LG Tone Free FP9 review: High on features

LG Tone Free FP9 supports Bluetooth 5.2 and AAC code. The earbuds promise to offer a connection range of 10 meters. In order to pair the earbuds to your smartphone, you will have to keep the earbuds in the charging case and open the cover. Now you have to press and hold the touch-sensitive area on the left and right earbud for up to 5 seconds and the battery indicator blinks in blue to enter pairing mode. The earbuds also come with Google Fast Pairing support so if your smartphone supports the functionality then the earbuds can be connected by simply opening the charging case. We tested the earbuds with the OnePlus 10 Pro 5G and we never faced any issue with the pairing.

The earbuds offer multiple touch controls — you can touch them once to answer a call and play or pause the music. You can decrease the volume by touching the left earbud twice. The volume can be increased by touching the right earbud twice.

You can skip to the next song by touching the left earbud three times. Lastly, you can long-press to activate noise cancellation and ambient sound mode. These are the default settings, but you can also customize the touch settings as per your liking using the LG Tone Free companion app. The app is available on both Android and iOS operating systems. The LG Tone Free app also allows you to enable the gaming mode from the Tone Free Lab. The earbuds also offer a whispering mode that offers greater privacy and clarity to users during calls. The mode allows users to hold the right earbud to their mouths as a dedicated microphone for answering and making calls.

Apart from this, the LG Tone Free FP9 also offers an interesting and useful feature — External device connection mode. The true wireless earbuds offer a plug and wireless mode that enable users to connect the headset to a device that does not have Bluetooth connectivity like a radio or desktop computer or an in-flight entertainment system. To activate the mode, you will have to push the Plug and Wireless Mode switch present on the charging case. Now you will have to connect the USB Type C cable to the charging case and connect the other end of the AUX cable to the headphone jack and then you can start listening to the sound using your LG earbuds. The feature works fine but the volume levels are not that high.

The LG Tone Free FP9 features an 8mm custom-built driver unit. The company has collaborated with Meridian Audio for the tuning of the driver. The LG Tone Free FP9 offers pretty good audio quality. You can clearly hear the vocals and instruments. For a better sound experience, we would recommend you to download the LG Tone Free app.
The app offers multiple settings such as Immersive, Natural, Bass Boost, Treble Boost, and 3D Sound Stage. These settings enhance the sound out of the earbuds. You can also customise the equalizer settings using the app for better audio performance. The earbuds only have AAC support and the low-latency gaming mode will be liked by the gamers out there.

The LG Tone Free FP9 manages to offer quite decent noise isolation and the triple microphones embedded in the device ensure proper voice clarity during calls. The earbuds also work well in reducing the background noise to some level when you are using them in a crowded place. As mentioned earlier, LG Tone Free FP9 comes with active noise cancellation support. The earbuds do offer active noise cancellation but the level of noise cancellation was not that great. Earbuds from Apple and Samsung offer much better performance in this department.
