PROS

  • Thanks to Harman Kardon's sound engineering, audio performance is generally impressive.
  • The design is sleek and the unit comes with retractable earbuds--so no more loose wires.
  • If you venture too far from your phone's range, you'll get a vibrate alert when a call comes in.

CONS

  • The earbuds themselves are plastic and look a little cheap.
  • The around-the-neck design won't work for everyone, if you wear scarves or necklaces, for instance.
  • The price is a tad hefty, considering the limited number of features.
LG's Tone Infinim headset is shaped like a horseshoe and sits flat around your neck. The earbuds retract into the headset, letting you manage the wire length to suit your comfort level. The headset promises stellar audio quality, owing to Harman Kardon's sound signature. The jog button lets you access the music and volume controls. LG advertises up to 14 hours of music time and up to 17 hours of call time. The company includes a charging cable and extra eartips.

I found the controls for volume and track to be a bit annoying. The volume is slow to respond and makes an exceptionally aggravating level indicator beep every time you use it. To get the vibrate toggle, you long-hold in the volume up position. For battery, long-hold in volume down.
