LG unveils AirPods rival that cleans itself

LG's new self-cleaning true wireless earbuds are coming to the U.S. next month

The company is yet to announce pricing for any of these markets, although last year's LG Tone Free earbuds retailed for US$199.

LG announced a pair of earbuds this morning with a unique feature found inside of the case they're housed in. These earbuds feature an improved design over the companys first-generation of TWS earbuds called TONE+ Free. This UVnano case - which comes in matte black or glossy white finishes - is said to eliminate bacteria and germs during charging sessions.

The wireless earbuds otherwise promise a snug fit for decent noise isolation, with a "canal-type" design that looks likely to burrow a little deeper than some buds for added stability.

LG says it was motivated by studies claiming that earbuds harbor more bacteria than a kitchen cutting board.

Available in black or white, there are two new sets of LG Tone wireless earbuds on the way, the LG HBS-FN6, £149, and the LG HBS-FN4, £99, with both due on sale in the United Kingdom from 6th July.

The new HBS-FN6 and HBS-FN4 true wireless earbuds boast HSP (Headphone Spatial Processing) technology from Median, which is claimed to simulate the experience of listening to real loudspeakers. With the charging case, the earbuds offer a total of 18 hours of listening time.

Both Tone Free models feature customized EQ settings and four presets - Natural, Immersive, Bass Boost and Treble Boost. A byproduct of the new look is that the FN6 and FN4 look more like AirPods than their predecessor did, but that's not a bad thing. On a single charge, both earbuds deliver about six hours of playback.

The HBS-FN6 and HBS-FN4 will launch in the United Kingdom and the U.S. next month. That's far from leading in this market, so we assume the UV cleaning portion of the case uses up space and battery life in its own right.
