- Lightweight, intuitive design. Probably the best wireless, in-ear design on the market today. No heavy plastic or bulky casing that weighs you down in the back. The neckstrap is surprisingly comfortable and doesn't interfere with whatever you're doing. Controls can be reached easily, and response time is excellent (no wireless lag). There are also magnets that hold the earbuds firmly in place when not in use - a very nice touch to the device.
- Great audio quality. It's better than the pair of wired Sony earbuds I have. It doesn't match up to the audio quality of other wired headphones like the Bose IE2 or B&W C5, but those are very high-end headphones, so that's to be expected.
- Simple, intuitive setup, especially if you have an iMac/Macbook. The Bluetooth process could not be simpler.
- Respectable battery life. I listen to music everyday for a couple hours and so far I've only had to charge it every other day. That's not bad, considering how small the battery is.
- Range of features. SMS Reading, vibrating call alert, automatic reconnect, etc. - I don't use these features but they're nice to have.
- Clean packaging design. Not that this matters to most people, but being an industrial design, I enjoyed the simplicity and how easy it was to remove the headphones from the packaging. No unnecessary foam, tape, paper, books, or plastic wrap that typically plagues most other brands.
- Wire wrapping. Standard wired headphones have wires that drop downward from your ears, connect in a V-shape into a single cord, which in turn, connects to your device. For the LG Tone, the wires that connect the earbuds to the neckstrap are looped in a strange way. This makes them flair outwards so it's a bit strange if you look in the mirror. I don't understand why the cord can't just go from your earbud straight down instead of passing it through a rubber holder.
- Earbuds. They could be a tad more comfortable and a bit harder to pop off from your ears. Not too big an issue though, just being critical here.
