  • Solid noise cancellation and audio performance
  • Compact charging case
  • Good battery life
  • Nothing in particular


LG Tone Free FN7 earphones deliver solid noise cancellation for their price. They block out low-frequency rumble like you might hear on a plane or train quite well. LG's Tone Free app for Android and iOS is essential, if for no other reason than it provides crucial firmware updates for the earphones.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Tone Free FN7 are $100 less than Apple's ubiquitous AirPods Pro. The earpieces ship with three pairs of eartips in small, medium, and large sizes. The fit is relatively secure, but it's possible for the earpieces to feel in place without a perfect seal. Battery life is estimated to be roughly five hours with ANC on or seven hours with it off.

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The LG Tone Free FN7 is available for $179.99 directly from LG, but is currently on sale for $146.99 at major online retailers like Amazon and Walmart. It follows on from last year's Tone FreeFN6, notable for a charging case that could clean the earbuds with an integrated UV light. The FN7 model lacks this feature, but with additions like active noise cancellation (ANC) is intended as an upgrade.

LG's Tone Free HBS-FN7 are its most premium true wireless yet. The long-stemmed earbuds take advantage of LG's partnership with Meridian. They feature a long stem and sizeable main body – an aesthetic that mirrors Apple's AirPods. The charging case has also undergone a change with the addition of a second LED light to its centre.
