Commenting on the announcement, Chung Sue-hyun, vice president of Innovative Personal Devices Business Division at LG Electronics, said:
The original Tone Infinim set a new standard for wireless headset design. We delivered an audio solution that offered days of battery life, a comfortable fit that didn’t fall off the neck when unused and most importantly, fantastic sound. It’s no wonder the LG Tone Infinim series is the most copied design in this product category.
