LG's latest buds face a wave of noise-canceling competition, including the new Jabra Elite 85t, Bose's QuietComfort Earbuds, the 1More True Wireless ANC, and of course Apple's AirPods Pro.

LG Electronics Inc. on Monday released premium wireless earbuds with an active noise cancellation (ANC) system in South Korea as the company seeks to expand its presence in the wearables market.

While the silicone ear tips will provide passive noise cancelation, the three microphones (2 outer + 1 inner) on each earbud will be canceling the unwanted noise to offer active noise cancelation.

Furthermore, LG TONE Free HBS-FN7 earphones can recreate a realistic soundstage that simulates the experience of listening to real loudspeakers while also delivering vocals with pristine clarity, completely immersing the listener.

The active noise cancellation setup makes use of three microphones on each earbud - two outer and one inner - for the promise of blocking out nearly all environmental noise so that users can focus on the music. Regarding the battery backup, the HBS-FN7 claims a battery life of five hours on the earpieces.

LG's new HBS-FN7 includes all the key features of the HBS-FN6 launched earlier this year, including Meridian-tuned audio and the UVnano charging case.

With the ANC turned off, the earbuds will last up 7 hours on a single charge. The earphones are available in Glossy White and Matte Black color variants. That charging case can deliver another 15 hours of earphone play time before it will need plugging in. The charging case of the earphones possesses LG's UVnano technology which emits UV rays to kill the bacteria on the earphones and sanitizes it. The earphones use Bluetooth 5.1, with support for the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs. The FN7 buds are launching in South Korea today, but will arrive in North America, Europe and elsewhere in Asia starting sometime in the fourth quarter of 2020. The earphones come with IPX4 rating which means it is resistant to dust and splashes.
