Introduction


A couple of year ago, we got the chance to review the LG Tone+, a different looking pair of Bluetooth headphones that delighted us with its performance. After waiting quite some time, the latest model in LG’s popular Bluetooth headphones line is seeing a considerable update in the form of the LG Tone+ Infinim – one that’s most notable for its new Harman Kardon signature sound. Not only that, it also manages to be greeted with some other new features and a sleeker design, which will all hopefully drive this to be the perfect package for audio purists.

Packaging contains:

  • microUSB charging cable
  • Ear gel replacements
  • Owner’s manual

Design

Sporting a sleeker and more stylish design, the evolutionary design improvements also extend in the way it retracts the earbuds.

Right from the get-go, it’s quite obvious that LG takes fancy in the distinct design of its previous Bluetooth headphones in the line, so it’s no surprise that the LG Tone+ Infinim follows in the same manner. Naturally, it’s sporting an evolutionary design that makes it look more stylish and sleeker in size. Employing the same wrap-around-the-neck style of its siblings, the Tone+ Infinim flaunts a more stylized look than previous models.

Going with a two-tone color scheme, one that features gunmetal and black, it’s a sharp contrast that helps to accentuate its sleeker design. It’s still constructed out of plastic, but it’s honestly on the cheap side – so it gives the frame a little bit of hollowness. Overall, LG doesn’t deviate from the design language the series is known for, but they’ve made one major improvement to its design that we really appreciate.

And that’s the way the earbuds are retracted back into their nooks, whereas before, they simply dangled or were held on lightly by a magnetic connection. This time around, we can adjust the length to our liking, which then locks in place. Once we’re done using them, however, all that’s needed is to push on the buttons on the inner side of the frame to have the LG Tone+ Infinim automatically retract them into their resting positions – it’s simple, yet effective. As for the earbuds themselves, we opt to go with the ones that are slightly oversized to stay firmly in place in our ear.

Along the right side of the frame, we find its pause/play button, physical power switch, and a jog button for track forward and reverse. Meanwhile, the left side of the frame is home to the unit’s microUSB port, multi-function talk button, volume up/down job button, LED light, and microphone.

Based on its appearance, one would speculate that the LG Tone+ Infinim is a sporty styled pair of headphones. Indeed, we can agree to an extent to that, just because it’s not the kind that’s ideal for heavy motion or activity. For example, as it’s resting around our neck, the frame can juggle abruptly in different direction while jogging – something that becomes annoying very quickly. At the same time, it’s not weather treated to protect it against sweat, moisture, or water. Therefore, it’s a pair that works ideally while we’re resting or doing little motion.

Connectivity

Thanks to its Bluetooth 3.0 connection, we’re able to maintain a solid connection up to 25 feet with our connected device – a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in this particular case. Turning it on for the first time, the headphones automatically places itself into pairing mode. If that doesn’t commence, we can manually place it into pairing mode by holding down the multi-function talk button and then proceeding to switch it on. Whenever it’s powered on, the headphones audibly tells us its connectivity status and battery life.

Performance

Harman Kardon’s signature sound is in full force, as the LG Tone+ Infinim doesn’t disappoint with its excellent audio quality.

Thanks to its Harman Kardon signature sound technology, the LG Tone+ Infinim delivers outstanding audio quality with music playback! You won’t be disappointed at all, thankfully, as audio tones through the earbuds have a crisp, clear, and robust tone. In fact, it doesn’t seem to favor one audio range more than the others – albeit, there’s a subtle amount of bass that accompanies things. It doesn’t drown higher frequencies, really, as the entire audio package has a neutral tone. In typical response, the Harman Kardon signature sound brilliantly achieves acoustic perfection. You won’t be disappointed!

Switching over and using it for phones calls, the ear buds offer a decent amount of suppression when they’re worn – so there are no disturbances due to background noise. With its powerful volume, we’re able to decipher and comprehend every word uttered by our callers. Not only that, but our callers also say they have little issue on their end as well. Overall, the clean toned and succinct voices heard through the LG Tone+ Infinim makes long conversations easy to handle.

Battery


LG improves on its battery life too, as the Tone+ Infinim is rated to deliver up to 17 hours of talk time or 14 hours of music play time. Those are serious claims, but we’re delighted to say that we’re able to reach its claim of 14 hours of music listening – while setting its volume to the middle setting most of the time. In our experience, from a completely depleted battery level, it takes roughly 1.5 hours for its battery to be fully charge.


Conclusion


LG Tone+ Infinim Review
LG Tone+ Infinim Review
LG might not technically push out yearly upgrades to its popular Tone series of Bluetooth headphones, but the long wait between this and the previous model is well worth the wait – thanks in part to all of the considerable improvements we see in the LG Tone+ Infinim. For the most part, the company doesn’t deviate from the distinct design that the series is known for. However, we really appreciate the updated, sleeker design in combination with the new retractable feature of the headphones. In addition, the audio quality has leaped to a whole new level with the introduction of Harman Kardon sound signature technology, which of course, propels it to deliver outstanding and first-class results. In all fairness, you won’t be disappointed by the audio pumped out by the Tone+ Infinim.

However, one thing that might keep people at bay from picking it up is the unit’s hefty price tag of $150. Needless to say, that’s some serious dough for a pair of Bluetooth headphones of this caliber – one that’s technically not as generous with its features set. At its core, the Tone+ Infinim is your barebones in-ear headphones that offers phenomenal audio quality and long battery life. It doesn’t get treated to other amenities, like noise cancellation, NFC, or microphone amplification, which we see in other headphones. Regardless of that, if you prefer the in-ear style and prefer to focus on audio quality, you won’t regret picking this up – just be ready to unload a bunch of cash for it.
