The LG Tone Free wireless earphones’ initial iteration was tested by us last year. The LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano, its older sibling, is now in the spotlight. This model also includes a UV cleaning mechanism in the case with some useful updates. In today’s review of the LG Tone Free FP9W, we’ll see if they actually distinguish themselves from the competition.
LG Tone Free FP9W review: Design
The pearly white, little charging case and twin LG Tone FreeFP9W UV Nano audio earplugs are included right out of the box. The enclosure is solidly constructed. An LED indication is provided up front, and a USB Type-C charging connector is provided at the back. The LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano wireless headphones can be connected to them wirelessly using the slider button on the left side of the casing, which can be connected to any 3.5mm aux port; more on this in the performance section.
The twin earbuds are enclosed in a blue tint when you open the clamshell casing. Yes, the LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano wireless earphones have a built-in UV cleaning system that activates when you put them back in the case. In essence, it employs UV light to clean and sanitise the earbuds of any bacteria or viruses. According to LG, this technology kills 99% of bacteria.
We thought the LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano wireless earphones were extremely upscale and well-built. Each one has a stem and a big audio driver inside a conch-like shell. Additionally, each of these has three microphones and can actively cancel noise. Additionally, each audio plug contains a sensor that pauses the music once it is removed from the ear. When you plug them back in, the music will resume immediately.

Additionally, the tap feature is supported by the LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano audio earbuds. Users can tap once while holding to turn ANC on or off. To boost volume, double-tap the right earbud; to lower volume, do the same on the left. The music can be paused with only one tap.
LG Tone Free FP9W review: Performance
The performance of the LGTone Free FP9W UV Nano audio earplugs is the most thrilling aspect of the device. One of the greatest companies in the industry, Meridian, tuned these earbuds. The sound is excellent and an upgrade from the prior design. The treble is excellent, and the bass is strong. What you get is excellent audio with clear vocals. The LG Tone Free app, which users may download from the iOS or Android app store for their specific phone models, also features EQ choices.
We listened to a lot of music on it thanks to Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity. Even though the shot to sound latency is relatively minimal, we still played games on it like BGMI. That would be adored by gamers. These also include three medical-grade silicone tips that can be used in any ear canal. We took them for a run, but we never had the feeling that they were about to come out.
The LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano audio earbuds are rated IPX4 in addition to that. This implies that they won’t be ruined by sweat in this hot climate or light raindrops. Additionally, they respond to each tap well. The outcome happens very instantly. On most counts, active noise cancellation (ANC) performs excellently. You do wind up blocking out the majority of the loud outside sounds while it is on. However, that does use a little bit more battery power.
In relation to that, LG states that the LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano audio earplugs would provide customers with a battery life of 10 hours. With ANC off, we managed to get roughly 8.5 hours of battery life. It decreased by an additional 45 minutes after ANC was enabled. The good news is that it can charge quite quickly. It’s amazing how much playing time you can obtain with just five minutes of charging. Users will have an additional 14 hours of battery life with the included case.
Additionally, Samsung has introduced a UV steriliser for Rs 3,599 in India.
With the included USB Type-C to USB Type-A charging connection and any charger, the LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano audio earplugs’ case may be charged. Users also receive a Type-C to 3.5mm aux connection with it, which enables them to connect the case to any source that lacks BT wireless connectivity and turn it into a wireless device. Simply switch the case’s slider to the wireless position and plug it into, say, the entertainment system in your car or on an aeroplane using the cable to make it wireless. That is certainly clever and forward-thinking.
The LG Tone Free FP9W UV Nano audio earplugs cost Rs 29,990, which is quite expensive. which might be out of reach for some. Is the pricing reasonable, then? To a large extent, sure. These audio earphones feature UV cleaning technology, superior wireless connectivity, a relationship with Meridian, and exceptionally good music performance. The advantages are overly numerous. In addition, compared to other devices in the same price range, the battery life is very considerable. Additionally, you receive a complimentary external Ganesha case from them to give it a little extra oomph. In conclusion, if you can afford it, purchase it.
