LG will unveil its most premium addition to the TONE Series of Bluetooth headsets at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Spain which runs from February 22-25. The new TONE Platinum delivers superior audio quality through a partnership with Harmon Kardon.
LG has adopted the Balanced Armature design as the sound module for the latest TONE Platinum model to minimise distortion – a design usually reserved for high-end wired earphones.
The headset features aptX HD Audio Codec to deliver CD-like quality audio over Bluetooth that faithfully reproduces the full audio bandwidth and minimises latency by significantly reducing the bit rate without affecting sound quality. It also offers noise canceling dual microphones for clearer calls even in the noisiest environments.
“The LG TONE Platinum is a showcase of innovative technologies that aims to deliver premium sound quality in a form-factor that millions of customers have come to embrace. LG’s TONE offerings are second to none in the wireless Bluetooth world which is a key growth area for our mobile business.” – Michael Park, vice president in charge of Innovative Personal Devices Business Division at LG Electronics.
“We are excited to collaborate with LG on the LG TONE Platinum. Harman Kardon has over 60 years of experience creating premium audio and ground-breaking sound technologies. When a product like the LG TONE Platinum carries the Harman Kardon name, it is confirmation that the device will offer class-leading audio quality and outstanding design.” – Michael Mauser, executive vice president and president of Harman’s Lifestyle Division
LG plans to roll out the latest premium Bluetooth headset in the United States in March, followed by other key markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America.
