    LG Tone Studio HBS-W120 - Wearable Personal Speaker - Titan Gray

    • Historically I have not been impressed with devices like this for use while speaking on a cell phone, but this device is actually really good as a Bluetooth headset
    • You wear this device around your neck like a collar rather than over or around the back of your head like traditional headsets.
    • This is a pretty cool wearable device that's easy to use and functions very well
    • I can’t imagine wearing a nicer audio device than this one.
    • Not the most fashionable device ever, but really handy if you want sound but don't want to wear headphones.

    • Great product and would recommend to anyone that hates the uncomfortable feeling of most headphones.
    • Not worth the price and had to return it this product doesn't make the wonders
    • Not worth the price and had to return it this product doesn't make the wonders
    • The product inside is seemed clear but I can't stop feel annoyed.
    • n’t lose the earplug because it is tide to the headset plus it nicely tuck away when not in used.- The earplug coil itself back into place by just tugging

    LG Tone Studio HBS-W120 - Wearable Personal Speaker - Titan Gray

    • It's a neat idea, but definitely not worth the cost.
    • It's a nice idea because a lot of people don't like having ear buds or big bulky headsets while working out, but please don't use this at the gym
    • I'm shocked that LG, a company I used to highly respect, would sink so low as to mislead their customers in order to increase sales
    • I thought this would have been a pretty cool idea to augment the earbuds audio capabilities, but that is not the case.
    • I really like the idea of wearing something around the neck instead of trying to listen to your phone from your pocket or always having to use earbuds

    LG Tone Studio HBS-W120 - Wearable Personal Speaker - Titan Gray

    • Overall, the quality of the technology is typically LG excellent but the sound of the speakers was a letdown for me.
    • Sound quality from the exterior speakers is very good, and I was even a bit impressed with the sound quality from the earbuds
    • The sound quality of the in ear plugs is good, better than my LG HBS700.
    • I'm shocked that LG, a company I used to highly respect, would sink so low as to mislead their customers in order to increase sales
    • My main problem is I like the gimmick of having the speakers, however two of them face into your shoulders and do nothing for the fairly poor sound quality

    • n’t lose the earplug because it is tide to the headset plus it nicely tuck away when not in used.- The earplug coil itself back into place by just tugging
    • While the amazing battery life and sound quality are impressive, I don't see much interest in this built-in speaker feature which does very little else than add considerable bulk
    • Battery life excellent as I keep the headphones connected to both business and personal phones daily
    • I'm shocked that LG, a company I used to highly respect, would sink so low as to mislead their customers in order to increase sales
    • Every generation introduced new features and benefits, such as improved battery life, better audio quality, cord winders

    LG Tone Studio HBS-W120 - Wearable Personal Speaker - Titan Gray

    • According to all of LG's hype about the Tone Studio, this was groundbreaking new technology that gave the listener "rich volume and theater-quality sound", "real 3D Surround" and the promise that, "the Wearable Bass speakers allow your body to feel the sound as if you are right there"
    • I also feel like the volume doesn't go high enough sometimes, especially in speaker mode
    • neat idea, poor volume.
    • Surround sound was good and the volume level appropriate
    • Sound volume not good, have to be in silent area to hear well

    LG Tone Studio HBS-W120 - Wearable Personal Speaker - Titan Gray

    • The whole point to a personal speaker system should be to let you enjoy your music privately
    • The music play back slightly weak ,minor quibble here
    • First the negative(s):- They may be a little big if you are worried about personal image in public
    • Maybe 2.5 x size of LG Tone Platinum?Ok done with the negative(s)
    • For some situations, this is all that I needed but in other situations I’d like a little more music and little less noise

    • Item arrived on time, and not damaged
    • Yul love this item if you want the most flexexsbility in a wearable device.

    LG Tone Studio HBS-W120 - Wearable Personal Speaker - Titan Gray

    • YES in that it's WAY higher sound quality compared to other portable speakers at similar price points
    • And if you want to use Bluetooth earphones, you would probably do better with regular ones that don't give you a speaker collar to hang around your neck
    • I've used it for quick conference calls, and a couple of other scenarios where multiple people around me wanted to listen to what I was listening to, but honestly the speaker on here is almost no better than what a current Android/iPhone would produce from their speakers
    • The speakers sound pretty good and the earbuds sound great.
    • While the earbuds provide a much truer sound reproduction, the speakers in the unit fall short of how it's described by the manufacturer.

    LG Tone Studio HBS-W120 - Wearable Personal Speaker - Titan Gray

    • It is nowhere near as good as listening to music through a nice set of headphones
    • Maybe 2.5 x size of LG Tone Platinum?Ok done with the negative(s)
    • First the negative(s):- They may be a little big if you are worried about personal image in public
    • LG’s answer is the TONE Studio wearable speaker; a nice set of speakers that lie comfortably on your shoulder and let sound fill your ears
    • Personally, I will give this 4 stars because it's a really nice set, but I just don't see the value of the speakers and the HBS1100 can be found and a much cheaper price point for similar sound quality out of the buds.

    • Maybe 2.5 x size of LG Tone Platinum?Ok done with the negative(s)
    • Now the earbuds, in my opinion, are excellent for music and blocking outside noise from interfering with the sound
    • This very cool looking LG Tone wearable personal speaker device is very useful in specific situations, where earbuds or headphones are impractical or unwanted, such as in situations where you'd prefer to hear the ambient sounds around you
    • Many of the reviewers agree with me, that the speakers are cr*p, but the earbuds are great
    • Not a big deal because the earbuds sound very good, but I prefer to not use them because I like feeling the music and I’m often not around anyone else

    • I have tried various Bluetooth headphones and ear pieces before and to be honest for the most part I didn't like them at all.
    • Love these wireless headphones but a bit bulky, cumbersome to wear but works great
    • I've had the headphones for a couple of months now, and no problem, but I do like the push button retractable style better in the previous headsets
    • Love these wireless headphones but a bit bulky, cumbersome to wear but works great
    • I've tried various solutions on the internet and none of them work - I consider this a done deal - W10 does not like these headphones

    • First the negative(s):- They may be a little big if you are worried about personal image in public
    • I sure hope they go back to the drawing board on this device instead of throwing the concept out, because if the audio quality was as good as advertised, this would be the ideal headset for receiving TV or phone audio in my home
    • : This is the use case where the headset performed reasonably well in a relatively quiet space

    • Here in the Bronx I see young people walking around with hand held Bluetooth speakers annoying the older people, those young people will love these.
    • Annoy other people by using these in public, or befriend neighbors by not blasting the TV or music late at night
