My cousin surprised me with a very early birthday present, the LG Electronics Tone Pro HBS-750 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headset that you wear around your neck. This has been a godsend on dog walks when I need the use of my hands.
The device easily pairs with your smart phone allowing you to roam several feet away from your phone. When I’m not talking to someone, the earbuds tuck neatly into the ends of the Tone Pro “collar.” When I receive a phone call, the device vibrates, I touch a button on the side and the call is activated. I touch that same button to end a call. When I want to place a call, I tell Siri who I want to reach and she connects me using the LG Headset.
The LG Tone Pro can also be used to listen to music or other recorded material from your phone. Today I listened to Italian lessons on youtube via my phone and headset. The device easily recharges using a USB cable and has lit colors indicating low battery, full charge and currently charging.
I must admit I’m a sucker for gadgets, but this is one little gizmo that has improved my life. My large dog has ruined three sets of wired earbuds stretched from my phone to my ears. Now, unless he aims for my throat, my headset is out of his reach. Thanks, cuz.
Here is the headset on Amazon for $42.49.
