to the ear pads used.

    The graph quite clearly illustrates everything said above. It is shown against the background of the IDF curve (IEM diffuse field compensation) provided by the manufacturer of the stand used. Its task is to help compensate for the resonant phenomena in the simulated auditory canal and the features of the equipment used, creating a “sound profile” that most correctly illustrates how the sound of the headphones is perceived by the listener. It can be seen as a device-specific analog of the so-called “Harman Curve” created by the Harman International team led by Dr. Sean Oliva. Compensate the resulting frequency response graph in accordance with the IDF curve.

    In this case, the compensated graph is not very indicative, although it is interesting in its own way. The peak in the region of 2-3 kHz on the target curve is intended to compensate for the resonance of the simulated auditory canal, but in this case it was not so pronounced. As a result, we see a rather significant drop in highs, which is not felt at all when listening. Next, let’s look at the graphs in all the presets of the built-in equalizer.

    As you can easily see, there are differences in sound, but not too pronounced. And they mainly concern the low-frequency range. In the Natural mode, designed to provide the most natural sound, the low-frequency range is slightly weakened, in Bass Boost it is predictably boosted, and Treble Boost differs not so much in the underlined mids as in the bass thoroughly taken to the background. Own presets created in the application can affect the sound much more – the headphones lend themselves well to equalization.


    Like all TWS headsets, LG Tone Free FN6 is focused on everyday music listening on the road, while playing sports and so on. And it copes with this task perfectly, providing remarkable sound quality for its segment. I was a little surprised by the lack of support for the aptX codec, but it turned out well without it as a whole. What definitely upset me was the questionable quality of the microphones for voice communication and the not the most stable operation of the sensors, and the autonomy could have been a little higher. But we were pleased with a convenient application for tuning, a comfortable and secure fit in the ear, and the presence of moisture protection. Well, the function of UV processing of the headphones while charging in the case is also a rather original bonus, which will surely find its connoisseurs.
