Gg Regular readers will recall that I’m partial to wireless stereo Bluetooth headset review and follow with interest the development of the line of headsets LG’s design allows you to wear it around his neck like a necklace (option: a collar or collar). I have to review the model LG HBS-900 Infinum, which compares it with the HBS-730 headset, which I use constantly. Today we will focus on the low-end model in this series – HBS-500.
What is it Bluetooth headset review LG Tone + HBS-500?
It is a wireless stereo Bluetooth headset review that supports Bluetooth 4.1, which is comfortable to wear. Her weight is not felt in the neck, and if the headphones fall out of your ears, you will not ever fall (they are on the short wire). This design allows the battery is placed inside a relatively large capacity, which according to the specs is enough for seven and a half hours of music playback.
How is it different from its predecessors?
The main advantage of the Bluetooth headset review LG HBS-500 – is its price. All of it made for a single purpose: to make the price tag as low as possible. Unfortunately, 45$ (that is the recommended retail price) now does not look like a small sum, because a couple of years ago for that kind of money, you could buy almost flag model. But, if we translate the amount into dollars, you get something like 45 that, in general, quite a few. Especially if you remember about the long running time, about 7 years ago that such a device could be well worth all of $ 200, as well as on how much-advanced technology for that time.
How does it sound Bluetooth headset review LG Tone + HBS-500 ?
Miracles do not happen: I have to state that the sound of the Bluetooth headset review is its weakest spot. The sound is much worse than my HBS-730, which can be bought today for not much more money.
How convenient to use it?
That is in use, except for the sound, I differences with the more expensive models have not noticed. Management has even become easier, because the manufacturer has reduced the number of keys, between them constantly smooching (note also that in my work I often have to change the headset so fine motor skills simply do not have time to get used to the new location of the keys, I’m sure that if the months to use discharge, and that same model, so there is no problem).
Significantly worse became plastic. It is evident that it is more coarse and cheap, the surface is not so pleasant to the touch, as I used to.
What is this headset battery life?
As surprising as it sounds (usually manufacturers overstate the battery life, making measurements at some average volume), but I have a Bluetooth headset review worked (and I always listen to music at maximum volume) those seven and a half, and even eight hours. This measurement is not made in one day, but with a break in order to better meet the real use case.
Where are the limits of flexibility headset?
As you can see in the photo, design HBS-500 allows you strongly enough to stretch its supporting structure. Plastic is flexible, but with some memory effect – everything always comes back to its original state.
Most importantly, does it make sense to buy it?
If the task is as cheap as possible to buy in the store a wireless stereo Bluetooth headset review, and you are not willing to buy Chinese device, then this option may have the right to life. Especially if you’re standing in front of the store is not quite so, and scored the shelves of goods (you have seen a lot in stores wireless stereo headsets on the shelves? That’s it). But it’s much more fun to bring any other model LG (730, 750, 800), who will manage the money for 10-15$ more expensive, but, for example, will support aptX.
