LG has just announced the upcoming release of its new batch of true wireless headphones. The Tone Free FP9, FP8 and FP5 promise active noise reduction, 3D spatialization, and Bluetooth antenna system for the FP9 model.

It’s getting complicated to navigate LG’s true wireless headphone lineup. With the release of the Tone Free FP9, FP8 and FP5, the South Korean brand presents no less than seven different models, each with its own specificity. The last three references highlight a new 3D audio virtualization system, the Headphone Spatial Processing, which allows the transformation of the stereo flow into a spatialized signal, following the example of what Yamaha announced with its YH-L700A headphones. All this is possible thanks to the integration of the technology developed by Meridian, still in charge of the acoustic design of LG’s audio products. The manufacturer also says it has redesigned the acoustic architecture of its headphones with larger drivers, ensuring “more powerful bass without compromising on clarity.”

The FP9 and FP8 models also have special features. They benefit from the UVnano technology, already embedded in some LG headphones of the FN range, which would eliminate “up to 99.99% of certain bacteria” present near the speakers of the earphones. The FP8’s case also shows support for inductive charging, while the FP9’s case is capable of retrieving the analog audio stream from a wired device (via mini-jack) and transmitting it to the headphones via Bluetooth, as is already the case withBowers & Wilkins’ PI7s.
