The LG Tone Free T90 earphones offer excellent audio quality that is topped off with Dolby Atmos and Dolby Head Tracking for a unique listening experience.

LG not only make great TVs and home appliances they also offer excellent earphones as well including the Tone Free T90 which now includes Dolby Atmos and Dolby Head Tracking – a world first.

So they are useful for enjoying your music, movies, TV shows and games which are now using Dolby Atmos audio to create a soundscape that comes from all directions.

And with Dolby Head Tracking the sound is pinned in front of you putting you at the centre of the scene.

As you move your head the sound stay in the same position relative to your head.

It like you’re at a concert and the stage is in front of you. If you turn your head to the left your right ear is closer to the stage and that’s where you hear the sound.

The T90 earphones do an amazing job with head tracking and, when combined with Dolby Atmos, you have a pair of headphones that add a whole new dimension to your listening.

The earphones have a short stalk but are fairly compact and offer a comfortable fit.

The charging case is also one of the smallest as well so it’s no effort to take the T90 earphones wherever you go.

On the audio side, the T90 sound excellent with plenty of detail and a generous helping of bass that carries across your music, movies and TV shows.

Under the hood is an 11mm driver which provides both the power and clarity.

It picks up all those sounds whether it’s the tinkle of broken glass or the sound of a guitar string which just adds to your enjoyment.
LG has once again partnered with Meridian which brings its Headphone Space Processing (HSP) technology which provides the acoustic qualities of a high-end speaker and shrink it down to fit inside an earphone.

The onboard Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) does a great job eliminating ambient sound so you can focus on your content. It’s not the best we’ve heard but it still does the job for your commute on a bus or a train or if you’re hopping on a flight.

And there’s also a Listening Mode for those times when you want to hear your surroundings.

There’s also Conversation Mode to amplify the voice of the person you’re speaking to, so you don’t need to remove your earphones. Useful whether you’re talking to someone in your office or ordering a coffee and the earphones can stay in the whole time.

Call quality was also above average so we could be heard clearly and the people we were speaking to also came through loud and clear.

The LG Tone Free T90 also have whisper mode so if you’re on a call you can remove the right ear bud, hold it close to your mouth and use it like a microphone.

The case also offers some features on its own – it can kill bacteria and wirelessly connect other devices.

The case includes UVNano which can kill 99.9 per cent of bacteria to keep things hygienic. This takes about 10 minutes and only works when the charging case is closed.

LG’s case is also a Bluetooth dongle which can connect devices like gym treadmills, TVs, computer and in-flight entertainment systems.

You connect a 3.5mm to USB-C cable and you will be able to listen to those devices wirelessly.

You get up to nine hours of battery life – that’s with ANC off but we got about up seven hours with ANC on. And there’s 29 hours of charge in the case as well.

The LG Tone Free T90 earphones are available now and are priced at $319.
