LG has announced new wireless audio wearables. They promise to bring convenience thanks to a dedicated Google Assistant button which also offers real-time translation at the press of a button with Google Translate. Promising faster access due to a more responsive AI means that communicating in another language will be quicker and more natural and that users can activate Google Assistant without having to invoke a trigger phrase, “OK Google”.
Available in black, blue and gold, Kim Tae-gyun, head of LG’s Companion Device Business Division said about LG’s newest earphones: “LG brought a new paradigm to wearable audio products with smart features of our successful TONE series and we continue to innovate with our latest models. We are committed to delivering more great audio wearable products to consumers worldwide.”

Another new device, LG TONE Ultra SE, features an external mono speaker in addition to earbuds. With the external speaker, users can make calls and listen to music without blocking out ambient sounds, ideal when one needs to be aware of the surroundings. Both the LG TONE Platinum SE and LG TONE Ultra SE feature dual MEMS microphone for superb call clarity and support for the Tone & Talk smartphone app.
Visitors to LG’s IFA booth in Hall 18 of Messe Berlin from August 31 to September 5 will have a chance to experience the TONE series of earphones up close. Additional details including price and purchase locations will be announced locally at the time of availability.
The latest and most advanced wearable wireless audio products from LG Electronics (LG) will be unveiled at IFA 2018 from 31st August to 5th September 2018.
