It has a IPX4 rating for protection against splashing water, rain and perspiration while working out, giving the HBS-FN6 enhanced usability and durability.

LG’s innovative UVnano charging case provides protected storage, hassle-free charging and enhanced hygiene for the HBS-FN6. Studies have shown that earbuds can harbour more bacteria than other places such as a kitchen cutting board, that could lead to potential ear infections. Since consumers nowadays use a lot of their smartphones and earphones listening to music, entertainment or communication, it’s good to know about this! LG’s UVnano case utilise built-in ultraviolet light, eliminating 99.9% of E. coli and S. aureus from the non-toxic hypoallergenic silicone ear gel and inner mesh.

The HBS-FN6 deliver an extra dimension of audio, courtesy of HSP (Headphone Spatial Processing) technology from Meridian – LG’s long-standing audio partner in delivering superior sound – powered by Digital Signal Processing, a technology that Meridian has been perfecting for over 25 years.

The new earbuds also come with customized EQ sound settings developed by Meridian with each mode offering four unique presets to deliver a perfectly tailored listening experience: Natural for authentic and balanced sound, Immersive for an expanded sense of space, Bass Boost for that extra punch and Treble Boost for greater clarity to vocal performances. Noise isolation provided by the snug-fitting eartips provide a tight seal that blocks out most distracting exterior noise, while Ambient Sound Mode allows wearers to hear what’s going on around them with the press of a button.
