The Good The LG HBM-730 is a simple Bluetooth headset that's easy to use and wear. It has good sound quality and is very affordable.

The Bad The LG HBM-730 has an awkwardly placed LED indicator, and there's no call mute function.

The Bottom Line The LG HBM-730 is a basic Bluetooth headset with decent sound quality and an affordable price point.

LG seems to be churning out Bluetooth headsets like there's no tomorrow, with a slew of styles to fit a range of consumers. The HBM-730 is one of the more affordable models, and its style emulates that of the LG Chocolate in a way. It's tiny and comfortable, and has decent sound quality. Plus, as we said, it's affordable at only $39.99.

Measuring 1.66 inches long by 0.79 inch wide by 0.4 inch thick, the HBM-755 is certainly on the small side as far as headsets go. It has a curved bottom with a smooth, glossy black finish plus a red border that mimics the look of the LG Chocolate. Though it may not seem as if it's there, the multifunction button is actually on the device's front face, located underneath a red LED indicator. This presents a bit of a problem however, as we can't see the red LED while the button is pressed, and the LED is often an indicator of whether the headset is powered on or is being paired. Other than that, it's easy enough to press even when the headset is worn on the ear.
