LG is a proponent of the neckbuds. It introduced a new pair this week, and I have no explanation as to why neckbuds continue to be a thing.
The new LG Tone Active are retractable earbuds that you can wear around your neck. They have a microphone so you can talk on the phone or listen to music, and the battery will reportedly last for a little more than nine hours when playing music. This is essential for especially tough gym sessions. Apparently the enhanced curved design lets you work out with them on because they won’t slip off. Again, this is great if you love to sweat, especially around your ears and neck.
I can’t tell you about the audio, but I can tell you that you will definitely look like a sweat-coated dork while wearing these. You’re a wireless pioneer, though, so that’s okay. They cost $129 and come in either blue or black.
I bought some LG neckbuds at Target on impulse, AMA
