First Look: LG Bluetooth Stereo Headset HBS-700

1:26 /

The LG HBS-700 is one of the most comfortable stereo Bluetooth headsets we've ever tried, plus it offers good audio quality at an affordable price.

I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com and this is a First Look at the LG HBS-700 stereo Bluetooth headset. At first glance, the headset looks kind of messy with all these wires hanging about here but it's actually a very comfortable design. What you do is you put the neckband behind your neck, you take the earbuds outside of the middle magnetic pockets at the bottom here, and you pop the earbud in your ear. You wear the headset so that these 2 pods hang around your neck like 2 ends of a scarf. Each pod houses different controls. The one on the right houses the Play/Pause button and the Track Shuttle keys. The one on the left has the Call button as well as the volume rocker. Also, on the side of the left pod is the charger jack. Overall, the HBS-700 has really good audio quality. It even has an equalizer setting to change from Normal mode to Bass mode. We can also answer, end, and reject calls. With such a comfortable and lightweight setup, the HBS-700 is perfect for commuters or those in the gym. The LG HBS-700 is only $80 retail. I'm Nicole Lee, this has been a First Look at the LG HBS-700 stereo Bluetooth headset.
