Just a few days after unveiling a levitating portable speaker, LG has announced a number of wireless wearable audio products that will hit the CES 2017. Considering that sometimes you want to listen to music without putting something in your ear, the Korean company has developed a speaker named LG Tone Studio, a plastic speaker that wraps around your neck like a sci-fi horseshoe and blasts surround sound up at the wearer’s ears. The second one is the LG Tone Free, a wireless set of neck buds that can charge the wireless earbuds when stored inside the neckband.
The LG Tone Studio offers something you never asked the neckband technology to be. The company claims their Tone Studio provides wearers with a theatre-like full surround sound experience, which may be considerable while you’re at home. However, someone must be inconsiderate enough to use them outside of the home.
However, the Tone Free makes a certain kind of senses of the two devices. The neck unit ensures a suitable place to store the earbuds to prevent them from losing. At the same time, it provides vibrating alerts to incoming calls and texts. Besides, it lets you accept or dismiss calls with voice command.
LG hasn’t revealed the price and release detail yet but planned to unveil them at CES 2017 next week. If you miss the program, don’t worry. You’re to most likely find them as an upsell item with your next phone in a few months.
