LG Electronics has added a new mid-budget Bluetooth headset to its growing portfolio of diversified Bluetooth headset products.
Dubbed LG TONE ULTRA HBS-810, the device will go on sale late August in the United States, followed by key markets in Asia and Europe.
The HBS-810 is an upgraded successor to the TONE ULTRA HBS-800 model and reportedly provides an enhanced audio experience. The latest TONE ULTRA headphones deliver premium quality sound, made possible through collaboration with JBL.
The TONE ULTRA's Quad-Layer Speaker Technology provides enhanced bass and middle-range tones and boosts overall sound quality through optimised audio equalisation. The flexible silicone gel earpieces fill the ear cavity, providing maximum sound insulation and clear music playback with very little outside interference.
The new TONE ULTRA also comes with advanced features that were previously available only in high-end headsets. LG's innovative wire management technology makes ear buds completely retractable, leaving no tangled wires and helping the headset maintain its sleek profile at all times.
The two-way jog button makes it easy to control volume as well as content, with options like fast-forward and rewind readily available.
"We are excited to add another new product to our TONE ULTRA portfolio, opening up more options to enjoy the ultimate sound quality that comes with a Bluetooth stereo headset," said Seo Young-jae, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, in a statement.
"With so many premium features available at such a highly competitive price, we hope that more people will be able to experience the superior quality of our Tone Series Bluetooth headsets for themselves," he added.
Details of price and availability will be announced locally at the time of the launch. Visitors to LG's Booth at IFA 2015 (Hall 18 of Messe Berlin) can also experience the new TONE ULTRA from 4 to 9 September.
