Whether you use Apple Music, Tidal, or Spotify, the hype around spatial audio is all-encompassing is clear, and we’re not just talking about how the music sounds. Due to its rise in popularity, countless tech brands have had a hand in making compatible earphones for the occasion, and LG is the latest to get in on this omnidirectional tech with its latest flagship true wireless earbuds, the Tone Free T90Q.
But LG did more than just make its new buds compatible with spatial audio. The brand’s new flagship earbuds are the first in the world to implement Dolby Head Tracking technology from Dolby Atmos. The tech is meant to throw you into the heart of your favorite songs, movies, and games by adapting the sound to match your movement, always keeping you in the center of the action and fully enveloped in sound. In addition to Dolby Atmos, the Bluetooth buds feature a built-in equalizer from Meridian to deliver hi-fi audio across the board. As far as battery life goes, the Tone Free T90Q buds offer up to 29 hours of playtime on a single charge.
While their audio capabilities are something to behold, the earbuds’ innovative charging case is another great reason to consider the Tone Free T90Q. The UVnano+ case features UV-C light capabilities that kill up to 99.9% of bacteria on each bud’s eargels in a matter of 10 minutes. Keeping your earbuds clean can be frustratingly difficult, which makes this new standard-setting addition something for future manufacturers to keep in mind.
The headphones are impressively durable, too, as they garner an IPX4 rating for water resistance — after all, new earphones come about pretty often, so you should pick up a pair that is guaranteed to last. Upon their expected release in September, LG’s Tone Free T90Q Wireless Earbuds will be available through the Korean gadgeteer’s online store for $230.
