The good: The LG HBS-700 headset has an unusual but very comfortable behind-the-neck design. It also has good audio quality, especially for music.
The bad: The LG HBS-700 can't support multiconnection and music streaming at the same time, and call quality suffered in noisier environments.
The bottom line: The LG HBS-700 is one of the most comfortable stereo Bluetooth headsets we've ever tried, plus it offers good audio quality at an affordable price.
Great Sound, Easy to Use, Great Gift!
by jillybeanruns on December 23, 2011
Pros: Battery life is 10 hours, sound quality is clear and it's easy to use!
Cons: According to LG they don't provide replacement earbuds, so if you lose one or never have a full set, you're out of luck.

Summary: I was recently selected to test this product out and love it! Great quality for the price! Makes it easy to talk while driving, getting things done around the house and it's comfortable to wear!
Simple, comfortable and effective!
by HRGeek on December 2, 2011
Pros: Simple design with controls that are easy to find and use.
Good sound quality
VERY comfortable - no more tangled cords!
No bulky earpods...it puts all the bulk / controls around your neck
Cons: The max volume is a little low
Limited multi-connection support when using a newer Ipod touch and smartphone

Summary: I am a "power commuter" travelling 90 minutes by train followed by a walk across NYC. I was looking for a wireless solution that would let me listen to my music without having to fuss with cords and also be able to manage connections from my iPod and phone. After a week of use, I am in LOVE with this. I can see where it might not be great for jogging or yoga, but for basic commuting, household chores, etc.... it is brilliant. I got it for $45 at Amazon, so you really cannot beat the value
Convenient, easy to use...must have!
by amandarae42 on November 30, 2011
Pros: comfortable, easy to use technology, long battery, quality sound, very handy for all situations!
Cons: Though they can hear me fine, people who I talk to claim they can tell when I am using the device. The sound quality is perfectly fine so as the user I can't tell the difference.

Summary: I was recently selected to test the LG TONE. It has been extremely useful around the house, driving, and working out! This product is surprisingly comfortable. There are times I forget I am even wearing it. Magnetic earbuds so they don't just hang.
The device vibrates on your neck to indicate an incoming call, won't miss a call because you can't find your phone! Great and safe for long rides in the car, chatting with friends and family makes the time fly. I'm recently learning to cook so its helpful to be able to have 2 hands available. I've used the product after work everyday for a few weeks and have yet to charge it, excellent battery life.
Perfect set for that person who is always "on the go"
by NutterButter12 on November 29, 2011
Pros: Cables do not tangle
One headset for many devices
Never fumble with your phone or MP3 player again (all the controls are on the headset)
Cons: Neckband can jiggle when running quickly or jumping
Summary: I love this headset! LG asked me to review the LG Tone headset. As a mother, full-time employee, and avid runner, I find it difficult to find the perfect headset ...
Summary: I love this headset! LG asked me to review the LG Tone headset. As a mother, full-time employee, and avid runner, I find it difficult to find the perfect headset that meets the demands of my daily activities. Well, this is the ONE! The neckband is worn comfortably around your neck, resting on your shoulders so seemlessly you won't even notice it's there. The cables for the earphones won't ever get tangled because they're integrated with the neckpiece. The signal gets paired with your phone or MP3 player. I use mine with my IPhone 4S using the bluetooth technology. This allows me to use the headphones for on-the-go phone calls (handsfree) while I'm driving or even while I'm walking the dogs or playing with the kids. I also use the headset while I'm at the gym working out or running outdoors. The headset is so versatile, it's amazing! I love that I can do my daily activities using my LG Tone without any hassle. Everything can be managed using the buttons on the neckband - so no need to navigate your phone/MP3 player to toggle songs or answer a phone call. The LG Tone can even read your text messages to you! I know several friends who will be getting the LG Tone for the Holidays this year!

Summary: Overall, the LG Tone Wireless Stereo Headset is a marvelous mobile communications device. This product has a wide-array of useful features, delivers incredible and clear sound, can play music, alerts you of incoming messages, and is water resistant, lightweight, durable, and exceptionally comfortable for such a product. I would strongly recommend the LG Tone to anyone who lives a very active and busy lifestyle. This is the ideal Bluetooth product for those who are constantly working out, traveling, or multi-tasking. The features that this device offers are unparalleled compared to other brands, and the price is unbeatable for such a remarkable product.
Comfortable, quality and convenient
by JustinD369 on November 28, 2011
Pros: Comfortable, intuitive and high quality audio
Cons: At first when I would turn my head it would jerk the ear bud, but then I realized you can adjust how much wire is free so now I can turn my head without a problem.

Summary: I was recently selected to test the new LG Tone Stereo Headset. I've used it commuting, traveling for the holidays and working out and so far I love it.
It's comfortable to wear around my neck and most of the time I don't notice it's there. The earbuds feel natural and don't make your ears hurt if you wear it for an extended period of time. The noise cancelling feature works surprisingly well.
I use my phone a lot so conserving battery life is key. When I'm done using the LG Tone I turn it off and it automatically turns off the music player on my phone so I'm not wasting the batteries.
The sound quality is great when listening to music and the microphone works well - when I'm speaking on the phone the other person doesn't have trouble hearing me.
I haven't used the text reader, but I think it's awesome that it can read text messages to you.
I would definitely recommend the LG Tone for anyone who commutes or travels and it's great for people who like to workout at the gym.
I selected to test out the new LG TONE stereo headset.

Summary: Here is what I think. I recently used the LG Tone headset while competing in a 5K race. Since this product has bluetooth capability, I was able to run my race while listening to music without any chords getting in the way, unlike previously when using my ipod that needed ear plugs that seemed like a mile long always getting in my way.
The sound quality exceeded my expectations. I love the fact that I can run at home while listening to music, but if someone calls, I can talk with exceptional sound quality. At home while working on the computer, I love being able to talk hands free!
The LG TONE is capable of enabling incoming texts that can be read aloud. Add this to your Christmas list since I would definetly recommend this product!
Great gift idea because of its versatility.
by neuggs on November 24, 2011
Pros: -- Versatility - phone, headset. I use it for everything from hands-free calling to my wireless headset when I workout.
-- Very lightweight and comfortable.
-- Great wireless Bluetooth technology.
Cons: -- Can't think of any.

Summary: My friends at LG hooked me up with an LG Tone to try out and I love it. It's easy to setup and use. It's super lightweight and when I cycle or run (I put it between layers of clothing when I run), I don't even know it's there.
I use my LG Tone every day - the hands-free phone is excellent, listening to streaming music in almost any situation is superb, and no wires is the greatest thing ever.
The versatility of it makes it a great gift idea for anyone who uses a cell phone or headphones. It's that good.
Perfect wireless(bluetooth) stereo smartphone headset
by robtkruger on November 24, 2011
Pros: Wireless (bluetooth), waterproof, great while working out. Used it for indoor & outdoor running & cycling. You can listen to music and still make/receive phonecalls. The magnetic earbuds which lock into the device is also a great innovation.
Cons: None that I have found out so far.
Summary: I was honored to receive one of these to test for LG. I am an endurance athlete so I have really pounded this headset in many different type of workouts. ...
Summary: I was honored to receive one of these to test for LG. I am an endurance athlete so I have really pounded this headset in many different type of workouts. I love that it is waterproof and that I no longer have to worry about cords bouncing around or getting caught in my clothes or getting the earbuds pulled out by the cord. I have used this in 32 degree weather and it was comfortable and the earbuds do not fall out. The sound quality is outstanding! The sound is even better than my really expensive wired earbuds. The weight of the headset that sits on around your neck is so lightweight that you will not realize it is there. I think this would be a great item for anyone who has a smartphone (I have an iPhone) and is tired of wires. I loved that you could listen to music and if calls came in you could talk without touching your phone. With voice calling, you can make calls while listening to music. I used this option while I was on the subway/metro and it worked perfectly. If you have someone who is hard to shop for, this would be a great option to get them.
Perfect for People on the Go!
by mmpayne15 on November 22, 2011

Summary: LG asked me to review its new stereo Bluetooth headset, and I am extremely impressed with the product! The sound quality is so good that it sounds like the music tracks are being played live in the next room. It's also an excellent headset for phone calls since it allows me to move around (and even jog!) while talking on the phone without losing the call. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is active and needs a reliable, multi-functional headset that is lightweight and affordable.
