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 t3 have found the following[***]:
Water and sweat-resistant with an IPX4 rating, they can withstand a few splashes but won't survive being fully submerged in water. Each earbud has three microphones to help reduce noise and cancel out any echo. UVnano technology in the charging case which kills 99.9% of bacteria on the earbuds is one of the big wins for these earphones.

Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The Tone Free FN7 is a quality option…when on sale. The improved controls are a highlight, along with the handsome tiny charging case. Battery life is rated at 5 hours with ANC on. Clarity was better on video chats, but volume was still lower than I would have liked.

  • Sleek design
  • Easy to use controls
  • Excellent battery life
  • Mediocre noise cancellation
  • No UV-cancelling


Sentiment Score[*] 74%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
LG FN7 earbuds have active noise cancellation. ANC feels more complementary to the sound rather than an effective feature on its own. IPX4 rating ensures that the FN7 can handle sweat and a moderate amount of rain. Each earbud can hold up to three distinct operations for total of six inputs to change the volume, playback, track skipping, as well as activation of any voice assistants.

  • Great sound quality
  • Great battery life
  • Noise cancellation isn’t as effective as on the FN6


Sentiment Score[*] 65%
Reviewers from whathifi have found the following[***]:
The LG HBS-FN7 earbuds are well made and are pleasant to control. Bass sounds are textured and carefully hefty, with more than enough detail available to make the difference between actual instruments and machine-derived sounds obvious. Without a rhythm to get tripped up by, the LGs are a confident and poised listen. But their lack of rhythmic ability and ordinary noise-cancelling rather mean there are more compelling options around.

  • Impressive noise-cancellation
  • Decent battery life
  • Not the most dynamic
